My love for Nakshatras… Well! That’s the thing I didn’t know how to describe my love for Nakshatras in plain words. So, I decided to describe it through a rhythm that I see in them. We all know that Nakshatras are a map of the stars. Of course, Nakshatras (stars) are more than merely the 27 we know and talk about in Vedic Astrology.
When I see Nakshatras, I see a pattern! What comprises of a Nakshatra? What defines Nakshatra? Is it the shape of the constellation in the sky, is it the ruling planet, is it the deity or is it the combination of all these or is it much more? In my opinion, we can’t exactly be sure of what the Vedic seers perceived them as but we can use the available data and information to extrapolate further and use same for directing our life towards our dharma.
In a recent post that I wrote on how the Grahas received their names and what did the Vedic seers who named them perceived them as, I discussed how the nomenclature could have arisen from a combination of factors such as the association of the heavenly bodies (grahas) with the elements (pancha mahabhuta), guna, gana etc. as well as the traits of the deity they were associated with or seen as the abode of. The intrinsic parts often used in jyotisha such as the rashis, devtas, dashas, grahas, mahabhutas, bhavas etc. are so interwoven that it is extremely difficult to see them in their own distinct identity. It is for this reason that when I look at a Nakshatra, I simply cannot separate the Nakshatra in various parts like its guna, gender, nature, symbol or planetary ruler etc. My view of the Nakshatra is that it is a collective image of the aspects of an astral entity as well as of several astral entities such as the grahas influencing the Nakshatra.
This book is intended for all audiences, whether one is acquainted with Nakshatras or not. After reading this book, one will have a basic understanding of the generic traits of the 27 Nakshatras as well as their deities, symbols and planetary rulers. It does not specifically deal with the Nakshatra activation techniques but I have tried to include some basic activation techniques for the benefit of the readers. It describes the basic functioning of every Nakshatra including the mythological perspective as well as the esoteric.
The purpose of this book is to spread the basic knowledge of Nakshatras to even a layman who is unaware of its concept. The study of Nakshatras has enormous scope and its emphasis has not been fully uncovered in the mundane astrology by many. This book is also intended to expand the interest of the astrology enthusiasts towards the Nakshatras.
In this book, I have tried to present the rhythm in these Nakshatras as a collective aspect of these distinct parts as stated above. To me the rhythm in these Nakshatras is like the rhythm in the mantras that make us more powerful through enlightenment!
It has been such a stimulating journey for me to conduct an independent research on every Nakshatra and to bring out a novel way of presenting their power to the world. I hope you will enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it!
