Search and fulfilment
I am always on search for eternal bliss.
I am restless and abundant like the flow of Soma, Divine nectar.
I bless you with the poetic power to weave a story, compose and use your imagination.
I am teaching you how to extract pure essence from the ever-restless ocean of sensory impressions.
I am inspiring you to be more focused in your search and give your attention only to that, which truly fulfils your soul.
The true essence of life is the Divine Soul, the atma pervading the whole universe. The Supreme Self is “the taste of the water, the fragrance of the earth, the sound in the ether, the heat of the fire and the light of the Sun and the Moon”, as proclaims Lord Krishna in Bhagavad Gita. It is the unique quality and the true essence of everything, what is the highest and best in all things.”
Mrigashira nakshatra, with head of a deer as its symbol (mrigashira literally means “head of a deer”) and Soma, the fickle Moon, as its deity, is always on search. Airy in nature, with two of its padas in earthly Taurus and two other padas in Gemini, it is always somewhere between heaven and earth – which can give birth to indecisiveness, too. Moon in this nakshatra gives birth to a very swift, active mind and whenever Moon is transiting this lunar mansion our mind can become overly active, distracted and ungrounded, doing too many things at the same time and searching for its fulfilment in too many places simultaneously. This energy can help us, though, in travelling, going on adventure or researching, if we channel it wisely.
