‘Let the light in my life and wisdom around me always be there’

This fortnight is theperiod of the Divine and we do pujaevery day. Today is the concluding day and also Sharad Poornima/fullmoon. Each poornima (full moon) isassociated with a very significant event in history.

Buddha Poornima, the full moon day in the month of Vaishakh (usually falls in April or May) is connected to the birth,enlightenment and attainment of Mahasamadhi by Gautama Buddha. The next Poornima is dedicated to Rishi Vyasa.Sage Vyasa was the master of both the realms – material as well as spiritual.He knew the ways of the world, and that of the spirit as well. Veda Vyasa organized the entire knowledge, and there wasno knowledge about which he didn’t know. GuruPoornima is the day on which all the Masters of all the Traditions arevenerated. The last full moon is dedicated to Anant or infinity. Celebrating infinity – no boundaries – nobeginning or end.

This month’s full moon is called SharadPoornima. The brightest and without any blemish, it is supposed to staylonger too, the full moon of Celebration. It is said that Divine dance happenedon the day between Lord Krishna and the Gopies– symbolic of grateful devotees. It is said that Lord Krishna danced with allthe Gopis under this moon so manythousands of years ago. Sharad Poornima is known for dance andcelebration. It is the time when devotees feel the presence of the Divine intheir life. This moon is also dedicated to beauty. The sky is clear and thelargest moon shines brightly. Our mind and the moon are connected. When themoon is full, the mind is also full. The energy on the day is very high andcelebration will keep it up. But this energy needs to be channelized.    

With everyfull moon, we find an excuse to celebrate - Celebration with the spiritualflavor.

The periodof last fifteen days was a Divine period. We do all poojas and yagyas. Whatis pooja? Reciprocating what Divinityis doing to us. God makes Sun and Moon go around us, showers flowers, rain andfruits. Imitation of that Divine expression is called pooja. Pooja is the mostnatural way of showing one’s gratitude.


We concludethis beautiful period doing poojawith a playful heart and keeping this intention, “Let the light in my life, theenthusiasm and wisdom around me always be there. I take the light of life intome. I accept wisdom and love.”


Divinity is everywhere like the air. Yet you feel the air near the fan.Similarly, Divinity is everywhere but you feel it more near the fan. Knowledge,yagya and Guru are like the fan. Nearthese you feel the presence of Divinity.
