''If you can remain detached, No matter what the event, You have learn't the way of Lord Mahavira, And won over life and death!'' we do pray intensively to be ornate with three jewels. Rational Perception, Rational Knowledge and Rational Conduct [Gem-trio - United constitute] the path to libation.

आओ... दिवाली पर वीर प्रभु निर्वाण को स्मरणोत्सव के रूप में मनाये,
पटाको से जीवो को नहीं, ज्ञान-दीप से आत्मा को सजाये व् कर्मो जलाये!
आओ... गणों में ईश [गणेश-गणधर] के केवलज्ञान की भव्य पूजा रचाए,
धन लक्ष्मी की नहीं, केवलज्ञान और मोक्ष लक्ष्मी की भावना भाए!

Divali [splendor of lamps] in Jainism is the jubilation to commemorate the salvation, According Harivansa Purana, Tirthankara Mahavira Swami had attained Nirvana just before the dawn of the Amavasya (new moon, early next morning) and According to Uttara Purana, The chief disciple of Mahavira, Gautama Svami Ganaghara also had attained complete knowledge or enlightenment (Kevalajnana) on this day in evening [dusk time]. Thus, the making Divali one of the most important Jain festivals.

On that day Mahavira attained emancipation and relinquished this universe forever. He sat on the salvation. He will never return from there. His emancipation caused extinguishes of Bhav Deepak [darkness] and turned the atmosphere into darkness and hence those who were present at that time lighted Dravya dīpaka [clarified butter’s lamp]. Dipavalee festival since then commenced for Jains. It is celebration of Nirvana of Tirthankara Mahavira and Kevalajnana of mahavira chief disciple Gautama Ganadhara. It is not an enjoyment of worldly pleasures, isn’t it? We also have to wish get salvation as early as can break the karmic bondage.

Dipalika roughly translates as "light leaving the body". Dipalika, which can be roughly translated as "Splendiferous light of lamps", is used interchangeably with the word "Divali".

Divali is the first referred in Harivansa purana written by Acarya Jinasena as dipalika (splendour of lamps). In his words the gods illuminated Pavagiri by lamps to mark the occasion. Since that time, the people of India celebrate the famous festival of Dipalika to worship the Jinendra (i.e. Lord Mahavira) on the occasion of his Nirvana: As Acarya Sri Pujyapada svami mentioned in the Nirvana bhakti - Tirthanakra Mahavira had break the all karmic bondage and attainted Nirvana from Jala-mandira, Pavapuri nagara, Bihara Pranta. Dipak is a symbol of light of attainment of enlightens & we’ve to abolition of darkness fascination to get complete knowledge.
