Wondering myself why? Isn’t it Happy Diwali rather than ‘Happy and Diwali’. Tapping my heart I was confirmed that my instincts were right. I wish Happiness and Diwali for all the citizens across the globe.
While the festival symbolize the victory of good over evil and light over darkness, it is a true festival in every sense. Never I have been more happy in my life than I am now, which makes me to question myself, why? If life has any meaning other than breath, bread and body, I had the bliss of being a human being trying to make things ‘simple’. Nobles of past have shown us myriad paths to self-victory which are seldom put in action by us. Blessing everyone Happy Diwali will deny the wishes to be happy forward. My last article of Diwali reflected how I missed my homeland and its festivity, but mature since then, made me feel what true happiness really is. Without driving the darkness inside, celebration will be a myth and festivity shall only adore pale colors. Diwali is about us, it is about looking at the light and think of what greater are we than that lifeless lamp, which still shine bright to drive out darkness.
Vivekananda reiterated the fact that the source of all miseries is thinking about others. He did not mean that we be selfish. His emphasis of philosophy was to think that we are many but one and our actions often gives out its results taking the form of ‘others’. There is no greater thing that God and God is in all good things. I have been fortunate to have ‘Sat-Sang’ which forms the onus of becoming a complete human.
So I wish you once again my fellow beings that be happy and celebrate Diwali. Every light that you lit today shall only shine and every deed that you do from today shall only do good.
