Like many other terminologies, “rAshi” is also completely misunderstood in modern astrology. It typically is used to indicate one of the 12 (zodiac?) segments and hence starts the concept of janma rAshi or the sign under which you are born etc. So, minA rAshi is commonly translated as the pisces zodiac sign. I do not believe this is the case. rAshi means “multitude” in Sanskrit and I believe this is exactly what… Read More

As I had indicated in my previous blog “Why we should not be eager to become a space faring species?“, we should let the obscurity in the knowledge of the objects external to our earth remain obscure. As I had indicated, the tools that we have currently to detect and understand the various observable parameters present are limited to the material properties of the observables. Do we really just want to discover… Read More

Which direction am I moving? This seems a very strange question to ask right! But, bear with me. In modern science we have it very clear. We have a past, a present and a future. We are moving from the past into the future where events that have started becoming complete their progress and hence “become” a past. But, is it as simple as that? But, before we go into examining this… Read More

As I had written in the blog on “Explaining the physics of motion“, the motion that we all experience and play with, i.e., movement from one physical location to another physical location is similar to movement within an airplane while the airplane itself is moving towards a destination. Our motion within the airplane makes no difference to the velocity of the airplane. It can also be seen similar to the motion of… Read More

As I have indicated in my book “A research of Shiva: The Enigma“, Shiva, Isha, Rudra and the various other references used to “indicate Shiva” are completely different from each other. The reason all these tend to indicate the same concept is because of the projection of the higher dimensions onto a lower dimension of reality. For example, if a cube is drawn on a 2D paper, then the depth dimension is… Read More

In modern science we recognise too many forces. But there are four fundamental forces that are recognised. Gravity, electromagnetic force, nuclear force(weak and strong). It is also suggested that these can be unified into a single force which manifests in different forms, yet the unification is far from explainable by our science. Moreover, forces in modern science only explains the observable matter and effects on this observed matter. So, what is the… Read More

I had written in the previous blog about the differences between data-accumulation systems and logic based system. I had further said how the reality around us can be considered to be an accumulation of data, where “the changes” can be considered as data. As these changes or data accumulate, paths get created sustained and extended, thus forming paths of existence that get rendered in various descriptive forms in this reality around us…. Read More

In the modern world, we have created computers that applies processing to data and modifies input data according to the applied processing. Meaning, if we have two data, say “2” and “3”, to this we apply a simple processing of say mathematical addition, we get a modified output data as “5”. Now, we can create a processing function called “mathematical addition” as an abstract version of this logic with variables to represent… Read More

As I have written in the first part 1, astrology should have been an application of the science described in these Sanskrit literatures. Given that these literatures describes how manifestation occurs from that truth, creating a map of the individual paths of observables using this described science is equivalent to predicting the future(what we call future) which is astrology. If, these maps created can be appropriately transformed to show how this reality… Read More

As I had written in the blog “Astrology – technology of ancient science – part 1“, given that ancient Sanskrit literature deals with manifestation of the un-manifested truth into this reality around us, we should be able to apply the described science to map all paths that are considered to be the existences in this reality. In these paths mapped if we are able to locate the path related to a single… Read More
