History of Durga Puja
According to mythology, Lord Rama was the first to have worshipped the ‘Mahishasura Mardini’. Maa Durga was the slayer of the buffalo-demon, and by offering 108 blue lotuses and lighting 108 lamps, at this time of the year, the Lord invoked the blessing of Shakti.
The first grand worship of Goddess Durga in recorded history is said to have been celebrated in the late 1500s. Folklores say the landlords or zamindar of Dinajpur and Malda initiated the first Durga Puja in Bengal. The origin of the community puja followed soon after. Individual communities collect contributions from local residents to conduct the Durga Puja Festivities.
