Full Moon Meditation

Full moon meditation

The moon has always been an integral part of our lives. Whether it is celebrating a festival or starting an auspicious task, or meditating, we consider the movements of the moon.

For example, festivals such as Ramzan, Guru Purnima and Holi are celebrated according to the movements of the moon.

It is very good to meditate on a full moon day.

The moon has an effect on water and our body contains a lot of water. Hence on the day of Purnima or Fulll Moon it is beneficial to do meditation.

Let us see how the moon effects our body: Indian ancient scriptures such as Vishnu Purana talk about the origin of the moon. According to this purana, the moon has emerged from the Milky ocean with his soft and snowy beams.

Food that we consume is converted into 2 parts – mind energy and prana. The mind energy is centered in the pineal gland area from which vital hormones get secreted.

The moon enters this gland to take control of all our activities from night till the time we wake up. The rays of the moon affect human beings, animals, plants, water and so on. Our body consists of 60% water. So, the full moon meditation helps the seekers in going inward, transcend the mind, and feel the divinity within.

The 'Full Moon Meditation' guided by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji rejuvenates our body and mind. This meditation is done sitting in the direction of east or west. It is a wonderful experience to do this meditation sitting in the cool rays of the moon.
