You can make sure that you have a happy Dussehra

What is the significance of Dussehra? Dussehra, celebrated at the end of Navratri, is in actuality the symbolic celebration of the victory of good over evil. Whether it be goddess Durga’s killing of the asura Mahisasura in order to restore dharma, or Lord Rama’s killing of Ravana to end his evil reign, or Arjuna’s defeating the entire Kaurava army to restore peace, harmony and all that is good. Which is why when we greet someone with a “Happy Dussehra”, we wish upon that person the power to find within himself only his or her good by vanquishing all that is evil inside.   What is the significance of wishing yourself a Happy Dussehra? At Enrich Salon, we have always believed in ‘Love Begins With You’, and we feel this philosophy has special meaning on Dussehra for each of you.

In a quagmire of your own negativity and impotent rage. Love yourself by first realising this. And then working on it. Kill the envy. Replace it with appreciation for the other’s achievement. That is very easy to do. It’s just about realising that the other person is another individual like you and did what he wanted to do. Another great take away from this exercise is telling and teaching yourself that if someone else can do it, you can too. Find out how. Go about trying. You might fail, you might succeed. But you shall have gained self-respect. And constructive ambition.   This Dussehra kill your greed, and celebrate your ability to share Taking what you need is a necessity, what...
