Sadly we hardly see the moon recently, but it does not deter from the wonder of the something that has existed since man became aware. Lovely Blog.

When I go outside at night, I am impressed by the moon this time of the year. There is nothing like an October moon. Now it looks like I have something different to look at tonight with regard to the moon.

Re: Re: Aba bro

It (Laxmi Puja) was yesterday night. We have a string of festivals lined up. First, Dussehra the day when goddess Durga slays the unassailable Asura, Mahishasura, signifying the victory of good over evil, then Laxmi Puja, and then Diwali, when Rama came home after fourteen years of exile in the jungles of Srilanka after killing Ravana. 

Incidentally Diwali, the Festival of Lights is celebrated 21 days after Durga Puja. I looked up in the Google as to how many days it takes by the shortest route to come back to Ayoghya, Rama's kingdom. I was amazed it says 21 days by foot. The Ramayana was written almost 1.3 million years ago. How can things be so deadly accurate, I only wonder?

Re: Aba bro

May the blessings of this day surround you and your family all year long. Wouldn't be bad around here either! The Vedic seers were amazing. The song's original version seemed so slow, and later they up'd the tempo and it became a standard in this country. I'm fascinated by the change in the months named in the lyrics. Thank you, l'il bro, and enjoy this day! Or was it yesterday?

Dear sister

I find the lyrics so beautiful, decorated as it is, with poetical outpourings of the heart. Interestingly, this particular dark moony night of the decade was chosen by the Vedic seers as the Day of Laxmi Pooja, the day when the Hindus pray for all opulence to step into their homes and enrich them.

Re: Naut

It was magnificent here also, and I shot a few pix but got out there too late to do it justice! Gotta love that song! I think it's partly the rhythm of it that makes it so appealing. It's one I remember from when i was very small.

I've always loved that song! And I was just out there, taking Bennie around the block; and the Moon is magnificent in a cloudless sky on a mild late-summer night...
