Navratri is a major Hindu festival that is celebrated all over the world. This is also one of the oldest events, stretching back to unimaginable ages. Navratri comes from two Sanskrit words: Nava, which means nine, and ratri, which means night.
When we think of women, we think of their great strength and power, and Navratri is a festival of Goddess Durga in nine different forms, each representing a different nature and force.
The Navratri tale tells of an epic battle between the strong demon Mahishasura and Goddess Durga. Lord Brahma granted Mahishasura immortality because a woman could only conquer the strong Mahishasura. Mahishasura assaulted the Trilok—earth, heaven, and hell—with the benefit of immortality and confidence. Even the Gods couldn’t overcome him since a woman could only defeat him. The Gods pleaded to Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Shiva for assistance in defeating their greatest foe.
Seeing the helpless Gods, Lord Vishu decided to construct a woman to defeat Mahishasura because only a woman can battle the demon according to Brahma’s blessing. Lord Shiva, frequently referred to as the god of destruction, is now the most powerful god on the planet. As a result, everyone came to him for assistance. Then Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma combined their energies in the lady made by Lord Vishnu to destroy Mahishasura. Goddess Durga is considered to be a reincarnation of Goddess ParvatiShiva’sShiva’s wife. Shakti, a goddess of power who runs through the universe, is another avatar of Goddess Parvati.
Goddess Durga fought Mahishasura for 15 days after the three great Gods—Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh (Shiva)—created her. The Trilok—earth, heaven, and hell—were all shaken by the battle. Throughout the battle, Mahishasura changed his appearance to deceive his opponent, Goddess Durga. When the demon assumed the appearance of a buffalo, the Goddess Durga used her “Trishul (a forked sword) to puncture his chest, instantly killing him.
