Listening to Tripura Rahasya at @BangaloreAshram during #Navratri. Beautiful. But very jarring to hear Shiva translated as “God” into English.

The English-Abrahamic god is a petty jealous entity. Let’s not distort Shiva, universal consciousness. Shiva is Shiva. @ArtofLiving
Also do not assume this will make it more accessible to Westerners. It won’t. Many look to Hindu wisdom escape the “god” delusions. This is only confusing to people does not speak to the Real—to Sat Chit Ananda.
Coming from a respected Western Acharya. Please course correct AOL.

Among the festivals of Hindus, Navratri is endowed with a great significance.
Navratri or 9 nights, is the festival of 9 holy nights which celebrates the victory of Goddess Shakti over evil. The days fall on the 9 auspicious days as per lunar calendar of Hinduism.
The festival is celebrated with an ardent fervour which is rare on any other festival.
The 9day festival culminates on the 10th day, which is the day of victory. It also marks the symbolic journey from humanness to divinity thereby reminding people of the real goal of human life.
Chief deity adorned on these days is the feminine principle of the divinity. Therefore all forms of Maa Goddesses are heralded, worshiped and adorned on these days. Called as Shakti, the female energy represents the universe, while Shiva represents the consciousness or soul.

Fasting or Langhana is an important treatment as per #Ayurveda . It increases #Pitta and #Vata hence best to avoid by people of these prkrti
Langhana is indicated for those who hv #kapha dosha predominance, who dont workout, suffer with indigestion & obesity. #Ayurveda #Navratri
