Heavenly Trail,Photo by Thomas Zimmer1 NE’ER is he injured whom the Gods Varuṇa, Mitra, Aryaman,

A photograph taken by Thomas Zimmer has become viral and has been doing the round on September 8th, 2012 in his blog had 1.6 Million hits..

Some one called it Heavenly Trail and it is incorrect or the following information is true either.

“There’s this place in Ireland where every two years, the stars line up with this trail on June 10th to June 18th. It’s called Heaven’s Trail.””

I refreshed my  memory whether Sanatana Dharma has something to say on this Heavenly Show.

Hinduism refers to Milky way in three ways.

One is that it is the Milk of Ocean where Lord Vishnu Eternally resides.

I have posted an article on this explaining that Vishnu’s Navel Galaxy is hinted here and Surya Siddhanta uses this in Astronomical calculations.

“Hindu Astronomy, which is intricately linked to Indian Philosophy(in Hinduism all these are intricately interwoven) calls the Center of our Universe,Galaxy)  as Vishnu Nabhi, the navel of Lord Vishnu.’

The Galactic center. In our home galaxy, the Galactic Center corresponds to an area of space between the constellations of Scorpio and Sagittarius, its critical points are in the Gandanta degrees of these signs.

The other reference is  to Aryaman , a Vedic God.

We use this in Shanti Mantra with many not knowing who Aryaman is.

Sanno mithrah Sama Vaunah,

Sanno Bhavath Aryaman.

Aryaman is referred to in the Rig Veda as follows.

 

The excellently wise, protect.
2 He prospers ever, free from scathe, whom they, as with full hands, enrich,
Whom they preserve from every foe.
3 The Kings drive far away from him his troubles and his enemies,
And lead him safely o’er distress.
4 Thornless, Ādityas, is the path, easy for him who seeks the Law:
With him is naught to anger you.
5 What sacrifice, Ādityas, ye Heroes guide by the path direct,—
May that come nigh unto your thought.
6 That mortal, ever unsubdued, gains wealth and every precious thing,
And children also of his own.
7 How, my friends, shall we prepare Aryaman’s and Mitra’s laud,
Glorious food of Varuṇa?
8 I point not out to you a man who strikes the pious, or reviles:
Only with hymns I call you nigh.
9 Let him not love to speak ill words: but fear the One who holds all four
Within his hand, until they fall. -Rig Veda Hymn XLI Varuna Mitra Aryaman

Aryaman (अर्यमन्‌, pronounced as “aryaman”; nominative singular is aryama) is one ofthe early Vedic deities. His name signifies “bosom friend”, “play-fellow” or “companion”.He is the third son of Aditi, the mother of the Adityas. In the RigVeda Aryaman is described as the protector of mares, and the Milky Way (aryamṇáḥ pánthāḥ) is said to be his path. Aryaman is commonly invoked together with Varuna-Mitra, Bhaga, Bṛhaspati, and other Adityas and Asuras. According to Griffith, the Rig Veda also suggests that Aryaman is a supreme deity alongside Mitra and Varuna.

The Hindu marriage oaths are administered with an invocation to Aryaman being the witness to the event.

Aryaman is also known to be the friend of the Pitrus, the departed.

anantascasmi naganam

varuno yadasamaham |

pitrunamaryama casmi

yamah samyamatamaham |

-Bhagavad Gita

Among cobras I am Ananta, Sesha; among aquatic beings, I am Varuna; among manes I am Aryaman and among controllers I am Yama.

 

* (i) “naganam”: Apte’s dictionary gives the meaning ‘cobra’, which is poisonous. Sridhara says a naga is a non-poisonous snake. Ramanuja and Madhva say just ‘many headed’.

 

* (ii) “yadasam”= ‘water deities’ according to Sivanada and Chidbavananda. ‘aquatic beings’ according to Srdhara and Apte’s dictionary.

 

* (iii) Aryaman is the foremost of the pitrus.

 

*(iv) “samyamatam” = ‘of those who punish’-Ramanuja;

            ‘of those that govern ‘- Madhva;

            ‘of regulators’ – Sridhara;

            ‘of controllers, dispensers of justice’ – Chidbavananda;

            of those who maintain law & order – Dr. Radhakrishna.

The third is that it is called the Akash Ganga, Heavely Ganges (River)

Vishnu’s Foot Prints in The Sky Garuda


Yes.

 

It is Lord Vishnu‘s footprint in the sky.

 

The foot print of Lord Vishnu is found in Gaya and some other places as well.

 

The footprint of Vishnu is a streaming scattered group of Stars int he Milky-way Galaxy.

 

Here it is.

 

Aquila, Alshain in Constellation.jpg

Aquila, Alshain in Constellation.

 

Altair. In the great astrological tradition of India, Altair represents the footprints of Vishnu, preserver and protector of the Universe.

 

 

Altair (Alpha Aquilae, Alpha Aql, α Aquilae, α Aql, Atair) is the brightest star in the constellation Aquila and the twelfth brightest starin the night sky. It is currently in the G-cloud.[9][10] Altair is an A-type main sequence star with an apparent visual magnitude of 0.77 and is one of the vertices of the Summer Triangle (the other two vertices are marked by Deneb and Vega).[2][7][11]

Altair rotates rapidly, with a velocity at the equator of approximately 286 km/s.[nb 3][4] A study with the Palomar Testbed Interferometer revealed that Altair is not spherical, but is flattened at the poles due to its high rate of rotation.[12] Otherinterferometric studies with multiple telescopes, operating in the infrared, have imaged and confirmed this phenomenon.(wiki)

In classical mythology Aquila, and by extension Altair as well, was an eagle favored by Zeus. He played a part in numerous myths, including the abduction of Ganymede in which a young boy (Ganymede) is carried off to Mount Olympus on Zeus’ command to become the cupbearer to the gods. In another myth Aquila is the eagle that torments Prometheus, and is shot with a poisoned arrow by Hercules.

In India, Altair with its two flanking stars, Beta and Gamma (Tarazed and Alshain), are sometimes thought to be the celestial footprints of the god Vishnu.

Altair is separated from the similar-looking (but brighter) star Vega in the constellation Lyra by the great starlit band of the Milky Way. In Asia, this hazy band across our sky is known as the Celestial River. One story common in China, Japan and Korea a young herdsman (Altair) who falls in love with a celestial princess (Vega), who weaves the fabric of heaven. The princess became so enamored of the herdsman that she neglects her weaving duties. This acts enrages the princess’s father, the Celestial Emperor, who decrees that the herdsman must stay away from his daughter, on the opposite side of the River. The Emperor finally listened to the princess’s pleas, however, and allowed the herdsman to cross the Celestial River once per year, on the seventh day of the seventh month.

Altair is only 16.8 light-years away from Earth, making it one of our nearer stellar neighbors. At least two features of the star Altair make it distinctive.

First, Altair rotates rapidly. This star requires only about 10 hours to spin once on its axis, in contrast to 24 hours for our Earth to spin or roughly a month for our sun. In other words, this mighty star spins on its axis more rapidly than Earth! This rapid rotation tends to flatten the star a bit, much as a pizza crust flattens as it spins. Estimates are roughly that Altair’s flattening is about 14 percent. The sun also is an oblate spheroid, although its flattening is difficult to measure due to the low rotation rate.

108 Vishnu Places Of Pilgrimage Divya Desams


Though the Vedas insist that the reality is a Principle, it allows worship of personal God,Ishwara.

Srivilliputur Temple Gopuram.

Divya Desam Srivilliputhur.

For Realization, the contribution of the Gd is necessary.

Even for the Karma to take effect God is necessary,Adi Shankaracharya avers.

This personal God differs from individuals to individuals, depending on their dispositions and their tendency towards a particular trait or emotion.

So you can worship God as Male, Female or an impersonal image, Linga.

It could be worshiped  as one would a Child, Father, Mother,Friend, Love or even as a Foe!

Later came the Agamas, where collective worship was stressed(which is not in the Vedas).

The Agamas laid down Rules for Construction of Temples, sanctifying them with Mantras and the daily Rituals to be followed.

Some great Temples were built and they are in existence even today with Pooja being offered as laid sown by the Agamas.

Of the three principal Deities,Lord Shiava and Lord Vishnu have the maximum number of Temples.

Of these some are considered more Sacred than the others.

These Temples are called Punya Kshetras.

Legend lists 108 such temples for Lord Vishnu.

Though it said to be organised by the Azhwars,the savants of Vaishnavism,these places trace their origin to ancient times and are referred to in The Purans.

The Deities of the Temples have been praised and poems were composed on them.

These places of Pilgrimages are called the Divya Kshetras,

Of the 108, two, The Thirupaarkkadal, wich alludes to the Milky Way Galaxy and Vaikunta, which is a Space location are not located in the Earth.

The First Divadesam is Sriranagam, the second being Srivilliputhur.

Being from Srivillputhur I would cal it as the first for Vishnu came in search of Andal while people seek him!

Gravity, Film Review,For The Discerning,


It is very difficult to take a film based on Space sans gimmicks , laser gun wielding characters and keep the audience engaged for about 140 Minutes.

A Film on Gravity.

Gravity, Movie.

If the story line is about losing oneself cutoff from Communication network from anywhere deep in Space, totally at the mercy of Technology, which can fail against the smallest idiosyncrasies of Nature,,well even imagination is bound to fail.

Yet,Gravity does just that ‘conceptualizing beyond the Human Mind and execution beyond technology, that is Human Creativity plus technology.

One is overwhelmed while rating the film, Rate it the Best for Photography,Special Effects. Editing, Music,Script,Dialogues Acting,Direction,or the Best film of all times in this Genre.

A crew aboard a Mission craft are left stranded in Space because of malfunction and the escape routes are blocked by falling man-made Satellite debris, which cuts off all communications,

How the issue is resolved forms the story.

As I have indicated in my earlier post before viewing the film, one does know how to react when lost in Space when you get disoriented.

What is the frame of reference?

The fear of Death seems trivial when compared to the primordial fear of the vastness of  Space.

The film is both psychological and scientific though not a documentary.

The Director steers clear of commercializing the Movie and at the same has not made this a documentary.

The result is a gripping film with a tight script and excellent acting from Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

The script, what can one say?

One word ‘outstanding’, scientific, early, dry humor  breezy, all at the same time.

Ina all a film for the discerning .

Only yesterday I was telling my son that my favorite film on any day on Space is  Spielberg’s  Close Encounters of the Third Kind  for its original thought on communication with the extra terrestria,l despite the fact that there have been movies on the subject.

Well, now My favorite has changed-Gravity.

Trivia.

Why does the earth look like Milky way Galaxy in one shot?

Why does Gravity does not get mentioned even once in the Movie?

The film seems to be more about Space than gravity?

is this has been named as Gravity because the tag Gravity is more catchy?

Extraterrestrial Documented Film Video.


The search for Extra terrestrial  is getting curiouser and curiouser.

UFO and ET news and sightings never die down.

Scientists steadfastly refuse to accept evidence at all nor are they willing to examine the available information without bias.

Now more news.

You may watch the Video.

Extraterrestrial.

There is a full Documentary available in the Link provided.

Last autumn, the Templeton Foundation, a philanthropic organisation dedicated to investigating what it calls the “big questions” – which, unsurprisingly, include “Are we alone?” – awarded Marcy $200,000 to pursue his search for alien civilisations.

As far as Marcy, an official Nasa researcher for the Kepler mission, is concerned, that question has a clear answer: “The universe is simply too large for there not to be another intelligent civilisation out there. Really, the proper question is: ‘How far away is our nearest intelligent neighbour?’ They could be 10 light years, 100 light years, a million light years or more. We have no idea.”

To answer that question Marcy has begun to sift through the Kepler data and to search the heavens for a galactic laser internet that might be in use somewhere out there. (More on that in a bit.)

Launched in 2009, Kepler was designed as a four-year mission to detect planets – habitable or otherwise – around distant stars by measuring the dimming of those stars as orbiting bodies pass in front of them. In May, a component of the spacecraft designed to keep it pointing precisely failed, dealing a crushing blow to Marcy and his colleagues who last year convinced Nasa to extend funding for the mission into 2016, which Marcy says would have allowed researchers to further refine the number of known Earthlike planets in our galactic neighbourhood.

“It’s a heartbreaker,” he says. “People are reacting a little bit as if a close family member died. There’s this combination of severe depression and confusion, coupled with denial.”

Kepler has been wildly successful in its four years. To date, it has found 132 exoplanets – that is, planets outside our solar system – and possibly 3,216 more that await confirmation. Researchers have extrapolated from Kepler data that our Milky Way galaxy alone contains at least 100bn exoplanets, as many planets as there are stars. Still, with the telescope – which is 64m km from Earth – having collected data on 150,000 star systems, researchers are only beginning to pick through all the information.

Marcy hopes that hiding within it will be hints about intelligent life abroad. What if, say, the dimming of a star that Kepler observes is caused by something even more fanciful than the passage of extrasolar planets? Something synthetic, perhaps? Marcy admits that even he’s not certain what he’s looking for.

“I do know that if I saw a star that winked out, then at some point it winked back on again, then winked out for a long, long time and then blinked on again, that that would be so weird,” he says. “Obviously that wouldn’t constitute the detection of an advanced civilisation yet, but it would at least alert us that follow-up observations are warranted.”

Such an irregular pattern might signal the leisurely and unpredictable passage of massive spacecraft in front of the star. But, perhaps more likely, it might indicate the presence of a Dyson sphere, a mainstay of science fiction first proposed by physicist Freeman Dyson in 1960.

The concept is simple. The energy needs of a civilisation a thousand or a million years more advanced than our own would probably be vastly greater than ours. The greatest source of energy in a solar system is its star, and that energy could be captured by building a massive structure tiled with solar panels enveloping the star – the ultimate green jobs initiative.

 

Sirius€ is a feature length documentary that follows Dr. Steven Greer – an Emergency Medicine doctor turned UFO/ New Energy researcher – as he struggles to disclose top secret information about classified energy & propulsion techniques. Along the way, Dr. Greer investigates new technology and sheds light on criminal suppression. He accumulates over 100 Government, Military, and Intelligence Community witnesses who testify on record about their first-hand experiences with UFOs and with the cover-up.

In the course of his research Dr. Greer is asked to look at an amazing find: a humanoid specimen, 6 inches long from the Atacama Desert. Not until 2012 was he given permission to take bone samples and DNA from the specimen. At that same time a pre-eminent geneticist, hearing of this find, offered to do DNA testing. He enlisted an MD from the same university,- world renowned for his work with skeletal anomalies, to view the x-rays and CT scans. Their expertise along with Dr. Greer’s expansive knowledge of the subject bring more questions than answers. Where did this “Atacama Humanoid” come from? Are there others like it? What does it say about the origin of the human species?
