Celebrate Diwali Festival of Lights at Govinda’s

Join the celebration of Diwali, the Festival of Lights, at Govinda’s Hare Krishna Temple from 5:30 to 8 p.m., on November 15. The festival will include live music, temple ceremonies, kids’ activities, lighting of lamps and a free feast.
   
Diwali is the Indian festival of lights, usually lasting five days and celebrated during the Holy month of Kartik. Householders will prepare by cleaning, renovating and decorating their homes and workplaces with oil lamps and candles. Villages and communities host fireworks and feasts. Gifts are exchanged, and love between all the relations within a family is shared. There is even a special ritual that celebrates a sister’s love for her brother.
   
Diwali is one of the most popular Indian festivals. This special time symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. Some read The Ramayana and rejoice in the heroic story of Sita, Rama and Hanuman—a story where good did prevail under dire circumstances.
   
This coming season of Kartik and Diwali is especially meaningful. Attendees will observe mask-wearing and distancing, while sharing the warmth and love that faith brings.
