Navarathri reminds all women, who are the guardians of the family, culture, and integrity, to guide the family towards the path of justice, love, and divinity. Navarathri is celebrated all over
It is also known as “Dhanwantari Triodashi”. Goddess Lakshmi (goddess of wealth and prosperity) is worshipped on this day. “Lakshmi pooja” is performed on this day and an earthen lamp (agal vilakku) is lit to ward off evil spirits. This is celebrated on the day prior to Deepavali.
This is an important festival of Hindus. This is also known as “Naraka Chaturdashi”. This is celebrated as a mark of “Return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya” and “Killing of Narakasura” by Satyabhama (Lord Krishna’s wife). It is the “festival of lights” (Inner Light which removes all obstacles, & dispels darkness, negativity, and ignorance). Even Sikhs, Jains, and Buddhists celebrate Diwali/Deepavali.
