Until a few centuries ago, the New Year always began in March, when the Sun moves to the first point of Aries. However, someone in power decided to celebrate January 1 as the New Year. Although he announced it as the New Year, people would not follow it. They continued celebrating March end – April 1, as New Year day. So, to stop people from celebrating New Year on April 1, he called it April fool’s day.

直到几个世纪前, 新年都是始于3月,在太阳移动到白羊座的第一点。 然而, 当权者决定把1月1日定为新年。 虽然他宣布将其定为新年, 人们却不跟随他,而继续的在3月底至4月一日庆祝新年。因此, 为了要阻止人们在4月1日庆祝新年, 他把它称为愚人节。

Now, let us see the meanings of the months.

现在, 让我们看看月份的含义。

Fagun means the fag end, last; hence, Feb is the last month. March means to start new, and go ahead (the first month of the New Year). August is shashtathe sixth month.

FAGUN 表示根尾, 最后。 因此, 2月份是最后一个月。 3月份意思是从新开始, 然后继续 ( 新年的第一个月)。  8月份是 SHASHTA, 第六个月。

Ambar means sky; Sapt means seven, Sapt ambar, September means seventh sky. October is ashtaeighth sky. November, Nav (nine) ambar, means ninth sky. December, Dash (ten) ambar, means tenth sky, or tenth month.

AMBAR 意思是天空; SAPT 意思是七, SAPT AMBAR,  9 月份意思是第七天空。

10月份是ASHTA, 第八天空, 11月份, NAV ( 九) AMBAR , 意即第九天空。

12月份 DASH ( 十) AMBAR, 意思是第十天空, 或者第十个月份

January is the eleventh month, and February is the twelfth month. This is how the calendar was in the very beginning. The Indian, Iranian, Afghani, and Egyptian calendars, all correspond to this system. Even the Chinese New Year starts towards the end of February, beginning of March.

1月份是第十一个月, 2月份是第十二个月。日历是这样开始的。 印度, 伊朗,阿富汗,及埃的日历,都遵循此系统。 甚至华人新年也从二月底, 即三月初开始。

The dates, days and months, were all designed according to the Solar or Lunar calendar. In the Solar calendar, like the English calendar, there is a leap day. And in the Lunar calendar, there is an extra month, a leap month, that comes every 4 years.

日期, 天数及月份, 都是根据阳历或农历设计的。在阳历中,像英文日历一样,有个闰日。 而在农历里, 每4年会有额外多出一个月份。 一个闰月。

This year(2016), when the moon moves in to the first point of Aries  is the Lunar New Year. When the sun moves in to the first point of Aries is the Solar New Year.

今年(2016), 当月亮进入白羊座的第一点即是农历新年。 当太阳移入白羊座的第一点是阳历新年。

Did you know your breath coordinates with the movement of the sun and the moon?

你是否知道, 你的呼吸是和太阳及月亮的运行相连接的呢?

This is a very beautiful science. How your breath moves on the first day of the Lunar month, is very different from the way it moves on the first day of the Solar month. You will see your breath corresponds to that; right nostril (Surya or sun naadi) and left nostril (Chandra or moon naadi), it will tell you. So, the macrocosm and the microcosm are connected in an amazing way.

这是一个非常美丽的科学。农历月第一天的呼吸和阳历第一天的呼吸是不同的。 你会看到与之对应的呼吸 :  右鼻孔(太阳或阳脉) 和左鼻孔 (月亮或月脉),它会告诉你。所以,宏观宇宙与微观宇宙以如此神奇的方式相连。
