2.Evening I deccorated home with candles





GODDESS LAXMI DEVI-mainly we perform puja and get blessings from to develop health and wealth




DEEPAM-Gives brightness for life,welcomes Laxmi Devi to home,





The festval is named because we invite Goddess Laxmi Devi by litting lamps( dipalu) as DEEPAVALI.Hindu history says that lord SriRama Has become the king of ayodhya on this day,and king vikramarka was alsobecame king on the same day.people think on this holy day Goddess laxmi will visit all homes on this day so that all will clean the homes,and mop with cow dounge,and decorate homes with flowers and lit fire (deepam).



Bali chakravarthy the demon king will prison the Goddess laxmi and all other Gods,to help them lord Vishnu will come as Vamana and asks bali to give 3 steps,For the first step he will occupy sky,univers and the third step on earth,later he puts his foot on balis head and press him to pathala loka.And release goddess lami and other gods,they will go to kshirasagaram and will celebrate the day,so it is called diwali.


another story says that budhevi's and lord Varaha swamy son is narakasura,he was a demon king and treated Gods as slaves and willbe very violent,so protect against him. Gods will pray Lord Vishnu, So their will be a war going on between narakasura and lord Krishna and sathyabama,Sathyabama will kill Narakasura and then all will celebrate diwali
