Making Someone’s Diwali a Special Diwali

Divine Heart Society

There is a saying in Hindi:

Sukh Bat-ne se Badh-ta hai aur Dukh Batne se Ghat-ta hai

We all celebrated Diwali with our family and friends and busted crackers and enjoyed a lot but what about those who either don’t have a family or those whose family have left them…

Divine Heart Society took an initiative to make this Diwali a special one for a few of them by spending time with them and distributing among them sweets and fruits.

A few members of DHS went to Asha Dham Ashram,MullaTalai , which serves those aged and mentally unstable people who either have no one to take their care of, or are left by their children. We went there at about 3 pm on the 5th November 2010 and stayed there till about 6 pm. We distributed sweets and fruits among them and also talked to them and tried on our part to make them feel better and needed and tried to make this Diwali their Special Diwali. We at DHS had also gathered some old clothes donated to us by our DHS members, those clothes which were in good condition were also given to them.

Our DHS members who went there were Jujar Ali Bohra(President, DHS), Muslim Sabunwala(Treasury, DHS), Heena Pathik, Anant Jain, Mehul Jain, Mayank Seth, Abhishek Bansal.

We at DHS heartily thank Asha Dham Ashram for giving us a chance to perform such a noble act. We also thank the DHS members who went to Asha Dham Ashram for their timely support and cooperation and for giving their precious time even on the Festive day. We also thank all our members who supported us with their service in cash, clothes and kind.

Happy Dhanteras !!!!

Goddess Lakshmi

Dhanteras marks the first day of five-days-long Diwali Festival. Dhanteras takes place two days before Diwali. Dhanteras Festival, also known as Dhantrayodashi or Dhanwantari Triodasi, falls on the auspicious thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha in the Hindu month of Kartik (October/November). In the word Dhanteras, “Dhan” stands for wealth. On Dhanteras Goddess Laxmi is worshiped to provide prosperity and well being.

Legendary stories to explain the Origin of Dhanteras :

One Popular story, when the gods and demons churned the ocean for Amrit or nectar, Dhanavantri (the physician of the gods and an incarnation of Vishnu) emerged carrying a jar of the elixir (Amrit) on the day of Dhanteras. It was because of this reason that the Dhanteras was celebrated in his honor.

Another interesting story about this day is of the sixteen year old son of King Hima. As per his horoscope he was doomed to die by a snake-bite on the fourth day of his marriage. On that particular fourth day of his marriage his young wife did not allow him to sleep. She laid all the ornaments and lots of gold and silver coins in a big heap at the entrance of her husband’s boudoir and lighted innumerable lamps all over the place. And she went on telling stories and singing songs. When Yam, the god of death arrived there in the guise of a serpent his eyes got blinded by that dazzle of those brilliant lights and he could not enter the prince’s chamber. So he climbed on top of the heap of the ornaments and coins and sat there whole night listening to the melodious songs. In the morning he quietly went away.

Thus the young wife saved her husband from the clutches of death. Since then this day of Dhanteras came to be known as the day of “YAMADEEPDAAN” and lamps are kept burning throughout the night in reverential adoration to Yam, the god of death.

Also a girl child born on Dhanteras day is considered as the arrival of Goddess Lakshmi into the house and is considered lucky by certain communities in North India. When girls born on Dhanteras get married and leave for her husband’s home, she leaves her footprints on a plate covered with ‘kumkum’ (red powder used in Hindu puja), this is to ensure that Goddess Lakshmi does not leave the house.

Dhanteras Preparations  :

To mark the auspicious day, houses and business premises are renovated and decorated. Entrances are made colorful with lovely traditional motifs of Rangoli designs to welcome the Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity. To indicate her long-awaited arrival, small footprints are drawn with rice flour and vermilion powder all over the houses. Lamps are kept burning all through the nights.

Singnificance of the white color on Dhanteras :

If we probe into the significance of the color, white in Hindusim, the image of Goddess Saraswati strikes in our mind. She is depicted as wearing a white sari, which further signifies the enlightenment of mind. Being a benefactor of knowledge and education, her white attire encourages us to adopt the traits of cleanliness, purity and peace. On the other hand, the color of Lord Shiva’s body is also white too. Thus, the color white has prominent place in the religion of Hindus.

According to Indian Astrologers, white represents the planet Venus. It is believed that the Kundali (Horoscope), there is strong influence of this particular planet, would be favored with luck, fame, glory, love and peace. The fact to be noticed here is that all these favors are mundane. And the same is purpose of celebrations of Dhanteras. Thus buying gold, silver, platinum and even steel are considered auspicious.

Mahalakshmi Mantra (महालक्ष्मी मन्त्र) :

The seed or beej Mantra for Goddess Lakshmi is based on the word bhreem (भर्ीम).

When UdaipurBlog Helped


This incident happened about a month ago when some of my relatives met with a road accident near Neemuch. Some of our close relative had expired and to attend the funeral my aunty’s family was going there in a car when this unfortunate incident happened. The car in which they were travelling met with a dangerous accident and all the 4 persons inside the car were injured badly. The worst injury happened to my aunt, Shamim Mansuri. She was hit on the head and chest. Her lungs were damaged and due to severe head injury she was unconscious immediately. All the injured persons were taken to local hospital and the doctors suggested that the condition of my aunt is very critical and she should be taken to Udaipur immediately. The other persons escaped with minor injuries. At about 7 in the evening i was informed about the whole incident. I work in Hyderabad, miles away from Udaipur. the situation was tense and we couldnt do anything but turn towards the almighty for his mercy. The night passed and we were totally unaware of the outside world. I was feeling helpless as i was so far and feeling tense that i could not do anything.

Early morning the doctor told us to arrange blood for our aunt. the blood group was O -ve, a very rare group. Feeling helpless, i reluctantly started searching on the net if i can find some people in the Udaipur city who could come to our rescue. Accidently i hit this blog and dropped a mail to Sanjit requesting him to arrange for O -ve blood. I switched off the net and went back to my room praying to God. Surprisingly i got a call at 11 in the night. It was Lakhan. He assured me that he has got in touch with his other friends Sanjit and Neeraj. These three youngsters, Sanjit, Lakan and Neeraj, passed on our request to the entire city by their UdaipurBlog and by next morning the cell phones started ringing with all the donors. Luckily we could get the required units of blood and soon our aunt was declared out of danger. However she went into coma and she is still in it. It will take another two months for her to recover from the trauma.

O -ve group is a very rare group and whatever blood banks we could reach that day, were all out of stocks for this particular group. We are not from the city too. It was a new place for us. We wonder what would have happened if Lakhan,Neeraj and Sanjit had not helped us. Our blessings and well wishes are always with you guys. Keep up the good work!!.
