About Navratri

Navratri starts on Aso Sud Padvo. It lasts for 9 days which are meant for the worship of Shaktimaa (Parvati Devi). Tired from the harassment from Demon Mahishasoor, the Devtas requested Bhrahma, Vishnu and Shivji (Tridevs) to help them. Shaktimaa appeared from the Tridevs anger and fought with the demon continuously for 9 days. The demon was killed which signified the victory of Divine over the Evil and therefore we celebrate these 9 days by singing Mataji’s devotional songs with musical instruments.
