Navarathri Poojas and Vidyarambham

Navaratri is a synchrony of two words – “nava” meaning nine and “ratri” meaning night. The festival of Navaratri spreads over 9 nights and 10 days and we honor and worship the omnipresent energy in a Devi/Divine Mother format.

At our Guruvaryurappan Temple of Brampton [GTOB], Canada Navarathri starts on Sunday, October 15th, and ends on Monday, October 23rd – “Vidyarambham day”.
