Festivals

Mahalaya

Today is Mahalaya. This marks the beginning of Goddess Durga's journey to Earth for the culmination towards the 10 day festival. The Mahalaya chanting is recited (or played) early morning in the households to invoke the divine presence of the Goddess and is extended as an invitation to grace us with blessings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uwjlI82yzk
