Navaratri Retreat – Cultivating the Divine Feminine
9 April @ 9:00 am - 17 April @ 12:00 pm IST
During the sacred days of Navaratri (the nine nights), we will have Devi-Puja with akhanda (24 hours non-stop) recitation of the Lalita-sahasra-nama (Thousand Names of Divine Mother). One may come and join the daily morning and evening pujas, join the recitation of the Lalita-sahasra-nama. Twelve priests preside over the pujas and the recitations, which are offered both at the Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama and Sadhana Mandir Ashram.
Our beloved Swami Veda Bharati has said, “These events are charged with special spiritual energy and a very special time to renew your silence and sadhana.”
In this special retreat with Rabindra Sahu, we will be learning about the principles of the Divine Feminine within the Nature and the entire Universe around us. Swamiji has also reminded us “to bring the feminine kindness, compassion, motherliness among all of us. This has nothing to do with the gender of the person undertaking the observance but rather it is for the enhancement of the motherliness in all of us.”
We will thereby learn how can we cultivate these divine feminine qualities within ourselves. All the participants will also get an opportunity to practice recitation of the Lalita-sahasra-nama.
