Five Friday Navas


A wish or desire is expressed before the goddess and a promise is made to return the favor with some appropriate gift. This is known as ‘Navas’ in Marathi. “If you ask with whole heart Mata will give and fulfill any wish” words said by of Guruvarya. Thousands of people have got their wishes fulfilled.


A childless couple may take the vow that on begetting one, Or Job Aspirant would make for favorable job, or any work you wish to get accomplished they would carry out Panchamrut Abhishek and gift mother a saree-choli, i.e., garments, to the Devi. The manner of the fulfillment of the vow depends upon the promise made. If it is no more than the presentation of a sadi-choli, or the filling of the lap with bodice-cloth i.e ‘khann’ and coconut, one has merely to purchase a set available immediately outside the temple and place it before the goddess.


How to make a Navas:


1. First Friday a Sankalp has to be made where devotees ask Maa to fulfill their wishes. A specific wish is made during offering Dahi Abhishek and ones the wish is  fulfilled devotees can decide how they want to thank Mata

2. Next consecutive five Fridays without breaking or staying absent he/she should do 1.25kgs curd Abhishek and pray wholeheartedly accompanied with doing some kind of Seva in the temple. He will be offered Mahaprasad before leaving the temple.

3. On the Fifth Friday he has to come early with all his family members to do Abhishek offer Saree, fruits and Sweets and do Shodapshari puja.

4. After completion of his Navas or Mannat he has to fulfill his vows within 2 Fridays.  It is mandatory to fulfill whatever you have promised to Maa.  Devotees are warned not to get overboard and promise which

cannot be fulfilled this can be very dangerous.

Mahalaxmi 108 Pradakshina navas.

Fulfill your wishes.

During a visit to  Mahalaxmi Temple, the devotee performs the rituals of prayers and then goes for either 3 circumambulations around the goddess or 11,21 or 108 as per the devotee's devotion and dedication.  While visiting the temple the devotees must remain pure and clean in aspects relating to mind and body., thinking and conduct. For atonement and self-purification one should make circumambulation around the diety. One can utter the Pradiskshana mantra to stabilize one's mind and also to make the worship effective.


Deity Pradakshina Sthothram

yaanikaanicha paapaani janmaanthara kruthanicha
thaavithaani pranashyanthi pradakshina pade pade
paapoham paapakarmaaham paapaathmaa paapasambhavam
thraahimaam krupayaa deva sharanaagatha-vathsala
anyadha sharanam naasthi thvameva sharanam mama
thasmaathkaarunabhaavena raksha rakha maheshvara (or janardhana, or any deity name)



O Almighty, please forgive the sins that have been committed in this and previous births with each step taken during the Pradiskshana. One who performs pradikshana every day with devotion and offers worship to the god, this act of the individual is equal to the Ashwamedha Yagya. Hence If one circumambulates around the deity he is believed to destroy all the sins.
