Navaratri Sadhana - Receiving the Grace of the Goddess
 

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.


Read in Hindi: नवरात्रि

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:

List

  • 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.

Is this Sadhana only for ladies?

3 years 9 months ago

only women are to perform this sadhana?

1 year 9 months ago

could you please provide linga bhairavi stuthi written in sanskrit.please.

3 years 9 months ago

What can be made as an offer. Should it be prasadam or something else

3 years 9 months ago

Guruji - Is it 24th or 25th tht we should start the Sadana?

2 years 6 months ago

While chanting Maa Linga Bairavi Stuti / aarti etc. which direction should I be facing. Another query is that, to begin with can I start worship of Maa Linga Bhairavi with her photograph and picture of Sadhguru or all of the "photo of Devi, Linga Bhairavi Gudi, Linga Bhairavi Yantra" plus photo of Sadhguru are must.

3 years 9 months ago

There are no such restrictions to do the Navaratri Sadhana.

1 year 9 months ago

Sorry, we don't have that written in Sanskrit.

3 years 9 months ago

Do I need to remember Stuthi or i can read n chant?

3 years 9 months ago

Navaratri sadhana starts from September 25, continue the sadhana until October 3.

1 year 10 months ago

can i please know if i can do the navaratri sadhana during menstrual period.

3 years 9 months ago

No. Men also can do the Navaratri Sadhana.

1 year 9 months ago

can this sadhana be continued after navarathri?

3 years 9 months ago

Sorry for the delayed reply. I hope you're into the Navratri Sadhana. Even otherwise, I feel you can offer yourself to Devi in ways said above even now. Navratri isn't over. And, of course, whenever possible in future. I mean Devi can be celebrated even after Navratri. So, no regrets, if any.
What I told you will hold true, for your plan of using Devi's picture. Simply put, if your cycle begins, just have a head bath every day, as you start your Sadhana. Hope you're used to it on all days of the process. So, nothing notable really. What I learnt from Mystic's Musings is that once a woman has a head-bath during such a time, her aura gets cleansed, and that's enough. And, the use of a picture is the source of your another doubt. Once, I heard Sadhguru talk on a video about pictures and reverberations from them, which can actually be known by the use of Rudraksh-mala. Wish you get to see it once. Now, I'll give you the gist of the matter. Pics of Sadhguru, Dhyanalinga and Linga Bhairavi are sure to reverberate positive energy, which is very much as what one knows in their presence. So, you can go on with the process with Devi's picture.
Sadhguru says if you're willing, the Existence answers. It has been very true for me, as many things I knew from Him. Just be willing, open and receptive, and you'll be transported to the Lap of Grace. Effortlessly, things will unfurl. Jai Bhairavi Devi! Shambho's Shambhavi will take care. I wish you His Grace and Her Boundless Love...

I don't have a picture but I have the Linga Bhairavi lamp with her image on it. Is it okay to just do the sadhana infront of the lamp and make an offering.

3 years 9 months ago

Thank you very much Sadhguru! Please accept pranam!

3 years 9 months ago

You can read it from a 'print'-copy or from a digital copy, until you get it memorized. What is most important is you chant it with utmost awareness. From my experience, the chant certainly brings intense awareness, as I start off. Yet, the best thing is to remember to do it the right way with absolute awareness, so you become one with Her.

3 years 9 months ago

Yes, you can do the sadhana in front of the lamp or you can just take print of Devi photo from the lingabhairavi.org site also.

1 year 9 months ago

what difference do different pictures of devi make? can i use all of them or just one.

3 years 9 months ago

With this Navratri, let The Game begin.

3 years 9 months ago

You can offer anything to Devi. And the best, of course, is yourself. According to me, 'anything' here is anything that you may wish for yourself. Isn't that the best way to identify what one can offer Devi? You may offer her clothing(a saree), food (its wise to be satvic and thus, devoid of negative pranic stuff such as garlic, green chillies, onion, asafoetida and brinjal), flowers and everything else you wish to adorn her with (bangles, anklets, ear-rings). Sounds fanatic to some, but its got to be a great time with the Goddess. Just treat her this Dussehra. I heard that Bhairavi's Grace can be enjoyed the most by offfering her: rice, green gram and sesame. You can also make a dish out of any of these and offer her as prasadham.I used to make one using all these three ingredients. Later, I learnt there are ways to bring together ingredients. So, I'm not sure if the recipe is right and worth-sharing. So, I would suggest you create a traditional recipe from each ingredient. For a Navratri, I identified "nava-dhanyas" and on each day, a prasadham was made out of one. Some ideas are mine and some were passed on by friends. Now, its time you triggerred your imagination and made it big and beautiful for Maa Devi Bhairavi...

Namaskaram.
Is the same article posted in Tamil blog, if so please provide the link.

1 year 9 months ago

No difference, just any one you like most is enough.

Temples at Isha and Linga Bhairavi forms(Gudi or Lamp or Yantra) are consecrated in a very powerful way called prana prathistha. Such energy structures and forms aren't disturbed in any way, if a woman makes use of it during her menstrual cycle. On the other hand, other temples that aren't consecrated through prana prathistha, tend to lose their vibrancy. That's why, we were advised so by our elders. For more on this subject, you can read Sadhguru's book "Mystic's Musings".
Thus, for this Navratri Sadhana, this doesn't matter and you can certainly go on with the process without a break. So, have a happy Navratri and a wonderful Dussehra!!!

Thanks once again and pranams.

2 years 9 months ago

2 years 9 months ago

It's now available on Soundcloud.

3 years 9 months ago

Please suggest, if a women gets her menstrual cycle few days after starting the "sadhna", will it be okay for her to continue. Please post a detailed post as what to do and what not to do in such condition. Is she prohibited to visit temples during periods. There are many things that women are supposed not to do during such time. Expect a detailed post on this subject before 25th Sept.
Thank you!

1 year 9 months ago
