HISTORY OF DIWALI
Divali comes from the word Deepavali which is Sanskrit for a row of lights. It is one of the most popular festivals celebrated by Hindus everywhere on the darkest night of the year which is between the months of October to November.
Divali is associated with Mother Lakshmi who is the goddess of light, health, wealth and prosperity. Mother Lakshmi appeared along with other items such as poison and nectar when the gods and demons churned the ocean for divine nectar. Hindus fast for a period of twenty-eight (28) days and perform Lakshmi pooja (prayers) on the night of Divali.
Divali is also celebrated to commemorate the homecoming of Lord Rama after being in exile for a period of fourteen (14) years and defeating the evil king of Lanka, Ravana which represents the victory of good over evil. It is said that when Lord Rama returned to his home of Ayodya that the people lined the streets with thousands deeyas to welcome him home.
