Significance of diwali diyas
The fifteenth night of the month of Karthika is a no moon night, that is, 'Amavasya'. It is said that when Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile, the people were overjoyed to see him along with Sita and Lakshman. Since it was a no moon night, people lit up candles and diyas along Lord Rama's path to welcome Him. There were celebrations all around along with dazzling display of fireworks. Since then, each year that day came to be celebrated as Diwali. Though its an amavasya night, thee darkness is not seen because millions of diyas are lighted which enlighten the aura with such a brilliance that amidst the sheen of it evil is engulfed. The tradition continues even today. In each legend, myth and story of Deepawali lies the significance of the victory of good over evil. The lights indeed illuminate the homes and hearts of everyone.
