There are 4 Navaratris each year [also known as the 9 days/nights of Mother Divine]. Each Navaratri has a particular theme aside from the general context of the enlivenment of Shakti or Nature's organizing power. This coming Navaratri runs July 12 - 19. It culminates in Guru Purnimah - day of the Guru or full moon of Guru Dev on July 25.

Guru Purnimah is the day when the Guru's influence is most lively and accessible. Therefore the July Navaratri, because it culminates in Guru Purnima, is one of the most auspicious periods in which to cultivate the influence of Guru in our life. This means everything good: enlightenment, true happiness, wisdom, true love, devotion, loyalty, life partner, family & children, and life lived in accord with natural law: dharma & destiny. In spiritual life, Guru connects us with God, so in that respect he/she is the bringer of life's bounties. In whatever area God's grace touches our life - this is most often due to the influence of Guru.
Therefore, this July Navaratri is one of the best times to perform yagya to enhance and strengthen these qualities in our life.

New Temple Kali Ghat Calcutta- Grand temple of Maha Kali
One of 51 Shakthi Peeths or primary seats of Mother Divine
For this Guru Purnimah Navaratri, along with our regular Laksmi & Saraswathi temples, we transport pandits to Kali Ghat near Calcutta: probably the most renown and powerful Kali temple in the whole of India. I recently spent 7 days there and was profoundly impressed by the consistent quality and richness of experience. With transcendence so lively and accessible, yagyas performed here deliver excellent results.

Kali is depicted wearing a garland of human heads. This illustrates here role as bestower of liberation or enlightenment by destroying the ego. The head contains the sense organs and is thereby synonymous with limited self concept or ego. By severing the head with the sword of self knowledge Kali liberates the mind. The awareness expands and is freed from boundaries and self imposed limitations. Her darshan or mode of influence is experienced in the heart and the fullness of awareness. It is a direct experience. It touches us deep inside at the most fundamental level of awareness; it is experiential not conceptual. She is also depicted as standing on or over her consort the sleeping Shiva [the absolute]. She represents the ground state or absolute made lively. In contrast with the sleeping Shiva, Kali arrests the mind. She is proactive and forcibly takes the mind to the absolute. We feel her at the core at of our being.
Navaratri/9 nights of Mother Divine - General Context
Durga slaying Mahishaasura the buffalo demon
Aside from the specific theme of Guru Purnimah, all 4 Navaratri's throughout the year share the following characteristics: [nava = 9, ratri = night] or 9 nights of mother divine. They are a time of cleansing and purification and evolution throughout nature. During these periods, the tide of Sattva or coherence or wholeness of life rises to purge the fragmented, imperfect values of natural law. In vedic mythology, Navaratri is depicted as the time when Shakti [the quintessential power of the universe], champion of the gods, is victorious over the demons. It is a time for light to triumph over darkness.

Harnessing nature's momentum through yagya
Navaratri is also known as 'Durga Puja': 9 day festival celebrating Durga: the Divine Mother -the wholeness or collectedness of God's feminine aspect.
Yagyas are traditionally performed during the 9 days to harness the momentum of this highly auspicious window of opportunity. Navaratri or Durga puja yagyas serve to direct this lively flow of nature's intelligence into our daily life in order to safe guard and enhance our progress & evolution and also to achieve specific goals.

I have had the good fortune to verify the accuracy of this jyotish (vedic astrology) and the efficacy of the yagyas that have been arranged in my own life. I am simply left with a wonderment at the workings of the universe and an overwhelming gratitude for his help.

Just wanted to let you know how this Maha Navaratri is going for me. You are welcome to use any of this for a testimonial. Thank you so much, I feel I am being awakened from a very long coma... I feel I have been brought back to life, back to my purpose,... and I am so grateful to you. Bless you, bless you, bless you for facilitating these divine yagyas. I am on fire!

...and yes for the Laksmi/Saraswathi (as there was an almighty shift towards the positive)

It was probably the strongest influence I have ever felt in the performance of a yagya. Meaning, I felt immediately when it began every day... Meditations were profound with deep transcending.. a whole new level of experience.

Today K. had a scan showing that Cancer has not grown for a year. So that is great news for us, especially when the radiation professor told him to say his goodbyes and expect very little time beyond last November.

Then when he suddenly had all that pain over Christmas I thought well this is it. Then the yagya you did for him seemed to take away the pain. That pain was considered to be the adhesions which 'suddenly' one week after the yagya resolved in one day...and I have been meditating very regularly since June last year: night and morning

Thought you might like to know that J's new show (which we had the yagya done for in July) has consistently been number one for the last couple of months. Everyone agrees it is punching about its weight. Very cool.
All the best

Things are now much calmer. But it certainly has been a rocky few months.
We did sell the house ... now after all that has happened in the world - the stock market collapse etc - I feel that we were very fortunate, the financial context is much clearer now.
All is well.

On the cosmic scale - all is as you predicted. The emotional upheavals have been unrelenting but I felt very supported all along the way - an island of calmness in the midst of the storm.
So in brief, it's all on track - all is as it should be. So thanks again.
Your advice was wonderful and the yagyas worked.

...Well only you could believe that on day one of the yagya his solicitor wrote to us offering to settle (after 4 years).
This week our accountants have cut a deal with the other side which finalizes the matter. We are now in the process of getting the legal paper work finalized (which has happened without a glitch). Remarkable.

This is the conclusion to all of the dramas which began 4 years ago. This is the outcome we have wanted. The paper work has been finalized. So thank you and for your insights into how best to complete this assignment. Also please
thank the Pundits involved.
Remarkable shift.

"What a yagya. I think my whole physiology is changing... I think this must be the best yagya ever...The impacts keep on coming. I can feel the pundits coming and going. It is amazing...Can you book me a place for next year?"

On the days of the yagyas, I devoted myself to saadhana (spiritual practice)- actually I tried to "do" saadhana but could "do" nothing except lie in the saadhana room in a semi-swoon, feeling like I was being "done". The energy was so powerful I was totally unable to function, so I surrendered to it. I suppose this is normal.
I hope you are well and everything is shining in your world.

...So, I have had some good things to report since the yagya, I have been given a new position at last. It's a promotion with pay increase but the best part is I am back in a department I started from. Only now I'm the manager. The entrance has a sunny aspect, the floor is about to undergo refurbishment so will end up being fabulous ,sleek and contemporary.
The overall outcome for me personally is like coming home with more power. It is also challenging and exciting as it is a much more complex floor. There is less day to day drama and stress and it is more interesting.
At the same time it is not nearly as physically demanding but has more scope to use my creative visual skills. I feel happier at work than I have for ages. While I'm inspired looking forward to new projects, the situation is more balanced.
So on all levels I am very happy about the changes. Thank you and please thank the pundits for me
