Vijayadashami is considered to be the auspicious day for the beginning of education. It is remarked as an important day in the academic calendars of schools. Parents prefer to start the education of their tots in any stream, art, music, academics.etc.

Each and everyone have their own believes on commencing the education on the day. A survey conducted among kinder gardens reveals that there is rise in the admissions during the period. As such they are reserving seats for the same.

Vijayadashami literally means “Victory of Dashmi”, dashmi is the tenth lunar day of hindu calendar month. It is also called Dussehra. The harvest season begins at this time and so the Mother Goddess is invoked to start the new harvest season and reactivate the vigour and fertility of the soil. This is done through religious performances and rituals which are thought to invoke cosmic forces that rejuvenate the soil. Many people of the Hindu faith observe through social gatherings and food offerings to the gods at home and in temples throughout Nepal and India.

 

The victory of Rama over Ravana is another significant reason to celebrate Vijayadashami. As such the nine days of Vijayadashami is considered really auspicious and the devotees take fasting in these days.

Beginning in an auspicious day will considerably give confidence and energy for our success.
