Shiv is the Adi yogi (or eternal yogi), and he is also the Natraj (or king of dance and drama). Praying to Shiva is a celebration. Shiva can often be seen drinking Bhaang or cannabis-laced drink and dancing with his group of 'ganas' and 'pretas.' He lives in joy, and so should you. For celebration obliterates many of the useless worries that preoccupy us mentally most of the time.

In the daily grind of life, it is effortless to forget how blessed we are. Our focus tends to be only on what we lack and what we want. This perception is so strong that we often do not see the pleasant and comfortable surroundings we live in and all the resources we have at our command.

Gratitude is the only practice that halts our negative outlook and gives us the divine vision to see how loved and well cared we are. When a grateful heart starts to count its blessings, it is confounding to see how long the list is.

So stop. Please hear me. Close your eyes and focus on God or whatever you believe in most, and say 'thank you.' Thank you for everything you have.

Yes, our nature is such that we always want more, and that is ok. But let us also acknowledge how much we already have in our lives; Our loved ones, food, clothes, house, health, and so-so much more.

So Thank you, God.

Chaitra Purnima

A day of prayers and festivities. A day that is Purnima or full moon day. It is also Hanuman Jayanti. Hanuman Jayanti is the day when lord Hanuman’s birth is celebrated.

A day that is also the beginning of New Year in many states. In Assam Rongali Bihu is celebrated. In Kerala Vishu is celebrated and in Bengal Phoela Baishakh is celebrated. The Hanuman Jayanti this year is especially auspicious as it falls on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually the marked day in the Hindu calendar when devotees offer prayers to Lord Hanuman.

Lord Hanuman is the embodiment of devotion, strength, humility, intelligence and courage. He blesses his devotees with ‘bal’ or strength and courage, ‘Buddhi’ or wisdom and understanding and ‘vidya’ or knowledge, skills, and intelligence. People fast on this day and read the Hanuman Chalisa, offer bananas and ladoos at Hanuman temples and smear sindoor on Lord Hanuman.

It is believed that Lord Hanuman once asked Sita mata why she applied sindoor every day. She replied that it was for the long life and welfare of Lord Ram. Immediately on hearing this Lord Hanuman smeared his entire body with sindoor.

As per the scriptures Hanuman is the only living God who is alive till today. Whenever one chants the name of Ram, Lord Hanuman is sure to come and listen and participate in the prayers. Such is the devotion of Hanuman for Ram.

Lord Ram was the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. On Chaitra Purnima day, people also perform Vishnu puja in many ways, like Satya Narayan Puja. So this day is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, Ram and Hanuman.

...Jai Shri Ram...Jai Shri Ram...Jai Shri Ram...
