INDIA FESTIVAL DIWALI




 
Diwali History : Why is Diwali Celebrated

   

Hindus consider Diwali as one of the most important festivals. According to Hindu mythology, Diwali is celebrated to mark the return of Lord Rama, King of Ayodhya, with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana to Ayodhya from a war in which he killed the demon king Ravana. It is also said that it is on this day when Lord Krishna defeated the demon Narakasura and also in honor of this day Bali went to rule the nether-world, obeying the order of Vishnu. According to the Skanda Purana, the goddess Shakti observed 21 days of austerity starting from ashtami of shukla paksha to get half of the body of Lord Shiva. This vrata (austerity) is known as kedhara vrata. Deepavali is the completion day of this austerity. This is the day Lord Shiva accepted Shakti into the left half of the form and appeared as Ardhanarishvara.
