Durga Mahashtami Date and Puja Time During Navratri - Durgastami 2017

Mahashtami, also referred to as Maha Durgashtami, is second day's Durga Puja. Maha Ashtami is among the most significant times of Durga Puja. Durga Puja on Maha Ashtami starts with Mahasnan and Shodashopachar Puja (षोडशोपचार पूजा) which is extremely much like Maha Saptami Puja except Prana Pratishtha (प्राण प्रतिष्ठा) that is done just once on Maha Saptami.

On Maha Ashtami nine small containers are set up and nine Shaktis of Durga are invoked inside them. All nine types of Goddess Durga are worshipped during Maha Ashtami Puja.

Youthful unmarried women, receiving treatment as Goddess Durga itself, will also be worshipped on Maha Ashtami. Worshipping of youthful women during Durga Puja is called Kumari Puja. In lots of regions Kumari Puja is performed during all nine times of Durga Navratri. Kumari Puja on one day during Durga Puja is preferred on Maha Ashtami.

The legendary Sandhi Puja can also be falls on Maha Asthami. Time window from the last 24 minutes of Ashtami Tithi and also the first 24 minutes of Navami Tithi is called Sandhi Time or even the holy juncture during Durga Puja. Sandhi time is among the most auspicious time during whole Durga Puja. Sandhi Puja may be the culmination point and the most crucial ritual of Durga Puja. 

It's customary to do Balidan or animal sacrifice only at that sacred juncture. Devotees who refrain from animal sacrifice perform symbolic Indonesia with vegetables like blueberry, cucumber or pumpkin. For Brahmins any kind of animal sacrifice is illegitimate by scriptures and Brahmin community does only symbolic Indonesia. 

The famous Belur Math in West Bengal does symbolic Indonesia with blueberry during Sandhi Puja. It's customary to light 108 earthen lamps during Sandhi Kaal.
