If there is something which makes my mom happy for sure is my twice a week trip to the temple. Of this the one made on the weekend involves a little wait thanks to the queue at times. While standing there itâ€™s rather interesting to see the impatience people experience and at times even express so strongly.
One one such relaxed evening I was at complete ease in the temple. I watched as devotees walked in – some joined the queue and the impatient ones did their â€œdistant darshanâ€ and went away. And then there were the smart-ass types who thought they could did a little chiggy-wiggy to skip the line and reach the lord first. Why? I asked myself.
Humans. We donâ€™t wait our turn to meet lord in the most honest way â€“ so how are we expected to be honest and wait for our turns to get lordâ€™s gift. Letâ€™s be fair to him â€“ letâ€™s give him the time to thank him for what he gives us today and what he plans for our future. Letâ€™s try and be with him when we pray rather than worry if the car is going to be towed away or am I going to miss that call while I am in the temple.
Wishing you all a very happy diwali â€“ one which can get you closer to the lord. Cheers!
