Celebration of the ‘triumph of good over the evil’ begins in the month of post autumn. Itis one of the most significant festivals of the Hindus celebrated all across the world. The word Navratri is derived from two Sanskrit words—Nava' means nine and 'Ratri' means night.
Navratri speaks about the great battle that took place between the powerful demonMahishasura and Goddess Durga. Mahishasura was blessed with immortality by Lord Brahma under one condition that Mahishasura could be defeated only by a woman. Armed with the blessing of immortality and confidence, Mahishasura attacked the Trilok--earth, heaven and hell. Since only a woman could defeat him, even the Gods didn't stand a chance against him. The worried Gods prayed to Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva to help them defeat their worst enemy.
Looking at the helpless Gods, Lord Vishnu took the decision to create a woman to defeat Mahishasura since as per Lord Brahma's boon. Now, Lord Shiva, who is also known as the god of destruction, is the most powerful god. Then, Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma put all their powers together in the woman Lord Vishnu had created to demolish Mahishasura. It is believed that Goddess Durga is a reincarnation of Goddess Parvati, who is the wife of Lord Shiva.‘Shakti’another avatar of Goddess Parvati is the goddess of power that runs through the universe.
Goddess Durga fought with Mahishasura for 15 long days. It was a fight that shook the Trilok—earth, heaven and hell. During the fight, the clever Mahishasura kept changing his form to confuse his opponent Goddess Durga. Ultimately, when the demon took the form of a buffalo, the Goddess Durga pierced his chest with her 'Trishul' (a forked weapon) killing him instantly.
