Group Meditation – Diwali Festival at the Birla Center
The Indian festival of Diwali, also called the Festival of lights, will be celebrated at the Birla Wellness Center in Chénéville with a group meditation Sunday, October 27, 2019 between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00pm. We would be delighted to have you join us and participate in this traditional, festive Hindu celebration.
Astrologically, the position of the planets on the day of Diwali brings luck and prosperity for every zodiac sign. The Sun and Moon, being conjunct in the sign of Libra, create a powerful dark moon effect which marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle, corresponding to new beginnings, new projects, new resolutions with the promise of successful fruition.
On Diwali, candles are lit and mantras are chanted to Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, and Lord Ganesha, widely revered as the remover of obstacles and the patron of new beginnings. The intention is to invite health, wealth and prosperity into our lives.
It is an extremely auspicious time to meditate, pray and focus on the goals you have set for yourself. The powerful synergy resulting from mantra recitation during the period of Diwali increases the beneficial effects of the mantras by tenfold.
If you cannot come to Chénéville, you can still join us in meditation from the comfort of your home. So, no matter how you celebrate Diwali this year, take a moment to light a candle and say a few sincere prayers of thanks and gratitude. In doing so you will not only bring good fortune to yourself, but you will spread the healing vibrations of love and goodwill to promote world peace and a better life for everyone.
