    Durga Pooja is main festival in Bengalis. They call it as "Durga Pujo". It is believed that Goddess Durga killed deceptive and powerful buffalo demon Mahishasura; who was blessed to not be defeated by any man or God. Let's find out what is the Essence of Durga Pooja Celebration. Essence of Durga Pooja Celebration: Demon Mahishasura wanted to destroy all the Gods (Devas in Hindi) as Gods & Demons were perpetually in conflict. Therefore, to make himself invincible, Mahishasura would perform Tapas (worship in the form of meditation) to God Brahma; and, requested Brahma to confer him a boon of immortality. But, Brahma refused him the boon of immortality. However, Brahma gave him a boon that none of the men or Gods will be able to kill him, but a woman can. Mahishasura accepted the boon with a thought that it was impossible for a woman to kill a person of his strength. So, for him this boon was equivalent to immortality. And, with this belief, Mahishasura started a war against the Gods. Gods could not win this war against Mahishasura. Finally, they approached the trinity of Gods - Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh (Shiva) to seek help. Then, the three great powerful Gods combined their divine energies and created a woman, who could defeat & kill Mahishasura. The Goddess thus emerged was Devi Durga, the embodiment of Shakti or divine feminine power. She exists in a state of self sufficiency and in ultimate power. Hence, Goddess Durga killed Demon Mahishasura and restored balance in the universe. Thus, the festival of Durga Pooja epitomizes the Victory of Good over Evil, but it also is in part a harvest festival that marks the goddess as the motherly power behind all of life and creation. Durga Pooja Celebration: Durga Pooja celebration involves worshiping of Goddess Durga, the ten armed Goddess riding the Lion. Pujo begins with Mahalaya and entail ten days of fast, feast, worship and celebration. The last four days Saptami, Ashtami, Navami and Dashami are celebrated with gaiety, grandeur and with great zeal. Read our next blog about "Daywise Rituals of Durga Pujo".

  • 0 Tourist Attractions in Israel and the Palestinian Territories

    Home to some of the world's most famous historic sites, Israel and the Palestinian Territories are often thought of as simply a pilgrimage destination. After all, this is where some of the main events for those of the Jewish, Muslim, and Christian faiths is said to have happened. But for travelers not seeking out religious highlights in the churches, synagogues, and mosques, there are plenty of other attractions. The Dead Sea is a bizarre natural wonder where you can't sink. The Galilee region's natural beauty ticks all the boxes for those who want to hike in nature. And the Negev desert's raw and rocky landscapes are ripe for adventure seekers looking for some dusty action. Sure, the religious sites here will always be the main draw card for a visit, but scratch below the surface and you'll find there's so much more.     1 Jerusalem   Jerusalem Aching with the weight of history, Jerusalem has one of the world's most recognisable skylines, with the golden helmet of the Dome of the Rock glinting above the caramel-colored stone of the old city. This ancient city holds deep religious significance for all those of the monotheistic faiths, and the labyrinthine alleyways in the old district are packed with religious sites and mind-boggling history. Dodge the crowds of pilgrims and take a walk along the walls that still wrap around the old city. Explore the city's fabulous museums. And immerse yourself in the mazy lanes, which kings, Crusaders, and conquerors have all fought over. Jerusalem enchants and confounds in equal measures.   2 Haifa   Haifa Jerusalem is all history. Tel Aviv is about modern dining and café culture. And Haifajust does its own thing. This lovely northern city's main highlight is the Baha'i Gardenswhich tumble down the hillside towards the sea in a series of immaculate green terraces. They're a must-do for all travelers here, but Haifa's big attraction for many visitors is that it's the perfect base to explore the north. Akko, Mount Carmel, and Caesarea are right on the doorstep, and even Nazareth and Megiddo could be easily done as a day trip from here. Hands down the most easygoing city in the country, Haifa should be part of everyone's itinerary.   3 Nazareth   Nazareth Forever linked to the Bible, Nazareth is one of the main pilgrimage destinations in the country. The holy sites here are some of the most important in the world for those of the Christian faith. This is where the Annunciation took place, and where Jesus Christ was brought up, and the center of town is home to important churches that celebrate this history. Don't miss the Basilica of the Annunciation and exploring the vibrant bazaar area, which adds some modern bustle to the twisty, old city lanes.   4 Jaffa   Jaffa A picturesque vision of honey-colored stone, Jaffa is a chilled-out little harbor town with an illustrious past as a major port. Made for aimless wandering and home to an excellent flea market, Jaffa provides an old-world style respite from the modern thrum of Tel Aviv next door. The muddle of lanes leading down to the sea, where once the great ships of the ancient Mediterranean empires docked, are now a haven for café-hopping and lazy afternoon sightseeing. All who visit soon succumb to its charms.   5 The Dead Sea   The Dead Sea   The lowest point on earth and one of the world's most wacky natural wonders, the Dead Sea is the mineral-rich and overly salty sea where no one can sink. Locked in by the cliffs of the Great Rift Valley, this bizarre body of water (where natural buoyancy occurs due to the high salt content) has been wowing travelers for centuries. Take a float - you can't really sink - and you'll be won over as well. 6 Bethlehem   Bethlehem A major Christian pilgrimage center, Bethlehem is home to the Church of the Nativity, built over the site where Jesus Christ is said to have been born. The stately church complex with its far-reaching historical significance, and the busy market vibe of the bazaar make this the number one highlight of the West Bank. Although many travelers only come here as a day trip from Jerusalem, the town is an excellent place to base yourself for excursions into the surrounding countryside.     7 Timna Park   Timna Park Raw, rugged desert scenery at its best; Timna Park, near Eilat, is one of the most beautiful corners of the Negev. The landscapes here have a visceral quality, which enchant all who visit, with towering cliffs and surreally-shaped boulders set between vast tracts of multi-hued sand. Timna's copper mining history (which stretches back to the ancient Egyptians) is also worth exploring; the area is full of ancient mine shafts and rock inscriptions.     8 Sea of Galilee   Sea of Galilee Share:    Gorgeous countryside and bags of history, the shoreline that wraps around the Sea of Galilee is packed full of attractions. Whether you're here to visit the churches of Tabgha, where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount and carried out much of his preaching, or you just want to soak in the hot pools near Tiberias and do some hiking, this beautiful region is a major highlight of any trip. Don't miss taking a swim in the sea itself and soaking up the views across the lake on a hillside hike. 9 Masada   Masada This mountaintop fortress, overlooking the Dead Sea, is home to incredible vistas and some fascinating history. This is where King Herod's once mighty palace stood and where the Zealots took their last stand against the Roman Legions. If you're up for a hike, the winding Snake Path is the perfect way of reaching the top with excellent panoramas all the way. Otherwise, take the cable car and see the views without the sweat.   10 Mar Saba Monastery   Mar Saba Monastery Mar Saba Monastery is an architectural marvel of the Byzantine age, precariously snuggled into the cliff face as if it had sprouted organically out of the sheer rock. Although female travelers are not allowed to actually enter the monastery, the view is enough of a reason to visit, with the metal domes glinting in the sun between the rock face. An easy day trip from Bethlehem or Jerusalem, Mar Saba Monastery is one of the Holy Land's great historic sites. 11 Beit Shean   Beit Shean   In a country full of ruins, Beit Shean stands out from the crowd for its excellent preservation. Here, you can get a real feel for the life of a Roman and Byzantine town with its colonnaded streets, well-restored theater, and extensive bath house remains. Stroll the once mighty streets, explore the extensive ruins, and sit in the theater where the Roman city's cultural life was played out. It's a fabulous slice of the ancient world that any history lover should see.   12 Akko   Akko   Wrapped up in Crusader history, Akko (Acre to the Crusaders) has a mellow harbor full of colorful, bobbing fishing boats; a vibrant bazaar crammed with spice, produce, and interesting artisan products; and a truckload of history to boot. The city walls, old khans (caravanserais), and fort remnants speak of another age, when this town was the center of the empire. One of the most fun towns to explore (who doesn't like a secret tunnel?), Akko is a great mix of historic sites and modern life.

    Sometimes when you travel for business as well as pleasure, suddenly the tour gets interrupted due to over exertion of body and mind. So the next time you travel, take your yoga to go with you using these portable tips. The routine will take only 20 to 40 minutes spending about three to 10 minutes on each pose, either in the morning or right before bed. Whether you are dealing with a stiff neck, general lethargy or lower back tension caused by vigorous traveling, you will find that these poses  help you  relaxing physically and mentally to get back on your feet and ready to enjoy your trip. #1Slow Motion Dive :- Sit in a chair with your knees wide. Align your heels under your knees and point your toes slightly inward. Slide your buttocks back into the chair, lean your elbows on your knees, and let your head hang forward. Breathe deeply and feel your neck lengthen as you relax into the pose. You can drop farther forward and place your hands on or close to the floor, if comfortable. To come out of the pose, use your elbows or hands to gradually push yourself up, with your head rising last. *Benefits: Releases tension in the tailbone and relaxes the shoulders and neck. #2 Crooked Knee Pose:- Sit in a chair with your legs together and in front of you. Slide feet slightly forward. Place your left ankle on your right thigh, with the groove of that ankle on your thighbone, and slide the ankle towards your hip. Tip your head forward, softening the back of your neck. If you feel any discomfort, stay at this stage. If not, then lift your front ribs upward slightly as you inhale, then tip your torso forward as you exhale. Dangle your arms alongside your legs or place your hands or forearms on your right knee. To come out of the pose, use your hands as you did in slow motion dive, raising your head last. Lower your raised leg to the floor, rest and breathe deeply, then do the other side. Benefits: Relieves tension in the back and neck; soothes sciatica. Also quiets the mind and releases pressure in the pelvic and abdominal organs, aiding digestion. #3 Lunge:-   Place your hands and knees on the floor, keeping your back level. Move your right foot into the space between your hands. Move your right ribs toward the bent leg, lengthening and aligning your spine parallel to the inner edge of your thigh. Hang your head forward and tuck your chin in. If you feel discomfort, go into a lesser angle.   Breathe easily in this pose for 30 seconds to three minutes, longer if you have the time. Then push on the floor with your hands, slowly backing out of the pose to prevent gripping in the back muscles. Do the other side. *Benefits: Helps sciatica, and back and neck pain. Relieves anxiety and related tensions, creating a state of greater mental clarity. #4 Rotated Stomach Pose :- Lie on your back and hug both knees against your chest, with your hands or forearms around your shins. Then extend your arms down to the floor and out to your sides so that they form a 45 degree angle to your body. Roll your bent legs and your hips to the left, laying your legs on the floor. Slowly rotate your head to the left, pausing to breathe 1 to 2 minutes, then turn your head to the right. Breathe for another 1 to 2 minutes, then bring your knees to center and do the other side. *Benefits: Soothes the nervous system; helps relieve headaches, tension in the spine and neck, indigestion, insomnia, lower back pain, and sciatica. Massages the internal organs, stimulating the metabolism and improving digestion. An excellent preparatory pose for meditation.

    Eid Mubarak to all those who observed Ramadan! The moon was sighted on Wednesday in Saudi Arabia, which means that Eid al-Fitr, or the “festival of breaking of the fast,” began today. Though a day-long holiday, some countries will observe Eid al-Fitr tomorrow instead. The festival marks end of Ramadan for Muslims and is celebrated with feasts, family gatherings and large groups gathering together for united prayer. Regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam, Ramadan is the period when Muslims fast every day from sunrise to sunset. They refrain from consuming food, drink and engaging in sexual relations. It also includes the increased offering of prayers and recitation of the Quran.
