Devils Have A Speck Of Compassion

Today, it’s Badi Diwali. The government has put a ban on the sale of firecrackers in Delhi NCR which is indeed a good step. Diwali is a great festival for hindus as Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. During that exile he killed Ravan.
But what I feel is that all the devils or asuras have some speck of compassion in them. What killed them is ego. Still all the demons in hindu legends maintained their set of virtues. Demon Ravan was the son of a priest. He guided the other devotees with the different ways to worship. He was a great scholar. He composed Shiv Stotra. Other demons like Shankhchuda , Bali were although dreaded by the gods because of the destruction they caused. Still it is worth noticing that they took care of the subject under their jurisdiction. This Diwali we must change the way we look at the past. When we celebrate festivals we should grab the true meaning . Try to evaluate both the positive and negative qualities of these demons.
We must feel that during this time we can heal our inner conscience; meditate and read scriptures. Isn’t it?
These directors and producers of the TV serials and movies have started to manipulate our way of thinking about the heavenly figures. Asuras are symbols of Negativity while the Suras are the symbols of Positivity. Positivity and Negativity are both necessary for the balance of energy on earth. Both Suras and Asuras keep on taking different forms. Anyone who does wrong is an Asura, it is not necessary for him to carry horns on his head; whereas anyone can be Sura or Devta if he does good , it is not necessary for him to carry a halo.
