Dusshera 2021 Puja Rituals | Vijaya Dashami

Vijaydashmi of the year 2021, or also known as Dusshera, falls on the Dashmi of the Shukla Paksha in the Ashwini month, which falls on the date of 15th of October. Dussehra is regarded as a sign of good triumphing over evil. Lord Rama, a dignified man, murdered Ravana on this day. As a result, it is known as Vijaya Dashami in many locations; nevertheless, Ravana is also adored in various parts of the country. Ma Durga had defeated the demon Mahishasura on this day. Before Dussehra, the Ramleela is a 14-day performance in which numerous characters portray the Leela or life of Lord Ram on stage. Ravana is murdered on the final day, and Ramleela comes to an end. The day of Dussehra is believed to be extremely auspicious, and hence if someone can choose an auspicious date for marriage, then they can also marry on this day which will be considered to be very fortunate.

 

Spiritual Significance of Vijaya Dasami 2021

It commemorates the day when Lord Rama defeated Ravana, Lanka's ten-headed evil ruler. This day also commemorates the death of Mahishasur, the demon king, who was assassinated by Goddess Durga on this day.

Durga was formed by the Gods by combining their spiritual energies in order to produce an ultimate ‘shakti' capable of annihilating Mahishasur, according to legend.

This day commemorates Goddess Durga's return to Kailash following a ten-day stay at her parents' home on Earth. Mother Durga and her four children—Lakshmi, Saraswati, Kartikeya, and Ganesha—visit their paternal home every year.

Jaya and Vijaya, two of her'sakhis,' or companions, accompany her. In Mahabharata, Vijaya Dashami commemorates the Pandavas' victory over the Kauravas and the end of their exile. It also marks the start of the harvest celebration in India.

It signifies that Ravana Dahan (Dussehra Festival) is only 46 minutes long. Ravana Dahan (Dussehra Festival) symbolises the triumph of good over evil. India's Best Dussehra Celebration. On the day of Dussehra, numerous localities burn effigies of Ravana, Meghnath, and Kumbhakaran. Dussehra celebrations in Himachal Pradesh's Kullu, Mysore, Delhi, and Ambala's Barada are spectacular. Dussehra is rarely celebrated in the same joyful manner in other parts of the world as it is in Kullu. It is celebrated at such a great levek that its magnificence can only be appreciated after one witnesses it.

In the Kullu's Dhalpur field, the Dussehra festival is held for seven days. People go from all over the world to attend the Dhalpur Fair, which is also attended by the local Gods and Goddesses. Dussehra is celebrated with considerable ceremony in Mysore, Karnataka. Large elephants are decorated and processions are held in the vibrant metropolis.

The Dussehra celebrations in Delhi are unique and exceptional; enormous statues of Ravan, Kumbhakaran, and Meghnath are erected on this day.

Preparations for this big event have been on for a long time, and key figures such as the prime minister and chief minister have lit the fuse. The grandeur of the effigies burned in Ramlila Maidan and Subhash Park in Delhi can only be observed. Let us now discuss Ambala's Barada Park's Dussehra. Every year at Ambala's Barada, the tallest effigy of Ravana is burned. Barada's Ravan has been listed in the Limca Book of Records five times. Ravana's effigy stood 210 feet tall last year, making it the country's tallest Ravana statue.
