Navaratri – Day 3

Navaratri – Day 3
————————————————————————–
The third day of Navaratri was spent in Glen Anil ashram which is the HQ for all centres in SA. It was Saturday, the 27th Sept. 2014. Every Saturday our weekly satsang is scheduled and hence joining with Navaratri celebration a whole lot of devotees were able to be present at the Ramakrishna Temple. Outside our temple I saw this fully blown red hibiscus which is very dear to Divine Mother.

On returning from PMB, I found the temple gracefully decorated by our devotees. The background poster that depicts Mother Durga on a grand tiger with Kali, Lakshmi and Saraswati on the sides, with of course our Holy Mother, had been drawn up on the wall.

My Discourse on this day though centring round Mother Kali, because it was the third day of navaratri, went in detail why Navaratri is a nine-night-festival. The important place of tri-guna viz., sattwa, rajas and tamas in our life and how the concepts associated with Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati represent these three gunas.
