Dussehra 2018 Date and Significance

Coming on the heels of the vibrant, pulsating festival of Navaratri is the festival of Dussehra, which marks the victory of good over evil. This year Dussehra festival falls on October 19, 2018. Dussehra is celebrated around 20 days prior to Diwali, the festival of lights. There are many legends in Hindu folklore which recount the stories and significance of the Dussehra festival. The most widespread legend is that Dussehra festival, which is also known as Vijaya Dashami, is the day on which Lord Rama killed the 10-headed demon king Ravana, who had adbucted Lord Rama's wife Sita, and it signaled the victory of good over evil.

Shubh Muhurat on Dussehra

 
The nine day Navratri Festival culminates in Dussehra. Durga puja is also a part of Navratri celebrations. People finally immerse the Goddesses' idols on Dussehra in West Bengal and other eastern parts of the country. It is said that any time on the Dussehra is auspicious. We don't need to see any special muhurat for buying something new (like property, vehicle, etc) on Dussehra day as the entire day is full of positivity and  good luck. 

Legends of Dussehra

Ramlila And The Burning Of The Effigies Of Ravana

Dussehra festival is celebrated all over the country by organizing fairs, enacting the Ramlila, bursting of firecrackers and finally the burning of the effigies of Ravana, and his brother Kumbhakarana and son Meghnad. Ramlila is a drama enacted on stage which depicts the most momentous events of the great epic Ramayan right from the time of the birth of Lord Rama, the kidnapping of Sita by Ravana, the meeting with Hanuman and Sugreev and finally the slaying of the demon king Ravana.

Goddess Durga Slays The Fierce Mahishasura

As per another legend, Dussehra is celebrated with great fervor in the eastern parts of the country, chiefly in Kolkata, to observe the killing of the feared demon Mahishasura by Goddess Durga after a long-drawn-out battle. For four days during Dussehra celebration, people pray to an idol of Goddess Durga performing various rituals, and on the fifth day the idol is submerged in a river amidst great pomp and ceremony. It commemorates the return of the Goddess to her husband Lord Shiva's abode on Mount Kailash after slaying Mahishasura. The symbolic message of Dussehra is that we too should keep our distance from evil forces and only stay in the company of good people. The power of Mother Goddess is infinite.

The Tree That Protects The Weapons Of the Pandavas

Yet another legend about Dussehra has its roots in the other great epic of India, the Mahabharata. When the five Pandava brothers, who each had a distinctive weapon, are banished to the forest, they hide their weapons in a tree. On their return from exile, they find their weapons still safe in the tree, so they worship the tree before going back to do battle with their sworn enemies the Kauravas, which they eventually win with the help of Lord Krishna.
 

Auspicious Day To Buy Vehicles And Property

Dussehra usually comes in the months of September or October immediately after the nine-day festivities of Navaratri. It marks the ending of the monsoon season, and is also called Vijaya Dashami. Dussehra in Sanskrit literally means 'remover of bad fate', while for some it marks the time to break their nine-day fast of Navaratri. Dussehra is also considered a very auspicious day for buying vehicles and property.
