Diwali, literally translated into “Festival of Light,” celebrates the victory of light over darkness. It is a ritual shared by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and even some Buddhists. The celebration of Diwali at Brandeis is open to everyone. Hosted by Center for Spiritual Life and Namaskar, the event invites all to try on Indian clothing, enjoy traditional Hindu cuisines and learn about the holiday.
