How to celebrate Diwali-the festival of lights?

Diwali is a festival of lights celebrated all across India. It signifies victory of good over evil.
You celebrate Diwali by doing the following:
  • Clean your house and surroundings
  • Offer prayers, do pooja and meditate
  • Forgive your enemies
  • Eat delicious food-especially sweets
  • Burst crackers (fire works)
  • Visit relatives and friends
What is very important to note is that you get a grand opportunity to clean up your environment.While you clean up your outer environment, take time to clean up your inner environment too.

Here are the areas to focus upon and eliminate-inner and outer:
  1. Negative thoughts that have accumulated
  2. Bad habits
  3. Hatred
  4. Doubts and fears
  5. Prejudices
  6. Watching negative TV programs
  7. Surfing Internet sites that are negative
  8. Relinquishing bad company
  9. Reading trashy novels
  10. Unproductive routines
You can make up your own list or use the above list as a starter. Take advantage of the mood and momentum that this festival has brought in.
Change for the good, while you enjoy every moment of Diwali.

Happy Diwali!
