Special Yagya for Vasanta Navaratris (the Nine Nights of Spring) March 16th-24th, 2010
Sri Vasanta Lakshmi Havana Purvaka Nava Chandi Yagya at Vijayawada in India (The home of Mother Divine)
Vasanta Navaratris (the nine nights of spring) fall in the Vedic month of Chaitra (around Spring). The Divine Mother or the Supreme Shakti (Power) in one of her immanent forms manifests through the Nature, as flowers blossom and trees turn green in spring. As the Mother Earth, She provides vegetation and nourishment to everyone. The reverence for the earth spares us catastrophes such as earthquakes, floods and tsunamis.
The Divine Mother’s transcendent power showers prosperity and joy to Her devotees who pray, perform pujas offer prayers (the rituals of abhishekam or the bathing ceremony and homa of the fire ceremony). During Vasanta Navaratris, known as Mahalakshmi (The great Goddess of wealth), She is offered lotus flowers:
“Padmapriye Padmini Padmahaste Padmalaye . .” (the one who resides in and loves lotus flowers). According to the scripture Mantra Maharnava, the Lakshmi homas (the fire ceremony with lotus flowers) offered with love, faith and devotion to the Divine Mother during the holy Vasant Navaratris is even more propitious. The Great Goddess showers prosperity to all her devotees (success in business, Progress in all parts of life, better financial opportunities etc.).
Benefits of praying to the God during this auspicious time:
For every event to attain success, it is essential that the event must begin at right time for it develop and grow successfully. Nature reflects this example with the onset of spring, resulting in the growth and re-growth of all grass, plants, trees, flowers, etc. Similarly for all our mental (Manasika), spiritual (Adhyatmika), material (Lokaika) prosperity and success, it is important that we initiate things or events during the sacred time of Navarathri. This is just like how seedlings grow quickly and well during the spring, with right amount of sunlight, soil and water. Our prayers during this auspicious time of Vasanth Navarathri should result in yielding mental peace and good health, financial growth and prosperity, victory over obstacles and success in all events, and such many other benefits.
In this day and age of natural calamities and financial uncertainties, our organization, Vydic Yagnya Center, will be performing special poojas (the rituals of Abhishekam – the holy bathing ceremonies to the Deities) and Homas (the fire ceremonies with the offerings of lotus flowers) during the Vasant Navaratris – the Nine Sacred Nights of Spring.
