HINDU FASTS & FESTIVALS : 2-5.




2. Deepavali : 5.



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.

Realise the constant and eternal light of the Soul which neither rises nor sets, through meditation and deep enquiry.



May you all attain full inner illumination! May the supreme light of lights enlighten your understanding!

May you all attain the inexhaustible spiritual wealth of the Self!

May you all prosper gloriously on the material as well as spiritual planes!

Next : Durga Puja or Navaratri
