A YOGI’S JOURNEY
On March 23, 2014 country heads and students alike were found on the streets distributing food, housewives and members of the press were seen feeding cows and dogs, while top bureaucrats and businessmen were performing havans. All these were part of the unique celebrations of Yogi Ashwini's birthday are bound to get the attention of many.
In earlier times, birth anniversaries were celebrated to mark one’s growing wiser by a year and also closer to merging back from where one has come. Traditionally, birthdays were celebrated by performing havan to connect to the cosmos and awaken the hidden potential inside through specific chants as prescribed by the Guru. Havans are a medium to interact with divine being, the proof of which can be seen in the divine manifestations that happen and are visible in the agni at Vedic havans conducted under the guidance of Yogi Ashwini.
Our ancients followed the Lunar calendar, which very accurately predicts the congruence of energy on various days. Take for example, the seventh day of Krishna paksh in the month of chaitra, which falls on march 23rd this year. It is a powerful day, the day when Yogi Ashwini was born and the day which resonates with the energy corresponding to His energy form.
While every birth anniversary is a point of transition in the life of an individual, there are three that are especially powerful – the day you turn 25, 50 and 75 respectively. On these specific days the shakti of an individual goes through a major transformation which can be used for manifold progress. The 25th year marks the age at which one enters the physical life after completing education, 50 the time when one starts devoting his energy to connecting with the cosmos and shaktis therein to prepare for a higher birth and 75 when one leaves everything to merge back with the source, which is the ultimate purpose of life.
