Vijayadashami 2023: Vijayadashami is celebrated after worshiping Mata Rani as per the rituals for 9 days of Navratri. This day is celebrated as the victory of truth over untruth. The festival of Dussehra is also celebrated on this day in which effigies of Ravana, Meghnath and Kumbhakarna are burnt.

Just wait for a few more days, then people will welcome Maa Durga with great pomp. This year, as soon as Pitru Paksha ends on 14th October, Navratri will begin in which Maa Durga will be worshiped as per rituals for 9 days. 9 forms of Maa Durga are worshiped during Navratri. It is believed that during this period, Mother Durga comes to earth for 9 days and resides in every house. In such a situation, by worshiping Queen Maka with true heart, one gets her blessings and every wish is fulfilled.

Vijayadashami is celebrated on the tenth day after 9 days of Navratri. This day is also celebrated as Dussehra. Symbolic of the victory of truth over untruth, this day has great significance in Hindu religion. In West Bengal, after Durga Puja, Maa Durga immersion is done with great pomp on this day. But do you know why this day is so special? Why is the tenth day after Navratri called Vijayadashami, let us know the reason.

Mother Durga had killed Mahishasura.

Actually Vijayadashmi is celebrated as the festival of victory of truth over untruth. It is believed that on this day, Mother Katyayani Durga had killed Mahishasura after seeking help from the gods. According to beliefs, before this there was a war between Goddess Durga and Mahishasura for 9 days and on the tenth day she killed Mahishasura with the trident given by Lord Shiva. Due to this, Mother Durga is also called Mahishasura Mardini. This day is celebrated as Vijayadashami because Mahishasura was killed on the tenth day. Mata Rani also has a name Vijaya.

That's why Dussehra is celebrated

Apart from this, the festival of Dussehra is also celebrated today in which effigies of Ravana, Meghnad and Kumbhakarna are burnt. It is believed that on this day Lord Rama killed Ravana, after which this day started being celebrated as the victory of good over evil.
