RE: Diwali celebrations today as a billion lamps light the way back home

in #mindfullife2 years ago

wow, now words. Thanks for writing about Diwali so beautifully. I am from Kerala and hereabouts, Diwali is celebrated as the festival of Lord Krishna's victory over a demon NArakasura. Anyways, it is the celebration of light over darkness and let us all light the lamp in our heart
Stay blessed

Happy to be of service, thank you for your kind comment. I have read the pastimes of Krishna in the Bhagavat Purana (aka Srimad Bhagavatam) in the 10th canto or volume. There it describes the life of Krishna from birth (jamna) all the way through childhood, the killing of the various demons, and into maturity when he went to the capital city to become a prince. Interesting to hear that you celebrate that pastime on Diwali in Kerala.
Namaste, Vanakam

♥ welcome and thanks
