Hobart will celebrate Diwali (Deepavali) on Friday 9 November from 4:00pm – 9:00pm at Franklin Square. Diwali is a festival of victory of light over darkness; it is observed in Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and the Sikh religion. The word ‘Deepavali’ literally means ‘rows of lamps’. The lamp is not merely the symbol of knowledge of Truth, but also of the one Spirit that shines in all.
