Navratri is almost here. As Ma and Bapuji have said, “take advantage of the energy of those days. Don’t miss that opportunity; make sure you do something. As the scriptures state, and as Guruji used to say, “The eternal moment is very significant in a spiritual practice.” You might sit for five minutes, but those five minutes must be such that your communication with God is complete and thorough with nothing to distract you.” The following series of articles are collected here to support you during these auspicious days.
