Ravan dahan through Shakti
The nine-day festival of “Navratri” encourages us to embrace purity, divinity, and inner strength as a way of life. This Festival serves as wake-up calls in our lives, followed by the Dussehra festival, signifying the eradication of ten vices representing Ravan within us.
Dussehra’s lesson is that, like Lord Ram facing the never-ending emergence of new heads when he struck one down, we must focus on eradicating the root of all our vices i.e. Body consciousness by practising Meditation and Spiritual Knowledge
Essence from the Video
- This festival conveys a profound message: the imperative to conquer our inner weaknesses. Sitas, symbolising souls, often become entangled in the web of vices, straying from their true path and boundaries, mirroring Sita’s crossing of the Lakshman Rekha within a gilded illusion
- Over time, these Sitas’ yearn for divine guidance, and amidst the darkness of Kaliyug, God Rama (almighty authority) imparts knowledge, love, and the strength needed to emancipate souls from the clutches of Ravan
- This highlights how these beautiful festivals serve as an inspiration for us to live a life characterised by purity, virtue, divinity, and inner strength. As we conquer our inner demons, we celebrate the “Diwali of divinity”, anticipating the arrival of the Golden Age when the world is filled with light and righteousness
Inspirations for a Fulfilled Living
- Let’s invoke these powers within daily, through spiritual studies and meditation, to gain complete and permanent victory over Ravan, i.e. 10 vices within us
Wishing you all a very Happy Dussehra. In the days to come, let’s continue to enhance our way of living through these beautiful celebrations.
