Happy Dussera Or Vijayadashami

LABONY EdittedIdol of Goddess Durga of Labony Estate, Salt Lake City, Kolkata, India. In my opinion this is the best of all idols. Of course there will be difference of opinion because some of the idols of some area or Club adorn real Gold ornaments. But this idols not wearing any Gold ornaments but having lot of fine works all around on her, more over the face is divine.

Happy Diwali or Deepavali

1-Lady with lamps

There are various origins attributed to this festival. In Bengal, the festival is dedicated to the worship of Goddess Kali. In some parts it is also celebrated to commemorate the day on which Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya with His wife Sita and brother Laxmana after defeating Demon King Ravana. Some part of India celebrates it as the marriage of Goddess Lakshmi with Lord Vishnu. These are the historical significance of the festival.

Little clay lamps are lit as an offering to God to ward off evil spirits and to usher prosperity. This is also to welcome the new year on the following day, when businessmen start their new account books. It is an auspicious day for new beginnings. This is a festival of brotherhood, peace and harmony too because people from all religions are celebrating Deepavali in India.

May the divine light of Diwali shine with Peace, prosperity, happiness & good health in your life. HAPPY DIWALI.pradip

Happy Vijaya Dasami

BJ

Vijayadasami (Sanskrit: विजयदशमी) also known as Dussehra (Sanskrit: दशहरा) an important Hindu  festival celebrated in a variety of ways in India and abroad. Dasha Hara is a Sanskrit word which means removal of the following ten bad qualities (evils) within you:

  • Ahankara* (Ego)
  • Amanavta* (Cruelty)
  • Anyaaya* (Injustice)
  • Kama vasana* (Lust)
  • Krodha* (Anger)
  • Lobha* (Greed)
  • Mada* (Over Pride)
  • Matsara* (Jealousy)
  • Moha* (Attachment)
  • Swartha* (Selfishness)

Hence, also known as ’Vijaydashami’ signifying  ”Vijaya or Win” over these ten bad qualities (evils).

Happy Vijaya Dasami !!
