Happy Diwali

Happy Diwali! May these diyas burn away all our troubles, problems, and sorrows, and may these light up our life with happiness, joy, and peace this wonderful Diwali.

Deepavali or Divali is a Hindu religious festival of lights and is one of the most important festivals in Hinduism. The festival usually lasts five days, or six in some regions of India, and is celebrated during the Hindu lunisolar month of Kartika (between mid-October and mid-November). A lunisolar calendar combines the lunar and solar planetary alignments and is used in many cultures. The date of a lunisolar calendar thus indicates both the Moon phase and the time of the solar year, that is, the position of the Sun in the Earth’s sky.)

Being one of the most important festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”. This can be seen in its association as it also commemorates the day Rama, his wife Sita, and his brother Lakshmana, returned to their kingdom in Ayodhya after spending 14 years in exile and having slain the demon Ravana in Lanka.

Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, and Ganesha, the god of wisdom and the remover of obstacles, are two deities with whom the festival is frequently linked. Some customs also tie the celebration to KrishnaVishnuShivaKaliHanumanKuberaYamaYamiDhanvantari, or Vishvakarman.
