KATHMANDU: The third day of Tika is being observed today across the country with people receiving tika from their elders on the occasion of Bijaya Dashami.

Tika, as a prasad of Durga, is received from elders and seniors in the family starting from today until Poornima, the last day of the Dashain festival.

Dashain is a festival celebrated by Hindus of Nepal, and they receive Tika, as a symbol of blessings from the seniors, on the 10th day of the festival.

People receive tika and jamara till the full moon day. Tika and jamara are considered the auspicious gifts of the goddess Nawa Durga and they signify prosperity.

Most Hindus of Nepal continue receiving Tika and blessings from the seniors for the next five days after the main day, called Bijaya Dashami.

It is believed that one need not seek an auspicious hour if one undertakes any new assignment, campaign, or journey on the auspicious day of Bijaya Dashami.

The Bijaya Dashami festival is celebrated in commemoration of the victory of truth over evil and divine forces’ victory over demonic forces.
