The Celebration Of Diwali

The Celebration Of Diwali. By Dr. Schavi Ali M. Ali

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.

The Celebration Of Diwali - Sri Lakshmi

Lakshmi

The Celebration Of Diwali

Homes and temples are colorfully decorated the day before DIWALI, and children often draw feet on a sheet of paper, cut them out, and place them at the front door of their houses symbolizing Lakshmi coming into the home. Small gold coins are also sometimes placed on the home altar.

Some people mistakenly refer to this ancient sacred time as the “Indian Christmas”. It has nothing to do with traditional Christmas celebrations, although it is certainly a time of honoring Divine energy and helping those in need and gifting others.

It is interesting and wonderful that all over the world there are certain celebrations especially meant for helping others and for remembering that we are blessed by the Divine intervention of SOURCE.

Sri Lakshmi is depicted in statues and in paintings dressed in a beautiful red or deep fuchsia dress decorated with golden threads.

She holds a vase that is pouring out with gold coins in Her right lower arm, and in Her other arms, She holds lovely pink lotus flowers.

In the Vedic tradition, aspects of the Divine are depicted with several arms because this represents SOURCE (which is most often referred to as the “Divine Mother” or as the “Divine Absolute”) reaching out ready to embrace and protect all creation.

Lakshmi is also surrounded by elephants with upraised trunks who spray Her with refreshing water.

Lakshmi has long flowing black hair, and Her skin is most often dark brown; but sometimes, it is given a deep pink hue. In the Vedic tradition, the color red represents love and passion, and the color pink is Divine Love.
This is why brides wear the color red or deep pink when a Vedic ceremony is performed.

DIWALI is not merely celebrated by those of the Asian ethnicity.

It can be celebrated by anyone who respects and understands the ancient Divinely-revealed spiritual principles of the Vedic path which is known in the scriptures as SANATANA DHARMA (“Eternal Path”).

The word that most people are familiar with, “Hinduism”, is not Sanskrit and will not be found in the Vedic scriptures.

This term is from the Greek language and tends to be used because thousands of years ago, when the people who lived in the Indus-Kush Valley were discovered, they were called “Hindus”.

The word “Vedic” is from the Sanskrit phoneme root “Vid” which means “knowledge”; and thus, anyone can be “Vedic” who follows the path of SANATANA DHARMA.

He or she is not following the mistaken title “Hinduism”.

Yet, a person does not have to be an initiate of this path in order to perform its rituals or recite its mantras. It is a universal path.

However, those who are indeed initiates perform other types of additional rituals as well and have a specific type of lifestyle involving foods eaten or not eaten, daily activities, particular prayer times, etc.

The ancient name “Bharata” is the correct one for what most people know as “India”.

Recently, the people there voted to return to using their ancient name. Linguistically, “Bharata” translates as “Land of the Light of the Soul”.

Long long ago—many thousands of years ago—during a former “Golden Age”, the continents that we recognize today as “Africa” and “Asia” were one huge continental land mass known as “Alkebu-lan”.

Its Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and floods over many ages separated the land masses into what we identify with today.

The word “Pangea” is also used in terms of numerous land masses of Earth/Gaia being fused together. The phoneme “Pan” means “All”.

During DIWALI giving knowledge is also considered as giving a gift, and so books are excellent gifts to extend to others too.

The greeting on DIWALI is “JAI DIWALI!” which is “VICTORY TO DIWALI”. Therefore, we are saying: “Victory to the Festival of Lights!”

This year DIWALI (which will be done virtually in many cases) occurs on the same day that Mars moves direct ( Saturday, November 14th) in Tropical Zodiac Aries (New Starts, Leadership, New Ideas) and in Sidereal Zodiac Pisces (Spiritual Elevation) and also the day before the Super New Moon in Tropical Zodiac “Scorpio” (Transformation) and in Sidereal Zodiac Libra (Balance) on Sunday, November 15th.

We are going to have an auspicious weekend of cosmic energetics.

The vibrations of DIWALI as well as those of the cosmic events mentioned will not be just on the days that they occur.

Their energetics will continue throughout the final weeks of 2020 and well into 2021 as the human collective steadily focuses upon love, peace, health, and abundance for the entire planet and galaxy.

For those who will not be joining many of us in celebrating DIWALI, consider offering special prayers according to your path for blessings for Earth/Gaia.

Remember, we are actually “Galactic”. Other names for our varying ethnicities are only sociological terms for convenience in studying history’s time lines.

We are all from one Divine Parent—SOURCE!

We are siblings.

If novices to “Astro-Physics” were to gaze through a high-powered telescope at the heavens, they would be amazed at all of the sparkling stars and planets, hazy galaxies, surges of strange plasma-like substances, and even objects which seem to move back and forth and up and down and then soar quickly away. Yet, even professional “Astro-Physicists” and “Solar Physicists” are regularly baffled by what they see with their sophisticated technological devices.

The Week Of Solar Intensity! – Dr Schavi

Energies are intensifying as the week of the “Annular Solar Eclipse” has arrived. The word “annular” does not refer to “annual” as in something that occurs yearly. The term “annular” is from the Latin word “annulus” which translates as “little ring”. However, the fact that the Sun of our galaxy is 108 times the circumference of Earth/Gaia according to ancient Vedic scriptures certainly shows that the “Annular Solar Eclipse” will not have a “little ring”!

In Olympic sports games, the highest achievement is receiving the “Gold Medal”; the second-place winner is awarded the “Silver Medal”; and the third-place winner is awarded the “Bronze Medal”. Each individual has worked diligently in his or her category and performs their best. Even those who did not win medals in their categories have worked hard to succeed at their sport.

Cosmic energetics occur both inside and outside of our solar system. Thus, LIGHT frequencies soar throughout the cosmos (also known as the “multiverse”) and bathes every universe, galaxy, and planet. The LIGHT elevates sentient beings to higher states of consciousness which creates capabilities far beyond what is currently realized.

Now that Mercury is officially retrograde in Gemini (Tropical Zodiac—May 29th to June 22nd) and the Sun is also in Gemini until June 21st and Venus is in Gemini until June 3rd and all of these planetary placements are squaring Neptune in Pisces (Neptune will be in Pisces until March of the year 2025), the chakras constituting the awakening of the pineal gland (third eye and crown) will be given an upgrade in LIGHT QUOTIENTS.

Periodically, the magnetic polarity of our Sun flips as solar winds whip around its equatorial arena like the wide whirls of a ballerina’s skirt. The term “polarity” is defined as something with opposite frequencies. The change in polarity of our Sun is known as a “Heliospheric Current Sheet”.

Now that the “Super Full Moon Eclipse” has occurred (Wednesday, May 26th), we are now in a “Cosmic Sanctuary” after having been at the entrance to the “Eclipse Portal” and the “Mercury Retrograde” (the height of which is May 29th to June 22nd with a “post-shadow” until July 12th). We have entered a quiet space of reflection and should now be more inner-directed rather than outer-oriented even while still performing family or career responsibilities.
