"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.
He who Himself sees all but whom no one beholds, who illumines the intellect, the sun, the moon and the stars and the whole universe but whom they cannot illumine, He indeed is Brahman, He is the inner Self. Celebrate the real Deepavali by living in Brahman, and enjoy the eternal bliss of the soul." - Swami Sivananda

We Live in a Friendly World - "We live in a friendly world in which everything that exists is eager to assist us. Everything seen, heard, touched, tasted, smelled, thought about, imagined are all eager to help in our evolution. As a matter of fact, they are not only there to help evolution, but you have been put here amidst them in order to assist and achieve your own evolution unto perfection. Everything wishes to help us; all things are part of our evolution.This is the Truth ".........
Pondering this truth, one will behold the world as God,
behold the world as angelic and not demonic. And it will arouse
in one a great joy, a great hope, a great feeling of gratitude,
a great feeling of friendliness to all life around, for all
things around, animate and inanimate. For God made them all and
put us amidst them. May this truth enlighten your onward march
towards the great Goal!" - Swami Chidananda
