Ek pura din MAA durga ke charno main bitain MAA Durga saare gunahon ko maaf karengi or hamen khushiyan pradan karengi. 7 October ko Maha-Astami hai us din upwas rkhen or Maa ki yaad main pura din bitayen.
Hey Maa Sherawali Hamare gunahon ko maaf kar. Ham tere nadan bachche hai hamen raah dikha hamara kalyaan kar.
JAI MAA KALI, YAI MAA SHERAWALI….

The Supreme power and the mother of all Gods and Goddesses, Maa Durga is the ultimate primordial being and the demon slayer. This Devi with lush black hair, beautiful eyes and ten hands dawned on earth to establish the supremacy of goodness over evil. In a battle fought over a span of ten days, Maa Durga wins the ceaseless battle between Gods and demons. Durga pujo is a way to celebrate this eternal manifestation of truth and purity. Devi Durga, the daughter of Himalaya, is an epitomy of graceful beauty, motherliness, and the strong and valor warrior.


The legend of Maa Durga has several renditions and so does the story behind Durga Puja. According to the most prevalent tale, the male gods of heaven created Devi Durga, the wrathful goddess, an incarnation of Ma Sati (Lord Shiva’s wife). A powerful demon named, Mahishasur (born out of the union of Rambha, the demon king and a water buffalo), who could easily change his form from human to buffalo dethroned Indra, the king of Heavens. This demon was bestowed by a unique boon from Brahmadev, whereby neither Man nor God could defeat him. Utter chaos and dismay prevailed through the entire heaven. All the Gods were shunned out of their golden seats. Defeated and disheartened the Gods request the Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh) to save them from annihilation.


The Trinity then comes together and creates a radiantly beautiful woman, Durga. A manifestation of the Supreme Power Adishakti herself, Devi Durga is the embodiment of the three flowing channels of primordial energy (and the subsequent kundalini powers) – Maha Lakshmi (Central Energy Channe), Maha Saraswati (Right Energy Channel) and Maha Kali (Left Energy Channel). These energies mould together to generate the ultimate source of energy as Ma Durga.

All other gods bestow their powers and energies on this beautiful, gracious and eloquent lady. King Himalaya adopts the Devi as his daughter and presents her with the magnificent White Lion that becomes her carrier. Armed with weapons in ten hands and mounted on the lion, Mother Durga descends on earth and there ensues a fierce battle between the Devi and demon Mahishasur. This ferocious battle continues for a span of ten days. Finally on the tenth day, Devi Durga kills Mahishahur with her trident (and hence the day is known as Vijay Dashami).

The festival is a celebration of this ultimate victory of Good over evil. It is said, every year Goddess Durga comes back to her father, Himalaya, along with her four children (Ganesh, Kartik, Lakshmi and Saraswati) during those eternal days of victory. It is an occasion of joy and happiness all over as we celebrate the return of the daughter through Durga Puja.


The following verses are a Hindi rendition of the original Shlokas:

Miti Ka Tan Huaa Pavitra, Ganga Ke Asnan Se |
Ant Karan Ho Jaye Pavitra, Jagadambe Ke Dhyan Se ||
Sarve Mangal Mangalye, Shive Sarvarth Sadhike |
Sharanye Trambake Gauri, Narayani Namo Stute ||
Shakti Shakti Do Mujhe, Karoon Tumhara Dhyan |
Path Nirvignya Ho Tera, Mera Ho Kalyan ||
Hridya Sinhasan Par Aa, Betho Meri Maa |
Suno Vinay Mam Din Ki, Jag Janani Vardan ||
Sundar Deepak Ghee Bhara, Karoon Aaj Tayaar |
Gyan Ujala Maa Karo, Metto Moh Andhkaar ||
Chandra Surya Ki Roshni, Chamke Chaman Akhand |
Sab Mein Vyapak Tej Hai, Jwala Ka Prachand ||
Jwala Jag Janani Meri, Raksha Karo Humesh |
Dur Karo Maa Ambike, Mere Sabhi Kalesh ||
Shradha Aur Vishwas Se, Teri Jyot Jalaoon |
Tera Hi Hai Aashra, Tere Hi Gun Gaoon ||
Teri Adhabhut Gaat Ko, Padhoon Mein Nischay Dhar |
Sakshat Darshan Karoon, Tere Jagat Aadhar ||
Man Chanchal Se Baat Ke, Samay Jo Aogun Hoye |
Dati Apni Daya Se, Dhyan Na Dena Koye ||
Main Anjan Malin Man, Na Jano Koi Rit |
At Pat Vani Ko Hi Maa, Samjho Meri Prit ||
Chaman Ke Aogun Bahot Hai, Karna Nahi Dhyan |
Sinhvahini Maa Ambike, Karo Mera Kalyan ||
Dhanya Dhanya Maa Ambike, Shakti Shiva Vishal |
Angh Angh Mein Rum Rahi, Dati Din Dayal ||
About Godess Durga

Once a year, in the autumnal month of Ashwin, Goddess Durga comes home to her parents, together with her four children, Ganesh, Laxmi, Karttik and Saraswati, and enjoys all the love and attention lavished on her. Unfortunately, this visit lasts only three days, and on the fourth day she starts on her journey back to her husband’s abode in the mountain kingdom of Kailash.Durga – Goddess of deliverance – comes to earth on the seventh day after the autumn new moon. She is depicted by the ‘kumors’ or potters as a resplendent golden figure standing on a lion’s back, each of her ten arms bearing a particular weapon, as she triumphs over the demon Mahisasura.

In Sanskrit Durga means ” She who is incomprehensible or difficult to reach .” Goddess Durga is a form of Shakti worshipped for her gracious as well as terrifying aspect. Mother of the Universe, she represents the infinite power of the universe and is a symbol of a female dynamism.

Durga, a beautiful warrior seated upon a tiger, was the first appearance of the great goddess. Also called by many other names, such as Parvati, Ambika, and Kali. Destroyer of demons, she is worshipped during Durga puja, most popular among Bengalis.

Durga is worshipped in various other forms also. She is

Uma, “light”;
Gauri , “yellow or brilliant”;
Parvati, “the mountaineer”;
Jagatmata , “the-mother-of-the-world”
Durga “the inaccessible”;
Kali , “the black”;
Chandi , “the fierce”;
Bhairavi , “the terrible.”


There are several Durga puja stories, legends and mythologies. Some of them are about the goddess herself, while others are about Devi Durga’s devotees. These fascinating and marvelous stories have been taking rounds since ages through the oral tradition of literature. The most important story on Ma Durga has been written in ancient scriptures and textbooks. Read about that legend of Maa Durga by clicking on the link. Apart from this traditional story, there are several other renditions about the origin of Durga Pooja. One such story talks about the Pandavas, the famous five brothers from Mahabharata, the great Indian epic.


After losing in a game of dice, the Pandavas go into exile for 12 years and one year in disguise. While disguising themselves, they hid their royal clothes and weapons under a Shammi tree. On the day of Dashami (Dussehra), the Pandavas complete one year of disguised exile, and expose their true identities. It celebrates their true victory over evil and hence the day is known as Vijaya Dashami. Another famous story is related to Lord Rama. Before commencing the battle in Lanka against Ravana, Lord Rama started Chandi Puja (An incarnation of Maa Durga) with hundred and nine lotus flowers. To test the devotion and surrender of Lord Rama, Devi Durga hid one of the lotuses. When time came to pray to the goddess, Rama found himself short of one lotus flower. In order to make up for it, he surrenders his own eye. Immediately, Maa Durga comes out and saves his son and promises him victory. The Durga Puja held during this time is known as Bosonto Utsav.

There are several more stories on the occasion of Durga Puja. Each Durga temple in India has an enchanting and fascinating legend behind it. It is not possible to accumulate these rich and diverse stories in one written page. Maa Durga has always blessed her devotees and taken greatest care of them. Durga Puja is a way to honor this Goddess who is the Mahishasur Mardini and the beautiful and gracious mother.
