Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Global Sahaja Sangha,
Jai Shri Mataji!
The latest information is that in Europe the first night of Navratri is tonight as in Tuesday.
According to the Shalivahana calendar, all countries to the west of Gujarat and Rajisthan in India should celebrate Navratri today. Hence Europe and USA etc.
For all countries to the East of those Indian states such as Japan for example the first Night of Navratri is tomorrow I.e. Wednesday. The Shalivahana calendar is the most accurate for such matters. This was Shri Mataji's advice.
The timings have been worked out according to the first day of the new phase of the moon and its relationship to the time of the sunrise.
The first day of the new phase of the moon in Cabella was at 5.46 am today. In Cabella the first Night of Navratri is tonight. This applies to Europe and the USA etc. also.
We hope this clarifies matters. A little late but better late than not at all. We are thankful to uncle Nalgirkar for once again providing guidance and clarification on this issue.

“…What can Sahaja Yogis do? What can they work it out to blast this horrible ways of human life? It’s possible with the Power of Love – you can manage! But we must develop that power in our hearts. Think of it! It’s a big lesson now for all of us, to see for ourselves – are we alright? Or we go on hating others? What is the function of our mind is to hate or to love? And this love, if it enlightens you, you will be amazed; you will be such a big force for Me. I cannot fight the whole thing alone. I have to have people who really develop their love – and nothing else! That is one of the challenges now for all of us, for all the Sahaja Yogis all over the world. It’s not only the fight between believers and non-believers, not only the fight between Sahaja Yogis and non-Sahaja Yogis, but this is a fight where we are all one and we are going to fight it out. At every stage we have to be much more subtler.”
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Navaratri puja, Greece, 21st October 2001.
