"The Lamps" Within :
Deepavali or Diwali is a festival widely celebrated by Hindus all over the world. It is known as the festival of lights. For this day, the house and other places where people live and work are cleaned thoroughly and decorated by colourful lights. Many types of specialty food items are prepared and served to the family members and visiting guests.
A special pooja, (ritual practice) - traditional offering worship to the 3 God figures – Ganesh, Saraswati and Lakshmi, is performed in the evening time. Ganesh is known as the dispeller of all hindrances, Saraswati is known as the Goddess of Knowledge and Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth.
By the ritual worship of these Gods, one hopes to dispel all problems and obstacles, and invites Knowledge and Wealth into ones life. After the worship, the premises is adorned with oil lamps (deep) or lights for the entire night to invite the Gods , Angels and best wishes to the house.
It is said that on the day of Diwali , Lord Ram, a King exiled for fourteen years in the forest, returns to the kingdom of Ayodhya. In devoted reception and in joy, the whole city of Ayodhya was lit with lamps.
the real meaning of this celebration?
It is not by coincidence or for the fact that lamps are lit everywhere that Diwali is known as the festival of lights. Light symbolizes true knowledge. True knowledge arises by an inner awakening – awakening of the seven sacred knowledge centers within our head and spine region, known as chakrās. When the knowledge centers are awakened through the practice of a special technique, we attain such treasures that are invaluable and indispensable to us. These treasures are unique angelic qualities of the soul, which when awakened within us, equip us with arms of love and compassion, sacrifice and tolerance, patience and peace, deep concentration and strength that no riches can ever buy, nor any educational course can provide.
Since time immemorial, many Saints and Sages, Masters and Prophets have been known to practice and teach such a technique for humanity, that awakens the soul power within. This practice is known as Kriyayoga Meditation. By its sincere regular practice, the knowledge centers are awakened and the beauty of angelic powers blooms within. Slowly and steadily, the lamps within are lit that give us all we ever seek and need in life to overcome all obstacles on our path of work, and to attain all knowledge, power, wealth, peace, health and happiness that we can ever dream of in our lives. We succeed in making the impossible possible and fulfill all dreams and desires of life. The practice of Kriyayoga Meditation is the eternal and complete worship of Ganesh, Saraswati and Lakshmi and all creation.
Deepavali represents The Awakening of Prophet-Consciousness…
Lord Ram, a great Prophet of India, is known to have practised the technique of Kriyayoga Meditation. Lord Ram was known to be a Master of working the bow and arrow. The bow represents the head and spine, within which are found seven knowledge centers also known as chakrās. The arrow represents a straight line, which is a symbol for infinity. Prophet Ram, therefore, had realized the presence of infinite power within the chakrās situated in the head and spine.
The fourteen years of exile of Ram does not mean living in the forest. Exile is generally considered as going out of the Kingdom and living in the forest. In the spiritual text, the Kingdom means the place and existence of organs of senses and organs of actions, structure and function of blind mind and reasoning power. Going out of the Kingdom means shifting our concentration from sensory response to the spiritual center (seven chakrās) within the head and the spinal cord. The area within head and spinal cord is called forest (van). Thus, 14 yrs exile means 14 yrs of practice of concentration on head and spine to reach within spiritual magnetic aura of seven chakrās. This practice transforms all evil and devil tendencies ( rākshas) into angelic tendencies ( devtās). Thus, Ram demonstrated great science of spirituality that is nothing but Kriyayoga Meditation to all people of that time.
This same practice is referred to in The Bible as seven churches, seven candlesticks and seven stars, as described in The Revelation:
1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
The seven churches are the seven knowledge centers (chakrās) or the place of awakening where we lay our concentration. The seven candlesticks represent the awakening of the seven churches. We become more and more aware of their presence as power and knowledge awakens within. The seven stars is the awakened state of the seven churches or knowledge centers.
In Matthew 2:2, it is
