Deepavali is a festival of light, Joy & Illumination. To
be free from darkness and enter into the Self-luminous light of the SELF
is Deepavali. Darkness is ignorance, light is knowledge. To seek wisdom,
to establish in the inner peace, supreme light of the SELF, and to rest
in the supreme blessedness is the festival of Deepavali. Our real nature
is peace. “Shantoyam Atma”, “Anandoyam Atma”. Seek that,
find that, and establish in that only, that is the festival of light, in
a true sense.
The knowledge is to abide in the peace within and to
experience the Bliss at all times and in all conditions. In the word of
Sri Gurudev, “In all conditions, I am Bliss, Bliss, and Bliss Absolute”.
what is being needed, is awareness, "Awareness of Awareness."
The present-day world is anxiety-ridden and tension torn
from Covid -19 Pandemic. Fear not, stay positive, the vaccine is on the
way, it is a hope for all. In the meantime, we all have to exercise
discipline in terms of wearing masks, social distancing, and do our part
in the whole. Be Safe & Stay Healthy. Enhance and build a strong immune
system. Practice Yoga and Pranayama regularly. Find time to do simple
Pranayama namely Anuloma Viloma or Sukh-Puravak Pranayama. Do a few
rounds of Kapalbhati and Bhastrika Pranayama (if you don't have an
underlying medical condition like high blood pressure or heart disease),
which will boost up your energy level and enhance lung capacity "And
remember this will pass too." We have won over deadly diseases like
Smallpox, Plague, Spanish Flu, etc.
During Diwali don't waste money on firecrackers and like. Conserve the
resources. Protect the environment and ecology. May Diwali brings the
awareness of harmonious coexistence with nature, plants. animals &
birds. Worship of the cow is a tradition of ancient India from Lord
Krishna's time. Honor all life equally. The Life Principle (Chaitanya)
is the same in All.
"God pervades the entire universe. The Lord is within you and all around
you. Open your eyes and behold HIM everywhere. Behold the Lord in all
beings, all objects, plants, animals, actions, feelings & thoughts. Lead
the Divine Life. "Be good Do Good" "Serve, Love, Give, Purify, Meditate
& Realize", says Sri Swami Sivananda.
May the supreme light of lights enlighten your inner
being! May you all rejoice in the Lord, sing His Divine Name and
abide in Him! May you all attain Spiritual illumination in this
With Ocean deep regards,
Profound love and prayers for the peace and harmony in the world.
Thy Own Self,
Wishing you Peaceful, Blissful &
Joyful Diwali &
Happy NewYear !
