The night following the fortnight of remembrance of ancestors marks the beginning of a nine nights festival known as ‘Nav Ratri’ (Sanskrit: nine nights).

The nine nights of Nav-ratri celebrate and honor the nine different subtle and deep manifestations / aspects of divine-mother known as Nava Durga. Each day is celebrated in the name of nine different goddesses, all different forms of Goddess Durga. These are –

Maha Gauri

The last day is for goddess Durga.

The programme is for nine days — 7th October 2021 to 15th October 2021. Daily Zoom sessions will be conducted for little more than one hour from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm IST (Indian Standard Time). If sufficient number of participants are interested then sessions can be held from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Check your local time here

Each day, for little more than an hour, we will meet virtually. During this time we will visit the legend of each goddess, obtain learnings, chant sacred mantra for each goddess, and have discussions.

The sessions will be recorded. If a participant joins after the start date then she can view/listen to the recordings for the previous days.

There is an application form fee of USD 10 (or Rs. 500). Participation is free for all nine days. After each session a participant will have an option to make voluntary charity donation of any (or no) amount.
