Love for Tea wishes everyone a very Happy Diwali. We believe Diwali is a celebration of inner light and on this auspicious day we wish everyone around the world immense health, love, happiness and success for the year to come.
Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word Deepavali which literally means “a row of lights”. Diwali is celebrated by hindus around the world and marks the beginning of the New Year. It historically symbolises the victory of good over evil and celebrates the inner light on both community and personal level. This festival is time to rejoice with family and friends. Homes are cleaned and decorated with bright earthen lamps and delicious meals are prepared and shared with everyone. Family gatherings, glittering clay lamps, festive fireworks, strings of electric lights, bonfires, flowers, sharing of sweets and gifts and worship of goddess Lakshmi form the essence of Diwali.
We believe Diwali is a perfect time to turn inwards and light the lamps of knowledge and truth in our hearts and minds. It’s time to dispel the forces of darkness and ignorance within us. It’s time to rise up and ignite the inner goodness. The world is at war. People are at war. It’s time to see beyond borders, better understand our prejudices and ignite compassion in our hearts.
Just as the flame points upwards, Diwali is most importantly a time to celebrate and appreciate life and look forward to the coming year with a renewed sense of purpose and passion. Here’s wishing everyone a very happy Diwali again from the entire team of ‘Love for Tea’. May the force be with you. Shine on!
