Ghatasthapana: Why Its Marks The Navratri Festival?
Navratri is a nine-day-long festival dedicated to Goddess Durga. It is celebrated four times during the Hindu lunar year. The four Navratris are Chaitra Navratri, Shardiya Navratri and the two Gupt Navratri. The Navratri festival begins with a ritual called Ghatasthapana or Kalash Sthapana. This tradition of setting up a Kalash or Ghat is a way to invite Maa Durga into the house. It is also believed that the Kalash represents auspiciousness, good luck, energy, and power.
