Many Deepavali festivals have come and gone. Yet the hearts of the vast majority are as dark as the night of the new moon. The house is lit with lamps, but the heart is full of the darkness of ignorance. O man! wake up from the slumber of ignorance. Realize the constant and eternal light of the Soul which neither rises nor sets, through meditation and deep enquiry.
O Ram! The light of lights, the self-luminous inner light of the Self is ever shining steadily in the chamber of your heart. Sit quietly. Close your eyes. Withdraw the senses. Fix the mind on this supreme light and enjoy the real Deepavali, by attaining illumination of the soul.
Laxmi aayegi itni ki sab jagah Naam hoga, Laxmi aayegi itni ki sab jagah Naam hoga, Din raat vyapar bade itna adhik kaam hoga, Ghar Pariwar samaj me banoge Sartaj, Yehi Kamna hai hamari aap ke liye Diwali ki Dhero Shubh Kamanaye….
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.
The sun does not shine there, nor do the moon and the stars, nor do lightning shine? 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.
Memories of moments celebrated together……. Moments that have been attached in my heart, forever……. Make me Miss You even more this Diwali. Hope this Diwali brings in Good Fortune & Abounding Happiness for you!
