REPUBLICA

KATHMANDU, Oct 17: The 10th day of the Bada Dashain is being celebrated all over the country on Sunday with great enthusiasm by receiving Tika and blessings from elders.

On the day of Vijaya Dashami, the idols of the Goddess of the festival should be disposed of in rivers and ponds as per religious rituals from 7:23 am and the auspicious hour of receiving Tika is 10:43 am, according to Dr. Madhav Bhattarai, President of the Nepal Calendar Determination Committee.

One does not need auspicious hour for receiving Prasad of Devi, but the time was fixed only for those who seek it, he added.

The worship of Sri Durga Bhawani at Dashainghars over nine days concludes formally on the day of Bijaya Dashami after the sprinkling of holy water takes place marking the beginning of Tika.

People receive Tika and Jamara till the full moon day.

It is believed that one need not seek an auspicious hour if one undertakes any new assignment, campaign or journey on the auspicious day of Bijaya Dashami.
