 Diwali : THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHT (DIPAVALI IS ON 03 NOVEMBER 2013)

 

              DIWALI is one of the most sought after and prominent festivals of India. After the burning of effigies of demon kind Ravana; Kumbkarna and Meghnath on Dussehra – associated with evils; people wait for Diwali. On this occasion all spruce up their houses; change the old household items and prepare themselves for the coveted day eagerly.

 

          Diwali or Deepavali (an array of light) is also called the festival of light. It is mainly associated with victory of Lord Rama over demon king Ravana. As per Hindu Calendar it falls in the mothers of October / November.

 

              People burst fire crackers; illuminate their houses and streets with earthen wicks and candles. There is light and happiness all around.

 

But main purpose of this festival ought to be to remove the darkness of our inner self permanently.

 

Message: Care to be taken that the crackers used should be of low intensity and should produce less no or less noise pollution.

 

Diwali

 

Marks the return of Lord Rama

To his kingdom Ayodhya,

From his 14  years’ exile,

As ordained by his father,

The King Dhashratha of Ayodhya,

During exile full of toil and tribulations,

In the forests with no habitation

With Sita Mata and Sri Lakshmanji along,

He neutralized many a demons,

With his immense prowess,

Demons who desecrated the religious places,

Of worship of sadhus,

These demons respected no rules,

Of humanity and others,

Including Ravanas,

The demon King of Lanka,

And consequently decimated the wickedness,

From the Mother Earth,

The purpose for which Lord Vishu,

Had taken Ram Avtar.

 

The houses are spruced up,

To welcome the Lordess of Wealth and Wellbeing,

The Mother Lakshmi,

By fire-works and earthen wicks

The houses are illuminated

There is cooperative and happiness all around

Business people worship their books of accounts,

And pray for prosperity for the days to come,

People celebrate Diwali,

With traditional fervor and gaiety,

By praying at the temples,

With a pray for their welfare,

And those of their nears and dears

It is the festival of light.

Distributing sweets to relatives and friends,

Greetings and sweets are exchanged,

For each others’ prosperity.

 

O my dearest Lord,

And Mother Divine,

Bestow thy best wishes,

To one and all,

So that all ills are decimated,

Like the demons by Lord Rama.

And everyday may be a Diwali Day

For celebration with enthusiasm and gaiety.
