“There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond us all, beyond the heavens, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in our hearts.” - Chandyoga Upanishad
This Summer Solstice on 21 June marks the yearly planetary moment when the tilt of the Earth brings us closest to the Sun making this the longest and lightest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The Solstice is a time to connect with this powerful force and marks a pivotal time of renewal, new beginnings and a time to recognize and revitalize the inner light.
Many ancient traditions recognized and honored this occasion with gatherings and rituals to celebrate the height of the Sun's power and to benefit from its energy. In the Vedas, the Sun is the Supreme symbol of wisdom, truth, the source of prana or vital life force, and the dispeller of darkness to illuminate one’s life and consciousness. Sun practices are built into this tradition as the benefits of connecting to this source of vitality are well-known and proven to have immense healing and enlightening effects.
This year we have the unique opportunity to celebrate this solstice with Svamiji via a complimentary Zoom celebration! As Svamiji has mentioned that it is beneficial to continue celebration and solstice connection through to the next day we will be streaming past midnight eastern time! We look forward to having you join us.
