Bengal, unlike most  of India,  worships the female power principle. Today, we are celebrating Kali Puja, alongside Diwali. Goddess Kali, the fierce mother and protector,  is one of the many forms of Shakti or energy, worshipped by Hindus.

HAPPY

DIWALI

Aum Asato mā sad gamaya
Tamaso mā jyotir gamaya
Mṛtyormā amṛtam gamaya
Aum śānti śānti śāntiḥ

(From ignorance, lead me to truth;
From darkness, lead me to light;
From death, lead me to immortality
Aum peace, peace, peace )
