The rituals of Spring hold the same importance in yoga and meditation as they do in all religions. They make space for all the positives to flow in. The dormant gestation of winter ends. The perfect balance of Spring is associated with the birth of the golden egg of light and life, hiranyagarbh.
Spring and Fall equinoxes are when Earth is in a state of balance. Day and night are equal, light and darkness are balanced. Heat and cold are equipoised. It is this state of equilibrium that gives birth to evolution.
For yogis, it is a perfect time to begin a new practice, to renew the commitment to a spiritual growth. We clean our homes, our bodies, our minds, and revitalize our energy levels. Clutter and unnecessary baggage is discarded at all levels to clear space for positive energy to flow in.
