Life in colour- Black or Grey

We all have secrets

Don’t you agree?

What is the colour of those secrets?

Can you tell?

My friend, it has to be black!

“Some things are to be loved in pitch black secretly, intensely, and profoundly” Sindhhuja P

Do you prefer black or Dark?

I don’t know.

But I can tell the difference between black and dark.

Black is not negative and is said to be neutral.

Light is surviving because of darkness.

Sadly dark is given a bad name while light steals all the prizes.

Power of darkness

“Only in the darkness can you see the stars” Unknown

Food for thought

Is there any colour darker than black?

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Beauty is a light in the heart

Diwali is a perfect time for photographers in India, to try their skills in photographing the source of light in so many ways.

My friend, did you ever try photographing the fireworks?

It’s a sort of challenge and trial and error with the camera settings.

Simply try, try, try and each time adjust your settings accordingly.

“There is a great lamp with in you, and the rays of that lamp are your life. In these little lamps outside, the wick burns oil and then burns out. The lamp with in does not burn anything, but gives bliss” Prem Rawat

Celebration

“Faith is the fire that lights the flames” Lailah Gifty Akita

Diwali

Diwali, the festival of lights celebrated in India, falls on Thursday 4, November this year.

Diwali is a Sanskrit word meaning row of lights.

It’s one of the major festivals celebrated by the Hindus.

Diwali symbolises

  • The spiritual victory of light over darkness
  • Good over evil and
  • Knowledge over ignorance

All these things can lead to a peaceful world.

How light can lead to peace in this world?

“If there is light in the soul, there will be beauty in the person.

If there is beauty in the person, there will be harmony in the house.

If there is harmony in the house, there will be order in the nation.

If there is an order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.”

Chinese proverb

“Life’s true face is the skull” Nikos Kazantzakis

“Light always follows the path of the beautiful” Unknown

Well said.

What is our true beauty?

Our inherent beauty is covered by skin and flesh, once you remove them you get the original beauty.

The original beauty in the form of the skeleton is similar both for men and women.

That’s our actual beauty, appearance-wise.

Do we love it?

Ironically we hate to even have a glance.

We fear them (skelephobia).

Many say human skulls are ugly and scary.

My guess is people are scared because the very thought of a skull reminds one, of death.

But certain people who study medicine, forensic specialists and police personnel are used the skulls.

I understand that those who practice ‘black magic’ or witchcraft’ use humans and animal skulls.

What is the real definition of beauty? (when we are alive)

Strangely all of us come with different definitions.

Depends on individual mindset.

People see beauty in appearance, dress, jewellery, hairstyle, perfect body…and the list is long.

“People who look for only external beauty have not yet learnt the true meaning of beauty. True beauty is not in how people look. It is in how people love, care, and share”
Avijeet Das

My definition of beauty is being ‘happy’ irrespective of the events in one’s life.

Divine Light

“Everything happens in divine order. The good, the bad, the unexpected & the unfortunate. No matter what is in front of you, it’s part of your path. Follow, trust, believe, forgive, be grateful and keep pushing!!” Unknown

Images of God are an essential part of Hindu religious festivals.

Large images of Deity, studded with a series of lights glowing with different bright colours are common and shine brightly during the nighttime.

How are these Images with colourful lights made?

The picture of the Deity is sketched out in chalk on the ground, and bamboo is cut to form the frame accordingly. Now serial lights are placed along the outline of the picture and in the majority of the cases, electricians and artists join together to give a Divine appearance.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Shine bright

“A lamp does not speak., It introduces itself…through its light. Achievers never expose…themselves. But their achievements expose…them”  Unknown

 

Hindu Puja Room

Typical Hindu Puja room for a small family. You can notice a few sliver and brass lamps.

What is puja room?

The puja room is an intrinsic part of every Hindu household.

The puja room is the room, where family deities, idols, religious texts are kept and exclusively used for prayers.

It’s a sacred room with positive energy radiating to the other rooms.

As far as the Idols or frames of the deities (Hindu Gods are too many) concerned, the preference goes with the family tradition.

Every family selects one Ishta Devata, depending on that family’s particular tradition.

Ishta Devata is the chosen and beloved Deity of the family for centuries and the Puja room will have most of the images of this particular Deity.

Diya

“Faith is the fire that light the flames.” Lailah Gifty Akita

A lamp is lit and the Lord is worshipped every day in the morning and the evening in the puja room in front of the deity.

This lamp is known as DIYA, commonly made from clay

Diya lamps are also made of silver, gold or brass.

We tend to be selfish most of the times and Diya keeps us reminding us about being helpful to others especially those in needy.

“Be Diya in someone’s life, and keep the flame burning”  Unknown

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.

Chanting Shloka

One can Chanting the following Shloka while lighting the Diya

Shubham Karoti Kalyaannam-Aarogyam Dhana-Sampadaa |

Shatru-Buddhi-Vinaashaaya Diipa-Jyotir-Namostute ||

Diipa-Jyotih Para-Brahma Diipa-Jyotir-Janaardanah |

Diipo Haratu Me Paapam Diipa-Jyotir-Namostute ||

Meaning:

I pay my salutation (namaskara) to the light/lamp which brings auspiciousness; prosperity, good health, abundance of money and wealth, and the destruction of the intellect’s enemy. The light of the lamp represents the Supreme Brahman as well as Janardhana (Vishnu), let the light absolve the sins, I pay my salutations to this light/lamp.

This shloka is recited while lighting the lamp. Light is considered a symbol of auspiciousness, prosperity, and abundance in many cultures. It is believed that deepam is the symbol of knowledge.
