What Guruji says on 13/8/2011


Knowledge given on 13/08/2011

Today is a full moon day and is also called Raksha Bandhan. What we call these days as the friendship band, people tie friendship bands, this is a new trend, but this is actually an old version changed into a new thing. Tying this Raksha Bandhan has been there for ages. Today the sisters tie to the brothers what is called as Rakhi on their hand saying,’ I will protect you and you protect me’. The last full moon was Guru Poornima and this full moon is Raksha Bandhan. Like that every full moon is dedicated to some celebration. Main thing is you should celebrate life. That is important and in India there are so many celebrations. You finish one, you have to prepare for the other. And see these are the rainy days. In ancient time, people didn’t have much to do at home. In rainy days there is no harvest, nothing. When rain comes you are just sitting at home. Celebrate, make different types of food and sing and greet each other, wish each other good. It is a wonderful wonderful practice. 

Raksha Bandhan

Weekly Knowledge 115          20 Aug 1997, Denmark

This full moon is dedicated to the seers — the rishis. It is also called the raksha bandhan. Bandhan means bondage, raksha means protection. A bondage that protects you. Your bondage to the knowledge, to the master, to the truth, To The Self, All Saves You. A Rope Can Be Tied To Either Protect Or Strangle You. The Small Mind And Mundane Things can strangle you. The big mind or knowledge saves you. Raksha bandhan is that bondage that saves you.

You are bound by your bondage to the satsang. Your bondage to the master, to the truth, to the ancient knowledge of the rishis is your savior.

Bonding is essential in life. And let the bonding be divine in a life free from bondage.
