This year, we will have a special Blessed Coin sponsorship. Silver coins will be placed inside the main Navaratri Kalasam, so that they absorb the holy vibrations of all the homas and pujas through the entire ten-day festival. The coins can then be kept in your wallet or your shrine room for divine protection and blessings.

The Greatness of Sri Chakra Navavarana Homa

For devotees of Sri Devi, Sarada Navaratri is the most important time in the entire year for performing seva, pujas and homas, and seeking Her divine grace for inner peace, prosperity and abundance, and spiritual bliss. During this time, Sri Mata’s infinite love pours onto the entire Earth, showering all beings with the nectar of compassion. By performing or witnessing pujas and homas during this time, we can attract that divine nectar into our hearts and fill our lives with grace and the blessings of divine protection.

This year, the very auspicious “Sri Chakra Navavarana Homa” will be performed during all the nine days of Navaratri. In this powerful homa, which is not widely performed, all of the divine energies residing within the Sri Chakra are invoked into the homa fire and worshipped with the appropriate mudras and dravyas according to Sri Vidya. These divine energies are nothing but manifestations of the supreme Sri Rajarajeswari Mata Herself. She takes all these various forms in order to bless Her devotees with everything needed for a happy and successful life.

Any human mother will give her child whatever he or she needs, whether it is food, clothes, guidance, love or education, and Divine Mother is no different. Sri Lalitambika takes many forms in order to guide and bless Her devotees according to whatever they need.

With Sri Mata’s grace, we can achieve all of our noble goals, whether it is to have a loving and dharmic marriage and family life, to regain our health and mental peace, to gain and share financial wealth, or to merge in the highest consciousness of Lord Siva Himself!

This Navaratri at the Temple represents a very rare opportunity to come and be drenched in the divine vibrations of Sri Chakraraja Simhasaneswari. We welcome everyone to come and receive Sri Rajarajeswari Mata’s most loving blessings.

During the auspicious Sarada Navaratri, may Divine Mother Rajarajeswari’s most loving grace shower down upon all beings, and may all be drenched in the nectar of Her motherly love.
