It is believed that Lord Vishnu was born on the earth as a son of Ayodhya, Dasharatha, to end the atrocities committed by the demons; specially the demon king; Ravana. Ravan had been granted a boon of invincibility against Gods and such, Lord Vishnu was sent in the form of a human. Rama killed Ravana in order to maintain Dharma, on earth. He exemplifies the 'perfect' person and what the epitome of an example of how to live life in accordance to 'Dharma'.

So, this festival celebrates the victory of Dharma over Adharma.

Fasting on this day signifies purification of body and mind and thus, seeks perfection as a human being.
