Navratri Sadhana: Deepening Your Spiritual Journey

Navratri Meditation: Deepening Your Spiritual Journey

Dear meditators,

As Navratri, the auspicious festival dedicated to the mother goddess, begins today, it is the perfect time to engage in spiritual practices and seek the blessings of the divine mother to deepen your spiritual journey. His Holiness Swami Advaitananda Giri will be coming online to guide you further. Here’s a simple guide to Navratri sadhana:

Setting Intentions

Begin by setting clear intentions for your sadhana during these nine days. Reflect on what you wish to achieve spiritually and seek mantras accordingly from His Holiness.

Daily Prayers

Perform daily prayers to the mother goddess. Offer flowers, incense, and your prayers with devotion. Recite the prayers that resonate with you.


Consider fasting during Navratri, either partially or completely. Fasting purifies the body and mind, allowing for deeper spiritual experiences. It also serves as a bridge between two seasons (ritu sandhi).


Dedicate time each day to meditation. Connect with the energy of the mother goddess within yourself. Visualize her presence and feel her divine grace flowing through you.


Chant mantras from your tradition. A typical sequencing would be as follows:

  • Guru Mantra (108 times)
  • Isth Devata Mantra (108 times)
  • Ganesha Mantra or Bhairav Mantra – any one (108 times)
  • Shiva Mantra (108 times)
  • Divine Mother Mantra (as much as you can)

Chanting mantras such as ‘Om Dum Durgayei Namaha’ or ‘Om Aim Hreem Kleem Chamundayei Vichche’ can amplify your sadhana and invoke the blessings of the goddess.

Seva (Service)

Engage in acts of seva or selfless service during Navratri. Helping others and spreading kindness aligns you with the spirit of the festival.


Take time to reflect on your spiritual journey and the lessons you’ve learned during Navratri. Journaling can be a powerful tool for self-reflection.

Remember, Navratri is a time of spiritual renewal and inner transformation. May your sadhana be filled with devotion, peace, and divine blessings.

Wishing you a blessed Navratri!

With kind regards,

His Holiness Swami Advaitananda Giri
