Diwali Blessings from Pujya Swamiji

In celebration of this joyous Diwali occasion, one can see beautifully lit oil lamps and candles glowing in the darkness of night throughout India and wherever Indians have settled in the world. We line our homes, our rooms, our offices and our streets with brightly shining diyas. However, on this day we must not only light beautiful lamps in our homes and offices, but we must light the lamp in our hearts. The Divine Light Within Within each of us shines the Divine Light. The Divine Presence is not only everywhere outside of...

Blessings on Diwali

May this New Year Be Clean, Green & Serene Dear Divine Souls, I hope that — by God’s divine grace — this finds you all in the best of health and happiness at this sacred and auspicious time of Diwali, the Festival of Light. Diwali is a holiday of joy; it is the time when we gather with loved ones, celebrating our family, our friends and the prosperity that the light of God has bestowed upon us. And yet, this precious time of Diwali offers us so much more than the lamps, parties...

Krishna Janmasthmi Blessings

Dear Divine Souls, I hope that – by God’s grace – this finds you and all your loved ones in the best of health and happiness at this holy time of Janmasthami.

It is celebrated at midnight on the eighth day of the dark fortnight in the month of Bhadrapada (August-September).

Diwali Blessings from Pujya Swamiji

It is that sacred time of Diwali, the Festival of Light! On this day as we light beautiful lamps in our homes, we must not only marvel at the glory and splendor, but we must also take the significance of the light into our lives.  We must warmly welcome the Divine into our hearts and into our lives, as the people of Ayodhya welcomed back Bhagawan Rama The Divine Light Within As we light the oil lamps in our homes and temples we must also remember to kindle the lamp within. Within...

Diwali Blessings: Lighting Lamps, Becoming Light, & Welcoming the Divine

Dear Divine Souls, I hope that — by God’s Grace — this finds you in the best of health and happiness at this sacred and divine time of Diwali, the Festival of Light! From high in the sky, the beautifully burning lights of Diwali can be seen, illuminating the nation of India (and so many nations around the world where Indians live) in a kaleidoscopic symphony of colours. The lights of Diwali are viewable even by NASA satellite! Fascinatingly the division between countries, that which divides us — where one country ends...

Guru Purnima Blessings

Dear Divine Souls, I hope that – by God’s grace – this finds you and all your loved ones in the best of health and happiness at this sacred time. Today marks the holy day dedicated to the Guru. The full moon of the Guru.  However, the Guru’s light is always full. The light of the Guru never dissipates or wanes. There is no such thing as the “half-moon” of the Guru or quarter-moon or sliver-of-a-moon of the Guru. The light and grace of the Guru is purna, always full, always constant.   That’s what...

Diwali Blessings

At this divine time of Diwali we line our homes, our rooms, our offices and our streets with brightly shining diyas. The illuminated lamps signify the people of Ayodhya’s love for Bhagawan Rama and their joy at his return.  On this day, however, we must light not only beautiful lamps in our homes, but we must light the lamp in our hearts. Within each of us shines the Divine Light. The Divine Presence is not only everywhere outside of us, it is also within us. In the Bhagavad Gita, Bhagawan Krishna...
