As you may know, Vijayadashami is the culmination of the Navaratri (nine nights) and marks the day when Sri Rama vanquished Ravana. The day marks the victory of good over evil. It was on this day that the Pandavas ended their period of disguise and removed their weapons from the Shami tree. The Hindu tradition has laid great stress on victory. This victory is a surety when Dharma is upheld. Keeping the special significance of this day in the Hindu tradition, Dr. Keshav Baliram Hedgewar founded the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on Vijayadashami day in 1925 at Nagpur.
Come join us with your friends for a unique Dussehra Celebration!
