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.

Although we realize that SOURCE is eternally everywhere at all times, and thus, we can pray at any time, specific rituals assist us in elevating to greater heights of consciousness in this “Now” as cosmic events cause intensified LIGHT to bless creation. It has been taught that the flame of a candle represents DIVINE LIGHT, and the smoke of incense represents DIVINE BREATH. Of course, daily sunlight is also representative of the INFINITE LIGHT.

One of the many “Light Activation Symptoms” (LAS) is that dreams have become much more vivid in recent years. People may awaken each morning feeling a sense of grogginess, and it may take a few moments to decipher which consciousness dimension they are truly in at that moment of awakening.

Powerful Light Blast!!! – “Royal July” Part 2 – Dr Schavi

At 10:29 AM (EST) on Saturday, July 3, 2021, the Great Central Sun has transmitted a blast of LIGHT to the Sun of our galaxy in the form of the most powerful of solar flares, and it has arrived on our planet—“X-Class”! It is rated as an “X.1” flare, and more of this same strongest type are possible with perhaps higher numerical values coming in days and weeks ahead.

The month of July is the beginning of the final six months of our twelve-month year. July of 2021 is especially royal. On Friday, July 9th, at 9:17 AM (EST) there will be a New Moon in the sign of Cancer (Tropical Zodiac) which represents the GREAT DIVINE MOTHER who has many sacred names such as MUT-EM-UA (“Water of the Virgin Mother”), MARI-EN (“Great One”), ASET (“Throne”), TARA (“Star” and also “Land of Light”), SRI MATRE (“Holy Mother” and also “Divine Mother”), ALLAT (“The God”—which was first revealed before the male form of ALLAH), and thousands of others.

With the steady increases in solar flare levels (charged particles of electromagnetic radiation from the Sun)—the ethereal “thoughts” and “emotions” of our brightly shining gateway to the Great Central Sun— and the solar winds which are filled with the plasma from the flares, we must understand how the term “POWER” relates to Earth/Gaia’s reception of these energetics. “Power” levels are primarily expressed as “frequency” and “amplitude”—a concert of varying dance rhythms on the “cosmic stage”.

Now that June’s “Super Full Moon” has occurred, its energetic frequency is still potent since it will not close its portal until Sunday, June 27th. However, both New Moons and Full Moons as well as solstices, equinoxes, eclipses, and all types of solar energy such as flares, winds, etc. send out their vibratory power for weeks and months beyond their peaks.

Light Activation Symptoms – Dr Schavi

Many people are experiencing “Light Activation Symptoms” (LAS), and one of the most challenging ones is exhaustion (tiredness, fatigue, feeling drained of energy). This type of symptom can come from not just the intense LIGHT that is streaming into our planet and into us, but it also comes from the world-wide stressful situations of political and sociological turmoil which cannot be denied because to do so is to be delusional and to live in a fantasy world.

On Thursday, June 24, 2021, at approximately 3:00 P.M. (EST), the Moon of our planet, Earth/Gaia (known as “Khonsu” in Medu Neter and as “Chandra” in Sanskrit), will be “Super Full” in the sign of Capricorn in the Tropical Zodiac. The portal officially opened on Sunday, June 20th.—the same day as the arrival of the Summer and Winter Solstices (in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres). A “Super Full Moon” is closer to our planet than a typical monthly Full Moon, and thus, it seems brighter as well.
