Legend And Celebrations of Diwali

Diwali is believed to have been celebrated initially on the arrival of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. When Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman after killing Lanka's King Ravana, the entire city was glowing with lamps. Lamps were lit in every city and village.

  • Furthermore, Goddess Lakshmi incarnated from the churning of the sea on this day, i.e., Diwali.  This day is often considered to be the birthday of Goddess Lakshmi. On this day, Goddess Lakshmi chose Lord Vishnu as her husband. 

  • Along with Goddess Lakshmi, offerings are made to Lord Ganesha, the symbol of learning, Goddess Saraswati, the symbol of music and literature, and Lord Kubera, the god of wealth. Some people celebrate Diwali as the day of Vishnu's return to Vaikuntha.

  • Although Diwali is mainly an Indian festival, its vibrant celebration extends far beyond India’s borders to countries where there is a substantial Hindu diaspora, such as Malaysia, Singapore, Nepal, and Fiji.

  • Diwali is also celebrated because of Lord Mahavir's attainment of Nirvana and Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib's return from imprisonment to Amritsar.

  • The ruling Nakshatra during Diwali is Swati, associated with Saraswati, the goddess of art, music, and education. Due to the influence of this Nakshatra, there will be an atmosphere of happiness throughout the day.
