Mostly Light – Diwali Symbolic Messages

We asked the question of our linguists “Which aspects of Diwali resonate most with you, and why.” 


Lighting lamps is a sign of removing darkness in our life. Presenting our egos, celebrating with prayers, and wearing new clothes symbolizes victory over evil thoughts. Diwali is a celebration for all of us, there is no restriction of cast, religion, political opinions or religious opinions.

Diwali is a festival of lights and it brings prosperity and wealth and peace to our family. One way of performing worship of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity is to light fireworks. Also by decorating with light and lamps we literally illuminate the interior and exterior of our homes during the “Festival of Light.”
