Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, this is my body, which is given for you. Do this is remembrance of me.

Welcomed with rows of lamps called diyas and decoration, it is believed that this day brings a lot of prosperity into the home. Thus, it is celebrated in full spirits by all devotees. The diyas welcome the god Rama and his wife, Sita back from the forest where he was exiled for 14 years by his horrid stepmother to stop him from becoming ruler. The festivity begins with cleaning and buying new things for the home, new traditional clothing for the family, making delicious and savory sweets, gifting one another, bursting firecrackers and completing the day with pooja (offerings and prayers to God) in the evening. The pooja helps one to connect with the spiritual self.
