Om Namah Shivaya!

Om Mahalakshmiyai Namonamaha
Om Vishnupriyayai Namonamaha
Om Dhanapradayai Namonamaha
Om Vishwajananyai Namonamaha!

Blessed Souls,
I wish all of you a very happy and prosperous Diwali. May this blessed day bring in your lives health, happiness, prosperity and contentment.

Diwali is celebrated all over India and also around the world. It is the Festival of Lights. There are a lot of legends associated with this festival. It is believed that in Dwapara Yuga, Lord Krishna killed the demon Narakasura on the day and thereby freed 16000 girls who were held captive by the demon.  Lord Rama and Sita Devi has significance as when Rama returned with Sita to Ayodhya after killing Ravana, the people of Ayodhya have welcomed their favourite Rama and Sita by lighting a row of lamps all over Ayodhya.  So essentially it celebrates the victory of light over all darkness of evil.

Goddess Lakshmi is also believed to have arisen from the churning of the ocean on this auspicious day. So Lakshmi Devi is revered on Diwali. Doing Lakshmi Puja on this day gives us immense happiness, fame and prosperity.

Each custom and tradition has unique significance in our lives. By observing the rituals we get immense satisfaction and contentment. All this has been framed by the  ancient Rishis of Sanathana Dharma for the good of mankind as it helps us to walk on the path of righteousness by illuminating our souls. Such stories elevate our lives from mere existence to spiritual enlightenment.

May God help to drive away all lethargy and darkness and bring you light and vitality. The light and brightness of your soul should radiate all around and remove the darkness of this world.

Let us annhilate the inner demonic tendencies and let us illuminate the light of wisdom in ourselves.

May this Diwali bring peace and love all around!

Asatoma Sadgamaya
Tamosama Jyotirgamaya
Mrityorma Amruthamgamaya
Loka Samastha Sukinoh Bhavantu

From untruth to Truth
From darkness to Light
From mortality to Immortality
May peace prevail to all on earth!

Hari Om Sri Gurubhyo Namaha!
Om Sri Mahalakshmiye Namaha

With love and blessings,
Swamy Atmachaithanya
