Maa Durga in our History, Culture, Philosophy and Emotion

Every nation has philosophical and historical roots in its cultural background. 

Culture is the vital tool of development, prosperity, lifestyle and overall the civilization of that nation. 

India is one of the oldest nations and the only unbroken alive civilization among the 46 oldest  civilizations in the world according to UNESCO. 

Indian civilization or the Hindu Civilization is the successor of the great Indus Valley Civilization which is called the Sindhu-Saraswati Civilization in today's age. 

India has a glorious history of women worshiping as a form of Goddess or Devi since long long ago at the very beginning of Indian civilization. 

The people of the Indus Valley Civilization used to worship the mother goddess. The society was matriarch. Womanhood was being worshipped as a form of Energy. Since then, Devi Durga comes to our land in an evolutionary way. 

Markandeya Purana is the oldest scripture where Durga puja procedure is described. Day by day the procedure got evoluted and got a modern shape in various places. Durgapuja marks the Victory of goddess Durga in the battle against the devils who are called Asura.   

According to mythology, for the first time on the earth Durgapuja was initiated by the king Surath and the merchant Samadhi in the Ashrama of Medhas Muni (a monk, described in the Markandeya Purana and in the Shri Shri Chandi or the Devimahatmam or the Devi Bhagavata Purana). Currently the Ashrama (the holy land of worshiping deity) is situated in Chittagong, the district of the undivided Bengal (now in Bangladesh).  It is said that from this particular place Durgapuja got popularized among the Bengalis of undivided Bengal and later on among the other nations in the whole Indian subcontinent.
