Vishnu Once in 6480 Years Astronomy Precession Equinoxes

It is said that who does certain Yagas like the Aswamedha Yagas successfully becomes an Indra, dethroning the present incumbent.

Severe penance also warrants these results.

So Indra disturbs those who engage in these activities.

Now coming to Astronomy.

Time takes a toll on everything in the Universe.

If affects people and non living things.

People age so also the Rocks etc.

There are two aspects of Time, one is so minute that you do not notice it and the changes effected by it, like Micro seconds, nano seconds and seconds,minutes.

Even changes that occur hourly can be known only with the help of special instruments.

The other aspect of Time is it is so huge to be comprehended, like a light year or AU, Astronomical Unit that is equal to the distance traveled by Light in a Year.

One can not see this as this is a huge number and one may not be alive to see the change by oneself.

Such huge numbers are involved in the Universe in respect of formation of Stars,Galaxies .

Now all of us know the Earth has two movements, one spinning on its own Axis and another moving around the Sun.

The movement around the Sun’s signs by the earth is so slow that it is not noticeable.

Also because of the movement of the Earth and the Stars and other Celestial objects these objects change their relative places.

To put it simply, Stars change positions as also the Earth, taking the Sun as a reference point.

That the Sun also moves and there are many Suns is a different issue and I shall be posting on the implications.

Hinduism and Indian Philosophy have Scared Texts and legends.

 

The texts are both allegorical and facts.

 

For instance, the description of Patala refers to the physical location of a place inside/underneath the earth, it also denotes a stage of mental degradation.

Similarly the Saptha Rishi Mandal, or the Great Bear Constellation is a fact and it also refers to the Rishis of yore.

 

The Pole Star is Dhruva. the Loka granted by Vishnu to the Child Dhruva.

 

The astronomical events are cloaked in legends and Puranas.

What is unique is that they are real and also allegorical in describing celestial events.

 

Let us look into some of these.

 

The Post of Indra, the chief of Devas and Dhruva is ex officio.

 

Indra changes in every Yuga, that is the Post of Indra is constant while the person who occupies the place changes.

 

It is said that who does certain Yagas like the Aswamedha Yagas successfully becomes an Indra, dethroning the present incumbent.

 

Severe penance also warrants these results.

 

So Indra disturbs those who engage in these activities.

This movement of the Earth in the Zodiacal Signs of the Sun is called the Precession of the Equinoxes.

 

Put it simply the Stars change places over a period of Time(long time)

 

The Pole Star, the Dhruva Nakshatra is taken as a reference in Hinduism and it changes its place once in approximately 26000 years.

 

This corresponds to one basic Yuga, the Kali Yuga.

 

According to Vishnu Purana Dhruva changes  every Yuga like Indra, Saptha Rishis(Great Bear Constellation), along with the others in the Universe .

 

And the ten Avatars of Vishnu represent these Celestial changes.

 

“THE PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOXES is what determines the movement of the Ages backwards through the constellations. It can be understood through the analogy of the Earth spinning like a top, with the Sun and Moon pulling on its equatorial bulge. This gravitational influence creates a wobble, resulting in the precession or the shifting of the equinoctial points with respect to the stars. The north celestial pole describes a small circle with a radius of 23.5 degrees around the north ecliptic pole, with a consequent westward drift of the equinoxes – the two points where the celestial equator crosses the ecliptic. This is not to be confused with the movement of the Earth respective to the ecliptic of the Sun that occurs every year around March 21st, a movement that ever recurs on that date. What is here spoken of is the greater circle upon which the “ayanamsha” or ‘ascendant of the Earth’ is traced, and which coincides with the annual equinoctial point every 25,920 years. Set against the backdrop of the Zodiac, it takes the Earth 25, 920 years to make a “Complete Round” of the 12 astrological signs and 2,160 years to complete one astrological Age….

 

The Precessional Cycle was described by the Greek astronomer Hipparchus, in the Second century BC. but it seems to have been known in the ancient Vedic culture as well. In past millennia, astrologer priests known as Rishis developed precise formulas for calculating the cosmic cycles, and wove their celestial equations into the fabric of their myths and legends. Principal among these cosmological parables was the “Line of Ten Avatars”. According to tradition, Vishnu, one of the principle deities of the Hindu trinity takes birth at particular points in the cosmic cycle which correspond to the earth’s passage through the ‘Fixed’ zodiacal ages. Vishnu appears every 6,480 years at the commencement of the signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. He appears at the behest of a suffering world and comes to destroy evil and injustice and reestablish the eternal truths of the Sanatana Dharma. The Bhagavad Gita, one of India’s most sacred scriptures, reveals something of this cosmic process in Krishna’s dialogue with Arjuna. Krishna tells his disciple:

‘Whenever the world declineth in virtue and righteousness; and vice and injustice mount the throne, then cometh I, the Lord and revisit my world in visible form, and mingleth as a man with men, and by my influence and teachings do I destroy the evil and injustice and reestablish virtue and righteousness. Many times have I thus appeared, and many times hereafter shall I come again.’…

Inter Galactic Rocks Mexico?

Notwithstanding being cold shouldered-by the Scientists ,UFO, Alien information is flooding.

As I have been lamenting for sometime now, the Scientists do not seem to have the inclination to check the veracity of the information, for fear of the information being proved correct.


Notwithstanding  being cold shouldered-by the Scientists ,UFO, Alien information is flooding.

As I have been lamenting for sometime now, the Scientists do not seem to have the inclination to check the veracity of the information, for fear of the information being proved correct.

Now there are reports that Alien rocks were found in Mexico and as usual, I expect NASA denial to rush through.

Story:

Rocks suspeted to be from Aliiens.
Alien Rocks.

Alien rocks, from Planet Gootan, were discovered in Mexico.

The rocks were found in the state of Sonora.  Experts from the U.N. Panel of Extraterrestrials have identified the rocks as being from Planet Gootan.  ”They are definitely Gootan rocks.  No doubt about it,” said Dr. John Malley, the head of the U.N. Panel on Extraterrestrials.

Some thought that the rocks had fallen from a dump truck. They were wrong.  They fell from outer space.  Some thought that the smell was gas, but it’s not… it’s a radioactive, intergalactic substance know as Gooboplasm.

The U.N. is carefully going to study the rock.  The U.S. military is getting involved as well.  ”We are concerned that the rocks may be weaponized, so we are taking every precaution,” said a representative from the Defense Department.

The rocks contained phosphorite, a chemical chain reaction that could have ignited them as they were been subjected to friction.Phosphorus in rocks, or phosphorite, is usually deposited by sediment – dissolved phosphorus from continental weathering that is brought to the oceans by rivers and streams.

COSMIC DAWN IN A NUTSHELL

Cosmologists have shown that the Universe began in a hot, dense, and featureless state about 13.7 billion years ago. The Universe we observe today, however, is rich with structures such as galaxies, the product of billions of years of expansion, cooling, and gravity.

The era between 380,000 and 100 million years after “the Big Bang” is called the cosmic dark ages; a time before the first stars formed to light up the Universe. Between 100 million to 1 billion years after the Big Bang, primordial gas collapsed gravitationally into galaxies, where it cooled and compressed enough to form the first stars, ending the dark ages. Light from these first galaxies ripped apart (“re-ionized”) and heated hydrogen atoms in the inter-galactic gas that filled the Universe. This “feedback” impacted future galaxy and star formation and left observable imprints which astronomers are just now beginning to detect. Understanding this epoch of reionization and first light is a key goal in Cosmology and Astrophysics.

Black Hole Destroying Matter Photos Videos


Phenomenon that is causing awe and least understood is Black Hole.

It is said to be so dense that it does not allow even the light rays to escape and its presence is inferred.

They swallow matter.

A rare photo of Black hole  destroying matter is captured.

Here they are:

Cosmic Journeys : The Largest Black Holes in the Universe

 

 

Black holes may be the most ironic objects in the Universe. They are objects with gravity so fierce that if you venture too close, literally no force in the Universe can prevent you from falling in. Not even light can escape, which is why we call them what we do.

Yet they also power the brightest objects in the Universe. As matter falls in, it forms a diskjust outside the black hole that gets infernally hot, blasting out radiation bright enough that it can be seen across the Universe. Not only that, due to forces in the disk like friction and magnetism ramped up to mind-numbing intensities, this disk can focus and blast out two incredibly powerful beams of matter and energy which scream out into space, forming structures both vast and beautiful … like the ones seen in the galaxy Hercules A:

eriously, grab the embiggened version of that. It’s stunning. I’m using it as my computer’s desktop image, in fact. There’s also an incredible 5000 x 3500 pixel version.

In the heart of the galaxy Hercules A is a monster black hole: It’s about 600 times as massive as the black hole in the center of our Milky Way, making it about 2.5 billion times the Sun’s mass. It’s one of the largest known black holes in the Universe, so big we call it “supermassive.”

And it’s hungry. Material is actively funneling down into the maw of that beast, forming a huge disk and blasting out those jets of material you can see in the picture (which is a combination of visible light seen by the Hubble Space Telescope and radio waves—colored pink in the image—detected by the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array). Focused tightly, those jets march across space at ridiculously high speed, slamming into material around them. Eventually they lose enough energy that they slow and puff outward, forming those twin lobes. When this happens, the material emits light in the radio part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The lobes of Herc A make it one of the brightest sources of radio waves in the entire sky.

The scale of this will turn your brain into goo: Those lobes are well over 1.5 million light years across from tip to tip, 15 times the size of our entire galaxy! And they’re powerful, emitting a billion times the energy our Sun does at radio wavelengths. The energy flowing out of Hercules A is simply insane. In X-rays alone it blasts out 100 billion times as much energy as our Sun does in all wavelengths of light. Replace our Sun with an object that bright and the Earth would vaporize.

Milky Way Rushing Hurtling for Collision Images,Video

On the one hand the Space is reported to be expanding and on the other hand the objects in the Universe are heading for collision by pulling each other because of their Gravitational pull.

Universe expands t the level of Space and the Objects are converging, becoming larger and thus relatively less in number.

Again new Stars are being born, thus increasing the numbers.

Totally contradicting in Nature for us to understand.

I am reminded of the Upanishad’s Statements on Reality.

‘It is neither big nor small,It is neither tall nor short,It is everywhere, yet nowhere’

Sounded to me confusing.

What can I comprehend about these astronomical findings!

Only that Human mind can not comprehend Nature/Reality.

NASA astronomers announced Thursday they can now predict with certainty the next major cosmic event to affect our galaxy, sun, and solar system: the titanic collision of our Milky Way galaxy with the neighboring Andromeda galaxy.

The Milky Way is destined to get a major makeover during the encounter, which is predicted to happen four billion years from now. It is likely the sun will be flung into a new region of our galaxy, but our Earth and solar system are in no danger of being destroyed.
“Our findings are statistically consistent with a head-on collision between the Andromeda galaxy and our Milky Way galaxy,” said Roeland van der Marel of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore.

The solution came through painstaking NASA Hubble Space Telescope measurements of the motion of Andromeda, which also is known as M31. The galaxy is now 2.5 million light-years away, but it is inexorably falling toward the Milky Way under the mutual pull of gravity between the two galaxies and the invisible dark matter that surrounds them both.
