Inaugurated in 2008, Diwali at the Chapel has since become the university’s largest and grandest celebration of Diwali on campus. Each year, more than 500 people–students, faculty, staff, and members of the broader community–gather in the historic Princeton University Chapel for this unique take on Hinduism’s Festival of Lights. The event features offerings of devotional music and dance, traditional worship (aarti), and spiritual reflections.
Diwali at the Chapel remains the Hindu Life Program’s flagship event and celebration of Hindu culture, tradition, and spirituality.
