Diwali Message from Swami Veda

"pradeepa-jvaalaabhir divasa-kara-neeraajana-vidhih" (1)
suvar-jyotih-sphaara-prasava-kara-samraaji puruShe
na rochetaiShaa kintv apara-puruShe'rchaa su-kalitaa
iyam svaatmany aavir vilasati mano-deepa-saraNih

 

"Offering aartee to the splendorous day-making sun with tiny deepaks" (1) ---
Is certainly not befitting towards the puruSha who is the Emperor giving birth to expansive lights of the heavens;
However, towards the lower puruSha (jiva), who frolics in our own very self, this worship offering is beautifully rendered
- this array of the deepaks of the minds.
(1) Shankaracharya in Saundarya-lahari (Wave of Beauty Hymn).
