Green Diwali

Diwali at Parmarth was celebrated with a simple message of, “be green and celebrate green.” Fireworks were discouraged and instead, earthenware oil lamps were lit by pilgrims, yogis and visitors from nearly 31 nations.

Organic and home-made prasad was distributed to all present on this special occasion. There was also a large group of international students from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology who used the divine opportunity to reflect on the completion of their month long internship at Parmarth Niketan where they were studying Urban Development & Resilience (UDR) in association with the Indian Institute of Public Administration, Delhi.

During this time, they shared their findings in the form of an exhibition, illustrating that disaster reduction and disaster prevention were also ways in which we could celebrate the light of life and triumph the darkness of disaster.
