Durga Ashtami 2021: Here Are its Wishes, Messages, Quotes and the Greetings
Durga Ashtami is the auspicious eighth day of Durga Puja or Sharadiya Navratri. It is also known as Maha Ashtami. This year, Ashtami falls on October 13. Maha Ashtami is also the day for Kumari Puja, in which nine girls below the age of 10 years are worshipped. A ritual called Mahasnaan is also followed on this day. Durga Ashtami is one of the most important days of the festival.
It is believed in some regions, the Goddess Chamunda appeared on this day from the forehead of Mother Durga and annihilated Chanda, Munda, and Rakthabija (the demons who were associates of Mahishasura). The 64 Yoginis and Ashta Shakti or matrikas (the eight ferocious form of Goddess Durga) are worshiped during the Durga Puja rituals on Mahashtami. The Ashta Shakti, also known as Eight Shaktis, are interpreted differently in different regions of India. But ultimately, all the eight goddesses are incarnations of Shakti. They are the same powerful Divine Feminine, representing different energies.
The Ashta Shakti worshiped during Durga Puja are Brahmani, Maheswari, Kaumari, Vaishnavi, Varahi, Narasinghi, Indrani and Chamunda.
