Diwali Celebrations Perth 2010

While Deepavali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning is "the awareness of the inner light". The name Diwali is itself a contraction of the word Deepavali (Sanskrit: दीपावली Dīpāvali), which translates into row of lamps .
