Those who are known by various names like Adishakti, Parashakti, Mahamaya, Kali, Tripurasundari etc. Where there is no movement, only the process of creation stops. Despite this, under the Ashtadisha a kind of power is employed for the origin, maintenance and promotion of the world. This is called Adyashakti. Origin-position-rhythm This is the property of strength. Power originates as vibrations. The cycle of origin-position-rhythm continues continuously.

According to Shri Durgasaptashati, there are three main forms of Shri Durga Devi:

  1. Mahasaraswati, who symbolizes the ‘motion’ element.
  2. Mahalakshmi, which symbolizes ‘dik’, meaning ‘direction’.
  3. Mahakali who symbolizes ‘Kaal’ Tattva.

Jagadodharini Maa Shaktiki, who follows the world, is worshiped twice a year in Hinduism, especially in the form of Navratri.

Sharadiya Navratri: This festival is celebrated from Ashwin Shukla Pratipada to Ashwin Shukla Navami.

What is ‘Navratri’?

The new means, the elements in the form of the primordial power already present in the universe, doing divine work. From the point of view of the gross world, the meaning of night is, the lack of direct radiant light and from the point of view of the universe, the meaning of night is the period of non-functioning of the original masculinity projecting the divine light in the entire universe. The period in which the amount of Shiva and Tattva in the universe decreases and the working form of Shiva Tattva means that the amount of power and its work is more, that period is called ‘Navratri’. Love and pervasiveness, feeling of motherhood and euphoria, Jagadodharini, who shows the highest level of these qualities, is worshiped in the form of fasting, fasting, and celebrating this power that follows the world.

Spiritual significance of Navratri

Whenever the Tamasi, demoniac and cruel people prevail in the world, deceit sattvic, benevolent and devout gentlemen, then the Goddess re-incarnates for the establishment of Dharma. It is a fast for his sake.

In Navaratri, the devatattva is employed 1000 times more than on other days. To get the maximum benefit of the Goddess, one should chant ‘Sri Durgadevaiya Namah’ at the time of Navratri.

Each day during the nine days of Navratri, the new form of Adishakti in increasing order, annihilates the total armament of the painful waves coming from the Saptapatal to the Earth. During the nine days of Navaratri, there is a battle between the painful waves projected by negative forces in the universe and the fiery waves of Adishakti. At this time the atmosphere of the universe is heated. The fiery glow of the sharpness of Shri Durgadevi’s weapons attacks the subtle negative forces with extreme force. The Nirguna Taraka element of the Goddess works throughout the year i.e. from the ninth day of this Navratri to the first day of the next year’s Navratri. In many families, Navratri is observed as fasting. This fast starts with Ashwin’s Shukla Pratipada.
