Diwali, popularly known as the �Festival of Lights�, was celebrated with great enthusiasm at the Clarkston BAPS Temple.
On this darkest day of the month, people light divas symbolically praying to the Lord for inner enlightenment, and food from the recent harvest are first offered to the Lord. The annakut was displayed with food items placed on steps leading up to the idols in eight different miniature temples. Many decorative fruit baskets, cakes, flower arrangements and rangolis accompanied the annakut. Inspired by His Divine Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj, the celebration was an immense success.
