Happy Navratri!

Tomorrow, Friday April the 8th marks our first day of the auspicious and astrologically powerful celebrations –  The Navratri Festival!

NAVRATRI (pronounced as ‘Nav-ra-tri or ‘Nuhv-rah-tree’) is a nine day festive time to celebrate and honor the glory of the Supreme Mother. Navratri means Nine nights of honoring. The multitude forms of Divine Mother are respected and worshipped through these nine days and nights.
Mother Divine, whose glory is unsurpassed, blesses us all with Her love and compassion to show us the rightful pathway so that we may be in humbleness and gratitude as we take our journey of this life. Let us take this opportunity to honor Divine Mother who is all loving and giving always.​​
The auspicious festival of Navratri is celebrated two times in a year. Once in the beginning of Spring and the next in the beginning of Autumn. These two periods coincide with the climatic and astrological changes and are an extremely powerful time to cleanse the mind, body and spirit. It is a sacred opportunity to express devotion and reverence to the divinity of Divine Mother.
The forms of Supreme Mother are honoured in many different ways by different cultures. Amongst the Hindus, Mother Goddesses are worshipped in the popular forms of Durga, Saraswati, Lakshmi, Annapurna, Parvati and more. Christians pray to the Virgin Mary, Mother of Lord Jesus. While the Greeks worship Goddess Gaia, and the Egyptians honor Goddesses Hathor and Isis.
Similarly, the Mother energies reign supreme in all cultures and we are blessed that we receive this auspicious opportunity twice a year to express our love and devotion to the cosmic’s Female Divinity who is an embodiment of the infinite universal power of valor, righteousness, prosperity and wisdom.
Prayers, Chants and worshipping the energies of the Divine Mother during this period assist the seekers of truth to uplift their vibrational frequency through gratitude, humbleness and sincerity. During this period with the heightened strength of the cosmic energies with Divine Mother’s blessings, seekers are able to breakthrough ego, ignorance, desire and other patterns that bind humans to the world of illusion. Breaking through these patterns enables in attaining freedom from the cycle of karma.

During the nine day period of Navratri, the cosmic energies are heightened and devotees are able to lift their vibrational frequency through their gratitude, commitment and devotion to the energies of Divine Mother. Many devotees fast through the day and consume one meal of blessed food during the first eight days of Navratri. On the ninth day, a big feast is organized to culminate the period of festive celebrations. Prayers and chanting are the of prime focus during this time, showing our devotion and dedication of uplifting ourselves.
It is also understood that during this energetically powerful time, all good actions bring positive results in many folds, so besides doing good deeds, making offerings and donations are some amazing things one can do for their Higher Self.
