HAPPY VIJAYADASEMI - SRI RAJARAJESHWARI DEVI

The final and last day of navaratri Sri Kanakadurga Devi appears as Sri Rajarajeswari. After her victory in the battle with Mahishasura we celebrate Dasemi the 10th day as vijayadasemi vijaya means victory dasemi means 10th day. She is the mother of the world. she is the form of Lalitha tripura sundari devi.she appears on the 10th day sitting on the throne and holding sugarcane in one hand, and giving blessings to her devotees with a peaceful smiling beautiful face.


In Kanaka durga temple (vijayawada) she appears like this in the day time and in the evening there will be a boat festival in Krishna river, they bring the Goddess Kanaka durga utsava vigraham(a small idol of Kanaka durga devi) down they decorate a beautiful swan shape boat with lights and place the Devi idol on it and make few rounds in the Krishna river and bring back the idol to the main temple this is called Teppotsavam. Dasara is a very important and famous festival in Vijayawada which is celebrated every year. Kanakadurga temple is the synonymous with Vijayawada. Special poojas are performed during dasara and also called durga navaratrulu.

The most important poojas are Saraswati pooja and Teppotsavam. In my child hood we use to visit every day to the temple almost, this much croud is not there at that time, but now a days a large number of pilgrims attend the colourfull celebrations and take holy dip in the Krishna river. In this 10 days of navaratri Kanaka durga devi appears in 10 forms and these forms of the day is chosen as per the astrological star of each day in accordance with the lunar calendar so that the dates will change every year. So these are the 10 days and forms for this year ,Maa Kanaka durga will bless you all with healthy and happy, peaceful life
