Diwali 2020 is not going to be the same like before. Covid-19 has dented economies across the globe. Literally speaking, people’s wallets are lighter than ever before and Lakshmi, who is worshipped on this day by millions and millions of people across India seeking wealth, happiness and prosperity has assumed a new meaning altogether.
It is here that the Founder of AIM for Seva, Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati steps in and explains to us the true meaning of Lakshmi.
Please understand Lakshmi is not just money. You will lose your domestic happiness, Grihalakshmi, because you think Lakshmi is only money, Dhanalakshmi.
A good home gives you domestic happiness. To make a home you need to be available at home. You have to be a welcome person at home. The members of your family should never get prepared with fastened seat belts for your arrival! You should not be looked upon as a source of terror. Let them welcome you with eagerness. For that you have to spend with you children because there is Santanalakshmi, wealth of children.
Make the spouse happy because she is Varalakshmi, wealth of marital happiness. Trust in the goodness of people, in the laws that govern, in their legitimacy, in their correctness, and so on and it will give you Dhairiyalakshmi, wealth of courage.
It is not at all possible to fulfil all your desires. But if you can manage your desires, then there is also Jayalakshmi in your life, wealth of the capacity to manage. Now, your life is free from stress because you have taken care of everything to avoid stress. All forms of Lakshmi being there, life is filled with meaning and doing.
