Written by Ashish Sharma

Hindu Festival Vijayadashmi also called Dasara celebrates the victory of good over evil.which comes on the 10th day of the Shukla Paksha )of the month of Ashvin (Ashwayuja), according to the Hindu calendar.This year it’s coming on 30th September. And Shubh mahurat is at 14:08 and 14:55 As per the Hindu mythology, it’s celebrated for god Rama’s victory over the demon king Ravana and the triumph of good over evil.On the other side, it has spiritual significance too. It symbolizes about Eliminating evil inside you and about having reverence for all aspects of life and even for the things and objects that contribute to our wellbeing.

Vijaydashmi falls on 10th day of Navratri.The nine holy days of Navratri are classified into p three basic qualities of humans tamas, rajas and sattva. The first three days of Navratri are tamas, where the goddess is fierce, like Durga and Kali. The next three days are of Goddess Lakshmi related – gentle but materially oriented goddesses. The last three days are dedicated to Saraswati, which is Sattva. It is related to knowledge and enlightenment. Investing in any of these makes the life of a person in that way. Tamas represents power, Rajas represents financial gains and Satva represents Enlightenment and Knowledge.On the tenth, after Navratri is Vijayadashami that means you have conquered all these three qualities. and don’t invest in these 3 qualities then you came out as a winner finally you will get liberated from the materialistic world.

In India Dussehra always full of dances and plays usually called Ramlila where the whole community mixed, met and mingled. After globalization and societies inclined towards western culture we have lost this festival’s charm Otherwise, Dussehra was always very vibrant. Even now it is still so in many places, but not in every part of the country. We need to bring it back and save our culture.
