Sankranthi marks the movement of the Sun from the southern horizon to
the northern horizon. This northward movement of the Sun has immense
spiritual significance. The north is symbolised by Himaachala. Hima
means snow. It is pure, untainted and soothingly cool. All these endow
it with the quality of Prashanthi (perfect peace). Achala means that
which is steady and unshakeable. Himaachala does not refer to the
physical Himalayan mountains. It represents that which is cool,
peaceful and steady. From this day the Sun is said to move towards such
a state. The Sun symbolises the vision of man. The northward movement
of the Sun is a call to human beings to turn their vision towards that
which is cool, peaceful and unchanging, i.e. towards the divinity
.. That was a thought.
