Diwali Commemorates the War of Dharma Against Modern Narakasura

November 12, 2012  by: Paulose  Points: 15   Category: Inspirational Stories    Views: 460

Diwali is the festival of light. It is the festival of victory over darkness or evil. Hindus celebrate this festival with great enthusiasm and joy. It is the commemoration of Lord Krishna’s victory over Narakasura, the personification of evil. Who will redeem the people of India from the Narakasura of corruption?

         

Diwali is a Hindu festival that commemorates the victory of Lord Krishna over Narakasura, the mythological king of hell and head of all evils who oppressed people of the earth and gods of heaven. When the gods, including Lord Indra, and righteous people on the earth were tortured by Narakasura, they prayed Lord Vishnu to protect them from the tyranny of the monstrous king. Lord Vishnu took the avatar of Lord Krishna and killed Narakasura. The victory of Lord Krishna is celebrated by the Hindus as Diwali festival with decoration of lights.

Another legend says that Diwali is the festival of Lord Rama’s victory over the demon-king Ravana, who abducted Sita, wife of Lord Rama. When Lord Rama, another avatar of Lord Vishnu, returned victoriously to Ayodhya after his 14-year-long exile and vanquishing Ravana, people welcomed him with illumination of lights and display of firecrackers.
Diwali is the festival of lights, indicating the victory over darkness. The message of the festival is that evil never wins, although it may appear to yield a temporary victory.

Modern Narakasura of India

India is under the evil spell of the corruption monster Narakasura, who is devastating the country and oppressing righteous people. Will the spirit of Diwali annihilate this corruption Narakasura?

The soul of India that has been enlightening the whole world from the dawn of history is still alive, craving for justice, truth, fraternity and peaceful freedom. The soul of India is aware that corruption is eating up the fabric of Indian society like a cancerous disease. But which avatar can redeem India as well as the corrupted countries of the world from the cruel and oppressive hold of corruption demons?

Hindu Dharma against corruption

The Sanatan Hindu Dharma is against corruption because it gives more importance to sacrifice than accumulation of wealth. It insists doing duty more than seeking for the pleasure of self. The Vedic text Bhagavad Gita says that corruption originates in greed, which is one of the gateways to hell.(Bhagavad Gita 16:21) Corruption is against Dharma becauses it feeds selfishness and crushes justice. It is unfortunate that the leaders of the country who are expected to be role models are corrupted and lead the country in the path of corruption. Gits points out that if the political leaders models of corruption, they cannot play a decisive role in shaping the values of society.(Bhagavad Gita 3:21) There is no wonder that last year in the corruption list of the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index India was ranked 95th out of 178 countries.

War of Dharma against the modern Narakasura

A war has been declared in India recently against the monstrous demon Narakasura. The Indian soul is awakening to fight against corruption. Diwali the festival of victory over evil will surely enlighten the consciousness of Dharma in the Indian people.
