know that it is mine

1 dec 2008, amritpauri
when i heard about the jupiter, venus and the crescent moon in san ramon, i had a small desire to see that. and lo! today it was seen above the amritapuri ashram buildings. the venus on the left the jupiter on the right and the crescent moon below. it was like a smiley face in the messenger! it was soooo beautiful. the sky was cloudy, the light was too low, i could not watch too long, could not get a good pic, still sharing what i got. enjoy.

wait .. where is amma? she was there in san ramon.

look she was also here.

“yadaditya gatam tejo jagat bhasayatekhilam
yaschandramsi yaschagnow tat tejo viddhi mamakam” says krishna in bhagavd gita ch 15-12.
the splendor that is there in the sun, moon, fire and all that objects illuminating the whole world know that it is mine.



[bit of science: the moon is the brightest, closest and smallest of the three and is 252,000 miles away from the earth. venus, the second brightest, closest and smallest, is 94 million miles away. and big jupiter is 540 million miles away.]
