Message of the President of the Republic of Seychelles, Mr Wavel Ramkalawan on the Occasion of Diwali Celebrations

13 November 2020 | Religion

“On this most auspicious day of the celebration of light, I would like to wish everyone a happy Deepawali.

As we celebrate the festival of light, may we allow ourselves to be transformed, that is to walk away from all darkness and influences of evil to allow good and positivity to rule our doings.

Light brings with it love, peace and unity. In a world torn by egotism and self centredness, my prayer is that Deepawali will once again dissipate such ways and bring us to accept each other as beings of the sole Creator.

COVID has changed our lives and unfortunately this year the celebrations cannot take place. However, this gives us the opportunity to understand and realise that it is not the exterior manifestations that matter, but rather what emanates from the heart.

Have a blessed Deepawali.”
