Why Do We Draw Kolam? – The Story in Hindu Puranas

The story which explains why do we draw kolam is found in the Hindu Puranas. The story is associated with the churning of the ocean by Devas and Asuras. Numerous items appeared during the churning of the ocean. When Goddess Lakshmi appeared from the churning, she requested Bhagvan Vishnu for a house to reside.
Vishnu suggested her to reside in a house in which the entrance is sprinkled with cow dung (entrance is pasted with cow dung) and decorated with kolams.
From that day onwards people began to draw kolams to invite Goddess Lakshmi into their homes.
Some Puranas also state that Moodevi or goddess of misfortune appeared during the churning of ocean and she also demanded a house. Bhagvan Vishnu asked her to reside in those houses that are dirty and where they do not draw kolam in front of the entrances.

Children need your presence, not your presents – Swami Tejomayananda

Children need your presence, not your presents.
Some people will applaud and some will criticize. Cheers and jeers will always be there. If there are opponents, there will be many supporters also. You be determined and convinced. You march toward your goal. 
Life is how you look at it and how you label it. If life is viewed as a problem, you have to keep solving it. If life is taken as a challenge, then meet it. If you see life as a dream, then realize it. If you take life as a sport, then play it. If you see life as a joy, then enjoy it. And If you think life is a test, then prepare yourself and pass the test. It is all in your hands. Whichever way you look at life, you will have to face it accordingly. 

Happiness in a household is possible only if the members have a common vision. If the family members have conflicting views, how can we have happiness and peace at home?  Swami Tejomayananda - Chinmaya Mission
