Navratri at Ramanasramam

by

The “Nine Nights festival, ” Navratri celebrates the Divine Mother. It is a festival dedicated to the worship of Durga. The word Navaratri literally means nine nights in Sanskrit. During these nine nights and ten days, nine forms of Shakti/Devi are worshiped. The tenth day is commonly referred to as Vijayadashami or “Dussehra.”

This is always celebrated at Ramanasramam. Here are just a few photos from this year.

The Goddess is set up in the Mother’s Shrine room. This is after the procession on Saturday.
