Navratri - today is the 6th day of the Festival of nine nights of dancing and it's ever the happy celebrations beginning tomorrow. Faith rules and people are merry dancing for nine nights followed by tenth as Dussera and later up to Full moon.
Osho said “Every emotion arising in you is a great opportunity. Master the mind. It is a state of consciousness when the outer world is reflected in . Mind is nothing but the process of thinking, the traffic of thought” Thoughts rule the world and it is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.
Thus, goes the meaning of Navratri - overcome the obstacles that finds roots in life and know the divine self. Greed, temptation, gossip, bickering, self centeredness and any evil disguises are to be overcome otherwise it is the end like Mahishasura, the demon. The goddess reflects the noble intentions and kind deeds, determination to end exploitation and stand by the righteousness. Find here on 'Why Navratri' - Enjoy!
