Navratri Special – Festival of Worshiping Nine Form of Maa Durga
Well wishes of Navatri Friends! We have born in the culture where every day is a festival. Our country is full of festival (Utsava) that indicates to live every day of life in Happiness and Joy. There are varieties of festivals we celebrate but few are major. Main festivals such as Holi, Diwali, Dashehra, Janmastmi, Maha Shivratri and Navratri are some important Indian festivals. Every festival is important in itself none is less.
Navratri is one of the most important Indian festival broadly celebrated in whole country. Navratri comes two times in a year, Winter Season Navratro (Shardiya Navratri) and Spring Season’s Navratri (Vasantiya Navratri, Chaitri Navratri). In the winter it comes in month of October and in April of Spring Season (this year it starts from 11 April 2013). Navratri is so holy festival that has much importance in Hindu Culture.
Navratri is the festival of worship of Maa Durga (Form of Strength). Festival goes to nine nights so it is called Navratri. Every day is special in whole Navratri. Actually there are nine forms of Maa Durga and every single day is considered as a form of Goddess. So 9 form of Maa Durga is worshiped up to nine days.
