    My dearest Sudha !

    Your F b is very sweet !
    It is to "tie down" god to our house, that we put kolam, light the lamp etc, Sudha ! He loves this in every house ( be it in Chennai or Germany !).
    That is how the house becomes " Home Sweet Divine Home" !
    Happy karthika !
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    beautiful

    Eradicate the three impurities, namely, egoism, selfishness and delusion. Burn the mind, senses and desires in the fire of knowledge of the knowledge of Shiva. Attain full illumination and behold the light of lights, which illumines the mind and the intellect.
    This is real Karthikai Deepam.


    Hi Chitra mami,
    I love the above lines...beautiful meaning behind the Karthikai deepam. u are the best always.....

    My dear Kalpana !

    You have struck the right chord for Karthikai deepam !
    Thankyou very much for the F B.
    I am sure there are many more knowledgeable ladies in our site, so please do not think I am the best. I write here, whereas they are like kudathilirukkum kuthuvilakku !
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Hello Radha V!

    Pancha deepam oil is a mixture of gingelly oil, coconut oil, castor oil, ghee & iluppennai. Now this concept is becoming popular & sealed bottles of the same are available for lighting the lamp.
    To mainly gingelly oil, you can add one drop of others for shastram & make your own mixture. This is one's preference.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    dear all my fiends.
    I would like to add that during the month of karthikai it is customary to give til oil for lighting lamps to siva temple which i heard is because it is for the welfare of the family that we light as many lamps as possible during this month and also to give gifts by the brothers to sisters for karthikai festival. Hence through this forum i take the opportunity to wish all my sisters happy karthikai
    Thanks

    Dear Mrs Chitvish,
    As usual, what a nice and appropriate write up and kolam for karthigai. I'm feeling the festival has arrived already. Wish you a very happy Karthigai.
