One of the most popular Hindu festivals, Diwali is celebrated in the month of Kartika (between mid-October and mid-November). It gets its name from the Sanskrit word Deepawali which means rows of lights. Also called the Festival of Lights or Deepavali, Diwali is a five-day festival, celebrated with joy and fervor by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains across the globe.
Diwali symbolizes the triumph of good over evil and light conquering darkness. That's the primary reason that the Diwali celebration involves people bringing light into their lives by lighting diyas, candles, and beautiful lamps.
There are various legends and regional traditions behind the celebration. In northern India, they celebrate the story of King Rama's return to Ayodhya after he defeated Ravana by lighting rows of clay lamps or diyas. Southern India celebrates it as the day that Lord Krishna defeated the demon Narakasura. In western India, the festival marks the day that Lord Vishnu, the Preserver (one of the main gods of the Hindu trinity) sent the demon King Bali to rule the nether world.
Among the Hindus, Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity is worshipped on this day. People also celebrate by cleaning every nook and corner of the house, decluttering, refurnishing, and bringing color into their homes by creating intricate patterns called rangolis from colored powder, rice, and flowers. It's also considered a time for fresh starts, a day to take motivation and light up your life with inspiration.
