Why Diwali is celebrated, Reasons Behind Diwali Celebration
Diwali, the Indian festival of lights is celebrated to remove all the darkness from our life and to fulfil our future with joy and happiness. Diwali is celebrated to honour Goddess of wealth, Lakshmi and the God of wisdom, Ganesh. Lets move a little back and talk about how this great Festival was discovered.
There are various tales which depicts various events behind this festival .In Northern India there is a tale related to Diwali ,which is about the King Rama ,one of the embodiment of the God Vishnu. According to this tale , when an evil king of Lanka captured Rama’s wife Sita ,at that time king Rama builds up an army of monkeys to rescue her .The monkeys were successful in making Sita free from that evil king . Afterwards as Rama and Sita Returned to the North , they were welcomed with millions of lights spread across the Ayodhya city . In this way Diwali was discovered according to this tale .
In another tale it shows us how the five royal brothers, the Pandavas got defeated in the game of dice against their brothers, Kauravas. After that according to the rule the Pandavas had to serve a term of 13 years in exile. After those 13 years they returned to Hastinapur in Kartik Amavashya. To celebrate this occasion of the Pandavas coming back to Hastinapur , the common people lighted up bright earthen lamps in order to welcome them. This is believed that after this event Diwali was discovered.
According to another legend , log ago when the God lost their battle against the devils , Godess Kali took birth from the forehead of GodessDurga and defeated all the devils . But after that Goddess Kali lost her control and started to kill everyone who came in her way .At last she stopped when Lord Shiva intervened . This event is celebrated as Kali Puja, which is celebrated in different parts of India at the same time as Diwali .
