Durga Puja is the universal festival of the worship of the Goddess Durga. Devi Durga is worshiped for 5 consecutive days of Navaratri, in the month of Ashwin in the Bengali calendar. But, this year, the Durga Puja will be held in the month of Karthik. Devi Durga destroyed Mahishashura, the Buffalo Demon, after a 9 days long war. She killed Mahishashura with a spear while her Lion bites him with full power. This very moment is made visible by making a sculpture every year. Then, we invite the Goddess within the sculpture with the help of Mantras. Then the puja begins and ends with the Visarjan of Devi Durga.
