Today is Diwali! What a beautiful day!

I do not know why,but this is the holiday i love the most. I was so trilled and joyful when i saw it is today. Even the name is most beautiful,Festival of Lights. I love everything about it. The way it is celebrated,that spirit of joy and celebration,wonderful lights being lit,all decorations... So lovely!

Dear Sri Subramanian Sir,dear Sri Prasanth,

Thank You for kind wishes!

I wish You too Very Happy Diwali! May our Mother Bless You and Your families in every possible way!!!

With All love and prayers,



Light up all your lights, dear friends, and
Keep the backdoors of your houses well-shut this day,
For it is Diwali - the Indian festival of lights.

A free, omnipresent and all-knowing Goddess it is, and
One with a mind of bountiful, generous Lakshmi it is that
We are calling up on this Day of Lights, one
Who never has ever forsaken anyone
With a sincere heartful of golden ambitions,
That had invited the Goddess of Good Fortune's inspiring Self
Over to take a seat in one's own house.

Erhard Hans Josef Lang

HAPPY DIWALI TO ALL OUR FRIENDS!

The real deepavali is when we see the light inside?  AGA VILAKKU. I think this may be turned AGAL.
Bhagavan shows how to lit the inside jothi. Let us follow Him and see the jothi.

Wish you all happy deepavali

Dear Ramanaduliji, very poignant  reflection... It has made my deepavali.

Also agal vilaku may include like this, adding to yours -

Aga - aham,
Ill - Illam, (home)
Vilaku - Deep am, light, glow

Aha-Ill-Vilakku - ahallvilaku

Nice...

Happy Deepaavali.

Ramana Asramam wishes you a Happy Diwali.


Ashram wishes you and your loved ones a very happy Diwali. Today the worship at Bhagavan's shrine started at 4:30 AM. Here is a devotee?s experience on Diwali or Deepavali day in 1929 in Bhagavan?s Presence. "Bhagavan in His embodied state occupied our whole heart, being dear to us as father, mother, God and Guru, all in one. We were loath to leave His presence, be it night or day. We slept outside the Old Hall, and Bhagavan was always visible to us on the sofa from where we were.

On the night prior to Deepavali in 1929, the first year of my settling in the Ashram, Bhagavan suggested my going home for the ?Ganges? bath (Gangasnanam), To me (why, to all of us!) the very sight of Bhagavan is a bath in the Ganga, the sight of Bhagavan is the worship of Siva, the sight of Bhagavan is the fulfilment of every ritual and the practice of all austerities. Yet I did not want to go against the mandate of Bhagavan as I went home, late in the night. I was impatient to be back with Bhagavan, so I woke up my wife and children even at 2 am, finished the ceremonial Ganges bath, and hastened to His blessed Presence.

Bhagavan lay reclining on the sofa. It was about 3-30 am; I made the usual prostration and sat down by the sofa. All of a sudden an aura was visible around the head of Bhagavan. It was like the glory with clusters of evenly arranged flames, just as we see round the deities in our temple processions. Bhagavan?s face shone with beaming smiles. It appeared to me that on this occasion Bhagavan was giving darshan (gracious view) of Sri Nataraja, the Lord of the Cosmic Dance. In my ecstasy, I think I must have sung hymns from Thevaram, which I love as dearly as the Vedas. The vision lasted for half an hour, and then the glory vanished. At 4 a.m. Bhagavan sat up for His Pansupari. I related to Him what I had seen, and Bhagavan again gave a beaming smile."
Om Namo Bagavathe Sri Ramanaya
