Although Diwali originated as a Hindu holiday, Jains also celebrate a festival of lights at the same time to honor the attainment of moksha by Mahavira. Sikhs celebrate Diwali as well. In 1619 the 6th Guru, Guru Hargobind Ji, was released from captivity imposed by the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. When the 6th Guru returned to Amritsar, he arrived in the midst of the lights of Diwali. So Bandhi Chhor Divas, the day honoring his release, is always celebrated with Diwali. This weekend is the perfect opportunity to put on a new outfit, light some diyas, share some sweets, and come to NonStop to celebrate the light.
