The festival of Navratri is a ten-day celebration marked by prayers, fasting, feasting, and a deep spiritual connection with the divine. For Bollywood actress Jyoti Saxena, it’s a time to seek blessings from the goddess and engage in meaningful rituals close to her heart. Just like every year, Jyoti Saxena celebrated Navratri with great enthusiasm.
Jyoti Saxena is known for her spiritual nature and unwavering commitment to tradition. During this auspicious time, she observes a nine-day fast and participates in Kanya Pujan, a significant aspect of Navratri festivities.
She also shared her Navratri celebrations on social media, where she posted pictures of her visit to local Pandals to seek blessings from Maa Durga. Among the many traditions in her family, Kanya Bhojan, also known as Kanaki, holds a special place. This practice has been observed in her household for generations. Jyoti explained, “Kanya Bhojan, which is also called Kanaki, is performed in my house every year. We conduct the Maha Havan at home, wash the feet of young girls (Kanyas), and offer them a delicious homemade meal of Poori, Chana Sabji, and Halwa. We also present them with gifts. This ritual is a way to express our respect and gratitude for the divine feminine energy that surrounds us. It’s a humbling experience to witness their smiles and receive their blessings in return.”
Jyoti Saxena’s visits to Pandals for seeking blessings play a vital role in her Navratri celebrations. She shared, “Visiting the Pandals to seek Maa Durga’s blessings is a profoundly spiritual and peaceful experience for me. The atmosphere is filled with spiritual energy, and it’s a sensation that’s hard to put into words. Being in the presence of the divine and surrounded by the faith of so many people is genuinely uplifting.”
