Bijaya Dashami today
KATHMANDU- Today, Hindus across the country are observing Bijaya Dashami today.
The 10th day of Bada Dashain is celebrated all over the country with great enthusiasm by receiving ‘tika’ and ‘jamara’ and blessings from elders.
Although the auspicious hour or the Mul Sait for receiving ‘Devi Prasad’ has been fixed at 9:51 am, the entire day after the immersion of the Goddess is auspicious for that purpose.
The worship of Durga Bhawani at Dashainghars over nine days concludes formally on the day of Bijaya Dashami after the Abhishek or sprinkling of holy water takes place marking the beginning of tika.
People receive tika and jamara till the full moon day. Tika and jamara are considered the auspicious blessings of the goddess Nava Durga and they signify prosperity.
It is believed that one need not seek an auspicious hour if one undertakes any new assignment, campaign or journey on the auspicious day of Bijaya Dashami.
The Vijaya Dashami festival is celebrated in commemoration of the victory of truth over evil and the victory of divine forces over demonic forces.
