Everything is about balance
Swami Vivekananda used to say that even if one atom in the Universe goes out of balance, the entire Universe would collapse. So delicate is the balance of the Universe. Likewise, giving and taking, feasting and fasting, gorging on sweets and avoiding sugar, spending and saving, enjoying and introspecting, socialising and solitude, lighting up and saving electricity, having fun but conserving the environment-with these things, Deepavali teaches us to always strive for balance and harmony, and never to get into excesses and imbalance.
This Deepavali, let’s resolve to see beyond the obvious. Wishing everyone a beautiful Festival of Lights.
