Navratri 2022 History

Hindus celebrate the goddess Durga’s win over the demon Mahishasura during Navratri. Because of his devotion to him, a more powerful God, Lord Brahma, had granted Mahishasura the gift of immortality, which meant he would never die. However, there was one condition involved to this gift: only a woman would be capable of defeating Mahishasura. Mahishasura was pleased with the bargain since he didn’t believe any woman could kill him. He misjudged the power of women. Mahishasura and his soldiers grew into a powerful force attacking humans on Earth throughout time, and no gods were able to stop him. Finally, the three most powerful Hindu gods, Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Shiva, agreed to join forces and create the goddess Durga, a mighty woman whose aim would be to defeat Mahishasura. Before going into combat with Mahishasura, the gods bestowed several weapons upon the new goddess Durga. Durga fought the demon for ten days, and it was a difficult battle since the monster kept changing his appearance to confuse the goddess. But finally she was able to kill him when transformed into a buffalo.

Navratri 2022 Significance

We live in a fast-paced world where there is little time for oneself. The nine days of Navratri are said to dissolve a year’s worth of exhaustion and restore mental calm. If one is careful to eat a sattvic diet and meditate consistently, a complete body-mind detox may be accomplished in as little as nine days.
