Diwali Cultural Day 2013

The time of Diwali is one of the most festive and beautiful times of the year.

Diwali means “Row of Lights” and is a time filled with light and love; a time when Hindus all over the world rejoice. Diwali is celebrated on the thirteenth/fourteenth day in the dark half of Kartik (October – November); it is also known as Krishna Chaturdashi.

It is the darkest night of the darkest period, yet it is a celebration of light! Diwali is heralded as the triumph of good over evil. In context of spirituality this festival gives a very important message- ‘Light the lamp of wisdom and overcome the dark side of one’s own mind. This light of wisdom will also serve as a guide to find the true purpose of life’.


In the SUSU Concourse, all day today, the University of Southampton Hindu Society, are celebrating Diwali with a whole host of exciting activities, including:


So if you’re sitting at home with nothing to do, or just need a break from the stresses of work in the library, then pop into SUSU and experience Diwali Cultural Day!
