Vijaydashmi

Vijaydashmi, or Dusshera which is celebrated on the Dasami of Shukla Paksha in Ashwini month, is being celebrated this year on 19th October. Its auspicious time or muhurat is from 2 hours and 2 mins to 2 hours and 45 minutes. Dussehra is considered a symbol of victory of good over evil. On this day, dignified man Lord Rama slaughtered Ravana. Therefore, it is celebrated in many places as Vijayadashami, however, in many states of the country, Ravana is also worshipped. On this day, Ma Durga had conquered the demon Mahishasura. Ramleela is performed for 14 days before Dussehra, in which the Leela or life of Lord Ram is enacted on stage by various characters. On the last day, Ravana is killed, after which Ramleela ends. Dussehra day is considered to be very good if someone is able to set an auspicious date for marriage, then they can marry on this day too. Now we tell you about the worship method of Dussehra.

During the Dussehra festival, wake up early in the morning, have an early bath and then make round vessels from cow dung and keep in the courtyard.  In these vessels,  as the image of Lord Shiva and his sons and brothers.  In these four utensils, place wet paddy and silver in these and after covering it with a  cloth, worship with incense, flowers and pray to God with a pure heart. After worship, donate food to the Brahmins and the poor, offer them meals, and then after feeding them, you can then eat.
