No one can say for certain that from among the less privileged, the poor and the marginalized, no great person could have emerged. If their agony had been appreciated sympathetically, and if they had been rehabilitated by society, surely, their potential would find expression. But since society does not give the highest priority to human value, a good number of potential great personalities are getting snuffed out in their early stages…
That is why every course of action of society ought to be judged with an eye to the dictum
“Human beings are divine children.”
The wisdom of society lies in moving together. If in the course of the journey anybody lags behind, if in the darkness of night a gust of wind blows out anyone’s lamp, we should not just go ahead and leave them in the lurch. We should extend a hand to help them, and rekindle their lamps with the flames of our lamps.
While marching together with lamps in our hands,
Someone’s lamp has gone out,
and he is lying beside the road.
Brothers and sisters, will you not stopfor a moment to lift him up?Stop we must, otherwise, the spirit of society is in jeopardy.
In Sanskrit, we have a saying: Samamantrena jayate iti samajah — “Society is the collective movement of a group of individuals who have decided to move together towards a common goal”.
That is, whether people are sinners or victims, they are so only superficially; internally they are filled with potential for purity. The principal object of the sadvipras (a Sanskrit term), which means spiritual revolutionaries, is to explore and bring this potentiality into play. They will accord human value to everyone without exception. Those who have done hateful crimes must be punished, but sadvipras will never hate them, or put an end to them by depriving them of food, because sadvipras are humanists.
Wishing you all a very Happy Diwali. May your heart and home be filled with love, light and best health. Wishing you a year full of prosperity in the things you desire.

A very Happy Diwali to you. God bless us, everyone.
Happy belated Diwali to you.
Happy wali diwali 2 u
A very very Happy Diwali to all of you.
Happy Diwali to you too!
Of course, being visibly “great” is only one type of greatness. Many passed over by society may still be great in ways that we can only appreciate if we get there too. Talking about saints whose contemplative “works” are just as important, if not more, than that of the movers and shakers of this world. 🙂
Nice, thought-provoking post.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I love it!
Thank you! ❤
p.s. I’ve reblogged this with a Chrome app. If the chosen quote and pic in your judgment runs counter to the “no-derivatives” condition, please let me know. Thanks.
It’s absolutely okay because the reblogging condition keeps my name as the writer, credits given. Thank you so much 💫 ❤
Hello Aishwarya! Lovely post, led me to find out more about Diwali -where I found such beautiful arrays of celebration. Reminded me of my reading yesterday from Bible, John 8:12:
“I am the light if the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life”
That promise of light leads to heaven!
Yes Lisa, diwali has a christian dimension too. The light that saved the world calls us to walk the path.
Yes, indeed. Religion is personal, however the respective dimensions have the same values and teaching. I love to connect with each, through words. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts. ❤
Happy diwali…may the light illuminate our souls with truth of reality
I’m celebrating in spirit this wonderful tradition. Thank you for sharing! Happy Diwali!✨❤️✨
