First night of Navratri (Nine Nights). Navratri is celebrated every year in Hindu Goddess tradition. Each night is dedicated in performing practices and worships to awaken specific Goddess within.
First night is the night of Goddess Shailaputri. ‘Shail’ means mountain and ‘Putri’ means daughter. Mountain is symbolic of ‘Stillness’ and her daughter is ‘Peace’. Today is the night to awaken peace in our hearts by experiencing Stillness within.
