The fifteen day celebrations are complete with Kojagar Lakshmi Puja on the occasion of Ashvayuj Purnima.
Lalita Panchami during Navaratri
Panchami Thithi of Sharadiya Navaratri is associated with Upanga Lalita Vrat. Many keep a fast on this day, dedicated to Mother Goddess seeking knowledge, wealth and happiness. On this auspicious day Lalitha appeared to defeat the demon Bhandasura created from Kamadeva’s ashes. Also chanted are Stotrams like Lalita Sahasranaamam, Lalita Trishati during Lalita Panchamee.
Saraswati Avahan Puja
Saraswati Puja is celebrated on the day of Moola Nakshatram in the Shukla Paksha during Navaratri seeking her benevolence in enlightening us. If we are unable to perform Kalasha Pooja and Pattada bombe Pooja on Padyami of Navaratri, this is another opportunity to perform these Pujas. Hence, the day of Moola Nakshtra and Saraswati Puja has gained importance.
Durgashtami in Sharannavaratri
Durgashtami is the day on which Kali who appeared from Goddess Durga, annihilated Mahishasur as well as Chanda-Mundas. Durgashtami is also known as Veerashtami or Durgotsav.
Ayudha Puja on Maha Navami
Ayudha Puja is performed on the day with Navami Thithi. This is also known as Maha Navamee. While the Ayudha Puja got the significance, when Prince Arjun offered the Pujas to the weapons they had hidden in the Shimshupa tree, before taking on Kaurava princes who waged a campaign during Pandava Ajjnatavaas.
Navaratri Celebrations culminate on the day of Vijaya Dashami. After the victory against the demons, all the Gods and Goddesses celebrated on Vijaya Dashami. Lord Sriram succeeded in overcoming the demon Ravan on this day. Ramalila is a major celebration in the northern parts of India.
Also the celebration of Sharadiya Navaratri or Dasara can be inseparable from the arrangement of dolls. The arrangement of Dasara dolls has many regional names. Gombe Habba in the old Mysuru region, Golu/Bommai Kolu festival in the Tamil Nadu, Bommala Koluvu in the Telugu speaking region of Andhra-Telangana are some of these.
