Happy Diwali

Diwali, also known as festival of lights is a 5 day celebration. It marks the arrival of God Rama (an incarnation of Vishnu) after 14 years of exile. During his exile he defeats Ravanna and signifies good winning over evil; Wisdom winning over ignorance.  In Sanskrit, Diwali also means row of lit lamps. Although the festival is marked by different celebrations based on regional and religious beliefs wishes for joy, prosperity, light, love and success are the same.

On Diwali and in the year ahead I wish you all wholesome happiness, love, compassion, hope, unshakable faith, and an inner nurturer who helps you shine in joy and spread your wisdom.

Namaste,

Shobhna

Stillness

Our annual visit to see the Trumpeter Swans happened a few weeks ago.  They are beautiful to watch and listen to.  Sitting and watching them is mesmerizing. Their soft vocalizations in the depth of quietude is like a gentle call of the soul.  There is beauty in the stillness that is unexplainable. There is joy in being witness to natures beauty.
