The Winter Solstice is a very special day because during dark times like this, the sun is reborn to bring light to the world. The darkness leading up to this time is dreadful, especially for those with SAD, seasonal affective disorder. The Winter Solstice is a wondrous occasion, the true significance of this time of year. Yes, the Sun of God is divine and begins its yearly assent to heaven, aided by twelve disciples. They have different names in different places, but here they are January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, and December. Among the disciples are a number of women, a key feature lacking in many of the earthly religions.
One earthly manmade religion in particular has subverted the yearly event and molded it into a fictitious event that unfortunately is widely celebrated. In fact, it is the most popular religion upon the earth today. It is hard to believe but the religion claims a man was born a god a couple thousand years ago of an earthly mother without an earthly father, but such is impossible. As I look around the three worlds, I can clearly see that all breathing, crying creatures are born of a mother and father. Creatures of the water world, the land, and those of the air have parents, and even earthly beings that have attained the heavenly state were born of a mother and father.
Widely considered the most significant teaching of the so-called godman is “the Sermon on the Mount.” I have read it and it does not even present the moral teaching of heaven, with nothing about the critical meditations. To become a master of the outer and inner teaching is the only way to attain the heavenly state, so it is unfortunate that such is missing from the sermon. Therefore, those who follow that religion will die upon the earth to be born again on the earth, but in which of the three worlds is not known. People are born upon the earth with the freedom to believe whatever, and there are many popular religions upon the earth today, but unfortunately, not one guides a person on the path to heaven.
The moral teaching of heaven is not difficult to understand. I present it often enough, but here it is again. Compassion for all breathing creatures that cry is the Holy Way. Be a peaceful and caring person. Consume a vegetarian diet, and enjoy watching and listening to the creatures of the land, water, and air, and if one is suffering, care for them. Do not harm any creature. It does not matter is they have two feet, four feet, or no feet and speak in a language you do not understand, treat them kindly, so all can enjoy the glorious sunlight.
Here is a verse from the Veda you might not have heard.
