Bengalis bring in Durga Puja under the auspices of the universally acclaimed Astrologer Guruji Subrata Banerjee.
Guruji Subrsta advocates that one of the biggest festival of Bengal – Durga Puja is here and is celebrated by the Hindus and the Bengalis in true religious fervour not only in India but even in countries across the seven seas.
Guruji asserted ” last year I shared my experiences and views and knowledge on the Nabapatrika, Mahasnan, Sandhi Puja, Kumari Pujas. But at this time I h ave tried to enlighten on the Ganika-dar Mrittika whicj is explicitly explained in Rudrajamaal as *Homadikang hi sakalang kumaripujonang bina. Paripurnam phalang na swat pujya tad bhabed dhrubam. He further added that worship, chanting, hom (yagna/hawan) is incomplete without Kumari puja. Hence it is conducted in Belurmath with many other big pujas. Again according to Yogini Tantra the (1st part /chapter 12 , 35 & 36 shlok * yodi bhagyabashaddebi beshyakulsasamudvbam kumaring lavote kambhe sarbaswenapi sadhak. jatnatay pujowettayantu sarnaroupyadibhimurdam. tada tasya Mahasiddhi jaryate natra Sangsaya* ( Hey Goddess, if by luck if any sadhak finds a daughter who is born in a beshya family, then sadhak takes care of the virgin girl by worshipping her with gold, silver and so forth. Then he may attain Mahasiddha and compared as Shadashiv) . This term ‘besshya’ is mentioned as Trantra terminology and does not mean the one which prevails socially. In the 14th verse of ‘NiruttarTrantra, it is described by Shadashiv as, *Abambiba bhabedasha na kulta preye. Kulta sangamaddebi rorurabam narokang brojet.* (Mahanirban tantra) Purnabristika is mentioned as beshya in tantra. *Beshya tu na patitang basya trilokong tatoy beshya”. Kali, Tara, Dasamahavidhya and also those screening gods are mentioned as beshya because they have the power to subjugate the entire universe. According to tantra ‘Purnarbhischikta Shakti (power ) are veils of Dasamahabidya’ and observed that gods of those are Purnabhisikta also mentioned as veshya) in technical term and not a prostitute.
Hence it is claimed that the soil at their doorstep is described auspicious and is also used during the Maha Snan. Guruji Subrata Banerji went on to add that people of today’s generation hail Ganika Dar Mrittika mentioned as a house in the soil of prostitute which perhaps is not a perfect concept.
So I’m trying to clarify it as it is mentioned in the Shastriya concept Guruji said.
