Understanding the Significance of Sharad Navratri 2023 

Imagine a Hindu festival celebrating divine feminine energy and bringing people together! Well, that’s what Sharad Navratri 2023 is all about. Maa Durga represents the ultimate Shakti or divine feminine energy in Hindu mythology. During the nine days of Sharad Navratri, people worship Maa Durga’s nine forms, such as Maa Shailputri, Maa Brahmacharini, Maa Chandraghanta, Maa Kushmanda, Maa Skandamata, Maa Katyayani, Maa Kaalratri and Maa Mahagauri. 

But there is one more thing that makes this festival more festival: Maa Durga’s victory over devil Mahishasura. Just like a real warrior, Maa Durga fought with the devil Mahishasura, an expert in shape-shifting for nine days. And got success on the 10th day by killing Mahishasura, blessing the earth with peace, and restoring dharma. This is why we celebrate the tenth day of Sharad Navratri as Vijaydashami.
