Dussehra is the celebration of the grand victory of Lord Ramachandra over the mighty demon Ravana .And of course this is a factual historical event that took place in Sri Lanka, during the Treta Yuga, but know that it is also a lila, the pastimes of the Lord, that can take place within your heart when you take shelter of Lord Ramachandra. And therefore on this day, in preparation for this day, we should truly meditate on what this lila truly means to us. What it means to our life? The symbol of Kama(lust), Ravana ,who is dwelling in the heart of all living souls and is the single deadly enemy of every living being can all be defeated by the mighty glory of Lord Ramachandra. When we remember Lord Rama, He appears within our heart. By remembering Lord Rama. He kills all the demons within our heart.
