Please join us to celebrate the midpoint between the March equinox and the June solstice. The livestream event at https://youtu.be/Wh2dKQZ0IEg will feature a guided meditation, followed by a brief conversation about the Novasutras movement (agaya & ubuntu, our plans, values, and ambitions, and how you can participate).
The astronomical cross-quarter moment is Saturday May 5th, 2018 at 13:13 UTC. (See archaeoastronomy.com to learn more.)
Join us on our YouTube Livestream on 5 May 2018 at 6am PDT (or meditate for peace and loving-kindness on your own through 13:13 UTC / 06:132 PDT ) to celebrate the astronomical ‘cross-quarter’ as a global event.
At 13:13 UTC on 5 May 2018, the sun will be directly overhead at at Latitude: 16° 20′ North, Longitude: 18° 50′ West. This is in the Atlantic, between the west coast of Africa (near the border of Mauritania and Senegal) and the Cape Verde islands. At that time, you are invited to face toward the sun, and meditate on agaya and ubuntu, so that people all around the world will focus their attention and wishes for global loving-kindness at the same time.
In the northern hemisphere this is the Spring-Summer Cross Quarter (associated with Beltane, often celebrated May 1st). It is also near Vesak Day, the day for celebration of the Buddha, which is usually coordinated with the full moon in May.
