Today is the start of winter Navratri. Generally people only observe autumn Navratri but there are actually four in a year each of equal importance. Winter Navratri is for the hardcore Devi Bhaktas, it’s a very special time to increase our sadhana and devotion to Maa.

वन्दे वाञ्छितलाभाय चन्द्रार्धकृतशेखराम्।
वृषारूढाम् शूलधरां शैलपुत्री यशस्विनीम्॥१॥

vande vāñchitalābhāya candrārdhakṛtaśekharāṃ| vṛṣārūḍhāṃ śūladharāṃ śailaputrī yaśasvinīm ||

Salutations to the renowned śailaputrī, the daughter of inspiration, fulfiller of goals, holding the crescent moon on Her head, riding a bull and holding a trident.


Islam is NOT equal to hatred!!
