The Inner Celebration of Diwali: Awakening to the Light of the Soul

Brother Chidananda

In this special talk recorded at the Yogoda Satsanga Sakha Math in Ranchi, India, on Diwali in 2019, Swami Chidananda Giri, president and spiritual head of Yogoda Satsanga Society of India/Self-Realization Fellowship, discusses how we can experience the real celebration of Diwali as the inner awakening of the all-powerful divine light perceived by practising yoga, the science of the soul.

Swami Chidanandaji shares how the scientific Kriya Yoga path that Paramahansa Yogananda brought to the world represents the highest teachings of India’s ancient rishis, offering today’s seekers the most practical way to understand the nature of the soul and its oneness with the perfect light of Spirit.

Included is a guided meditation for visualizing the spiritual eye, with instruction for bathing the brain in the light of the spiritual eye—thereby removing the effects of past actions and lighting the inner Diwali lamp of wisdom and bliss.
