Navpadji Oli starts Chaitra Sud 7 to Chaitra Sud 15.
Navpadji Oli Tap festivals are considered to be Saswati, meaning permanent. It means Navpad Oli festivals exist in all time cycles (past, present and future). During these days, everyday worship is offered to the Navpad. Each day of nine days’ festival is devoted to nine pads of Siddhachakra.
During these nine days, we should do aayambil - means - Eat once in a day in one sitting a simple spice free food, boiled or cooked without milk, curd, ghee, oil, green/raw vegetables, fruits and sugar. Of course NO ROOTS.
If you are unable to do aayambil, PLEASE try to do the following's:
- Do not eat roots in these 9 days.
- Do Chauvihar as many days as possible - at least do over the weekend
- Do Loggasa Khamasana and Navkarvalis as many days as possible - at least do over the weekend
