Happy Pongal!

Pongal is a harvest festival dedicated to the Sun. The day marks the start of the sun’s six month long journey northwards (the Uttaraayanam). This also corresponds to the Indic solstice when the sun purportedly enters the 10th house of the Indian zodiac Makara or Capricorn. Pongal is a four days long harvest festival celebrated in Tamil Nadu.

All Yoga is in its nature a new birth; it is a birth out of the ordinary, the mentalised material life of man into a higher spiritual consciousness and greater and diviner being.
