Swamishri’s blessings
Swamishri said, “Our Hindu shastras consider this day to be very sacred. It is believed that God returned to earth from Patal. His darshan brought joy to devotees. That is why lamps are lighted and crackers are ignited to celebrate one’s joy.“Whatever is offered out of devotion to God pleases him and liberates one from vices and base nature.”
