Diwali decorations are up. Candles are lit. Lights are on. Wine is poured. Gifts given. I’m wearing new earrings and I’m about to cook one of my husband’s favorite meals.
Tonight, after the kids are asleep, I’ll make puja to Lakshmi, honoring her for the abundance and beauty in my life, and asking for her blessings upon my life, my family, and all who dwell in this house.
Pictures (and more explanation) to come tomorrow.
May we all find light in the darkness, may liberation and enlightenment dispel the darkness of ignorance, and may we be blessed with the abundance of all good things.
