Navaratri

September 26, 2022 @ 18:00 - October 5, 2022 @ 18:00

Navaratri is a 9-night festival celebrating Goddess Durga’s victories over the demons that represent the negative qualities that keep us from realising our true, eternal self. The Divine Mother, in the form of Durga Maa, is the Remover of Miseries. She appears in 9 different forms, each an embodiment of the qualities that one needs to advance on the spiritual path.

Did You know?

The spring and fall are seasons of transition; they are ideal times to restore balance, both physically and spiritually. Ancient yogis chose this time to focus on their sadhana and to fast in order to cleanse the physical body in preparation for the food changes of the new season. During Navaratri fasting and spiritual practices are auspicious.

What to expect?

Each night we worship a different aspect of the Divine Mother with special prayers, pujas, and bhajans. After the yajna (holy fire ceremony) and abhishekam, Devi will be dressed and offered an abundance of prasad. The story of Her victories over numerous demons, the triumph of good over evil and the elevation of Divine Love over the ego will be read each evening from the Devi Mahatmyam.
Each celebration day has a corresponding color. The list below shows the Goddess and their corresponding colour so you can match your outfit to it:
26.09. Shailaputri Devi, red colour
27.09. Brahmacharini Devi, white colour
28.09. Chandraganta Devi, orange colour

2.10. Kalaratri Devi, dark colour

Do you want to receive even greater punja and help us organise a beautiful celebration?

When we offer our love to the Divine, the Divine showers us with blessings. Giving from the heart is a true blessing in and of itself. Giving without expecting anything in return multiplies the blessings even more, especially when you selflessly sponsor an event. Your donation helps to support the event. Everyone who makes a contribution benefits from the prayers that are done, even if you are unable to attend. Thank you so much for your generous support!
