He returned with his wife Sita & brother Lakshaman , so people of Ayodhya decorated the entire city with earthern lamps (diyas).Rows (aavali) of lamps (deep) that people lit to welcome their king gives name to this festival Deepawali .
·5thincarnation of lord Vishnu as Vaman avatar:
The second reason is about the 5th incarnation (avatar) of Lord Vishnu as vaman avatar, who protected goddess Lakshmi from the prison of king bali, a booned king by lord Brahma for being undefeatable by even gods. Vishnu became a Brahmin & approached king for charity. King couldn’t refuse & gave his kingdom & wealth (for that Lakshmi is said to be goddess). That’s why goddess Lakshmi is worshipped.
·Birth of Goddess Lakshmi :

·Killing of Narkasura :
The fourth reason behind celebration of Diwali is killing of narkasur. He was son of varaha murthyincarnation of Vishnu and earth (Prithvi Maa). When he was quite young, Earth mother prays to lord Vishnu not to kill him in future as narkasur shows his destructive powers so lord Vishnu promises and said that no one can kill him except you. As time passes, narkasur became powerful. Vishnu & earth took incarnation in the form of Krishna and Satyabhama. Narkasur start challenging all kings then he faces Krishna with Satyabhama. When narkasur attack Krishna then satyabhama start fighting with him & then he died. That day is said to be Narak Chaturdashi.
Fifth reason is about return of Pandavas. According to ‘Mahabharat’ on the same day that is on the new moon day of Kartik month, Pandavas including their mother and wife Draupadi returns to Hastinapur after 12 years of banishment as they defeat Kauravas at the game of gambling.
