Raavan Dahan at Austin Hindu Temple

We hadn’t ever seen a Raavan Dahan. So, I took the 3 boys to Austin Hindu Temple to see it yesterdat evening.

Raavan Dahan means burning effigy of Ravana. Vijayadashami is also known as “Dussehra ” is one of the most important festivals celebrated in various forms, across India. Dasara/ Dussehra is derived from Sanskrit Dasha-hara meaning “remover of bad fate” meaning remover of ten heads of Ravana’s.

Happy Diwali!
