Durga Puja 2012 : Sandhi Pujo

Sandhi Pujo at the New Alipore Association at New Alipore.

On Ashtami, an integral and important part of the Puja is, Sandhii Puja. This is performed at the juncture of the 8th and 9th lunar day. The last 24 minutes of Ashtami and the first 24 minutes of Navami, a total of 48 minutes between the two lunar days, constitute the Sandhi or Sandhikhan,the Sacred Juncture. It is considered to be a most auspicious time. At this time Durga is worshipped as Chamunda ,that is, Kali who killed the demon Chanda and Munda.This Puja is considered to be the highest point in the whole Durga Puja and the most important ritual.
