Parar Puja ” ( Puja of an area)

In this era of theme puja , different puja committee creates different themes like a beautiful Mandir or village of Bengal . These might be very beautiful in creation but it not seems to match with the identity of that particular area.

So this time we wanted to created a theme “ Para Puja” . In this we wanted to show a identity of a para (area ) and their specialty of an area in organizing the Durga Puja.
We created a specific identity of our para (area) and to bring a Durga Puja in the true form of a theme puja.
The whole idea was conceived & created by Suthanta pal to provide a Durga Puja of different sort.

In the next we see Sthiti , were living beings in the form of insects, plants takes birth.

This year the idea is to spread peace. In this message they encourage larger masses to appeal for peace and thus avoiding & refusing the path of violence. Buddhism as a religion have been always campaigner to self resilience and peace for mankind. This year they share the influence the Buddhism in Hinduism in the from of their teaching , art & culture.

Due to spread of Buddhism in the many southeastern countries , as fusion culture and art form of Hindu & Buddhism. They represent a fusion of a Hindu & Buddhist architectural piece of art in the form of a mandir . We see similar types of beautiful mandir in different southern eastern countries. They again go back to nature to create this architecture by using bamboo from Bengal to create the intricate designs of the art form. It gives us a beautiful representation of Buddhist monastery and we also see mother durga dressed in similar form. - View Gallery

We use straw , a transparent medium and its being highlighted by colored wool threads. We create motifs of different form of these and beautiful folk art to ornament the pandal. The iron structures will be placed into the different part of the venue. Different design are used to cover & decorate the iron structure.

Soil has always been worshiped as mother from ancient times. Soil’s fertility provides the harvest for life. The harvest provides unlimited food to millions of living beings. A new born is nurtured and brought up in mother’s Love.

We in this year have narrated the story of goodness & strength of nature’s fertility. We find similar strength and goodness in Mother Durga. So Mother durga in the form of Maa Chandi have been represented as godess of crop & harvest in our puja.

With reference from the manuscripts & the imagination of artists a duo of soil and sky is being created in our pandal. Free and different thought of the Environmental artist forum have been transferred into creation of our pandal and the deity.

Devi durga is spreading the goodness of creation after bringing end to evil.
The soil is represented by open earthen pots denoting thirty earth looking towards clouds to brings rains for fertility & harvest.

And clouds also responds to the call for creation & harvesting. We worship the power of harvest which brings happiness & prosperity by highlighting the Eternal duo of clouds and soils.

“Ekaihang Bahushyam Projajeyo”
(I am One and I will become Many)

Tridhara Sammilani's this year's thought is an unique experience of the One and only 'Brahmo'.

We all know that 'Parama Brahmo' is an universal truth. It is self evolved and complete by its own self. It is undisturbed, static, and unchanging whilst swifter than mind. It initiates creation and its presence is felt in each and every being of this universe. According to the inscriptions of the Upanishad, there are two contradictory sides to 'Brahmo'. One is its 'Swamp' way and the other is the 'Tathastha' way.

To fulfill the needs of creation it makes a promise or 'Brahmo Sankalpa' as "Ekaihang Bahuslryam Projajeyo" meaning "I am One and I will become Many". No creation is possible without the unision of the Purush and Nan shakti. This initiated the innovation of the right hand portion of the Parameshwar as the 'Purush' or 'Anadi' and the left hand portion as the 'Prakriti' or 'Maya'. This Prakriti is of exquisite beauty and extreme power. Purush and Prakriti then started meditating and water came out of their bodies and 'Khirod Sagar' was created. They then slept in this water body for many years and thus came to be known as 'Narayan' and 'Narayani'. ['Nar' meaning water and 'Ayan' meaning sleeping.] At this moment of time there was nothing except the Purush and the Prakriti. Then gradually from this Abyakto Prakriti Mahatatwo was created. This Mahatatwo was empowered by the Trigunas such as the Satya, Rojo and Tama. From Mahatatwo came Ahankar, from Ahankar came Panchatanmantra, from Panchatanmantra came Panchabhut, from Panchabhut came Panchagyanandriya and Panchakarmendriya. Narayan then got enlightened by all these tatwas and went to sleep on the Anantasalil of the Khirod Sagar.

'Brahmo' integrated itself from the emissions of the Hiranyagarbha and got established as the 'Brahma'. 'Brahma' then created the self mutating, egg laying and the birth giving beings from the different parts of its mind and body. 'Maha Saraswati' or 'Brahmani' became the female manifestation of 'Brahma' and expressed itself as the perfect idol of 'Satya Gunn'. Hiranyagarbha or the 'Brahmanda' then divided itself into two - the Space and the Earth. This was how the Earth, Space and Water got created.

To maintain these creations 'Brahmo' reincarnated itself as 'Vishnu'. 'Maha Lakshmi' became the female manifestation of'Vishnu' and expressed itself as the perfect idol of 'Rojo Gunn'.

Whenever there is creation there has to be destruction, so 'Brahmo' again re-establishes itself as the 'Maheshwar'. 'Mahakali' thus became the female manifestation of 'Maheshwar' and expressed itself as the perfect idol of 'Tama Gunn'. View Gallery
