“Om poorna-madah poorna-midam
Poornaat poorna mudachyate
Poornasya poorna maadaya
Poorna mevaa vashishyate
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti-hi”
Om ! That (Brahman) is infinite, and this (universe) is infinite. The infinite proceeds from the infinite. (Then) taking the infinitude of the infinite (universe),
It remains as the infinite (Brahman) alone.
Om ! Peace ! Peace ! Peace!

What is a moon day?
A Moon Day is a day on which there is a new or full moon. No Mysore classes are held on these days, based on a tradition in India that it is inauspicious to do so.
Moon Day Schedule in Finland:
6 APRIL, Thursday - Full
20 APRIL, Thursday - New
5 MAY, Friday - Full
19 MAY, Friday - New
4 JUNE, Sunday - Full
18 JUNE, Sunday - New
Like all things of a watery nature (human beings are about 70% water), we are affected by the phases of the moon. The phases of the moon are determined by the moon’s relative position to the sun. Full moons occur when they are in opposition and new moons when they are in conjunction. Both sun and moon exert a gravitational pull on the earth. Their relative positions create different energetic experiences that can be compared to the breath cycle. The full moon energy corresponds to the end of the inhalation when the force of prana is greatest. This is an expansive, upward moving force that makes us feel energetic and emotional, but not well grounded. The Upanishads state that the main prana lives in the head. During the full moon we tend to be more headstrong.
The new moon energy corresponds to the end of the exhalation when the force of apana is greatest. Apana is a contracting, downward moving force that makes us feel calm and grounded, but dense and disinclined towards physical exertion.
The Farmers Almanac recommends planting seeds at the new moon when the rooting force is strongest and transplanting at the full moon when the flowering force is strongest.
Practicing Ashtanga Yoga over time makes us more attuned to natural cycles. Observing moon days is one way to recognize and honor the rhythms of nature so we can live in greater harmony with it.
