Blues Galaxies and Indra Deva

What is the role of Vritra and Vala in a galaxy center? Can we infer this from the example of rain clouds?

Rishis explain the nature of Devas through illustrations from nature. For example. they explain the nature of Indra by the illustration of phenomena related to clouds. Indra is an important Vedic deity. Asura Vritra is his archrival of Indra. Secondly, Asura Vala, a companion of Vritra is the archrival of Brihaspati. Who are Vritra and Vala? Gluttony is the product of Vritra influence. Vritra, as an abstract energy, hoards water in the clouds and deprives the world of life giving waters. Indra fights Vritra to release this water. This illustrates Indra’s role in starting any new cycle of prosperity.

Devas are omnipresent. This is so because they are aspects of the Cosmic being, God. Therefore, a Deva can influence a phenomenon in many levels of existence. Consequentially, we can identify Indra’s role at the galactic level as well. Certainly, we can draw inspiration for this from the example of the rain cloud. Let us see how we can do this.

Indra controls the Nakshatra arc region of the sky which lies close to the center of the Milky way. Astronomers say that this region is the control center for the entire Galaxy. In fact, this region controls star formation activity in the rest of our galaxy.

We can find details about this region in the International center for radio astronomy research. In summary, a paper there sorts galaxies according to how fast they exhaust their supply of star forming raw. Firstly, let us extend the rain cloud analogy to the raw material for star formation in a Galaxy. Definitely, Vritra influence must dominate galaxies with stunted growth. This is because, raw materials stagnate in the central regions of stunted growth galaxies. On the other hand, a galaxy with normal star growth hints the dominance of Indra. Next, let us consider the case of Vala-Brihaspati rivalry.

Vedic deity Brihaspati protects the growth phase of any nascent system. For example, a rain cloud must grow sufficiently to carry a bounty of rainwater. Brihaspati’s supports the maturing of a rain cloud. The Asura Vala, the archrival, aborts this crucial growth phase. This can lead to sparse and scattered showers. Similarly, Vala influence at the galaxy center can make its star formation scattered.
