Nine Divine Nights Of Navratri Celebration
Navaratri is a festival dedicated to the worship of Hindu deity Shakti. The word Navaratri literally means nine nights in Sanskrit, ‘nava’ meaning nine and ‘ratri’ meaning nights. During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Shakti/Devi are worshiped. The 10th day is commonly referred to as Vijayadashami or “Dussehra.”
Navaratri is divided into sets of three days to adore three different aspects of the supreme goddess or goddesses.
First three days
The goddess is separated as a spiritual force called Durga also known as Kali in order to destroy all our impurities. During these three days neivedyam will have to be spicy, sour like Pulihora, Lemon and Sambar Rice
Second three days
The Mother is adored as a giver of spiritual wealth, Lakshmi, who is considered to have the power of bestowing on her devotees inexhaustible wealth, as she is the goddess of wealth. During these three days, neivedyam like Sakkarai Pongal, Kesari and Payasam is offered.
Final three days
