The full Moon is a mesmerising sight to behold. It brings out the romantic in us and has inspired poets and writers over the centuries. Be it the ancient vedic, chinese, babylonian or sumerian civilization, it was the Lunar calendar that was consulted. Many of the popular festivals like Holi , Buddha Purnima, Guru Purnima, Guru Nanak Jayanti, Kartik Purnima are celebrated on full moon days. Buddha was born on a full moon day. His renunciation, enlightenment, first sermon, his Nirvana and many other important events in his life of eighty years, occurred on full moon days. A full moon is that phase of the moon when it is completely illuminated as seen from the Earth. During this time, the Earth is right between the Sun and the Moon, with all three in a line. In Vedic Astrology, the Moon represents the mind and, accordingly, it indicates a person’s thinking and feeling processes. The full moon is a positive opportunity for your emotional and spiritual growth. Since the full moon pours down a tremendous amount of energy, you must be in a calm state of mind to reap its benefit. This time can increase your positive energy or conversely, it can wreak havoc on your emotions. Whatever is going on in your body, mind and spirit will be amplified. But practicing pranayama, yoga and meditation can help counter these effects. The pineal gland, one of our seats of spiritual growth situated at the centre of the brain, is also affected by the Moon. As our bodies consist of 70% water, the full moon helps us to deepen our meditation thus relaxing the mind. The 'Full Moon Meditation' guided by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar rejuvenates our body and mind. This meditation is done sitting in the direction of east or west and preferably in the open under a full Moon.
