Decoding Makar Sankranti


The science of Yog is a science of experience, the vedic seer had experienced the shakti of sun and so gave us the relevance of Makar Sankranti. Makar Sankranti marks the day when sun appears to enter the zodiac of makar (Capricorn). Traditionally, the day coincided with the northward movement of sun having reached its southern most point, the phenomenon known as uttarayan in Vedic philosophy. According to Vedic tradition the six months of uttarayan are a single day of the gods; the six months of dakshinayan are a single night of the gods..writes Yogi Ashwini Ji of Dhyan Ashram.
