Happy New Year 2021

“In Hebrew teaching Ruach is the part of the flame closest to the wick. Nephesh is the part of the wick closest to the flame.” J. Earp

Lighting the Diya twice a day is a custom for Hindus and this is part of the prayer. All the ceremonies start with the lighting of the lamp. ( Diya is a small cup-shaped oil lamp having a wick)

Significance of Diya

The oil in Diya symbolizes dirt in the mind.

The cotton symbolizes self or soul.

Diya presents a light when oil is burnt by the wick. Hence lighting of diyas signifies that one needs to get rid of selfish and materialistic thoughts. This frees one from all sadness, leading to enlightenment. source-Deccan chronicle.

Do you know the Priceless Wick?

‘Let mercy be the cotton

Contentment the thread

Continence the knot

And truth the twist

O! Priest, if you have such a thread

Do give it to me

It will not wear out nor get soiled

Nor be burnt nor lost, says Nanak

Blessed are those who go about

Wearing that thread” Guru Nanak Dev ( Guru Nanak is founder of Sikhism )

Dear readers…Wishing you all ‘ A HAPPY NEW YEAR’

God bless you.

Stay safe and take care.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
