“Brahma, born out of the lotus flower, could not see the world, although he was situated in the whorl of a lotus. He therefore circumambulated all of space, and while moving his eyes in all directions he achieved four heads. Situated in that lotus, he could not perfectly understand the creation, the lotus or himself.
In the stellar world of nakshatras, Lord Brahma, the creator, the first offspring of Lord Vishnu, presides over two different nakshatras: Rohini, the star of growth and expansion, and (according to oldest Vedic scriptures) Mula, the star our roots. Interestingly, Mula, is this portion of our night sky, where we can see the Milky Way galaxy and locate a supermassive black hole in its center. Astronomers believe that every large galaxy has its own supermassive black hole, which might have been in the past its origin – and which might eventually consume it. All the stars and solar systems, including our Sun, revolve around their supermassive black holes, in spiral-like shape, pulled by their irresistible gravitational pull, which looks from the distance, as if the black hole is „churning” the ocean of this part of vast cosmic creation.
Black holes are the most mysterious objects in our manifested universe. By its definition, a black hole is a region of spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing, not even particles of light, can escape from inside it. Everything that approach black hole is getting consumed by it – and nobody can ever know, what is happening behind the event horizon. How so?
Such is the influence of Time and death itself in our world, represented by 12th house in our Vedic Astrology chart. This deep feeling of existential emptiness and fear of the unknown can be experienced here, as if you were looking right into the black hole, if there is any serious planetary obstruction.
Interestingly enough, Brahma is considered in Vedic Astrology to be the devata of Ketu (karmic finisher and planetary ruler of Mula nakshatra), adi-devata of Saturn (ruler of 12th house) and pratyadi-devata of Jupiter, who is the planetary ruler of Pisces. Thus the energies of these three planets, so important for understanding 12th house in Vedic Astrology, as well as the sign of Pisces, are connected in Brahma.
I am still in the process of writing “Twelve Vedic Suns” and it will take me quite some time. But if you preorder, you can become the first one to have the access to some of the finished chapters. This will be my longest ebook – I estimate it to be 600 pages long in total.
