It is fun for them to come home from school and go to their friends’ houses with notes in hand. On the day of Kojagiri Purnima, Bhulabai is worshiped in Tipur Chandani by sitting in Makhar and offering Aras. This used to happen in Vidarbha about 10 to 15 years ago, but now girls are not getting time due to school timings and classes.

Nowadays Bhulabai is offered only on the day of Kojagari. Bhulabai is the form of goddess and she is called Gourai and she is Mahervasin, the beginning of the song is “First my worship was like Deva Dev Bai then when will you be proud of the first fish Sarawa Sarta Sarta Karagari Nandangaon Tirawari Mangoes are very ripe Bhulabai Raniche Dohale nine months nine fruits” At the end, her dohala is told, “Tila Nehuni Gara Palangavari there Shankar sat Shankar, our brother-in-law, guest for a day and a half”.

Devotees struggle to visit there. But if that is not possible, at least they must visit the goddess of the village. Some sisters visit daily.

Summary – Navratri Festival Marathi Information

While worshiping the various forms of the Goddess, devotion should be built up in the mind. In this way, one should get absorbed in the feet of the goddess with the spirit of getting rid of mental disorders. It is not enough to fast for nine days, but it is expected that the determination to get away from all mental disorders, sinful desires, and evil thoughts by assuming the meaning of fasting is to get away in this Navratri. This festival should be celebrated with the same sacred spirit to create the power of the power that the Goddess gave us.
