Durga Puja

Postby osen on Thu Oct 18, 2007 9:48 am

Our main festival Durga Puja is starting from today.

This the festival of the demolition of all evil forces or energies by the good force or energies, which is symbolically showed as Devi Durga ('shaktirupini')
is killing the Mahishasura (evil force).

It is astonishing to find that in ancient India women are considered as the source of all power and energies and a man (Mahishasura) was killed by a woman because she is more powerful. Today we have patriarchal society!!!

That's very interesting and it's nice to see that women are considered so powerful, I tend to agree ;-)
