12 months and the Sanskrit connection

The English months are not in English; they are surprisingly connected with Sanskrit.

Do you know what December means; Das means ten and Ambar means sky, so December means the tenth sky.

Nav means nine in Sanskrit. November means the ninth sky.

How December became the 12th month, while Navamber became the 11th month...and more...

Diwali Day 3 - LAKSHMI PUJA

How is it celebrated?
The most important day of the celebrations is the third day – Lakshmi Puja.This is the day when the sun enters its second course. This day is considered to be very auspicious, in spite of it being the darkest night. The impenetrable darkness of the night slowly disappears as small twinkling lamps light up entire cities.

It is believed that Lakshmi walks on this planet on this night and showers blessings for abundance and prosperity.

This evening people perform Lakshmi Puja and distribute homemade sweets to everyone.

Historical events
On this very auspicious day, many saints and great people have taken Samadhi and left their mortal bodies. The great seers include Lord Krishna and Bhagwan Mahavir.

This is also the very day when Lord Rama returned home with Sita and Lakshman after 14 years in exile.

According to the great epic ‘Mahabharata’, it was ‘Kartik Amavashya’ when the Pandavas appeared from their 12 years of banishment as a result of their defeat in the hands of the Kauravas at the game of dice (gambling). The subjects who loved the Pandavas celebrated the day by lighting the earthen lamps.

Importance
Lakshmi is considered as the goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), fortune, and the embodiment of beauty.
Our ancient sages beautifully depicted the divine qualities such a beauty, love, prosperity, compassion, faith, wealth, power, knowledge, wisdom in the form of Mother Divine. Also attributes like sleep, hunger, thirst, delusion, ignorance are considered as her different forms. 

It is said that as we praise something or someone, that quality starts reflecting in us. So by praising the vastness and beauty of the Supreme energy which beholds this entire creation or universe, we invoke that Consciousness in us and in our lives.

So do not get confused that Lakshmi is someone ,some person/goddess sitting somewhere. She is present in this entire creation in various forms.

Mahalakshmi denotes a great wealth, a wealth that includes the eight aspects as below:
1. Adi Lakshmi is the memory of the source. When we forget that we are part of the entire creation, we feel small and insecure. Adi Lakshmi is that aspect which connects us to our source, bringing strength and calmness to the mind.
2. Dhana Lakshmi is the aspect of material wealth and 
3. Vidya Lakshmi is the aspect of knowledge, skills and talents.
4. Dhanya Lakshmi manifests as wealth in the form of food. There is a saying ‘jaise ann, waise man’ – implying that the food we eat has a direct impact on our mind. The right amount and type of food, eaten at the right time and place affects our body and mind positively.
5. Santana Lakshmi manifests as wealth in the form of progeny and creativity. People full of creativity, talented and skillful in the arts are bestowed with this aspect of Lakshmi. 
6. Dhairya Lakshmi manifests as wealth in the form of courage 
7. Vijaya Lakshmi is the aspect that manifests as victory. 
8. Bhagya Lakshmi is the aspect of good luck and prosperity. 
At different times in life, different aspects of this energy manifest in a person.

DAY 2 of Diwali – NARAKA CHATURDASHI

How is it celebrated?
On the second day, Naraka Chaturdashi there is a tradition to wake up early in the morning and have a bath before sunrise.

Historical event:
King Narakasur - ruler of Pragjyotishpur (a province to the South of Nepal) – after defeating Lord Indra had snatched away the magnificent earrings of Aditi (the Mother Goddess) and had imprisoned sixteen thousand daughters of many saints and people from the society.

On the day previous to Naraka Chaturdashi, Lord Krishna killed the demon and liberated the imprisoned damsels and also recovered those precious earrings of Aditi. 

The womenfolk massaged scented oil to his body and gave him a good bath to wash away the filth from his body. Hence, this tradition of an early morning bath signifies the victory of the Divine over Evil. This day represents the heralding of a future full of goodness.

Day 1 of Diwali – DHANTRAYODASHI / DHANTERAS 

How is it celebrated?

On the first day of celebration, Dhantrayodashi, houses and business premises are renovated and decorated. The entrances are made colourful with lovely traditional motifs of Rangoli designs to welcome the Goddess of wealth and prosperity (Lakshmi).

To indicate her long awaited arrival, small footprints are drawn with rice flour and vermillion powder all over the house. Lamps are kept burning all through the nights. Believing this day to be auspicious, women purchase some gold or silver or some new utensils, and in some parts of India, cattle are also worshipped.

Importance

This day is considered to be the birthday of Dhanvantari – the God of Ayurveda or the Physician of Gods, and celebrated as Dhanvantari Jayanti. The consciousness which exhibits itself as the knowledge and science of ayurveda and health through all the beings is honored. Multiple hands with multiple things symbolize that there are many ways in which the divine consciousness acts and works and serves the beings. Blue colour symbolizes the infinity and vastness depicted through a finite body. This one life saving energy is represented as Dhanvantari.

On this day, lamps are lit all night in reverence to the Lord Yama – the God of Death and hence also known as ‘Yamadeepdaan’. This is supposed to take away the fear of an untimely death. Remembering death makes one aware of his life. Forgetting ones past and living in the present moment is what the remembrance of death does. Knowing that the spirit is immortal while the body is subject to extinguish, lamps are lit on this day.

There is also a custom to take out all the wealth, gold coins, jewelry, money and do puja. The secret behind this is - Taking out all the wealth and thanking and feeling abundance for all that the Divine has given us. Recognizing this and feeling grateful for all that one has and feeling abundance fills ones life with abundance and joy. There is a saying in Bible- 'Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him'

Wish you a very Happy Ganesh festival! Ganpati Bappa Morya!

"Ganesha is unborn, unchanging, formless, the absolute one..."

Now the question arises that why this supreme power is depicted in the form of an elephant?

We are all familiar with the story of how Ganesha became the elephant-headed God.

1. Isn't the story very strange?
2. Why should Parvati have dirt on her body and so much dirt that she could make a statue out of it?
3. Didn't the all-knowing Lord Shiva recognize his own son?
4. Was Shiva, the epitome of peace, so short-tempered, egoistic and cruel that he cut off the head of his own son?
5. Couldn't Lord Shiva have a little patience and wait outside for some time?
6. An elephant's head, which itself is very big, on a small boy's body?
7. Also, Ganesha's vehicle is a mouse. So what we have is a human body on a tiny mouse, and a big elephant's head on top of it! Isn't it very strange?

Janmashtami - Birth of Lord Krishna
The beauty in our ancient stories is that they were never made location-specific or time-specific. Ramayana or Mahabharata are not just events that happened a long time ago, they are happening everyday in our lives. The essence of these stories is eternal. ...
