It is said that there are many such things in Hindu almanac which should be done and there is a lot of benefit from doing it. In such a situation, the festival of Navratri is celebrated for the whole nine days and this thing has great importance in Hinduism. It is said that for the whole 9 days, different forms of Goddess Durga is worshipped and many people also keep fast during this time and those who are unable to do fast then they can only worship the Goddess and recite Durga Saptashati. Let us tell you that many people sow barley on the first day of Navratri, but most of the people don't know its importance. Today we are going to tell you the reason behind this.
According to our scriptures, barley was the first crop after the beginning of creation, so whenever goddesses are worshipped, barley is offered in the havan. It is believed that the barley that is grown in Navratri is indicative of some things related to the future. In fact, the main reason behind this is that barley is considered as Brahma and we should respect the grain. It is said to sown barley sprouts does not grow in two to three days, then there is no good sign for you in the future, that is, you will get the fruit only after hard work.
With this, when the colour of barley is half yellow from the bottom and half green from the top, it means half the time of the coming year will be fine. With this, the colour of barley is half green from the bottom and half yellow from the top, it means that the beginning of the year will pass well, but later you will have to face troubles. On the other hand, if your sown barley is growing in white or green colour, then it is said to be very auspicious.
