Lighting Up Our Hearts in this Diwali

This lightening of lamps during Diwali is of course a holy ritual but apart from that it gives a significant message and that is, to introspect our dark heart and lighten it with lamp of transcendental knowledge. Jealousy, hatred, envy, arrogance, lust, greed etc these are some symptoms of dark heart and everyone of us has dark side of heart. Where can one avail this knowledge which can eradicate this darkness? Which school or college teaches about that? This knowledge is not a syllabus of ordinary books but It's given in only our scriptures like Gita and Bhagavatam and can be received by the grace of God and genuine spiritualists. Peculiarity of this knowledge is its revealed into the heart of the student so an illiterate can also avail the benefits. The glories of our scripture is that they focus more into our heart than out side surrounding, Gita although spoken on battlefield, Lord didn't mentioned anything about martial arts or fighting techniques but it was all about how to fight inner war with our bad conditionings. Bhagavad Gita compare transcendental knowledge to, the Sun, a boat and blazing fire(BG Ch 4). Just like Sun dissipates the darkness, this knowledge dissipates the darkness of ignorance similarly just like a boat helps one to cross over the river this knowledge can help us to cross over the river of birth and death and just like fire turns wood into ashes this knowledge burns all sins.
