I always love relaxing on the beach.
Love relaxing on a parasols
For me, it’s the quiet place to keep my monkey mind at rest, which is otherwise impossible to quieten.
My friend, our lives are full of anxious moments.
You are not sure when you are at peace with yourself.
So this is what I do.
You can also try.
“When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.” Rainer Maria Rilke
After relaxing what do I do?
I just take a walk and my mind becomes more peaceful.

Any idea about ‘Diwali Diyas’?
You all must be knowing about the ‘Diwali Festival’ celebrated in India. Diwali is a festival of lights celebrated by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs. The festival is celebrated to honor the return of Lord Ram to his kingdom after 14 years of exile.
The festival symbolizes the victory of Light over Darkness.
A ‘Diwali Diya’ is a small lamp that is lit during Diwali. The diyas are made of clay with ghee or oil used as the fuel and cotton wool as the wick.
Significance of Diya
‘Diya’ is essential in Hinduism.
There is a deeper significance to the Diya. The oil in the diya symbolizes the dirt in the human mind — such as greed, jealousy, hatred, lust, etc — which human beings tend to nurture.
The cotton in the diya is symbolic of the Atma or the self or the soul. The diya presents light when the oil is burnt by the wick.
Hence, the lighting of the diyas signifies that one needs to get rid of the selfish and materialistic thoughts.
This frees one from all forms of sadness, guiding the path to enlightenment and to connect with the Supreme Being.-Source Deccan chronicle
