There are four Navratris in the year. Two in manifest form and two in secret form. The Navaratrias in manifest form are called Chaitra and Shardiya Navaratri and the Gupta Navaratrias fall in the month of Magha and Ashadh. Gupta Navratris have more importance than Chaitra and Shardiya Navratris, because the Goddess in them is present in its full form which is not manifest. In the Gupta Navaratris, both the scriptures and the tantrikotas are worshiped and remedies to please the goddess. But in Gupta Navaratri, more Tantrokta measures are taken. The most important and important thing in this is that seekers have to worship Goddess with complete restraint, rules and purity.
