Happy Dussehra

Today is Vijaya Dashami (Dussehra) and it is the last day of Durga pujas, and like every year, we think Durga puja gets over too fast and too soonL
And like every year, I saw some amazingly beautiful creations this year. I will post some of my favourites in the next few posts.

On the occasion of Vijaya Dashami (Dussehra), I would like to leave you with a message that I received from a friend today:-

Dasha Hara is a Sanskrit word which means removal of ten bad qualities within us:

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

So Vijaya of Dashmi literally means overcoming and defeating these bad qualities.

I wish you a life full of joy and peace. Happy Dussehra.
