Happy Deepavali

Happy Deepavali. The following lines from the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad remind us of the true essence of Deepavali:
“Asatoma sadgamaya ; Tamasoma jyotirgamaya; Mrityorma amritam gamaya”
(From ignorance, lead me to Truth! From darkness, lead me to Light! From death, lead me to Immortality!)
 
Diwali brings us the light to deliver us from the darkness to ignorance to the brightness of true knowledge and action.
Capturing this essence of Diwali, Aarshi did away with the noisy crackers Happy diwaliIMG-20191026-WA0011IMG-20191026-WA0012(“environment-friendly measure”, she says) and is lighting up her home with hand-made diyas, offering the first one to God.
 
Happy Deepavali to you and your family. Enjoy in the true spirit !!
