ONLINE Navaratri Festival – Saraswati Puja 3

Sunday, October 25, 2020 @ 8:00 PM 9:30 PM

 

VIA ZOOM – Participants will receive a Zoom link the evening before the puja.

Saraswati is the goddess of creation—through knowledge, music, art, speech, wisdom, and learning. The earliest known mention of Saraswati as a goddess is in the Rig Veda.

This is the ninth night of an extremely auspicious nine-night festival in Her honor. A puja is being celebrated each night at the Los Angeles Center: three for Durga, three for Lakshmi and three for Saraswati.

To make it the best experience possible, we invite you to:
• bring the energy of the Ashram to your home, by setting up a simple altar, if you don’t already have one.
• prepare prasad for each puja you attend. We will share recipes via email on request.
• offer flower petals with us.
• email us a specific intention you would like included as we make the sankalpa for each puja.
• send photos of your instruments of karma (by mail or email) in advance to be blessed at the final puja, on Vijay Dasami.
