A beam of sunlight- what is it in reality?

Turtle swimming in sunlight underwater

A beam of sunlight is really a flood of billions of particles, each one containing a fantastic amount of knowledge about the sun and its inhabitants. When you learn to receive these sunbeams and to understand and interpret their meaning, they will bring you not only the sun’s knowledge, but the sun’s love for all creatures, as well as its life and its strength. The majority of humans gain almost nothing from the sun because they are quite happy to look at it while thinking of other things. But its much better to learn about the nature of these rays …

Like the sun, which sheds its light and warmth throughout the universe, you can have an effect on all regions in space by means of your thoughts and feelings.

Video: Surya Yoga at sunrise

I have just spent six weeks at the Bonfin, the  international spiritual community in the south of France, where the master gave the vast majority of his lectures. Each day started while the last stars were still shining as we climbed up to ‘the rock’ to watch the sunrise. These sunrise meditations, or Surya Yoga, as he sometimes called them, are the most precious moments of my day and I created this video to try and capture, in some small way, their beauty and inspiration. Watch this video on YouTube Here are a few recommendations on preparing for sunrise: Prepare …

Drink light…

Each morning, from dawn onwards, the sun sends a profusion of specks of gold out into space, and we can fill our spirit,  soul, intellect, heart and also our physical body with these specks of gold. Our whole body, from our brain right down to our feet, can benefit from this gold…  There are different kinds of light. The kind our nervous system and our whole organism need the most is light from the sun before it rises.This is the most subtle, spiritual light, and it affects our psychic bodies. This is why, if we know how to look at the sun, something opens up in our solar plexus, and we begin to drink light. It is like a reservoir being filled with a precious quintessence. When the reservoir overflows, our only need is to share this elixir with all living creatures, and there is no greater joy than giving what we have received from the sun.

New vibrations at sunrise

“You are not yet aware that the sun’s rays are able to feed your spirit. Yes, but only if you learn how to receive them, only if you open yourself to them with all your heart and soul. Can you not accept that light is more than a physical vibration, that it is a living entity? As long as you remain closed to this idea, you cannot benefit from all the sun’s riches.

Try to organize your life in such a way that light occupies more and more of a place in it. In spring and summer, go and contemplate the rising sun, with the thought that you can receive its rays in the same way that you take in food, water and air. And speak to them too, saying, ‘O luminous rays, permeate my being; chase away the clouds that darken my sky.’ They already permeate you without your knowing of course, but if you are conscious and pay attention, if you fill yourself with their light and warmth in the conviction that something is growing and developing within you, gradually you will feel revitalized by new vibrations”.

sunrise 2014

As the sun’s rays are just beginning to appear on the horizon, i never regret getting up before 5 am to greet it. The photos are of  particularly beautiful sunrises taken from a spot we call ‘the clump’ in the Ashdown Forest, East Sussex. It’s close to a meditation/ meeting center called the Doves Nest where disciples in the UK meet once a month for spiritual activities, including Surya Yoga- meditating at sunrise. Here’s an extract from the Daily Meditations that describes how we can receive nourishment from the sun’s vibrations….
