A big part of Diwali is cleaning our house. We all do it every year during this time though I am sure we all do it otherwise too. So this Diwali how about cleaning our minds and intellects too!!
Another tradition we maintain for Diwali, buying new clothes. It’s being followed for years. Even in our family Diwali meant going for shopping and getting clothes for each and every family member. Everyone keep aside their old clothes and put on the new ones. How about getting rid of our old unwanted disturbing habit like our anger, jealousy and worry!! Let us try to emerge a better person where we can shower more love on others and in turn get a blissful and happy life.
All of us who are into business, we settle all our old account books today and begin new ones. Why not follow the same with our life’s accounts too?? So many of us have very bitter and unpleasant relationships, let’s begin those again in a new positive way.
We burn firecrackers; why not also burn the undesirable desires also this Diwali. Sweets are shared, how about sharing really meaningful sweet and true wishes!!!
We all connect Goddess Lakshmi with the Goddess of wealth. Yes true, she is the Goddess of wealth. But have you noticed her name? It comes from the word “Laksh” meaning Target or Goals. I am sure if we can really experience Diwali this way, we can get the ultimate goal of heavenly perfection. I am sure Goddess Lakshmi would be happier if we work to collect the wealth of goodwill and love from our near and dear ones.
Wishing all of you a very happy Diwali and hope we all can actually experience the festival and not just celebrate it.
