The Hindu Festival of Lights.
A potent festivity celebrated throughout the world by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains commemorating the triumph of light over dark. There are many religious mythologies associated with Diwali that is embedded in the culture and the generations of tradition spanning over several 1000 years.
Yet Diwali is the lighting of the lamps in the dark. Like all good festivities, this one includes family time, with lots of yummy food, sweet delights, and plenty of candles adorning the home or office space and fireworks and the wearing of new garments.
With each lamp, it is the igniting up of our spiritual enlightenment and bringing forth the power to dispel ignorance and transforming it into wisdom. It is the alchemy of arrogance, wickedness and darkness into knowledge, love and light.
So from my divine heart space with in me, I welcome the divine heart space of you with best wishes for you and your family, Happy Diwali.
I love you
