Vijayadashami – Maa Durga

The tenth day of Sharadiya Navratri is Vijayadashami

This culminates the 10-day worship of the different forms of the Divine Mother Goddess.  It marks the victory of Maa Durga over the demon Mahisasur, who she later grants a pardon and releases him from his mortal suffering.

It is symbolic for whoever can achieve complete acceptance of all aspects of their self – light and dark – can destroy the demon within them.  The same negative aspects that affect our life, can become a companion towards spiritual growth and enlightenment.

शुभ विजयादशमी  (May you have a Blessed Vijayadashmi)
