Durgapuja Festival Tour Programs

Durgapuja at Bengal

Durga Puja festival marks the battle of goddess Durga with the shape-shifting, deceptive and powerful buffalo demon Mahishasura, and her emerging victorious. Thus, the festival epitomises the victory of good over evil, but it also is in part a harvest festival that marks the goddess as the motherly power behind all of life and creation. During this festival the major activities of the people are family and other social gatherings, shopping and gift-giving, feasting, pandal-visiting, exploring lighting decorations, participating on cultural events, experience idol immersion etc.

Explore Durga with Nilu

There are many interesting rituals happen during Durga Puja festival. The practice of including a bundle of nine different plants, called nabapatrika, as nature’s symbolism of Devi Durga, is a testament practice to its agricultural importance. The festival opens at twilight with prayers to Devi Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of knowledge, wisdom, music, poetry, independent thought, inner knowing and creativity. The puja rituals are long and complicated. Three days of Mantras (words for spiritual transformation), Shlokas (verse) Chants & Arati (prayer) and offerings are made, which include Vedic chants and multiple recitations of the Devi Mahatmya text in Sanskrit. You can explore the interesting rituals as Bodhan, Adhibash, Sandhi Pujo, Sindur Khela, Bisharjan and others.
