Navratri Story 


At the time of Navratri, Durga had killed the demon Mahishasur. Mahishasur had demanded some powers from Lord Rama after worshiping Lord Shiva. Because of these same powers Brahma Vishnu Mahesh himself was not able to kill him.


Mahishasur had kept all the gods intimidated. Therefore all the gods went to Brahma Vishnu Mahesh and wished salvation from Mahishasura. Then all the gods, together with their power, gave birth to a new power which was given the name of Durga. Mata Durga has many names in which power is also a name for them. Mother Durga slaughtered Mahishasur and liberated the deities from the wrath of demons. Since then, worship of Mother Durga is prevalent


Lord Rama, Lakshman, Hanuman and all the Vanar Sena had worshiped Ashwani Shukla from Pratipada to Navami (Shardhiya Navaratri) mother Durga. After this, on the tenth day Lord Rama climbed to Lanka and defeated Ravana and won. Therefore, the festival of Dashera is celebrated on the tenth day which symbolizes the victory of religion on truth and unrighteousness on falsehood. Navaratri is worshiped in nine forms of Adishakti Mata Durga. These forms are also called Navdurga.


Some people in Navaratri also suffer from eating because they have enough rules of eating and have to follow them. In the days of Navaratri, frozen poultry or ghee flour made of flour or pistachio or can be eaten whole and if there is some problem in the middle, then lemon water, dried fruits or coconut water can also be taken.
