Kartik Purnima Dev Diwali (India, Varanasi 2013) Has many names including the Diwali of the Gods and Tripuri Purnima. This day marks the victory of Lord Shiva over the demons Tripuri and is one of the most propitious day for worshipping of Shiva, next only to the Maha Shivaratri. In commemoration of burning and destroying the demons and their cities, this event, which occurred on Kartik Purnima day, is observed annually. While Diwali is the Rama’s (God in a human form) triumph over the demon, Dev Diwali celebrates the Global fight against evil forces that disturb the harmony of the universe and saving of the whole universe from the destruction. The whole month of ‘Kartik’ (October-November) is considered to be the most sacred among all the twelve months of the year.
