Ashram wishes you and your loved ones a very Happy Diwali

The following two verses explain the significance of Dipavali (the festival of lights):
The demon Naraka (ego) who rules hell, (has)
The notion ‘I am this body’,
‘Where is this demon?’ enquiring thus
With the discus of jnana, Narayana
Destroys the demon. And this day
Is Naraka-Chaturdasi.
Shining as the Self in glory
After slaying Naraka,
The sinner vile who suffered much
Because he deemed as “I” the wretched
Home of pains, the body of flesh —
this is the festival of light,
Dipavali.
(Translated by Prof. K. Swaminathan)
