    My dear vls !

    First, let me welcome you to this forum - I do not remembber to have interacted with you here? Or am I forgetful ?
    You can leave it in the Puja room & or put it off for safety reasons, if need be.
    Thanks for the F B .

    My dear Radha M !

    I am sure you will start doing it from this year. Praying for their welfare is our best gift to our family, don't you agree ?
    Thankyou for the F B .
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    You are right, Kamla !

    These are all developments in the religious field, in recent times, if I can say so. Many such customs are renewed "vigorously", seeing the faith people have in following tradition.
    You light, chant the mantra & put it off, for security reasons.
    Thankyou, you are forever with me, Kamla, I can't thank you enough.
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    love u, Seena.
    HAPPY DIWALI!

    Shahana, my dear friend !

    Let me explain the connection between Deepavali & Yaman.
    Yamuna Devi & Yaman are children of Suryan. Yamuna Devi once invited Suryan
    to visit her house. Yaman took many gifts & went to her house. She hosted him very happily. This is Yama Dvitheeya - Bhai-dhooj, in the North. This strengthens the bond between brother & sister.

    For another legend go to

    Second para.

    What picture do I send for Deepavali, Seena, tell me ?
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    My dear Chithra,

    thanks for the explanations, Chithra.
    don't you light Deepams in your home? I don't know will it do inside the house. If you do , surely would be nice to see!(that's why I asked to see the pics)
    love u,Seena.

    Hi

    Hi C maam,

    You're right this is my first time in this thread. Thanks for the info and guidance but it so sad that I'll not be able to do anything this year. My chinna mamanar passed away Wed. early morning. Anu & I were looking forward to Deepavali this year with all the bakshanams, kolams and pooja and what not. She was to sing on that day at a known person's house. They perform Lakshmi pooja every year. Now I've to think of something to keep us busy on that day. But I'll be getting yummy bakshanams from my vadhyar. He promised to send me jangiri, badhusha, karasevu, mixture, m. pak and do not know the rest. Will let you know. Think of me when you make the bakshanams and send me a telepathic msg pls.

    Take care.

    Dear Chitra,

    I too didn't know about lighting lamps and praying yama dharma raja, the night before deepavali, but now learnt it from you. surely will light lamps and chant the slokas. Thank you.

    regards,
    surya.

    vls, did you get all my telepathic messages yesterday ?

    It is sad that you cannot celebrate deepavali, the way you had planned.
    Anyway, arrival of the goodies will constitute half the deepavali & so it is not too bad at all !
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    My dear Surya !

    Now T Nadu is full of religious magazines which explain to us, so many customs which had "vanished" over the years. It is good that a
    "renaissance" is taking place !
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.
