History of Mahalaya

According to mythological beliefs, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh created Maa Durga to kill the tyrannical demon Mahishasura. Mahishasura was blessed with a boon that no god or human would be able to kill him. After receiving such a boon, Mahishasura became the king of the demons and attacked the gods.

The gods lost the war and Devlokar was ruled by Mahishasura. To protect him from Mahishasura, all the gods worshiped Adi Shakti along with Lord Vishnu. During this, a divine light emerged from the bodies of all the deities, which took the form of Goddess Durga. Maa Durga, armed with weapons, killed Mahishasura on the 10th day after fighting a fierce battle for nine days. Actually, Mahalaya signifies the arrival of Maa Durga on earth. Maa Durga is considered to be the goddess of power.
