Ugadi…the New Year Festival!

104278

Today our friends in Hindu cities and communities are celebrating Ugadi, the Telugu Hindu New Year Festival. The name Ugadi or Yugadi is a combination of the Sanskrit words yuga (age) and adi (starting) thus, “the beginning of a new age”.

Interestingly, Yugadi or Ugadi is associated with the current age we are living in, the Kali Yuga. A Festival for our Age….sounds so good!

The Festival is celebrated with a lot of simple but delectable dishes, recitals and beautiful observances. Above all the positive energies of love and good wishes are unmistakable. A friend posted the following wishes and blessings:

“May you have a year bright as the sunlight,
fragrant as the rose and sweet as the honey!

Wish you a happy and prosperous Ugadi !!”

so the skilled theologian can wrest from any scripture
that which will serve his purpose.”

Those who know do not say!

ಌ⊱♡✲ The Fragrance of the Rose ♡ ✲ ♡⊰ಌ

☼ The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of
Lao-tzu’s dictum:
“Those who know, do not say;
Those who say, do not know.”

When the master entered,
they asked him what the words meant.
Said the master,
“Which of you knows the
fragrance of a rose?”
All of them indicated that they knew.
Then he said,
“Put it into words.”

All of them were silent…♡

I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy.
I woke and I saw that life is all service.
I served and I saw that service is joy.

Today, I join our friends all over the world who are celebrating the Hindu Festival, Diwali; also known as Deepavali and the Festival of Lights! I may not fully understand the history, traditions and rituals behind the Festival, all the same, I cannot but share in the loving thoughts and joyful sentiments surrounding a Festival dedicated to light and signifying “the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair.[“
Happy Diwali, my dear friends! May the Festival remind us all of the ETERNAL LIGHT and Its WILL!
This year, October 23 comes down with so much “feel good” for me: this Festival, the New Moon Eclipse and my Birth Day; all in one day! So much to be grateful for!
Abundant love, peace and joy are what I wish everyone who has crossed my earthly path so far; irrespective of whether we have met physically or, not. I pray that I do not fail (again) the Hand of Fate that has guided our paths to the “crossings”!
