Makar Sankranti signifies that we should turn away from the darkness of delusion in which we live, and begin to joyously let the light within us shine brighter and brighter. We should gradually begin to grow in purity, wisdom, and knowledge, even as the sun does from this day. 🌻🌻☀☀🌞🌻🌻
Wish you all a very Happy Makar Sankranti !!!
