The festival of Diwali marks the end of the Hindu year. It is a time of celebration and also, a time for reflection; to think about how much of the previous year has been spent worshipping the Lord, and how much of His commandments have been obeyed. The New Year is the time to pray for forgiveness for all the misdemeanours of the past year and to start afresh. Disciples of the Lord spend this holiday period serving the Lord in numerous ways, and praying for forgiveness of past misdeeds and for spiritual strength and wisdom for the coming year so that he can please the Lord more and more.

For the duration of the Diwali period, Swamibapa’s talented Sants and disciples created splendid rangolis in the grounds of Maninagardham. Acharya Swamishree Maharaj inaugurated the exhibition during the evening of Monday 16 October 2017.
