Navami is the Sanskrit word for "nine", and is the ninth day in the lunar fortnight (Paksha) of the Hindu calendar. Each month has two Navami days, being the ninth day of the "bright" (Shukla) and of the "dark" (Krishna) fortnights respectively.[1] Thus Navami occurs on the ninth and the twenty-fourth day of each month.
