Join the Woodlands Community this weekend to celebrate Diwali and Deepmala!
November 14 marks an important holiday for Hindu and Sikh traditions. For Hindus, the day is a called Diwali representing the day Ram returned from 14 years of exile. Tradition celebrates the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness and wisdom over ignorance.
For Sikhs, the day is known as Deepmala or Bandi Chor Diwas. It was the day their 6th guru, Guru Hargobond Singh Ji, was released from an unfairly convicted two-year prison term. Upon his return, the Golden Temple was illuminated with clay oil lamps and is still to this day to support that light that was in the guru and in the hope that it may shine in all of us
On Saturday, head to Woodlands to see the storefront created by locals light up!
