Living Daily – Sacred Day of Sunnadi or Sun Day

20 Moura/March 11
Sunnadi/Sunday

Dear Devotees,

Recently, we spoke about Seasonal Living. Within Janite culture, there is also the practice of Daily Living.

Daily Living in Janite culture begins with a focus on the meaning of the Sacred Symbol and the ruling Jana of the day along with Her Stream of Virtues.

The Symbol of the Sun represents Dea Madria, Our Celestial Mother, She Who is the Supernal Sun. She Who is Light. She Who is Brightness. The ruling Jana of the day, Sai Raya Theia, is the Jana or Gateway of the Illumination which flows from this Brightness. She is a Living Stream of the outpouring of the Celestial Mother, shining and glowing in Her orange robes, bringing us Joy and teaching us Benevolence.

On Sunnadi, we may recite the mantra rosary of Sai Raya Theia. Janati rosary

O, Sai Raya Theia, Lamp of Illumination, Generosity, and Benevolence, be with us.

We may also simply think about the Jana of the day and certainly pray to Her in our own words and ask Her to be with us and to guide us throughout the day.

We can also think about which of Her three virtues we wish to express in our lives that day and ask Her help in that endeavor. Illuminating in being informed relevant to our Soul Path and a joyous light filled presence on earth; Generosity in thought, word and action and Benevolence which is willing to do good for and to others.

And we may always express our gratitude to the ruling Jana during our Evensong prayers.

We might choose to light a candle or incense for Her and wear just a little something of Her color to remind us of Her throughout the day. For Sai Raya Theia, this could be an orange colored gemstone pendant or other piece of jewelry, a hair ornament, a piece of clothing, a pen, badge, scarf, hat or whatever you may have.

There are many different ways to honor the Jana of the Day.  The key point to Daily Living, specially during this time of Moura, is the furthering and flowering of the 21 Virtues in our lives both for the benefit of others and for the growth and maturity of our own souls. And in this, the Janati will assist us.

Let us Bless The Holy One,
Blessed is She.

Let us thank the Seven Janae of Power.
Thanks be to the Seven Janae.
