HIGHLIGHT OF THE MONTH


NAVARATRI 2014


Navaratri starts on Thursday September 25 and ends on Saturday October 4.

durga, lakshmi, saraswati, day of victory

We celebrate the female aspect of the divine for nine consecutive nights in late fall. She is the universal mother, the creative aspect of the Absolute. She brings balance. The first three nights are dedicated to Durga, who, wielding her powerful weapons, can destroy our impurities and vices. For the next three nights, we worship Lakshmi who bestows spiritual wealth. The final three nights we praise Saraswati, goddess of wisdom. The daily puja follows the final class of the evening. At 6:00 on the morning of the tenth day, the festival culminates with Vijayadasami, a lavish puja and blessing of our "instruments of karma." We bring laptops, musical instruments, photos, notebooks—anything that represents what we do in life. All these are worshipped as the Devi herself.
