Diwali ’15: Nov 14th 3:30-8pm

Shanti, Dartmouth Hindu Student Organization, invites you to the annual celebration of Diwali on our campus on Saturday, November 14th. The celebration is in four events. There will be a prayer service, lighting lamps on the Green, cultural performances by Dartmouth students and Community members, and an Indian Vegetarian dinner.

Diwali, also called the festival of lights, is a Hindu festival that has gained popularity across the globe. According to Hindu legend, Diwali honors the stories of two avatars of the Hindu God Vishnu. It marks the triumph of good over evil (dharma over adharma) and is celebrated by lighting lamps on a New Moon day. Spiritually, the lighting of a lamp reminds us to kindle our own lamp of knowledge to dispel the darkness of ignorance.

The event is free and open to all members of the Dartmouth and the Upper Valley community.  No RSVP is needed, but seating is limited, so come early!
Here is the official program:
