zodiac

Shadow Planet Rahu – the head of the dragon in vedic mythology – is an interesting planet: it actually has no form. That is why it is called a shadow planet, for Rahu (and counterpart Ketu) are known to be causes of eclipses, and have affect on the human body and human mind at the time of eclipse. They bring about transformation. Transformation is the subject of this post as Rahu is currently transiting Libra, where it has been with Saturn, for some time.

Junk DNA and Rahu


DNA

There have been a lot of questions about Rahu from visitors to this site, so we will attempt to answer a few of these as best we can from the perspective of Rahu as a karmic dispositor, and therefore, a spiritual agent of human evolution and return to source. Junk DNA and Rahu have a lot to do with this, as we shall discover.

The myth behind the shadow planet Rahu speaks of the Asura Swabhanu, who was a dragon. He was sundered – cut apart – after the churning of the Ocean of Milk, wherein the last gift was amrita, the nectar of immortality, which Rahu obtained by subterfuge. So the DNA image here – the twisting strands that hold the key to the building blocks of our life somewhat resemble the whole, Swabhanu the demon, sundered in two.

Navagraha Ketu - God without head

A Puranic Chant for Ketu:

Kethum karala vadanam, chithra varnam, kireetinam,
Pranamami sada kethum, dwajaakaaram graheswaram.

I always salute Ketu, who has face filled with horror, Who is of multiple
colors, has a crown, Who is shaped like a flag and is the Lord of planets.

Chithra varna sira pathu, bhalam dhoomra samudhyuthi,
Pathu nethre pingalaksha, sruthi may raktha lochana.

Let the multicoloured one protect my head, Let my hair be protected by he
who produces smoke, Let my eyes be protected by one with reddish
brown eye, And let what I hear be protected by He who has red blood eyes.

Granam pathu swarnabha, schibukam simhikasutha,
Pathum cha kandam may Kethu, skandou pathu grahadhipa.

Let my smell be protected by him who shines like gold, Let my chin be
protected by the son of Simhika, Let my neck and feet be protected by
Ketu, And let the Lord of Planets protect my shoulder

Hasthou pathu sura sreshta, kukshim pathu maha graha,
Simhasana katim pathu, madhyam pathu mahasura.

Let my arms be protected by the chief of devas, Let the great planet
protect my belly, Let my hip be protected by he who sits on the
throne, And let the great asura protect my middle.

Ooru pathu maha seersho, januni may athi kopana,
Pathu padhou cha may kroora, sarvangam nara pingala.

Let my thighs be protected by the great head, Let my knees be protected
by him with great anger, Let my feet be protected by the cruel one, And let
all my parts of body be protected by the reddish brown God.

Ya idham kavacham divyam, sarva roga vinasanam,
Sarva shathru vinasam cha, dharanad vijayi bhaved.

This holy armour destroys all diseases, Destroys all enemies and,
Once worn will make you victorious.

Ithi Brahmanda Purane Kethu Kavacham sampoornam.
Thus ends the Armour of Ketu from Brahmanda Purana.
