Ashvina shuddha prathamA dashamI paryanta

Title could be sharannavaratri puuja, or Devi puuja in Navaraatri
which falls in the month of ashwiija shuddha day 01 thru day 10 both
inclusive. The 10th day is called vijaya dashami, which is auspecious
for starting any new venture, starting alphabets for children, learning
new languages, music, or for developing new(improved) relationship with
your husband or wife or children or office colleagues. 

This puja falls on the ist day of the month of aashwiija - generally Oct -
this time on Sep 21, 1998 - from ist day till 10th day, being celebrated
as navaraatri and the tenth day as vijaya dashami. 

According to legend, Durga sat on the tip of a needle for nine
days, doing a severe penance to destroy the evil Asura Mahisha. On the 
first three days, she meditated as Herself, the next three days as 
Mahalakshmi and the last three days as Sarasvati. This signifies 
progression from tamsik, to rajasik to satvik and eventually obtaining 
liberation. The tenth day in october is called vijayadasami to signify 
the victory on the day of dasami.

Navaratri is celebrated four times a year. They are Ashada Navaratri, 
the Sharada Navaratri, the Maha Navaratri and the Vasantha Navaratri. 
Of these, the Sharada Navaratri of the month of Puratashi and
the Vasantha Navaratri of the Vasantha kala are very important. If you
refer to the agni purana, then it is said that the Puratashi and Panguni
(in Tamil months) i.e. Asvin and Chaitra are like the two jaws of 
Lord Yama. If one wants to escape the mouth of Yama, then one should 
celebrate Navaratri on these two occassions. A similar analogy is presented in the
devi bhagavatam. Devi bhagavatam also talks in detail on how one should
observe fasts, and how one should meditate/work on these days. 

It is a long tradition that one reads the devi-bhagavatam or the devi
mahatmyam (durga saptasati, 700 verses on Durga) during this period. 
Devi bhagavatam notes that Rama meditated and fasted for nine days after Sita
was kidnapped by Ravana. There are numerous such incidents on how 
people's wishes were granted. This year, Navaratri is from September 21 to October 1. 
You can find much more details in devi bhagavatam.

Previous Night, think of the Goddess and mentally decide to perform puujaa the next day. 
This is the sankalpa. Next day early morning keep the same thoughts of worshipping the 
Goddess and take a head-bath (if possible an oil-bath). Have some soothing Indian Music 
(Shehnai or sa.ntuur or sitaar or naadasvaram - preferably any instrumental) going 
on in the background till the puujaa begins. The music should be pleasing (not too loud) 
for creating a serene mood. (Of course people should be internally peaceful also!) 

Wash Kalasha and fill it with clean water upto 3/4 of it. Cover and 
place it near the altar. Observe Fast (if possible). Decorate the front door, 
altar and the place near the altar. Invite your relatives, friends (who have bhakti 
in the Goddess). Keep all the things for puujaa ready, near the altar.

Duration - start to aaratii - 2 hours

54 AratI 
Normally, the arati is done just after 
we chant the slokas for mahaa niraajana and 
karpura deepa. All the devotees sing the arati 
bhajan, while one by one each person comes 
and gives arati. The arati plate normally has 
5 small diyas (with cotton balls dipped in oil 
and with a fine tiri -end). Some kumukum and 
flowers should also be kept in the plate. The 
arati is done at the puja altar, accompanied by 
the ghanta (bell) and once everyone completes 
the arati, we take it to the regular altar 
(assuming these are different), show it there, 
come back and offer arati to the bell. We also 
offer kumkum and flowers to the bell, prostrate 
and then offer the arati to the devotees.

Here, all pujas are attended by minimum 40 to 
max 100+. So we have one or 2 aratis depending 
on the size of the crowd. Since this takes a lot 
of time, while the devotees offer the arati, the 
people who are doing the puja complete all other 
slokas upto the mantra pushpam. Once the arati is 
over we chant the mantra pushpam after which 
everybody offers akshata or flowers. 

After the visarjana puja, we offer a karpura arati 
in a similar fashion.
