The Mystical Month of March

By Vedic Astro-Palmist Guylaine Vallée


March is a beautiful month as it holds a lot of hope with the end of winter and the return of Spring. But in addition to a shift in season, March is a mystical month full of profound events supercharged with spiritual energy. It begins on March 7th with the Mahasamadhi of Paramahansa Yogananda followed with Shivaratri, the day of veneration for Lord Shiva, which this year falls on the 8th, and the Mahasamadhi of Sri Yukteswar on the 9th. On the 17th we celebrate the Day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, and the 19th marks the feast day of St. Joseph, patron of workers and the promise of a peaceful death.

Then on Good Friday, March 29th, there is the Mahasamadhi of Jesus, followed by the celebration of His resurrection on Easter Sunday, which this year falls on March 31st.

Mahasamadhi is when a God‑illumined master makes a conscious exit from the body at the time of physical death. What is so auspicious about this month is we can all benefit from these powerful moments. Paramahansa explains that whenever a Great One leaves the planet through Mahasamadhi, he (or she) creates a spiritual portal we all can access and through which we can raise our consciousness and feel tremendous peace, bliss and joy, especially on that day.

So, while experiencing transcendent feelings of joy may seem like a pipe dream or something only saints enjoy, we can all experience this profound state of peace in this lifetime through deep and dedicated meditation. So, take advantage of these mystical March portals by setting aside some quiet time to meditate.

Of course, when you first sit down to meditate your mind runs wild in all directions. You think it is impossible to go deep. But if you sit still and persist long enough, you will travel inward and begin to feel that wonderful silence of peace in which we find great happiness beyond any of the worries of the world.

This deeply rewarding process can be challenging at first, which is why Ghanshyam always suggested his clients begin by reading Paramahansa’s Autobiography of a Yogi, and then to follow up by studying Paramahansa’s meditation techniques that are available through the Self-Realization Fellowship in California. Paramahansa founded the SRF nearly a century ago. We encourage you to explore what the SRF lessons have  to offer by clicking here.

If you would like to meet an SRF monk, several will be visiting Montreal in mid-April. For more information, contact Michel at the Montreal SRF center by email: [email protected], or by phone at 438-225-7122.
