Diwali significance

Diwali is a representative element of Hindu festival and carries an inspiring historical and cultural significance. One of the most well-known legends connected to Diwali is the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after defeating Ravana in Lanka.

Rama’s return to the native land after fourteen years of exile in the forest symbolizes the triumph of good over evil and a happy reunion of the noble ruler with the citizens of Ayodhya. People at Ayodhya welcomed Sri Rama with rows of oil lamps, giving birth to the tradition of lighting diyas during Diwali.

In one another legend, Diwali is associated with the Goddess Lakshmi, the deity of wealth and prosperity who people believe visits homes on the night of Diwali carrying a lot of blessings to every household. Therefore, as a mark of welcoming the goddess of wealth and happiness, people clean and decorate their houses, light lamps, and perform Diwali puja. It is believed that her blessings fill the home with wealth, health and prosperity.

For Jains, Diwali marks the spiritual awakening of Lord Mahavira, the 24th Tirthankara, who attained nirvana on the day of Diwali. Sikhs also celebrate Diwali, known as Bandi Chhor Divas, to mark the release of Guru Hargobind Ji from imprisonment.
