AUM is the creative principle or simply put the seed of all
creation. Just like the tree is present in the seed, similary
creation is present in this cosmic word.
A-Waking state( Jagrita)
U-Dreaming state( Nidra)
All the planets represent the various energies with respect to the 7
important chakras which are
If you have read
the BPHS, and other texts the Saptamsa(D-7) has got the 7 rasas, such as dadhi, ksheera, mada etc. All these are related to
the seven charkas/seven planets The seven planets represent the seven colours/sapta swara/sapta samudra etc, and I have talked
about them earlier also.
Now coming to states, the various energies are like electrons revolving around the core nucleus
consisting of Atma/Paramatma
(The fact that Heisenberg has proved that photons behave both like matter and energy proves
that the world is a dualistic world, consisting of Purusha/.Prakriti.)
Now the Sayanadi avasthas such as bhojana/Prakasana/Nidra/Sayana/
represent the various states of planetary activities.
To put it simply people might ask how a malefic can be bad in Bhojana
avastha to the body?
Now malefics such as Saturn and Mars represent the decay and Destruction respectively. So when their
main activity is Bhojana, it means that Vata(Saturn) or Pitta(Mars, digestive energy in stomach) is overactive and hence the
body is getting paralysed and effected
subsequently. Sayana may mean meditative state and thus Parasara said that benefics
in Sayana are good. Even though the normal meaning of Sayana is lying down, if we dig deep, we understand that Sayana means
And we know benefics still are better than panting and running(Remember ati chara example?)
Similary we have to understand
all the Sayanadi avasthas. We have to remember that fiery planets do well when in the starting degrees, Saturn in later degrees
and Jupiter/.venus in middle part of
rasis. This has to do with their natural energies.
