Today 1st September Begin Ma Shakti's Navratri Festival.This festival starts 1st September and ends last day of Dusshera.(Ravan Dahan).Here is Information about Navratri festival and Durga Pooja Festival Story,Whatsapp Sms,Facebook sms,Greetings and scraps.


About Durga Pooja



The Bengali version of Dussehra, Durga Puja/ Durga Pujo is, as the name suggests, dedicated to the worship of West Bengal's most beloved deity- the Goddess Durga, the embodiment of all feminine virtues representing power and unity. Durga Puja is the time to worship ‘Shakti’ or divine power.
As per the Hindu calendar, Durga Puja is celebrated on the 9th day of the Ashvin month which occurs in the autumn months around September/ October. The Bengalis schedule the festivities according to the ‘Titthi’ i.e. time calculated on the basis of the movement of the moon. ‘Mahalaya’ falls on the new moon which marks the beginning of the ‘Devi Paksha’ and the count-down for the Durga Puja. The puja is conducted for four days which begins on ‘Mahashashthi’ i.e. the sixth day of the full moon and ends on ‘Dashmi’ - the tenth day.


Durga Puja Celebrations



In all neighbourhoods, gorgeously decorated idols of the goddess are created- often in the form of large tableaux which depict her in the act of destroying the demon Mahishasura. Installed in specially erected pavilions known as 'pandals', the idols attract huge crowds who come to admire the tableaux and their decorations.

Stalls selling a variety of foods and other wares, including household appliances, clothing and the like, come up around pandals, and that, combined with the loud music played at each pandal, makes this a very noisy (but enjoyable!) period. The festivities reach fever pitch by the ninth day, following which, on the day of Vijayadashami, the idols of the goddess are ritually immersed in a river or sea. The immersion (known as visarjan') symbolises the return of Durga to her husband after her ten-day sojourn in her parent's home.


Durga Pooja Navratri Story


There lived a Brahman with his daughter, Sumati, in a town. He was a great devotee of Goddess Durga whom he used to worship and perform Havan daily. Her daughter also used to participate in the worship but once she was busy in playing and did not participated. This made the Braman angry and in that rage he said that he will marry her from any poor and paralysed man.

This made the daughter upset but she accepted it cheerfully. The father married Sumati, as said, to a poor man suffering from leprosy. Sumati married and went away with her husband. Her husband did not even had a house of his own, due to which, Sumati had to spend her night in a forest, sleeping on grass.

Looking at the pathetic condition of Sumati, Mata Bhagwati appeared from her virtuous works that she did in her previous birth, and said “I am happy with you and want to give something”. Listening this Sumati asked the reason of her being happy on her. Maa Bhagwati said “I have came due to the virtuous work you did in your previous birth. In your previous birth you were a chaste wife of a Bhil tribesman”.

“Once your Husband stole something and you two were imprisoned by the police. They did not even gave any thing to eat and you two remained hungry for nine days. That period was of Navratri and in a way you observed this fast.”

Maa Bhagwati furthur said “That fast pleased me and brought me here today and I am giving you desirable blessing”. Sumati said “Mother, if you are happy with me then cure the leprosy of my husband.”

Maa Bhagwati immediately fulfilled her wishes and made her husband disease free.

Gandhiji was born on 2nd October 1869, in Porbunder, a small town in Gujarat. He studied law in U.K and practiced law in South Africa.

About Sarvapitru Amavashya or Ashwin Amavashya 



Ashwin Amavashya is known as Sarvapitru Moksha Amavashya and Sarvapitri Darsha Amavashya(No moon day).Most Hindus observe a fast on that day and offer food to their ancestors.On this Amavasyas, Shraadh is done to forefathers by Bhramins whose fathers have died.Usually people perform ritual on the name of their forefathers on a specific tithi on which they died but at times, some of them do not know the specific tithi on which the mortal being of their ancestors left the body, in that case, 'Sarv pitra Amavasya comes to rescue. It is a day dedicated to all the forefathers irrespective of the tithi they died. The souls of our ancestors are bound with their karma they did on earth, and in order to provide them moksha(salvation), one needs to perform the rites and rituals of shraddh. One can also donate food, clothes, money on the name of their loved ones in order to expiate them of their karma.Aswin Amavasya or sarv pitra Amavasya is considered to be the most auspicious and most powerful one for performing funeral rites and tarpan (libation of water).After fasting one can take a dip in the river and later worship Lord Shiva.On this day married women take the holy bath for happy family life and for the long life of their husbands.They also worship the pipal tree.


There is also a popular story that Karna who was a famous character in Mahabharata after death could not get food. He was known for charity and he gave people a lot of gold but not food. When Lord Yama saw his state he advised Karna to go back to earth and feed the poor. Karna got back to earth and fed the poor during the pitri paksha. This enabled him to get food in his life after death. This is exactly why many people even today feed the poor on these days so that their forefathers get peace in their after lives.

Good Morning. Respected School Principals,My dear students and my friends,philosophers and Guide teachers.Today start Navratri festival, so i speak about Navratri festival.Navratri festival that focus on cultural or ethnic topics seek to inform members of their traditions.Navratri, a festival of nine nights celebrated in India is the one amidst those.Navratri, primarily a Hindu festival has been celebrated generally at the end of September or at the onset of October month based upon the Hindu lunar calendar. The Navratri festival represents the devotion to the Goddess Durga. In Sanskrit, the term Navratri, literally denotes nine nights. The Divine Shakti is worshipped throughout these nine nights and the tenth day is celebrated as Vijayadasami added to the festival of nine nights that commemorates the victory of the Divine Shakti over the wicked demons. The Navratri celebrated in this period between September and October is also known as Sharada (Sharad) Navratri or Maha or the Great Navratri, Sharad denoting winter.

Navratri celebration is categorized into three parts, each part consisting of three days, first part for Durga, Goddess for power or Shakti, the second Lakshmi for wealth and prosperity and the final for Saraswathi, Maatha for knowledge and wisdom with the tenth day completed as a day of Vijayadasami. Throughout the nine days of Navratri, devotees observe fasting depending upon their customs and region with one-time meal alone and the rest of the day not taking anything other than the morning meal. They also offer Bajans or stotrams or prayers for prosperous and healthy living. In addition, Navratri, other than being a time opted for spiritual introspection and purgation is believed to be auspicious for commencing new ventures on the tenth day or Vijayadasami day. In Maharashtra and in some North Indian states, during Navratri on the first day, a pot called ghata sthapana or Kalasa sthapana has been set up in a holy place at home with a lamp lit up inside the pot for nine days. This represents the universe or earth and the lamp that has been lighted up continuously as medium for devoting the Goddess Shakti or Shree Durgadevi.

Navratri Festival Speech for Students

Here is Information about Navratri Festival Speech for Students.



Good Morning My School Principal Sir ,teachers and my Classmate and  dear students.My name is.....Today starting Navratri festival.I give a speech about this festival.Navratri is a popular Hindu festival dedicated to Goddess Durga.Navratri festival is celebrated in the month of October/ November. The festival is celebrated twice a year, dates of which are determined according to the lunar calendar. During Navratri, people from villages and cities gather to perform ‘puja’ on small shrines representing different aspects of Goddess Durga, including Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati. 

The festival is celebrated all over the country but with different names. North Indians celebrate Navratri by worshipping the idols of Goddess Durga. Pre-pubescent girls are worshipped as a symbolic representation of the deity. They are offered delicious food items and gifts. In Bengal, decorative ‘pandals’ are made and people visit these ceremonial pandals to worship Goddess in festive mood. In Gujarat, the nine nights of the navratri are celebrated with traditional local touch which has now become global. A traditional dance form ‘garba’ is done throughout the nine nights of celebration. Similar, festivals are celebrated in south India also.Navratri festival is celebrated during the time of year which depicts the transition in the solar and climatic influence. The navratri festival is celebrated to mark the expression of Goddess Durga in the form of Shakti (energy).

Navratri is more of a community event in Gujarat, where people perform devotional songs and dances that are popular by the names of 'DandiyaRaas' and 'GarbaRaas', and observe Jaagran (waking through the night), to please the Goddess. Navratri is celebrated throughout Gujarat in three ways: at Mataji's temples, in individual households and at public places in every city, town and villages by thousands of people - men, women and children - through drumbeats, dance and dandy (wooden lacquered sticks). While ritualistic aspect predominates the first two modes of celebration, social and cultural aspects are visible vibrantly in the last. The Amba Mata Temple at Junagarh, Gujarat, is a favorite pilgrim for devotees, during Navratri. Here, the Garbo, which is a perforated earthen pot with a lighted lamp within, is placed around which brightly dressed women, men and children move singing and playing a folk dance called garba. This earthen pot is a symbol of the human body and the lighten lamp inside signifies the divine soul Moving around a circle in a Garba indicates the never ending cycle of creation, maintenance and destruction phases of the supreme reality.
 

Thank you ....
