Not being a native of India, nor raised in Hinduism, I’m certain my version of Diwali is far from typical or traditional. I have a small home altar tucked in a high corner of my bedroom. I don’t know all the puja and rituals, and have the most basic understanding of the holiday.
However, I love the celebration of our inner light and our oneness filling the world with the light of the divine. I aim for bringing that to my world as much as possible. And after the week I’ve had, I am very grateful that I was reminded by Isha that Diwali had begun.
This is my small celebration of light.
May you all have a Joyous Diwali and see the light in everyone this week. May your individual light shine bright and help bring joy to this world.
Siva Hir Su
