Thanks Kat for the letter!

Have a Happy Divali!!

That was a great story as well... I recently came across OM 
Valley and hope to read it! 

In our area we had at one time a fairly good representation on 
theosophists and I recall several volumns in our public library 
with the archetect drawings of Point Loma... very advanced for 
their time... 

I attended some TS meetings as a teenager with my friends... I 
also took a correspondence course on one of the tomes of 
Perucher. They do a good job I think.

Tonight I'm visited a local Hindu temple for Divali as some 
Hindus in my Yoga class invited me....

The priest there taught me Sanscrit for a year or so.... but I was 
so old and slow at it I think it was pouring water over a stone! 
But I do read the Devanagri still and can read a dictionary 
Sanscrit-English so all was not for naught...

Divali sound a little lto me like La Pasada in Mexico... Peopel go 
from house to house with candles asking for room for the Christ 
child... only in India it's Lakshmi and an Owl and candles... a 
victory over a deamon Rakshasa,or such (maybe someone will 
explain this...)then there's the Mahasamadhi of Lord Mahavira 
observed by Jains on the same holiday.
