Festivity is in the air! Diwali, the festival of lights, is just around the corner.
The rows of lamps we light on Diwali dispel the external darkness that surrounds us. However, how do we illuminate our heart? All the scriptures and saints proclaim that the only sure way is to ignite the lamp of love for God in our heart. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu says:
kṛṣṇa sūrya sama; māyā haya andhakāra
yāhāṅ kṛṣṇa, tāhāṅ nāhi māyāra adhikāra
(Chaitanya Charitāmrit, Madhya Leela, 22.31)
“Shree Krishna is the radiant sun, while Maya is darkness. Where there is Shree Krishna, Maya can’t exist.”
Therefore, light and darkness cannot coexist. The minute we bring God’s splendid forms, glorious names, sublime virtues, delightful pastimes, magnificent abodes, or His benevolent saints into our heart, it is filled with peace and joy. That is when we celebrate a real Diwali. The Radha Krishna Temple of Dallas presents an opportunity to experience such a Diwali – not only light up our external world, but also illumine the internal.
We always keep looking for activities that give us pure joy and fun. The Diwali celebrations at the Radha Krishna temple of Dallas will be providing meaningful fun for the whole family. You will not only have fun, but will be a part of a noble cause. When you participate in this celebration, you help manifest the temple. Since the proceeds go into building of the temple right here in our community, you will be investing in the well-being of future generations to come. What better way to share our good fortune and have fun!
The Diwali celebration is going to be a sparkling and culturally rich event. Join us to reinvigorate with a splash of hope, joy, and harmony and to immerse in the light of divine love. We are excited about this evening as it is shaping out to be a special and memorable Diwali, which includes:
