The Diwali illuminations with lighted diyas bring the supernatural brightness and joy with the hope of finding light in darkness, achieving knowledge where there is ignorance, and spreading love amidst hatred. Diwali is also known as the Festival of Lights. Light is significant in Hinduism because it signifies goodness. So, during the Festival of Lights, 'deeps', or oil lamps, are burned throughout the day and into the night to ward off darkness and evil.

Homes are filled with these oil lamps, candles and lights. Some people use decorated light candles, some decorated diya or clay lamps, and other decorative lights and put them in their windows for the festival. Traditionally people use 'earthen lamps' with cotton wicks and oil to light up the dark night. As man progresses, tradition gives way to modernity. Similarly, earthen lamps have replaced candles of various colors and forms. Electric lights of different shapes and sizes illuminate the dark, cold nights of Diwali

Diwali, Dipavwali and Dipakwali have same meaning that is a person with dipak or lamp or torch or light. When Lord Ram returned to his home or home land, people wanted him to stay in light and not in darkness at night. That time, there was not many facilities as today's for using for lamp, so people use small earthen pots for lamp. Actually, people and disciples want their gurus, dieties and gods stay always in light and not in darkness. So, they use lamps in guru's home and god's temples. By using lamps or lights for making your guru stay in light will make you not stay in ignorant and will make you intellilent and wise.

In ancient time, disciples always used lamps in the ashram where their guru slept or lived at night.

Diwali is one of the nicest festivals of India.
