EYE ON VEDIC FESTIVALS: NINE DAYS
DAY 7: Rising to Timelessness and Freedom.
We have discussed how the nine days of Mother Divine is the journey from the material existence from the base chakra to the heavens and on Day 7, the darkest day, the energy moves from the third eye to the crown chakra and it is the first of 3 days devoted to Saraswati the goddess of wisdom. In this case, the reminder is that everything in the temporal world is changing and the highest aspect of wisdom is Knowledge of the Self and our timeless and eternal nature.
Saraswati is the the slayer of all that is an obstacle in the path to timelessness. Time is one of the biggest bondage and fear in humankind. When we comfort in our life we becomes attached to the material and when are challenged we are also caught up in the fear and challenges. Saraswati reminds us not to get attached to comfort or challenges and go deeper to the Higher Self. Rise above all bondage to be free whether comfortable or despairing. Great day to meditate and devote yourself to why you have come to the planet, to be free and help others. The next three days, Sept 26-28th (in the US) and Sept. 27-29th (in India ) are devoted to wisdom. Fly high these days.
