Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere. One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolises the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.”
To my friends celebrating all around the world I hope its a time of blessings, grace and peace.
Happy Diwali to all my friends who are celebrating this festival of lights and love today. May it be brilliant and illuminating.
(From Wikipedia) Diwali (or Deepavali, the “festival of lights”) is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn (northern hemisphere) or spring (southern hemisphere) every year. Diwali is one of the largest and brightest festivals in India. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of good over evil. The preparations and rituals typically extend over a five-day period, but the main festival night of Diwali coincides with the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika. In the Gregorian calendar, Diwali falls between mid-October and mid-November.
To my fellow bloggers who observe Diwali I wish you a joyous celebration filled with light, love, peace and fun.
