Happy Diwali!
November 14, 2020

Known as the Festival of Lights, Diwali is one of the most important festivals for Hindus, and symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. Diwali is celebrated over 5 days and traditions include lighting homes, temples and work spaces with diyas, candles and lanterns. Sikhs also celebrate Diwali, or Bandi Chhor Divas to honour the day that Guru Hargobind Ji, the Sixth Sikh Guru, was freed from imprisonment. This day is also an opportunity to recognize the important contributions that Canadians of Hindu, Sikh, Jain, and Buddhist faith make to our country every day.
