Chaitra Navratri Rituals

Navratri is one of the significant Hindu festivals which is devoted to the Goddess Durga or NavDurga. It is celebrated with much religious fervor among the Hindu community across distinct parts of the country. Chaitra Navratri holds special importance in Hinduism, thus devotees of Goddess Durga, follow a various set of rituals for the nine days of Navratri. They start the rituals by observing a strict fast for nine days, followed by singing devotional songs during these divine nine nights. People visit temples and other religious places and offer prayers to the mother deities to get their utter blessings. Feeding sweetmeats (bhog) to small girls is one of the pious rituals during Navratri (especially in the last three days).

For nine days, worshippers also install different idols of Goddess inside their home temples. Praying and fasting mark the Chaitra Navratri celebrations. Before the start of the celebrations, the house is cleaned to welcome the Goddess in their home. The devotees performing the puja observe a fast for all nine days. While fasting only ‘satvik’ food like potatoes, ‘kuttu ka atta’, curd and fruits are allowed. Consumption of non-vegetarian food and also the use of onion and garlic should be strictly avoided. During the Navratri period, while maintaining strict discipline in food, a person should also monitor their behavior. The devotees spend their day worshipping the Goddess and chanting the Navratri mantras. The fast is broken on the ninth day after the ‘havan’ and the Prasad, after offering to the Goddess, is eaten along with other members of the family.
