Celebrating The Divine feminine Energy Of The Cosmos, Navratri

Tara was particularly fond of Navratri and considered it her favourite holiday. She cherished the time spent with her family during Navratri. Her family's customary Navratri celebration provided an excellent reason to be together. Different parts of India have their own traditions for celebrating Navratri. It's a time for religious meditation and fasting for some, but it's also a time for dancing and eating for others.

 One of the most important Hindu holidays is Navratri (the festival of the nine nights). It represents good triumphing over evil. Navratri is a nine-day celebration that takes place at the beginning of October, during harvest season. Durga Puja is another name for the festival. Three separate forms of Shakti (cosmic energy), Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati are worshipped throughout this time as three different manifestations of Shakti.

 Tara's family honored Navratri by performing dances and feasting. During Navratri, people gather in their neighborhoods for dances and feasts throughout the night. Bengal, where enormous goddess statues are adored, offers India's most vibrant and lavish festivities. The nine nights of the festival are usually devoted to various faces of Shakti, the divine feminine power.

 While the schedule varies by area, the first third of the festival is usually devoted to the characteristics of the goddess Durga, the second third to the goddess Lakshmi, and the third to the goddess Saraswati.

 Offerings and ceremonies are frequently done in honour of the goddesses and their different manifestations.

 This Navratri, embrace the feminine cosmic energy's divine flow by celebrating together with friends and family in your own traditional manner.
