Navaratri: Nine Nights of the Divine Mother
7:30 PM Thursday, September 21 –
9:00 PM Saturday, September 30, 2017
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.
Diwali: Festival of Light

Celebrate the Festival of Lights with the Sivananda community through satsang, "association of the wise," and puja! Satsang is a gathering for spiritual practice that includes silent meditation, Kirtan (chanting of Sanskrit mantras), a talk or reading on a spiritual topic, and prayers for peace. With the aid of external symbols, we invoke Divine energies.
