Ayudha Pooja wishes to all our customers

Posted by Shrinidhi Hande I 15 October, 2010 archives 

We at Marg would like to wish all our customers, employees and vendors on the occasion of Ayudha Pooja.


Ayudha Pooja usually comes in the ninth day of Navratri Festival, mainly in south India. This year October 16th is our day to celebrate the Aydha pooja with the worship of our tools. Saraswathi Pooja and Ayuda Pooja are observed on the same day in South India. In this auspicious day students offer their Books to the Goddess Saraswathi. It is popular belief that students are forbidden to read on that day; the next day which is Vijaya Dashami is when they should re-open their text books and read thereby invoking the blessings of the Goddess of learning.

Goddess Durga carries numerous weapons which were given to her by various male deities. Therefore there is a belief that the weapons carried by Durga represent the various forces in Nature – Durga’s energy rests in these weapons.

Which tool one keeps during Ayudha Puja depends on his/her trade – this can be laptop, desktop, cycle, autorikshaw, screwdriver, sewing machine etc. Nowadays, people also do not use vehicles on the day. Cars, scooters and bikes are also kept for puja.

After the poojas are carried out the machines are left to rest for the day, following which the prasadams consisting of puffed rice, fruits, sweets made of jaggery and “sundal” (boiled lentils) are distributed among everyone.
