November 14--World Gratitude Day
Sri Bhagavan feels so strongly about the importance of the state of gratitude that he proclaimed November 14 to
be World Gratitude Day. He says that, "...gratitude is the highest expression of emotion in humans, as it
signifies the evolution of one's consciousness." Gratitude Day is now observed the world over.
As part of your gratitude to everyone and everything in you life, you are asked to dedicate, not just the day,
but all of November to recognizing the valuable parts and presence they play in your life--all the large things as
well as seemingly insignificant moments. As a result, gratitude can have huge benefits to you both physically
and psychologically. You can read more about the benefits of gratitude here.
A Gratitude Day message from the Oneness University--
Diwali (pronounced: dee VAL e) is also called Divali, Deepawali, Deepavali, and the Festival of
Lights. It's marked by the lighting of cotton wicks in oil-filled, earthen- ware lamps, called
diyas, that are used to light the perimeters and parapets of temples, homes, and set adrift in rivers and
The festival honors Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, and the diyas are also meant to light her way into
homes. Celebratory activities include exchanging gifts and sweets, cleaning and decorating homes, wearing new
clothes, shopping, feasting, and fireworks displays.
Just as the traditions of Christmas festivities are celebrated differently in various parts of the
world, the various traditions comprising Diwali vary immensely, including the dates it's held. Since it
usually occurs during the time of the New Moon, the myriad of lights, candles, and fireworks symbolize
victory over the reign of darkness, and the triumph of good over evil, as evil spirits are believed to be
reduced to ashes in the fireworks.
Light emerging from the New Moon phase is fresh and signifies a time of New Beginnings. It's
a time when you can release the old (clean house), set new goals (wear new clothes), and your new wishes take root
(good wins over evil).
2013 Diwali prayer from our Oneness Guides--
May the brilliance of every light that is lit this Diwali
dispel the inner darkness and ignorance of our minds,
helping us to attain, for all times to come,
Exalted Oneness and Deeper Awakening.
May you enjoy a joyous Festival of Lights!
Happy Deepavali to you and your family!
