Spring

as we pray
Durga *Mata
Lakshmi Mata, Saraswati Mata.

This Indian Festival lasts for nine consecutive days, beginning March 23 – April 1, 2012.

* Mata = Mother. Mother Durga = Energy; Mother Lakshmi = Wealth & Prosperity; Mother Saraswati = Knowledge & Wisdom

*’Nav’ means ‘nine’ and ‘ratri’ means ‘night’. Thus, ‘Navratri’ means ‘nine nights’.It is one of the most celebrated festivals of Hindu calendar, it holds special significance for Gujratis and Bengalis and one can see it in the zeal and fervor of the people with which they indulge in the festive activities of the season. Dandiya and Garba Rass are the highlights of the festival in Gujarat, while farmer sow seeds and thank the Goddess for her blessings and pray for better yield. In older times, Navratri was associated with the fertility of Mother Earth who feed us as her children.
