Pravahit kar raha hu,
Ganga ke pavitra jal me,
balpan se tum par kya hua
nischhal or attut vishwas,
Hey Iswar! agar tum vastaw me ho
to ese shvikar kar lena.

Lights of the faith, Locals lighting the diyas on the occasion of Dev Deepawali.

Dev Deepawali falls on the full moon of the Hindu month of Kartika (November - December) and takes place fifteen days after Diwali. The steps of all the ghats on the riverfront of the Ganges River, from Ravidas Ghat at the southern end to Rajghat, are lit with more than a million earthen lamps (diyas) in honour of Ganga, the Ganges, and its presiding goddess. The gods are believed to descend to Earth to bathe in the Ganges on this day.

Dev Diwali @Varanasi
Kaashi's Dev Diwali is celebrated 15 days after the Hindu Festival of Diwali ( The Festival of Lights ) on the night of Karthik Purnima ( Full moon night of the month of Karthik as per Hindu Calendar ). The festival is a 5 day long celebration where the 87 ghats of Varanasi spread out over a radius of  7 km is decorated with diyas ( earthen lamps ). A stunning spectacle that draws millions of people from all over the country and world.
It is believed that during Dev Diwali ( Diwali of Gods ) the Gods themselves descend down to visit the ghats , bathe in the holy waters of the Ganges and celebrate at this pious city.
The people in the Gallis of Varanasi are at their joyous peak during the festival. They clean and decorate their homes to welcome the Gods.

Never in my life have a seen so many people in such a small place. Hundreds and thousands of pilgrims and tourists head to Varanasi to celebrate Dev Diwali, two weeks after Diwali is celebrated elsewhere in India. Most of these photos are taken along the river bank. There were so many people I actually felt quite panicked and had to get out of the crowds sitting at the furthest away point from the Aarti on stage which everyone came for!

Photo 6 - a main road in Varanasi which was completely pedestrianised with the amount of people visiting (this was 2 days before the main day of the festival)
Photo 7 - a group of people carrying out a ceremony (also a few days before)
Photo 8 - The night before the festival and the river banks were full with pilgrims, sleeping out in the cold, ready for the festival the following day @swathirao.k #india #varanasi #devdiwali #riverganga #ganga

“Aarti” the evening prayer is being carried out by a group of trained Hindu priests. Their actions are very well coordinated. Their performance is in sync with the hymns sung and is close to perfection...Thousands thong to Benaras to watch this specially during ‘Dev Diwali’ and ‘Maha Shivratri’. Such devotion of the performers & the audience is a proof in the power of Faith!
