Goddess Laxmi is the symbol of prosperity, the Shakti who brings prosperity. During the next three days, Goddess Durga is worshiped in her prosperity-bestowing form. During the first three days, we remove our negative attitude; hence, in the next three days, positive attitude replaces the negative attitude. With a positive and optimistic attitude, devotees pray for removing obstacles and bringing success in their path.
Navaratri is the festival of the Goddess. Thus, females have always been at the top in mythology. Even during Navaratri, on the eighth day, Kanya Pooja is performed, where nine young girls are considered to be the nine forms of goddess Durga. They are worshiped like goddesses. Devotees wash their feet, offer them new clothes and other gifts. This ritual has been performed in India since ancient times to mark the importance of females.
Navaratri is dedicated to Goddess Durga. Goddess Durga is believed to be
the combination of trinity of goddesses Laxmi, Parvati, Saraswati. In other
words, the Trinity is worshiped during Navaratri. Three days are assigned to
each goddess during the nine divine days of Navaratri. Here are nine lessons
from the nine nights of festivities.
