NOVEMBER 20, 2002: LUNAR ECLIPSE ON DEV-DIVAALI DAY - A VRAT ON THIS DAY IS BRINGS LOTS OF PUNYA
Posted by Champaklal Dajibhai Mistry on November 19, 2002

 

The current science explains eclipse as a physical phenomenon in space between three objects in space - sun, earth and moon..

..In one of six ang (limbs) of ved called jyotish ved-ang , the astronomy therein forecasts the same event which are documented in the annual vedic panchaang published in bhaarat (India)..

..jyotish ved-ang also contains mathematics for all the planetary movements and time calculations of the working of our world..

..and on top of the mathematical science, there is the aadhyaatmik (science of aatmaa or soul) part of jyotish-ved which explains the eclipses.... as the planet raahu swallowing the moon during the eclipse because of the feud that happened in vishnu-dev's second avataar of kurma (tortoise).

...in the kurma avtaar episode, after devo had obtain the immortalizing and strength giving amrut (nectar) from the churning of kshir-saagar (celestial ocean of milk), one of the asuraa took the form of a dev to drink the amrut which was denied to all asuraao who had taken part in obtaining it from kshir-saagar...however this impersonating asuraa was discovered by  chandra-dev (moon god)....in punishment vishnu-dev cut off the impersonating asuraa's head when discovered....but pardoned him by converting his head into the planet raahu...so in eternity raahu, still being mad at chandra-dev who manifests as moon, swallows him up for the period of the eclipse..

..the aadhyaatmaa or spiritual essence of this event is the part of understanding karma theory in ved whereby your fal (fruits) of karma keeps on repeating their cycles of mutual re-payment...creating karma cycles of unending dukh (pain and sorrow) unless the cycles are broken by living life according to dharma..

...to understand aadhyaatmaa of dharma , which is the science of aatmaa's (soul) operating rules and regulations,  PVAF is providing daily venue on this web site such as
