Dussehra Celebration

Dussehra, also referred to as Vijayadashami, Dasara, Durga-Visarjan, or Dusshera in Hindu culture is celebrated just after the nine days of Navratri. This notable festival begins on the first day of the waning moon in Ashwin month and ends on the tenth day which falls either in September or October as per the Gregorian calendar. In 2021, Dussehra falls on Friday, 15 October.

Durga Visarjan

Besides, celebrating Dusshera in the evening, Durga Visarjan also happens during the daytime which is considered as the tenth day of the Navratri. Therefore, according to the Hindu calendar, Durga Visarjan is glorified as the last day of Navratri that is celebrated after auspicious nine days of Durga puja among the Hindu admirers. History says: As per Hindu Puranas, this revered day also showcases the triumph of Mother Durga over the buffalo demon Mahishasura after fighting for nine nights and ten days.

Vijaya Dasami

Durga Visarjan/Dussehra is also termed as Vijaya Dasami or Ayudhapuja. It is depicted in Ramayana texts that on this venerated day Lord Rama and Laxman killed the Ravana since he had abducted Goddess Sita. Thus, in Indian culture, Vijaya Dasami is the solemnization of the immortal victory of good over evil after 9 nights of penance.
