Diwali or Deepavali is a festival of lights. In Sanskrit “Deepavali” means “an array of lights” and signifies the victory of brightness over darkness.This day is special for everybody from children to adults. Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped on this festival. The people celebrate diwali by lighting lamps in and around the house, wear new clothes, do pooja at home and visit temples.
Diwali is the festival celebrated for the return of Lord Rama, King of Ayodhya, with his wife Seeta and brother Lakshman after 14 years exile and also after the victory against Ravana. They also say Diwali is celebrated for Krishna who conquered Asura Naraka who jailed ten thousands of inhabitants. Lighting lamps in Diwali signifies a welcome to prosperity in the form of Lakshmi and the fireworks signifies a scare to the evil spirits.
In our centre, we are celebrating Diwali. The centre will be open from 9am to 10pm. We will be distributing special Prasad and sweets from morning till night. There are also special Diwali greeting cards and Diwali traditional plain and painted lamps for sale in the centre.
