22-Shiv and Cosmos
Appeared in Sacred Objects Group as "Cosmic Musings by Natabara" on 12/24/2011

I was attracted to a theory given in a cosmology Congress last year in which an Indian found that Lord Shiv dancing represents Orion. While Orion for the Greeks is "The Hunter", in India is Shiv. I will later elaborate on this as well as the risen right hand of Shiv is the star Aardraa and on top of his head is Dhruv Lok or Polaris. Hence, the galactic center is the middle of his body. What the Maayaa (or Brahmaa Jee?) saw as a bird on top of the tree of life is Polaris and the Milky Way, which represents the body of Lord Shiva or "the Tree of Life".

We know about how only Lord Shiv was the only demigod to be able to stand the fall of the celestial Ganges (the celestial Milky Way) on his head, and this was represented as Shiv dancing, and Aardraa the star, that means 'wet', is ruled by Raahu and is his right hand risen up. And Aardraa is called wet because it gets wet when the Ganges "swallows", from time to time, flooding this star which is on its banks. Only by expanding our love we can understand all of this. As long as we have hate in our heart we cannot see the glories of Krishn because revelation will not come. And the hate is only a mental symptom. In this way the Maayaa calendar is a test for us to understand the technicalities of the terrestrial sky as seen by very ancient people. Basically, there are four forces to consider; the ecliptic and the obliquity which are linked to the terrestrial sky, and the Precession and the Yug that are linked to the celestial sky.

The Bhaagvat Puraan gives the names of the signs of the zodiac for the first time in Kali Yug and this was done when Shuk Dev Jee sat on the banks of the Ganges to speak it to king Pareekshit on 7 July 3072 BC. (See: At that time he explained the zodiac in the celestial sky but which is taken as reference for the Yug, the Precession, the obliquity, and the ecliptic. And even the zodiac can be seen in humans where the head is Aries and the feet are Pisces. In other words, the zodiac can be seen all over. Up to now many scholars have debated about the "invention" of the zodiac, and many of them have tried to avoid the credits to India and giving them instead to Egypt, Greece, or Mesopotamia. But in their estimation the zodiac was invented by men not beyond 2,500 BC. Aaryabhatt has calculated the entry of Kali Yug as on 18 February 3,102 BC, and we Vaishnav celebrate every year the Tithi or Moon day when the Bhaagvat Puraan was delivered 30 years after Kali Yug started.

And the same thing can be said of the Bible also which has been estimated by some to be the oldest book on earth. But for Vaishnav it is clear that the Bhaagvat Puraan is the oldest book and that the zodiac was mentioned there for the first time in Kali Yug. And Shuk Dev Jee delivered a knowledge that was known by humanity in previous Yug suggesting that the zodiac is much more older than thought by modern scholars. With this information our brains can have a more healthy point of reference and start to discard the misleading "facts" given to us for hundreds of years by people that did not really knew about the structure of the universe. The Bhaagvat explains that the Universe has 14 levels but as well that some consider only 2. (see: The upper part of the universe from Dhruv Lok to Satya Lok gives the longevity for their inhabitants according to the distance to the Sun, see: "The span of life is different on different planets, according to the planet's distance from the Sun.  In other words, by extrapolation we know the distance of Satya Lok and the longevity of Brahmaa (311,040,000 million solar years). And the same extrapolation can give the longevity in other Lok by knowing their distance as given in the Bhaagvat. But the same equation of longevity does not apply for the lower stages as if the universe is not constant, something that scientists just discovered this year. Until this year scientists thought the universe to be constant but now they have to change their theories. And not only that, but from a base on gases and gravitation that present astronomers take for the universe now they are finding evidence that the universe is electric in nature.

In this way the day is electric and the night is magnetic. The spring is electric and the autumn is magnetic. The present Maayaa calendar is magnetic and the next one is electric by being linked to the cardinal west. Kali Yug is magnetic, and Krit Yug is electric. Pisces is Magnetic, and Aquarius is electric. And like Govinda Maharaj said that the soul after departure of the body cannot enter back into its body, "Because there is no electricity in the body". This means that electricity makes possible for life to be perceived. In other words, the Precession now at 6 degrees of Pisces (which happens only once in 25,920 years), and the ending of a Maayaa calendar in this sector of the obliquity (which happens only once in 41,000 years), means a mixture of energies from the celestial sky (The Precession), and from the terrestrial sky (the obliquity).

So Shuk Dev Jee told the Bhaagvat to Raajaa Pareekshit although there were other qualified people also to tell it to him. However, in the process of delivering the Bhaagvat to the king a transformation happened and Shuk Dev Jee became a personalist, or one that can see a person behind every cosmic manifestation. The ancient Hindu, Greeks, and American tribes like the Incas, Maayaa, Aztec, etc. were also personalists, unlike the present educative system in the world that is impersonalist and therefore faulty. Thus, the Bhaagvat is the cream of the Ved and was spoken by Shuk Dev Jee in 7 days and 7 nights. So, perhaps the 5th Canto was delivered on the third day, as there are 12 Cantos and the 10th Canto is the longest one. And in fact Bhaagvat's 5.21.3 ( is the first Shlok in which the sign of Makar (Capricorn) is mentioned and as the most important. Bhaagvat's 5.21.4 Shlok gives 4 more signs and SB 5.21.4 gives another.

I will elaborate further on these 12 signs and in the position of the sidereal zodiac as described in the Bhaagvat. Although the 12 signs are described for the sidereal sky they were fit into the tropical sky and in the obliquity in very ancient times. The Maayaa knew this although they had 13 signs. But since the Maayaa people were in the school of Shukraachaarya and therefore their division of time was based on the number 13, like their 52 years century which is 13 x 4. Although other ancient cultures also knew about the obliquity like the Maayaa people did, they left orientations in their architecture waiting for the 2012 and not in a calendar form, and they followed the school of Brihaspati. Therefore their division of time was based on the number 12, like in the Brihaspati cycle of 60 years, which is 12 x 5.

The only possible argument against all this is that most scholars will take it as mythology. You did not learn about this in university and that is one of the reasons i left university in 1972. Neither architecture nor philosophy gave me the answers i was looking for. The whole educative system has been programmed on ignorance.

First, scholars said that the Ved were composed or invented at the most around 1,500 BC, but before that they were giving a date of 12th century. But they did this to satisfy their supremacy of their religion. And just like the pyramids in Bosnia, Brazil, and China are given a new perspective to the past, so astronomical positions are vindicating the age of "myths", and thus Krishn or the Kuru Kshetra War is not a myth any more, but historical facts which destroy the position of scholars. Of course, they will refuse to accept the evidence but they will be forced to do it. And we can even go further than this, as Cremo told me in Facebook that the Raamaayan tells of Raam 18 million years ago. I thought Raam appeared about one million years ago but somewhere in the Ved it says that the Raam of the Raamaayan appeared about 18 million years ago in a past Tretaa Yug. And this date is important for astrology because in the Raamaayan there are several mentions of the use of astrology.
