Special Days for Meditation — March 2017
Energetically, this month is a base and a preparation for many new energies which will be flowing to the Earth in the coming months. The energies that are prevailing now contain the intense Pralaya energies, healing and nurturing energies and also energies that work on the chaos created through the churning processes. The energies of the eclipses of February also continue to be present and influence us.
The intention of all these energies is to bring change and help in the individual’s Spiritual growth. There is a lot of resistance to this which naturally leads to chaos and confusion to prevail; at both the individual and global levels. Do not panic at such developments. Such events manifest as change is required. In this transition phase where we are preparing ourselves to become Satya Yuga citizens, being open and embracing the changes is our only way.
This mixed energies present also explains the lack of clarity at all times. There will be phases where many things are confusing to the individual. Do not expect yourself to comprehend everything occurring in your life. Go with the flow without being too analytical.
At the individual level, many deep rooted characteristics are surfacing which we have ignored or not wanted to deal with in the past. This surfaces in many ways – mental stress, poor health and jobs getting affected. More than the sphere where it influences, the underlying cause for the issue shows us the aspects within, that has to be dealt with. Clearing the issue on the inner brings solutions in the physical world. And these issues are very personal to the individual. What affects one, need not affect the other in the same way.

The pace of Time is periodically hastening and there are various spiritual factors for this. But many are struggling to keep up with their life because of this. Some even struggle to complete the bare essentials and many important things are kept aside in an effort to prioritize. Deep breathing helps. Also imagine a lot of Golden Light within and connect to it often and take its help. This will ease our struggle with Time.

This month and period is also a very good phase to pray to our ancestors and clear any pending karmas and runas present. Pray to your ancestors along with your daily prayers. It helps. Clearing these aspects also influences smoothening of many issues of our lives.
This New Moon Day, many energies relating the ancestors will be released. Be open and receive them and pray to your ancestors for Peace, good health and prosperity – both for you personally and for your family.
This is also a wonderful period for prayers and Sankalpas in the Spiritual areas. The intent behind each prayer has deep influence. Praying for self-improvement, growth and for World Peace have huge impacts.

The Special Days of March are –
12th March – PURNIMA, HOLI
This Full Moon Day is a highly energetic day. Please do not forget to make Sankalpas and important prayers on this day. It is also a wonderful day to initiate any long pending projects.
On this day after moon rise, we also practice Kama Dahana, which is the burning of the Arishatvargas. The Rishis suggest the following technique to be practiced after 7pm (respective local time). If you are interested, you can also practice the technique of Purnima mentioned in January’s Special Day’s article and then follow it up with the Kama Dahana technique.
Kama Dahana Technique
Connect to Agni Deva (Fire God) and offer your love and respects. Then pray to Him to help you burn the different aspects one by one. Imagine a Homa Kunda in front of you and pray to Agni Deva to be present as fire till you complete the entire technique.
Then imagine each of the following characteristics mentioned, one by one. Gather them as black energies in front of you for about 3 minutes each and then put it into the fire and imagine them to be getting burnt. Then proceed to the next aspect.
The aspects to be burnt are —
- Kama – Lust
This aspect deals with Lust and the perversions in the individuals.
- Krodha – Anger, Rage and Fury
In this aspect, we deal with the energies of anger which is present within us. It also helps to remove the energies of hatred and revenge.
- Lobha – Greed and Miserliness
Other than the aspects of greed and miserliness, we also deal with lack of contentment and the inability to manifest abundance.
- Moha – Attachment and Possessiveness
Through this aspect, we overcome our attachments and the possessive nature within.
- Madha – Arrogance
Arrogance and Anger are related to each other as one camouflages the other. The aspect of arrogance is dealt with.
- Matsarya – Jealousy
In this aspect, we deal with both envy and jealousy.
- Swashlaga – Self Praise
Though not a part of the Arishadvargas, the energies of this aspect is difficult to sublimate directly and requires to be consciously removed from the system. Swashlaga deals with the individual seeking praise and attention, non-humility and the dominant ‘I’ aspect of the individual.
You should feel light after having removed these aspects. Then imagine a lot of dark-Blue Light coming from above and filling you. Keep experiencing this Light atleast for 15 minutes. There is no mantra.
20th March – EQUINOX
Equinox is when the Sun is directly over the equator. Many new and intense energies will be released on this day. Some rare Pralaya energies will also be anchored for this Pralaya period.
These energies are important and help all in the coming period. The energies helps the individual in their growth, and to come out of their ‘old ways’. It also helps us cope up with the changes occurring.
Along with the weather, Equinox also marks a shift in energy patterns on the Earth. The Rishis and Light workers work hard on this day, as the energies available are brilliant.
Following is a technique that can be practiced on Equinox to connect and absorb the energies.
Duration – 1 hour
First pray to and connect to the 2017 Purusha and Shakti. Seek their help and blessing to receive the Equinox Light and energies. Then with your intention connect to the Equinox energies and pray to them as well.
Also pray for healing, nurturing and for assistance to cope through the Pralaya process.
Then imagine an abundance of light-Blue Light coming from above and allow the same Light to fill your entire body. Keep experiencing the Light and imagine your body to be radiating with this Light.
Repeat the mantra “Om Yantra Shakti Vishuva-yai Namaha” silently throughout.
27th March – AMAVASYA
The New Moon Day is very suitable to connect to the ancestors, pay our regards to them and to burn the associated karmas and runas. The energies of this day generally are not meant for material pursuits. Maintain a low key and go ahead with life.
The Rishis suggest practicing the following technique on the New Moon Days. They help in absorbing the necessary energies and also to be peaceful from within.
Duration – 1 hour
Imagine a lot of soft-Green Light coming from above and filling you completely. Experience this Light in your body throughout the meditation.
Repeat the mantra “Om Apoorvaya Annamayi Brahmaya Namaha” silently.
28th March – UGADHI (Lunar New Year)
Note – As the occasion is based on a Lunar date, there is a general confusion whether it falls on the 28th or the 29th. The Rishis will be invoking Ugadhi Purusha on the 28th and the Lunar New Year energies will be available on this day itself.
♦ ♦ ♦
It is a very auspicious day to take Sankalpas and Spiritual resolutions. Wonderful energies will be available throughout the day and we can meditate as much as we want.
On this day, a Personality in charge of the Year called as Ugadhi Purusha will be invoked by the Rishis. We too can connect to this Personality and place our prayers and concerns to Him. We can pray not only for ourselves and our family, but for the entire humanity.
The Rishis mention that most likely, the energies of the Ugadhi Purusha will be different to what we are used to in the past years. There is nothing to worry about. The personality will be bringing separate energies for humanity and different energies for Mother Earth.
Many decision relating to the future of the Earth and humanity will be decided and everyone will be made aware of this at the astral level. Ugadhi Purusha want to bring lot of energies relating to our transition, destruction of the dark and also bring about many changes on this day. So be open, receive the rare and precious gifts and energies brought by Him and utilize them well in your life.
