The Bangalee Hindu community in the country as elsewhere in the world will celebrate the Mahalaya, the auspicious occasion heralding the advent of goddess Durga, reports BSS.
With the beginning of ‘Devipaksha’, Mahalaya is observed seven days before Durga Puja, the biggest religious festival of the Bangalee Hindu community.
On October 4, the Durga Puja will begin with different rituals on the day of Maha Shashthi.
On the occasion of the day, special programmes of Mahalaya will be arranged at different temples across the country including capital Dhaka tomorrow morning.
On this day, Hindus remember and pay homage to their ancestors, who passed away, by performing puja, and offering Brahmins clothes, food and sweets in their name.
