Navratri puja is the most auspicious time to please the goddess durga, maa saraswati and laxmi including their other incarnations. According to lord brahma those who keep navaratri vrat are blessed to live this mortal world with all pleasures this life has to offer, a person who keeps this vrat is blessed by all the nine incarnation of the goddess.
But there is always a method to do everything in life though it is absolutely true that above all rituals is your devotion, without devotion no amount of rituals and viddhi will make you observe the blessings of maa durga but at the same time if you have devotion then you want to make sure that every ritual, pooja is performed as per vedas as we know devotion is nothing but love towards the deity and whoever we love we show are complete devotion.
Navratri lasts for nine day and ten nights, the tenth night is the most important but according to our rituals, vrat is observed on all the nine days including puja viddhi.
