Dussehra on Vijaya Dashami, the 10th day, is all about celebrating Triumph over Evil!
The defeat of Ravana by Lord Rama, the defeat of the Kauravas by the Pandavas and the defeat of many demons by Goddess Durga- all occurred on Vijayadashami, symbolising the importance of the victory of good over evil using a united force of the Feminine Trinity.
Vijayadashami is celebrated as a symbol of victory. It is associated with the triumph of righteousness.
But let's not forget that victory is not a one-time event. We require sustainable success in our lives for us to lead a happy and joyful life. For sustainable success, we constantly need to remember and remind ourselves that it is only through discipline, experience, gratitude, and reverence that we have reached this far.
Gratitude and reverence for already existing things such as good health, a job, and the many people around us who have made it possible.
"Sustainable success is built on a foundation of discipline, experience, gratitude, and reverence for what we have achieved."

If obstacles keep coming our way, we may get tired or fed up with trying to achieve our goals. Here we must remember that it is the regular practice of discipline, gratitude, and reverence alone which will give us a sense of protection and prevent more obstacles or problems from coming our way. And this protection or ‘Kavach’ is very important for sustainable success.
There is a wonderful diversity of practices and beliefs during Navaratri as different regions and communities may have their own variations and interpretations of these rituals and symbolisms. These traditions contribute to the vibrant tapestry of our rich culture.
Let us all learn from the powerful significance of these nine days of our own victories and successes. Let us also understand the importance of discipline and gratitude in our lives as the only way to succeed and remove any kind of hurdles or obstacles which we may face in our lives, and also important to protect us from more problems which may come our way. We also understand that the most powerful of all weapons is clarity and knowledge for dynamic balance in our lives for continued happiness and success. By preparing and implementing a clear financial plan for yourselves and defining your financial goals you will surely achieve success in your wealth and well-being.
