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.

We have seen a lot of questions about Ketu raised by search engines which bring visitors to this site, so we shall answer significant questions as we can from the perspective of Ketu as a karmic dispositor, and therefore, a spiritual agent of true humaness.

Saturn and Shiva

Sani at Kailash

Saturn is both son of The Sun by his shadow wife Chaaya, and the most powerful of all the planets in that all seek to avoid his gaze, drishti. There is another whom all seek to avoid the gaze of, Lord Shiva, for the dristhi of the third eye of Shiva causes whatever is seen to burnt. Both deities have all properties of creation-preservation-destruction, in addition to unavoidable energy that has power, shakti, over all that exists. None can avoid the sade-sati of Lord Saturn; None can avoid Lord Shiva, the receiver of all things.

The mythological tales of the Puranas gives the son of Lord Shiva, Karthikeya (also known as Skanda, Murugan, Subramaniam) as the deity behind Planet Mars.

The Three Bodies

The Three Bodies

bodi

Every living being comprises three aspects – Sthula, Sukshma and Karana (gross, subtle and causal). Humans have a physical body, made up of the five elements. Surrounding the physical body is the subtle body – sometimes called the astral body. Deep within the physical and subtle bodies exists the causal body, the consciousness within, the source of the “I” that everyone utters; it is in association with the Knower and the Knowing Principle. These three bodies may be examined from the birth chart.

Abhijit Nakshatra


Vega

Abhijit is a seldom used nakshatra; it is not counted among the 27 asterisms of the Moon. Abhijit is the Sanskrit name for Vega, the brightest star in the northern constellation of Lyra. Its longitude starts from the last quarter of Uttara Ashādhā to first part of Shravana. Abhijit nakshatra is not a regular nakshatra with four padas or quarters, it serves as an intercalary asterism most of the times. It is not mentioned as frequently as other asterisms in mythology. Moon is said to have 27 (not 28) wives with whom he stays for one day in a sidereal lunar month. Each of the 27 asterisms is feminine, only Abhijit is masculine. Abhijit Muhurta is an auspicious time in the Hindu panchang.

Navaratri – the Nine Planets

planet

This is the 9th day of the Navaratri celebrations – and the final day of celebration: the day is called Vijaya Dasami, the Day of Victory; it celebrates the victory of Mother Durga against the force of evil. Sai Baba has told that the nine nights of Navaratri refer to the nine planets – so in this festival the forces of the planets are invoked to remind mankind that they should cultivate noble qualities by engaging themselves in activities beneficial to one’s own self and society.

Sai Baba of Puttaparthi went on to say that each planet has its own significance. However, these planets are not outside, they are within. This refers to the cosmic energies of the planets within, which are like our solar system, forces circumambulating the Sol (outer sun) – and within, these same forces are circumambulating the Soul (inner sun). The colour for the 9th and victorious day of Navaratri is PEACOCK GREEN so we scribe in Peacock Green for this 9th day of Navaratri.

This is the 8th day of the Navaratri celebrations – and the festival rapidly draws to its magnificent conclusion. As Sai Baba has told that the nine nights of Navaratri refer to the nine planets – which includes the two shadow planets Rahu and Ketu (their symbols are here on in this image) on this 8th day. All festivals are meant to remind mankind that they should cultivate noble qualities by engaging themselves in activities beneficial to one’s own self and society.

Speaking about the nine planets, Sai Baba of Puttaparthy went on to say that each planet has its own significance. However, these planets are not outside, they are within. This refers to the cosmic energies of the planets within, and pursuit of the spiritual path would have regard for the influences upon us from birth. Taking up the opportunity presented by Navaratri we look to the influence of the two nodes – Rahu and Ketu – and their inner activity and also examine how the Divine Mother is related to these energies, in the form of Maa Durga. The colour for the 8th day of Navaratri is PURPLE so we scribe in Purple for this 8th day of Navaratri.
