Festival of LIGHTS

On Diwali night, little clay lamps are lit in Hindus homes, but now a days colored electric lamps are also used.
What is the significance of lighting a lamp?
There is a logical answer to this question. (dot's thots: DUH!!!)
It is through the light that the beauty of this world is revealed or experienced. Most civilizations of the world recognize the importance of light as a gift of God. It has always been a symbol of whatever is positive in our world of experience.

PLAGIARIZED from SCFI (Society for the Confluence of Festivals in India)
