Mahashtami is the day when Ramchandra slayed Ravana, in the actual durgapuja, that is held in Spring this is the day when Mother Goddess Durga killed the buffalo demon, Mahishasur. the moment on which that occurred is called sandhikshan, and different famillies celebrate this day in different ways, in my ancestral home it is celebrated with 108 lotuses and 108 earthen lamps or pradeep’s offered to the Goddess.
Wish you all a very blessed Durgapuja ahead!
May your world be forever blessed!
