Promoting peace and co-existence: Vatican congratulates Hindus for 'Diwali' festival


It's a religious festival that represents the victory of truth, family reconciliation and adoration of God. The celebration, which is also known as the 'festival of light' actually marks the beginning of the Hindu New Year. This year it began on November 5th and lasted a total of three days.

The Vatican says it appreciates this festival because the celebration highlights that education begins within the family, since it's in the family that one first learns about peace, truth, justice, love and freedom.
