Vijaya Dasami - Dussehra

Vijaya Dasami:
Vijaya Dasami or Dussehra is a day of celebration. Mata Durga defeats the mighty demon Mahisasur on this day. It heralds a new beginning of time where Good triumphs over Evil. 

Today is also called 'Dasha-Hara' or victory over bad fate or bad period. Vijaya Dasami is thus a very auspicious or 'Shubh' day. Its a day when people take major decisions of life..e.g. big purchases are made, homes are bought and 'Griha Pravesh' or start of living in a new house is begun, businesses are started and so on....

Today is a day of joy, hope, courage, confidence, success, and new beginnings...


Durga Aarti:
No prayer or worship is complete without Aarti. Ma Durga Aarti gives a brief summary of the greatness of Mata Durga. We are steeped in her kindness and live in her blessings. We bid her farewell as we wait for her to come again next year.

  1. very nice post! It's very useful, as you have provided the complete information regarding Goddess Durga. During navarathri festival my mother and me offer prayers to maa Durga by chanting durga mantra with devotion.
