Varanasi is the only place where Diwali is celebrated not once but twice. Out of this, one Diwali is related to humans, while the other Deepawali belongs to the gods, which people know by the name of Dev Deepawali.
This great festival of lights is celebrated after Kartik month on Kartik Purnima. This year this holy festival will be celebrated on 19 November 2021. On the day of Dev Deepawali, when lakhs of diyas are lit on the banks of the Ganges in Varanasi, it is as if all the deities have descended from the sky to the earth.
There is great importance of lighting diyas on the banks of the river on the day of Dev Deepawali. This is the reason that on this day all the Ghats of Varanasi are seen lit with lamps, to see which people reach Varanasi from country and abroad every year.
People book hotels and boats months in advance to see the grand view of Dev Deepawali and capture it in their cameras. Seeing the ghats of the Ganges drenched in light, every person gets lost in it.
Take precautions If planning to wear these gems
Dev Deepawali, which is celebrated with great pomp in the city of Baba Vishwanath, is also called Tripurari Purnima because in ancient times Lord Shiva killed the demon Tripurasur on this date. Special worship of Tulsi ji and Lord Shaligram is also done on the day of Dev Deepawali.
Dev Deepawali is not only related to Lord Shiva but also with Lord Vishnu. It is believed that Lord Vishnu also took the Matsya avatar on Kartik Purnima. It is believed that when Lord Vishnu wakes up from his everlasting sleep, the deities perform special worship of Goddess Lakshmi along with Lord Vishnu. Whereas before this, Mata Lakshmi is worshiped along with Ganapati on Kartik Amavasya. It is also believed that Lord Krishna had attained self-realization on the day of Kartik Purnima.
