SIGNAFICANCE OF NAVARATRI
Navaratri is one of the most popular Hindu festivals spanning a period of nine nights. T
his festival is celebrated in the month of Ashwayuja from 1 to 9 (September- October). T
he Goddess in the form of the Universal Mother is commonly worshiped during the nine nights and ten days and hence it is also known by the name of Devi Navaratri. Three aspects of the Divine Mother, namely Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati are worshiped during the nine nights, the tenth day being celebrated as Vijaya Dasami. It is considered auspicious to start new ventures, especially in the field of education, on Vijaya Dasami. Ramayanam is also common during the Navaratri. Special Pujas are scheduled in the temple during the ten days. Devotees are encouraged to participate personally in the Sahasranama Archana daily.
Navratri is divided into sets of three days to adore three different aspects of the supreme goddess or goddesses.
First three days

Final three days
The final set of three days is spent in worshipping the goddess of wisdom, Saraswati. In order to have all-round success in life, believers seek the blessings of all three aspects of the divine femininity, hence the nine nights of worship.
