Happy Sharad Navaratri


The nine-day Hindu festival of Navaratri began on October 15th, 2023.  In the Sharad Navaratri, nine forms of Shakti/Devi are honored.  Each region 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.
