Do your parents tell you to do diva or aarti daily?
Parents who are somewhat religious or spiritual will insist that you do diva or aarti once a day. In our busy life styles we don’t have time to do the whole parti but it is worth taking out 5 minutes from your schedule. I believe there are many personal reasons why we do this and the basic reasons are as follows.
1. Gratitude: this is the moment to thank the Universe/ God for all you have been given. A simple act of lighting the diva will remind you of how blessed you are.
2. Time to slow down: This simple act forces you to take a time out and breathe and know what is real.
3. Purify the energy: The incense ( agarbati ) we light tends to purify the air in your house and your surroundings.
4. Tradition: This can be an unique daily ritual for your family to preserve!
