Buddha’s Grace and Moony Madness
In this Spot, Sadhguru shares a recording of him chanting “Buddham Sharanam Gachhami” during the Buddha Purnima darshan at the Isha Institute of Inner-sciences in Tennessee a few days ago. In his new poem “Moon,” Sadhguru offers an almost satirical view on Earth’s satellite and its impact, particularly on womankind. “After a day of deception / the Moony Madness relaunches itself / for our Birth.”
Your varying geometry a cause
of concern, as the oceans slosh
and humans of the menstrual sort
grapple with Passion and manic Moods.
As if desperate to find the missing
form of that day and longing for
your fullness. After a day of deception
the Moony Madness relaunches itself
for our Birth.
In this recording from Buddha Purnima 2018, Sadhguru chants “Buddham Sharanam Gachhami.” Sadhguru says that all three aspects mentioned in the chant are equally important on the path: the Buddha – the enlightened one; the Dhamma – the method he gave; and the Sangha – all the people who are seeking. Sadhguru says, “If you are among seekers, you become a seeker.”
