Another Diwali season passes and I am left in a state of deep reflection. During puja, I feel close to the spiritual force that connects the universe. I hope my fellow Hindus have a great celebration…and to those of other beliefs have a wonderful day too! Here is a quote from www.parmarth.com explaining the meaning of this special holiday:
“The time of Diwali is one of the most festive and beautiful times of the year. Diwali literally means a "Row of Lights." It is a time filled with light and love; a time when Indians all over the world rejoice. Diwali is celebrated on the thirteenth/fourteenth day in the dark half of Kartik (October – November); it is also known as Krishna Chaturdashi. It is the darkest night of the darkest period, yet it is a celebration of light! Diwali is heralded as the triumph of good over evil.”
Om Jai Jagdish Hare!
