According to some Hindu texts such as the Shakta and Vaishnava Puranas, Navaratri theoretically falls twice or four times a year. Of these, the Sharada Navaratri near autumn equinox (September-October) is the most celebrated, and the Vasanta Navaratri near spring equinox (March-April) is next most significant to the culture of Indian subcontinent. In all cases, Navaratri falls in the brighter half of the Hindu luni-solar months. Navratri or Navratras is mostly associated with nine day fasting. But it's significance goes beyond that. Navratras provide twice a year opportunity to cleanse, purify and retain new energies for the changing weather....all if 'sadhana' is done right. Draining impurities to ready oneself to receive divine blessings.Â The festival is also connected to importance of colours for each of the nine days.
