Deepawali or Diwali is the brightest and biggest of Hindu Festivals.

The name means Deep “light” and Avali “a row” with means a row of lights i.e. festival of lights.

Diwali is celebrated for over four days of brilliance and dazzles people with its joy by illuminating the country.

It happens in late October or early November, on the 15th day of the Hindu month of Kartik.

Each of the four days is marked by celebration of life, its enjoyment and sense of goodness.

Originally Diwali can be traced back to India. It most likely began as an important harvest festival.

However there are some other legends pointing to its origin, like the birthday or the marriage of Lakshmi with Lord Vishnu, as well as the return of Lord Rama from 14 years of exile and defeating the Demon -King Ravana.  

Diwali is the story of good taking over evil, kindness and forgiveness, to dispel darkness and ignorance while spreading the radiance of love and wisdom.

It’s about give and forgive, people forget and forgive each other.

Rise and shine – waking up before the sunrise symbolises ethical discipline, and work efficiency.

Unite and unify – people to mingle in joy and embrace one another.

Prosper and Progress – performing good deeds, buying new clothes, instils charity in people’s hearts, feeding and helping the poor.

Illuminate your inner self – an opportunity to fixing the mind with meditation to cultivate and enjoy eternal bliss.

Some associate Diwali for the 5th day for a festival of wealth and prosperity, with the tradition of gambling. As the legend sais Goddess Parvati played dice with her husband Lord Shiva. She decreed that whoever gambled on Diwali night would prosper throughout the year ahead.
