Happy Diwali/ शुभ दीपावली

Diwali prayer:
Let us, this year, light up a life,
Let us, this year, cleanse the within
Let us, this year, distribute the sweetmeats of kind words and RAKs(Random Acts of Kindness)..
Happy Diwali.. now, and forver...

इस साल की प्रार्थना :
इस साल, एक जीवन मे ज्योति ला पाएं,
इस साल, अंतर्मन को साफ़ करें॥
इस साल, मीठे बांटें शब्द, और कुछ अच्छे कर्म
दीपावली की शुभकामना, और सारे साल की प्रार्थना
शुभ दीपावली !!

एक अन्तर मन है, जिस का बढ़ना ज़रूरी है,
एक अन्तर दूरी है, जिस का घटना ज़रूरी है।

I'd like to wish you happy Diwali - I'm no expert but isn't the Buddhist swastika reverse of the one you laid out, the hooks on the cross pointing the other way?

EXSENO said...

I don't know what 'Diwali' is but that certainly is a beautiful prayer.

So in your tradition I wish you my friend and all of my Indian friends a
'Happy Diwali'.

How do we know said...

Hi Bhai with chai: Bahut saal pehle, Doordarshan ne sikhaya :-)

Hi Tanvi: happy Diwali to u too! How was it?

Hi Phos: True! Thats why all festivals are in winters methinks. Too bad ur comp had to go for maintenance on THE day of elections.. hope u will post soon after that.

Hi Dharma: :-) u too.

Hi Human being: Where have u gone? I have been staring at ur last post.. and blankly just staring !

Hi exseno: :-) Its a Festival of lights.. a lot like Christmas.. u give gifts, you decorate the house, there is lighting, lots of goodies to eat and so on.. I call this the Indian Christmas.. in its most original form, the festival lasts 5-7 days! Most people now do just 3 days of celebrating.

Bhai with Chai said...

ohh.. i never knew that.. i esp came back to read that quote!
