Then address the following prayer to Lord Markandeya:
मार्कण्डेय महाभाग,सप्तकल्पा जीवितह
चिरन्जीवी यथा त्वं,लाथा मे भ्रातारं कुरुः
Markandeya Mahabhaga,Saptakalpa Jeevitaha
Chiranjivi Yathaa tvam tathaa me Bhraataaram Kuruhu.
Meaning: O Lord Markandeya, You are most fortunate and are Chiranjeevi (immortal), who will live for the duration of seven Kalpa, Please grant my brother a life as long as yours by virtue of being a Chiranjeevi.
Each year, I try and post on this day to share my thoughts on this day. As we believe in Yoga, humans are considered the smartest and most emotional of living beings not to mention the smartest. It would be so nice if we used those gifts for those around us. We all truly believe that Life must be full of love, harmony, empathy, sacrifice and radiating positive energy. The modern businesses and commercial establishments have a great day with their candy and flower and expensive jewelry sales. Here are some suggestions I follow myself. I would take a step back, take a breather and just think for a minute.
Take a different approach and try and may be make a healthy snack, breakfast or a healthy soup and simple lunch /dinner.
Valentine’s day Pratibha Jani
Can we try and make some one who truly does not have much in this world instead of just trying to impress just one person in our life, can we try and may be read a book to a child or buy a small book for a child and help him her read, or take someone out for a walk
or just sit and talk with them spend some time just to show you care and that you are not too busy to sit and have a cup of tea or just watch the sunset with some one special . May be an elderly member of the family, maybe a servant in the house, maybe someone who lives alone and needs company. Someone who does not get to do it as often and really needs it.
Let me know if it works for you. It always does for me. Bring a real valentine’s day into your loved one’s lives. (The real happiness that they will feel from the bottom of their heart) will be your true valentine. Make them all your special someone on Valentine’s day. Include your parents, brothers,sisters,friends all as part of your special valentine’s day as true love, harmony,belongs to all.
Have a happy Valentine’s day everyone. Remember those who are usually forgotten.!!!! Make your day truly special.
