Period Of Puja

In the Krittibas Ramayana, Lord Rama invokes the energies of goddess Durga in his battle against Ravana. This was a deviation from the tradition. As per tradition, Devi Durga is worshipped and invoked in the months of Spring. However, since Lord Rama was in a battle, out of contingency, he invoked the goddess in autumn and this was known as Akal Bodhan. With changing times, Lord Rama's invocation of the goddess has achieved ascendency and Durga is worshipped in autumn. However, the Hindu scriptures and almanacs, the dates for Spring Puja or Basanti Poojan are also mentioned.The pujas are held over a ten-day period.
