JAI MA!

Navaratri is a 9-night festival celebrating Goddess Durga’s victories over the demons that represent the negative qualities that keep us from realising our true, eternal self. The Divine Mother, in the form of Durga Maa, is the Remover of Miseries. She appears in 9 different forms, each an embodiment of the qualities that one needs to advance on the spiritual path.

Day 1: Shailaputri Devi

Shailaputri is the most powerful and glorified of all the nine forms of Durga. She is an incarnation of Parvati. In a previous birth, She was Sati who threw Herself into the yagna fire due to Her father’s insult of Her beloved husband, Shiva. She was born again as the daughter of the Himalayas and took the aspect of Shailputri to destroy pride and the demons of ‘too much’ and ‘too little’. We pray to Her to help us surrender to the Divine. Her colour is red.

DID YOU  KNOW?

The spring and fall are seasons of transition; they are ideal times to restore balance, both physically and spiritually. Ancient yogis chose this time to focus on their sadhana and to fast in order to cleanse the physical body in preparation for the food changes of the new season. Navaratri is a time when we do both in the company of sangha, our spiritual community. Fall Navaratri is connected to Devi, the feminine aspect of the Divine. This festival concludes with Dussehra, the victory day when Durga Maa’s triumph over the demon Mahishasura is celebrated.
