Image Details:

Diwali is celebrated on the 14th of waning half of the month of Ashwin, also called Narakchaturdashi. This year it coincided with 14th day of November.

The first photo I took yesterday was the last crescent of the moon of this month. Then in the evening as the Ashram building [at Yogoda Satsanga Sakha Math ashram in Ranchi] got lighted up one by one, the whole atmosphere took on an etheric looks, as if we were in heaven. Yes, our Guruji’s Ashramas are oases of divine love, peace and joy where thirsty souls can come and drink. This year all of them missed this divine celebration by physically being here. So I share these photos to remind them of their experiences of previous visit and assure that they are equally blessed even at home as the Gurus never leave their dear devotees.
