Diwali – Deepawali

Diwali (Dipavali in Sanskrit, meaning “row of lamps”; also spelled Divali or Deepavali) is a Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere (spring in southern 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.”

Diwali is a day when there is no moon in the sky. It is also called “Amavasya”. Amavasya is considered to be an inauspicious night because of the darkness that prevails all over in the absence of the moon. The festival and its celebrations usually last for five days, among which the third day is the main day. During all the five days of Dhanteras, Chhoti Diwali, Badi Diwali, Govardhan Pooja and Bhai Dooj, houses, temples and public places are all lit up with lights and earthen lamps.
