Diwali Celebrations Across North America 2010 (Updated)
Diwali, the Festival of Lights, symbolizes the triumph of good over evil. For Hindus, the purpose of Diwali is to remove all sources of darkness (ignorance, greed, worldly desires and thoughts, etc.) from within us and replace them with light, which symbolizes the true knowledge and divinity of the Lord. Diwali and the Hindu New Year are a time when followers of the Hindu faith come together and share the joy in their lives.
