Miracles _/♥\_ ~> March 4th Day 3 *•.¸(*•.¸♥¸.•*´)¸.•*´
On the fifteen days from the Tibetan/Himalayan New Year, with a New Pisces Moon, leading up to Full Moon on the 16th March, we remember how the Buddha performed a miracle each day. Each miracle accumulating more and more merit, culminating on the 15th Full Moon day with the ‘Day of Miracles’, also called known as Chötrul Düchen, or ‘The Great Prayer Festival’, to awaken the Bodhi-mind, the heart-mind.
DAY 3 ~> A warrior laid down his arms and made offerings to the Buddha. After the Buddha had finished eating he rinsed his mouth with water. From the place where the water fell sprang a lake in which multi-coloured lotus flowers bloomed in water so pure that seven kinds of jewels sparkled from the bottom of the vast lake. Those who heard the Buddha’s teachings were blessed with treasured wisdom and clarity as well as a positive rebirth _/♥\_
~ ☆ ~ Astrologically, the sensitive Moon in Aries opposes warrior Mars today. Mars has just begun a 50-day retrograde in Libra, advocating conflict dialogue and mediation are the means to resolve dispute and find (inner) peace. Yet this is also no ordinary opposition, as both planets connect to April 15th's solar eclipse- close to the upcoming Cardinal Cross of the Central Spiritual Sun April 20th (flagging up solar flares); the configuration urges one to never underestimate the will of the individual’s Divine Light to radiate, illuminate, and simplify, even in challenging situations. _/♥\_
Thanks to unknown artist for 'the gift' illuminating lotus _/\_
