While Diwali is popularly known as the “festival of lights”, the other most significant spiritual meaning is “the awareness of the inner light”. Many Diwali festivals have come and gone. Yet the hearts of the vast majority are as dark as the night of the new moon. We lit our house with lamps, but the heart is full of the darkness of ignorance. Remember friends, all the lights of the world cannot be compared even to a ray of the inner light of the Self. So, merge yourself in this light of lights and enjoy the supreme Diwali.
