Help poor survive the cold of winter in India

Bengal Winter

West Bengal is one of the poorest places in world with almost a third of population living below poverty line. Every year many die due to harsh winters. Basic amenities like warm water and blankets are not available for many.

We plan to distribute free blankets to needy poor and install a hot-water geyser in Kalitala – a poor village in Howrah district of West Bengal, India.

This will save thousands of valuable lives and help them survive the harshness of nature.

Just imagine what a small child or an old woman has to face in winter nights when they have hardly even full-sized thin clothings to cover their bodies in wide open. No heaters, no shelter, no sweaters, no blankets. Those who cannot face, die.

Lets prevent this loss. What we give, comes back to us. Lets help our brothers and sisters. All humans are our family members. How can we enjoy the warmth of heaters and jackets when our own family is shivering to death?

    When a friend asks you what is Diwali, please send them this. It is an all encompassing meaning.

    Spiritual significance of Diwali

    While Diwali is popularly known as the “festival of lights”, the most significant spiritual meaning behind it is “the awareness of the inner light”. Central to Hindu philosophy (primarily the Yoga, Vedanta, and Samkhya schools of Hindu philosophy) is the belief that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atman. The celebration of Diwali as the “victory of good over evil”, refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one’s true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality. With this awakening comes compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). This brings ananda (joy or peace). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light.

    While the story behind Diwali and the manner of celebration varies from region to region (festive fireworks, worship, lights, sharing of sweets), the essence is the same – to rejoice in the Inner Light (Atman) or the underlying Reality of all living things are connected to Brahman.
