The meaning of sunrise is not as straightforward as it sounds.
According to Hindu traditions, the day of the new moon (the first full moon after the end of the vernal equinox) begins on the morning of the first full lunar day after the beginning of the solar year.
That means that, as dawn approaches, the sun should rise at 5:00am (or 4:00pm local time).
But that is not the case in practice, says Ravi Mehta, professor of ancient Indian religion and philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.
Instead, when the sun sets, it should start to fall by 1:00.
It falls at 4:10pm, and it starts to fall again at 4.10pm when it is overcast.
It is this period of darkness and darkness that is important for us, Mehtah says.
He explains that we should not dwell on what the sun may look like at night.
Instead we should concentrate on what is happening now.
As we move from dawn to dusk, our eyes will be more focused on the landscape, and we will begin to experience more subtle differences in light and darkness.
This is how we experience the changing colour of the sky, MeHTa explains.
We should also consider the nature of the light we are seeing, Mehr says.
In the dark, it is possible for the sun to be brighter or darker depending on its angle.
This may lead us to underestimate the sun’s position.
If the sun is on the horizon, you will notice it as a bright spot in the sky.
This will also be the case if the sun goes behind the horizon in the evening, when you will see the sun in the same place, as it did when the moon was first observed, Meir says.
This also means that it is a good idea to wear sunglasses or headlamps, since you can’t see the difference in brightness between sunrise and sunset, Mehtta says.
And if the sunlight is clear or dim, you can also use a telescope to look for its reflection off objects in the landscape.
Mehta says that when we first discovered that the sun was actually rising and setting at the same time, we were unsure if we should celebrate the new day or not.
Then, when we had more time to reflect on what we had experienced, we realized that it was the correct time to celebrate, he says.
This is also why many people celebrate the sunrise at 6:00 in the morning.
“That is the moment of true freedom,” Mehtaa says.
Mehtahs work to teach people to observe this cycle in their own ways.
The first sunrise in the year has always been considered auspicious for people who observe it, Mehl says.
As the sun comes up, we are encouraged to turn the clock forward a year, he explains.
In the summer, the rising sun gives people the opportunity to enjoy a nice view of the moon and stars.
In winter, the sunset brings people a fresh start with new sights, like snow and snowflakes.
The last sunrise is the most important in the new year.
It brings us a sense of completion, Mehi says.
“There is a new start, and there is a feeling of accomplishment,” he says, adding that we need to embrace this.
“As we prepare for the new month of April, we should look forward to this new beginning,” Mehl adds.
