mahashtami the third day

=====================================================================================
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 in past years, 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.

Who says those eyes are painted on clay
Love and devotion can turn clay into divine.

  1. morndai hi..dot…a new day in the lord praise him………………The Lord’s wounded hands, feet, and side reveal God’s desire to change our hearts by the power of His love.

    Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

    2 Corinthians 5:17, Ezekiel 36:26, Ephesians 3:17-19
