Nine Nights in Celebration of the Divine Mother
Come join in Nine Nights of worship to God in the form of the Divine Mother at one of the most inspirational times of the year.
All pujas will begin 7:30PM; 10th morning puja begins at 6AM.
Each night for these nine nights there will be puja (traditional Vedic worship ritual) and we will read and chant nightly from the Devi Mahatmyam, the scripture describing the story and feats of the Divine Mother.
A final puja on the morning of the tenth day represents the victory of the Goddess over the asuras (demons or negative qualities).
Donations of flowers and prasad (sweet foods) are welcome.
