Navarati

Navaratri is a 9-night festival celebrating Goddess Durga’s victories over the demons that keep us from realising the Divine. 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. Dussehra celebrates the victory of good over evil that is demonstrated by Goddess Durga’s triumph over the demon Mahishasura.

Impressions of Navaratri 2019

What to Expect During Navarati

Each night we worship a different aspect of the Divine Mother with special prayers, pujas, and bhajans. After a nightly yagna (holy fire ceremony), an abhishekam will be performed and an abundance of prasad will be offered to Her Feet. The story of Devi’s 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. Dussehra is highlighted by a yagna (holy fire ceremony) and Guru abhishekam.

Multiply the Blessings

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.

This event is donation based. You may either sponsor the entire Navararti event with a donation of Є180 or more, or you can make a smaller donation. Please use the appropriate widget below. Everyone who sponsors the event benefits from all the prayers done, even when you are unable to attend!

Place: Shree Peetha Nilaya

Shree Peetha Nilaya is the 'Home of Maha-Lakshmi' and a beautiful place to experience Divine Love. 

Shree Peetha Nilaya - Bhakti Marga

In ancient times, yogis would receive Divine Inspiration through the connection to God in Nature. Shree Peetha Nilaya is such a place.
