Rest Now...

Navaratri begins today. Yesterday I had the fortune of being in Ashram satsang with Guruji! The soothing presence made me to doze off or go in deep meditation or whatever, so I missed some of His words, but here are the ones that I heard, not verbatim...: " These nine days and nights are for complete rest to the mind. like the child takes rest for nine months in mother's womb, creation is at rest in these nine days. Just like somewhere 200 km away, turbines are rotating under a water fall, and generating electricity that gives light here, the chanting of mantras relaxes mind and purifies the atmosphere. You just need to soak in these vibrations. All five elements that the creation is made up of, are used in the pujas. And few times in between, the meaning of the rituals is told, just to satisfy the curiosity of the mind. Do you know of the butterfly effect!? It says that fluttering of wings of a butterfly in japan can cause motion of clouds in china! This shows that the microscopic and macroscopic worlds are thoroughly connected. Navaratri is honouring and observing this relation. "

Vivek has posted the schedule on his blog.
