Navratri meaning ‘nine nights’ commences from the first day of the bright fortnight of the lunar month of Ashwin, which is celebrated then for 9 nights. The word ‘Nav’ means ‘nine’ and ‘ratri’ means ‘night’ and the Navratri festival is celebrated every year according to the Hindu & Navratri Calendar. Navratri 2015 festival started from October 13th – October 21st .

Although, there are many legends attached with Navratri, almost all of them are related to Goddess Shakti and her various forms.

Legend of Navratri

The great legend of Navaratri dates back to the story of the mighty demon Mahishasura, who worshipped Lord Shiva and attained invincible powers. But instead of using these powers for the benefit of humanity, he started killing innocent lives on earth and set out to win the seven lokas. No one was able to save the living creatures from his tyranny and soon he acquired the swargloka.

Therefore, all the Gods, including the Hindu Trinities, Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva united their supreme powers and created a divine being called Ma Shakti or Durga.

Goddess Durga, the Warrior Goddess, with all the accumulated power and weapons given by the Gods, fought with Mahishasura which went on for 9 days and finally on the tenth day, Goddess Durgakilled the demon Mahishasura, thus lifting the tyranny of the demon off the innocent lives on earth.

Offer Your Prayers to Goddess Durga on Navaratri 2015.
