Daily Draw - Sanctity

 Card: Sanctity

Message: "Through offering, even the most mundane problem can become a sacrament."

Our card today reminds us that not everything needs to be a grandiose event when we're working towards the right path. We see Hanuman, the monkey god seated in the lotus position, his hands in the Bhairava Mudra with with Rama and Sita watching from above. Hanuman is described as the "son of Pawan", the Hindu god for wind, Hanuman is known for his extraordinary daring feats, strength and loyalty. He is love, compassion, devotion, strength and intelligence. The Bhairava Mudra is also called
Shiva or Shakit mudra, it is said to bring strength and power to the forefront.
A sacrament is a familiar word used across cultures. For some it means a gift or offering. Others it is a sacrificed or dedication to a deity. Sacraments are rites in which Hindus reaffirm their connection to the Divine. The Sanskrit word ​samskāra ​ means “groove in the mind,” or colloquially, “upbringing,” and indicates rituals and ceremonies intended to leave deep spiritual impressions on the individual's conscience.

So what is our card telling us. We're reminded here that even things that we see as day to day tasks can become something of an offering. I am reminded of Zen Master Hahn who believed that the simple act of washing dishes or having tea is an opportunity to connect to the energy of all. So take this message of the Sanctity card today and welcome the mindful mundane daily activities that can help guide us to enlightenment. The simple, the meaningful offerings of the one will open the door to nirvana.
How does this connect to you today? Maybe taking a moment to sit with the breath and listen to the world around you is the answer you seek.
