The President lit the SSVT Diya in the White House first in October 2009 after receiving the shawl and accompanies by the chanting of Sri Narayanachar, then again in November 2012 and finally, on October 28, 2016. It’s a great honor that the same diya was used for all these events and we were asked to provide it once again for his final Deepavali in the White House.
