Observations & meditations on the day-to-day

A very Happy Diwali.

This is to wish everyone a very Happy Diwali.

And to thank my friend and teacher Prabhat Poddar at the Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry for reminding us that, as we decorate our homes with lamps to invite in Laxmi the Goddess of wealth, so we should also decorate our souls with the radiant fire of the diya.

Notice the correlation here between cleansing and abundance: fire is associated both with the eradication of blocks and the gift of abundance. The purification of the path of purpose and the potential for prosperity are twin facets of a single reality.
