Emilio Bettaglio will conduct a Navaratri havan at The Meditation Center on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. This is the first day of the sacred nine days dedicated to the nine aspects of the Divine Mother.
Please arrive around 6:00pm for a brief introduction to the observance of Navaratri. The havan will begin at 6:30pm. Please RSVP by Monday, October 8th. We need a participant count so that we have sufficient sangeri (spice mixture offering) for all who attend. Please bring a prasad of fruit or sweets to share with others after the fire ceremony. If it is raining outside we will do a water ceremony inside in the meditation room on the first floor, The Hall of The Tradition.
