INDIA FESTIVAL NAVARATRI
Historical Significance of Navaratri
Accordng to the legend, it is said that Shiva gave permission to Durga to see
her mother for nine days in the year and this festival also remembers this
visit. Families make an attempt to return home on these days, and leave on the
tenth. The festival is dedicated to Durga, the mother goddess who also
represents power. Durga annihilated the demon Mahishasura after a relentless
battle lasting nine days and nights. During Navaratri, we invoke the energy
aspect of God in the form of the universal mother, commonly referred to as "Durga,"
which literally means the remover of miseries of life. Goddess Durga is also
referred to as "Shakti" (energy or power). It is this energy, which helps God
to proceed with the work of creation, preservation and destruction. In other
words,it can be inferred that God is motionless, absolutely changeless, and
the Divine Mother Durga, does everything. Truly speaking, our worship of
Shakti re-confirms the scientific theory that energy is imperishable. It
cannot be created or destroyed. It is always there.
