BAPS for years has sought to preserve the essence of Hindu festivals by educating individuals, especially the youth, of their enduring spiritual significance. Diwali is a celebration of the historical return of Bhagwan Shri Ram from his 14-year exile from Ayodhya, accompanied by the universal values that he exemplified. During these auspicious days, families come together to celebrate these universal values of unity, respect, and loyalty while renewing efforts to live a more righteous and spiritual life.
In order to help families pass on this understanding and values to younger generations, BAPS has annually organized Kids' Diwali Celebration at centers throughout North America. Please join a virtual Diwali celebration for all school-aged children at https://baps.sl/KDC2021.
