The Festival of Navratri

Nine nights called Navratri in India
are observed to please goddesses nine;
Goddess each an avatar of Durga
has subdued evils, made them fine.

So these nights we try hard to conquer
the evils that make us go astray;
We worship all deities to prosper,
to live lives with joy, to win each fray.

It is believed that goddess Durga
bestows peace and happiness on all;
Numbers thus in her favoured raga
are sung by her devotees each fall.

May the goddess bless you, my fear;
Time you let go of all hatred and fear.
