Deepavali- A Festival of Lights!

Deepavali Deepa- Oil lamp….. Oli- ray of light

A festival of light.


Indians all over the world,

Light oil lamps and candles,

To celebrate the victory of 

Light over Darkness. 

To celebrate the victory of 

Good over Evil.


I light the lamp, Not to eradicate, 

But to celebrate, The darkness in me 
Because 

The darkness in me 

Gives me strength 

The darkness in me 

Increases my courage 
The darkness in me 

Helps me to stand up for myself 

The darkness in me 

Completes me! 


The darkness in me 

Reminds me every single moment 

That the Goddess Resides in me! 

All her light and all her shadow,

Truly and completely,

The Goddess resides in me!
I light the lamp 

To celebrate the darkness in me!
