a very Happy and auspicious Maha Navmi !
This day marks the end of the nine days of fasting in Navratri.
It is a very special day in many households all across the country, who celebrate by observing fast and offer prasad to Goddess Durga.
Maha Navami (Mahanavami) or Durga Navami is celebrated as the victory of good over evil.
It is the last day of battle between goddess Durga and demon Mahishasura.
The day of Maha Navami begins with Mahasnan (holy bath), followed by prayers to goddess Durga or Maa Durga.
It is believed that on Maha Navami goddess Durga is worshipped as Mahisasuramardhini – which literally means the slayer of the buffalo demon or mahishasura.
On Maha Navami, Durga Maa made her final assault on demon Mahishasura, and the following morning, on Vijayadashami, triumphed over him.
