Who Was Narakasura? Why Is His Death Celebrated As Diwali?

In topic

Indian Culture / Storytelling


Sadhguru tells us about Narakasura and his friend Mura, and how they fought many battles together. At his last moment, Narakasura realized all the wrongs he did, and said that my death symbolizes the killing of all the wrongs - so it must be celebrated. On the occasion of Deepawali, Sadhguru tells us, that it is not Narakasura's wrongs that we should celebrate; rather the killing of wrongs within us - that's when the real Deepawali, or Diwali as it is called in North India, happens.
