Sadhguru explains the significance of Uttarayana, which begins with the Winter Solstice and is traditionally seen as an auspicious time of the year.

这篇文章中,萨古鲁解释了太阳北行时期的重要性。太阳北行时期从冬至日开始,在传统中被看作一年之中充满吉祥的时候。

 

Sadhguru: We are now at the threshold of Uttarayan, which is a period of harvest. The Sun’s run in relation to planet Earth will shift from the southern run to the northern run – from Dakshinayana to Uttarayan. It is not that the sun is moving anywhere. What is happening in terms of celestial arrangement is that on the winter solstice on December 21, the sun was over the Tropic of Capricorn. From that day, if you watch the sunrise and the movement of the sun, slowly, every day it will shift to the north.    

萨古鲁:我们现在处在太阳北行时期(Uttarayana)的开端,这是收获的时期。太阳与地球的位置关系将从南行转向北行,即从Dakshinayana 转向Uttarayana。从天体排列的角度看,从1222日冬至日开始,太阳的高度在南回归线以上。从这天开始,如果你观察日出以及太阳的运行,会发现它在慢慢地每天向北移动。

 

People who have been spiritually aware have always identified this transition as a possibility for human consciousness to blossom. Particularly, the first half of Uttarayan until the equinox in March is a period where the maximum amount of grace is available. The human system is more receptive to grace at that time than any other. History clearly indicates that the maximum number of people have attained in this phase of the sun in the Northern Hemisphere.

在灵性上有觉知的人,总是将这一转变看作人类意识绽放的一种可能性。尤其是在Uttarayana的前三个月,即从冬至日到三月春分,这是可获得最多恩典的时候。人体系统在这个时间比其他任何时候都对恩典更具接收性。历史向我们显示,北半球在太阳北行的这个时期,有最多的人达到开悟。

 

One of the most famous stories is of Bhishma waiting on his deathbed of arrows for many weeks. Though he was severely injured, he held onto his life until Uttarayan came because he wanted to make use of this transition in nature, to make his own transition possible. Gautama also attained on the third full moon day after Uttarayan. And in South India, there are examples of innumerable saints, sages, siddhas and yogis who have made the transition during this period.   

其中最有名的一个故事就是Bhishma,他临终时在自己的箭床上等待了很久。虽然他伤势严重,但他想将自己的生命坚持到Uttarayana时期的到来,因为他想利用大自然的这个变迁,来实现自己的转化。乔达摩也是在Uttarayana的第三个满月日开悟。在南印度,有无数的圣人、悉达和瑜伽士在这个时期实现了转化。

 

in terms of sadhana, Dakshinayana is for purification. Uttarayan is for enlightenment.

从灵性练习的角度讲,太阳南行时期有利于净化。太阳北行时期则有利于开悟。只有完全给予的人,才能知道生命的全部。其他人不会知道的。


During the southern run, what is below the anahata can be purified very easily. During the northern run, what is above the anahata can be worked much more easily. That is why in terms of sadhana, Dakshinayana is for purification. Uttarayan is for enlightenment. This is the period of receptivity, of grace and enlightenment, of attainment of the ultimate. This is the time to harvest, and it is also the reason agricultural harvests begin during this period. Pongal is the harvest festival. So it is not only the time of harvesting food grains, but also the time to harvest human potential.    

在太阳南行时期,心轮之下的部分可以轻松地得到净化。在太阳北行时期,在心轮之上的部分则能够轻松地更好更多地运作。这就是为什么从灵性练习的角度讲,太阳南行时期有利于净化。太阳北行时期则有利于开悟。这是接受恩典和开悟的时期,达到终极的时期。这是收获的时候,也是农耕收割在这个时期开始的原因。Pongal是丰收节。所以这不仅是收获谷物的时节,也是收获人类潜力的时候。

 

At the beginning of Uttarayan, we have set up a certain opportunity for people to become more consciously receptive to grace. There will be 21 days of sadhana for ladies, which will start at the beginning of January up until what is called “Dhanya Pournami” or “Thaipusam” in Tamil Nadu. This sadhana will be given out to people wherever they may be. We also give a 42-day sadhana for men which will begin on Thaipusam and last until Mahashivarathri. 

Uttarayana开始的时候,我们为人们提供了一个机会,来变得更有意识地去接受恩典。这个机会就是Shivanga。女士的Shivanga为期21天,将从一月开始,直到“Dhanya Pournami”,在泰米尔纳德邦则被称为“Thaipusam”(大宝森节)。这个灵性练习可以传授给人们,不管他们身处何地。我们也会为男士提供一个42天的Shivanga灵性练习,从大宝森节开始,到大湿婆之夜结束。

 

The human body, if brought to a certain level of intensity and sensitivity, is a cosmos by itself. Everything that happens in the external sphere, in a subtle way, manifests in the body. It is happening to everyone, it is just that most people do not notice this. But a more organized and purposeful rearrangement of the human mechanism could be done if one becomes conscious of the external movement and aligns that with the movement that is happening within the human system. If you want this body of flesh and bone to imbibe the nature of the cosmic body, understanding and being in tune with this movement of Uttarayan and Dakshinayana is very essential.

人体如果被提升到某种层次的强度和敏感度,就自成一个宇宙。外在世界发生的一切,都以一种精微的方式在人体中显现。这在每个人身上发生着,只是多数人并没有注意到这点。但是,如果一个人意识到了外在的运动,并将其与人体系统内在的运动协调连接起来,就可以实现人体机制中一种更有组织性的重组。如果你想让这个骨肉的身体汲取宇宙天体的本质,那么理解UttarayanaDakshinayana的运行,并与其协调同步,就至关重要。

 

Love and Grace
