'Deepawali or Diwali is one the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It's known as the festival of lights that's marked by five days of celebration and spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and hope over despair. It falls on the last two days of the dark half of the Hindu month of Kartik (October-November).
There are many legends pointing to the origin of Diwali: In rural areas Diwali marks a Harvest Festival, which brings prosperity. It also celebrates the return of Lord Rama from his fourteen year long exile after defeating the demon-king Ravana. Some believe it to be the celebration of the marriage of Goddess Lakshmi with Lord Vishnu. And in Bengal the festival is dedicated to the worship of Mother Kali , the dark goddess of strength. Lord Ganesha, the symbol of auspiciousness and wisdom, is also worshiped in most Hindu homes on this day.'
Diwali celebrations may vary in different communities but its significance and spiritual meaning is generally “the awareness of the inner light” and brings us together in unity. This year send your loved ones of our hand crafted greeting cards.
