Diwali or Deepawali is celebrated by Indians all over the globe. The five-day-long festival of lights begins with Dhanteras and ends with Bhai Dooj. Diwali festival is observed on the 15th day of the month of Kartika which is why this year it is going to be celebrated on November 4.
History of Diwali
According to Hindu mythology, Diwali is the day when Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya with his wife and brother after completing his exile of fourteen years. The people of Ayodhya celebrated their return by lighting up the way to their home with Diyas. Hence, the festival symbolizes the victory of light over darkness and good over evil.
Another popular belief about Diwali is that Goddess Lakshmi emerged from the cosmic ocean during ‘Samudra Manthan’ i.e. the churning of the ocean in Satyuga. It is believed that she came out with a pot of gold. Hence, Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped as the deity of wealth and prosperity during Diwali.
Diwali and Farming
Diwali also coincides with the harvest season in India. In fact, in ancient India, Diwali was mainly celebrated by farmers as a harvest festival as crops are harvested between October and November only. India is an agricultural society where people would seek the divine blessings of Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth. On this day, all businesses are closed and prayers are offered to Lord Lakshmi to bring wealth and good luck to them.
ChargeERP wishes that this Diwali, may goddess Lakshmi bring you all the goodness in the world. May you be showered with happiness, health, wealth, and good luck. A very happy Diwali to you and your family.
