Durga Puja-2012!




The destroyer of evil this year has arrived today—the sixth day of the illuminated lunar fortnight or Sashthi—with the idols of Goddess Durga being installed in public pandals across India and offerings of prayers for the first day rituals. Navratri celebrations (nine nights of worship, prayers and ritualistic dancing for various forms of Goddess Durga) is already in full swing from the 16th of October, 2012.

Elaborate rituals, offerings of various nature, daily Prasad of fruits and Kichdi Bhog as a full midday meal and evening cultural programs will continue for the Saptami (7th day of the lunar fortnight and 2nd day of Durga Puja), the Ashtami (8th day), Navami (9th day) and Vijaya Dashami or Dasera (10th and immersion day of Devi Durga, in most Pujas Bhog is not distributed on this day). On the Dasera day Goddess Durga idols will be immersed in the rivers or lakes across the country along with public symbolic burning of evil in various forms.

Happy Durga Puja-2012! Feel the strength of truth and honesty, and be blessed by Her!
