Navratri 2022: History & Significance

The Sanskrit words "Nava," which means nine, and "Ratri," which denotes night, are combined to produce the phrase "Navaratri." The celebration is thought to symbolize the victory of good over evil in Hinduism. It is said that during this time, the goddess Durga fought the demon Mahishasur for nine days until beheading him on the tenth. As a result, Vijayadashmi is celebrated on the tenth day of Navratri.
