Durgapuja and Mahashashthi:
Mahashashthi is the first day of Durgapuja in family pujas- it plays the most important part of the puja- the invitation of the celestial being in clay deity. The puja called pranpratishtha (bringing to life) is held after dusk and continues for hours.
It’s a divine experience in one word if the priest performs it with true feelings.
I have shared the details of Durgapuja held in my family home, a pure example of rural, family puja. This year I will share the URL of that post and small things related to Durgapuja. Hope you will join me in my journey.
Today is Mahashtami- the third day of durgapuja. That means the pinnacle- from tomorrow it will be countdown.
the flames of pradeep dance in the eyes of the Mother it seems that the deity has come alive in response to all that love.
