Navratri will be celebrated from the dates of September 21 to 29 in 2017, and will culminate with Vijayadashami on September 30. These nine nights celebrate the Divine Feminine, and are a time of great festivity in India.

Sadhguru has created a special sadhana for this period to help a devotee become more receptive to Devi’s grace.

Navratri Sadhana

Celebrations at Linga Bhairavi ensure that everyone is able to make use of the support that nature offers. For those who wish to connect with Devi, Sadhguru has offered a simple but powerful Navratri sadhana for all, to experience Devi’s Grace at home. The sadhana is to be practiced on each of the days starting from September 21 to 29, by doing the following:

  • Light a lamp for Devi.
  • Chant a minimum of three cycles of the “Jai Bhairavi Devi” stuthi in front of a photo of Devi, Linga Bhairavi Gudi, Linga Bhairavi Yantra or Avighna Yantra. It is advisable to chant eleven cycles. (One cycle is the recitation of all 33 names of Devi, as listed below). The chant is available as part of the Isha Chants free mobile app.
  • Make an offering. There are no restrictions on what can be offered.

The sadhana can be done at any time of the day or night and can be done by all. There are no dietary restrictions, though it is preferable to have sattvic food as is customary during the festival. The sadhana can be done along with other traditional celebrations. For enquiries, contact info@lingabhairavi.org.
