Saka Dawa Full Moon Lunar Eclipse ~ 15th June'11

Tomorrow's Full Moon full moon eclipse is a big day for Tibetan Buddhists, marking SAKA DAWA, the day we celebrate the birth, enlightenment and parinirvana of Sakyamuni Gothama Buddha. ♥_/|\_ ૐ

This eclipse, with the Moon at 24 Sagittarius, aligns with the centre of the Galaxy, opening the portal for the mind-stream in truth to imbibe ...and embody the sacred cosmic love-light. Lunar eclipse is in effect from sunset in Europe, rising to perfect culmination at 21:14 (bst) with a central heart connection between planet Earth and Moon. For the meditator this is an optimum opportunity for impartial observation of all sensation (internal-external, yin-yang, sun-moon) harmonising earthly heart-mind with our illiminating awakened spirit.

Karma multiplied (x 10million during eclipse) ♥ = Breathe, be the LIGHT ~> kind to self & others ~> In presence living the LOVE ♥_/|\_ ૐ x

And as the radiant Sun in intellectual sign Gemini opposite Moon in forward thinking Sagittarius am reminded of the Buddha's words "All is mind. What we think we become" ♥ ...
more thoughts to come later... xxx :)

With love & thanks for amazing illustration 'Above the Below' by wonderful Mr Bill Brouard ♥
