Such divisional groupings are characteristic of Vedic astrology and are little used in Greek astrology. The fire altar is not only an image of time but of space and of consciousness. Note particularly pp. Item Code: NAV628.

The order for the first 9 nakshatras are Ketu, Shukra(Venus), Surya(Sun), Chandra(Moon), Mangala(Mars), Rahu, Guru(Jupiter), Shani(Saturn) and Budha(Mercury). The sun in its travels crosses over these, which are like lines of longitude. 324 is also 108 X 3. Their equation was an approximation. It is integral to this entire system, particularly for constructing fire altars, which was probably the most important and complex aspect of Vedic thought.

PO Box 8357, Santa Fe NM 87504, USA It is generally thought in the West that the zodiac of 360 degrees and 12 signs is an invention of Babylonian thought and was brought to India by the Greeks after the time of Alexander (after 300 BCE). Vedic astrology divides the 12 signs into smaller divisions. Satapatha Brahmana specifically relate it to the eastern direction. In addition the total number of hymns in the first four books (191+43+62+58) equals 354 or the total number of days in a year of twelve lunar months (12 X 29.5 days), thus further affirming the astronomical nature of the code. It is probably the latter because the division of the zodiac into 720 parts is easier to calculate mathematically than 729 and is more important because of its correlation with the days and nights and the sun. While modern scholarship has generally dated this text around 800 BCE, recent new discoveries in India, like that of the Sarasvati river,**1 may push this time back much further.

Chanted by Guru P R Iyer The Upanakshatras are the same the subtlest or sixty fold division (Sastiamsa), with 12 X 60 = 720 just like the Upanakshatras.

Satapatha Brahmana clearly notes them as “rays” and “directions,” giving them a spatial orientation and equates them with the Upanakshatras furthering making them into divisions of a zodiac.

Each Nakshatra reflects certain wishes or desires that those born under them are inclined to have. This is a misunderstanding. In fact 720 itself is not the number of the days and nights of the year, which the Vedic people also knew, but used because of its mathematical value for dividing up the sky. While these 720 rays and directions or streams are equated with the days and nights of the year, they clearly have a spatial existence as well.

Such information as in this paper suggests that the Vedic level of calculation relative to time, space and the stars, was much higher than generally acknowledged and may have had a greater influence on other cultures than yet properly considered, perhaps extending to Babylonian, Egyptian and Greek thought in which modern scholars, not knowing the Vedic information, generally see the origins of a zodiac of 360 degrees. The rituals were various ways of following the cosmos and its rhythms through time and space. i.1.2.1). “Agni is uk, his offerings are tham. Emotions are most connected to Prana in yogic thought and have their roots in pranamaya kosha, the Pranic sheath or covering that mediates between body and mind. Its basis above are the creatures to be healed. Moreover the total number of hymns in the Rg Veda is 1017, which is 324 times Pi. In other words a zodiac of 360 or 720 divisions was known in the late Vedic period long before any contact with Greek astronomy or even much of Babylonian astronomy. 27 X 27 equals 729, not merely 720, is this not merely poor mathematics, an incapacity even to accomplish simple multiplication? The sun is surrounded by three hundred and sixty directions and gives forth three hundred and sixty rays that relate to these directions. The mantras of Samhitas are mostly written in verse, meaning, in the form of poetry or hymns whereas the Brahmanas are predominantly in prose. 3) Taittiriya Brahmana with the commentary of Bhatta Bhaskara (complete).

The normal way of using the Nakshatras is to first examine their general meaning and second to look into the particular Nakshatra pada or quarter of the Nakshatra (a division of 3 degees and 20 minutes or 200 minutes), which have their subset of planetary rulers.
