Navaratri Celebration 9 nights - Devi Mantras & Devi Havans


9 nights of
Devi Puja Sadhana 

Navaratri Satsang by Sw. Satsangi



20 - 30 Sep     $950 Enrol
or $95 per night  Enrol

Arrive in time for Devi Havan @ 5.30pm

Chanting of the Devi Bhajans, morning havan mantras and the Durga Path will be lead by Sw. Muktimurti.  Muktis ability to teach the mantras during Navaratri cultivates understanding and a deep inner experience during this time of auspiciousness and sadhana to overcome the obstacles in life. 

The text Sri Saundarya Lahari is a compilation of beautiful stotras - verses in praise of Devi or Tripura Sundari.  Along with the daily chanting of verses from the text, a special sadhana of discussion and writing of the stotras – verses with the associated mantras and yantras will be included in the Navaratri program.  The sessions will be conducted by Sw. Atmamuktananda. 

Please bring your text, a special note book and a nice pen to write the mantras and draw the yantras associated with the verses. This sadhana can be continued at home as an anusthana (dedicated practice for a duration of time).  The tantras declare the Sri Saundarya Lahari sadhana assists one in overcoming obstacles in life.  

Navaratri, literally meaning 'nine nights', commemorates the slaying of the demons by invoking Rama and the goddess Durga, ensuing victory of good over evil. In yoga, these nine nights are considered by the constellations formed and the ancients, auspicious for conducting an anushthana or fixed sadhana in order to bring about inner transformation.

Over nine nights of mantra chanting, havan and satsang, negative tendencies are rooted out and alignment with the positive takes place. The power of Devi, or cosmic energy, is invoked in three forms - Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati - thereby awakening the appropriate energy needed for transformation to take place. 

Firstly by cleaning and purifying the inner environment; secondly by decorating, beautifying and nourishing the inner landscape; and lastly, allowing energy to flow creatively in an appreciation of life itself.

On the final day all sadhana and any personal austerities are ceased and Vijaya the victory day is celebrated by havan and expressing joy and upliftment for the beauties and abundance showered upon us in life.

Course material and group meetings are consistent with the Living Consciously concept of awareness.

  • Yoga Nidra, the daily topic to witness and reflect on and the balance of all the yogas including Karma Yoga were highlights in my life changing experience. 
  • Wonderful. It is one of the most peaceful settings I've had the privilege to be in. I am inspired.  
  • Location, affordability & ethos
  • Group sessions. Complete toolkit to help re-assess your mind/lifestyle
