The Goddess & Higher Consciousness!
aum namah sivaya
Happy Navratri! Navratri is the celebrations and worship of Source
as the Goddess in Her three forms- Durga (Grace of enlightenment &
inspired realities), Laxmi (Grace of fulfillment through spiritual
and material abundance) & Saraswati (Grace of empowered thoughts &
higher consciousness). The nine days represents the completeness of
our own aspirations in every dimension leading us to be whole. The
Goddess Sakti, is the emanating power, the essence and the creative
manifestation of the Supreme Being, who is beyond opposites.
The Siddhar Sages declare that it is only when humanity worships the
Goddess that the collective consciousness will rise. Is humanity
mature enough to worship the Goddess? Collective consciousness
hinges as peace, love, oneness, non-violence and worship of each
other. When the realities of Goddess worship manifests in a society,
all women will be treated as equal, if not, more than equal and the
children raised by a happy mother will be more conscious. The
worship of the Goddess celebrates the sacredness of motherhood & the
feminine essence of nurturing, sustenance, fulfillment, creativity,
art & inspiration and the dynamics of change/time, the wisdom of
- Alight the lamp at least once a day to invoke the Goddess.
- Sacrifice an activity/habit that serves us no good, for the
Goddess. The essence of tapas is the surrender, burning of the past,
stepping into the new and the inner fire of awareness each breath.
- Pay gratitude to our tools, the computer, work space etc. It is
auspicious to start business/new venture/studies towards the end of
Navratri or just after.
- Envision women in our life as a Goddess incarnate.
- From the yogic perspective, be more conscious of the left breath,
the moon energy that represents the Goddess within ourselves.

Navratri Video by Nandhi:
The palm holds the visual form of our past, present and future.
Looking at our palms, both palms, held together creates an energy
vortex. To empower our human reality further, look at both your
palms and say the mantra- Aum Sakti Aum Sakti Aum Sakti Aum Aadi
Sakti Maha Sakti Para Sakti Aum Brahma Sakti Visnu Sakti Siva Sakti
Aum Nitya Sakti Kriya Sakti Nyana Sakti Aum Look at the fingers and
while reciting this mantra, invoke the specific energies- Goddess
Laxmi: Enable manifest abundant realities that evolve us through
material and spiritual wealth. Look below the fingers at the palms
and invoke Goddess Saraswati: Enable empowered thoughts from wisdom
to fulfill our divine purpose. Look at the whole hands and invoke
Goddess Durga: Enable us to destroy ignorance of karma, the mind and
limited circumstances and be enlightened. May the Goddess grace be
our each breath to the breathless One as in purpose, the knowing and
the ancient intent of wisdom.
Enlightenment Tip: Cosmic Laugh by Nandhi:
This is the 3rd Part: Enlightenment Tips
1st Part: Utilize the wedge between the Spirit & Mind to find the
2nd Part: Navigate the "I" to higher frequency energies
3rd Part: Let the "I" climb above thoughts and mind to see clearly.
When the time for thought as traffic begins, especially thoughts
that cause stress and worries, climb up through sound. Climbing up
above the mind by saying "Ha ha hahaa" sounds like laughing yoga and
it is. When we make sounds of laughter over a heavy thought, we
gradually are given the higher perspective of the problem that now
looks smaller than what we thought it to be.
When we are tranquil in thought we get the view from the peak of the
mountain of perspective and are able to see more clearly. We see
intuitively the moment the mind is brought to stillness. This
stillness can happen when the mind climbs above in the resonance of
"Aaaaa" and as in the laughter sound of "Ha Ha Hahaaaha!"
A rare darshan (vision) of Tirupati Balaji: Lord Vishnu of Abundant
Normally, to see (have the darshan) of Balaji (the name for Lord
Vishnu on Tirupati) takes several hours of standing in line and then,
after reaching the Deity, the pilgrim is not given more than 10
seconds due to the large numbers of the crowd. Tirupati Balaji is
the second richest temple in the world due to a reason. The reason
is He is a fulfiller of desires and when we think of a desire and
make a vow that upon the desire being fulfilled, you will come back
and make an offering such as your hair or anything else, the wish is
However, only a very few are given the ultimate darshan- the
abishekam darshan of Lord Balaji. Abishekam is a special worship
done on the Deity by offering the representation of the five
elements through water, milk, flowers etc. So, as you watch the
abishekam, be blesses by the Lord of Abundant Grace, Lord Vishnu:
Jai Guruve Thunai- Means: May wisdom as each thought be present/ May
the Inner Guru be awake/ May the Ancient Masters be Here Now

Shared sacred intent of Bhakti Fest:
By the grace of Amma, the Siddhars and the ancient intent, Nandhi
was given the honor to do the inaugural yagna (fire) and the closing
yagna for Bhakti Fest, the gathering to celebrate Source.
The inaugural day being Sept 09, we set alight the beautiful yagna
to commemorate the 09/11 victims through love by invoking Allah. We
intensified the inner fire through our Siddhi Ganapathy shrine
participative pujas (Amma Sanctuary booth) with our lamp lit 24/7.
The closing ceremony was the celebration of the awake grace of joy
shifted from the external to the internal fire. We invoked Allah and
declared each conscious being celebrating Bhakti Fest as a prophet
of peace and love. Yes, we are the messengers of Oneness- the
Oneness beyond bounds of the little minds of ignorance. We are the
Oneness that is wisdom and the perfect intellect in the Now.
We now unfold the Navratri celebrations honoring Goddess Durga who
helps destroy ignorance that shackles women & societies through the
opium of religion and obsolete beliefs that is contradictory to
non-violence and peace.
