Sankranti bestows immense joy on animals and birds, nature and everyone, right from a farmer to the king. Sankranti marks the beginning of the sacred time of Uttarayana (sun’s movement toward North). Names may vary, but this festival is celebrated joyously by one and all irrespective of state, religion and nationality. You too should welcome the arrival of the bounteous month of Pushya and celebrate Sankranti in its true spirit by manifesting your inner joy and sharing it with others. The word kranti means change. It signiﬁes a change from misery to happiness, from restlessness to peace and from pain to pleasure. Happiness cannot be purchased in a market nor can it be acquired by worldly means. It should manifest from within. “Start the day with Love, ﬁll the day with Love, end the day with Love – this is the way to God.” If you practice this, you will always remain happy and not be disturbed by sorrows and difﬁculties.
