The Indian people celebrate the festival of the Lights, which is popular as the “Diwali”. There is a similar festival in the Israel, the Hanukkah, means the Festival of Light in the Hebrew. It has a great significance. We usually seem to doubt if the put burning candle or the lamp near the tree at night is of significance or just a superstition. The wonder it has is that these burning of the candles and the lamps with oils in it do such a marvelous work, which the solar cells do during the daytime.
There are some trees in India, around the world as well, which release the oxygen day and night. These absorb the carbon dioxide, which the burning candle or a lamp can boost. The burning needs oxygen and the trees, which release the oxygen, produce more oxygen, which is our global need. This seems worshipping the trees. However, the words for it are the Pooja (Puja), giving honor with the feelings of reverence for the trees, as we cannot live without the trees, particularly for the reason that these release the oxygen.
Before the Edison discovered the light and the bulb and the electrical connection came to our cities, villages, streets and the homes, we all were using the natural oils from the plants and the trees, not the petroleum. We can celebrate it everyday to invite the positive energy, power, waves and the vibrations. Thanks!
