This year navratri / durgapooja – nine nights devoted to worship of the eternal mother was celebrated from 16th Oct leading up to Vijai Dashmi / Dusshehra (victory of good over evil) on 25th of this month.
I share some of the visuals here and am sure they would be quite exotic for those not familiar with India.
Yaa Devi Sarva Bhooteshu Shanti Roopena Samsthita
Namastasyai Namastasyai Namastasyai Namo Namaha
Translation – Salutations again and again to the Devi (Goddess) who resides in all beings in the form of peace and forgiveness.
