Just like every year, during this Yuva Kranti Varsh (Year of Youth Revolution) also, everyone will undertake Gayatri Anushthan. But remember, just like every year, this Navaratri also should not just pass by without touching our inner self, without enhancing our enthusiasm and joy, without making us firm, strong and disciplined. It is our humble request to all that they should participate in this Navaratri Anushthan with full devotion, and acquire divine energy.
As a result of Navaratri Anushthan, divine energy pours down like torrential rain in the inner consciousness of the Sadhak. However, it should be clearly understood - why are we doing this Anushthan? What is the purpose of Sadhana? During this Anushthan, take a pledge that we will to adopt the principles of "Hum Badlenge-Yug Badlega" (When we transform ourselves, the Era will transform for the better) in our lives. May we be able to acquire so much energy from this Anushthan that it will not just transform our personality, but at the same time it may also weaken the effect of demonic forces spread in the entire environment. Since we are a part of the society, therefore, our Sadhana must also be utilized for the progress and development of the society.
During the Anushthan, chant 24000 Gayatri Mantra, which is a universal and supreme mantra. Food must be pious. If cereals (anna) have to be taken in food then this can be done once during the day, and fruits etc. can be eaten at the other time. During the time of intense Sadhana, Sadhak must choose the food as per his/ her capability and physical condition. The piousness of food must always be maintained. Some activities for self-restraint and tapa include control on thoughts, speaking less, speaking good things, control on senses, not eating unhealthy food, sleeping on the floor or hard bed, neither speaking ill about anyone nor listening to the same, not having lustful vision, chanting Gayatri Mantra in the morning before Sunrise, doing jape slowly with full devotion and dedication.
