A Brief Idea to all those attending for the first time or otherwise.

1.Its nice, to dress traditionally on festive occasions πŸ™‚

During the nine days of Navratri there is a custom of wearing different colour dress – Sarees (Sari) and Churidhar – mainly in Gujarat and Maharashtra. Information on what are the Navratri 2011 colours usually appears a couple of days before in local Gujarati and Marathi newspapers. This is the latest information regarding the nine colors of Navratri in 2011.

The nine Navratri colors for 2011 are:
Pratipada – September 28, 2011 (Wednesday) – Blue
Dwitiya/Tritiya – September 29 (Thursday) – Yellow
Chaturthi – September 30 (Friday) – Green
Panchami – October 1 (Saturday) – Grey
Sashti – October 2 (Sunday) – Orange
Saptami – October 3 (Monday) – White
Ashtami – October 4 (Tuesday) – Red
Navami – October 5 (Wednesday) – Purple
Vijayadasami – October 6 (Thursday) – Pink

2. When you enter the ground,there would be a stage right ahead and a small area will be specially hosting the Puja place with Kalash πŸ™‚
the Puja place is a very pristine area and only Pandits are allowed to be in that area.Please dont move on to the Puja place area. You may worship from a distance.

3.Usually just ahead of the stage is the sitting arrangements of the people who are in Sankalpas πŸ™‚
Make sure you dont happen to sit there or you would have to move back.

4.Please avoid sitting in middle, incase you take frequent breaks. Toilets are made available.

5.Please carry back rest, if you have back problem or otherwise ,since Pujas are for longer duration.

6.It would be nice, to meditate or sit quiet and not chit chat/sleep while the Pujas and Homas and the chantings are going on and maintain the sanctity of the place.

7.Please put your phone on silent mode and avoid talking while the Pujas are going on, it might disturb your neighbour.

8.In case of small kids, please do make sure they are taken care of well in the venue.

9.For aged people, some chairs would be kept. In case its not, check with the help of volunteers to have the sitting arrangements made proper for them.

10.It would be nice, to carry a bottle of water. ( Based on the past year’s feedback. Water is available but not free,you will have to buy the bottles.)

11.Listening to the mantras chanted during the pujas and the homas is more important.So make sure you sit comfortably, any ways you wont figure much things out of what the Pandits are doing. As Swami Sadyojathah said last year that if you dont happen to meditate and listen to the mantras.Just practise to bring your mind again and again to the mantras. Mantras have a healing and rejuvenating effect on the mind body and soul.

12.Please make sure you eat the Prasadams after the Puja, the effect of Puja is considered to be complete after Prasadam.

13.Though the venue is close to the station, it would be nice to chalk down the transport for your coming and going back for a hassle free time of yours.
Considering the mumbai traffic, please make sure you leave early!

14.Please dont complain and co-operate with the volunteers and lend help to make this event at the best.

Do come in large numbers and make this event grand πŸ™‚
Your participation is valuable πŸ™‚
Wish you all a Refreshing Navratri πŸ™‚
