Diwali or Dipavali or Deepavali is one of the biggest Hindu festivals in India. The word Deepavali or Dipavali is made by two words “Deep” and “Aavali”. Here Deep means Diya or candles or light and Awali means “Pankti” or line. So the meaning of Deepavali is rows of light. Dewali also has an inner meaning which is that it burns all negativity of people’s life and guides towards the light. So we call Diwali or Deepavali is Festival of light.

Who celebrates Diwali :
Diwali is a multi-religious festival. It is celebrated by Hindus, Shikhas, Jains, and Buddhists.

Hindu Community:

Diwali or Deepavali is one of the biggest festivals of Hindus. Hindu community celebrates this festival all over the world. Not only in India but NRI Hindus also celebrate it. Hindu community celebrates Diwali as a victory of good over evil. They believe in this festival all evil and negative forces burns and new positive energy enlightens the life of people. It is celebrated in Amavasya in a no moon night because people think if they illuminate the darkness of no moon night then their life and mind will also be illuminated and God will guide them towards the light and goodness. 

Sikh Community:

The Sikh community doesn't actually celebrate Diwali. They celebrate Bandi Chhor Divas which means The day when a prisoner gets freed. These Bandi Chhor Day coincidentally falls on the same day of Diwali that's why they celebrate it. Sikhs celebrate the day in honor of a brave Hero Guru Hargobind. On this day the sixth Sikh Guru, Guru Hargobind was released by Mughal Emperor Jahangir who was kept as a prisoner in Mughal jail at Gwalior. According to history, Emperor Jahangir came close to Guruji during Guruji’s days of imprisonment. Once Guruji saved the emperor from a lion while the king went on a hunting trip. It is also said that Samrat Jahangir was being cured of a serious illness by Guruji’s prayer. So Samrat expressed his wish to release Guru Ji from prison as gratitude. 

Guru Hargobind Singh also released 52 other kings along with him who was being kept as political prisoned for no reason. It is believed that the emperor ordered that Guruji would be released and who would be able to touch Guru Ji will be released also. That that Guruji got a new dress with 52 threads. Those 52 kings hold those 52 threads and all became released. 

He came back to Amritsar in the day of Diwali and his disciples celebrate the day by lighting up  Harmandar or Golden Temple with lots of Diyas. From that day they celebrate Bandi Chhor Divas by illuminating their house. 

Sikh community celebrate this day as the victory of right over wrong and pay respect to the Guru who saved 52 innocent people’s line with his intelligence and patience. 


Jain Community:

Jains also celebrate Diwali. They celebrate this day as the anniversary of Nirvana of 24th and last Tirthankara Mahavir at his age of 72. It is believed that on this day at Pawapuri in Nalanda district of present-day Bihar on 527 BC Mahavir achieved Moksha means that day Mahavir’s soul liberated from his body. It is said that the day to mark the occasion of the Nirvana of Mahavir the Earth and Heaven were illuminated with lots of light as it was a no moon night of Amavasya. 

According to legends Mahavir’s chief disciple Ganaadhara Goutam Swami attained Kevala Jnana or omniscience, which means complete knowledge on the same day. These 2 incidents mark Diwali special for the Jain community. 
They call Diwali as Dipalika which literally means light leaving the body. The next day of Diwali is celebrated as Jain new year. 

Buddhist community:

There is also religious importance for Diwali for the Bouddha community. They believed that on this day the Great King Ashoka started to follow the path of Buddhism. 

It is a well-known fact that the Mauryan King Ashoka the Great who ruled almost all over the Indian subcontinent from 268 BC to 232 BC was a kind Buddhist king. But history says that he was not a practitioner of Buddhism from his early life. The 3rd king of the Mauryan empire got the throne with lots of difficulty and bloodshed. After achieving the throne he started to expand his empire with the strength of his powerful army. 

After the war with the state of Kalinga King Ashoka’s mind changed. After seeing so many dead bodies in the war field and crying faces he felt restless. That time for finding peace of mind he accepted Buddhism and taken lots of measures to spread this belief.
