Diwali began as an important harvest festival, a celebration of the hard work of farmers eagerly awaiting the fruit of struggle. Your life may seem like a pile of burden, but don’t moan, for your pain too shall pass for there is always light beyond darkness.
Some legends also point to the marriage of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi(goddess of wealth and prosperity) as the origin of Diwali, where Laxmi chooses the man possessing all transcendental qualities, approaching Godliness. Let Diwali remind you to go beyond your inhibitions to seek the greater purpose and aspire for Godliness not God.
The return of Lord Rama and Sita with brother Laxman after a 14 year exile and defeating the demon king Ravana also plays an important role in this festival. It demonstrates a journey of love and obedience transcending all worldly struggles. Ignite the power of Love within you and watch the marvels unravel before your eyes.
No matter what legend or story you believe, whether you are a Hindu or a Muslim or a Christian or even an Atheist — let Diwali be your victory over your inner demons. Let it empower you to be the best version of yourself, to commit to rise & unite towards a greater cause :
