The Navaratra Festival daily schedule runs from 5:30am - 8:30pm so there's opportunity to take part in either some or all of the daily program.
The Devi temple activities occur in the morning and evening sessions. The order of events for the Devi temple is outlined in the printable poster below.
The afternoon sessions can be spent on rest, seva activities (contribution of housekeeping chores), walks on the beach or to attend the yoga class, the coffee shop or the gift shop. The Brahmin priest is also available in the afternoon to conduct ‘private Poojas’; a one-on-one ceremony to honour a particular aspect of the Devi for a special purpose in your own life.
Meals are served in the dining hall with breakfast at 7:30, lunch at 12:30 (1:30 on Saturday 13th) and dinner at 5:30 (6pm on April 5th).
