Navaratri honors the Divine Mother in the form of Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati, who represent Power, Abundance and Wisdom in their most powerful and charming forms.

Each day, our priests perform an elaborate Chandi (shakti or goddess) yagya from 7 AM to 1 PM, followed by 2 hours of evening pujas when the Chandi Path Goddess Mantra text is recited along with the 1008 names (Sahasranam) of Lalitha; the most beautiful form of the goddess.

We are also including a full day Ganesha yagya at the beginning of Navaratri. This yagya removes obstacles to our progress towards enlightenment and material success.

The final day, Vijaya Dashami, will feature special pujas for Saraswati who is honored on this day of victory, symbolic of the victory of light over darkness and joy over suffering.  These yagyas are profoundly purifying and eliminate old stresses and bad karmas. As a result life is lived with more freedom, happiness and satisfaction.
