Wishes you all A Very Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

You are the Christmas tree. The Christmas tree is pointing upwards and its branches grow on all sides. At the time of year when no tree bears anything, it has many gifts to offer. And it is green throughout the year. A Christmas tree bears the gifts and the lights not for itself. All the gifts you are carrying in your life are for others. Anyone who comes to you, you offer them your gifts.

Navratri 2013 with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

“Navratri represents how the negativity can be conquered by the inherent positive qualities in an individual so that one emerges as a Divine being.”
- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Navratri 2013 with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Navratri 2013 with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

‘Nava’ means ‘nine’ and ‘ratri’ is made up of ‘ra’ which also means ‘night’ and ‘tri’ meaning the three aspects of our life – body, mind and soul. There are three types of botherations or problems that may affect a person – physical, mental and spiritual. That which gives you relief from all these difficulties is ‘ratri’. ‘Ratri’ or night relieves you of misery and brings comfort. The night relaxes everybody; whether happy, unhappy or miserable, everybody goes to sleep. The nine-day period of Navratri is marked by a series of Yagna and Homas. These Yagnas nullify all the misery, sorrow and pain in the world. Each day of this nine-day period has special implications and yagnas and homas are performed accordingly. In life, there are positive and negative qualities that affect us.

The Art of Living family invites you to be a part of the pujas and homas which will be performed in the divine presence of H.H. Sri Si Ravishankar at the auspicious time of Navratri.

Homa
Navratri is traditionally celebrated in honor of Devi, the Divine Mother. The Divine Mother is a form of energy, a manifestation of the Divine itself. Therefore, sometimes, the form taken by this Divine may be that of Ganesha, Chandi (Devi), Vishnu or Shiva. Each day of Navratri we honor specific qualities of divinity with different homas and with different intentions.

Sri Maha Ganapati Homa:
This homa is offered to that aspect of divinity which removes all obstacles to our growth and success. It is for clearing all impediments and attracting auspiciousness in our lives. Ganapati Homa is done before the start of any new project or venture.

Navgraha Homa:
Everything in creation is connected, and the all the various spheres in the universe mutually affect each other. Everything influences everything else. This homa is done to honor these influences; to reduce negative influences that enter our lives; and to increase positive influences.

Sri Maha Rudra Homa:
We invite all auspiciousness into our lives. This is one of the most ancient homas from the text of the Vedas. It is done to transform stagnancy and for overall prosperity, health, happiness, success and removal of obstructions. It is offered to the one who removes misery.

Sri Maha Sudarshan Homa:
This homa is offered to the sustainer of life, which blesses us with the right vision. It is to remove ignorance and usher in a new life overflowing with knowledge. It is especially for removing confusion and mental blocks and giving clarity. Chanting of Vishnu Sahasranama: Sahasranaam literally means “the thousand names”. This chanting is done for bringing success in life. It is offered to honor the sustaining energy in creation.

Sri Nava Chandi Homa:
The Chandi Homa marks the pinnacle of all the Navratri homas. It is performed to remove negative tendencies and obstacles to growth, both in ourselves and in the environment. Its purpose is also to increase strength, vigor and confidence. It is offered to that quality of Divinity that protects and us and nurtures creativity.

Rishi Homa:
This homa is done in gratitude to all the enlightened masters. It honors all the seers and sages of the past, present and future.
