VASANTA NAVARATHRI – Significiance
What is Vasantha Navarathri? Vasantha means “spring” Nava means “Nine” and ratris means “Nights”. Vasantha Navarathri or the nine nights of spring, fall in the Vedic calendar in the month of Chaitra (spring). The Divine Mother or the Adiparashakti (Supreme Power) in one of her immanent forms manifests through the Nature, as flowers blossom and trees turn green in spring. Hence, Spring is the season of rejuvenating of life and natures turns beautiful with all animals coming back from their hibernations, birds chirping and flying happily in the sky, grass turns lush green, all plants and trees blooming with colorful flowers and fruits. As for the Mother Earth, She is the provider of vegetation, shelter and nourishment to everyone. Therefore the Hindu Shastras claim that – The reverence for the earth spares us catastrophes such as earthquakes, floods and tsunamis. The Divine Mother’s transcendent power showers prosperity and joy to all Her devotees who pray perform Pooja which is offer prayer through the rituals such as (1) Abhishekam – the bathing ceremony and (2) Homa – the fire ceremony.
As we all know, time is the key to many things in life. For every event to attain success or run smoothly, grow and thrive well, it is essential that the event must begin at right time for it develop and grow successfully. Nature reflects this example with the onset spring, resulting in the growth and re-growth of all grass, plants, trees, flowering etc. Similarly for all our mental (Manasika), spiritual (Adhyatmika), material (Lokaika) progress, prosperity and success, it is important that we initiate things or events during the Holy, Auspicious time of Vasantha Navarathri. Just like seedlings grow fast, nurture and establish well during the spring with right amount of sunlight, soil and water . Similarly, Birds build nests, lay eggs and take good care of their little ones. Our prayers offered to the Mother Divine with humble devotion and unlimited gratitude, during this auspicious time of Vasantha Navarathri will result in yielding mental peace and good health, financial growth and prosperity, victory over obstacles and success in all events and such many other benefits.
Chant of the Month – Sri Rama Raksha Stotram
