Navratri gives us a day-by-day breakdown of each manifestation of the divine feminine power- each of whom removed obstacles and problems. Navaratri does not talk about easy success or a shortcut to it. It signifies the victory that comes only by overcoming obstacles and evils.
We all want to know how we should face and overcome obstacles in our lives. Each one of us has our own way of dealing with obstacles. Some of us may run away from it, others may brave it. Some suffer through pain, and a few may be simply confused and don't know what to do.
The significance of each day is described with a manifested form of the feminine Goddess Durga. Each form is associated with specific attributes symbolising unique powers and characteristics needed for us to overcome obstacles. A description of her beauty and weapons the Goddess carries and the colour she adorns are also given to us.
Durga, in her various forms, engages in battles with many demons. These battles symbolise obstacles that must be fought and the triumph of good over evil for the protection of the universe. It is said that her forms evolve as she takes on different avatars to address different situations and adversaries.
Here are the 9 forms of Durga:
Shailputri, the first form of Navadurga, is associated with the daughter of the Himalayas. She is depicted riding a bull and carrying a trident. The bull represents strength and determination. Worshiping Shailputri is believed to bring strength and courage to devotees.
At Sinhasi, taking inspiration from the daughter of the Himalayas, we believe that the first step in creating financial wellness is the creation of strong foundations. It is important to establish a solid financial foundation for building a stable financial future.
Brahmacharini is the ascetic form of Durga. She is often portrayed holding a Japa Mala (prayer beads) and a Kamandalu (water pot). This form represents penance, self-control, and spirituality. Worshiping Brahmacharini is believed to grant wisdom and inner strength.
Sinhasi believes in investing with purpose. The significance of knowledge and determination in investing, inspired by Brahmacharini’s story, we aim to provide insights into how well-balanced and informed decisions lead to financial success.
Chandraghanta is known for her crescent moon-shaped adornment on her forehead, which gives her the name. She carries various weapons and rides a tiger. Chandraghanta symbolises bravery and fearlessness. Devotees believe that worshiping her brings courage and protection.
Sinhasi imbibes dynamic balance with courage as the path to peace and prosperity in its approach. Drawing inspiration from Chandraghantha’s symbolism, we navigate financial turbulence in the markets by maintaining a balanced mind to overcome financial hurdles and resistance.
Kushmanda is depicted with eight arms and is often associated with the Sun. She is believed to have created the universe with her smile. Worshipping Kushmanda is thought to bring energy, vitality, and good health to devotees.
Positive attracts positive. This is one of the core philosophies of Sinhasi. We believe that to get positive returns we must be filled with positivity in our thoughts and actions to create an abundance of wealth through strategic investing.
Skandamata is the mother of Lord Kartikeya (Skanda or Murugan) and is often shown holding her son in her lap. She represents motherly love and protection. Worshipping Skandamata is believed to bring blessings for motherhood and child welfare.
Sinhasi focuses on nurturing your investments and personal financial growth, drawing from Skandamata’s representation of wisdom and protection. By nurturing families through best practices, we strive to cultivate a thriving investment portfolio for generations.
Katyayani is a fierce form of Durga. She is associated with the legend of Sage Katyayan and is often depicted wielding various weapons. Katyayani signifies the power to destroy evil and ignorance. Devotees seek her blessings for courage and protection.
Making empowered decisions with the right information is crucial for anyone. Katyayani’s triumph over Mahishasura inspires us to ensure that we make diligent decisions for your financial success.
Kaalratri is a fearsome form of Durga, depicted with a dark complexion and a necklace of skulls. She is associated with the night and the destruction of darkness. Worshiping Kaalratri is believed to eliminate negativity and provide a spiritual awakening.
Life is filled with uncertain times. And such uncertain times can darken your intellect and spiritual being. Sinhasi believes in conquering this darkness through proper guidance, communication, discipline and patience to attain financial clarity and success.
Mahagauri is the epitome of purity and calmness. She is depicted as fair and radiantly beautiful. Mahagauri symbolises forgiveness and peace. Devotees pray to her for inner peace and serenity.
Purity and calmness are important for clarity and financial success. At Sinhasi, we believe in dynamic balance as the best discipline to follow for success. Remaining calm, even during stormy times is core to the Sinhasi way.
Siddhidatri is the ninth and final form of Navadurga. She is believed to grant divine blessings and supernatural powers to her devotees. Siddhidatri is often depicted sitting on a lotus and bestowing blessings upon those who seek spiritual growth and enlightenment.
As Siddhidatri’s ability to show devotees the realisation of the divine, Sinhasi strives to achieve alpha returns even during turbulent times through our best practices and disciplined processes. We ensure that every rupee you have earned works hardest for you for your financial victory. We aim to maximise the financial success of all our clients.
