Program

Navaratri translates as nine nights. The festival is observed twice a year at the beginning of summer and winter when there are two very important junctures of climatic change and solar influence. These two junctures have been chosen as opportunities for the worship of the divine power of the Mother because it is believed that it is the divine power of Shakti that provides energy for the earth to move around the sun and that this divine power can be honored as it maintains the correct balance of the universe.

At these times of changes in climate, your body and mind also undergo a considerable change, and hence, you worship the divine power to bestow upon your grace and blessings to help maintain your physical and mental balance as well as your spiritual development. During the Navaratri, you invoke and worship the Divine Mother. In Hinduism, the energy of the Mother is represented by the goddess Durga. This energy is also referred to as Devi (goddess) or Shakti (energy or power).

It is understood that it is this energy that helps the divine to carry out the universal play of creation, preservation, and destruction. You will celebrate Navaratri in various ways, including the creating of a Yantra symbolizing a particular aspect of the feminine energy. This is usually a Yantra of one of the Maha Vidyas, one of the ten wisdom goddesses from the Tantric tradition. The Yantra can be made with colored rice or, on special occasions, it can be made with sprouted wheat grass.

In both cases, the Yantra is charged with a specific mantra. You then recite another mantra so that during these nine auspicious nights, the aspirant can worship the Mother through Sadhana (spiritual practice). You also offer daily puja which consists of offering flowers and light to the Yantra or deity. Devotional songs are also offered, as well as a fire ceremony. Navaratri is a time for the celebration of life and a beautiful way to honor the divine feminine.
