Happy Diwali 2021
We wish you all a prosperous and safe diwali. May Lord Damodar light our heart with pure unalloyed devotional love of godhead.
On this day the residents of Ayodhya welcomed Lord Rama back and we want to welcome Lord Rama into our hearts.
Just as we clean the temple before we install the Deity so that the temple is a fit place for the Lord to reside, similarly we each want to welcome Lord Ramacandra into our heart, to install Him on the throne in our heart. But to make our heart a proper place, a fit place, for Him, we have to cleanse it.
Therefore, on the auspicious occasion of Diwali, we chant the holy names of Rama and Krsna–Hare Krsna, Hare Rama–so ceto-darpana-marjanam: the heart is cleansed.
Then we can welcome Lord Rama into our hearts and install Him on the throne of our hearts and celebrate His presence.
