‘Good over Evil’ is the main message of Diwali. The first day of Diwali is called ‘Naraka Chaturdashi’ and marks the destruction of demon Narakasura by Lord Krishna. The second day is in in honor of goddess ‘Lakshmi’ who is the bestower of health, wealth, and prosperity. The third day is ‘Bali Padyami’, and on this day, King Bali would come out of the netherworld and rule the earth as per the boon given by Lord Vishnu during his incarnation as ‘Vamana’.

Diwali also commemorates the homecoming of Prince Rama to Ayodhya and the worship of goddess Durga.

Press Quote on ‘Sacred Geometry’ – (Premiered September 22, 2002, Los Angeles)
“… in Sacred Geometry what was clear, was some arresting dancing by the dancers. The most impressive was a section called ‘Navagraha’, in which a serene Hershall represented the sun attracting nine orbiting planets in a series of distinctive solos. As above, so below: the epilogue revealed the same human harmony in a village laborer’s circle dance.”
