Navaratri Puja is a very, powerful puja in a way, because it manifests, opens out the channels of your power, that's why it's very important. All the forces of the Jagadamba act towards hitting the negativity of all kinds. That is Her first and foremost nature, is to destroy all the negativity that is in this world and is against Sahaj, against you. Her destruction takes place in so many ways. First of all, we have to know that if you sin against the Goddess, then all kinds of physical problems start .
If you believe in the Goddess, then know that She is extremely powerful, She is very intelligent, and if She has to protect you She will protect you out and out. But this faith has to be developed. Faith has to be developed by experience also, how you have been protected always; how you have been helped always; how you came out of so many crises. But despite that if you get upset, worried, if some clouds appear in the sky of your life, then if you get upset, that means you are still weak. So first thing, if you are really worshipping the Goddess, then you should have no worry at all of any kind, and you should have no fear at all. Go ahead, fearlessly. Whatever you are doing, do it fearlessly. But at the same time I have to tell you the other side, that one should not go about like a zombie, it doesn't mean that; saying all kinds of nonsensical things of the right side. But if you have to do something, do it with clear-cut ideas, and also without any fear
