Navratri Celebrations - 2019 with Gurudev

Navratri is the festival of nine nights where we celebrate the divine feminine by getting back to the source with silence, meditations, vedic homas and chants.

According to Vedic sciences, matter reverts to its original form to recreate itself again and again. The creation is cyclical; everything is recycled by nature – a continuous process of rejuvenation. The human mind, however, lags behind in this routine cycle of creation. Navratri is a festival for one to take the mind back to its Source.

Night is also called ratri  because it brings rejuvenation. It gives relief at the three levels of our existence – physical, subtle and causal. While fasting detoxifies the body, silence purifies the speech and brings rest to the chattering mind, and meditation takes one deep into one’s own being.

Special pujas honoring all aspects of life and nature are performed during Navratri, in recognition of the one Divinity in every form and every name. The nine days of Navratri are also an opportunity to rejoice in the three primordial qualities that make up the universe.

Navratri celebration with Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at The Art of Living International Center is an excellent opportunity for every seeker to get back to the true Source. We welcome you home with a bouquet of special programs during Navratri.
