Solar Terms: Major Heat(大暑)


The days before and after the solar term major heat is the hottest days of the summer. As the saying goes 小暑大暑無君子」There is not gentleman during the major heat and minor heat. Temperature is so hot people longer car about manners and take off their clothes, thus losing their gentlemanly image. 
Afternoon rain is common, yet if there is not rain for multiple days, it implies a typhoon is coming. This is the season when typhoons are common. 

As the Chan Master said before, solar terms is a time when the energy of the heavens and earth exchanges. A good time to meditate and recharge yourself. Find a time to enjoy your meditation!
