DIWALI GREETINGS TO ALL

Good morning dear readers and bloggers:
Our dear spiritual friend Harbans has produced a great article about the Indian festival of Diwali and I would like to share it with you. Even though it is a little bit long, it is full of information about the Hindu religious beliefs that form the basis of this event.
For all the believers, we wish a Happy Diwali to you and your family. Being so close to our own birthday, we feel obliged to do some atonement; privately we will reflect on our recent deeds and try to improve our relationships with our family, colleagues and friends. This festival feels like the ritual confession of the Catholic Church but in a more congenial-community minded setting.
Enjoy this great article and try to reflect about these moral lessons.

What do you think? Please tell us.

Don’t leave me alone.

In self obedience and  self restraint

For us to follow without hang-ups.

After completing 14 years’ exile, a period so long

Lord Rama with brother Lakshmnana

Along with Maa Sita

On the directions of their father…
