Diwali Greetings From The CPR Family

StaffOctober 2022

Diwali is a yearly festival of lights when families and friends come together, exchange gifts and create memories. This Hindu festival is a global observance of cultural and spiritual significance. It’s a celebration of the triumph of good over evil, the transformation from darkness into light and from ignorance to attaining knowledge.

Observed in different ways around the world, Diwali is rooted in Hindu mythology. In India the focus is on the scripture; celebrating the return of Lord Ram after defeating King Ravan of Lanka, Lord Krishna defeating demon Narakasura, and Goddess Lakshmi entering homes to shower prosperity. At CPR, we are fortunate to celebrate Diwali globally. We have team members, not only from India who celebrate but also the U.S., Canada, Guyana and this year, we have a new addition to our Content Team, Birat (who, by the way is authoring this piece), from Nepal.

In India and most parts of the world, there’s a one-day observance of the holiday called Lakshmi Puja, which includes the lighting of lamps and offering of prayers. In Nepal, they take things to another level with five days of  festivities

  • Day 1: Kaag Tihar (Worshipping the Crow, messenger of Lord Yama, God of Death) 
  • Day 2: Kukur Tihar (Worshipping the Dog, vehicle of Lord Yama, God of Death) 
  • Day 3: Gai Tihar (Worshipping the Cow, for thriving agriculture) 
  • Day 4: Lakshmi Puja (Worshipping the Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity, celebrated in India and around the globe)
  • Day 5: Bhai Tika (Celebrating the familial bonds of brothers and sisters) 

Diwali is not just about rituals, lights and parties. It’s about self-reflection and cleansing ourselves of anything that is negative. Those who celebrate seek purity, change and prosperity. The CPR team wishes our CPR client family and friends around the world a Happy Diwali. Let the party begin!
