History Of Sharadiya Navratri
The most well-known Sharadiya Navratri mythology is on Goddess Durga slaying the monster Mahishasura. Mahishasura was endowed with immortality, and the only person who can kill him is a woman.
The Trilok—Heaven, Hell, and the Earth—were attacked by Mahishasura. Even the Gods had no chance against him; only a woman could defeat him. To ward off Mahishasura, the Gods prayed with Tridev (Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma).
The goddess Durga, who was the manifestation of the goddess Parvati, was selected to put an end to Mahishasura.
Because of this, Navaratri is celebrated over nine days and Goddess Durga’s nine various avatars are revered as the goddess of courage.
