Vijayadashami, also known as Dussehra, represents the triumph of truth over falsehood and is celebrated with great enthusiasm across the country. It falls on the tenth day of the bright half of the Ashwin month, marking the defeat of Ravana by Lord Shri Ram and Mahishasura by Mother Durga. This year, Dussehra falls on Tuesday, October 24th.
Traditionally, Ravana effigies are burnt on Dussehra. There’s an upcoming lunar eclipse on October 28, and here are ten important eclipse-related questions to consider.
Two auspicious yogs, Vriddhi Yog and Ravi Yog, will be present on Dussehra. These are considered highly beneficial in astrology, and actions taken during these times are believed to bring success. Ravi Yog will be from 06:27 AM to 03:28 PM, and Vriddhi Yog will start after 03:40 PM.
The Vijay Muhurta for Ravana Dahan, the burning of Ravana’s effigy, will last for 45 minutes, starting at 01:58 PM and ending at 02:43 PM. The afternoon Puja timings are from 01:13 PM to 03:28 PM, lasting for 2 hours and 15 minutes.
