  • Brief Explanation
  • This is a Morning Prayer called “karadarshana”. One begins the day with this prayer. ‘kara” means the palm of the hand and it stands for the five karmendriyas, or the organs of action. While looking at the palm, one invokes the Lord in the form of various deities, thus sanctifying all the actions that will be done during the day. By acknowledging the Lord as the giver of the capacity to perform actions and as the giver of the fruits of those actions, one sanctifies the actions. Thus, one prays in the morning to reinforce the attitude that all actions are performed as a service to the Lord.

What is the Religious Significance of Diwali In Hinduism?

The festival is mentioned in Padma Purana, the Skanda Purana, and other Hindu scriptures. In the  Hindu philosophy, a central belief is that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atman. The celebration of Diwali as the “victory of good over evil”, refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one’s true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite,immanent and transcendent reality.

With this awakening comes compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things, and knowledge overcomes ignorance. Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light over spiritual darkness knowledge over ignorance, right over wrong, good over evil.
This is the message one can implement in their lives.

Diwali is honoring the return of the lord Rama, his wife Sita and his brother Lakshmana from exile, as told in Ramayana


Its also the return of Pandavas after 12 years of Vanvas and one year of agnyatavas as told in Mahabharata.


Diwali is linked to the celebration of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, and wife of deity Vishnu. The five day festival of Diwali begins on the day Lakshmi was born from the churning of cosmic ocean of milk during the tug of war between the forces of good and forces of evil; the night of Diwali is the day Lakshmi choose Vishnu as her husband and then married him.

Diwali is the day Vishnu came back to Lakshmi and their abode in the Vaikuntha; so those who worship Lakshmi receive her blessings of health and wealth during the year ahead.

Why is Diwali Celebrated ? – Popular Story From Ancient Times

In Ancient times a demon by name Narakasura, tortured common people.People prayed to Lord Sri Krishna to help them.Sri Krishna fought with Narakasura and killed him on Diwali day.The people then celebrated Narakasura’s defeat with sparklers, lights and firecrackers which is the tradition even today.

An effigy of demon Narakasura is made with Paper or Hay with fire crackers attached to it and then it is set to fire witnessed by a crowd of people.
