Happy Diwali: Shine Bright Like a Diamond
Lalita Chandika Temple
November 14, 2020
Namaste Friends and Family,
Join us online tonight for the Lakshmi Puja with Shree Maa at 5:00 pm PST.
Maa blessed us last night with a beautiful Kali Puja to take away our darkness. Tonight we celebrate the victory of good over evil with a homa to Mahalakshmi.
Diwali is one of the most favored Hindu holidays. The celebration is a reminder to share our love and shine our light on humanity, nature, and the world at large.
The name "Diwali" is derived from the word deepavali, which means a "row of lights, or lamps."
On Diwali, we celebrate by lighting lamps and placing them all around the house and temple.
The spiritual significance of lighting the lamps is to remind us of the importance of sharing our own Inner Light that is inherent in all of us.
Let's take this time to be with Shree Maa, who can dissolve our darkness and increase our higher intellect on Diwali.
This is what is meant by the victory of good over evil.
For Sadhana today, Shree Maa recommends lighting lamps and chanting the Lakshmi Ashtakam.
Love and Blessings for a spectacular Diwali!
