I love this word. Now, I’ll admit that it may conjure up images of a Hindu festival, but I’ll also say that the word navratri means “three brothers” in Sanskrit. It’s a Sanskrit name that is widely used in Hinduism, as well as the Hindu calendar.
The three brothers are the Rishis, the sage brothers who were responsible for the creation of the universe. The word comes from the Sanskrit “nav” (nine) and “rat” (to create), and the word “ruhi” (creature, spirit, or soul), which is the root of the word, navratri. In this case, it means to create something to the best of your ability.
In the Hindu calendar however, the Navratri festival falls on the 15th day of the Hindu month of Chaitra (January), and it is in honor of the three brothers who created all of the universe.
Rishis are revered in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, but the sage brothers are just that; the sage brothers who created the universe. There are many other names for these brothers, including Mahamaya, Vasishtha, Vishnu, and Shiva, but I’ve always thought the Sanskrit name navratri was more fitting. The word nav is the root of the word, navratri.
It is believed that the word navratri was not originally used as a title for the sage brothers, but as the name for the first of the three rishis, who created the universe. Although the word is commonly used to refer to the sage, navratri is also used to refer to the rishi’s brother. The difference is that the rishis were created by the three sage brothers, but the rishis themselves were not.
The rishis are the three wise men in the Vedas, who created the universe by creating the three primary elements, water, fire, and earth.
Navratri is a religious festival, or festival of the sage, where the sage and sage’s friends (the sage’s associates) partake in a ritual which can either be physical or spiritual. The sage, who is usually a rishi, is usually a sage who is a highly respected and respected sage. The sage’s friends are usually called the rishis (sages). They are either wise or learned.
As the rishi in our story tells us, these are the nine wise men who created the universe by creating the three primary elements, water, fire, and earth.
The rishis sages have been the most important part of the world’s religion for thousands of years. In the Rig Veda they are called chaitras. The word chaitra is derived from the word chaitra sage, which means wise man. The three main rishis, as the Rig Veda makes clear, are the Sage of the Universe, the Sage of Wisdom, and the Sage of Knowledge. The Sage of the Universe is the ultimate sage of all.
