Four Navratri Discription:-
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GUPT NAVRATRI AND PARTYAKSH NAVRATRI:-
We get all information and description of all four Navratri’s in the divine book “DEVI BHAGWAT” and other religious books. All four Navratri are so precious to do Puja, Sadhna and accomplishment (Siddhi) of Goddess Durga. The only difference is that Pratyaksh Navratri is done by Household and Gupt Navratri is done by Saints and Taantrik to do Siddhi of Divine powers by Goddess DURGA. Gupt Navratri especially for achievements of ten Mahavidhya by doing Puja, Bhakti and saints achieve magical powers by this period. In ancient times Gupt Navratri are very famous to complete attainment to get supernatural powers of the supreme. As time moves Chaitra Navratri and Sardiye Navratri becomes more famous to achieve materialistic goals in family life. People of India start doing fasting, puja, sadhna, siddhi in these Partyaksh Navratri. The customs and rituals observed during Chaitra Navratri are similar to the ones observed during the Shardiye Navratri. Both have same Ghatasthapna Puja Vidhi.
MEANING OF NAVRATRI AND IMPORTANCE OF NIGHT IN NAVRATRI:-
The entire festival that last for nine days devoted to the worship of Goddess DURGA, the Shakti aspect of the Powerful Supreme. The Vedas consider her to be the controlling agency of this material world of manifestations. Goddess Durga manifests herself in different forms. All the forms are absolutely divine and worshipped. Navratri means nine nights and all are dedicated to worship of MAA Durga. Navratri means “NAV AHORATRO” (Special nights). In this period we symbol of “SIDDHI”. In India our VEDIC RISHI gives more importance to nights for worship in comparison of Day. This is the reason it is a ritual that we celebrated all festivals like Diwali, Holi, Shivratri and Navratri etc. at night. It shows the real importance of Sadhna, Siddhi of divine worship at night. The first three days of Navratri are dedicated to Goddess Durga, the next three to Goddess Laxmi and the last three to Goddess Saraswati worshipped all nine different forms of Goddess Durga by Puja, Archan and Yagye.
