The last 24 minutes of Mahastami and first 24 minutes of Mahanavami is the time of Sandhi puja --- the pinnacle in the graph of Durgotsava celebrations . A time when Devi is worshipped as ferocious Chamunda . Usually this auspicious time falls on the dead hour of night when the whole world is asleep . Mother is worshipped with 108 lotuses and 108 lamp offerings . This is the time when she killed Mahishasura . The exact moment of confluence of the two 'tithis' is marked by a sacrifice or balidaan .
