Growing up in a diverse continent like North America, children experience an array of cultures, languages, values, and beliefs. Amidst this, BAPS strives to preserve Hindu culture and Indian traditions abroad. BAPS endeavors to sustain the true essence of Hindu festivals by educating individuals, especially youth, on their religious significance. The festival of lights, Diwali, is an auspicious time of celebration for Hindus, rejoicing the historical return of Bhagwan Shri Ram from his exile from Ayodhya. Diwali is a time for families to come together and celebrate the values of camaraderie, respect and loyalty, and to renew efforts to remove ignorance through knowledge.
This year's event will be celebrated virtually at baps.sl/kdc2021
