Diwali in North, West and Eastern parts of India is observed on the Amavasya day. Here Diwali marks the return of Bhagvan Sri Ram to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. This in 2015 is on November 11.

Periyazhwar mentions this in the Divya Prabhandam as a favourite of lord Vishnu’s (hence the tradition of making it through this month). However, if you’re not one with culinary flair though, don’t go looking for this on a hotel menu or at your at local bhavan.

Thoughts on Bliss by Hindu Blog

Bliss is the goal of all living beings. Lucky few realize that they are bliss.
Success will always have the fear of failure; happiness will always have the fear of unhappiness but one who has achieved bliss is always in bliss.
They say you are in bliss in deep sleep – True – But Bliss while awake is also Bliss
You are not going to achieve bliss by joining a meditation course or by attending a satsang. It has to be achieved through intuition and true knowledge.
No body can sell or teach or give you bliss because you are bliss.
Bliss is not the result of external factor. It is inner joy arising from self realization.
Bliss cannot be explained in words. It can only be experienced.
