Navaratri Sadhana is a festival of nine nights that is auspicious for the worship of Shakti in her three different forms as Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati. On the final day of Navaratri the birth of Lord Ram is celebrated. For the first three days chanting of the Durga Gayatri mantra, second three days chanting of Lakshmi Gayatri mantra and last three days the chanting of Saraswati Gayatri mantra for the total of 108 times will be conducted daily. On all days singing of the kirtans and songs dedicated to different forms of Shakti and Lord Ram will be conducted with a heart full of love and devotion.

Navaratri festival is observed twice a year, once in the month of Chaitra (March - April) and then in Aswayuja (September - October). It lasts for nine days in honor of the nine manifestations of Durga. During Navaratri (the word literally means “nine nights”) devotees of Durga observe a fasting, yogic and spiritual disciplines. Nava means Nine and Ratri means days so the nine days to invoke the cosmic force to infuse our-self with positivity, clarity, understanding, love along with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

The beginning of summer and the beginning of winter are two very important junctions of climatic and solar influence. These two periods are taken as sacred opportunities for the worship of the Divine Mother. They are indicated respectively by the Rama-Navaratri in Chaitra (April - May) and the Durga Navaratri in Aswayuja (September - October). The bodies and minds of people undergo a considerable change on account of the changes in Nature. Sri Rama is worshiped during Ramnavmi, and Mother Durga during Navaratri.

The program is a holistic system which addresses all aspects of human life in the spheres of physical health, mental, well-being, emotional, behavior, and work environment.
