'This is the new moon of Diwali, the 5-night Hindu “festival of lights” and the most important night of the year to honor Laksmi, the goddess of wealth and good fortune. It is celebrated as the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. ' from anandastrology.com -
I miss this time in India. I used to spend every October and November in Mysore and it's been two years since i'm able to make it during that season. It's a special time of devotion, reflection and celebration. I miss the devotional aspect of life in India, I'm grateful to be here for fall however as it is such a special time when you can observe earth transitioning in color and shape (or at least it used to ). What I don't miss is the fireworks:) there is a tradition of doing firecracker explosions for 5 consecutive nights. Indians explode stuff everywhere as an exterior symbolism of breaking the dark with light. The explosion of the soul. Even though this is a beautiful metaphor it's less beautiful when you can't sleep because thin sare exploding all around you and your practice time is 4am lol.
