Solar term: vernal equinox (春分)

The vernal equinox symbolises spring is already half past.  On this day, the sun shines equally on the north and south hemispheres; the day and night is of equal length. From this day on, the day will become longer while the night becomes shorter.  
The weather is relatively unstable and can change dramatically during this season. People can easily get sick due to the change in weather. Remember to carry an extra coat with you and stay warm! 
The Chan Master mentioned Solar terms are a good time to meditate. It is when the energy between the earth and sky is exchanged. Especially for those who don't feel anything during meditation, try practicing today, when the heaven and earth is 'on your side' (figurative).
