Chitra Pournami

Enhance the feminine in you

Big image
Allowing the feminine to find its place in any society is very important. If just masculine finds expression, we will have enough to eat, but we will have no life to live. If you want to use analogies, if you call the root the masculine, the flower and the fruit is feminine. The very purpose of the root is to bring the flower and the fruit. If that does not happen, the root will go waste.

Let's enhance the feminine in each one of us and express the exuberance within on this Chitra Pournami (3rd May)

and others for 10 minutes.

lamp. Otherwise, play the Arati in Sadhguru’s voice. You may then offer the Arati to everyone present.

If guests want to offer music or songs for Devi in devotion, they can do so.
