Durga Puja is
celebrated in various parts of India in different styles. But the one basic aim
of this celebration is to propitiate Shakti, the Goddess in her aspect as power,
to bestow upon man all wealth, auspiciousness, prosperity, knowledge (both
sacred and secular), and all other potent powers. Whatever is the particular or
special request that everyone may put before the Goddess, whatever boon may be
asked of her, and the one thing behind all these is propitiation, worship and
linking oneself with her. There is no other aim. This is being affected
consciously or unconsciously. Everyone is blessed with her loving mercy and is
protected by her.
