Especially from a distance and in the darkness, the beautiful face of hundreds of these lights is reflected back. The word "Diwali" is a shortened form of "Deepawali", which means "Light Swarm". The Festival of Lights is an event that is celebrated by all Hindus worldwide.

In India Diwali is seen as a renewal of life. On this day old lamps are thrown out and bought new. According to tradition, namely, new lights help the souls of the dead to find their way to heaven.

Traditionally, the festival also commemorates the coronation of Prince Rama. It is said that the Hindus of Rama's return from his 14-year period of exile and victory over the demon Ravana ("Rabon") celebrated. This evil has been defeated by good. In order to give expression to their joy, the people set fire to the lights in order to extol Rama.
