Happy Durga Navami 2020 (Maha Navami) 2020 Wishes Images, Messages, Photos, and Status: The end of of the nine-day festival of Navratri is observed as Durga Navami which comes one day ahead of Vijaya Dashmi. It is also the third and final day of Durga Puja festivities. The day holds significance as it is a precursor to the defeat of the evil buffalo demon king Mahisasur. To mark her victory, Goddess Durga is worshipped as Mahisasurmardini, which literally translates to demon slayer. Maha Navami is celebrated across India in most states as part of the 10-day Durga Puja festival but assumes prominence in West Bengal Assam, Odisha, Tripura, Jharkhand, and Bihar. The Goddess is worshipped with much enthusiasm. The rituals for Durga Navami start with a holy bath followed by a Shodhasopachar puja (a ritualistic worship of the Goddess).
One of the important things to note is the starting time of Navami Tithi. The precise rule is that if Ashtami and Navami merge before Sanyakal on Ashtami Tithi, then Ashtami Puja and Navami Puja including Sandhi Puja are done on the same day.
Considering this year, amid the pandemic, the festivities might be restricted, here are some special wishes and messages that you can share with your family and friends to celebrate the spirit of the festival.
*May the Goddess give you power and strength to take on life’s battles with ease. Happy Navami!
