The Office for Religious Life, along with the Hindu Students Association and Stanford India Association, invites you to join in the Diwali celebrations. All are welcome to attend.

Diwali (also known as Deepavali) is an annual Hindu “festival of lights” that celebrates the victory of goodness over evil. Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of material and spiritual prosperity, is worshipped on this day, and scriptural stories also commemorate the successes of Lord Rama and Lord Krishna on this special day.

Hindu communities all over the world celebrate Diwali with special worship (puja), sweets, firecrackers, and most importantly, lighting oil lamps to portray the triumph of light over darkness; knowledge over ignorance. This special celebration at the heart of the Stanford campus, will feature music, dance and reflections offered by students and faculty.
