"Children, Navaratri is an occasion for worshiping Parashakti, the Almighty Goddess, who is the cause of the universe. The universe is the visible manifestation of Devi. She pervades all forms. Supreme devotion is seeing, loving, serving and worshiping everything as the Universal Mother. We need to awaken the right knowledge from within. We need to gain scriptural knowledge and practice those teachings in our life. May Navaratri awaken this attitude in all my children."
~Amma (Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi)
