Sometime back, we talked about the moon and how it influences the mind. Even the word "honey-moon" comes from the fact that moon is related to one's emotions or ecstacy! The word "Lunacy" came from the observation of the Greeks the impact of moon on brain" :) It is said the on full moon days, the lunatics become more disturbed.. not that moon is causing it, but whatever we are, it gets amplified or heightened. Hence the attempt to bring-in consciously what we want to amplify in our life.
Looking around, we do find many living masters (from India) celebrating this. Here is a short list.
Every month has a full moon, but this particular full moon is considered as the full moon of the Guru. This happens because of the Angels, Gurus and Ascended Masters, coming down into this Earth plane during this time to help the world… They become more available for those who seek.
Purnima -means full moon.. Guru purnima is the full moon of the Guru, which is occuring on July 27th.
The Full Moon of the Guru is considered as a sacred day in India. It is the day when the Gurus remove the karma of the students caught up in financial, relationship and health issues. This once-a-year Full Moon is when you can experience a rapid-release of karma.
Moon is consciousness, whether it is Indian tradition or Greek tradition and in many other traditions. Phases of the moon brings different levels of consciousness...As we mentioned earlier, major Indian religious festivals are celebrated based on moon phases, like Chaturdhi (4th moon), Shashti (6th moon),Navami (9th moon), Ekadasi (11th moon) etc.
Accordingly full-moon (purnima) is always considered good for Enlightenment. We will talk about new moon (Amavasya) at a later time.
Buddism and full-moon- The Moon and Religious Observances -The outstanding events in the life of the Buddha took place on full moon days.
