The goddess who is omnipresent as the personification of universal mother

Durga Puja is victory celebration of good over evil. Divine Mother Durga is the epitome of Shakti and righteousness. She harbors the combined energies of all the Gods and protects us from all evil. Every year, in the autumnal month of Ashvin, Ma Durga visits her parents with her four children, Ganesh, Laxmi, Saraswati, & Kartik, to enjoy all the love and affection of home for five days.

Durga represents the Divine Mother. She is the Shakti, or energy aspect, which is the omnipotent power of the Lord, or the Cosmic Energy. The Divine Mother is represented as having ten different weapons in her hands. She sits on a lion. She keeps up the play of the Lord through the three attributes of Nature, namely, Sattwa, Rajas and Tamas. The Mother’s Grace is boundless, her mercy illimitable and her power immeasurable. She gives you material prosperity as well as spiritual freedom.

Approach her with an open heart. Lay bare your heart to her with frankness and humility. Be as simple as a child. Defeat the enemies of egoism & selfishness. Surrender yourself to her, sing her praise, and worship her with faith and unflinching devotion. These days are very sacred to the Divine Mother. We invite you all to plunge yourself in her devotion and perform Durga Puja with us. We will soon update more details around the Puja and related festivities on this page.
