Navratri Day- 4

Do you know there are five types of navratri festivals? However, the most popular one is the one in the Hindu month of Ashwin, followed by the Chaittra navratri. This is because the beginning of spring and the beginning of autumn is a time of climatic and solar changes and in ancient times they were considered to be a time to worship the Mother Goddess. The dates for the vibrant and energetic festival of Navratri are determined according to the lunar calendar. Goddess Kushmanda, believed to govern and provide energy to the Sun God, is worshiped on the fourth day of Navratri. The mantra chanted on this day is – ‘Ya devi sarvabhutesu mam Kushmanda rupena sansthita, Namastasyai, namastasyai, namastasyai namo nama’.

Cheti Chand

Around the 10th century, a tyrant called Mirkshah was forcibly converting Sindhi Hindus to Islam and killing those who were non-compliant. Their prayers to the River God for salvation were answered by the birth of Saint Jhulelal. Sindhis worship water on this day and it is also considered to be the Sindhi New year. An important ritual is offering the Baharana Sahib to the River God.

Ghattasthapana- The beginning of Chaitra Navaratri

Do you know there are five types of navratri festivals? However, the most popular one is the one in the Hindu month of Ashwin, followed by the Chaittra navratri. This is because the beginning of spring and the beginning of autumn is a time of climatic and solar changes and in ancient times they were considered to be a time to worship the Mother Goddess. The dates for the vibrant and energetic festival of Navratri are determined according to the lunar calendar. Ghatasthapana, an invocation to Goddess Shakti, marks the beginning of the nine-day festival and needs to be conducted during a stipulated time frame. The mantra chanted on this day is ‘Sarva mangala mangalye shive sarvaartha saadhike sharanye trayambake Gauri, Narayani namosthute’.

Do you know Lord Vishnu has a sense of humor?

Lord Brahma’s mischief monger son, Sage Narada, was desirous of marrying Shrimati, the beautiful daughter of King Sheelanidhi. However, he recognized she was an incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi and none other than Lord Vishnu would be worthy of her. He prayed to Lord Vishnu and requested a boon wherein he would look like Hari, another name for Vishnu. Lord Vishnu granted his wish. At her swayamvara, Shrimati walked right past Narada, who desperately tried to capture her attention much to the amusement of everyone present. Eventually Lord Vishnu arrived and Shrimati chose him as her husband. Narada realized he looked like a monkey and upset, he confronted Vishnu about the deception. With a straight face, Lord Vishnu explained that Hari also means monkey so in reality, Narada was not duped at all. This shows how Lord Vishnu not only has a sense of humor, but also manages to ensure the order of things are not disturbed. Eventually Narada realized the whole episode was actually an illusion or Maya meant to teach him humility.

Do you know the real reason behind Krishna’s death?

Lord Krishna was resting when Jara, a hunter, mistook his feet to be those of a deer and shot him. Krishna was aware his death was a result of his karma. Jara was the reincarnation of Bali, the monkey he had killed in his previous avatar as Rama. His death at Jara’s hands meant the debt was settled between them. There is another story about why his feet were so vulnerable. Krishna had once refused to apply kheer on his feet at the behest of Sage Durvasa who cursed him with weak, unprotected feet. Gandhari, the mother of the Kauravas, had also cursed him for not saving his sons, declaring his entire race would be wiped out and he would die an ordinary death.
