Happy Navratri

The time of the year - Navratri - holds immense religious significance in the Hinduism culture. Corresponding to either March or April of the Gregorian Calendar, Chaitra Navratri falls in the Chaitra month according to the Hindu calendar, the first day of which also marks the Hindu New Year. The Chaitra Navratri this year begins on 2nd April and continues for the following nine days, till 11th April.

During Navratri, nine Hindu goddesses, namely Shailaputri or Pratipada, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanta, Kushmanda, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kaalratri, Mahagauri, and Siddhidatri are worshipped.

Every year, Navratri festivities are celebrated four times. One during the Jan-Feb season, other (Chaitra) during the Mar-Apr season, then during the Jun-Jul season, and the final one (Sharad) during the Sep-Oct season. Out of the four, the most prevalent ones are Chaitra and Sharad Navratri.

This is the time when we all pray to the Goddess for well-being of one and all by observing fast for the entire Navratri. People who do not observe fast, abstain from alcohol and non-vegetarian food, focusing on sattvik food.
