Diwali will be celebrated in the Temple on Sunday November, 3. The program will start at 6 pm with Lighting the lamps and Chopra Pooja. There will be Laxmi Poojaat 7 pm, followed by Saraswati Pooja.

Recognizing that a segment of the devotees is not familiar with Sanskrit, a transliterated version has been created that contains text in Roman Hindi beside Sanskrit, allowing devotees to participate in reading Sanskrit words. This is currently available at a sister site brahmavidya.ca. Hard copies will be made available in the Temple on Sundays based on demand.
