In Physics, Power/Energy/Force is not associated with gender. But, when living things exist as male and female, the description of Power/Energy/Force may have gender association.  In Indian tradition, ‘Deva’ means God and ‘Devi’ means Goddess. Devi in Indian tradition is the personification of God’s Supreme Power/Force/ Energy or ‘SHAKTI’. To fully account for human existence, man needs two distinct or separate Principles that come together to produce the harmonious singular identity of the man. The issue is not about God’s gender. Father Principle is called Originating Principle. Mother Principle is called Source Principle, for Mother is the Source of Matter, Energy, and Knowledge to establish Life, a Living Thing. Father provides Identity to human form, Mother provides Substance, the structural and functional basis of the human form.

Shardiya Navratri refers to the Navratri Celebration during the Sharad Ritu or Autumn Season.

During 2020, Indians celebrate ‘DEVI NAVRATRI’ or ‘SHARAD NAVRATRI’ from Saturday, October 17, to Monday, October 26. The term ‘Nav’ or ‘Nava’ means Nine. ‘Ratri’ means Night. This celebration happens in the lunar month called ‘ASVAYUJA’ ( or ASHWAYUJA – September – October), the month in which Full Moon Day is associated with the first star (Tithi) called ‘ASVINI’ in Indian Astrology. Sharad Navratri commences on the first and ends on the tenth day of the bright half of the lunar month, Ashwin. The name “SHARDIYA” refers to the name of the Season or “RITU” called Sharad Ritu or Autumn.
