Today, the Sun in Cancer, Kataka, opposes the Moon at 180 degrees ( Moon in Utharashada ) and is widely celebrated as the Full Moon Day of the Guru, Guru Poornima.
Guru is the dispeller of the darkness of Ignorance.
Bhakti & Vibhakti,
Love & Intellectual Love
This is very controversial. I had an argument with my Nationalist friend. He supported Bhakti, while I supported Vibhakti. He said the Lord loves Bhakti more than VIbhakti. He cited the instance of the Malayalam poet, Poonthanam receiving more Grace than the Vibhakti, Sanskrit poet, Melpathur. He said Melpathur was an egotist and Poonthanam was humble ! I did not argue much with him, as he is a layman, who does not know the higher reaches of Science and Philosophy !
This is actually a sorry state in Kerala and India. True Science ( Vaisesika ) and Philosophy ( Vedanta ) are suppressed by people who do not know them ! Also explains why India went through Black Holes of spiritual stagnation after the exit of Aurobindo, Vivekananda et al.
We call upon the Nationalist Govt to invest more in Education and R&D. ( Technology cometh only from R&D. Intellectual acumen cometh from Education ). Only then can India's potential be actualised !
