Maha Ashtami

Ashtami is the highest point of celebration in the four day long celebration. It is the day Goddess Durga kills Mahishasura, the buffalo-demon. Devotees are once again awed at her courage and power. Falling at her feet they ask for her blessings. 108 lamps are lighted to commemorate the Sandhipuja – when Durga turned into the fearful Chamunda to wipe off the evil and protect the innocent.
