Varamahalakshmi Puja celebrations

Wishing all my friends a very Happy Varamahalakshmi (Goddess of auspiciousness/wealth) :)

Festivals and rituals, the Hindu way have their own significance in one's spiritual evolution. I am so excited about today’s festival coz this is one main festival for all married Women’s, specially celebrated in south India :) Here I would like to tell the significance of this festival as well as to tell/share few pics as to how I celebrated this festival today with my relatives and show you guys how nicely each and everyone decorate Lord lakshmi.

Lord Lakshmi - In my home

Varamahalakshmi, The term Vara means “Blessing” Hence this day is to be believed that Lord lakshmi grants her blessing to the worshippers. This festival falls on Friday in the month of Ashada , also called as Adi, which corresponds to the English months of July-August. This festival is performed by married women before the full moon day. We pray for the eight forces/energies which are recognized as Sri(Wealth), Bhu(Earth), Sarasvathi(learning), Preethi(love), Kirti(Fame), Santi (Peace), Tushti (Pleasure) and Pushti(Strength). Each one of these forces is called a lakshmi and all the eight forces are called as Ashta lakshmi and there are more to know about lord lakshmi but whats important is i wait for this festival to go visit everyone's house to see the god :)

We woke up in the wee hours and started putting rangoli in front of the house, tied saree to the god, decorated with flowers, fruits, sweet and did puja :) After the puja I visited all aunts house took the pics in everybody’s house to show you guys how we south Indians celebrate one of the important as well as my favorite festival.
Here are few pics:

Hope you Njoyed and once again wishing everyone happy varamahalakshmi :)

Tomorrow will be better than today.....

Life is the sum of experiences that we encounter as we go through it. Day to day struggles and triumphs are experienced by all of the world's creatures. In this post i would like to tell/write about life, Our LIFE... Just by telling that incase we had a bad day today which didn't go through our expectations,, Tomorrow will be better than today :)

A life lived in love will never be dull :)

As human beings, when we encounter a challenge, we have freedom to choose how to react. Every decision that we make leads us down another road. We will never come to exactly the same crossroads. Every decision that we make has significance. Patience is all one needs,with patience intact things take shape at its own pace.

Recently when i visited one of my cousin's house, in his room he a had posted a nice inspiring/true quote on the wall which goes like this "Life is so confusing- What we want we don't get, what we get we are not satisfied,what we expect never happens and what we hate generally repeats" I really appreciated him after reading this and i was thinking such small boy though he is in 9th standard has given a very good thought.

At times i feel that we learn lot from our younger ones... All i wanted to say is We have one life,let us enjoy it to the max... Sometimes we struggle with a tasteless coffee till the last sip and we find sugar lying at the bottom... THATS LIFE...!! Enough sweetened but not stirred well...


i wish i could end all the battles being fought inside,
i wish i do not have to wait for long
i wish, i hope and i believe
(maybe) tomorrow will be better than today...

Njoy :)
