History of Vijayadashami:

Dussehra is celebrated on the occasion of the triumph of the Goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura stressing the importance of good over evil. Vijayadashami holds a significant role in Ramayana and Mahabaratha as it is on this day Kaurava army was defeated by Lord Krishna and Lord Rama defeated Ravana. 

In Mahabharata, Arjuna, one of the five Pandava kings, participates in ongoing battles between Pandavas and Kauravas. After seeking the blessings of the Goddess Durga, he defeats the entire army of 1,00,000 soldiers including Bhishma, Karna, Ashwathama, and Drona. 

In Ramayana, War was declared between Rama and Ravana as the latter refused to release the kidnapped Sita. Rame came to know a secret from Vibhishan who is Ravana’s brother that he needs a special power to be killed. Knowing this, Lord Rama performs a 9- day Durga Pooja and seeks blessings from the goddess to defeat Ravana. He killed Ravana on the tenth day and so these 9 days are celebrated as Navratri and the tenth day as Vijayadashami.
