Happy Diwali. I wish you all a very happy Diwali. You saw all these varieties of dances. Take a lesson from them that whoever it was or whoever has composed or spoken of it have all been speaking of the same thing.
And the most important thing that they all spoke about was that the Paramatma (God Almighty) is one. They all incarnated in different forms, but the Paramatma is one.
There is no dispute amongst them. They incarnate on Earth to bring about the destruction of evil and to condemn the bad people – and this is happening everywhere.
I find everywhere all the evil people are getting exposed. And now it is your duty also to identify those who are evil-doers, working against the will of God and who can go to any extent for the sake of money. They all will go to hell.
We are not aware of how many hells exist. The environment in which you are seated, the place where you are sitting is far away from hell. This has no relation to hell at all. But by being here, if you practice adharm or commit wrongs, then it can also lead you to hell.
There are several types of hells and arrangements are also done up very well to get there. Because the people who go there do not know where are they going- and those who are saved they go to the heaven- so nobody knows on this level of Earth that he has to go to hell. We will go to hell if we commit wrong.
And the meaning of Diwali is this: that as the lamps are lit outside, similarly they should be lit within you.
