Importance of Nine Colours of Navratri 2021

Navratri (Nine Nights) is a Hindu Festival. This Festival is celebrated across India, with different name & different rituals. Navratri spans across 9 Nights and 10 Days during the month of Ashvin, or Ashvina as Marathi Calendar (in the Gregorian calendar, usually September–October). It often ends with the Dussehra (also called Vijayadashami) celebration on the 10th day. In some parts of India, Dussehra is considered a focal point of the festival, making it effectively span 10 days instead of 9. Navratri is celebrated differently in India’s various regions. Dances performed include Garba, especially in Gujarat. Typically the festival’s nine nights are dedicated to different aspects of the divine feminine principle, or shakti. While the pattern varies somewhat by region, generally the first third of the festival focuses on aspects of the goddess Durga, the second third on the goddess Lakshmi, and the final third on the goddess Sarasvati. Offerings are often made to the goddesses and their various aspects, and rituals are performed in their honour.

Whether throughout the festival or as the 10th day, Dussehra is a time to celebrate the triumphs of good over evil, such as Durga’s victory over Mahishasura. In some parts of India, Dussehra is associated with the victory of the god Rama over the demon-king Ravana. In North India the Ram Lila (“Play of Rama”) is the highlight of the festival. It celebrates the Goddess's victory over evil. Each day of the festival stands for an auspicious colour, which is dedicated to all the avatars of the Goddess. You can make the festive days more special by wearing the corresponding colour.
