2010 Saraswathi Puja Navaratri yagya celebration: January 16 - 24
Maha Kali, Maha Laksmi & Maha Saraswathi. 24 Pandits performing yagya in 3 celebrated temples for 9 days:
Kali Math Kali Monastery in Himalayas. Mansa Devi Laksmi temple in Haridwar, Uttaranchal. Sarada Devi Saraswathi temple in Maihar, Madhya Pradesh

In Front of Saraswathi Temple Madhya Pradesh (Sarada Maihar)

There are 4 Navaratris each year [also known as the 9 days/nights of Mother Divine]. The coming Navaratri is dedicated to Maha Saraswati - the aspect of Divine Mother governing knowledge, intelligence, creativity & profession/career. Saraswati Puja - the Grand Day of Maha Saraswati happens on the 5th day of the festival: 20 January 2010.
Typically pilgrims begin to queue from around 3:30 am. It can be nearly midday before they reach the temple.

Maha Saraswathi embodies the “Gyana Akasha” or all pervading knowledge or knowingness. She presides over all expressions of knowledge: pure and applied. She is worshipped by those seeking the direct experience of the pure knowledge of Enlightenment. She also governs the arts, music, speech, writing & all aspects of learning and creative endeavor. Traditionally, she is worshipped or invoked by those seeking success in artistic endeavor, study, sciences & research and career or profession.

When pleased, Saraswathi bestows success in one’s career, studies, creative endeavors, and saadhana (spiritual practice)

History of new approach: performing the yagyas inside celebrated temples


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 Ganesh, 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!

Hi Ganesh
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

Dear Ganesh
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.

Ganesh 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

Regarding this latest yagya, t
he results were immediate, ongoing, astounding and dramatic. Obstacles and threats to the well being of all my family members seemed to be removed overnight and have continued to dissipate throughout succeeding days & weeks.

Navaratri/9 nights of Mother Divine
Goddess Durga slaying Mahishaasura the buffalo demon
Navaratri [nava = 9 ratri = night] or 9 nights of mother divine is a time of cleansing and purification and evolution throughout nature. It is a time when the tide of Sattva or coherence or wholeness of life rises to purge the fragmented, imperfect values of natural law. In vedic mythology it is represented 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.
