Navaratri Celebrations - Udupi Sri Krishna Alankara


Navaratri is a festival of success dedicated to Goddess Durga and worshiped for 9 days and nights. The Hindu historically story on Navaratri is where goddess Durga destroys an asura (devil) named Mahishasura. It is known that the war took for 9 nights and the 10th day Goddess Durga slained evil to death (Mahisha Mardini) which is celebrated as Vijaya Dashami. 

Whatever be the story, the view of the entire festival is the victory of truth and goodness over the evil.
This Navaratri let us worship Goddess Durga to destroy all the evils residing within the entire mankind and bless with good health and thoughts. This was a brief description on history of Navaratri.

Now coming to the point of celebration, we all know as India is rich in diversities, every aspect is followed differently in every corners of the nation.  In my home town every house and temples perform Durga Pooja with beautiful flower arrangements. Ladies offer bangles, sindhur and flowers to each other and distribute the Naivedhya (food offered to lord).

The wonderful part of this festival in Udupi is, Lord Krishna is dressed and worshiped as goddess Lakshmi(Durga) all nine days. It is so mind blooming to watch Shri Krishna as Shri Lakshmi.
