Vijayadashami means victory, which is a festival of the victory of good over bad, God Rama over demon Ravana, The triumph of the festival continue for many days. Some people say that this is the victory on the tenth day, and some think as victory against bad eveil demon with ten head. It is also known as Dasahara/Dusshera/Dasara/Dussehra or Dashain is a major Hindu festival celebrated at the end of Navaratri every year.
It is observed on the tenth day in the Hindu calendar month of Ashvin or Kartik, the sixth and seventh month of the Hindu Calendar respectively, which typically falls in the Georgian months of September and October.
Vijayadashami is observed for different reasons and celebrated differently in various parts of South Asia. In the southern, eastern, northeastern, and some northern states of India, Vijayadashami marks the end of Durga Puja, remembering goddess Durga's victory over the demon Mahishasura to restore and protect dharma. In the northern-central and western states, the festival is synonymously called Dussehra (also spelled Dasara, Dashahara). In these regions, it marks the end of "Ramlila" and remembers God Rama's victory over the Ravan. On the very same occasion; in Mahabharta, Arjuna alone decimated 1 lakh+ soldiers & defeated all Kuru warriors including Bhishma, Drona, Ashwatthama, Karna, Kripa etc.- there by significantly quoting the natural example of victory of good (Dharma) over evil (Adharma). Alternatively it marks a reverence for one of the aspects of goddess Devi such as Durga or Saraswati.
在南亞的各個地區，Vijayadashami從不同的源由，並以不同的方式慶祝。在印度的南部，東部，東北和一些北部州，Vijayadashami表示著Durga Puja的結束，回憶Durga女神擊敗水牛惡魔Mahishasura來恢復和護法。在中北部和西部各州，該節日同義為Dussehra（也稱Dashaara、Dasara）。在這些地區，它代表著“Ramlila”的結束，並銘記Rama神戰勝了Ravana。在同一場合，僅Arjuna一個人就殺死了超過10萬士兵，並擊敗了所有Kuru族戰士，包括Bhishma, Drona, Ashwatthama, Karna, Kripa等-在那裡，他明顯印證了善良（Dharma達摩）戰勝邪惡（Adharma）的自然慣例。另外，它代表著對Durga或Saraswati等Devi女神的尊敬。
Vijayadashami celebrations include processions to a river or ocean front that carry clay statues of Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Ganesha and Kartikeya, accompanied by music and chants, after which the images are immersed into the water for dissolution and a goodbye. Elsewhere, on Dasara, the towering effigies of Ravana symbolizing the evil are burnt with fireworks marking evil's destruction. Except that, many people would arrange around with plants or blood of animals, there are also other events like dancing carnival. The festival also starts the preparation for one of the most important and widely celebrated Diwali, the festival of lights, which is celebrated twenty days after the Vijayadashami.
