Recently, some spiritual seekers and researchers asked me about the science and significance of navratri and how this time can be effectively used for the purification of our body and mind.  The main significance of Navratri is celebrating the victory of good over evil and above all embracing the spirit of joy and oneness, and leaving behind all that is limiting and hindering our growth as spiritual being.
