Happy Diwali WhatsApp Messages: Diwali or Deepavali, the festival of lights, is a special festive occasion, celebrated across the world. The five-day Hindu festival starting with Dhanteras followed by Chhoti Diwali, Badi Diwali, Govardhan Puja, and concluding with Bhai Dooj is round the corner, this year, Diwali will be celebrated on November 12.
The word Diwali is taken from the Sanskrit word Deepavali which signifies rows of lighted lamps. This auspicious day signifies good over evil, light over dark, and knowledge over ignorance.
Diwali is celebrated in honour of Lord Ram’s return to Ayodhya after an exile of fourteen years. According to Hindu Mythology, after Ravana kidnapped Sita, Lord Ram headed to Sri Lanka to rescue the Goddess. Eighteen days after defeating Ravana, Lord Ram, Sita, Laxmana returned to Ayodhya and that day is celebrated as Diwali.
Diwali is also linked to Goddess Lakshmi – the goddess of wealth and prosperity. Bestowed with good fortune, prosperity, and wealth, devotees begin the pooja by praying Lord Ganesha followed by a pooja for Goddess Lakshmi to ward away obstacles.
Apart from Lakshmi Pooja, wishing and greeting on the occasion of Diwali also forms an integral part of the celebrations as it also marks the beginning of Hindu New Year.
Let’s begin the festive season with these warm wishes, messages and Insta-worthy images for your loved ones:
