*Diwali – Arrays of light

Yearnings have begun once again
When light to brighten the darkness
Looked upon by millions
From all around the world.
Arrays of light to chase the evil
We pray to light up the darkness within
So the path to consciousness be cleared
From the dust that stray us apart from conscience.
Diwali – the festival of light
Is once again here to stay till another year
And its time to rejoice in joy
And repent for our wrong deeds
While wishing the good enters slowly
To keep the corridor to our conscience
Ever clear and bright.

The lights that we lit today
Using a match stick nor a lighter
Or by pressing of the switch
All carry the same purpose
To eliminate all that darkens the heart
And to free us from all forms of evil.

Loka Samastha Sukino Bhavantu
(May all living beings in all the worlds be happy)

*Diwali or Deepavali is a festival of lights celebrated by Hindus all over the world.
Diwali is celebrated usually in the month of October or November. Light, being symbol of hope and positive things, indicates the victory of good over evil. And by spreading light in every corner of our premises we try to destroy the reign of darkness on the night of diwali.
