In India, the full moon of the month of Ashada (July-August) is honored as the most auspicious and important of the entire year. This moon’s luminous brilliance and perfect form are seen as expressions of the Guru’s gift of grace and the attainment of Self-realization. Siddha Yogis focus on the practice of Dakshina* during this holiday.
*Dakshina – A core Siddha Yoga practice of making monetary offerings to the Guru. In the practice of dakshina, the student honors the Guru, the source of grace and the highest knowledge, through giving. Siddha Yogis practice dakshina with regularity and discipline as part of their sadhana and offer it without specifying its use or expecting personal gain.
