What is the story Behind Diwali
To celebrate Happy Diwali has huge history behind. Different state people believe in different story in celebrating Happy Diwali. Whatever may be the reason people enjoy Diwali with full happiness and satisfaction. Originally Diwali is a five day festival and now-a-days it has become only one day festival. Only few people know that Diwali is a five day festival and most of us assume it as only one day festival. The first day of Diwali is called ‘Dhanwantari Triodasi’ and we used to start lighting from this day. Second day is called ‘Narak Chaturdasi’ and Lord Krishna destroyed Narakasura on this day. Third day is the actual day of Diwali and it is the day we perform special poojas to Lord Lakshmi. Fourth day is ‘Goverdhan Pooja’ and finally fifth day is for ‘Bhratri Dooj’. Bhratri Dooj day is specially dedicated to sisters. According to Hindu Mythology we have different stories in celebrating Happy Diwali.
- Most of the people believes that Diwali is been celebrated as a symbol of happiness on killing Narakasura. Narakasura is a Demon who is responsible for unhappiness among the people. Lord Krishna fought with this Demon and released many people from his custody. People felt happy for this and declared to celebrate this day as synonym for happiness and declared as Diwali.
- We all are aware of Lord Rama who left his kingdom Ayodhya along with his wife for fourteen years of exile. People celebrates Diwali as an occasion that Lord Rama returned to Ayidhya after fourteen years of exile and demonstrating the demon Ravan during the exile. Ayodhya people welcomed Lord Rama with full lightings, flowers, fireworks and this became a custom.
- During ‘Sagara Madhanam’ by demon on one side and lords on the other side Lakshmi appeared on this day. We conduct several special Lakshmi poojas on this auspicious day and it has been believed that it Lord Lakshmi’s Birthday. Diwali is celebrated on ‘New moon day’ which is famous as ‘Karthika Amavasya’ and to make it bright we decorates our houses with lightings and fireworks.
- According to ‘Mahabharat’ this was the day that Pandavs returned from thirteen years of exile. As the day is ‘Karthika Amavasya’ people welcomed Pandavas with full of lights and celebrations to avoid Amavasya darkness.
- We also have one more special reason that king Mahabali was overcome by Lord Vishnu in Vamana Avatar.
