Full moon day on November 14, 2016 is one of the best days to connect to higher planes of Cosmos and enter into the state of Bliss. This full moon is said to be the closest and brightest super moon of 2016, but also the largest since 1948. This is the day on which both sun and moon are in rāśi cusps (rāśi refers to an astrological house; there are twelve rāśi-s corresponding to twelve calendar months). In this situation, both sun and moon are exactly posited opposite to each other, which signifies full moon day or paurṇamāsya. This happens at 13.52 hours GMT on November 14, 2016 (IST 19.22 hours)

The other way of looking at this auspicious day is that both iḍa and piṅgala (iḍa represents moon and piṅgala represents sun) are equally balanced on all full moon days. When these two nāḍi-s are perfectly balanced, prāṇa begins to ascend through suṣumna, the spinal cord. This is explained in detail in part 10 of Kuṇḍalinī meditation series. On this ensuing full moon day, if meditation is done at 13.52 hrs GMT (IST 19.22 hours), yoga of kālapuruṣa (personification of time; Śiva) can be felt in one’s breath due to perfect balancing of two important nāḍi-s, iḍa and piṅgala.  A great scholar explained this as “Yoga and Jñāna leave their signatures on breath” at this time.

Therefore, to experience Bliss, we have to meditate at this time, November 14, 2016 13.52 hours GMT.   Meditation should commence ten minutes before this time and can be completed after ten minutes of this time. This time should be in the midpoint of duration of meditation. For example, if meditation is planned for twenty minutes, then we should commence meditation at 13.42 hours GMT and should end at 14.02 GMT. In India, meditation can be commenced at 19.12 hrs and can be completed around 19.32 hrs.
