I read on a post in Wellsphere about people meditating on a full moon night. The idea intrigued me so I decided to do some research to figure out if there was any scientific reason that explained why it might be more effective to meditate on a full moon night.Unfortunately, I was not able to find anything concrete.But a lot of people found it to be an overwhelming experience.Maybe it is because of the beauty of the moon and the thought of meditating in the night is itself a fascinating idea.I will definitely try this time around.Has anyone experienced this before?
The moon has a strong influence on the huge oceans, whose tides rise and fall according to the lunar cycles. In the same way the moon has a sway on the human body, which is made-up of 60 per cent of fluids. The moon has also a power on the mind. Mind is connected with the moon and full moon is a symbol of completion and pinnacle of celebration. Among the 12-13 full moons in a year the vaishakha full moon is dedicated to Buddha (his birth and enlightenment), jyeshtha full moon to mother earth and the aashadha full moon is dedicated to the memory of masters. This is Guru-poornima. Full moon meditation is best done after moon rise, directly or indirectly one should feel the moonlight falling on themselves, on your face, let your mind absorbs the light of the full moon. - H. H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Founder, The Art Of Living Foundation. Meditating in a Group is highly beneficial and even more so on Full Moon nights. The mind and the moon are connected, and on full moon days the mind is very light. Our full moon meditations are free and open to all. Organized by Art of Living. http://www.artoflivingSFBA.org/fullmoon.html I have also read that there is heightened actiivty of the mind on the full moon day. It is also possible to awaken thoughts about Spirituality that lie inert in the sub-conscious mind of a spiritually inclined person by taking advantage of the heightened mind activity and by increasing spiritual practice on a full moon day.
