Shardiya Navratri 2021

In India, there are numerous festivals, each with a rich historical basis. One of the most anticipated and an important Hindu festival is Navratri. A nine-day long Hindu festival.  Navratri means 'nine special nights,' and nine forms of Shakti / Devi are worshipped during these nine nights and ten days. The word 'night' is also a symbol of achievement. Dussehra is observed on the eleventh day. The Hindu festival of Navratri occurs four times a year. From Pratipada to the ninth, Pausha, Chaitra, Ashadh, and Ashwin are celebrated.

 

The story behind Shardiya Navratri

Brahmaji urged Shri Ram to worship Chandi Devi for killing Ravana and making Goddess pleased during the Lanka war, and according to the law, 108 rare beans were set aside for Chandi Poojan and Havan. Ravan, on the other hand, began Chandi pooja in order to attain immortality.

Through Pawan Dev, Indra Dev informed Shri Ram of this and advised that Chandi Lesson be given in its entirety. Ravan used his enigmatic powers to steal rare kamal-nayan from the seat of worship, interrupting Lord Rama's pooja and causing the Goddess to become enraged.

When Shri Ram realised that obtaining rare Nilkamal was difficult, he remembered that he was also known as Kamal-Nayan Nawkavang Lochan. So why not devote one eye to the mother's worship? And just as Lord Rama was going to remove one eye, Goddess arrived and stopped him. 

During Ravana's worship, Hanuman Ji disguised as a Brahmin child joined Ravan in the ritual. Jaya Devi, Bharati Harinani, a verse from the Brahmins doing Puja, Harini indicates the devotee's suffering, and Karani means agony and suffering. Durga grew enraged and cursed Ravana as a result of this. Ravana, on the other hand, was defeated.

 

The second story behind Navratri

Mahishasur, a devil, once was killed by Goddess Durga. Previously gods were so pleased with Mahishasur's worship that they bestowed upon him the gift of invincibility. Consequently Mahishasur started abusing his authority and committing endless sins and torture, God summoned Goddess Durga, who slew Mahishasura and was called as Mata Durga Mahishasurmardini.

 

 How to do Shardiya Navaratri Puja

The nine days are divided into three groups of three days, each dedicated to one of the Goddess's three qualities.

2021 Shardiya Navratri Pooja Process and Shubh Muhurat of Kalash Setting up

Festival of Navratri 2021 will begin on October 7th, 2021 and ends on October 15th, 2021. Goddess Durga is worshipped for nine days. Mother Durga's Navratri Pooja removes all difficulties. This year's Navratri is eight days rather than nine.

On October 7th, 2021, from 06:24 am to 07:15 am, is the auspicious period for Kalash installation (curtailment). During this period, it would be better to make an imposition. Vasant Navratri has a number of auspicious occasions. Hindu New Year begins on the 1st day of Navratri. This day, as well as cumulative total, is becoming Sunday. The king of the year is the lord of the day on this day, hence the sun is the king this year.

The provision of Ganesha worship is stated before any other worship in Hindu scriptures. The Kalash is thought to be the antithesis of Lord Shiva, according to a belief about the urn in the worship of the mother. As a result, the Kalash is first adored. The worship space should be cleaned with Ganges water before erecting the Kalash. All of the Gods are welcome to come and worship.

Kalash is ornamented with five different types of leaves and is made of lentils, betel nut, turmeric, and rice. This urn is made by constructing a sand altar beneath it. This method of seeding barley is dedicated to Annapurna Devi. Those who donate funds and  the mother should be made with roli, rice, vermilion,  flower, garland,  sari, chunari, jewellery and Suhag in the midst of the Mother Durga statue.

Simultaneously, Mother should enjoy fruits and sweets in the morning and milk at night, as well as the pleasures of halva purna throughout the day. The text of the 'Durga Saptashati' or 'Durga Chalisa' begins on this day. During the time of worship, the uninterrupted lamp is lit, and it should be lit until the end of the fast.

The nine-day fast begins after the urn is placed, Ganesh Ji's Aarti is performed, and mother Durga's Aarti is performed. The Shailpurutri incarnation of Mother Durga is worshipped on the day of the Kalash's establishment, the first goddess of Navratri. On this day and in the evening, all devotees fast; Durga begins her vow by chanting and reciting the mother's devotion.

Well, good time begins at the beginning of Navratri, therefore if a person does not construct an urn at an inauspicious time, he can do it at any time during the day, and there isn’t any harm in doing that. In house, Navratri Pujana brings happiness and prosperity.
