Diwali ki Shubhkamnayein (दिवाली की शुभकामनाएं)
Blessings to you all on this festival of light, when 2.4 billion Hindus celebrate their festival of lights in remembrance of “the awareness of the inner light”.
The celebration of Diwali as the “victory of good over evil”, refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one’s true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendentreality. With this awakening comes compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). This brings ananda (joy or peace). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light.
