Spiritual Significance of Dussehra
दशहरा - Dussehra - Destroying The Ravan Within A Special Message On Dussehra this year 2019.
A Godly message to overcome the five vices (lust, anger, greed, ego, attachment) which we call Ravan (Ravana) and to re-establish the inner kingdom of peace, purity, love, joy and of power. When the Soul who has fallen in the well of these five vices will now recognise its true spiritual identity as a child of the Supreme Soul (god) and thus receive the knowledge from the father (Shiv Baba).
So let's explore the truth behind celebration of Dessehra (Dushera) after the nine days of Navratri and why is Ravana burned? To read many such useful articles, visit our Articles section.
Many interesting and famous mythological stories of Dussehra or Vijayadashami, that celebrates the victory of righteousness over evil, are present in the world. These stories are hidden in importance and are not completely understood. According to the spiritual knowledge shared at the Brahma Kumaris, the soul originally was a sparkling star-like point of living energy, full of peace, purity and bliss; spiritually charged and staying in the soul world. This world is commonly called Shantidham or Muktidham, a world beyond this physical world of five elements. When this spiritually powerful soul first came onto the earth to play its fixed role on earth, its purity was naturally seen through the physical body, in the form of divine qualities like love, happiness and joy. Slowly as it came down in the cycle of birth and death, it started falsely identifying itself with its physical body and forgot its eternal identity of that of a soul. It started getting attracted to the five senses and sense objects that it came across in its journey. The golden deer which had attracted Sita in the Ramayan is a symbolic representation of these attractions and the internal stage of soul-consciousness is shown in the form of the Lakshman Rekha which Sita had crossed. This led to her getting kidnapped by Ravan and getting distanced from Ram.
The episode of kidnapping of Sita by Ravan refers to the kidnapping of the soul by the forces of Evil or the five vices namely lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego. Ram comes in the world to free all the Sita from the lanka of Ravan (the five vices).
It is believed that Ravan, also called Dashanan had ten heads. It is physically impossible for such a human being to exist. So these ten heads surely have a symbolical and deep spiritual importance, which we seem to have forgotten. The ten heads symbolize the five vices in man and five vices in the woman of today.
