Join us for a festive Satsang in celebration of Diwali (or Deepavali, the "festival of lights"), an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn (northern hemisphere) every year. Spiritually, the festival signifies the victory of light over darkness. We will focus on the story of Rama's coronation, after 14 years in the forest. Traditionally, before Diwali night, people clean, renovate and decorate their homes and offices. On Diwali night, they dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light lamps and candles inside and outside their home, participate in family puja (prayers) typically to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity. After puja, fireworks follow, then a family feast including plenty of sweets, and an exchange of gifts between family members and close friends. Link to event on our website:
