Verse 1-4. Offering his obeisance to all-knowing Mahārishi Parāśar and with folded hands, Maitreya said: “O venerable Mahārishi, Jyotish, the supreme limb of the Vedas, has three divisions, viz. Horā, Ganita and Samhita. Among the said three divisions Horā, or the general part of Jyotish is still more excellent. I desire to know of its glorious aspects from you. Be pleased to tell me, how this Universe is created? How does it end? What is the relationship of the animals, born on this earth, with the heavenly bodies? Please speak elaborately”

Verse 5-8. Mahārśi Parāśara answered –  O Brahmin, your query has an auspicious purpose in it for the welfare of the Universe.Praying to Lord Brahma and Śrī Saraswatī, his power (and consort) and Sun, the leader of the Planets and the cause of Creation, I shall proceed to narrate to you the science of Jyotisha, as heard through Lord Brahma. Only good will follow the teaching of this Vedic Science to the students, who are peacefully disposed, who honour the preceptors/elder, who speak only truth and are God fearing. Woeful forever, doubtlessly, will it be to impart knowledge of this science to an unwilling student (sceptical unbelieving Student) to a heterodox and to a crafty person.

व्यक्ताव्यक्तात्मको विष्णुर्वासुदेवस्तु गीयते । यदव्यक्तात्मको विष्णुः श्क्तितद्वयसमन्वितः ॥ १२॥

Verse 9-12. Śrī Vishnu, who is the Lord (of all matters), who has undefiled spirit, who is endowed with the three Gunas, although he transcends the grip of Gunas ( As Lord Vishnu is Gunatita – way beyond and transcending the Gunas), who is the Author of this Universe, who is glorious, who is the Cause and who is endowed with valour, has no beginning. He authored the Universe and administers it with a quarter of his power. The other three quarters of Him, filled with nectar, are knowable only to the philosophers (who have maturity). The Principal Evolver, who is both perceptible and imperceptible in Vasudeva. The Imperceptible part of the Lord is endowed with dual powers, while the Perceptible with triple powers.

Verse 13-15. The three powers are Śrī Shakti Mother Lakshmi with Sattva-Guna, Bhū Shakti Mother-Earth with Rajas Guna and Nīl Shakti with Tamo-Guna. Apart from the three, the fourth kind of Vishnu, influenced by Śrī Shakti and Bhoo Shakti, assumes the form of Shankarshana with Tamo-Guna, of Pradyumna with Rajas-Guna and of Anirudh with Sattva-Guna.

  1. Lord Vishnu, coupled with Śrī Shakti, rules over the three worlds. Coupled with Bhu Shakti, He is Brahma causing the Universe. Coupled with Neel Shakti, He is Shiva, destroying the Universe.
    21-24. The Lord is in all beings and the entire Universe is in Him. All beings contain both Jivatma and Paramatmāńśas. Some have predominance of the former, while yet some have the latter in predominance. Paramatmāńśa is predominant in the Planets, viz. Sun etc. and Brahma, Shiva and others. Their powers or consorts too have predominance of Paramatmāńśa. Others have more of Jivatmāńśa.
  2. According to Parāśara statement to Maitreya, mortals cannot conceive or Will have no knowledge of the three parts of Nārāyaṇa or Vasudeva.  that are śuddha-sattva, śuddha-rajas, śuddha-tamas » śuddha in sanskrit means absolute purity. The trimūrti or the trilogy are the Brahma, Viṣṇu and Rudra of the three guṇa avatāra.

देवा वैकारिकाज्जातास्तैजसादिन्द्रियाणि । तामसच्चैवभू तानि खादीनि स्वस्वशक्तिभिः ॥ १९॥

श्रीशक्त्या सहितो विष्णुः सदा पाति जगत्त्रयम् । भूशक्त्या सृजते ब्रह्मा नीलशक्त्या शिवोऽत्ति हि ॥ २०॥

Verse 18-19. Ahamkara is of three classes, i.e. with Sattvic, Rajasic and Tamasic dispositions. Divine class, sensory organs and the five primordial compounds (space, air, fire, water and earth) are, respectively, from the said three Ahamkaras.


  1. Lord Krishna mentions the Gunas One’s Attitudes in the Bhagavad-gītā

    Bhagavad-gītā –  Chapter 14, Verse 5

    सत्त्वं रजस्तम इति गुणा: प्रकृतिसम्भवा: | निबध्नन्ति महाबाहो देहे देहिनमव्ययम् || 5||

    sattvaṁ rajas tama iti guṇāḥ prakṛiti-sambhavāḥ ; nibadhnanti mahā-bāho dehe dehinam avyayam

    O mighty-armed Arjun, the material energy consists of three guas (modes)—sattva (goodness), rajas (passion), and tamas (ignorance). These modes bind the eternal soul to the perishable body.

    तत्र सत्त्वं निर्मलत्वात्प्रकाशकमनामयम् | सुखसङ्गेन बध्नाति ज्ञानसङ्गेन चानघ || 6||

    tatra sattvaṁ nirmalatvāt prakāśhakam anāmayam ; sukha-saṅgena badhnāti jñāna-saṅgena chānagha

    Amongst these, sattva gua, the mode of goodness, being purer than the others, is illuminating and full of well-being. O sinless one, it binds the soul by creating attachment for a sense of happiness and knowledge.

    रजो रागात्मकं विद्धि तृष्णासङ्गसमुद्भवम् | तन्निबध्नाति कौन्तेय कर्मसङ्गेन देहिनम् || 7||

    rajo rāgātmaka viddhi tihā-saga-samudbhavam ; tan nibadhnāti kaunteya karma-sagena dehinam

    O Arjun, rajo gua is of the nature of passion. It arises from worldly desires and affections, and binds the soul through attachment to fruitive actions.

    Bhagavad gītā –  Chapter 14, Verse 5

    सत्त्वं रजस्तम इति गुणा: प्रकृतिसम्भवा: | निबध्नन्ति महाबाहो देहे देहिनमव्ययम् || 5||

    sattva rajas tama iti guā prakiti-sambhavāḥ ; nibadhnanti mahā-bāho dehe dehinam avyayam

    O mighty-armed Arjun, the material energy consists of three guas (modes)—sattva (goodness), rajas (passion), and tamas (ignorance). These modes bind the eternal soul to the perishable body.

    तत्र सत्त्वं निर्मलत्वात्प्रकाशकमनामयम् | सुखसङ्गेन बध्नाति ज्ञानसङ्गेन चानघ || 6||

    Amongst these, sattva gua, the mode of goodness, being purer than the others, is illuminating and full of well-being. O sinless one, it binds the soul by creating attachment for a sense of happiness and knowledge.

    रजो रागात्मकं विद्धि तृष्णासङ्गसमुद्भवम् | तन्निबध्नाति कौन्तेय कर्मसङ्गेन देहिनम् || 7||

    rajo rāgātmaka viddhi tihā-saga-samudbhavam ; tan nibadhnāti kaunteya karma-sagena dehinam

    O Arjun, rajo gua is of the nature of passion. It arises from worldly desires and affections, and binds the soul through attachment to fruitive actions.

    Bhagavad Gita –  Chapter 14, Verse 5

    तमस्त्वज्ञानजं विद्धि मोहनं सर्वदेहिनाम् | प्रमादालस्यनिद्राभिस्तन्निबध्नाति भारत || 8||

    tamas tv ajñāna-ja viddhi mohana sarva-dehinām ; pramādālasya-nidrābhis tan nibadhnāti bhārata

    O Arjun, tamo gua, which is born of ignorance, is the cause of illusion for the embodied souls. It deludes all living beings through negligence, laziness, and sleep.

    सत्त्वं सुखे सञ्जयति रज: कर्मणि भारत | ज्ञानमावृत्य तु तम: प्रमादे सञ्जयत्युत || 9||

    sattva sukhe sañjayati raja karmai bhārata ;jñānam āvitya tu tama pramāde sañjayaty uta

    Sattva binds one to material happiness; rajas conditions the soul toward actions; and tamas clouds wisdom and binds one to delusion.

    अर्जुन उवाच | कैर्लिङ्गैस्त्रीन्गुणानेतानतीतो भवति प्रभो | किमाचार: कथं चैतांस्त्रीन्गुणानतिवर्तते || 21||

    arjuna uvācha – kair liṅgais trīn guṇān etān atīto bhavati prabho ; kim āchāraḥ kathaṁ chaitāns trīn guṇān ativartat

    Arjun inquired: What are the characteristics of those who have gone beyond the three guas, O Lord? How do they act? How do they go beyond the bondage of the guas?

    Verse 22-23 श्रीभगवानुवाच | प्रकाशं च प्रवृत्तिं च मोहमेव च पाण्डव | न द्वेष्टि सम्प्रवृत्तानि न निवृत्तानि काङ् क्षति || 22||

    उदासीनवदासीनो गुणैर्यो न विचाल्यते | गुणा वर्तन्त इत्येवं योऽवतिष्ठति नेङ्गते || 23||

    śhrī-bhagavān uvācha ; prakāśhaṁ cha pravṛittiṁ cha moham eva cha pāṇḍava; na dveṣhṭi sampravṛittāni na nivṛittāni kāṅkṣhati ; udāsīna-vad āsīno guṇair yo na vichālyate ; guṇā vartanta ity evaṁ yo ’vatiṣhṭhati neṅgate

    • Verse 22-23
    • श्रीभगवानुवाच | प्रकाशं च प्रवृत्तिं च मोहमेव च पाण्डव | न द्वेष्टि सम्प्रवृत्तानि न निवृत्तानि काङ् क्षति || 22||

    • The Supreme Divine Personality said: O Arjun, The persons who are transcendental to the three guas neither hate illumination (which is born of sattva), nor activity (which is born of rajas), nor even delusion (which is born of tamas), when these are abundantly present, nor do they long for them when they are absent. They remain neutral to the modes of nature and are not disturbed by them. Knowing it is only the guas that act, they stay established in the self, without wavering.

SHIVA SHAKTI – BUILDING BLOCKS OF THE UNIVERSE


SHIVA IS the All present – impersonal, Inactive, Eternal Pure Consciousness – Shakti is Dynamic, pure bliss and Consciousness

And the Force behind every manifestation in this Universe is Shakti. Shakti is transcendence,awreness perfection and total summation of all egos, and of her own will divides herself into two.Imperfection is concomitant with such scission; There is bound to be an insentient phase which repersents the aforesaid exterior or unmanifested void; The sentient void is Sadashiva Tattva.

The sentient phase is called Ishwara; And the insentient is called the Maya or Avidya in the Upanishads.

At the time of Creation – Ishawara divides himself into three aspects – Rudra, Vishnu and Brahma.Representing the modes of the Ego associated with the three qualities of darkness, brightness and activity – which is saw earlier – which is nothing but the Gunas.

From Tripura Rahasya translated by Swami Saraswathi

 

Thus, Narayana with Sri Shakti is called Maha-Vishnu and is of pure Satwa Guna; Narayana with Bhu Shakti is Param-Brahmä and is of pure Rajas Guna; while Narayana with Nila Shakti is Sada-Shiva and is of pure Tamas Guna. These three parts are full of nectar and are imperceptible.

 

The static Vāsudeva is unmanifested with two shakti » Sri and Bhū – and permeates the FOUR spiritual worlds Mahar, Janar, Tapar and Satya Loka. With Sri Vasudeva populates the worlds and with Bhū, He is the firmament of the worlds, sustaining them.

The dynamic Vasudeva is manifested with three shakti » Śrī, Bhū and Nīla – and permeates the THREE material worlds Bhūr, Bhuvar, Svaha with different mixtures of all three shakti.

Therefore technically, the manifested worlds with all the planets, the Suns and stars and everything is only one-eighth portion of Narayana. » hence the definition mantra of Narayana must have eight syllables

ॐ नमो नारायणाय | om namo nārāyaṇāya

when Vāsudeva manifests with the three shakti, He displays miśra guṇa » the sattva, rajas and tamas is mixed and with differing proportions

  1. Sattva excess comes by domination of Śrī Śaktī
  2. Rajas excess comes by domination of Bhū Śaktī
  3. Tamas domination comes by domination of Nīla Śaktī
  • Sattva domination brings forth four signs » Caner, Leo, and their 5th in reverse and direct i.e. Pi (5H reverse from Cn) and Sg (5H direct from Le). So, we say that Lakṣmī dominates the trines due to this 5th house. Hence we now know that the trinal houses are the Lakṣmī sthana places.
  • Rajas domination brings forth four signs » 2nd and 10th from Cancer (reverse) and Leo (direct). We have Ge and Li (2H, 10H from Cn in reverse) and Vi, Ta (2H, 10H from Le in direct)
  • Tamas domination brings forth four signs » 4th and 7th from Cancer (reverse) and Leo (direct). We have Aries and Capricorn (4H, 7H from Cancer in reverse) and Scorpio, Aquarius (4H, 7H from Leo in direct movement)

The three Steps of Vishnu – paramam padam of Vamana Avvatar who is a form of Lord Vishnu himself

In this manner Vāsudeva takes three steps springing forth Sattva, Rajas and Tamas dominated rāśi. Similarly, the three lokas that manifest with Vāsudeva have a dominance of Tamas (Bhū), Rajas (Bhuva) and Sattva (Svarga).

Realise that the guṇa in these are all miśra and not śuddha.

  • Bhū-Loka comprises Lagna → 4th bhāva
  • Bhuva Loka comprises 5th → 8th bhāva
  • Svarga Loka comprises 9th → 12th bhāva

In this manner 12 rāśi are created with the dominance of sattva, rajas and tamas guṇa respectively. And we have the powerful dvādasākṣari mantra of 12 syllables from Nārada muni that touches the signs and ends at the holy feet of Vāsudeva » ॐ नमो भगवते वासुदेवाय | om namo bhagavate vāsudevāya.These are two of the three mantras of the Nārāyaṇa kavacha. They are based on Sṛṣṭi and go into the very root of all creation.

Horā

अहोरात्र य पवार्ू यलोपा होराऽविश यते। त य िवज्ञानमात्रणे जातकमफर् लं वदेत॥् १॥

ahorātrasya pūrvāntyalopād horā’vaśiṣyate | tasya vijñānamātreṇa jātakarmaphalaṁ vadet || 1||

Sage Parāśara teaches The word होरा (horā) is derived from अहोरात्र ahorātra which means day अहो (aho) and night रात्र (rātra)

  • Dropping the first syllable of अहो (aho) and last syllables of रात्र (rātra) – what remains is हो (ho) रा (rā)  होरा (horā)

When a jyotiṣa has the िवज्ञान vijñāna of horā, the ‘karma phala’ – fructification of karma of any jātaka horoscope is comprehensible

Vijñāna means and includes Knowledge: act of distinguishing or discerning, understanding, comprehending, recognizing.

Another meaning is the Ability: the skill, proficiency, art based on study and practice. Yet another is about connection to  science, doctrine based on study and comparison.Yet when we look to the Upanishads, one of the oldest texts of the Vedas. It goes on to say : Kena-upaniṣad mantra 2.3:यस्यामतं तस्य मतं मतं यस्य न वेद सः । अविज्ञातं विजानतां विज्ञातमविजानताम् ॥ ३ ॥

yasyāmata tasya mata mata yasya na veda sa |
avijñāta vijānatā vijñātamavijānatām || 3 ||

yasya—by whom (of that knower of Brahman); amatam—is not thought (who thinks that he does not know Brahman) not to be reasoned or thought out or determined; tasya—by him; of him; matam—it is known; matam—it is thought (who thinks that he knows Brahman); yasya—by whom; na—not; veda—he knows; sa—he; avijñātam—not known, not realised; vijānatām—of (by) the difference knowers (who still have the idea of distinctions of the knower, knowledge and known); vijñātam—known; avijānatām—by (of) non-difference knowers, who do not know distinctions of knower, known, and knowledge The force of is to denote “distinction, mainfoldness”.

Of whom (the opinion is) “Brahman is not to be thought of,” by him He is (rightly) thought. He who thinks “Brahman has been thought of by me,” he does not know. By those who consider “we have realised Brahman,” He has not been realised. By those who consider “we cannot fully realise Brahman” He is realised.

Rāśināmāni

Rāśi: Sun Signs – Given by the SOLAR MOTION

राशिनामानि। rāśināmāni |
मेषो वृषोऽथ मिथुनः कर्कटः सिंहकन्यके। तुलाऽथ वृश्चको धन्वी मकरः कुंभमीनकौ॥
meṣo vṛṣo’tha mithunaḥ karkaṭaḥ siṁhakanyake | tulā’tha vṛścako dhanvī makaraḥ kuṁbhamīnakau ||

The word rāśi refers to a quantity of something, and is a measure of this quantity implying something tangible; It means a heap, mass or pile of stuff, can mean a group or multitudes of beings like animals or men.

Ecliptic is 360° and is composed of twelve rāśi each measuring 30° longitude. Now, when we divide 360° by 30°, we get 12 rāśi Signs. WHY 30° for each sign? The Sun and Moon were observed to conjoin in the sky every 30 days. And it was observed that the average motion of the Sun is about 1° per day. Therefore, in 30 days the Sun would have moved ahead by 30°. This measure by which the Sun moved ahead between two conjunctions with the Moon is called a rāśi. In western terminology it literally means a Sign.

Yuga, The Concept and the Four Yuga rāśi

The Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa (Vj) or also referred to as Jyotiṣavedāṅga, of Lagadha, is one of earliest known Indian texts on astronomy. The extant text is dated to the final centuries BCE, but it may be based on a tradition reaching back to about 700-600 BCE.

Its describes some of the the astronomical knowledge of the times of altar ritual. It has an internal date of c. 1350 BCE obtained from its assertion that the winter solstice
was at the asterism Sravishta. ancient name of this nakshatra is Sravishta, current times it is Dhanistha. Sravishta Star means someone about whom people have heard a lot anout or are famous or well known  and is the constellation Delphini. Recent archaeological discoveries
support such an early date, and so this book assumes great importance in
the understanding of the earliest astronomy. Vedāṅga Jyotiṣa VJ describes the mean motions of the Sun and the Moon. This manual is available in two recensions: the earlier Rigvedic VJ (RVJ) and the later Yajurvedic VJ (YVJ).

RVJ has 36 verses and YVJ has 43 verses. As the only surviving extant astronomical text from the Vedic period/
The measures of time used in VJ are as follows

1 lunar year = 360 tithis (As there are 30 tithis in a months x 12 = 360)
1 solar year = 366 solar days
1 day = 30 muhurtas
1 muhurta = 2 nadikas
1 nadikas = 10 1/20 kalas
1 day = 124 amsas (parts)
1 day = 603 kalas

Furthermore, five years were taken to equal a yuga. A ordinary yuga
consisted of 1,830 days. An intercalary month was added at half the yuga
and another at the end of the yuga.     (References : Birth and Early Development of Indian Astronomy By Subhash Kak Louisiana State University)

Yet there is another Yuga that we are referring to when we are mapping the Rashis to the Yugas.

Kṛta Yuga = Agni koṇa: Fire trines 1, 5, 9 signs

Treta Yuga = Jala koṇa: Water trines  4, 8, 12 signs

Dvāpara Yuga = Vāyu koṇa: Air Trines 7, 11, 3 signs

Kali Yuga  = Pṛthvi koṇa Earth Trines  = 10, 2, 6 signs

  1. Longevity of men decreased from 1000, 500, 250 and 125 years during these four yuga
  2. Planets occupying the rāśi and navāṁśa contribute parts of their daśā periods towards longevity
    • Kṛta, 4 pada (full) daśā People born in Kṛta rāśi get everything without asking
    • Dvāpara, 3 pada Dvāpara rāśi get wealth and desires though work and trade
    • Treta 2 pada Treta rāśi get wealth etc, if they so desire
    • Kali rāśi, 1 pada purposes Kali rāśi never get the benefit even for what they work for.
