Diwali Greetings 2015

On this Diwali - Annual Festival of Illumination & Beauty - (A New Year Celebration):
We are reminded in our Upanishads, and teachings of the Tradition:

Jyotir, Jyotir, Jyotir, (Light, Light, Light)
Idam Madu, Idam Madu, Idam Madu (This is honey, So beautiful, so sweet, so sweet, so sweet)

Also, we are reminded in a Blessing of our Beloved Swamiji:

"May you see this light and taste the sweetness of this light.
Wherever you walk, walk as a luminous being leave no darkness, reduce doubts, let-go of fears, be free."

At this time of spiritual renewal, may we collectively resolve to reflect & contemplate our personal spiritual growth. May these self-inquiries bring the fruits of clarity, forgiveness, faith, and strength, and may your meditations prosper.

Throughout this coming year, our collective and heart-felt prayer for you, that we recite each day in the ashram:

asato ma sad gamaya, (Lead me from untruth to Truth);
tamaso ma jyotir gamaya, (Lead me from darkness to Light);
mrtyor ma amrtam gamaya, (Lead me from the bondage of death & ignorance to Immortality & Freedom)."

With the Light of Guru, the remover of all obstacles,
With the Love of Guru, the source of compassion,
Blessings of the Tradition,
Swami Ritavan Bharati

Random Quotes

" The Buddhist scriptures say that if you hate others, nothing happens to the hated person, something happens to you, to your mind, to your heart. You can learn to love somebody, even one whom you hate, by understanding that he is a human being like you. Who am I to hate that person? Stop hurting and hating others, for it injures you. If you constantly injure yourself, it can lead you to an action that can never be forgiven by your own mind, by your own conscience. You are constantly killing your conscience. Stop doing that. "
