The Meaning of Diwali
Diwali (also known as the Festival of Lights) is a South Asian festival celebrated annually by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs. Derived from the Sanskrit word, Deepawali (deep—light, awali—a row) is translated to a row of lights.
Celebrated internationally, Diwali honours the triumph of goodness over evil and light over darkness.
The festival is typically celebrated in October or November, according to the lunar calendar.
