Diwali is one of the most renowned festivals in the country that celebrates with full zeal and enthusiasm. During the festival, people worship the Mother Goddess Kali, who is very well known among the people of India. She is known to eliminate the evil powers and forces that dominate the ground. So, she is the best deity to ask for anything that one would like to wish for and get that as a boon instantly.

Description of the Diwali Festival:

Goddess Kali is black because she incorporated the evil powers of nature and, in turn, saved human beings from a traumatic existence. Diwali is also known as Deepavali or the Festival of Lights. The esoteric meaning of this festival is the light of the inner lights of the soul. Human beings are so burdened with the worldly burden of sins that the benevolent Goddess Kali comes in for rescue and demolishes the evil powers from my heart; she provides new hope for living and attaining salvation in this world.

She encourages men to remain in this world and be free from the sins so that while we pursue family life, we are also freed from the evil forces inside ourselves. This brings in inner joy or peace. That is why she is so popular and the most widely worshiped deity. The Deepavali Festival signifies the awakening of the soul with an inner light.

Diwali, like Durga Puja, also involves five days of worship of the Goddess Durga. They are Dhan Trayodasi, which is the 13th day of the second half of the lunar month, and it is regarded as the best day for shopping. Naraka Chaturdasi, which is the new era of light and knowledge, Diwali is celebrated on the new moon night with lamps lighted, Varsha Pratipada, which is the beginning of the New Year or Kartikadi Vikram, and lastly the Bhaiyaduj in which sisters give a tika on their brother's forehead which would protect them from all the evil forces of nature.

In many parts of the world, Kali Puja is celebrated with the sacrifice of animals to the Mother Goddess Kali, who is said to provide her devotees with anything they wish for in lieu of a sacrifice on the day of her worship. It has been seen in numerous cases that this incident is true, and so, even the foreigners worship the Goddess Kali and offer sacrificial worship to her. So, we may as well say, "Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear."

Time for celebrating the Diwali Festival:

It is usually celebrated on the new moon night, also known as Amavasya when the Moon is invisible. The Mother Goddess comes into the world to rescue her devotees from the evil powers. This is usually in October or November, according to the movement of the Moon.
