The 10 heads of Ravana on the deeper side symbolize the 10 Tamasic Gunas[Evil] qualities, which plague the mind and imprison it in a Maya Jal[Web of Illusion] of the sensory organs. Unless these 10 Tamas Gunas are purged from the mind, it will never become free happy and peaceful . This is deeper meaning and message of Vijayadashami or the victory over evil, the real evil, which rest in the mind has to be vanquished.
Wishing all readers a most auspicious Dussehra 2015, May all you hopes and aspirations come true and bring peace and happiness into your lives.

दुर्गा, काली, लक्ष्मी, सरस्वती शक्ति अपरंपार |
सो हमारा कल्याण करें महादुर्गा अंतर्यामी ||

This small two line prayer, penned by me calls upon Mahadurga, the boundless and infinite, the one who knows what is best to heal our minds and bring well-being into our lives.
