“Dinadwaye aparahna vyapithye shravanarksham yoge purvakarya

yadaa purvasmin dine aparahna vyapthi vishishta

dashamyam shravanabhavah paredyu udayamatra kaala

vyapini dashami shravanarksham yutha chetha thadaa paragrahya”

According to the above verse..

1. When Dashami tithi prevails for two days, if Dashami tithi is in the Aparahna time (afternoon) on the second day, then Vijayadashami should be observed on 2nd day.

2. When Dashami tithi prevails for two days, both days during Aparahna, then Shravana Nakshatra is there or not, the first day is Vijayadashami.

3. When Dashami tithi not exist during Aparahna time on both days, then Shravana Yoga is there or not, the first day is Vijayadashami.

4. Vijayadashami is on that day when Shravana Yoga exist during Aparahna time in case of Dinadwaya.

5. When Dashami is there on the first day during Aparahna time, on the second day Shravana Yoga exists for 3 Muhurthas time after sunrise, then the second day is Vijayadashami.

Nirnaya Sindhu tells this

“Iyameva vijayadashami sachadwithe yadine

shravana yogaa bhave purvagrahya

Dashamyanthu narai samyak pujani yaa parajita

Aishanim dishamashritya aparahnai prayathnathah

6. When Dashami tithi prevails for two days, the day on which Shravana Yoga exists that is Vijayadashami festival.

As per Nirnaya Sindhu

Ashwine shukla pakshethu dashamyam pujayennarah

ekadashyanchana kurvitha pujanancha parajitham

Ithi yadathu purvadine shravana yogabhava paradine chaa lpapithadyogini

thadaa paraiva thatha cha

7. Nirnaya Sindhu explains

Aparahnai paradine aparahnai

shravana bhavethu sarva pakshethu purvaiva

Aparajitha Devi Puja is observed on Ashwin Shukla Dashami only, not on Ekadashi. When Shravana does not exist on first day and Shravana Yoga exist on second day, then second day is Vijayadashami festival.

8. When Shravana Nakshatra Yoga prevails during Aparahna time (Afternoon), then that is Vijayadashami. Otherwise, the previous day should be observed as Vijaya Dashami.
