At the onset of the Tamil month of Margazhi, Sadhguru speaks about the spiritual significance of this time and how we can make use of it to create balance and stability within ourselves.

在泰米尔日历中Margazhi月的开端,萨古鲁谈论了这个时候对灵性修行的重要意义,以及我们如何使用这个时间来在自己内在创造平衡和稳定。

Sadhguru: We are at a time of the year which is considered significant for those on the spiritual path. The Tamil month of Margazhi starts from December 16th. At this time of year the planet Earth is closest to the sun. In the northern hemisphere this should have been the hottest month, but it is the coolest because the northern face of the planet is facing away from the sun. The closeness to the sun renders an angle where the sun’s rays are diffused as they hit the planet. They fail to warm the earth as they would have if it were a little away. But in terms of the sun’s gravity functioning on the planet, right now it is at the highest. January 2nd, 2017 is the day when the planet is closest to the sun, so the maximum pull of the sun’s gravity happens at this time. That is the effect the Margazhi month has on the human system – it pulls you from the base.

萨古鲁:我们现在处在一年中对走在灵性修行道路上的人来说非常重要的时间。泰米尔日历中的Margazhi月从12月16日开始。一年中的这个时候,地球与太阳距离最近。这本应是北半球最热的月份,但事实上却是最冷的时候,因为地球的北面背对着太阳。这样的近距离形成了地球和太阳间的一种角度,使得太阳光线在到达地球时漫射开来。如果离得稍远一些,太阳本可以更多照射到地球。但就太阳对地球的重力影响而言,这个时候是最强的。2017年1月2日是地球与太阳距离最近的日子,所以这时候太阳对地球的引力拉扯最大。这就是Margazhi月对人体系统的影响——它从基底拉扯你。

Margazhi is a time to bring balance and stability to the system. There are practices in the yogic system which have been transmitted into the culture in many different ways. This is a time when men will do what generally women are supposed to do, and vice versa. In Tamil Nadu, men will go on nagarasankeertan; they will sing and practice devotion – which are largely considered feminine. Geometry and masculinity are very directly connected. The feminine always pays maximum significance to an object’s color and outer form. The masculine always sees the geometric base first. In this month, women practice geometry – not on paper, but in front of their homes, drawing geometrical figures or kolams.

Margazhi月是为系统带来平衡和稳定的时节。瑜伽系统中有些练习以多种方式传播到这个文化之中。这时候,男人会做一些通常看来应该女人去做的事,女人会做一些通常看来应该男人去做的事。在泰米尔纳德邦,男人会做nagarasankeertan,他们会歌唱,进行奉爱练习等——这在多数人看来是阴性相关的。几何学与男性气质直接相关,而女性通常非常注重一个物体的色彩和外部形式。男性则通常会首先看到事物的几何基础。而这个月,女性会练习几何——不是在纸上,而是在家门口,画几何图案(kolam)。


Because of a general pull downward, the muladhara (the foundation chakra), and thus the preservative nature of life, become dominant. All life in the northern hemisphere is at its minimum right now. If you plant a seed, the growth will be slowest at this time, and it will not sprout very well. Since the growth is held back by a certain inertia in the life force, this is a time the body can recoup and preserve itself well. Recognizing this, it is still maintained that there are never any marriages in Tamil Nadu during Margazhi. This is not a time for conception. Even grihastas, or householders, practice brahmacharya for this period.

由于太阳引力的整体下拉,海底轮(最基础的脉轮)以及生命的自我保存的天性,变得占主导性。北半球所有的生命现在都处在最低状态。如果你种下一棵种子,这时候种子的成长最缓慢,不会很好地发芽。因为成长被某种惰性力量抑制,这时候身体能很好地修复和保存。由于认识到这点,在泰米尔纳德邦,Margazhi月期间从来没有婚嫁,至今仍是如此。这不是孕育的时候。甚至是Grihastas这种过着家庭生活的瑜伽士,在这个时期也进行禁欲苦行。


This is also a good time particularly for those suffering from psychological imbalances because the sun’s energy is pulling downward, and they can stabilize themselves. In the yogic system, if there is a psychological imbalance, it is always seen as water element going out of control. If you have a tank full of water and shake it, it will slosh. The water element causes various levels of imbalance in a person if the right kind of things are not done with it. Traditionally, in this month, there are various practices to be in touch with water. Generally, people don’t want to miss the brahma muhurtam (3:40am, a conducive time for spiritual sadhana). One of the simplest things people do is go into temple ponds at 3:40am to take a dip. 

这个时期对那些心理不平衡的人尤其有益,因为太阳能量在向下拉扯,他们能利用此来稳定自己。在瑜伽系统中,如果存在心理失衡,通常都被认为是由于水元素失控。如果你摇晃一个装满了水的箱子,里面的水会开始摇荡。如果没有正确对待水元素,它会在一个人内在引起各种程度的失衡。传统上,在这个月里,有各种关于水元素的练习。通常,人们都不会想错过brahma muhurtam(凌晨3:40,这时候对灵性修行非常有益)。人们做的最简单的一件事情,就是在凌晨3:40去寺庙的圣池里浸泡一下身体。

 

The Margazhi brings a natural sense of stability into the system. There are any number of spiritual seekers who are constantly one step forward, one step backward. This is happening to too many people because there is not enough sadhana towards stabilizing themselves. If you are pulled upward and you are not stable within yourself, it will lead to imbalances. This month is used for stability and the next month, the Thai, is used for mobility. If you have created enough stability within you, only then would you dare to be mobile. This is a time to create balance and stability.

Margazhi月为系统内在带来一种自然的稳定感。有很多灵性修行者,始终在前进一步,又倒退一步的状态。很多会这样,因为他们没有做足够的灵性练习来稳定自己。如果你被往上拉起,而你内在不稳定,就会导致不平衡。这个月就是用来实现稳定,下个月是Thai月,则是用来实现流动。你只有在自己内在创造了足够的稳定性,才敢流动起来。这个时候,是创造平衡和稳定性的时候。

爱与恩典

萨古鲁
