Importance of Vijaya Muhurat


The festival of Dussehra is considered as one of the holiest days of the year. It is known to be one of the auspicious times as per HIndu mythology, other muhurats being Chaitra Shukla Pratipada, Ashwin Shukla Dashmi, Vaishakh Shukla Tritiya, and Kartik Shukla Pratipada (half muhurat). This period is best to start any work/business/job, although there are specific rituals to be followed for certain ceremonies. 

It is believed that when stars start to appear during sunset, that exact time is called VIjay Muhurat. This particular time period is auspicious to carry out any ritual or puja ceremony. As believed, this was the exact time Lord Ram chose to start off a war with evil King Raavan. At the same time, a tree named Shami reshaped itself as Arjun’s bow called Gandeeva Dhanush.

Legend of Vijayadashmi


Accordingly, Maa Durga fought the evil demon Mahishasura for nine days, and killed him on the tenth day, thus protecting Earth and all of universe. 

Another popular legend is that on this day, Lanka King Raavan was killed by Lord Ram, thus the name Dussehra. Every year the effigy of Raavan with ten heads are burned to mark the end of evil, greed, illusion, jealousy, selfishness and arrogance.

AstroSage wishes its readers a very happy and fulfilling Dussehra 2017!
