Celebration of Diwali

Diwali the festival of lights falls on Saturday, 14th November 2020.

It is celebrated in late Ashwin (September– October) and ends in early  Kartika (October - November).  The celebration lasts for 5 days, an event marking the beginning of  Karthika Masam which is auspicious for performing pujas and rituals.

The season is defined for its festivity. During the days of Diwali, every house will be adorned with lamps or diyas. Relatives and friends exchange sweets and families in the united tone pray for happiness and prosperity. Dining together and having fun with fireworks, the festival has everything that keeps devotees waiting for the date.

The festival is celebrated to cherish the victory of good over evil. After defeating the demon king Ravana, Lord Rama returned to his kingdom Ayodhya completing 14 years of exile. To welcome their king, citizens or Ayodhya-vases decorated streets and their homes with lamps or diya's. For reminiscing of his victorious return,  every year devotees celebrate Diwali.  A lighted lamp is the universal icon of this season.

This occasion is also associated with the birth of Lakshmi,  Goddess of wealth and prosperity who came to existence after Samudra mantanam. To celebrate her birth and satisfy her, devotees perform Lakshmi puja which is supposed to bring about prosperity and wealth.

All stories connect to a single thread, the ultimate victory of good over evil. Diya's  or lighted lamps signify hope, the eradication of materialistic darkness and the implementation of dharma or truth through enlightenment. 

“Radiance of diya's dazzling streets, Prayers and chanting filling homes,

Fireworks painting the skies, Exchanging sweets and cherishing bonds,

Vibes of festivity everywhere…….., Let's welcome the festival of lights”
