It’s that time of the year again to play with colors and spread joy and celebrate the festival of ‘Holi’. As per the ancient legend, Holi marks the victory of ‘good’ over ‘evil’. With time, even though the celebration styles have changed the essence remains the same. The huge bonfire that is lit on the Holi eve is a symbol of triumph over all the impurities and negativities in life. Once these impurities are burnt, what remains is the magnificent pure form of Oneself, which is the ‘Pure Soul’.
Consider this, while driving, if there is fog and mist on the way, can you see clearly what lies ahead of you? No! However, the vision becomes clear as soon the skies have cleared. Similarly, once we get rid of the impurities of anger, pride, greed, deceit, ego and falsehood we are able to experience the eternal bliss of one’s real Self. One’s faults can only be burned by the grace of someone who Himself has become free of all these impurities. And what remains in the end? It is the eternal and unmatched bliss of one’s Real Self.
So what are you waiting for? Get ready to celebrate Holi by winning over the negativities in life!
