This Diwali, visit the nearest temple website

An interesting bit of news from CNN.com:

Thousands of Indians living abroad are logging on to religious Web sites in the run-up to the main Hindu festival of Diwali, courtesy of a stream of portals offering services like online praying and blessings.

No, it’s not just the logging on, it’s this too:

For prices ranging from $8 to $15, religious portals are offering prayer sessions for IT-savvy devotees at temples in India, sending them a DVD of the prayer and offerings like dried flowers or vermilion, blessed by the priest.

We are a religious people for sure. Read Overseas Indians turn to Web for festival prayers .
