What Name should we chant during Navratri?
Navratri begins on Ashwin Shukla 1 (28 September 2011) on this year. According to one school of thought, Sri Mahakali (who has a tama pre-dominant temperament) is worshipped on the first 3 days of Navratri, to reduce the tama component in ourselves. The next 3 days, to enhance the raja component in ourselves, Sri Mahalakshmi (who has a raja pre-dominant temperament) is worshipped and on the last 3 days, to intensify the spiritual practice, Mahasaraswati (who has a Sattva pre-dominant temperament) is worshipped. Chant the Names of these Deities during these days. To learn more, obtain your copy of the Holy text ‘Shakti’, published by Sanatan Sanstha from the Sanatan centre nearest to you.
