Do You Know?

Navaratri is divided into three-day sets, each devoted to a different aspect of the supreme goddess.

The first three days of Navratri are devoted to Durga (to destroy all our vices, impurities, and defects).

The next three day set is devoted to Lakshmi (the giver of spiritual and material wealth).

The last set of three days is devoted to Saraswati (the goddess of wisdom).
Blessing from all three aspects of the divine mother is the only way to have all-round success in life.
