Sunday Morning: Holi. Festival of Colors.

“If you notice the instances under which people gather in large groups, in coliseums, in stadiums – it usually has to do with contention, competition, rivalry, partisanship.  The Festival of Colors stands out from those events because there is none of that competition or rivalry or sectarianism.  People are gathered together just about celebrating our own spirituality and creator from whom we come…He’s present within his name.  Whenever you are chanting any bona fide name of God, God is dancing on the tip of your tongue.  Life becomes simple.  Life becomes streamlined and pared down – – to love of God and love of one’s fellow living beings…We’re all basically the same. There’s unity in diversity.  Underneath all that, there is a natural outpouring of love.”

    Ties in with something I’ve been thinking and I love how this visual punctuates my ramblings and articulates this SO well.

  7. Hi Dave,

    Holi is a festival that started in India and my ancestors brought it to Trinidad. As a child I had the opportunity to be a part of these celebrations. Thanks for taking me on a mental journey 🙂
