Why Durga Puja Is Celebrated ??
This festival is celebrated on joy of goddess Durga defeating the shape-shifting, deceptive and powerful buffalo demon Maheshasura, and her emerging victorious. Thus, the festival epitomes the victory of good over evil, but it also is in part a harvest festival that marks the goddess as the motherly power behind all of life and creation.
The world was under threat from the evil buffalo demon Mahishasura, that no man or god could defeat. To vanquish the demon, Durga emerged from the collective energies of all the gods. Each of her ten arms brandished the deadliest weapon of each god. Durga was the mother to four gods, Kartikeya, Ganesha, Saraswati and Lakshmi.
