Importance of NavRatre Pujan : NavRatri is an important nine-day Hindu festival that signifies the victory of good over evil. It is believed that worshipping Goddess Durga during NavRatre helps get salvation. For Hindu devotees, Sharad NavRatri is the time when they pray the Goddess Durga Mata in 9 forms of Shakti for abundance, protection, happiness and victory in all walks of life.
There are four seasonal NavRatri that fall every year, however, only two of them i.e., Sharad NavRatri and Chaitra NavRatri are considered significant. Chaitra NavRatri is also known as Vasant NavRatri as it falls during the spring season and during the month of March or April, while the Sharad NavRatri is celebrated during autumn. Both Chaitra NavRatri and Sharad NavRatri have great religious traditions and significance attached to it.
According to the Hindu Calendar, Sharad NavRatri starts on the first day of the bright lunar half of Ashwin month of Hindu calendar. Sharad NavRatri is observed during the Shukla Paksha or Full Moon phase in the month of Ashwin. While NavRatri is celebrated with great enthusiasm across the nation, it holds special significance in various states in the country, in Maharashtra, it embarks with festival of Dandia Dance with great enthusiasm, in West Bengal Sharad NavRatri coincides with Durga Puja and in Ram Leela is staged across North India during this festival.
