Goddess Lakshmi (goddess of wealth and prosperity) was said to have been born on this day. This time also celebrates her marriage to Lord Vishnu (the protector and maintainer of the universe).
Diwali also commemorates the return of Lord Rama (along with Ma Sita and Lakshman) from his fourteen-year-long exile and vanquishing the demon-king Ravana.
In our own Lineage, Paramaguru Sri Deep Narayan Mahapraphuji was also born on this day.
We welcome all to an evening meditation as a celebration of Light. The meditation is approximately 30 - 45 minutes long.
