In Sanatan Dharma, three diwalis are celebrated throughout the month of Kartik. Krishna Chaturdashi in Kartik Month, is celebrated as Chhoti Diwali, Amavasya as Diwali and Kartik Purnima as Dev Diwali.
There is a tradition of lighting lamp in almost every where, even in water. The grandeur of Ganga ghats in Kashi & Varanasi is worth watching in the night. Many lamps are lit in water all around.!! It is a fascinating sight to see.!!
As per old belief, it is considered gods descend on the ghats of Ganga river to celebrate Diwali. Worship done on this day, makes God extremely happy and one can get blessed, throughout the year. The blessings of one’s ancestor can be obtained by donating lamps on “Dev Diwali“
Dev Diwali or Dev Deepawali is a Hindu festival observed in the Hindu month of ‘Kartik’, celebrated with great pomp and show in the Indian city of Varanasi, in Uttar Pradesh. Dev Diwali is the ‘Festival of Lights of the Gods’ and falls on the Kartik Purnima (full moon day), fifteen days after the celebrations of Diwali.
This religious ceremony is started by chanting of the holy Vedic mantras by the priests, lighting diyas at the ghats and the sparkling of fire crackers, to welcome and please the Gods and Goddesses.
On the occasion of Dev Diwali, all the ghats of River Ganga is lighted with thousands of diyas and crowded with pilgrims.
This utsav is celebrated every year in the holy city of Varanasi. Almost every year, the festival of Dev Diwali coincides with Guru Nanak Jayanti and Jain light festival.
