Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere (spring in southern hemisphere) of India. Diwali symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.” Let us all embrace this sacred festival to tilt the world in a better direction.
This festival of enlightenment and spiritual rebirth gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that people light outside their homes. This simple gesture is a symbol of the inner light that protects us from spiritual darkness. Let us all embrace Diwali and ignite our inner light. Discover the joy that comes from difference as you make a new connection. It is just that simple. My Mother Margie taught me that.
