Mahalaya Songs Music Mahisasura Mardini - Birendra Krishna Bhadra

Download MP3 Mahalaya Songs Music

Mahalaya day, the day Durga was assigned the task of eliminating evil. It's invocation to the mother goddess to descend on earth "Jago Tumi Jago". Mahalaya is done through chanting of mantras and singing devotional songs. It is observed seven days before Durga Puja.

As Soma Das writes, One man who'll always be remembered for making Mahalaya memorable to one and all is Birendra Krishna Bhadra, the magical voice behind the “Mahisasura Mardini.” The legendary narrator recites the holy verses and tells the story of the descent of Durga to earth, in his inimitable style. Birendra Kishna Bhadra enthralls the listeners in the pre-dawn hours of Mahalaya. The All India Radio Programme is scripted by Bani Kumar and narrated by Bhadra.

A bloger, Mr BN Sinha becomes emotional durga puja and he hardly miss durga puja in his village in Silchar, Assam, though he stays in Kolkata. He says, "From the very childhood I have seen that Puja starts with Birendra Krishna Bhadra's imortal chandipath at four in the morning on Mahalaya. It is spectacular to see that thousands of people irrespective of ages come out on the streets in the wee hours in the morning and the street witness a packed crowd. It is probably the unique way for the Silcharites to welcome Ma Durga which we generally don't see in any part of the world".

Durga Mantra:

"Ya Devi svarbhabhuteshu Shaktirupena sangstitha"
"namastasyai namastasyai namastasyai namo namaH"

"Ya Devi svarbhabhuteshu Matrirupena sangstitha"
"namastasyai namastasyai namastasyai namo namaH"

"Ya Devi svarbhabhuteshu Shantirupena sangstitha"
"namastasyai namastasyai namastasyai namo namaH"

Durga Puja is also known as Basanti Puja. But Rama proponed the Puja and worshiped Durga in autumn and that is why it is known as 'Akal Bodhon' or untimely worship.
