Lord Shiva is known as the destroyer of evil in Hindu mythology. He is a fearsome warrior and an elegant dancer. He is great. It is rumored that He lives on Mount Kailash, that He was never born; He exits since the birth of universe. His wife is Ma Parvati. Lord Shiva has a unique talent of dance, the Tandav, which can kill and so is called the Natraj. He has a third eye which is always closed but when He is enraged He opens them and whoever is before Him will burn down. Some ladies fast on particular days so that they can have husbands like Shiva. He has a great role in Ramayana too; as Hanuman. All I can say is Shiva is دن Shiva is night. Shiva is you, Shiva is me. I bow to Lord Shiva.

Diwali is known as the festival of lights. It falls exactly 20 days after Vijay Dashmi. We light lamps called diyas to illuminate the dark. It is known that Lord Ram came back to Ayodhya with Ma Sita and Lord Lakshman. It was dark and that's why people lit their ways with diyas. Hence this دن is دن is known as Deepawali.

This دن we worship Ma Lakshmi for wealth, Lord Ganesh for intellect and Ma Saraswati for knowledge. Children get new clothes and gifts. Everyone is happy on Diwali.

But we should be careful on this دن as thieves roam the streets.

On Diwali our homes should be spotless, bright, there should be no trash and on Dhanteras, which lands 2 days before Diwali we should buy something precious like gold, silver, etc that we can afford. Only then will Lakshmi enter our house.

Shubh Deepawali!

Once Brahma and Vishnu were talking and talking and talking endlessly. In everything, they are endless! When they are silent, they do not utter a word for thousands of years; and then again, when they resume talking, they can talk for thousands of years uninterruptedly.

On this occasion, they were enjoying one of their birthless and deathless talks when, all of a sudden, Shiva appeared. For some reason, Shiva sometimes assumes a very rough manner. On that day, everything about him was uncouth. Shiva is not polished like the other cosmic gods. Around his neck there are skulls; he is adorned with...
