Ammachi satsang: While many will be out trying to get a glimpse of the eclipse, we are going to follow the Vedic Rishi's recommendation to use this special time that will amplify the power of our spiritual practices. Our Sankalpa will be for peace in the world, and Amma has explained that when we pray and meditate in a group -- the effect increases exponentially.

Fear is the loss of Unity, thinking we are separate from what happens in the world. Light is sucked out, blocked. This is for the ignorant. If "infinity is at every point," there is pure being everywhere, no shadows at all. You are trading in illusions. The Indian subcontinent has its own cultural superstitions. There are enough superstitions here, why import more of them? srijau responding: this is "know-it-all" know nothing empty rhetoric. you live and operate in the world of duality. a watch is a superstition according to a person who can't understand it by your verbalization.

Recommendations from the Maharishi Jyotish Council 1. It’s recommended to not begin important projects or special events on this day, as Nature will not be as supportive. The most life-supporting activities recommended during an eclipse are those which bring the attention inward. 2. It’s better to stay inside during the time that the eclipse is visible where you are. You can find out when that is by visiting www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/ http://click.icptrack.com/icp/relay.php?r=51714648&msgid=1654867&act=79XZ&c=329287&destination=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.timeanddate.com%2Feclipse%2F and entering your city and state. In Fairfield, it is from 11:45 am to 2:37 pm. 3. According to the knowledge of Maharishi Jyotish, the planet Surya (Sun) is cosmically connected to digestive fire and Chandra (Moon) to the assimilation of food. So it is recommended to not take food during the approximately 3-hour period from start to finish of the solar eclipse. Thank you to the Heaths, Frieders, and Isquiths in the USA Maharishi Jyotish Offices for all of their guidance. With best wishes, Jai Guru Dev
