Navaratri Puja Invoking divinity with in

(Sep 25 - Oct 4, 2014)

The nights of Navratri are devoted to the reverence of Goddess Durga, who is worshipped in many forms. Prayers are offered to Goddess Durga, as she is considered the manifestation of the absolute energy that pervades the Universe. Special pujas are conducted all through the nine days.

First 3 days, the Mother is adored as supreme power and force, as Durga. Mother Durga helps us to destroy all our impurities, our vices, our defects. Also, She is the power that protects our spiritual practice from its many dangers and pitfalls. Thus the first three days, which mark the first stage or the destruction of impurity and determined effort and struggle to root out the evil tendencies in your mind, are set apart for the worship of the destructive aspect of the Mother.

Second 3 days Goddess Lakshmi is workshiped to gain, steady, calm and serene effort to develop purity. Goddess Lakshmi bestows the inexhaustible divine wealth or Deivi Sampath. Lakshmi is the wealth-giving aspect of God. She is purity itself.

Last 3 days worship of Mother Saraswathi takes place who is divine knowledge personified, the embodiment of knowledge of the Absolute. The sound of Her celestial veena (musical instrument) awakens the notes of the sublime utterances of the Upanishads which reveal the Truth, and the sacred monosyllable, Om. She bestows the knowledge of the supreme, as well as full knowledge of the Self as represented by Her pure, dazzling snow-white apparel.

The 10th day, Vijaya Dasami, celebrates the victory, the achievement of the goal. Vijaya dasami marks the triumphant ovation of the soul at having attained liberation while living in this world, through the descent of knowledge by the Grace of Goddess Saraswathi. The soul rests in his own Supreme Self or Satchidananda Brahman.
