Diwali is the festival of light!

Letters (Originals)

An undated, handwritten letter by Osho.

Osho's Diwali message

Diwali is the festival of light!

But man has corrupted it.

Because the inner self is not illuminated by the lamps outside.

Yes – it certainly creates the illusion that the light is coming from within!

I just wish that the light outside could dispel the darkness within.

But clay lamps are unable to illuminate consciousness.

I say: Leave these childish games!

Celebrate the festival of light, for sure, but light the lamp of meditation.

Become the light yourself, only then does darkness disappear.

Rajneesh Ke Pranaam
