Navaratri - Nine Nights for the Divine Mother
Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati

Full 11 Day Program - ($65)
Saturday, October 5 - Tuesday, October 15

Ganesha 1000 Fruit Yagya - 10/ 5 (morning), Navaratri - 10/5 - 10/13 (morning and evening), and Vijay Dashami Day - 10/13

Navaratri is one of our most elaborate and enjoyable yagya series. It 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. 

Our priests perform an elaborate Chandi (shakti or goddess) yagya from 7 AM to 1 PM each morning, 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.   

At the same time one priest will also recite Chandi Path every day of October in Varanasi. Our goal is to have as many Chandi Path mantra repetitions as possible during the month (close to 108). 

We are including a full day yagya for Ganesha at the beginning of Navaratri, featuring 1000 individual offerings of all the fresh fruits that Ganesha enjoys, each of which has a special esoteric meaning. This yagya removes obstacles to the successful performance of the Navaratri Program and on an individual level as well. 

The final day, Vijaya Dashami, will feature special pujas for Saraswati who is honored on this day of victory (October 13th) 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.
