Diwali – November 2020
Celebrating the Festival of Lights
12-14 November 2020
Diwali (Deepavali) is the most auspicious day of the Vedic calendar, and in the lunar calendar it is preceded by Dhanvantari Jayanti and Hanuman Jayanti.
12 November—Dhanvantari Jayanti
Day of celebrating the emergence of AyurVeda.
Dhanvantari is the embodiment of AyurVeda, the eternal science of life. On this day of Dhanvantari, the tradition of the complete knowledge of AyurVeda is revived and enlivened in human awareness and we can take advantage of this opportunity to imbibe in our consciousness those elements of perfect balance, perfect health, and immortality to help create a disease-free society.
13 November — Hanuman Jayanti
Day of celebrating and enlivening Nature’s infinite organising power and perfect administration.
The day of Hanuman enlivens those impulses of creative intelligence that help maintain the flow of evolution in an uninterrupted way and help remove obstacles on the way to enlightenment, thereby promoting Natural Law based administration, Raam Raj, where society is free from problems and suffering.
14 November—Mahalakshmi Celebration (Deepavali)
Day of celebrating and enlivening the qualities of abundance, affluence, and fulfilment inherent in the structure of Natural Law.
The day of Mahalakshmi is one of the most important days in the Vedic calendar. The Sanskrit word ‘Mahalakshmi’ means ‘great wealth’. Mahalakshmi is that impulse of creative intelligence in Nature which is responsible for prosperity, growth, and affluence in life. On this auspicious Mahalakshmi Day, called Deepavali, the Festival of Lights, we enliven the specific values of creative intelligence in Nature that bestow wealth, eliminate poverty, and remove obstacles and weaknesses in individual and collective consciousness.
