About Durga Puja


Durga Puja is the favourite festival of the people of West Bengal.This festival is celebrated for nine days all over India,though with differing rituls.It is also called Navratri in some parts of the country.Durga puja is celebrated in the September/October. According to the Hindu solar calandar, it falls on the first nine days of the month of Ashwin. It is the time of the year when the weather is at its moderate best, giving the air a festive touch.

It is belive that in ancient times, a demon called Mahishasura earned the favour of Lord Shiva after long meditation and prayers.Shiva, pleased with the devotion of the demon, blessed him with a boon that no man or God would be able to kill him.Empowered with the boon, Mahishasura started killing people mercilessly and even drove the gods out from heaven.The gods then told Shiva about the atrocities of the demon.Angered by this, Shiva opened his third eye and concentrated the energy coming out of it to from a woman.All the gods who were present there contributed their share of energy to this goddess and thus Durga was born.

Riding a lion , she attacked Mahishasura and beheaded him.Ironically perhaps, Mahishasura may have founded the Durga puja when upon lrarning of his impending denise at the hands of the goddess he, as his last wish, asked the goddess that he too might be worshipped along with her.The goddess granted his wish and since then, the demon is seen at her feet in there of her forms.
