A great Maha Navratri Festival lineup on September 30 at Rosehill Racecourse

The Maha Navratri (The Great Navratri) is a spiritual festival that is celebrated for nine nights once every year during the beginning of October. It is the celebration of the nine forms of Shakti (Mother Goddess). This is a very important festival in the Hindu calendar as it is the lead up to Diwali (Festival of Lights).

Maha Navratri teaches us that spirituality enhances human values as love, compassion and enthusiasm. It is not limited to any religion or culture hence it is open to all people. This festival will make us feel the spiritual bond that we share as part of the human family which is more prominent than nationality, gender, religion, profession or other identities that separates us.

The Maha Navratri Festival this year, organized by Australian Indians Ltd, is promoting the theme ‘unity in diversity – a journey towards spirituality’ where a huge line up of cultural items, dandiya, yagna, kirtan and bhajans, prashad along with a variety of food, fashion and jewellery will form a part of great traditional experience on September 30 at Rosehill Racecourse. The entry fee is $7 with free parking and there are $5,000 worth of prize give-aways for all.

Contact Gargi Tripathi on 0439 009 989 if anyone is interested in presenting a cultural item.
