It is commonly known as the festival of lights – deep means “light” and āvali “a row” to become “a row of lights.” Light symbolises “Knowledge”, as light removes darkness, knowledge removes “ignorance”. Diwālī signifies winning over the lower nature in us by lighting up the lamp of knowledge, wisdom, and beauty in ourselves.
