Happy Diwali – Let the Light be with you!

There is a lot of festivals and auspicious events in India. It’s easier to count the days when there is no festival:)
However there are some really great and the biggest celebrations. Diwali is one of such Big Days.

October-Novermber there is one of the most important celebrations for Hindu, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists – Diwali – the Festival of Lights.
This is a celebration of triumph of good over evil, of light over darkness.

Lakshmi (Goddess of wealth) and Ganesh (elephant God of auspicious beginnings, or other words, of wealth and prosperity) are worshiped today.

Fireworks, Candles, Lights are everywhere (actually the translation of the festival is “Raw of Lamps”)
The celebrants share sweets, they also signify this day with wearing new clothes..
They pray for all good, sing and dance for Lakshmi

For most business communities in India this day is also a New Year day – Next day they start new account books.
For many farmer communities this festival is related with harvest and they thank for the harvest of the year and pray for next year.

I want to use this opportunity to wish you all
– Happy peaceful and prosperous life!
– Let your life be full of Light!
– Enjoy your life!
Deepavali ki Shubhkamnayein
दीपावली की शुभकामनाएं
Tuhanu diwali diyan boht boht vadhaiyan hon
ਤੁਹਾਨੂੰ ਦਿਵਾਲੀ ਦੀਆਂ ਬਹੁਤ ਬਹੁਤ ਵਧਾਈਆਂ ਹੋਣ
