A very lucky Alejandra… whoever she is.
Ratri means “night” and Nava means “nine”. At Navaratri (“nine nights”), the Lord in the form of the Mother Goddess is worshipped in Her various forms as Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati. Though the Goddess is one,
She is represented and worshipped in three different aspects. On the first three nights of the festival, Durga is worshipped. On the following three, Lakshmi and then Saraswati Devi on the last three nights. The followingtenth day is called Vijayadasami. Vijaya means “victory”, the victory over our own minds that can come only when we have worshipped these three: Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati.

As autumn makes its presence felt, this GIF resonated with me a lot. Hundreds of golden-light maple leaves cascade from a dark sky in a captivating shower, like little specks of gold leaf.
This GIF was featured on the post “Whatever comes from you is pleasing to me, Whether you make me cry or laugh, Whether you make me live or die…/…Hoştur bana senden gelen. İster ağlat, ister güldür, İster yaşat, ister öldür…“. The post was written by a blogging friend, Semra Polat, who is behind the multilingual spiritual blog “YA BAKİ ENTEL BAKİ”
I’m having my lunch right now. Pitta bread with houmous, a banana, a homemade sandwich with pepperoni and two Penguin biscuits. Our office kitchen doesn’t have a cooker so frying ANYTHING is not going to happen. Anyways I always burn stuff. Not 100% always though.
