What is Navaratri?


Navaratri is a festival of worship and dance. It is also spelled as Navaratra or Navratri. The word Navaratri is made of two words: Nava meaning nine and Ratri meaning nights.
Navaratri is divided into three-day sets.  Each devoted to a different aspect of the supreme goddess. The first three days are devoted to Durga in order to destroy all our defects, impurities and vices. The next three day set is devoted to Lakshmi who is the giver of material and spiritual wealth. Ultimately, the last set is devoted to Saraswati i.e the goddess of wisdom.

The only way to have all-round success in life is to attain the blessing from all three aspects of the divine mother
