About Festival of Lights

To  embrace true multiculturalism and to further the cultural integration considering the modern, multi-cultural Ireland we live in today, this year, UNITAS-ISAC brings the experience of celebrating Festival of  Lights to Dublin in spectacular fashion.

Festival of Lights aka Diwali or Deepavali is  the most popular festival in South-East Asia to signify the triumph of good  over evil, knowledge over ignorance and light over darkness. The light  that empowers us to commit ourselves to good deeds, which brings us  closer to divinity.

Diwali commemorates the return of King Rama from his 14-year-long exile and vanquishing the demon-king Ravana. In joyous celebration of the return of their king, the people of Ayodhya, the Capital of Rama, illuminated the kingdom with earthen diyas(Traditional lamps). During Diwali, all the celebrants wear new clothes and share sweets and snacks with family members and friends and perform traditional activities together.
