History of Vijayadashami

According to Ram Charit Manas, composed by Tulsidas, the Sri Lankan demon king Ravana kidnapped Sita, wife of Lord Shri Ram, during exile. He took them to his kingdom Lanka and kept captive. Lord Rama started searching for Sita ji with Lakshman ji. On the way, Jatayu told him that Ravana had taken Sita to Lanka after killing him.

After this Sriram got Bajrangbali Hanuman, Jamwant, Sugriva and all the monkeys. Combining all this, he formed an army. With whom he fought with Ravana. The demon Ravana, who is called the ten-headed Dashanan, was killed on the tenth day of the war. Since then Dashami is celebrated as Vijayadashami. The effigy of Ravana with 10 heads is burnt across the country.

Slaughter of Mahishasura

In addition to Ravana combustion, Goddess Durga killed the demon Mahishasura on this day. Mother Durga killed Mahishasura on the tenth day of Ashwin Shukla. After this, all the Gods worshiped Mother Durga on her victory. Therefore, this date is also called Vijayadashami or Vijaya Dashami.

Since, on the day of Dussehra, Mother Durga killed Mahishasura and Shri Ram won over Ravana, therefore, consider this day as a festival of the victory of good over evil. Shri Ram is a symbol of dignity and ideal, while mother Durga is a symbol of power. Through this festival, people learn to live with strength, dignified and high ideals.
