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.
Today is the third day of the Navaratri celebrations which are held for nine nights. 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. Sai Baba made this reference to Navaratri and the Nine Planets:
As part of Navaratri celebrations, people worship different forms of divinity. You should develop sacred feelings and experience divinity. What is the inner meaning of Navaratri celebrations? These nine nights represent nine planets. Each planet has its own significance. However, these planets are not outside, they are within. If your feelings are impure and unsacred, the result also will be the same. You are responsible for the good and bad you think and experience.
As the nine nights represent the nine planets, we will be focussing on Navaratri and the nine planets with an account of one or another the planets for nine nights. For the third night of Navaratri, we will take the planet Mars. The third day of Navratri is Sindoor Tritya. The colour for the third day of Navaratri is RED, so we scribe in RED for this third day observance of Navaratri.
Vata, Vata, Vata
Vata is one of the three doshas, or constitutions of Ayurveda. Vata means airy or wind, and this applies to to planets. The Vata planets are Sun, Mercury, Rahu, the Air signs are Mithuna (Gemini) Tula (Libra) and Kumbh (Aquarius). Right now, we have a situation where an air sign is full of planets and is being aspected by Vata planets.
(This is Part Two of a letter to my friend, Gandhi. Gandhi is his nickname due his remarkable resemblance to the late Mahatma Gandhi. “Gandhi” lives in Puttaparthi, and asked me about the forthcoming Solar New Year. In the last post, I began with a general overview of the Sun’s dispersion of rays, and how this energy is being checked or throttled by Saturn and Rahu, and how the 4th Dimension energy continue to flow to us with checks and balances. )
you wrote to me and asked about the Solar New Year and what it might have in store for you. In my last letter, I explained how the Sun is vargottama in 14 divisions and what this means. There are checks and balances brought by Saturn and Rahu, and Mars is depleted, in combustion being so close to the Sun; Mars is weakened to the tune of 95% so there are changes in the way strength and force are used. Social networking, social relationships are in for a marked change due this combustion of Mars.

Uluru and the Autumn Equinox
In our article Understanding the Fourth Dimension, we mentioned the energies flowing in from the Core of Suns, the Source of All.
The new energy has been coming in for quite some time. It reached the turning point with the alignment of the Sun with the core of suns, then it reached back to the creation of all. This opened up many opportunities for all aspects of creation, and all forms of life in all the kingdoms, mineral, plant, animal and human.
This energy has first come to various grids in our atmosphere, and then descended to stargates on the Earth where the energy is distributed in a balanced degree and quantity to places all over the Earth.
The new energies are distributed through stargates like Uluru
Om is the energy of creation, preservation, dissolution. It is an essence. It is everything. It is Absolute and it comes from nothing, it comes from the Void.
Cosmic Energy, the OM, is the basic form of energy in everything. It is in you, in your earth body and your brain. It is in your mind consciousness, your God consciousness – that is within you.
You are also easily influenced by this energy – but it is taken for granted. Everyone needs to think about this; and think about how it affects you and influences you. Everyone may acknowledge it … every day, every moment, every second of your life.
