What is Navratri?
“Navratri” is a festival to honor the divine trinity (Durga, Lakshmi and Sarasvati). All three are motherly depictions of feminine energies which symbolize strength, benevolence and wisdom.
1) Durga (sanskrit word for “invincible”): symbolises creation or destroyer of evil.
2) Annapurna or Gruh-lakshmi (Annapurna: benefectaor of whole grains, gruh-Lakshmi : goalkeeper of the home) symbolizes nourishing food & a happy blissful home.
3) Sarasvati (means “having many pools”) symbolizes wisdom, learning, knowledge, music, art & science.
Navratri is derived from two sanskrit words nav=nine + ratri=nights. The above trinity is honored and celebrated for nine evenings and ten days, by dancing to traditional beats and music, followed by eating special food.
