Navratri has great importance in Hinduism. The Shardiya Navratri will begin on October 17. From this day to the next nine days, nine different forms of Mother Durga will be worshiped. Actually, Navratri comes four times a year in the months of Paush, Chaitra, Ashadh and Ashwin. The Navratras that come in Chaitra and Ashwin are predominant, while the other two months of Navratri coming in Pausha and Ashada are celebrated as Gupta Navratras.
Since the month of Ashwin begins with the onset of autumn, these Navratras of Ashwin month are known as Shardiya Navratri.
According to Acharya Indu Prakash, the nine-day Shardiya Navaratri will start from 17 and last till 25 October. On the first day of Navratri, Ghata Sthapana or Kalash Sthapana is done for the Mother Goddess.

This is how to establish an urn
First of all, clean soil or northeast direction should be cleaned by sprinkling water and laying clean soil or sand. Then a layer of barley should be laid on that clean soil or sand.
A layer of clean soil or sand should be laid on it and water should be washed. Water absorption means that water should be sprinkled on top of that soil layer. Now an urn of clay or metal should be installed on it. The urn should be filled with clean, pure water and a coin should be put in that urn. If possible, the water of holy rivers must also be added to the urn water.
