Navaratri Dasara festival

Godess of Navarathri

            The term Devi represents the divine power that has taken the passionate (raajasic) form to suppress the forces of evil and protect the serene (satvic) qualities. When the forces of injustice, immorality, and untruth have grown to monstrous proportions and are indulging in a death-dance, when selfishness and self-interest are rampant, when men have lost all sense of kindness and compassion, the Aathmic principle assumes the form of Sakthi, takes on the passionate (raajasic) quality, and seeks to destroy the evil elements. This is the inner meaning of the Dasara festival.
                 The Mother is the Sarva Sakthi Swaroopani and it is in order to declare to the world this Divine aspect of the Mother, the Navarathi festival is celebrated. In these nine days we adore and worship Durga, Lukshmi and Saraswathi.
                    Durga is Sakthi Swaroopini – the physical , mental and spiritual powers are conferred by her; Lakshmi endows us with all types of Aiswarya (prosperity) . These are Jnana Aiswarya, Prana Aiswarya, Vidya Aiswarya. Saraswathi gives us the power of intellect, the power of discrimination,The power of word.
Our physical mother is truly an embodiment of Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswathi. She confers on us all three types of energy and power. She provides us with all manner of wealth and helps us grow and prosper.
