     Navratri means "As we take nine months in our mother's womb, before we are

born, we take these nine days to go back to our source. These nine days are to be

spent in meditation, satsangs, silence and knowledge."


 

     In Bengal, Mahalaya (Bengali: মহালয়া) marks the beginning of Durga Puja

festivities.  Mahalaya is the day when the goddess Durga is believed to have

descended to Earth.  People in West Bengal, traditionally wake up early in the

morning on Mahalaya to recite hymns from the Devi Mahatmyam (Chandi) scripture. 

Offerings to the ancestors are made in homes and at puja mandaps.  Goddess

Durga has finally been awakened with the morning song of Mahalaya .  It is

symbolically seen that Goddess Durga awakens to fight back darkness and slay the

devil wrecking havoc on Earth.
