"O man! wake up from the slumber of ignorance. Realise the constant and eternal light of the Soul which neither rises nor sets, through meditation and deep inquiry.
.....Celebrate the real Deepavali by living in Brahman, and enjoy the eternal bliss of the soul. The sun does not shine there, nor do the moon and the stars, nor do lightnings shine and much less fire. All the lights of the world cannot be compared even to a ray of the inner light of the Self. Merge yourself in this light of lights and enjoy the supreme Deepavali".

Sri Yantra - meaning
"Arjuna was not able to liberate himself from himself. He was caught in his own view of things, in his own sentiments, in his own emotions, in his own reactions. He was caught and he was in a pitiable condition. And it required all patience and effort on the part of Jagad-Guru Sri Krishna to free Arjuna from himself and to enable him to see himself in the right perspective and to be fully and willingly prepared to follow the lead of Sri Krishna. Then the problem gradually began to resolve itself. Arjuna found that he was able to free himself. From whom? From himself. That is the inner tattva (truth), outcome, fruit of the Gita—not I, not I, but Thou."
"But Arjuna did not yield, did not
give up his self-opinion easily. Difficult was the task. He made
Bhagavan go through sixteen chapters of teachings before he
finally saw the wisdom. He especially got this clarity after the
tenth and eleventh chapters. So, deeply one must ponder these
two chapters. For all of us have within us the situation of
Arjuna in some way or other. It is the crucial problem of the
jivatma—its unwillingness to renounce itself for a higher light,
higher wisdom." - Swami Chidananda
