And the darkness is set To light the paths of lights – to make way for the True one

That can liberate us from this world

Like most people would have asked me a few years ago (and even now) ‘But Jazz what is Diwali?’. Back then even I didn’t really have an answer and would have just said the festival of light but luckily there is more to this ‘festival of lights’. In actual fact it is actually much more of a celebration for liberation. The sixth Guru was kept captive in 1619 and he was released on the same day as the Hindus celebrate Diwali. Since the Guru liberated the 52 innocent princes from the prison it shows the Gurus affection towards us and how he is the only one that can liberate us from the world.

It is important for us to know our roots and where we come from. It creates our identity and believe me the more you research the more interesting it becomes. Although I live miles away from the lands of the Gurus, I still want to stay connected to this incredible religion. Everyday I learn something fascinating which pulls me even more to it. Even the word Sikh (from Sikhism) means to learn. Although I am only at the beginning of this path I know for a matter of fact  ‘Walking one step towards the Guru’s feet, the True Guru walks millions of steps to welcome you’.

I wore this bright vibrant outfit on that day to the Gurdwara. Just like every year it was a very exciting day. I always get so excited for Diwali, I don’t know why. It is just the feelings and the memories which make me so happy on that day. It also marks the fact that the colder days have officially started which means start your countdown to the winter days (and hopefully snow!).
