 "One ounce of action worth more than tons of discussion."

Acharya Peter Wilberg
“From a Hindu perspective, meditation of a ‘Murti’, whether in the form of an image, symbol or three-dimensional idol, no more negates an acknowledgement of God’s formless or invisible omnipresence in all things than does carrying round and studying an artefact of paper and ink in the form of a Holy Book such as the Bible or Koran. On the contrary, precisely by virtue of its tangible, material form, the Murti makes it easier to experience the presence of the divine in all things, to understand that things are just as much symbols of the divine as words are..” 

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation is very happy to inform you that the Bala Samskar Kendras have celebrating Deepavali with gusto, enthusiasm, and excitement. The teachers talked about the festival, why it is celebrated nine days, encouraged all the students to participate in the Pujas, encouraged them to Aarthi to the day of the Goddess Lakshmi.

Celebrated Deepavali

Deepavali is celebrated by some of our Bala Samskar Kendra students. Teacher explained the meaning and significance of Deepavali. Diwali means “festival of lights”—a holiday that celebrates the triumph of good over evil. This year, Diwali will be celebrated on October 24. Though technically religious, it’s also become a cultural event that is celebrated with sweets and special foods. Learn about Diwali, when it occurs, and common traditions!

What Is Diwali?

Diwali (also called Deepavali) is a “festival of lights” that celebrates the triumph of light over dark and good over evil, and the blessings of victory, freedom, and enlightenment. The name comes from Sanskrit deepavali, meaning “row of lights.” On the night of Diwali, celebrants light dozens of candles and clay lamps (called diyas), placing them throughout their homes and in the streets to light up the dark night.

In most of India, Diwali consists of a five-day celebration that peaks on the third day with the main celebration of Diwali. In other places where Diwali occurs, usually only the main day is celebrated.

 Who Celebrates Diwali?

Diwali is primarily celebrated by followers of the Hindu, Sikh, and Jain faiths. However, the holiday is celebrated throughout India, Singapore, and several other South Asian countries as a national holiday, meaning that people outside these religions may participate in Diwali celebrations, too. Hindu, Sikh, and Jain communities in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, and elsewhere around the globe also regularly celebrate Diwali.

When Is Diwali?

Diwali occurs annually in autumn (or spring, in the month of Kartik. It occurs around mid-October and ends in mid-November.) Specifically, Diwali occurs on Amavasya Day -the darkest day of the lunar month, which is the day of the new Moon.
