Diwali, also known as Deepavali, begins on Thursday, November 4, 2021, with dwadashi and ends with Saturday, November 6, 2021, with Bhau Beej. It is the Hindu autumn festival of lights, which is observed by Hindus all around the world. Diwali begins with Dhanteras and ends with Bhaiya Dooj, the exact date of which is set by the Hindu calendar; the major night of the Diwali celebration falls on Amavasya, the new moon night of the Kartika month. The triumph of light over darkness, the forces of good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance is symbolic meaning of Deepavali celebration.


Significance Of Diwali

Diwali's spiritual significance is to awaken individuals to their own inner selves. In Hindu philosophy, there’s a genuine persona called the Atman that exists beyond the body and consciousness of a human being. It is real, limitless, and immortal. The Diwali festival commemorates the triumph of positive impulses over bad tendencies within man, and it is held to rid people of darkness or ignorance. While the Diwali legends differ, the basic goal of the Deepawali holiday is to awaken our Inner Soul.
