Diwali Today - Darshan Last Night

Diwali is festival of lights.Above are pictures of India at Diwali taken from the air above. 

Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It's the festival of lights that is marked by four days of celebration, which literally illumines the country with its brilliance, and dazzles all with its joy. 
Some believe it to be the celebration of the marriage of Maha Lakshmi with Lord Vishnu.

Diwali also commemorates the return of Lord Rama along with Sita and Lakshman from his fourteen year long exile and vanquishing the demon-king Ravana. In joyous celebration of the return of their king, the people of Ayodhya, the Capital of Rama, illuminated the kingdom with earthen diyas (oil lamps) and firecrackers.

DARSHAN LAST NIGHT October 2, 2013 at SPN

Since 500 people came to the Darshan, and it was held in the Light Hall, two Darshans accommodated the large number of people, one following the other. Each half of the attendants had an opportunity to attend Swami Vishwaanashuya’s Diwali Puja while not in their appointed Darshan with Premavatar Swami Vishwananda.
