Event Details

Diwali celebrates the Goddess of Light, Maha Lakshmi. At this time we invite Her to come, and grant us Her material and spiritual boons.

The celebration commemorates the return of Rama, Sita, and Lakshmana after their 14-year exile. After fighting many demons, including the demon king, Ravana, their homecoming was celebrated by lighting candles and oil lamps by the citizens of Ayodhya.
Come and rejoice in the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil, hope over despair, and knowledge over ignorance.

‘By praying to Her on Diwali, She bestows happiness and joy – in both ways, on the spiritual way, and on the material way, because She is the fullness of everything. She doesn’t just give half. She gives the fullness, but She also reflects the fullness of how much one is dedicated towards Her. If you dedicate yourself halfway, She will give you half. This is the half-fullness. The fullness of what you can bear. If She gives you more than that, you will not be able to handle it. She also gives the ultimate fullness, the hundred percent, but you have to learn to surrender completely to Her and this fullness She will give.’
-Paramahamsa Vishwananda
