Dr. Chawla’s message

Deepavali now is a festival where people from all age groups, all cultures toexpress a feel of their happiness by lighting diyas and electric lamps, cleaning and decorating the homes and offices, children burst firecrackers and invite near and dear ones to the homes for partying. 

To me, darkness represents ignorance, and light is a symbol for knowledge. Therefore, lighting a lamp symbolizes the spread of knowledge and celebrating deepavali every moment, destructingnegative forces- wickedness, violence, lust, anger, envy, greed, fear, injustice, suffering, etc. So I request every human light a lamp of love and happiness destruct the negatives.

Traditional deepawali

Deepavali, the literal meaning of which in Sanskrit is 'a row of lamps.' Filling little clay lamps with oil and wick and lighting them in rows all over the house is a tradition that is popular in most regions of the country. Seven Auspicous days of Deepawali


First day
The First day of Deepawali festiwal is Gowatasa Dwadashi/Vasu Baras. On this day cows and calf are respected and worshipped. One shall feed the cow family wheat and its products. We should also abstain from eating the milk products and milk. In Maharashtra this day is celebrated as Vasu baras. It is considered as the first day of the deepavali.This day is 7th November 2015

Second day
The Second day in the festival is Dwadashi.  Preparations and cleaning is the most priority work on this day. This day also has a pradosh vrat. This day is 8th November 2015

The Yamadeep is another strong ritual in which the lamp is lighted for Yamaraj the god of death. The lamp is lighted outside the door of the house. This ritual wards the untimely death of any family member.

The whole home has to be lighted with lamps.

In the evenings the households go to market to buy the gold and silver jewelry. Those who cannot afford to buy the jewelry can buy utensils of steel.
I suggest not lending and giving money to any body on this day.

Fourth day
The Fourth day is called Roop chaturdashi/ Narak chaturdashithis is on 10th of November 2012.
One has to wake up before the sunrise and take bath. But before bathing massage your body with sesame oil.

Poojan Method

In Deepawali pujan predominantly Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi are worshipped.
Lord Ganesha is always worshipped at the beginning of every auspicious act as Vighnaharta; Goddess Lakshmi - is worshipped in her three forms - Mahalakshmi (the goddess of wealth and money), Mahasaraswati (the goddess of books and learning), and Mahakali.
 Kuber (the treasurer of the gods) is also worshipped.
On a raised platform the worshiper has to spread a new cloth.
Place a handful of grains in the centre and, on this, place a kalash,(pitcher). Fill three-fourth of the kalash with water and place a betel nut, a flower, a coin, and some rice grains in it. 
Arrange five kinds of leaves or mango leaves in the kalash .
Place a small dish on the kalash and fill it with rice grains. 
Draw a lotus with turmeric powder ( haldi ) over the rice grains and place the idol of goddess Lakshmi over it
In front of the kalash , on the right (South-West direction), place the idol of Ganesha. Also place ink and books related to your business or occupation on the platform.
Light a deepak and the incense sticks and we have to start the puja by offering haldi, kumkum , and flowers to the platform on which the kalash is placed.
Sprinkle the sacred water on all puja utensils to purify them.
Make  a Panchamitra   with five ingredients of milk, curd, ghee(clarified butter), sugar & Honey.
Now we have to start with Ganesh Pujan by reciting om Gan ganpaty namah:
Offer a garland to the god. Offer flowers and make an offering of sweets, coconut and fruits
Now we have to invite maa the goddess Lakshmi by reciting the “Om Shreem hreem shreem Om maha lakshmiya namha”Then offer the flowers to the idol.
Place the idol of Maa Lakshmi in a plate and bathe it with scared water, panchamrit and then with water containing some gold ornament or a pearl. Wipe the idol clean and place it back on the kalash . 
Offer sandal paste, haldi, kumkum, to the goddess. Offer a garland  to the goddess. Offer flowers and make an offering of sweets, coconut and fruits.
Then worship the ink and business books. Open the first page of each book and write '' Shubha Labh '' on it and draw a Swastika in the clockwise direction.
