The Divine Light for Inner Transformation

Karthigai Deepam: Nov 25th, 2015 (IST)

Powerful Full Moon to Experience the Light of Divine Consciousness

Burn Your Karmic Sufferings and Experience Inner Transformation

Lord Arunachala

Karthigai Deepam is a powerful time to experience the light of divine consciousness. The auspicious combination of the Full Moon in the month of Karthigai (November – December) and Pleiadian star Krittika allows the light of higher consciousness to enter into the world.

On this day, Arunachala, the Mountain of Light (fire), which is said to represent the divine being Shiva in his form as the element of Fire, comes alive and radiates a unique energy that enables you to move from human intelligence to divine intelligence.

Furthermore, Krittika (Karthigai) is the birth star associated with Muruga, the warrior archetype of infinite wisdom, and therefore Karthigai Deepam is one of the blessed times of the year when the divine energies can burn your karmic sufferings and help you experience inner transformation.

Karthigai Deepam 2015 – Astrological Significance

Karthigai Deepam

Planetary positions on Karthigai Deepam, November 25th (IST), support the fiery nature of Shiva and Muruga energies. On this day, the Moon will be in the fiery sign Aries. Jupiter, the planet supporting spiritual expansion, aspects the fiery signs Aries (9th House), Sagittarius (5th House) and Leo (1st House, where Jupiter is positioned).

Houses 1, 5 and 9 in astrology signify self-improvement, luck in this lifetime, and luck from previous births.

Rituals to Shiva and Muruga on Karthigai Deepam will be powerful to invoke their blessings, annihilating negativities in the form of ego, problems relating to health, finances, ignorance, etc., and enhancing your inner light. More inner light means you have more consciousness, intelligence and energy.

Karthigai Deepam Legend

Once, Vishnu and Brahma had a conflict regarding which was the more powerful of the two. While they were fighting, Lord Shiva appeared before them in the form of a huge pillar of fire. Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma gave up their quarrelling, and decided to find the beginning and the end of the pillar.

Accordingly, Brahma assumed the form of a swan and moved upwards. Vishnu transformed himself into a boar and started digging deep into the earth. Even after searching for several years, neither of the two were able to find the ends the pillar. Finally, they realized that the pillar was none other than Lord Shiva. This bonfire symbolizes that worshipping the Eternal Archetype Shiva on this day will annihilate the three impurities, namely egoism, selfish actions and delusion.

Birth of Muruga

It is during the Karthigai month that Lord Shiva created Muruga with his divine light. Lord Shiva manifested Lord Muruga when the Devas were being oppressed by the demon Taraka. Lord Muruga is the conjoint manifestation of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Shiva’s deep spiritual exuberance was disturbed by a cherub. Parvati too was observing penance to receive the grace of Shiva. When Shiva opened his eyes, he burnt the angel. At that time, six flashes, like lightning, emerged — five from the five senses and one from the mind of Shiva. These became six babies, and the cosmic mother, Parvati, rolled them into one baby with six heads and twelve arms, thus Lord Muruga is also known as Shanmukha (6 faces). The six heads represent the six rays, or attributes: wisdom, insouciance, strength, fame, wealth and divine power.

Lord Muruga, the son of Shiva, plays a vital role in the fight for light, or consciousness. As Muruga was born out of the 3rd eye of Lord Shiva, the act itself symbolizes the birth of a higher consciousness, and Muruga represents unlimited divine wisdom.

Muruga also recited the meaning of “OM” to Shiva, thus the lamps lit on this day are in remembrance of sharing the ultimate knowledge of “OM.” The knowledge of “OM” helps in enlightenment and emancipation.

Arunachala – The Mountain of Light

Karthigai Deepam

Arunachala is the mountain of Thiruvannamalai, which is called the mountain of light (fire) and has existed in all ages in different forms. Fire symbolizes light, consciousness and intelligence, and on Karthigai Deepam a special light floods the entire earth plane with a karma-dissolving illumination. Only the sages can see this light, as it is of a different frequency than what the human eye can detect. To replicate this spiritual occasion, a huge lamp is lit at the top of the mountain.

Light is Consciousness

Light is intelligence and energy. The more inner light and energy you have, the fewer limitations there will be. Increased awareness liberates you from ego, selfishness, delusion, pain and suffering.

Eradicate the Ego

The mountain of light dissolves ego-based intelligence. Ego identity is the source of our limitations: envy, jealousy, insecurity and anger. Indeed, ego is simply one’s insecurity, but a hard one to dissolve. The mountain is reputed for its special ability to subdue even the egos of Gods.

The Greatest Act on Deepam

Spiritual merit is an inner insurance policy that brings you protection in times of need. To receive the light takes no special or rigorous meditations or chanting techniques. One can receive the divine grace of intelligence through a simple act of kindness, such as feeding a person who is starving, or donating clothes. When you donate food and clothing to those in need, it elevates your soul.

Participating in Karthigai Deepam rituals with utmost sincerity can help one attain enlightenment, thereby allowing you to experience the ultimate light that illuminates the mind, soul and intellect.

Do It Yourself (at home)

You can tune in at the time of the lighting of the Deepam on Arunachala, the Mountain of Light (fire), at 6 p.m. IST. Sit quietly, and light a ghee lamp and incense. Visualize The Mountain of Light (Fire) in your mind’s eye.

Chant this mantra:

“Arut Perum Jyoti
Arut Perum Jyoti
Tanni Perum Karune
Arut Perum Jyoti”

Make this your intention: “Please lead me from ignorance into light. Lead us all from ignorance into light. Let the food that I give on this day nourish the mind, body and soul of all those who came searching for a higher truth, a higher intelligence.”
