In the Gita, Shree Krishna says that among the months I am Margasirsha.Is there a scientific reason?
It is plausible. But not entirely true.In the Gita, Shree Krishna says that among the months I am Margasirsha.
Most probably the month is conducive for spiritual activities.
Its usually around November -December( which is late autumn..autumn ends on winter solstice.
The meaning of
Margasirsha ..Marga( path), sirsha( top most, vertex).
If we observe the nature of autumn, the trees start to shed their leaves, then in the Northern Hemisphere animals sense winter is approaching..the prepare to store food and some go into hibernation.
It looks as if nature gets ready to sing a silent tune of non attachment in preparation to go into a state of Samadhi, to shed all the leaves of desire and prepare for a state of being dormant which seems bare to the world but full of potential to re-emerge in Spring.
Going by this it does seem the human too should sense that nature wants us to slow down in this month and experience the samadhi like state hence we focus on spirituality in this month.
What I wrote is my personal observation.
I have stopped looking at books for answers because sometimes knowledge is out in the open, we could sense it by being in tune in nature.
Science is actually an experience but sadly we mostly know it as intellectualization.
Fair enough...but I dont really have the map of ancient India when the world was a big mass of land and how high was it up in the Northern Hemisphere..so no idea what was the temperature back then and how significant Autumn was.It is plausible. But not entirely true.
If it was true it should valid all over the universe. People marry in that month all over the world, so there is no basis for that. In Tamil Nadu, the winter is non-existent, or very mild so again that postulation has no basis.
Marriage is (I suppose) auspicious so why can it be not performed in Margai month. Krishna in Geeta said Margai is auspicious, he did not say you cannot marry in that month. So the reference to Krishna in this context is red herring (misleading).
