About Festival of Lights

A symbol of Surya (Sun) and Agni (fire), the lamp plays a very important role in life in India. It is an essential form of worship believed to carry one’s prayer to God. At every stage of life therefore, lamps are lit to celebrate eternal life force. Indian philosophy calls the soul a self-lighted torch. “The flame of the lamp is likened to the Supreme Self”.
