Barah Maha: Maghar

By
No items found.

In the month of Maghar (16 November – 13 December), cold descends. Pausing takes place, a slowing down of life. We witness a dormancy in nature. Guru Nanak Sahib says, this month is also good; this month also feels good, as long as the virtues of 1-Light are within. Is the slowing down of life inviting us to enter within? Can we slow down to hear the murmur within? The Eternal One exists within. There is no separation. Internalize the Eternal, become eternal. We pause. We question. Have we inculcated the virtues of 1-Light?
