The Diwali Festival is a celebration of the triumph of light over darkness honoured by both the Sikh & Hindu faiths. And for Sikhs Bandi Chhor Divas (day of liberation) coincides on the same day as Diwali.
The Mogul Emperor Jahangir had imprisoned the sixth Guru, Guru Hargobind Sahib and 52 Princes. All were released from prison around 1611 or 1612 holding on to a panel of the Guru’s fine silk robe which had been exquisitely tailored for this auspicious occasion.
In the Hindu faith Rama and Sita, return to their kingdom after 14 years of exile. The Festival honours the goddess of wealth Lakshmi lighting lamps inside and outside our homes to invite abundance.
Remember to light a candle, say a prayer and fill your heart with divine light.
