MAHA NIVEDAN ON VIJAYA DASHAMI

The Last day of Maha Navaratri is called Vijaya Dashami. Vijaya Dashami !!! the day of victory. In the Hindu mythology, Dussehra is considered to be one of the most auspicious time when one's faith towards the good is again established. This festival marks the end of one's evilness, bringing faith, prosperity and good times in a person's life. Vijay Dashmi is one of those festivals which signifies the real meaning of good and symbolises the path of righteousness. Dussehra is one such festival which is celebrated across various states in different forms, but with same enthusiasm, happiness and joy. 

In Andhra Pradesh Vijay Dashmi has a different significance, families exchange gifts (clothes, sweets and other items), sing songs in order to celebrate the festival and share their happiness. Some of the families set up artificial dolls, lamps, flowers outside their homes on the steps specially designed by them. We called this decorating dolls on steps as "Bommala Koluvu".Every year this practice is followed on the very first day of Navratri,and continues till Vijaya Dashami.



I worshipped Goddess Durga in the form of Raja Rajeswari Devi and performed pooja with kumkum and flowers and offered Garelu, Pulihora as Mahanivedan. Here I am sharing the clicks:)


                                            
So, the festival of Dussehra is a time of the new beginning and of belief that any work begun in this time will always have the blessings of God. Hence, from ages, we have been celebrating this festival with full devotion and enthusiasm. This Year I celebrated Mahanavaratri very grand by performing pooja and offered different Naivedyams to Goddess Durga.Hoping that everyone performed the same. 

Wishing you all "HAPPY VIJAYADASHAMI" !!:) meet you all with another interesting recipe, till then bbye:)
