Vedic culture gives a lot of importance to exact days and times. But since most people are not familiar with the Panchang (Vedic calendar which gives lots of valuable information) and many people do not even understand what all the information-details really mean… so, from a practical stand point, read on to see how we can best set our plans in action to attain success and victory in our endeavors!
So, as we saw in the last post, trying to make new year resolutions typically fails and our plans fall thru within a few weeks.
The better approach is that we utilize the holiday times to reflect on our wants and desires, wishes and goals.
It is very interesting to note that even though most people will say “I want to be rich”, “I want to be successful” and so on… most folks do not have the required clarity around what “rich” or “success” truly means to them.
Now, coming back to our topic… we should utilize the time during the holidays to mull over and reflect on our wants and wishes. Then starting with the new year, we should start putting proper structure around our desires.
We should lay down concrete plans which answer questions like how we can reach our goals. What are possible obstacles and how can be best tackle them!
Now, don’t get worried or stat sweating the fact, that you cannot read panchang or what if you are doing the work at a “wrong time”.
Frankly, till you start your plans after the Makar Sankranti, which is when Sun enters the sign of Capricorn as per the sidereal zodiac and most importantly- Sun starts its northward trek; this is the most important part. See the special note below about Sidereal zodiac.
Since it is a festival celebration in most parts of India, called by various names like Sankranti festival, Lodhi and so on… After the Sankranti days, give yourself another four to five days and you should get your special time period of 3-4 days… (that is how I said about considering Jan 19- thru 23 ish).
This way, you utilize the cosmic energies in your favor. We all know that if you were to sow seeds in the heart of winter, they are all surely going to rot and die!! To even get a fair chance to grow to fruition, it is important to plant the seeds at a proper time… ofcourse not to mention, take proper care, provide proper nutrition and so on…
In our case- when we start work on our action plan is the first part. Then we need to ensure that we are following a proper structure and diligently working on our plans, obtaining any required assets, competencies and so on to finally obtain our objective, our goal!
The added light from Sun’s northward trek, called Uttarayana will help you in obtaining all the positive energies that you require to work on your goals and ambitions.
This in turn will at least provide you with a suitable environment to achieve success. Will you get it or not- that would depend on many other factors such as your abilities, your efforts, your karmas and so on… more on that in another post.
