FULGURANCES D’APRÈS SILENCE

rappel

Afin de célébrer la première grande fête de l’année de calendrier hindou, Makar Sankranti, mon cher ami Swami Dharmananda de Rishikesh envoie ce jour à tous ses contacts (dont j’ai l’honneur de faire partie) le message qui suit que je vous livre tel quel. Si vous le désirez, vous pouvez aisément le faire traduire par n’importe quel service de traduction (par exemple http://translate.google.fr/#).

Je vous livre essentiellement son message (Swamiji n’y verrait aucun inconvénient, j’en suis certain) pour montrer à quel point les concepts de silence, de solitude et de méditation, si rarement évoqués dans notre civilisation, et pourtant si importants dans l’absolu, sont fort présents dans le vocabulaire journalier de l’Inde sacrée. Vous les trouverez dans ce texte, parfois maladroitement circonscris sans doute, mais bien vivants:

 

Dear Friends,

This is the first of the holy days of a calendar year.in India. As we celebrate these special days, may your heart rejoice at the gifts that life brings us.

 

Makar Sankranti

 

Today is Makar Sankranti. When the sun shifts its location from one zodiac sign to the other that day is called sankranti. Makar Sankranti is the day when the sun enters the zodiac Capricorn. It is the first of the holy days in the New Year in Hindu calendar. It is from this day,' Uttarayana' or the movement of the sun towards the northern hemisphere starts. According to the present scientific calculations this takes place from the 22nd of Dec. For some specific reasons the Rishis of ancient India considered the northern movement to start from this day. This uttarayan consist of six month period when the sun's rays fall more and more and is considered a very auspicious time for the people of the northern hemisphere.

 

In India people take a early morning Ganga bath and spend the day in fasting, prayer, silence and solitude. In spiritual life our duty is to develop the qualities of the sun and act like the sun. The sun is Pushne nourisher, Savitur creator giver of light, warmth and life. Let us as teachers and healers and instruments of the Divine radiate peace, love and cheer and thru our loving service bring health and well being in the lives of as many as possible. Let us who are already doing this work simply grow in this work more and more.

 

Life is an ever increasing onward movement towards a never ending infinite perfection. Let this onward movement towards increasing perfection become the source of our joy and total self satisfaction.

 

Silence and activity are two aspects of God. Both are source of joy and love and there has to be a balance between these two aspects in our lives. From the depths of inner silence thru daily meditation in the morning let us bring forth creative ideas, and manifests them in our daily lives and then at night again retire to that silence by meditating before falling to sleep. Sleep is unconscious meditation and meditation is conscious sleep.

With best wishes and deep love

Swami Dharmananda
