Once again the Festival of Lights, the Hindu Festival known as Diwali or, Deepavali is here!
The uplifting emotions and significance of the festival make it a celebration to look forward to. Diwali signifies “the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. The beginning of a new cycle for positive change and an auspicious time to seek the help of Maha Lakshmi, for both material and spiritual wealth and prosperity!
Lighting a lamp during the festival symbolizes the destruction of darkness and all negative forces like violence, oppression, greed, wickedness, bigotry, etc. through knowledge.
We wish our friends all over the world a joyful festival as they share loving thoughts among fellow human beings and look up to Luminous Heights for help and spiritual sustenance.
May the festival not only remind us of the Eternal Light but, also rekindle the longing to grasp the Will of the Light and free our souls from all forms of darkness!
Happy Diwali, dear friends!
