The five-day festival of Deepawali gives evidence of various streams of our country's golden civilization and culture.  In the Vedic period, this light was in the form of the fire of the yagya, which later became revered in the form of aarti and lamp of the temple.  The lamp is the oldest proof of our faith.  From Vedic times to the present, we have been celebrating this festival in the divine light of lamps.  According to Padma Purana, when Lord Vishnu, in the form of Vamana, took the entire earth from the demon king Bali and forced him to go to Hades, the devotee Bali requested him that O Lord!  For the welfare of the earth, I request you that for three days from Kartik Krishna Trayodashi to Amavasya, those beings should donate lamps in the name of Yamraj, the god of death and Goddess Lakshmi, the presiding deity of wealth;  He should never get the torture of Yama and his house should always be filled with wealth.  The tradition of Deepotsav is considered to have started since then.

According to mythological beliefs, Yamraj, the god of death, gave the knowledge of Brahmavidya to a young inquisitive child, Nachiketa, on this day.  Later, in Tretayuga, this festival was associated with the return of Shri Ram to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile and the slaughter of Ravana, and the incident of the killing of Narakasura by Shri Krishna in Dwapar.  According to Mahabharata, Deepotsav was celebrated on the completion of 12 years of exile and one year of exile.  According to some other mythological accounts, Lord Vishnu took the form of Narasimha and killed the late Hiranyakashipu on this day.  Mahasati Savitri also freed her husband from the death loop of Yamraj by her invincible resolve on this day.  There is a long series of sacred incidents associated with Jyotiparva which is a symbol of our desire and vitality to fight the darkness of ignorance.

 According to historical evidence, Jain Tirthankar Lord Mahavir attained Nirvana on this day and the gods praised him by lighting a lamp.  The Pawan Tithi of Diwali is also very important for the Sikhs because on this day the foundation stone of the Golden Temple in Amritsar was laid in 1577.  Apart from this, on the day of Diwali in 1619, Hargobind Singh, the sixth Guru of the Sikhs, was released from prison.  Swami Ramtirtha was born and Mahaprayana both took place on the day of Deepawali.  Maharishi Dayanand, the great Jannayak of Indian culture and the founder of Arya Samaj, also died on the day of Deepawali.  Not only this, the coronation of King Veer Vikramaditya, the successful emperor of ancient India, also took place on the day of Deepawali.

 Trayodashi, the first festival of the five-day festival series of Deepawali, is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Acharya Dhanvantari, the father of Ayurveda.  Acharya Dhanvantari, the father of Ayurveda, appeared on this day during the Sagar Manthan by consuming nectar.  According to Skanda Purana, in the evening of Trayodashi, after the donation of Yamadeep, the worship of Acharya Dhanvantari is performed along with the worship of Goddess Lakshmi and Kuber.  Vaidyas pray to him on this day so that his medicines can be healing.  On the next day, on Naraka-Chaturdashi, lamps are donated to the ancestors.  On the third day, on the night of Mahanisha i.e. Amavasya, Deepotsav is celebrated, Pratipada, which comes after Deepotsav, was initially a festival of Navanna-worship which later changed into Annakoot-puja.

 The next day, on the day of Bhai Dooj on Kartik Shukla, sisters pray for their welfare and longevity by doing Mangal Tilak to their brother.  In the folk tradition, mainly on the night of Deepawali, there is a law of joint worship of Lakshmi and Ganesha.  Behind this basically lies the divine spirit of establishing superior values and ideals along with the worship of both prosperity and good intelligence.  Lakshmi is the goddess of prosperity, wealth and wealth and Ganapati is the omnipotent deity of wisdom and wisdom.  The great festival of Deepawali, associated with many inspiring episodes, provides an auspicious opportunity to be determined towards the best values and ideals of life.  But today this great festival of self-illumination has been reduced only to the performance of external rituals and splendor of the worship of God.  The luminous inspirations of the festival do not awaken the conscience of the people.  If you introspect on this Jyotiparva, you will find that we are all bearing the brunt of forgetting the priceless traditions of the sages.  We forgot to laugh.

 Even after seven decades of independence, the condition of the Indian public today is one of widespread disillusionment and a terrible psychological impact.  It has to be understood that in our great Sanatan culture, our sages did not put the tradition of one or two but the entire five-day festival of light in order to expound the importance of Shri Tattva.  This Gyan Gamini heritage of Vedic India is the origin of this Deepotsav.  Our every conduct, deed and character should be associated with ideals, only then we will be able to be filled with Lakshmi's splendor, her Shri wealth.  Come, on this Deep festival, we all Indians are collectively determined with true devotion in the upliftment of the nation, only then it will be worthwhile to celebrate this Deep festival.
