Navratri Durga Ma

Navratri is the festival of nine (Nav) nights (Ratri) dedicated to Goddess Durga. During these nine days, the Goddess is invoked and worshipped by millions of worshippers and people observe fast and indulge in various festivities. Goddess Durga (Devi) is the Adi shakti and the most prominent Hindu Goddess. She is also fondly called Maa (Mother) as she bestows love and affection on her worshippers like a mother. Navratri festival is celebrated twice a year, once in March-April known as Chaitri Navratri marking the after-autumn harvest or harvesting season and second and more popular one, Sharada Navratri (September-November) followed by Dusshera (the festival of victory of Lord Rama over the Demon king Ravana). The Festival marks the victory of good over evil. The Festival not only is dedicated to Goddess Durga but other deities like Lord Rama, Ganesha, Lord Shiva and Goddess Laksmi and Saraswati are also well-regarded and worshipped.

THE EMERGENCE OF GODDESS DURGA:

As per the legend or Hindu mythology she fought many battles with various demons who were Anti-Gods. They (Mahishasura, Madhu-Kaithab, the evil king Shumbha and Nishumbha) tried to threaten peace and spread Adharma (Evil deeds) by overturning the rule of Indra (the ruler of heaven). The God’s wandered homeless on Earth without any power. They found solace in the Trinity (lord Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma) and prayed them to restore peace and prosperity among heaven and Earth. In their guidance, all the deities concentrated their power on one thing and the power took a shape/form of a woman known as Goddess Durga. They even showered the Goddess with their weapons and various gifts. Goddess Durga chose a lion as her vehicle. Goddess Durga in turn heard the grievances and pain of the Gods and promised them to kill the various demons time and again. She killed the entire army of demons especially the buffalo demon, Mahishasura.

CELEBRATION OF THE NAVRATRI FESTIVAL:

The festival of Navratri is celebrated in all parts of the country (India). In Northern India people conduct special prayers to please the Goddess like Mata Ki Chowki or Jagaran (over-night praying of the Goddess) along with observing fast (absence of grains) during these nine days. They even recite a book called Durga Shapshati, which glorifies the act of the Goddess and how she killed various demons. Even in North- Eastern and Eastern states like West Bengal, it is celebrated with full frill and frolic with beautiful Pandaals (Stage) of the deity being organized. Gujarat state celebrates the festival by offering prayers along with the organization of Dandiya Dance/Garba (Folk Dance done with the help of sticks on devotional songs) and in some parts of the country as Saraswati Puja.

SHREENATH JI TEMPLE- HOLY ABODE OF LORD KRISHNA

My visit to the holy Temple

I recently visited the city of lakes Udaipur, Rajasthan. It is a beautiful place with many lakes (Pichola lake, Fatehsagar), palaces and monuments, great culture and food, and amazing history of its brave heroes especially of the king Maharana Pratap Singh. While I was on its visit, I happen to see a small place called Nathdwara, which was around 50 kilometres’ northeast of Udaipur. The importance and holiness of this place is known throughout India.


Nathdwara houses the idol of Shreenath Ji (the child form of lord Krishna) holding a mountain (Govardhan hill situated near Agra) and hence the temple is called Shreenath Ji temple or Shreenath Ji Haveli. We were scared by the driver that it will be better to go along with a priest for better Darshan (viewing of the temple). After negotiating with a young priest, we started our holy walk to the temple of lord Shreenath ji situated in the narrow lane. There were many shops and hawkers selling idols, Tulsi mala (Rosary) and other souvenirs of Lord Krishna like his vastra (clothes) etc. The young priest told us about the history of the temple that the main idol of Shreenath ji was brought to Mewar, Rajasthan through Agra and Gwalior, during the rule of Aurangzeb, to safeguard the deity from destruction. The chariot carrying the idol of Shreenath Ji got stuck in mud near Sihad village of Mewar while traveling, and so the idol was established in a temple with the consent of then king, Rana of Mewar. Per the legends, the temple was built in the 17th century at the spot chosen by Shreenath ji himself.

We were even told about different timings of the temple opening starting from 5.30 A.M.- 6.10 A.M.(Mangla), 7.15 A.M.- 7.45 A.M.(Shringaar), 9.15 A.M.- 9.30 A.M.(Gwal), 11.15 A.M.- 12.10 P.M.(Rajbhog), 3.45 P.M.-4.00 P.M.(Uthapan), 4.40 P.M.-5 P.M.(Bhog), 5.10P.M.-6.00P.M.(Aarti). We reached there at 11.30 A.M. during Rajbhog timings when Lord Shreenath Ji is decorated with beautiful flowers, offered lunch and preparations are made for his afternoon sleep. As soon as we entered the temple, the atmosphere inside was so electric as people were regularly chanting the names of lord Krishna. After removing the slippers, me and my husband were separated in two different lanes (one for females and other for males). There were security personnel to manage the crowds but still there were a lot many people to offer prayers and seek blessings of God. I too enter the main compound amidst crowd and as soon as I laid my eyes on the deity I felt relaxed and sensed the presence of the supreme. I offered my prayers to Shreenath ji. After the darshan (Sighting) of the main deity we were shown various room like a drawing room, rooms storing betel leaves, sweets, milk and flowers, kitchen and even treasury. We also purchase a kilogram of sweets (Prasadam). With this, our journey to this holy abode came to end. We paid money to the young priest and finally bow our heads towards the temple. I wish that Lord Shreenath ji call me again.
