The festival of Dīvālī is a joyous occasion during which there should be light in every heart as there is light everywhere else.
Sikhs share the Dīvālī celebrations. Like Baisākhī and Māghī, Dīvālī was a festival ordained by Gurū Amar Dās for Sikh congregations. According to tradition Bhāī Buḍhā completed his reading of the Ādi Granth on Dīvālī and Gurū Hargobind was released from Gwālior gaol. See MANĪ SIṄGH.
