Navratri Nitya (daily) Pooja procedure in Tamil 2017

From day after tomorrow, 21 Sep 2017, the Navratri (நவராத்திரி) or Dussehra (தசரா) festival commences.  Navratri is divided into sets of three days to adore three different aspects of the supreme goddess.

Traditionally (in Tamil) the goddess is worshipped as Durga during the first 3 days, as Lakshmi during the middle three and as Saraswati during the final 3 days.  The 10th day - Vijaya Dashami - literally the tenth day of Victory is celebrated as the day when the goddess killed the demon Mahishasura.

The ninth day of Navratri is celebrated as Saraswati Pooja or Ayudha Pooja, as has become (expected ?) the practice, we will upload the full Saraswati Pooja or Ayudha Pooja on 29 Sep 2017 procedure in Tamil within the next few days.  And this year, we will add the punar pooja to be done on Vijayadashami day 30 Sep 2017 too.
This year we have added two more free PDF downloads,
  • one of which specifies the particular flowers for pooja and Carnatic raga to be performed on each of the 10 days
  • the second specifies the particular neivedhyams and sundal to be preferable made on each of the 10 days
The download links for those will be posted shortly.
Meanwhile, here is Nitya Pooja or daily pooja procedure for the 8 days.  As usual it is uploaded as a Navrathri Nitya Pooja procedure in Tamil for free PDF download.
Here is the snapshot of the page displaying the thithi, varam, and nakshatra for each of the 10 days.
