Spirituality is an indispensable part of festivals. Be it India or abroad every other festival has a spiritual story related to it that conveys a significant message. I do not know if these stories are true or not but my belief in them has a different logic. Irrespective of the religion or caste all the Gods and Goddesses desire to make this planet a peaceful place to live in where every other human being radiates the pure feelings of love and honesty. That’s why these divine stories have been scripted , may be by the Gods themselves, so that in this over-occupied era where nobody has time to meditate or even spend quality time with loved ones people at least get to do these things on special occasions. For me, these festivals are superior moments when one can share love with near and distant relatives even if it is possible only a couple of times a year. At least these festivals make us stay in touch with each other that otherwise would not have been possible as we seldom tend to take a break from our monotonous routines.
Anyways, a couple of weeks back we visited Delhi’s Iskcon temple. Honestly, my husband has been planning this festive since January but we could not manage even 2 hours for this visit. We hardly stay at a distance of 1 hour from Iskcon but rarely visit it, and this is what I was talking about earlier. Unless and until we do not have a mandate to change our steady routine we hardly disrupt it. Well, we spent a couple of hours at Iskcon attending their aarti, capturing some photographs and eating desi ghee ladoos. I must say that the way Iskcon priests do aarti is quite different. They actually connect with worshipers by making them dance on the tunes of Lord Krishna’s prayers. People form groups and un-hesitantly start dancing. It looks like a dancing scene from one of Gokul’s folktales. It’s like everybody is enjoying and praying in his/her own style. In just a while the atmosphere fills with blissful spiritual feeling where everybody in engrossed in his/her world. We go to spas to get rid of stress but in my opinion nothing can beat this de-stress therapy. Just an hour in this ambience and you will forget every tiniest worry and be taken to another world where you have nobody but ‘Happy You’.
Oops, I forgot that this is an OOTD post . To make my outfit appropriate for temple visit I wore a green colored khadi silk suit, and teamed it up with some bangles and jewelry. Being a Punjabi I like little gaudiness in my traditional attires. But if you ask my Mom and Mom-in-law they will say this is a very simple suit that can be easily worn to office. Do you agree ? 😛 Well
enjoy the photographs, and have a lovely week ahead !
