Navaratri
Celebration of the Divine Mother

Devi Puja Daily

Thursday, September 25th, 9:00pm, through Friday, October 3rd, 6am

The festival of Navaratri presents a great opportunity for spiritual uplift and renewal for all. We will celebrate with a series of nine pujas (ritual worship), each held in the evening on consecutive days. Through each puja we will honor a particular aspect of the Divine in the form of the Mother. The festival ends with a final puja in the morning of Vijaya Dasami, the Day of Victory.

All are welcome to attend the pujas; there is no charge. Donations to help cover costs and donations of flowers or prasad (offerings of sweets or fruit) are welcome. Help in preparation of the pujas is also welcome. Please call if you can offer a little of your time or have any questions.
