Importance of Dassera

“The real significance of Dussehra  lies in Simollanghan. 'Simollanghan' means crossing boundaries around us to move out, to progress.  This does not mean - crossing the boundary that defines good and ethical behaviour. This does not mean that one should break morals and values.... The true meaning of 'Simollanghan' is to expand limits. And this day is extremely important to enhance our competency, capacity and potency”. 

In his discourse held on 24th October 2012, Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu explained the  significance of Dussehra.


Should Vijayadashami be celebrated only on the day designated as such in our calendar? Sadguru Shree Aniruddha has already spoken about this in his discourse on Dussehra festival.

“Undoubtedly, Dussehra, the tenth day in the month of Ashwin is extremely auspicious and a holy day. However, we must celebrate our victories - everytime good scores a victory over evil.
