This time of year is undeniably a blessing that helps us to deepen our relationship with the Divine Mother. The Divine Mother is the Mother of us all; She is the one who has given us the greatest gift there is — life.

For those new to the holiday, Navaratri is a nine-night celebration of the nine forms of Durga, the “remover of miseries”. We come together on these nights to adore the Divine Mother, to celebrate the triumph of good over evil, and to celebrate the triumph of Divine Love over the ego.

Durga has nine specific aspects to demonstrate the qualities that one needs on the spiritual path. Each night honours one of these forms and has a corresponding colour. The list below shows each day with its Devi and colour so that you can coordinate your wardrobe with the celebration:

When coming for the event, please ensure that you are dressed accordingly. Women should wear saris or leg length dresses. Men are asked to dress smartly or wear a kurta. If the weather is cold make sure your clothing is warm. 

Sponsoring Navaratri

You can co-sponsor a Navaratri Night. To get the benefit of all the prayers for the total 10 days, simply select one of the nights and let us know which one it is. You can sponsor a night at whatever level suits you: 500€ covers all the costs for the event: flowers, prasad, puja items, etc., but you can be part of a night with 100€, 200€, etc., too.

Tell us quickly so we can reserve a Sponsored Navaratri Night in your name!

Bhakti Marga has its headquarters at Shree Peetha Nilaya, meaning ‘Abode of the Maha Lakshmi’, the Divine Mother. It is located in the beautiful German countryside near Wiesbaden. Residents and guests come together every day to participate in special events, prayers, meditation, singing, seva, and to share their love of the Divine with one another.

In ancient times, yogis would receive Divine Inspiration through the connection to God in Nature. Shree Peetha Nilaya is such a place.
