One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolizes the spiritual "victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance".The festival is widely associated with Lakshmi, goddess.

    The Diwali Festival — also known as the "Festival of Lights" — is an important Hindu holiday celebrated throughout India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, and other places with large Indian or Hindu tradition dates back to ancient times and is both jovial and festive. For instance, in Jainism, Diwali marks the nirvana, or spiritual awakening, of Lord Mahavira on Octo B.C.; in Sikhism, it honors the day that Guru Hargobind Ji, the Sixth Sikh Guru, was freed from imprisonment. Buddhists in India celebrate Diwali as well.
