In the early hours of Saptami, the nine leaves from the nine trees are tied to the twigs of the white Aparajita plant with yellow threads. It is then bathed in the Ganga, accompanied by the chanting of mantras.

Then the Pranpratisha ritual is performed to divinize the clay idol of Uma. The aim of this ritual to awaken the spirit of Durga as a worrier Goddess. From the day of Saptami, Mahisasurmardini Durga starts her battle against the manifestation of all evils in the shape of Mahisasura to save the Srishti- the whole world.
