Diwali

Diwali, meaning ‘festival of lights’, is one of the most widely celebrated occasions in the year. Diwali is observed not only by Hindus but also by Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs. The central theme for Diwali  is derived from the epic Ramayana.

Diwali is celebrated with elaborate firework displays, candles and lamps. Join us at Bhaktivedanta Manor for a colourful stage show with drama and traditional dance and of course, a spectacular fireworks display at 6pm that will have every face turned towards the skies.
