      Hare Krishna Friends,


      Wishing you all and your family members, Happy Dussehra or Vijaya Dashami. It is celebrated every year in the Hindu Vikrami Calender month of Ashwin (September / October).

      The day marks the triumph of Lord Rama over Demon king Ravana. On this day, Rama killed Ravana and freed his wife Sita after leading an army of monkeys. Sita was taken by Ravana from Rama's Ashram to avenge the insult of his sister. The war against Ravan lasted for ten days. Sita had been returned to her husband Ram and they now make their way to Ayodhya in triumph and glory. Thus, it is on the Diwali day that Lord Ram, in the Treta Yug, returned to his capital Ayodhya after the exile of fourteen years.

      This is also the festival marking end of Navaratri and the immersion of Durga idols which are worshipped for nine days prior to Dussehra.
