Maha Navami is observed on the ninth day of the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of the moon) of Ashwin month. The day begins after the end of the Sandhi puja. Mahanavami is also the penultimate day of Durga Puja. Maha Navami rituals are the final rituals associated with Durga Puja. ‘Maha Arti’ is considered a formal end of religious customs. Merriment, music, and dance fill the rest of the day. On Maha Navami, a major bhog is held and Prasad is offered to Goddess Durga. This bhog prasad is shared by devotees.
As the Navami night passes Uma will have to leave her father’s house for her husband’s place. The next day is Durga Murti Visarjan or immersion.
