Happy Diwali!!

Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is this Saturday, October 17. Here is a picture from a Diwali pooja last year in my husband's Delhi home:

Diwali is a national holiday in India and a significant festival in Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism. Although it is commonly referred to as the "Festival of Lights", its spiritual interpretation is the "awareness of the inner light." Happy Diwali to all!
