Sadhguru explains the significance of Makara Sankranti and Pongal, that occurs between Jan 14th and Jan 17th. It signifies re-consecrating the house for the new year, using certain materials, like mango leaves, and the first cut of the paddy leaves. People also get rid of unnecessary things from their homes. Sadhguru tells that this tradition does not only have agricultural undertones, there is also a celestial and spiritual undertone also.
