Dussehra also known as Vijaydashmi is one of the most important Hindu festivals celebrated in various forms across India and abroad. Dussehra, this name is derived from the Sanskrit words dasha & hara which literally mean the defeat (hara) of ten-headed demon (dashanan) Ravana. This festival signifies the victory of Good over evil. The fascinating part about this festival is witnessing the Ramlila and the burning of huge effigies of Ravana, Kumbhakarna and Meghanath which signifies the Victory of Lord Rama.
But why do we burn them every year? What is the present significance of this festival in our lives? More specifically, what do we learn from this and what do we do after it? tweet
At Present, there is no Ravana but there are some bad qualities which are present in the humans. They are:
Kama vasana (Lust), Krodha (Anger), Moha (Attachment), Lobha (Greed), Mada (Over Pride), Matsara (Jealousy), Swartha (Selfishness), Anyaaya (Injustice), Amanavta (Cruelty), Ahankara (Ego). tweet
Ravana and Lord Rama both had immense knowledge and divine powers. Infact, Ravana is considered as the most Knowledgeable man on this earth born ever. But what made him lose? It was nothing but his bad qualities. No matter how physically weak you are, no matter how bad are your conditions, if you are devoid of the bad qualities aforementioned, you have the potential to achieve anything and everything. Being a better human will not only bring prosperity with time but more importantly it will make you feel good about yourself.
There are issues in the society not because it consists of some bad hypocritical people but because we don’t go against them, because we think only about ourselves and not about others. Lord Rama was a human. We also have the same powers what he possessed. But we cannot feel them until and unless we are devoid of our bad qualities. This Dussehra, let us burn our evils with the burning of the effigies of Ravana, Meghanath and Kumbhakaran.
Every year, on some or the other festival, cartoon movies are released to help the kids learn about our religious super heroes and the power of goodness. On this auspicious occasion of Dussehra, here we have amazing digital artwork by Mr. Ankur Chaudhary from Delhi.
No matter, how powerful the opponent is, your truthfulness is your strength. Rest, all will be taken care of.!! tweet
When God is with me, who can be against me! tweet
Let this celebration not remain limited to just one single day. Each day, there should be a victory of the Good over Evil. tweet
