Most Auspicious days of the year are back. Shardiya Navratra are starting from Oct 7th’ to 15th ‘2021.
Whole India is worshipping feminine energy in different forms, which is represented by Goddess Maha Shakti.
It is Shakti that the whole creation is there. Actually it is Shakti who is running the whole show, not the Shiva. Shiva is always in Vairagya, always in dhyan. Shakti is a having the whole charge and can get down Shiva also from Kailasha as a grihasthi.
It is believed that the Masculine energy is running the show but in reality It is feminine energy who makes masculine energy do all. She is the Power and deciding factor behind them. These are the special days to show gratitude to the Feminine energy, who comes and plays most important role in our life from our birth.
All the colors, beauty, creation, nurturing, navrasas all are from Shakti. The level of patience, love, surrenderfulness, non stop power and nurturing , what feminine energy is having, it is incomparable.
Shiva needs space for his dhyan always. So if you see men they always need space and me time much more strongly than women.
On the other hand women is always doing something for her family. Always busy nurturing her own people. She never gets tired doing for her family. She expresses beautifuly and house becomes home. Without her house becomes dull. She is the color and happiness of the house. Masculine energy is much more dependent on the feminine energy, then feminine energy on Masculine.
These are the auspicious days to show and express your gratitude to all the women who shaped you, nurtured you, take care of you and make YOU the YOU. Your mom, wife, sister, daughter and all the women on this planet are representing Maha Shakti. Show all your gratitude and respect to them to get their grace always. Their grace can make any life and house paradise. See Goddess in them and bow down in front of them. They are the reason behind you.
It is a myth that there is no difference between Man and Woman. This is not true. They are opposite. They think differently. Even their brains are wired differently. Only when Masculine energy accepts what they are and feminine energy accepts what they are and how they can compliment in each other’s life by standing in their own power, can only get happiness and bliss, not by competing or trying to be like each other. They can understand each other only by first understanding themselves. Recognize and Stand in your Power.
These are the Sidha Muhurta days and you can start any new project during these days.
Shakti puja is always more disciplined. So during these days no Tamas is allowed.
I have given some simple puja rules , you can adopt them if you wish.
- Clean and decorate your temple.
- Maha shakti loves flowers and fragrant smoke. It is believed that She loves Red Hibiscus, Rose and lotus or flowers with strong enchanting fragrance. Guggal smoke is also recommended.
- You can offer lamp, 11 beetle leaves with cloves, cardamom, beetle nut, honey, roli, moli, vermilion, mehendi, bangles, Red veil, saffron, camphor. As a prasad offering pomegranate and dry fruits are considered to be Shakti’s favorite.
- In prayers Durga Saptshati is considered to be Mahapuja but you can do any Shakti prayer where you feel the connection.
- There are lot of people who keep fasts during these days.
These are Vibrant days. Pray, chant, sing and dance during these days. If Silence and dhyan is of Shiva then Mridang and dance meditation is of Shakti.
These days are happy days. Everywhere we see lights and decoration and prayer sounds and incense fragrance come from every house.
Enjoy this time in gratitude to the Feminine energy who plays such important role in this Universe in different forms.
In advance, I wish you and your family Very Happy Shardiya Navratri.
