Durga Balidan in 2023
23rd October, Monday
What is Durga Balidan?
Balidan on Maha Navami should always be done on Uday Vyapini Navami. According to Nirnaysindhu, the best time to perform Balidan is Aparahna Kala.
It should be noted that Maha Navami fasting and Puja might fall one day before Durga Balidan depending on the start time of Navami Tithi on the previous day. If Navami Tithi starts before Sanyakal on Ashtami Tithi then both Ashtami Puja and Navami Puja are done on the same day i.e. on Ashtami Tithi. If it happens then Navami Puja are done together on Ashtami Tithi. However Durga Balidan is always done on Navami Tithi.
