Today, Hindu communities all around the world celebrate the festival of lights – ‘Diwali’ (or ‘Deepavali’ in Malaysia). Symbolic of the triumph of good over evil and the victory of knowledge over ignorance, lights are used as a means to disperse darkness in the colourful festivities.
On this occasion. Nalanda Buddhist Society wishes our Hindu friends a “Joyous Deepavali” filled with goodwill and peace! May you have a harmonious and safe celebration with loved ones, and uncover a ‘world of brightness’ in others, and within ourselves.
