Consciouness and the 3 states - waking, dreaming & dreamless
sleep - coexist " - Mahesh Yogi

Vedic Astrology Lesson 8

In Sidereal Astrology a planet means any celestial body with
attraction.( From the Greek " planeta " meaning wanderer & the Sanskrit
Graha meaning any celestial body which attracts The 2 luminaries - the Sun
& the Moon - & the two mathematical points - the points of intersection
of the orbits of the Earth & the Moon -( The North and South Nodes ) are
included along with the five major planets.)


The celebrated Gemologist Richard S Brown of   pgadotorg 
writes in his book "Ancient Astral Gemstones & Talismans" that
the nine colours - the seven primary colours of the spectrum & infra-red and ultra-violet - correspond to the Nine revolving
heavens and the Nine Primary Gems.

" The gemological texts of India explain that white light is actually
composed of seven primary colours and two secondary colours
blended together. The seven colors are red, orange, yellow, green,
blue,indigo and violet: and the other two colors are utra-violet and
infra-red. The seven primary colors become visible in the form of
a rainbow whereven light is defracted through a prism or rain drops:
but the two secondary colors always remain invisible.

These nine colors are understood to be the cosmic matrix and the
very essence of the nine planets; it is through these colors that the
planets radiate their energy and influence. When the visible colored-
light waves are measured, infra-red exhibits the longest wave length
and ultra violet the shortest. It is important to note that the wave length
of colored light emanating from the nine planets is believed to match
those radiating from each planet's corresponding gemstone(s). For
example, the wavelength of light emanating from the Sun is identical
to that exhibited by a ruby - both are red.

Among all the elements in nature, gemstones constitute the most
condensed form of concentrated color. Gems provide an inexhaustible
source of cosmic color rays. " ( Richard S Brown " Ancient Astral
Gemstones and Talismans" - ).

Here we give the correspondence between the Nine planets,
colors, gems and Numbers.

Astrology, Prakriti Therapy ( Naturopathy ) & Holistic Medicine

Naturopathy exists as one of the branches of Holistic Medicine ( Ayurveda ).
Holistic Medicine has 2 aspects - The Therapeutic ( Athura Vritta ) & the
Prophylactic ( Swastha Vritta ). Naturopathy is the Prophylactic or the
Preventive System. It is based on the principle " Natura Sanat " ( Nature is
the Healer and Doctor). As the human body is composed of the five elements
( Earth, air, water, fire and ether ) so the Five Doctors are the Elemental
Five! Fasting is the best medicine ( even diseases like ulcer can be cured
by fasting ) and this is known as Ether Therapy ( Akashopasana). Sun bathing
is Fire Therapy ( Tejopasana). Using Water as a therapeutic element is
Water Therapy ( Jalopasana).Letting the body get fresh unpolluted air is Air
Therapy ( Vayu Upasana) and eating pure fruits and vegetables is Earth
Therapy ( Prithvi Upasana ) Naturopathy means returning to Nature and
living in rhythm with Nature, who is infinite in her wisdom! Even Allopathic
scholars have admitted " Medicus curata, natura Sanat"( The physician only
treats but it is Nature that heals )! The main cause of all disease is
overeating and man is advised to eat only once in a day and fast once in a
week !

The five major planets correspond to the Elemental Five thus

Jupiter Ether
Mars Fire
Saturn Air
Mercury Earth
Venus Water.

No wonder in the Pythagorean system, the number five was given such
tremendous importance!

Medical astrologers prescribe Ether Therapy if Jupiter is weak and Fire
Therapy if Mars is weak etc. By means of the Great Art, health can be
restored in the patient !

Astrology & Yoga.

Ordinary man lives in three states of Consciousness - waking, dreaming
and dreamless sleep. There is a higher state of Consciousness - Transce-
ndental Consciousness - which can be accessed via Meditation. In his
Phd Thesis Dr Robert Keith Wallace has proved the existence of
the Fourth State of Consciousness ( Dr Keith Wallace Phd Thesis
" The Physiological effects of Transcendental Meditation - a Proposed
Fourth Major State of Consciousness", the University of California and
Los Angeles, 1975 ). The Fourth State ( Tureeya in Sanskrit ) is accessible
to those who follow the path of Yoga. But to gain T C and get established
in that state of Consciousness is not very easy. The negative elements in
man - our inner enemies - are the impediments. The Wisdom of the
Heavens, by analysing the negative traits in a horoscope can point out
the method by which the Negative Aspect of man can be tamed so that
he becomes eligible for higher states of Consciousness.

The Culmination of Yoga - Universal Love

Even though Union via Wisdom ( Jnana Yoga ) is great, Union via
Love ( Bhakthi Yoga ) is the Redeeming Grace ! The salvation of the
world is in Love & through Love. The heart has its own reasons which
the head need not know ! Love is the Saviour! Universal Love is the
Redeemer ! Love Divine alone can confer Bliss !

Tempting God's light down to the ignorant race
His Love to heal the sorrow in men's hearts
His Bliss to heal the unhappiness of this world!
