The festive time of Navratri is here once again and people are all geared to surrender themselves to the devotion of Goddess Durga. Marking the victory of good over evil, the festival is celebrated across the length and breadth of India with a lot of enthusiasm. From Punjab, Haryana & Delhi to UP, Bihar and West Bengal, every region has its own Navratri festive flavor!
Believed to bring prosperity, health and wisdom in the lives of the devotees, Navratri, is observed for nine nights wherein every night a different avatar of Goddess Durga is worshipped. The auspicious festival is associated with some beautiful rituals, traditions and customs that bind our country together.
Fasting is an important aspect of Navratri festival and a way of showing devotion to the divine. However, cutting down on the routine diet is challenging. Light snacks and munching tidbits like falahari namkeen, falhaari chivda, saboodana snacks etc. along with the main course keep the spirits high.
Significance of Navratri
Navratri symbolizes the nine long days that Goddess Durga fought the battle with demon king ‘Mahishasura’, eventually killing him. The nine nights are dedicated to different forms of the divine feminine principle or the shakti.
Navratri is also special as it sets the beginning of the festival season in India. It is followed by Dussehra, Diwali and Bhai Dooj, the most revered and celebrated festivals of India.
Navratri in true sense is the time to rejuvenate body and mind. Fasting, meditation and other spiritual practices help to shed off the year-long tiredness and restore mental peace. Sattvic diet and regular meditation is believed to have a great detox impact on body & mind.
