Namaste Everyone,

Shubho Mahalaya To Everyone. The Day Maa Durga descends from heaven to Earth. It marks the beginning of Debi Paksha.From tomorrow, Navaratri will begin in many parts of India with "Kalash Sthapan". Maa Durga's nine swaroopas will be worshipped during these nine nights.

We all know why this Durga Puja is celebrated but in case if anyone is unaware let me narrate it.Sharadiya Durga Pooja takes place in Ashwin Masa. This pooja was done by Shri Rama. He invoked the Goddess untimely. That's why this puja is popularly known as "Akal Bodhan" which means untimely worship. Generally Durga Puja took place in Basant Masa and it was known as Basanti Durga Puja as it was the right time for it. Shri Rama worshipped Goddess Durga in order to gain her blessings to battle against the Demon King Ravana.

This year from 7th September 2016 i.e. Shasthi, Durga Pooja will commence which will continue till 11th September 2016 i.e. Vijaya Dashami. I am too excited this festive season. I wish that this festive season brings a lot of happiness, joy, good health and prosperity to you all.

Jai Maa Durga
