Navratri was celebrated at Bukovinian State Medical University

Wednesday, 17 October 2018 12:13

On October 13, 2018, the traditional nine-day Hindu festival Navratri was celebrated at the University with Garba dance. Garba is a Gujarati folk dance celebrated in Navratri, a celebration lasting nine nights. Garba songs typically revolve around the subjects of the nine goddesses. Garba styles vary from place to place in Gujarat. The word garba comes from the Sanskrit word for womb and so implies gestation or pregnancy – life.

 

The students were greeted by the Pro-Rector on Scientific-Pedagogical Work and Upbringing, Associate Professor Nina Zoriy, and the Dean, Medical Faculty №3, Associate Professor Ivan Savka. The Chief Tutor of the Medical Faculty №3 Oleksandra Garvasiuk, the Chief Tutor of the Medical Faculty №2 Yana Teleki, group tutors of the Medical Faculty №3 Svitlana Savka and Marianna Semyaniv joined the celebration.

Garba is performed in a circle as a symbol of the Hindu view of time. The rings of dancers revolve in cycles, as time in Hinduism is cyclical. As the cycle of time revolves, from birth, to life, to death and again to rebirth, the only thing that is constant is the Goddess, that one unmoving symbol in the midst of all of this unending and infinite movement. The dance symbolizes that God, represented in feminine form in this case, is the only thing that remains unchanging in a constantly changing universe.

The holiday is celebrated twice a year: during a light half of the spring month Chaitra (April-May) and autumn month Ashvinov (September-October) in the first day after full Moon.

Navratri is a symbol of human transformation on the way to improvement. It is the holiday of self-consciousness and moral purification. Traditionally it is a favourable period to initiate something new.

The pedagogical staff of BSMU congratulates the Indian Community on the occasion of the holiday!
