Happy Sharad Navratri

The nine-day Hindu festival of Navaratri begins on September 29th, 2019.  In the Sharad Navaratri, nine forms of Shakti/Devi are honored.  Each region in India celebrates this festival in their own tradition's manner, but in some areas three days each are dedicated to Durga, Lakshmi and Sarasvati. This holiday culminates on the tenth day with the observance of Vijayadashami.
