The word “Lakshmi’ is taken from the word Laksha which means an objective or the goal in life.  Lakshya is that which we have recognised as our material destination and Lakshmi is the cosmic power, being endowed with which you get renowned. The one who is possessed by her, is blessed with divya lakshan, a divine glow. On Diwali, Mahalakshmi is worshipped along with Lord Ganesh, who symbolizes auspiciousness and wisdom. Deepavali symbolises that wisdom alone is the perennial light that can take away the darkness and gloom of your life. Knowledge of the Absolute Self is the blessing, the ultimate wealth, that can fill your life with abundance and prosperity. Confronting and demolishing the ego is the very battle that Ram fought with Ravan. Symbolising the ego, Ravan had ten heads akin to the ten senses that drive one to the material world. Only when one surrenders the ego to Ram, the Absolute Self personified, does one realise the ultimate truth. And it is only then that the homecoming of Ram to Ayodhya can be truly celebrated. Ayodhya means a-yuddha, a place devoid of conflict. The True Self is only revealed when the mind is free of conflict, in a state of equipoise.Shri.Sachin Gajbhiye, Smt.Durga Joshi, Shri. Avinash Ganar, Shri.Ganesh Iyer & Shri. Ravindra Dhande worked hard for the success of this spiritual endeavor.
