    Happy Navarathri to all the members of ISC.
    The author has given very good information and I thank him for the same.
    In our house also we perform Navarathri puja on these nine days.This will start from Asveejamasa suddha padyami.And ends on Asveejamasa Suddha Navami. The tenth day is celebrated as Vijayadasami. All these nine days in the morning we worship Devi Durga with different names. Actually, it is told that the first three days are for Parvati, the middle three days are for Lakshmi and the last three days are for Saraswati. We perform puja all the nine days. But many of the school and college going children perform puja on the last three days and they are known as moola puja or Saraswathi puja. These nine days special poojas are being conducted at Kanakadurga temple, Vijayawada.
    Happy Navaratri all once again.

    It is interesting to read the post on Navarathri by Mr. Pattabi Raman and is also informative. In Kerala also 9 days are celebrated as Navarathri. It is generally known as Saraswathi Pooja. In many temples or in common places such as town halls, etc. Music concerts are organized during these evenings.
    On the last two days ashtami and Navami no reading or writing is done. It will start afresh on vijayadasami day as vidyaarambham.

    A very nice thread, depicting the name of all the nine Gods and views of "Maa Durga". This is a needed and important information that will help people more to know about our culture. I thank the author Ramachandran Sir for that. But I just checked and found that it is written in some other language I cannot understand , I could just understand the name of all nine Gods. I will find out more on Google.
    A positive attitude will lead to positive results.

    An excellent and well-researched thread from Mr. Pattabiraman. On the auspicious occasion of Navratri, I pray to Mother Durga to shower her love and affection to all people. I also pray to the Goddess to give us enough power and courage to destroy the demonic forces causing harm to humanity.
    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    Very good information, As we know by worshipping maa nine days, we establish the facts. Truth always wins in all ages. People, who have Godly quality get satisfaction in life. They spend their lives in peace and harmony. People, who have demon's quality suffers a lot. This is the time when we accumulate energy. The nine days worship makes us pure and, it helps us in distinguish between right and wrong. It opens our eyes and we act according to the will of Maa. Maa saves us from all evils. By getting the blessings of Maa we do good works.
    Service to mankind is service to God.
