Today Is Diwali

by Hector Diego

Dipavali, or Diwali (Hindi), celebrates different events, depending on what part of India one comes from. Commonly, Diwali welcomes the goddess Laksmi into one's freshly cleaned home with lamps for the occasion, so therefore, 'the festival of lights.'

And for the more esoteric among us, today is also Kali Puja. All glories to the Divine Mother!
