Navaratri, or Nine days of the Devi and Vijayadashami will be observed from Monday, September 26 through Tuesday, October 4. Vijayadashami will be observed after Mahanavami in Amritapuri - details to follow.

Timings

  • Weekdays: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
  • Saturday and Sunday: 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm

The word Navaratri means 'nine nights' in Sanskrit. Navaratri is a time of sadhana, of conquering our inner negativities to gain greater will power and self-control, of awakening the right knowledge from within. Vijayadasami marks the successful completion of this occasion.
During these nine nights and ten days, three days each are devoted to honoring or celebrating the different aspects of the divine mother, Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati. Vijayadashami day or 'victory day' is traditionally an auspicious time for starting new ventures.

Read Amma's message for 2016 Navaratri.
