Vasant Navratri 2016


Springtime Celebration for the Mother Goddess


The Sanskrit word Navratri literally means “nine nights.” Navratri is the nine nights of remembering, celebrating, and thanking the female aspect of the divine. The concept of the Goddess is intriguing, as nothing can happen without her presence. These nine special days of the Mother Goddess are celebrated in each solstice. Navratri is celebrated in both the Autumn and Spring, when nature undergoes important seasonal changes. Vasant Navratri is celebrated during the summer solstice, in the month of Chaitra (March – April).

The Sanskrit word Vasanta means “Spring.” Therefore, the 9 days of worship and devotion during the Spring season is called Vasant Navratri.

It is when nature erupts with the joyful, creative, enthusiastic energy of the divine, beaming with life, and spreads vibrant colors all around. This is the time when you can easily access the creative feminine energy of the divine to bring positive transformations in your life.

Vasant Navratri is the time for purification of thoughts through reflection and deliberation. This is the time for imprinting our grey matter with the right perceptions, beauty, and abundance.

Vasant Navratri 2016: Renew Your Energies, Rewire Your Brain

Nava also means “new” or “to renew.” These nine nights are the prime energy times for renewing our intellectual, emotional, and spiritual energies. It’s one of the rare best times providing nine nights of opportunity to rewire our brain with logical as well as creative dendrites.

Vasant Navratri falls from April 8th to the 16th, and at AstroVed, this year it is a celebration dedicated to the Goddess of Learning.
