2015 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 Ashtami Puja, Sandhi Puja and Navami Puja are done together on Ashtami Tithi. However Durga Balidan is always done on Navami Tithi.

Devotees who abstain from animal sacrifice perform symbolic Bali with vegetables like banana, cucumber or pumpkin. For Brahmins any type of animal sacrifice is prohibited by scriptures and Brahmin community does only symbolic Bali. Even the famous Belur Math in West Bengal does symbolic Bali with white pumpkin and sugar cane during Navami Puja. White pumpkin used for Durga Balidan is known as Kushmanda (कूष्माण्ड).
