Dashain is a 15 day national festival of Nepal. It is the longest and the most auspicious festival in the Nepalese annual calendar, celebrated by Nepalese all around the world.
Dashain commemorates the victories of the gods and goddesses over the demons. On this day Lord Rama killed demon-king Ravana and Durga Mata killed demon Mahishasur.
The first nine days of Dasain symbolizes the battle which took place between goddess Durga and the demon Mahishasura. The tenth day is the day when Durga finally defeated Mahishasura (please see the Kalika Purana to know more about what the goddess did on which days of the navaratra).
The Dashain festival falls around September–October, starting from the bright lunar fortnight and ending on the day of full moon.
In 2011, the festival starts on 28th September 2011 and ends on 11th October 2011.
