Some Stories About Diwali the Festival of Light
Diwali (light festival) is one of the largest and most enchanting festivals or celebrations in Hinduism. The festival is celebrated every fall (in the northern hemisphere) or spring (in the southern hemisphere) each year and becomes a national holiday in countries celebrating it such as India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Singapore.
Spiritually, Diwali is a celebration to celebrate the triumph of light over darkness, the knowledge of ignorance, the good of evil, and the hope of despair. If in Indonesia, maybe like Idul Fitri or Christmas. Being identical with light, light, and enlightenment, Diwali’s celebration is also synonymous with the light of the lantern, and the lights that adorn the roofs of houses, doors, windows, temples, and other buildings so the atmosphere is very bright and lively during this celebration.
Diwali celebration usually lasts for 5 days, but the main celebration falls on the darkest night when the new moon comes, the end of the month of Ashvin and the beginning of the month of Kartika in the Hindu Lunar calendar. On the modern calendar, Diwali celebrations usually fall between mid-October and mid-November, not far from Karva Chauth celebrations.
Diwali celebration usually begins 2 days before night of Diwali and ends 2 days after Diwali night. Preparations and rituals for Diwali celebrations began a few days to weeks before. The first day of Diwali is called Dhanteras. Before and today, people will clean, renovate, and decorate their homes with colorful floor decorations (rangoli) as well as oil axis lanterns (diyas), lamps, and lanterns. In the evening, there will be worship for the goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity. Dhanteras is also an important shopping day, especially for gold and silver jewelry.
