jagadhatri puja

India | Saturday, 5 November 2011 | 5 photos

I took this Photograph in In Jagadhatri puja in Chandannagar Hooghly. In Hinduism, Jagaddhatri or Jagadhatri is a form of Devi, the supreme goddess. Her worship is more common in West Bengal than the other parts of India. Her cult is directly derived from Tantra where she is a symbol of sattva beside Durga and Kali, respectably symbolized with Rajas and Tamas. Jagaddhatri Puja is a major autumnal Hindu event after Durga Puja and Kali Puja. Generally, Jagaddhatri is referred as another name of Durga. In Sanskrit and Bengali, the word 'Jagaddhatri' literally means 'Holder (dhatri) of the World (Jagat)' .
