Navratri
(“Nav” meaning nine and “Ratri” meaning nights) the festival of nights, lasts for 9 days with three days each devoted to worship of Ma Durga, the Goddess of Valor, Ma Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth and Ma Saraswati, the Goddess of Knowledge. During the nine days of Navratari, feasting and fasting take precedence over all normal daily activities amongst the Hindus. Evenings give rise to the religious dances in order to worhip Goddess Durga Maa.

1st – 3rd day of Navratri
On the first day of the Navaratras, a small bed of mud is prepared in the puja room of the house and barley seeds are sown on it. On the tenth day, the shoots are about 3 – 5 inches in length. After the puja, these seedlings are pulled out and given to devotees as a blessing from god. These initial days are dedicated to Durga Maa, the Goddess of power and energy. Her various manifestations, Kumari, Parvati and Kali are all worshipped during these days. They represent the three different classes of womanhood that include the child, the young girl and the mature woman.

4th – 6th day of Navratri
During these days, Lakshmi Maa, the Goddess of peace and prosperity is worshipped. On the fifth day which is known as Lalita Panchami, it is traditional, to gather and display all literature available in the house, light a lamp or ‘diya’ to invoke Saraswati Maa, the Goddess of knowledge and art.

7th – 8th day of Navratri
These final days belong to Saraswati Maa who is worshipped to acquire the spiritual knowledge. This in turn will free us from all earthly bondage.

  1. I operate a vape shop directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that likewise offers CBD goods. A Calendar month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop submission site. We do not retail CBD items such as CBD oil. We only offer marketing and advertising services to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Merchant and if you take a close peek, you will see that they offer for sale a fairly extensive series of CBD products, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment method. It emerges that PayPal is administering contradictory standards to different firms. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restrained my payment possibilities and now, I am seriously reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken with a barrister from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is undertaking is completely unlawful and discriminatory as it should be applying a consistent criterion to all firms. I am still to speak to one more legal representative from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
