The Sacred month of Ashada Masa
On 28th June, we entered the most auspicious month of the year, known as Ashada Masa in Sanskrit. This is the month during which we receive the Highest and the Purest energies directly from the Source of All, the realm of God Himself.
Since these energies are so powerful, there are no inauspicious moments in this month. This period is like a gift from God, and is most suited for intense Meditations.
In the past, people knew about the sacredness of this month and therefore, they would not waste any time in worldly matters like marriages and other celebrations; they would spend all their time in Spiritual activities that would help them advance spiritually.
Over the years, this knowledge got distorted and people started believing that Ashada Masa is inauspicious for worldly activities. Its importance for Spiritual activities was forgotten.
The energies that the earth is receiving keeps increasing in intensity and reaches the peak on 12th July. This day receives the maximum energies and is known as Guru Poornima. The real Guru is God Himself, who takes us from darkness to Light. The month ends on 26th July.
So, let us make the most of this Divine Gift of Ashada Masa by meditating and channelling Light as much as possible and spread peace to our troubled world. (Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda.)
