Understanding Diwali, Is It Really The Way We Celebrate It?

Diwali as we know it…..a festival of lights, crackers, sweets, celebrations and that’s it for us. As Google knows it …it’s all about offers and big discounts on various shopping websites. Oh you are doubting me, you can go and check it yourself. The moment you’ll search for Diwali, the page will load with so many offers and Diwali bumper offers. Not only this, these advertisements of sale would be on top reducing the real meaning of Diwali to mere a word. Between all this, the essence of Diwali is lost somewhere. So this Diwali, let us share those things and thoughts that can make Diwali worth it and more fruitful rather than only talking about it.

As a *Diwali Gift* we would like to share some of the *life-changing precious pearls* extracted From *Satguru Baba Hardev Singh Ji’s Discourses*

It is better to light a lamp than to curse the darkness

Presence is more important than presents

We usually give presents (gifts) on such occasions, but a devotee always feels following thoughts on God’s presence. Your presence is more important than your present.

Diwali and Dussehra

Diwali comes after Dussehra…why is it so? Because truth wins first and then celebrations follow…

Reflect the light

If you cannot become a lamp then at least become a mirror to reflect that light.

Afraid of light?

We can easily understand if a child is afraid of darkness but it is a great tragedy when a man is afraid of light.

No darkness can ever be that dark…

No darkness in the world can be that dark that a single lamp cannot eliminate.

One lit lamp

A single lamp is needed to light other lamps.

What matters is ‘light’

Gold or clay, it doesn’t matter because both of them serve the same purpose. So let’s give up the arrogance and be a lit lamp.
