Diyas light up in sync

This is a special night.

It is a night when the moon hides her face, yet shines in our hearts.

This new moon is a celestial treat.

Every month we see the moon as a crescent. Tonight, the sun will be seen as a crescent as the moon will show herself in front of the sun.

This is a special night. While the celestial sync continues among earth, moon and sun, many people will see a solar eclipse. Others will be asleep, depending on where you are in the world.

This is a special day. A special night.

Millions of earth-made diyas will be set in a row. Oil will be poured into them, and a cotton wick placed. At night, they will be lit with the fire from an altar. And on this moonless night, millions of people who have sprung from India, following three major faiths as Hindu, Jain or Sikh,  will celebrate Deepavali with family and friends all over the world.

The light of this celebration is shared by people of many faiths.

There is celebration, feasting, and community. There is sync.

The celestial and the terrestrial synchronize.

Let the light of Deepavali synchronize with your inner light.

Let the light of Deepavali illumine every night.

Every day in the first half of any UTC hour, bring in light. Every day, in the second half of any UTC hour, let go of the shadows.

Share this message with all. It will illumine the world.
