THE MEANING OF SIXTEEN PHASES OF MOON;- 04 FACTS;- 1-The Sun rules our soul and the Moon rules our mind. These two planets cause the lunar phases. According to Rishi Parashara, the Avatara of Lord Rama is from the Sun and that of Krishna is from the Moon. 2-Kala is a curious word. In Sanskrit, its usually used to mean time. However it more broadly means attribute. And more specifically in this context, siddhi or ability. 3-Kalas here used to “grade” avatars by the abilities they displayed. There is a list of about 64 abilities, grouped to the different levels of this scale. Krishna was said to be a 16/16 on the Kala scale of ability, a Purnavatar. Rama is suggested to be a 12 or so, and Buddha a 10 Lunar Phases. 4-Indian mythology accords the status of a Devata to Sun and Moon in the celestial court of Lord Indra. The moon is one of the most important planets in astrology. Apart from judging a person from the Lagna, Vedic astrology studies the planetary positions from the moon also. New Moon to Full Moon and back, the changing phases of the Moon rules the mind and our emotions. But Moon plays a lot deeper role in our lives than that. THE SIXTEEN PHASES OF MOON;- According to Vasistha Samhita, the following is the spiritual and cosmic significance of the phases of the moon.The Moon has 16 kalas, or phases. Out of these 15 are visible to us and the 16th is beyond our visibility. The 16 kalas are: 1.Amrita, 2.Manada, 3.Poosha, 4.Tusthi, 5.Pusthi, 6.Rati, 7.Dhruti, 8.Sasichini, 9.Chandrika, 10.Kanta, 11.Jyostna, 12.Shree, 13.Preeti, 14.Angada, 15.Poorna and 16.Poornamruta. SIXTEEN NITYAS DEVIS OF SRI YANTRA, The worship of the Nitya Devis connected with the phases of the moon is an important aspect of Tantrak worship.These 16 kalas are ruled by the 16 Nitya Devis. They are called Shodasa Nityas. They are: 1.Maha Tripura Sundari, 2.Kameswari,i;- Means “Lady of Desire” 3.Bhagamalini;- ,Means “The Flowering Yoni” 4-Nityaklinna:-Means “Wet Nitya, or Always Wet” 5.Bherunda;- 6.Vanhivasini;-Her Name meaning the dweller in fire. 7.Maha Vajreswari 8.Shivadooti (Roudri);- She is called Shivaduti because she makes Shiva her messenger (Duti). 9.Twarita 10.Kulasundari 11.Nitya 12.Neelapataka,;-Her name means Sapphire Banner 13.Vijaya;-Her name means Victorious. She brings victory in battle and success in buying and selling, hence her name, Victorious. 14.Sarvamangala;-Her name means “all auspicious” 15.Jwalamalini;- Her name means "garlanded with flames" 16.Chidroopa (Chitra);- The last Nitya in the cycle is Chitra Her name means variegated and shows the gestures granting boons and dispelling fears. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SIXTEEN NITYAS DEVIS OF SRI YANTRA;- 18 FACTS;- 1-In the Sri Chakra these 15 nityas are present in the innermost circle, and the Devi is in the central bindu.The ancient scriptures Srividya Vilasam and Mantra Ratnakaram have specified that the 15 Nityas must be worshiped in the Srichakra central triangle, anticlockwise, and the 16th Nitya, Maha Tripura Sundari must be worshiped in the Bindu. 2- Maha Tripura Sundari is the Devi Para Shakti herself, and hence the kala ruled by her is not visible to the normal mortals. Hence we see only the other 15 kalas or phases ruled by the other nityas. 3-These 15 Nityas rule the famous 15 letters Devi mantra known as Panchadasakshari Mantra: Ka E Aie La Hreem Ha Sa Ka Ha La Hreem Sa Ka La Hreem 4-These 15 Nityas in the form of the 15 Tithis (Phases) have two aspects each – Prakashamsa, which rules the day portion of the Tithi, and Vimarshamsa, which rules the night part of the Tithi. At night they collect the divine nectar and during the day they release it. 5-On Poornima or full moon day all the 15 Nityas are in the moon and the moon is shining brightly. On the 1st Thithi after the Poornima, i.e., Pratipada, one Nitya leaves the moon and goes to the sun and the moon is reduced slightly in size. On the next Dwiteeya Tithi another Nitya leaves the moon and goes to the sun and the moon is further reduced in size. This way they leave one by one till the moon becomes totally dark on the 15th day, which is called Amavasya or the new moon day. This is known as Krishna Paksha or the waning phase. 6-After Amavasya they return one by one on each Tithi and the moon starts shining again till its full on the Poornima when the last Nitya returns to it. This is called Shukla Paksha. Mata Kameswari to Mata Chitra are the Nityas ruling the Krishna Paksha Tithis from Pratipada to Amavasya. In Shukla Paksha the order of the Nityas is reversed, i.e., Mata Chitra to Kameswari. 7-The Nitya of the Asthami or 8th Tithi, Twarita, is common and constant to both the Pakshas. Hence she adorns the crown of Devi. 8-The inner triangle of Sri Chakra is known as the Sarva Siddhiprada Chakra and the Nityas are next only to Tripura Sundari in importance. Let us know that , Mata Kameswari is Goddess Parvati, Vajreswari is Maha Lakshmi and Bhagamalini is Goddess Saraswati . 9-One Krishna Paksha and one Shukla Paksha form a 30-day lunar month. 12 such months form a 360-day lunar year. Multiplied by 2 (the day and night aspects of the Nityas/Tithis) we have 720 aspects of the Nitya Devis in a year. This way, they rule the day, the night, the days, months, seasons and the years. Furthermore, each aspect of a Nitya rules 100 Nadis in our body. This way they rule the 72000 Nadies in our body, with ever changing moods and physical results in human lives. 10-The Nityas or Eternities of Mata Lalita represent the fifteen lunar days or tithis of the waxing Moon.Each Nitya has her own vidya (that is mantra), yantra and group of energies (Shaktis).The full circle of the Nityas also represents the 21,600 breaths a human being takes in a full day and night. As such, the Nityas are the Kalachakra, or the Wheel of Time. 11-The 15 Nityas are modifications of Mata Lalita with her three gunas and her five elements of ether, air, fire, water and earth. As the moon remains itself, though appearing differently according to phase, so too does Ma Lalita. 12-The 15 lunar tithis, are to be regarded as identical with the fifteen Nityas (Ma Kameshvari to Chitra). The sixteenth Kala called Sadakhya should be viewed as one with Mata Lalita or the Supreme Deity Herself. In other words, one has to feel that what appears in Kalachakra is nothing but an expression of what exists eternally as Nityas in the supreme Sri Chakra itself. 13-The tithi-chakra or the wheel of time is constantly revolving and the Sri Chakra is within it and not without. It should also be remembered that from the standpoint of an esoteric yogin the tithis are in the last analysis to be identified with the 21600 shvasas (breaths) supposed to be the average number of breaths per day of a normal human being.” 14-Hence Lalita or Tripurasundari is the 16th day or full moon, with her 15 digits. Each of the Nityas has a certain number of arms, the totality of arms (= rays) of the whole circle being 108. Because any unit of time is taken as a microcosm or parallel of any other valid unit, each of the fifteen Nityas thus has 1,440 breaths. This identity between space, time, Tripurasundari and the individual is elaborated at great length in the Tantraraja Tantra. 15-The Nityas are the vowels of the Sanskrit alphabet and are identical with both time and space. For example, if the number of tattvas or consonants (36) are multiplied by the 16 Nityas the number of letters is 576. The multiples of this number provide the number of years in the different Yugas. So the circle of the matrikas and the Nityas is identical with the sidereal zodiac as well as mantra. 16-Shiva says that in the centre of the world is the Meru, outside of this being the seven oceans and beyond this the Kalachakra or wheel of time which moves in a clockwise direction by the power of Iccha (Will) Shakti. The circle is divided by 12 spokes and the planets or grahas are within this. 17-Lalita, says the tantra, is in the Meru, while 14 Nityas from Kameshvari to Jvalamalini reside in the seven islands and seven oceans. Chitra, who is the 16th Nitya, occupies supreme Space or Paramavyoma. 18-In the Dakshinamurti Samhita, the Nityas are identified with kalas or parts of the different stages of deep sleep, dreaming, waking, and full consciousness or Turiya. Here it is said that the Nityas, including Lalita, are the 16 parts of the continuum of consciousness, while the 17th Kala is beyond all of this. Each of the Nityas has the respective vowel letter associated with her mantra vidya. SIXTEEN DIRECTIONS OF HUMAN BODY;- A-According to Bhavanopanishad ,'' the Human Body is to be conceived as the Sri Chakra, being the expression of one's own self. (Svatma). This means that while on the one hand the Body is to be regarded as non-different from the atma, the entire cosmic system associated with the body should also be viewed in the same light. This outer system in its manifestation rests on Time (kala), Space (deha) and a combination of the two. B-MahaVastu divides our Space (home, office or factory) in 16 parts termed as 16 MahaVastu Zones, each of which governs certain aspects of your life;Same is in our body also..If the space built by us is imbalanced,then effect is clearly visible on our body also. 1-CROWN CHAKRA/TALU ;-The Brahmasthan;centre of energy/Space Element 2-NORTH EAST : (ISHANYA KON);-the head of our body 3-SOUTH WEST (NAIRUTYA KON);-the feet of our body 4-NORTH ; Left shoulder 5-EAST ;-Right shoulder 6-SOUTH EAST ( AGNEYA KON ):-the limbs of Right side i.e.elbows & knees 7-NORTH WEST (VAYU KON ):-the limbs of Left side i.e.elbows & knees 8-WEST;-the Left thigh & calf 9-SOUTH;-the Right thigh & calf NOTE;-In the same manner left seven directions can be decided. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SPACE BUILT BY HUMAN BEINGS;- 03 FACTS;- 1-Man makes structures and buildings to perform certain functions in a building. As soon as space is enclosed, it starts behaving as a scaled down model of the Universe. Different energy-fields emerge automatically. These energy-fields react with human consciousness. They alter, blend and redirect consciousness as per their own attributes. 2-There are 45 such major energy-fields in a building that control and influence consciousness . These energy-fields are termed as Devtas in Sanskrit. The meaning of the word Dev is, 'the one who is self-Illuminating'. As per the property of the energy-field, their names were derived. In a building, the combination of 45 Devtas is called Vastu Purush Mandala the one who is carrying 45 energy fields is Vastu Dev.Every building is governed by energy-fields which are termed as Devtas, these comprise a vital element of MahaVastu. 3-The presence of these Devtas has been felt at a specific place in any building. Exactly the same form of energy (corresponding to a Devta) gets developed in exactly the same portion/place/space, in a building, when it is constructed, forming a grid, which has been termed as Vastu Purush Mandala...CONTD.. ...SHIVOHAM....
