Diwali (Deepawali)

27 October

For most Hindus, Diwali marks the return of deities, Rama and Sita to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. To celebrate their return, villagers lighted oil lamps that illuminated the path in the darkness. For others, the festival is linked to Lakshmi – goddess of wealth and prosperity – and her birth on the first day of the 5 day-long event.

Its significance

The significance of the festival may carry nuanced differences according to region and within the traditions of Hinduism. However, despite all the differences, a common symbolism remains – it’s an important occasion that marks the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, and good over evil.

With this in mind, people ensure homes are spick and span, bright lights are everywhere and a feast is prepared to take part in the start of new beginnings.
