Navratri 2020: Devi temples in India allow live darshan of goddesses

The current Navratri Festival is very unique for the fact that all the
devi shaktipeeth have been closed due to the ongoing nation-wide lockdown.

Although, special Navratri ritualistic worship of the Goddess is being conducted by the in-house priests, the devotees have been missing out on the joy of
darshan they were expecting during the festival.

Considering the inability of the devotees to visit any
devi shrine in India, several temples are now giving live telecasts of the worship and
darshan of the deities.

Mata Vaishno Devi shrine has been regularly telecasting daily worship, special rituals and live telecast of the enshrined deities in the holy cave located on the Trikuta Mountain in Katra, Jammu.

On the other hand, the temple of Devi Sharda located in Maihar town can have online
darshan the deity on their mobiles and laptops. In order to control the spread of Coronavirus, the Maihar temple administration has, however, cancelled the Navratri fair, which was supposed to be held this season.

Suresh Agarwal, Sub-divisional magistrate of Maihar, told TOI that the live telecast was allowed as a measure to make sure devotees can have
darshan. So far, around 2000 visitors have seen the telecast on the official website of the temple. Also, no person has been tested positive for Coronavirus in Maihar district as yet.

On the other hand, Una district administration will run Devi Chintpurni’s aarti online during Chaitra Navratri Mela. Chintpurni Temple is one of the nine major
shaktipeeth of Himachal Pradesh.
