Join us for the Temple’s Navaratri Brahmotsavam!

Navaratri is quickly approaching! We welcome one and all to join us as we seek the most loving motherly blessings of Sri Rajarajeswari Mata. This year, the Navaratri Brahmotsavam will be celebrated from Sep 29 to Oct 9, 2019.

Special Yantra Pujas Each Night of Navaratri

This year for the first time, a different yantra puja will be performed each night of Navaratri. (Please see below for sponsorship options.) This is in addition to the Sri Chakra Navavarana Puja that will also take place each night.

Each yantra puja will be dedicated to a specific deity from the Sri Vidya tradition. Through the power in the bijaksharas of the sacred Sri Vidya mantras, divine energy is channeled into the unique yantras, where it then radiates out to all the people.

Yantra for Sri Kamalambika

Blessings include inner purification, spiritual upliftment, removal of obstacles, and every kind of material and spiritual progress. Even more power will be added to these yantra pujas since the mantras will also be offered into the home fire in the morning. You can view the full schedule and details from our 2019 Navaratri Flyer. Feel free to share the flyer with any of your friends and family who would also be interested.

There are many ways to sponsor the Navaratri Brahmotsavam and receive sacred prasadam as well as the blessings of participating in uniquely auspicious Navaratri pujas. In addition to the blessed coin and daily Navaratri sankalpam sponsorships, we also have some unique Yantra Puja Sponsorships this year.

The Greatness of Worshiping Divine Mother during Sarada Navaratri

For devotees of Sri Devi, Sarada Navaratri is the most important time in the entire year for performing seva, pujas and homas, and seeking Her divine grace for inner peace, prosperity and abundance, and spiritual bliss. During this time, Sri Mata’s infinite love pours onto the entire Earth, showering all beings with the nectar of compassion. By performing or witnessing pujas and homas during this time, we can attract that divine nectar into our hearts and fill our lives with grace and the blessings of divine protection.

Any human mother will give her child whatever he or she needs, whether it is food, clothes, guidance, love or education, and Divine Mother is no different. Sri Lalitambika takes many forms in order to guide and bless Her devotees according to whatever they need.

With Sri Mata’s grace, we can achieve all of our noble goals, whether it is to have a loving and dharmic marriage and family life, to regain our health and mental peace, to gain and share financial wealth, or to merge in the highest consciousness of Lord Siva Himself!

This Navaratri at the Temple represents a very rare opportunity to come and be drenched in the divine vibrations of Sri Chakraraja Simhasaneswari. We welcome everyone to come and receive Sri Rajarajeswari Mata’s most loving blessings.

During the auspicious Sarada Navaratri, may Divine Mother Rajarajeswari’s most loving grace shower down upon all beings, and may all be drenched in the nectar of Her motherly love.
