The biggest festival in the Hindu calendar Diwali, is a five day event coinciding with the Hindu New Year, with the main celebrations held on the third day of the festival on the day of “Amavasya” or new moon.
Celebrated in early spring each year, Diwali symbolises new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil and lifting of spiritual darkness. Diwali celebrations may vary in different communities but its significance and spiritual meaning is “the awareness of the inner light”.
Diwali, or Deepavali, means “rows of lighted lamps” in Sanskrit (a Sacred Indian language), today it is the “festival of lights”. The celebration involves millions of fireworks, bonfires and clay lamps (diyas) which are illuminated from rooftops, doorways and windows in thousands of temples and buildings all over the countries where the festival is observed.
