Navratri or Durga Puja celebrates the feminine nature of the divine and honours the prowess of Goddess Durga in defeating Mahishasura, the buffalo demon lord. Navratri is celebrated for nine days with devotional songs, dancing, ceremonies, and festivities, where each day is dedicated to one of the avatars of Goddess Durga, collectively called Navdurga.
On these days, people clean their homes, recite shlokas, pray to each of Goddess Durga’s incarnations, observe fasting, and they hail this significant occasion by listening to bhakti songs. So, this festive season, celebrate the victory of good over evil and honour “shakti” or feminine energy through Navratri songs.
Here are some of the best devotional songs to listen to this Navratri.
