Diwali is celebrated as there is a great epic behind it. As per the epic, on the day of Amavasya (no moon night), God Ram came back to Ayodhya with his wife, Sita, after living for 14 years in the forest. On this occasion, people of Ayodhya lighten up the diyas of pure ghee to remove the darkness of the no moon night and welcome lord Ram. During the tenure of 14 years, Lord Rama has conquered on Ravana, an evil King, who kidnapped the wife of Lord Ram. The evil king Ravana signifies the dishonesty, immorality and arrogance whereas lord Ram signifies honesty, righteousness and mortality. Lord Ram conquers over the evil king Ravana and it is considered as the win of the truth over the evil.

It is considered that on the day of Diwali, Goddess Laxmi itself visit on the Earth and stays in the houses of people. For this reason, most of the people allow the Goddess laxmi to get into their house and they get blessed with the wealth and prosperity. The individuals that closed their door on the night of Laxmi pooja are remained untouched with the enormous blessings of the god Laxmi. May you also get blessed with the blessings of Goddess laxmi and best wishes for the Diwali festival.
