CHAITRA DASHAIN

Chaitra Dasain (March-April)

Red vermillion powder, family blessings, and goat and duck sacrifices are essentiaI to praise the victory of Ram, hero of the epic Ramayana, over the evil king Rawan. Mother Goddess Durga, the source of all power, must be supplicated too for her powers that helped Ram achieve his victory.
