During Navratri, followers keep fast for nine days and keep refrain from eating non-vegetarian food, drinking alcohol, avoid onion and garlic and engage only in spiritual performings. Since each day is dedicated to nine different forms of Maa Durga, the rituals and offerings vary too.

Today, on October 6, Durga Ashtami is celebrated by devotees. Kanya Puja or Kanjak Puja is conducted to worship nine young girls as nine forms of Goddess Durga, also known as Navadurga. The ritual of Kanya Puja is believed in the universal creative forces to be the female gender. Legend has it that it was on the ninth day of Navaratri that Shakti had taken the form of Goddess Durga, on the request of the Gods to kill the demon. As per Hindu philosophy, these girls are considered as the manifestation of the natural force of creation.
