The festival of Diwali is one of the most beautiful times of the year.
Diwali literally means a row of light.
Diwali is heralded as the triumph of good over evil of righteousness over treachery, of truth over falsehood, and of light over darkness.
However, Diwali is not a festival of lights in order that we may burn candles, fireworks and sparklers. Sure, these are wonderful ways of expressing our gaiety. But, it is not the only or true meaning of ‘light’. Diwali is a festival of the light which dispels the darkness of our ignorance; it is a festival of the light which shows us the way on our journey through life.
The purpose is not to glorify the light of the candle or the firecracker. The purpose is to glorify the light of God. It is He who bestows the real light, the everlasting light upon the darkness of this mundane world. A candle burns out. A firework is a momentary visual experience. But, the candle of a still mind and the fireworks of a heart filled with bhakti are divine and eternal; these are what we should be celebrating.
The light of Diwali should be within us. It should symbolise the personal relationship between God and our families.
Let the light penetrate inward, for only there will it have lasting benefit.
Wishing you all peace, happiness, contentment, joy and love.
Anand and Neelu. ❤️🎉🙏 #festivalgreetings #Diwali #instagram #artistoninstagram
