Dussehra – The tale of DASHA HARA

Happy Dussehra
DASHA HARA is a Sanskrit word that means removal of ten bad qualities within you.

Bhagwan Ram defeats Ravan

On the auspicious occasion of Dussehra, hear the tale of DASHA HARA – the removal of ten wicked qualities that reside within us. These vices are Kama vasana (Lust), Krodha (Anger), Moha (Attachment), Lobha (Greed), Mada (Over-Pride), Matsara (Jealousy), Swartha (Selfishness), Anyaaya (Injustice), Amanavta (Cruelty), and Ahankara (Ego).

As we conclude the nine sacred nights of Navratri, we witness the triumph of good over evil in the celebration of Vijayadashami or Dussehra. It symbolizes victory (Vijaya) over these ten wicked qualities. Like the sun that rises every day, reminding us that light will always conquer darkness, let us embrace this natural order and rejoice in the triumph of good over evil.

This moment is one of jubilation, where we honor the power of good, and the world witnesses its victory over the forces of darkness. May this joyous occasion bring success to your life, and may you overcome all evils with the grace of the divine. As we celebrate this occasion, let us wish our loved ones good health, happiness, and prosperity. Let us chant the mantras of

What does Siddhartha mean

सिद्धार्थ – that’s how we write SIDDHARTHA in Hindi/Sanskrit through the Devanagari script. Following is how this powerful name came into existence.


Noun: सिद्धार्थ (siddhā-rtha)

  • “He who has fulfilled the object (of his coming)”
  • Name of the great Buddha from shakya clan (Siddhartha).
  • One of the names for Bhagwan Shiv among his sahastra naam

Adjective सिद्धार्थ (siddhā-rtha)

  • One who has accomplished an aim or object, successful, prosperous
  • Leading to the goal, efficient, efficacious
  • One whose aim or intention is known

” was the original name of Buddha and a name which is formed of two words “Sidh” whose meaning is “perfect” and “Artha” whose meaning is “purpose” both are from the language of Sanskrit and combined they mean “the one who perfects ( sidh ) his purpose ( artha )”.

~

“Sidh” whose meaning is that which “achieves” and that which is “perfect” then expands and becomes “Siddha” whose meaning is “perfected” and “supernatural” and this is then seen in “Siddhanta” whose meaning is “the end ( anta ) of perfection ( siddha )”.

~

“Sidh” also becomes “Siddhi” whose meaning is “perfection” “skill” and “art” and this is seen in the “Asta Siddhis” which are the “eight ( asta ) perfections ( siddhi )” yogis who can become “larger than a planet” and “smaller than an atom”.

~

“Siddha” whose meaning is “perfection” can be seen in this verse from the Gita where “Siddhaye” and “Siddhanam” are translated as “perfection” the Gita spoken over 5000 years ago, long before the appearance of Buddha and the language of Pali.

~

“Out of the many thousands among men, one may endeavour for perfection, and of those who have achieved perfection, hardly one knows Me in truth.” Gita 7.3

~

“Sidh” expresses that which “binds one ( si ) to the motion ( h ) of light ( d )” as in the “light of the soul” as in the “light of illumination” while its secondary meanings of “beatitude” and “perfection” are an expression of mystical and spiritual states.

~

As it journeys to other languages “Sidh” is seen throughout Europe as “Sidus” a word from Latin whose meanings are “star” “group of stars” and “constellation” and “Sidereal” whose meaning is “starry” “astral” and that which belongs to the “constellations”.

~

Around the early 17th century Gallileo wrote his “Sidereus Nuncius” whose meaning was the “message from the stars” a message which announced his “clusters ( si ) of light ( d )” all of which move around the satellites of Jupiter thus proving the rotation of planets around the stars.

~

“Sidh” expresses the nature of Sanskrit, which expresses the nature of the Vedas, which expresses the nature of the divine, and this can be seen in words such as “Consider” whose meaning is to “observe ( con ) the stars ( sidus )” and also “Desire” which means to “long for ( de ) the stars ( sidus )”.

~

These words from the Ancient language of Sanskrit go back in time over 5000 years, long before the 2500 year old date for Panini, long before the 3500 year old date for the stone tablets of Armana, long before the 4000 year old date for the disappearance of Sarasvati, and long before Buddhism and the language of Pali.

Role of Women in the Sanatan Dharma

The Role of Women in the Sanatan Dharma is held in high regard and it is a unique culture where the Divine is also represented as a woman in Vedic scriptures. However, in the name of so-called “feminism”, the true essence of womanhood has been distorted and led society astray.

We must recognize that the world faces many challenges, and women’s rights are among the most important issues we must address. The greatness of any society can be measured by how it treats its women. Unfortunately, women are often objectified and depicted in negative ways through advertisements and media, which represents a deep-seated mindset that must be eradicated. It is our duty to educate all men, regardless of their age, country, religion, or any other parameter.

We must look back to our Vedic roots, as India’s customs regarding women were severely impacted by centuries of invasions and foreign occupation. The careful protection of Hindu women became essential during those times. However, all aspects of Indian society suffered during the Islamic invasion and the subsequent British slavery and the British-imposed educational system. As a result, the pious role that comes most naturally to most women, that of wife and mother, the children’s first guru, the Shakti of the home, and the preserver-enhancer of the spiritual force field of the home and family, has been effectively disparaged.

Let us not forget the powerful words of the Rig Veda: “May you be empress and lead all.” It is time for us to embrace the true essence of womanhood and empower women to lead the way toward a better tomorrow.

“O brilliant woman, remove ignorance with your bright intellect and provide bliss to all.” ~ Rig Veda 4/14/3

“O woman, may you be strong and powerful as a rock. May you gain brilliance of the sun and have a long prosperous life that benefits all.” ~ Atharva Veda 14/1/47

“O woman, you provide bliss and stability to the world. You are the source of valour.” – Yajur Veda 10/26

“O woman, you are as strong as earth and are on a very high pedestal. Protect the world from the path of vices and violence.” ~ Yajur Veda 13/18

“O woman, you do not deserve to be defeated by challenges. You can defeat the mightiest challenge. Defeat the enemies and their armies. You have valour of thousands. Please us all.” ~ Yajur Veda 13/26

“O woman, realize your potential. You are a lioness who can destroy criminals, ignorance, and vices and protect the noble ones.” ~ Yajur Veda 5/10

“May the scholarly woman purify our lives with her knowledge, noble actions and guidance.” ~ Yajur Veda 20/84

“Noble woman motivates us to be on the path of truth, love, and harmony.” ~ Yajur Veda 20/85

“O woman, you are the motherly force that provides direction to our life.” ~ Rig Veda 2/41/16

“The way a powerful river breaks down even strongest rocks and hills, in the same manner, an intelligent woman destroys the fraud propagated by perverted ones. May we bow to such intelligent women.” ~ Rig Veda 6/61/2

“Whenever I am hurt emotionally or physically, woman – as a mother, wife, sister – provides healing touch and rejuvenates me. I bow in humble respect to her.” ~ Atharva Veda 7/57/1

“Noble woman motivates us to be on the path of truth, love and harmony.” ~ Yajur Veda 20/85

i would like to summarize this by saying – “It is the women of my life who have been the biggest pillar of support, thank you for everything you have ever done for me and other people in your life and for being who you are, you are the real creators.”
