Navratri First Day Puja Time in 2017 – Good Time for Navratri Puja in 2017

Navratri first day is highly auspicious in northern and western parts of India and in Nepal. Kalash Sthapana Puja or Ghatasthapana is held on the day. The best time for Navratri puja on September 21, 2017 is from 6:16 AM to 8:07 AM

In Ghatasthapana, a kalash with an image of Goddess Durga is installed in the house on the day. The pot or kalash is filled with water and is covered with cow dung and seeds (like barely or wheat) are sown on the dung. The pot is kept on a sand bed and seeds are sown on this too.
Special pujas are conducted on the pot and water is sprinkled daily. The seeds sprout and reach about 3 or 5 five inches on the tenth day. They are distributed as Prasad on the Vijaya dasami day.

Tejobindu Upanishad Teachings

Supreme meditation should be upon Tejobindu, which is the Atma of the universe, which is seated in the heart, which is of the size of an atom, which pertains to Shiva, which is quiescent and which is gross and subtle, as also above these qualities.
That alone should be the dhyana of the saints as well as of human beings, the path of which is full of pains, which is difficult to meditate on, which is difficult to perceive, which is the emancipated one, which is decayless and which is difficult to attain.
One whose food is moderate, whose anger has been controlled, who has given up all love for society, who has subdued his passions, who has overcome all pairs of opposites, who has given up his egoism, who does not bless anyone nor take anything from others, and also who goes where they naturally ought not to go, and naturally would not go where they like to go – such persons also obtain three in the face (moksha while living on earth).
