Chaitra Navratri April 2024 Ghatasthapana time date auspicious time worship method

Chaitra Navratri 2024: Chaitra Navratri, lasting from April 9 to April 17, is nine auspicious days dedicated to honor Goddess Durga. The festival begins on 9 April with ‘Ghatasthapana’ at 11:50 pm, ending on 17 April, lasting 4 hours and 14 minutes. Here’s everything you need to know:

During the nine-day festival, people pray to the nine incarnations of Goddess Shakti, and on the last day, celebrate Rama Navami – celebrating the birth of Lord Rama.

According to traditional beliefs, the vehicle of Goddess Durga holds significance, indicating auspicious or inauspicious outcomes. This year during Chaitra Navratri, the goddess comes riding on a horse, which is not considered an auspicious vehicle. This symbolism suggests upcoming battles and natural disasters, indicating a change in power.

According to the Hindu calendar, the auspicious time for Kalash Sthapana will fall between 11:57 am to 12:48 pm on April 9, which will last for 51 minutes.
