Celebrate your Inner Light on Diwali

Diwali or Deepavali, popularly known as the “festival of lights,” is a five day festival which starts on dhanteras, celebrated on thirteenth lunar day of Krishna paksha (dark fortnight) of the Hindu calendar month ashwin and ends on bhai beej, celebrated on second lunar day of Shukla paksha (bright fortnight) of the Hindu calendar month kartik.

What is the reason for playing with fireworks on Diwali??

Whatever negativity – anger, jealousy or fear – has accumulated in your mind in the last one year should get dissolved in the form of all the crackers. With each cracker, burst any negativity you may have for any person, or at the most write the name of that person on the cracker and burst it, and just know that all ill feelings, jealousy etc, has got burnt. But what do we do? Instead of finishing the negativity, either we wish that person to get finished or burn ourselves in that fire of negativity. It should be the other way around. Thinking all the negativity or ill feelings have gone out with those crackers, become friendly with that person again. There is a feeling of lightness, love, peace and happiness, and then go and have sweets with that person and celebrate Diwali. This is only true Diwali, by bursting crackers burn the bad qualities of that person, not the person.

What is importance of Diya (Lamps) ?

The lights and diyas of Diwali relate to-
“तमसो मा  ज्योतिर्गमय II ”  (take me from darkness to light).


Just like light is misunderstood as lighting lamps and not internal gyan, Diwali is misunderstood for ‘getting wealth and more wealth’ rather than ‘get wealth and detach me from it as it is physical and so temporary.’

With Diwali round the corner, you can already feel festivities in the air. Families are upbeat about the ‘National Festival’ and are busy in cleaning and decorating their houses for the big day. But, let us all, for a moment, reflect on something very important. Do we really know what Diwali means?

The Significance of Diwali According to Hindu mythology, Diwali marks the return of Lord Rama to his kingdom of Ayodhya after defeating Ravana, the ruler of Lanka, in the epic Ramayana. In essence, the festival signifies the victory of good over evil.

However, in Hindu philosophy, Diwali signifies “the awareness of the inner light”. It is the assertion that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atma or Jiva (soul). Diwali is an occasion to realise and know this inner light, which outshines all darkness, removes all obstacles, and dispels all ignorance.

The realization of Atma gives us Life, Light and Love (JivaJyotiPrem). And, when we learn to love and serve our loved ones unconditionally, without expecting anything in return, we bring ananda (joy) in our lives.

Remember that what happens inside a being is what is reality; external manifestations are only its reflection. Don’t attempt to change the reflection but try to change the real thing. May you all realise the full potential of the Supreme energy on this beautiful festival of lights, Diwali.

What does Ayurveda say? 

The core philosophy of Ayurveda is to clean the body, mind and senses and realise that ‘I am soul’. All ancient Ayurvedic texts ultimately aim at cleansing not only the physical, but also the subtle, that is, the sub-conscious mind (chitta). In this festive season, we urge you to utilize the knowledge engrained in ancient Ayurvedic texts and purify yourself at all levels.

In our fast paced lives, we often forget to clean our body and senses. Our minds too are perpetually over-stimulated with stress, worries and negative thoughts. With the body, mind and senses unclean, it is impossible to realize the soul. That’s why, even though many of us are trying to find peace by meditating or chanting mantras, we still do not feel that joy in our lives.

This Diwali, let’s not only clean, decorate and light our houses, but learn this simple method of cleansing and realizing our inner light. Let’s take the pledge to make Ayurveda a part of our lives… forever….This Diwali let us pray and feel grateful – let there be prosperity in every corner of the world – let all people experience love, joy and abundance in their lives.
I wish you all a very healthy, happy, peaceful and enlightening Diwali.

Dangers of Suppressing Natural Urges

Ayurveda is the holistic ancient wisdom which focuses largely on what is and what is not beneficial for us both in terms of preventive as well as curative therapy.

Quite unknowingly, or sometimes simply for the sake of public mannerism, the body urges are withheld. Yet, this practice does more harm than good.

Seemingly harmless practices of holding onto natural urges—such as the urge for urination or the urge for sleeping—is believed to be rather hazardous for our health because these habits interfere with the balanced state of vatta dosha, or the air body humor.

The best way is not to suppress or artificially initiate any natural body process.

Our body takes in food, water and air, which are all divided into two forms – Prasad or nutritional part that is good to the body and Mala or excretory part that is harmful when kept inside the body. Excretion – urination, sweating etc, is a way of expelling malas or impurities from the body. Man can suppress the urge to urinate, also can force the body to urinate – both are dangerous.

-: Natural Body Urges & Dangers of Suppressing :-

Ayurvedacharya Charak mentioned i his sanhita-

न वेगान धारयेत धिमाञ्जतान मुत्रपुरिषयो : I  न रेतसो न वातस्य न छर्द्य: क्षवथोर्न च  II 

न उद्गारस्य न जःरुम्भय न वेगान क्षुत् पिपासयो : I  न बाष्पस्य न निद्राया नि:श्वासस्य श्रमेन च II

Listed here are 13 natural urges and the consequent implications on your health that may arise from suppressing them time and again:

  • Urge to urinate: This is one of the most commonly withheld urges, especially with women and children. It needs to be kept in mind that when you repeatedly hold on to this body’s urgency, you might initially be simply a receptor of occasional malaise and discomfort. But be cautious, because you are unknowingly nearing more threatening afflictions such as: recurrent urinary infections, pain in the lower abdomen and genitals, and stones of the urinary system. 
  • Urge to defecate: In case you off-and-on-again ignore the call of the nature, then be ready to face the aftermath. Ailments like cramps in the calf muscles, chronic headaches, chronic colds, excessive wind formation, pain in abdomen, and even the emergency condition of heart block may crop up.
  • Urge to expel wind: This is another common self-restraint that has its own tale of health adversities. Some routine discomforts are: easy fatigue, urinary retention, pain in the abdomen, improper evacuation of body wastes, and chronic indigestion. Once you make it a habit, don’t be shocked if you face an abdominal tumor, vision defect, or even heart disease.
  • Urge to sneeze: A simple sneeze once in a while won’t affect your personality. On the contrary, hold on the same and be accessible for maladies like: occasional headaches, stiffness of the neck, vertigo, and blurred vision. This small ignorance may in the long run rob you of the perfect sense of harmony or, more dangerously, it may one day take shape of disease like facial paralysis.
  • Urge to belch: Ever gave a thought to controlling your burps so often? Better do it now. Let me caution you that in the long run, this seemingly harmless practice might be reason enough for tremors, gripping pain in the chest, anorexia, and excessive production of flatus.
  • Urge to drink water: Control your thirst often and be ready to face dilemmas like: vertigo, fainting, deafness, and heart disease. Besides, suppressing thirst causes increased dryness in your system and fatigue sets in.
  • Urge to eat: I have repeatedly recommended the merits of fasting. Yet at the same time, it is always wise to be able to differentiate between false and true hunger pangs. Never try to starve your body by ignoring its demand for food. Controlling and suppressing natural hunger is believed to be harmful for health and fitness. This may cause maladies like: anorexia, emaciation, vertigo, giddiness, body aches, depression, and decline in the brainpower.
  • Urge to sleep: Do you occasionally deprive yourself of a good night sleep? Yes, this is part of our lifestyle today. Blame it on overwork or nightlife. But let me tell you this is again one of the most deleterious practices that you are unknowingly inuring yourself with. Problems like: general malaise, lethargy, indecisiveness, heaviness and pain in the eyes and head, lack of enthusiasm, habitual insomnia, and digestive maladies might be just round the corner.
  • Urge to cough: Holding on to a bout of cough may lead to further aggravation of the same. This is not all—make it a habit and be a ready host to many more respiratory afflictions like: asthma, tuberculosis, hiccups, loss of appetite, and even heart disease.
  • Urge to yawn: Suppressing a yawn makes you vulnerable to for maladies like occasional headaches, stiffness of the neck muscles, giddiness, and blurred vision.
  • Urge to breathe: By this particular urge, I mean the fast breath that follows a session of exercise or brisk walk. This is reason enough for sudden loss of senses, fainting, stomach distress, and heart disease.
  • Urge to cry: We all control tears although they threaten to roll down. Yet we tend to brave out the situation hiding our emotional face. But we need not. Repeatedly holding on to tears may lead to health problems as grave as: torticollis, eye ailments, chronic headache, chronic nasal congestion, vertigo, and anorexia.
  • Urge to vomit: A number of skin problems materialize on restraining the urge to vomit—erysipelas, urticaria, milder forms of leprosy, and blemishes, to name a few. Not only this, eye ailments, fever, cough, asthma, occasional nausea, swelling, and anemia also are apt to turn up.
  • Another suppression is observed in the form of altering the menstrual cycle of women. Tablets or injections are available to pre-pone or postpone menstruation. It is never a good option to repeatedly check our natural body system.
