Once again the Festival of Lights, the Hindu Festival known as Diwali or, Deepavali is here!

The uplifting emotions and significance of the festival make it a celebration to look forward to. Diwali signifies “the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. The beginning of a new cycle for positive change and an auspicious time to seek the help of Maha Lakshmi, for both material and spiritual wealth and prosperity!

Lighting a lamp during the festival symbolizes the destruction of darkness and all negative forces like violence, oppression, greed, wickedness, bigotry, etc. through knowledge.

We wish our friends all over the world a joyful festival as they share loving thoughts among fellow human beings and look up to Luminous Heights for help and spiritual sustenance.

May the festival not only remind us of the Eternal Light but, also rekindle the longing to grasp the Will of the Light and free our souls from all forms of darkness!

Happy Diwali, dear friends!

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”!
