~ Diwali

The literal meaning of 'Diwali' in Sanskrit is 'a row of lamps'. The most popular tradition of Diwali is filling little clay lamps with oil and wick and lighting them in rows all over the house. Lights and diyas are lit to signifying the driving away of darkness and ignorance, as well as the awakening of the light within ourselves. This autumn festival is a five-days celebration, of which each one has its own significance. Entrances are made colorful with lovely traditional motifs of Rangoli designs to welcome Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity.

First Glimpse of Moksha

A student, age 43 with 3 children, has been meditating for about 7 months. Her meditation program is 60 minutes in length, twice a day. She has Atmavedi Meditation, the Ananda Technique, the first 12 Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and the Esoteric Mahamantra. This morning we had the following exchange:

Kundalat Devi"During meditation today the whole world collapsed! My head is in chaos! I saw my physical life as an idea in deep silence. Life all of a sudden lost its meaning, and my mind experienced total collapse!"

Visvamitra"This is an excellent experience! You experienced your life from your subtle mind. This experience can be very confusing at first. "

Kundalat Devi"I felt sadness and anger! Now it is gone, but it came to me during meditation."

Visvamitra"Yes, that was caused by leaving ego behind. It is the source of sadness and anger, and you have witnessed the ego from a higher perspective.  You must release control of the physical body and the physical mind . This is a very important step to achieve Moksha, where you realize that everything is in the mind of the Creator."
