    Spain is a colourful country with lots of festivals. Nice slideshow clearly describing the Rocio Pilgrimage.

    The Rocío Pilgrimage is the most famous in the region, attracting nearly a million people from across Andalucia and the entire country. This is a tradition that began in the 15th century when a hunter from the village of Villamanrique discovered a statue of the Virgin Mary in a tree trunk near the Doñana park. Devotion to this particular version of the Virgin Mary was initially a local affair. However, over the centuries it became more and more widespread.

    The climax of the festival is the weekend before Pentecost Monday. In the early hours of Monday the Virgin Mary is brought out of the church so the people can see / worship her .

    Most of the festivals world over is divine which relates to God and its divine symbols. Name any country and any festivals it should have the divine relations.

    Divinity and Virginity are directly related to each other. Virginity refers to purity while divinity helps in purification process. The more pure anything will be, the more subtle it will be. The more subtle it will be, the more blissful it will be.

    Someone asked - Guruji how can we see God?. Guruji replied that you can not see God, because he is not the object of this world which we can be identified through five senses. We can not see but we can feel God who is none other than the treasure house of supreme happiness. However he is subtle. Accordingly in order to feel him, we should make ourself subtle. Only subtle can feel the subtle.

    Purification of thought, words and action is the process which will make us subtle. Guruji once said that when we are alone and still our thoughts are pure then it is true purity. Our thought, words and action should be divine. We should watch all the three very attentively when we are carrying out our relationship with the outer world.

    Attending such festivals are one of the means to purify our thoughts, words and actions. During the festivals we forget about our daily life and merge with the divine thoughts, words and actions which are expressed in such festivals. Remembering Lord, talking about Lord and seeing the statue of Lord is what such festivals offer.

    Remembering Lord, Chanting the name of the Lord and watching the statue of the Lord is what we also do during different festivals in India. This make us divine and in turn helps us in purification of our thoughts, words and action.

    We should purify our thoughts, words and actions. It will in turn make ourself subtle. Finally we can feel the treasure house of bliss / the supreme happiness who is none other than he.

    Love and Om!
