Kaumudi

Kaumudi This month is called Kaumudi. The people in the polar region used to start lighting their lamps from this day. The lighting of the lamp is not without other significance. As they would be in darkness for a long period, they described the lamp that was lit as Nithyajothi (the perennial light). http://www.dailynews.lk/2007/11/08/fea09.asp
