On the tenth day of the waxing moon of Padmanabha (Asvina) month, occurs Vijayotsava. On this day Lord Ramachandra heard from Hanuman beneath the sami tree that he had found and seen Sita on the Island kingdom of Lanka. Hearing this, Lord Ramachandra held a festival, and then set out for Sri Lanka.
On this day one may perform special puja (worship) of Lord Ramachandra and then in His honor feed the Vaisnavas. This is a popular festival in northern India, where, on this occasion, large paper effigies of the demon king Ravana are burned to the resounding chants of Victory to Rama, Victory to Rama.
