Navratri Online Timing Survey: 10pm EST - 2009


Jai Shri Mataji,

Thank you for your heartfelt responses and comments. The survey for Navratri online timings is complete and it seems like we will be going with:

10pm Eastern / 7pm Pacific Time - Starting Saturday Sept 19th

Important: Unlike last year, this year, the online pujas will be password protected. What do you need to do? You will need to sign up for the "Online Puja Room" created for this Navratri and other online pujas we may do in the future. You will need to answer some questions before you are able to access the online puja room.

Question: Where will the online meditations be?
The meditations will be at the online puja room which you can access once your membership is approved. The pujas will not be openly webcasted at like last year.

Thanks for this!
Shri Mataji has previously mentioned about having a candle burning in the room where you sleep during the 9 days of Navaratri.
