On Saturday, November 14, 2020, the celebration of DIWALI occurs. This Sanskrit term translates as “Festival of Lights”.
It is celebrated each year in the autumn (in late October or early November according to the Vedic calendar) as a time of praying for and meditating on both material and spiritual prosperity.
Sri Lakshmi, the feminine aspect of SOURCE which blesses us with abundance, is honored.
A “Puja” (“ceremony”) to Her is performed whereby the usual items involved are a flaming candle, incense, nuts and fruits, a prayer mala, and a small jar of sacred Chandana (Sandalwood) oil or a combination of fragrant flowery oils are on an altar.
Each item is individually encircled clock-wise around a statue or painting of Her three times at the third eye, then the heart, then the solar plexus, and the final encircling is done around the entire statue or painting four times.
A representation of an aspect of SOURCE is known as a “murti”.
Next, the devotee is comfortably seated, and with the prayer mala (which is usually of Lotus Seed, but it can also be Boddhi Seed or Sandalwood), the Lakshmi mantra is pronounced on each bead which is: “AUM SRI MAHA LAKSMAYA NAMAHA” (“Oh, Divine, I bow to the great giver of spiritual and material abundance”).
Then prayer is silently offered for specific needs. Afterwards, a brief time of meditation is done.
Finally, with the index finger of the right hand, the person performing this ritual places a bit of the sacred oil on his or her third eye in a clock-wise fashion.
This symbolizes receiving blessings from SOURCE in the form of Lakshmi.
Whenever an aspect of SOURCE is called upon, this is known as worshiping the Divine in “Saguna” (“with form”).
After this ritual, celebratory foods are eaten such as delicious nutritious vegetable dishes, rice, nuts, fruits, and fancy desserts.
People give gifts as well. DIWALI is celebrated by families and community groups.
