Today, the festival of Vijaya Dasami - Greetings to allVijayadasami is celebrated on the last day of Navratri to celebrate the success of Devi in the war against Mahishasura.
There is some inner meaning in everything followed by our elders. Accordingly this festival also.
Dasha Hara is a Sanskrit word which means removal of the ten bad qualities within you:
Kama vasana (Lust)
Mada (Over Pride)
Hence, also known as Vijaydashami, signifying 'Vijaya' over these ten bad qualities.
