2018 Spring (Chaitra) Navratri Festival

Nawan Nagar, March 2018

The spring Navratri festival, dedicated to Goddess Durga, a form of the Divine Mother, was observed at the Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra Nawan Nagar ashram in India, from March 18 to March 24. In a large tent, professional singers performed devotional songs every evening in praise of the Divine as the people clapped and sang along in the presence of Sant Baljit Singh Ji. 

Another large tent was set up to provide free medical consultancy and medicine to people in need, while a third large tent offered free food and free accommodation.

Many traveled from afar to Nawan Nagar to celebrate the Navratri festival. Those living in the surrounding villages and cities took advantage of the special opportunity to attend the programs each evening.

The crowd clapped in time to the music, enjoying the devotional songs.

As the celebration drew to a close, Sant Baljit Singh Ji greeted the cheering people.

Everyone is searching for happiness, because God created us with that inclination. He designed us so that we would want to find companionship, happiness, and peace. All our lives we make every effort to find peace and happiness, but our search is in the wrong direction. We try to find peace and happiness in the material world, but permanent peace and happiness can only be found in the spiritual world.

Sant Baljit Singh Ji
