Diwali is the biggest festival in India and is celebrated across the country with much fervor. It is also known as the ‘festival of lights’ across the globe. Another name that is given to this festival is Dipawali or Deepavali, which is actually the real name because it means a series of lights.
So, whether you want to say Happy Diwali or Happy Dipavali, it does not matter–both convey the same meaning.
We are providing the Sanskrit phrase that can be used to say Happy Dipavali–for the benefit of users who can’t read the Devanagari script, we have provided the IAST format transliteration also. We were helped by our friend, Varalakshmi Kandregula, for the translation in Sanskrit.
