History of Navratri

The concept of Navratri has a rich history, which dates back to around 600 B.C. in South Asia. It is considered a Navratri festival because of its occurrence on the nine nights when the moon is full. On the ninth night of Navratri, the Navratri ceremonies begin. The moon is kept in crescent shape by casting it towards the sky for nine nights, thus making the ninth night a “moonless” night.

The king of Magadh (Maharat) first introduced the concept of Navratri in India. In the story narrating King Veeraballa’s visit to the premises of his daughter in Ujjain, it is mentioned that on the ninth night of Navaratri, the entire palace erupted into a riot of dancing and celebration. Also, the kingdom came under a spell of joy and delight on this same night. Navratri celebrations mark a major Hindu festival in most parts of India.

Navratri is celebrated twice, once on the full moon of Navratri and once on Bhaidooj. The moon’s energy is said to flow through the earth and strengthen the bond between the world and the skies. Navratri should be celebrated twice, as the moon’s energy is said to be transferred twice between the two nights. Navratri falls on the fifth day of the Indian lunar calendar, thus making it a very appropriate time for celebrations, and it is precisely because of this that Navratri has been given the name of the fifth solar day.
