Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

The lighting of lamps, diyas or deepas (yup, that’s right!) is an important and beautiful part of Hindu culture.  It is done in prayer and out of respect to God.  The practice is steeped in religion and believed to dispel the darkness of ignorance, taking us closer to truth and enlightenment.

This is my interpretation of The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture.
