Mahalaya is observed before 7 days of Durgapuja. It is said that on this day an invitation is being sent to Goddess Durga, the Goddess of supreme power to descend to the earth to end the evil of the World. This day people chant mantras and slokas to invoke Mother Goddess. Bengalis think of Mother Goddess not only as supreme power but a girl of this earth who is married to Mahadev. It is said that on the day of Bengali mahalaya Goddess Durga with her children starts her journey to earth from her husband Mahadev's adobe Kailash.
