Diwali, also known as Deepavali, is a major Hindu festival that spans five days of celebration from Dhanteras to Bhaiya Duj. This celebration extends across India, parts of Nepal, and various parts of the world. The word Deepavali means a series of light lamps, which is why Diwali is called the festival of lights. Diwali signifies the victory of light over darkness and represents the victory of good over evil.

Non-Hindu communities such as Jains, Sikhs and Newar Buddhists also celebrate this glorious festival. While Jains commemorate the spiritual awakening or nirvana attained by Lord Mahavira and celebrate it, Sikhs believe that Guru Hargobind, the sixth Sikh guru, was responsible for the murder of the Mughal Lord's brutal prison. I unchained myself and set myself free.

Diwali: Biblical Aspects
1. Diwali is celebrated during Amavasha in the Kartik month of the Hindu calendar and Mahalakshmi his puja is performed during Pradsh his Karl. If Pradosh Kaal does not match Amavasya within his two days, Diwali is celebrated on his second day. This is the most common way of celebrating the holy day.
2. On the other hand, there is an objection that if Pradshkar does not coincide with Amavasha for two days, it should be the first day chosen for the auspicious occasion of Diwali.
3. If Amavasya is not performed and follows Chaturdashi Pratipada, Diwali is celebrated on his Chaturdashi's own day.
The best time for Mahalakshmi Puja is during Pradshkar when one of the fixed Ascendants of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius rises on the eastern horizon. Pradosh Kar prevails about 2 hours and 24 minutes after sunset. Blessings are bestowed upon Goddess Lakshmi's divine glory when proper ceremonies are performed.
5. Puja can also be performed during Mahanishitakar, which begins 24 minutes before midnight and lasts approximately the same time as midnight. This time it is dedicated to homage to Maa Kali. Generally, Pandits, Tantriks, saints and people who know the meaning of Mahanishitakar use this time to offer their devotion to Maa Kali.

Legends Associated with Diwali

1. At Amavasya in Kartik, Lord Rama defeated the demon king Ravana and returned to the kingdom of Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. The people of Ayodhya celebrated the return of their beloved prince by lighting up their homes with clay lamps and candles.
2. According to another legend, the demon king Narakasura stole the revered earrings from Lord Indra's mother and kidnapped 16,000 women.
Horrified by Narakasura's pervasive power and resulting actions, Devtas, along with the saints, sought help from Lord Vishnu. Incarnated as Lord Krishna, he decapitated demons at Chaturdashi in Kartik, retrieved the earrings, and imprisoned women imprisoned from Narakasura's bondage. The next day, people lit lamps to celebrate their victories and express their joy, leading to Diwali celebrations.

Other influential legends are:
1. Lord Vishnu incarnated as Vamana, a dwarf priest, a daring asura He requested Bali to give him three steps, and Bali eagerly agreed. Lord Vamana covered the earth and the sky in two stages.

Diwali: Astrological Significance
All Hindu festivals have an underlying astrological significance. The position of the planets during the celebration is believed to be fruitful for mankind. Diwali is a great time to give everyone a fresh start, from starting new household chores to shopping.
