If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

Ramachandra Vijayotsava

Fri, 2015-10-23

Ramachandra Vijayotsava is the festival commemorating the victory of Krishna's avatar of Ramachandra over the demonic king Ravana. The entire history of Rama and His conflict with Ravana is the subject of the epic Ramayana. Ramachandra's appearance and activities on earth also appear in the Ninth Canto of the Srimad-Bhagavatam.

Devotees of Krishna and Rama traditionally stage joyful reenactments of Rama's heroic victory on this day and burn an effigy of Ravana, accompanied by fireworks, kirtan, and feasting.
