108 Names of the Sun: Surya Ashtottara Shatanamavali #11



Om Anantaya Namaha, Salutations to the One who is immortal and has no end. The outer Sun is the significator of the inner sun within the human. The inner sun also shares this quality of anantha, for man is not new; man is one who has been born in order that he or she not be born again! True humanness seeks sat, chit, ananda: being, awareness and eternal bliss.

Note about Planetary War

planetary war

Mars is currently encountering Rahu, and under the astrological dicta, Sani vat Rahu (Rahu behaves like Saturn), some reckon that a time of tension occurs as these to graha - seizers of energy - approach conjunction and change houses. Both planets will be sandhi, that is, somewhat depleted of energy as they are within one degree of house - sign boundary. This is not graha yuddha, planetary war. This will pass quickly.

However, planetary war will take place when Mars moves out of sandhi into Libra and gets to within 1 degree of Saturn. Some astrologers have told that this will be months of doom and disaster in various places on our planet. Some have said, inter-alia, that the four horsemen of the apocalypse will ride, and the end of an age with all its dreadful appurtenances will occur. We examine this phenomena from a spiritual discipline.

Mohini Ekadashi

Mohini with pot of amrith

This day of May 11, 2014 is Mohini Ekadashi. Mohini, as astrologers recall, plays a central role in the story of the two nodes, Rahu and Ketu. The demon Swabhanu engaged in deception as Mohini was doling out the amrith to the gods and at the same time, bestowing her bounteous beauty and enchantment upon the asuras - demons - who had fought the gods for the right to partake of amrit, the nectar of immortality. Mohini is the only ever female incarnation of Vishnu, the god of sustenance and preservation of kalapurusha, time and space.

Note on Solar New Year


Idol of Sun God

The Solar New Year begins when the Sun enters the sign of Aries in the zodiac. This is a traditional time when one casts a kundli or birth chart for the nation in order that one might ascertain what is ahead for that country in the forthcoming year. Other jyotisha may use the annual varshapaal chart; using the entry of the Sun, Lord Surya, into Aries is also taken as well-established. In this note about the Solar New Year, we would speak of the role of the outer sun and the inner sun in our lives, the placement of the Sun for the coming year and its relation to the Fourth (and other dimensions) and the story of Hanuman swallowing the Sun. The Sun then gives the gift of the Vedas to Hanuman.

Understanding Mercury and the 4th Dimension



Lord Budha, known as Planet Mercury

The Armour of Budha – A Puranic Chant for Mercury

Budha Preethyarthe Jape Viniyoga
This chant is being done to please Lord Budha (Planet Mercury).

Budhasthu pusthakadhara kumkumasya samadhyuthi,
Peethambardhara pathu, peethamalyanu lepana.

Let us be protected by Budha,
Who holds a book in his hand,
Who shines with Kumkuma (saffron),
Who wears yellow silk,
And who wears yellow garland
.

Katim cha pathu may soumya, siro desam budhasthadha,
Nethra jnanamaya pathu, srothre pathu nisa priya.

Let him who is peaceful protect my hip,
Let my head and surroundings be protected by Budha,
Let my eyes be protected by the one who is engulfed in knowledge,
Let my ears be protected by him who loves night.

Granam gandha priya pathu, jihwam vidhyapriyo mama,
Kantam pathu vidho, puthro bhujow pusthaka bhooshana.

Let my sense of smell be protected he who likes scents,
Let my tongue be protected by he who likes knowledge,
Let my neck be protected by the knowledgeable one,
Let my arms be protected by he who is decorated by books.

Vaksha pathu varangascha, hrudhayam rohini sutha,
Nabhim pathu suraradhyo, madhyam pathu khageswara.

Let my breast be protected by the blessed one,
Let my heart be protected by son of Rohini,
Let my belly be protected by first among devas,
Let my middle be protected by God of the birds
.

Januni rohinoyascha pathu jange akhila pradha,
Pathou may bhodhana pathu, Pathu sowmyam akhilo vapu.

Let my knee be protected by he who belongs to Rohini,
Let my calf be protected by he who knows everything,
Let my feet be protected by he who is expert teacher,
And let all the rest of me be protected by he who is peaceful.

Yethadwi kavacham divyam, sarva papa pranasanam,
Sarva roga prasamanam, sarva dukha nivaranam.

This Armour which is holy,
Destroys all sins committed,
Cures all types of diseases,
And is the panacea for all sorrow.

Ayur aroghya subhadham, puthra pouthra prabhardhanam,
Ya padeth srunuyath vapi sarvathra vijayee bhaveth.

It blesses one with long healthy life,
Increases sons and grand sons,
And those who read or hear it,
Would be victorious everywhere.

Ithi Sri Brahma Vaivartha Purane Budha Kavacham Sampoornam
Thus ends the armour of Mercury which occurs in Brahma Vaivartha purana.

While the fourth dimension is not radically different – to all appearances – to the existing third dimension, these two dimensions are actually merging now, as we speak. We look to the role of Budha – the Planet Mercury in the fourth dimension.

Surya Jayanti

Suryanarayana

Saptami Tithi is dedicated to Lord Surya. Shukla Paksha Saptami in Magha month is known as Ratha Saptami or Magha Saptami. It is believed that Lord Surya – The Sun – started enlightening the whole world on Ratha Saptami day which was considered as birthday of Surya, the Sun God. Hence this day is also known as Surya Jayanti, the Birth Day of The Sun.

In the Vedic view, there is an intimate connection between the Moon and the mind and between the Sun and the eye.

Gratitude is the most fundamental virtue of man. People while performing Suryanamaskaras, extol the Sun god in various ways. One of them is Kritaghnaghnaya Namah (salutations to the one who punishes the ungrateful). The effulgence of the Sun god is present in our eyes in a subtle form. Chandrama Manaso Jataha Chaksho Suryo Ajayata (the moon was born out of the mind and the sun out of the eyes of the Supreme Being). It is said that the Sun god withdraws his effulgence from the eyes of the ungrateful.

Rahu, Swati and Transformation

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. Rahu is also transiting a Nakshatra by name of Swati. What is the effect of Rahu in Swati?

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.
