You are waiting for me to speak to you…but Nature has already said it all! Can you see that a tremendous event is taking place all around you? Yes, you can feel that a new wave from the Cosmic ocean is breaking and in a short while the whole earth will be newly arrayed with flowers, trees and birds. What splendid attire! It is the most extraordinary phenomenon of life, this regeneration and renewal…
For initiates, this period of the Spring Equinox is most important. They use it as a time of purification, of regeneration. Yes. it is not enough to notice that the birds are singing, flowers are appearing above the ground and people are more cheerful than usual. There is important work to be done- the work of renewal. When you go to the sunrise in the morning, you should have nothing else in mind. Let other matters wait, put aside everything old and worn, and concentrate on the new life, enter into communication with the great current springing forth from the heart of the universe…
Each Spring Nature sends us everything we need in the way of stimulating energies for the rest of the year, and it is up to us not to let those energies pass by without seizing them.

I hope those of you in the Northern hemisphere also get a chance to greet the sun in meditation.
Here is the link to a video I created last Summer: Surya Yoga at Sunrise. It has some stunning photos of sunrises with passages from the master that can be used for meditation. There is also a lovely soundtrack of bird song.
