AKGInfotech.com wishes its readers a very Happy Diwali
Diwali (or Deepawali) is the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It’s the festival of lights which literally illumines the country with its brilliance, brightness and dazzles all with its joy.
Diwali (Dipavali in Sanskrit) means row of lamps is a Hindu festival of lights. During the celebration, temples, homes, shops and office buildings are brightly illuminated.
Why Do we Celebrate Diwali?
Diwali is celebrated to honor Ram Chandra, the seventh avatar (incarnation of the god Vishnu). On this day Ram returned after 14 yearsof exile during which he fought and won a battle against the demon king, Ravana.
People lit their houses to celebrate his victory over evil (light over darkness). The goddess of happiness and good fortune, Lakshmi, also figures into the celebration. It is believed that she roams the Earth on this day and enters the house that is pure, clean, and bright.
Diwali is usually celebrated eighteen days after the Dussehra. The cleaning of houses, painting walls, decorating every entry with colors and decorating every corner of the house with row of lights etc, clearing away the unnecessary elements and old clutter from your surroundings are the activities we enthusiastically look forward to doing every year when Diwali comes.
Remember that to make space for new things in life, you must be willing to let go of old junk and broken down items that are beyond repair.
Many Hindus associate the festival with Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, and wife of Lord Vishnu.
Similar to the Thanksgiving festival in the United States, it’s the time of the year when people come home to spend time together as a family. Thank God for these people in your life and let them know that you care on a regular basis. This is what makes the world go around.
On Diwali evening we worship Lakshmi, Ganesh and Saraswati. Bring out your silver coins and offer them to bless your wealth. Seek abundance as well as spiritual wealth and guidance in finding your lakshya, or true purpose in this life.
Wish u and your family a very HAPPY DIWALI. May God fulfill all your dreams and bless you with health, wealth and happiness.
In some parts of India, the day after Diwali is marked with the Govardhan Puja and Diwali Padva, which is dedicated to the relationship between wife and husband.
