March signals the revolution of spring . . . 'in like a lion, out like a lamb'. . . A lamb that brings the spring equinox on March 20. Begin your annual #KarmaCleanse with Dana Karma Calendar in Aquamarine. By mid-April your karma will be fresh and clean and ready to bloom with spring madness!
Each Karma Calendar uses the inspiration of its guru gemstone to represent one of the six paramitas. The Dana Karma Calendar with an aquamarine guru bead is representative of the paramita transcendental generosity.
The northern hemisphere vernal equinox marks the sun moving across the celestial equator from south to north. In our culture, we take this early sign of spring as a chance to clean up our space, material and spiritual. We wash down our homes and cars and closets, and we take stock of the layers we've accumulated over the winter, both literal and figurative. For many, spring is the perfect time to reassess habits we've picked up in spite of our best (New Year's) intentions.
Experts generally agree, it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. Often it is practically impossible to break a "bad" habit, unless we replace it with a new "good" one. This is how Karma Calendar works: daily tasks focused on Good Karma generates measurable results over time. Most of us fall short of our resolutions not because we cannot accomplish them once, but because we fail to accomplish them consistently.
By completing a Karma Calendar journey over the course of 27 days, we find the inspiration and confidence to maintain our new daily practice. And those times when we find ourselves falling short, with the proper inspiration we will always #BeginAgain. This is the practice. This is life.
