Kali Puja 2007

Kali Puja – dedicated to Shakti – is observed mainly in Bengal and in eastern part of India. The festival coincides with Diwali celebrations and is observed on the new moon day (Maha Amavasya Tithi) in the month of Kartik (October – November). In 2007, Kali Puja is on November 9. Kali symbolically destroys ignorance and ego and clears the path to realizing ‘Brahman.’ It is believed that Kali puja removes all the distress and ushers in joy and success. In many areas, Kali puja is a community festival and huge idols of Goddess Kali is worshipped. The main rituals begin at midnight. Special aratis and pujas are conducted on the day. Another tradition is the bursting of the crackers. The day is also highly auspicious for tantrics and black magicians.

HWL Poonja Quotes

If someone tells you something, don't accept it because no teaching has so far touched the Truth. This much I will tell you. No one ever spoke the Truth. No word has ever been coined to present it.

You have to wake up Yourself; you have to see for Yourself. The senses are not needed, nor are the eyes. The eyes cannot see it; the mind cannot understand it; the intellect cannot grasp it. None of these will accompany you. You have to be alone without these things. You have to proceed alone. None of the five elements will accompany you. You will go alone to meet this situation, but what it is, no one knows. Look within, there is no difference between yourself, Self and Guru. You are always Free. There is no teacher, there is no student, there is no teaching. What Poonjaji means is that Truth has to be experienced and not taught. H.W.L. Poonja Poonjaji is affectionately referred as ‘papaji’ and was a disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi
