‘Diwali’, or ‘Deepavali’ in Malaysia, is often called the “festival of lights”. The light that abolishes darkness is emblematic of the triumph of goodness over evil; truth over falsehood; and wisdom over ignorance. Nalanda Buddhist Society wishes our Hindu friends across the world a joyous celebration of ‘Diwali’. May you enjoy delightful reunions with family, and cheerful meetings with friends. Namaste!
