Navaratri is a festival of worship and dance. It is also spelled as Navaratra or Navratri. The word Navaratri is composed of two words: Nava meaning nine and Ratri meaning nights. Navaratri is divided into three-days sets, where each is devoted to a different aspect of the supreme goddess. The first three days are devoted to Durga to destroy all of our defects, our impurities and our vices. The next three days are dedicated to Lakshmi who is the donor of material and spiritual wealth while the last set is devoted to Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom.
The only way to be successful throughout one's life is to obtain the blessing of the three aspects of the divine mother.
