Today is Mahalaya. This marks the beginning of Goddess Durga’s journey to Earth for the culmination towards the 10 day festival. The Mahalaya chanting is recited (or played) early morning in the households to invoke the divine presence of the Goddess and is extended as an invitation to grace us with blessings.

A dreamer, a mystic and a traveller! Gallivanting through this life, I travel to understand my soul, place by place, people by people. As a constant learner, I dabble with photography, playing music, reading tarot, practicing Reiki, learning new languages, painting, and of course travelling – I feel it is this variety of life that keeps life alive and fresh. When I am not doing anything, I can be found huddled up with a book in a corner of my house, letting my imagination take flight. View all posts by Tanya Raj
