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.”
 
Buddha’s Grace and Moony Madness
 
 
 

Moon

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.

 

Love & Grace
 

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.”
