Navaratri the 9 divine
nights of blessings
is the worship of the three divine goddesses, Saraswati (Goddess of learning and
speech), Lakshmi (Goddess of wealth and prosperity), and Durga (Goddess of
strength and courage). It is also said to be the battle that occurred between
Goddess Chaamundeshwari and the asura (demon), Mahishaasura. The battle lasted 9
days and 9 nights. Finally, on the tenth day, Goddess Chaamundeshwari killed
Mahishaasura. This day is known as Vijayadasami. Vijayadasami means the 10th day
During the Navaratri or the Nine Nights, the whole of India
adores the Mother and wor¬ships Her with great devotion. On the first three
nights, Durga or the Destructive Aspect of the Mother is worshipped. On the
succeeding three nights, it is the Creative Aspect or Lakshmi that is adored.
And, on the last three nights, the knowledge aspect, or Sarasvati is invoked.
The tenth is the Vijaya Dasami Day or the Day of Victory. There is a special
significance in this arrangement. When the Devi is worshipped by a devotee, She
first destroys the evil propensities that lurk in his mind; then She implants
therein, the Daivi Sampat or the divine qualities conducive to spiritual
unfoldment; then She bestows true knowledge on him; lastly the aspirant attains
liberation or victory over Samsara.
Navaratri is the most suitable
occasion in the year to perform intense Sadhana. These nine days are most
sacred. Just imagine the tremendous wave of spiritual vibration, which should
sweep the land when millions of people, all over the world repeat the names of
the Mother and sing Her glories! All the Devas are ever present in their subtle
forms, where the names of Mother are uttered. They would bless you and help you
on. You will receive valuable assistance from unknown sources, from the Rishis
and Siddhas, if you do intense Sadhana during these nine days.

Devi Sarvabhooteshyu Matru Roopena Samsthtitha Namastasyai Namastasyai
O Divine Devi who dwells in the hearts of
all beings as Mother I salute Thee.
A child is more familiar with the
mother than the father, because she is very kind, loving, tender, affectionate
and looks after the wants of the child. In the spiritual field also the aspirant
or the devotee—the spiritual child—has intimate relationship with Mother Durga
than with Father Siva. It behoves, therefore, that the aspirant should approach
the Mother first and that She will introduce Her spiritual child to the Father
for his illumination or Self-realisation.
Mother’s grace is boundless.
Her mercy is illimitable. Her knowledge is infinite. Her power is immeasurable.
Her glory is ineffable. Her splendour is indescribable. She gives you Bhukti or
material prosperity and Mukti also (liberation).
