Do not light fire-crackers they attract negative energy for you.
Diwali is associated with lights, sweets, and liveliness; especially lights. As, it is celebrated on the new-moon (Amavasya) night, lights and fireworks have a significant role to play in this festival. This is why, when we hear the name Diwali, a picture of multicolored and impressive fireworks, sprinkling various sorts of bright colored lights in the night sky flashes past the mind.
We all have heard about the ill effects of fire crackers like pollution and accidents .Burning or lighting the fire crackers seems to be a brave thing . Oh I can do it. But astrological and spiritual effects of fire crackers is bad and in fact we are inviting a host of evils when we are lighting the fire crackers. The tradition of fireworks on Diwali is not very old and the burning of fire crackers are not a part of the original Diwali celebrations, which marked the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya .Lighting of fire crackers is something started in the late eighteenth century .
No body seems to under stand the effects of the fire crackers and no body knows why fire crackers are lighted. Burning of Fire crackers is not a mark of auspicious ritual either. It is quite well known that dogs and cats all hide during Diwali because of the crackers. Even the person lightening the cracker runs for his safety after lightening the cracker. It is common knowledge that it is the animals like dogs and cats who go into hiding before the natural calamities because of the danger they sense and they do the sme on Diwali night
The animals are also known to feel the presence of evil much before us humans. Actually it is the evil effects of the fire crackers which effects the animals. The fire crackers are tamasik. Tamas is a force which promotes darkness, dissolution , death, destruction and ignorance. Tamas is where the demons and asuras dwell. The tama component attracts demoniacal energies. These demoniacal energies affects all life including human beings and they also become tama predominant. Thus the sanctity of a happy and auspicious festival like Diwali is lost.
For our own good let us say No to Fire Crackers and have an auspicious Diwali.
