Dashain Tika 2018 date, Timings

Dashain is the 15 day celebration of various forms of Goddess Durga in Nepal. It is the biggest festival of Nepal and people celebrate it with huge enthusiasm among friends and family members.

In 2018, Auspicious Time for Dashain Tika is 19 October 2018, Tuesday.

Of these 15 days, the tenth day is the most important day of Vijaya Dashami. It was on this day that the Goddess killed the demon Mahishasura and it is celebrated to commemorate the victory of good over evil.

On the day of Vijaya Dashami, which is celebrated as the Dashain Tika day in Nepal, women prepare a mixture of rice, yogurt and vermillion called the Tika. Elders in the family, put this tika on the forehead of younger relatives along with the jamara collected from the kalasha as blessings.

The elders also give dakshina or gift to the younger ones in the family. This continues for five days starting from the day of Vijaya Dashami during which friends and family members visit each other and exchange gifts and greetings.
