Hope you saw my first post on Diwali - Day 1. Let's move on Day 2 - Naraka Chaturdashi.... The main festive day of Diwali.
Naraka Chaturdashi, which is the second day of the five-day-long festival of Diwali. The Hindu literature narrates that the asura (demon) Narakasura was killed on this day by Krishna, Satyabhama and Kali.In southern part of India, Diwali/ Deepavali is traditionally celebrated on Naraka Chaturdasi day while the rest of India celebrates it on the new moon night, which is the next day. People get up earlier and celebrate with oil baths, pooja, and festivals. Firecrackers are usually lit on Deepavali. Deepawali lies the significance of the victory of good over evil... moving from dark to light!!!
Like Day 1, Day 2 also we perform similar rituals; prayers, new clothes, lights, diyas, crackers. I did prepare special delicacy for the day. Light up all the diyas and also used the candle decor I made using CD's. It did add a lot of sparkle this day. Decorated pooja room and offered prayers along with food and sweets for the God.
Sharing some beautiful moments from this day...
This is all about Diwali this year. How did you celebrate Diwali? Do let me know in your comments.
