May you have a joyous celebration this ‘Diwali’


Let us shower our kindness and care on our loved ones as we celebrate this festival with them.

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.
