Event description

Light Up Your Hearts with the Sparkle of Diwali !
Enjoy Devotion, Fun, Food, Friends & Festivities 
Make memories like never before… feel like you are back in India

 Diwali, also called Deepawali, is popularly known as the festival of lights!

The deeper philosophical meaning of Diwali is explained in our scriptures – within each person’s heart, there lies the potential for both good and evil. These qualities are called sattvic and tamas in Sanskrit and they represent light and darkness, respectively. Developing the sattvic quality of one’s mind through good thoughts and actions, and through devotion to God, is like lighting up your heart, which drives away the darkness of tamas. 

So join us at Radha Govind Dham this Diwali and light up your hearts in sparkle of both devotion & celebration…. Experience the splendor of Hindu heritage with an amazing lineup of activities including
