Durga Puja In India

Introducing the Moscow Durga Puja…

30 years ago, in the midst of the cold of Moscow,Russia, some homesick, enterprising, and strong-willed Indians came together with the vision of having a Durga Puja on this foreign land.Conquering all odds – be it logistical constraints or the unavailability of Puja items (samagri) – the first Puja was organised successfully, inaugurated by Swami Lokeswarananda of Ramakrishna Mission.

Over the years,the event has grown in scale, and is today a true melting pot of cultures. Our Russian friends, including Russian Academicians, Orientalists, and Indophiles, are an integral part of our Puja – theyadore India, find our colourful festivals fascinating, queue up for pratima darshan just as enthusiastically, and savour bhog and prasad along with us!

The absence of Shiuli or Kash Phoolin this land notwithstanding, the excitement and commitment towards the festival and rituals is in no way less than back home. What makes the Moscow Durga Puja special is that unlike most Probasi Pujas, organized only over the weekend, we take pride in conducting the Puja in its entirety on the actual dates as per the Bengali lunar calendar. Swami Jyotirupananda, founder of the Moscow Ramakrishna Vedanta Centre, has been conducting the Puja for the past many years.

Durga Puja is not only a spiritual or religious event, but also a social-cultural affair. Our celebrations are dotted with numerous cultural activities, comprising of performances, both by in-house as well as guest artists – in song, dance, and other art forms. Contests and quiz events are conducted with a special focus on children. Aaratrika, our annual festive magazine is also released on this occasion.

This year we celebrate our 30th Durga Puja! We welcome you to yet another fun-packed five-day long event. On this auspicious occasion we cordially invite you all to join with family and friends for our Durga Puja celebrations.
