Sharad Navaratri 2017
This year the Sharad Navratri begins with the New Moon in Hasta Nakshatra. It is the time to work up on our emotions and soul.
Just like Maa Durga slayed the demon Mahishasura ,it's time to kill the demon named EGO which resides in each of us.
We need to stop overthinking and being super critical of ourselves.
As Maa is here , we need not to worry about anything because everything will fall into place.
She is Shakti and Prakriti, without her nothing can exist in this Universe.Even the Gods bow down to her. It is said that Lord Ram prayed to Maa Durga in these nine days in order to defeat Ravan.
From Gauri to Durga, every form of her is beautiful and divine.
So, lets keep all the negative emotions aside and celebrate these nine days with joy and devotion.
