Navratri literally means 'Nine Nights'. These days are
astrologically very powerful for Spiritual upliftment.
During these days and nights, prayers are offered to Mother, who is
the Manifestation of the Absolute Energy that pervades the Universe.
SVBF Canada also celebrated Navaratri in a very grand manner with Devi Sharadamba being decorated in ten forms and special poojas, homas and abhishekams hed during this period.
A Mahabhisheka to Sharadamba was performed on the day-before-Navaratri (i.e. on No-moon-day of the month of Bhaadrapada). Devi was decorated with Jagatprasutika Alankaara on that day followed by nine different alankaras on the nine nights of Navaratri.
Pictures of the alankarams for Devi Sharadamba taken during the 10 day event are published below for our devotees viewing pleasure. Thanks to Sharada Bhat, Param Bhat and Jayanthi Raman for the puctures. Devotees are encouraged to send and share their pictures taken during the Navaratri for the benefit of our visitors.
