Dussehra Puja

Burning life size effigies of Ravana, Kumbhakaran and Meghnath


Life size effigies of Ravana, Kumbhakaran and Meghanath would be made for this puja and would be burnt, thus signifying taking away all kinds of (evil elements, enemies, Dosha, diseases, failures, worries, miseries, fights, laziness, ego, accidents and negativity) from your life.

The main object of bruning these effigies is that of vanquishing evil over good. It is on this day, Shri Ram killed the ten headed demon, Ravan. For that reason, this day is also referred as Vijaya Dashami (victorious day). Thus in order to celebrate this victory, huge effigies of Ravan, his brother Kumbhkaran and son Meghanath filled with crackers, are burnt with stroke of an arrow.

Burning their effigies also represent the different aspects of our life:
Kumbhkaran : Brother of Ravana, represents the laziness inside us, we all are lazy at some point. Kumbhkaran was very huge in size and used to sleep for several days and days. Once we overcome this laziness, we realize the huge potential within us.
Meghnath : Son of Ravana, had very high proven skills, he won the war against Indra. He represents the ego inside us. No matter whatever we achieve, we should never let the ego ride our self.
Ravana : Represents the evil tendencies within us. We have to constantly burn them over and over again. This is the last step in realization of our true self.
