Diwali- “Festival Of LIGHTS” is the most popular festival of Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism, celebrated for different reasons, occurring between mid-October and mid-November.
The name “Diwali” which translates into “Row Of Lamps”. Diwali involves the lighting of small slay lamps filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil.
The festival starts with Dhanteras on which most Indian business communities begin their financial year. The second day of the festival, Naraka Chaturdasi, marks the vanquishing of the demon Naraka by Lord Krishna and his wife Sayabhama. Amavsya, the third day of Deepawali, marks the worship of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth in her most benevolent mood, fulfilling wishes of her devotees. Amavasya also tells the story of Lord Vishnu, who is the dwarf incarnation vanquished the Bali, and banished him to Patala. It is on the fourth day of Deepawali, Katika Shudda Padyami, that Bal went to Patala and took reins of his new kingdom in there. The fifth day is reffed as Yama Dvitiya, and on this day sisters invite their brothers to their homes.
