Sun’s Rashmi energies

Life on Earth depends on light and heat from the Sun. This fact is well known. Secondly, for centuries, psychiatrists have understood the connection between severe mental afflictions and the lunar cycle. Thirdly, Astrologers believe that the five innermost planets influence the lives of individuals. Is there any logic behind the second and third statements, with the Sun being the Planet’s only energy source? The Moon and planets only reflect the energy from the Sun! How can they exercise their influence on biorhythms? This article discusses seven Rashmi energy frequencies of the Sun, namely, Sushumna, Harikesa, Vishwakarma, Vishwashrava, Sampad-Vasu, Arva Vasu, and Svarat. Vedic texts connect Soma, the recharging impulse in the universe, with the Moon. Devas replenish their life force by drawing out Soma supply from the Moon during the waning phase.

This is the case also about Sinivali (सिनीवाली), Raka (राका), Kuhu (कुहू) or young moon and Anumati. They are Vedic goddesses who are associated with the phases of the moon. A review of the idea of the phases of the moon in the context of the Kalaas of Soma brings us more clarity. Subdivisions in new moon phase (thithi) Vedic astronomers split the lunation cycle (29.5 days) into thirty units. Each Thithi unit (similar to the phases of the moon) refers to a 12-degree movement of the Moon from the Sun (Surya Siddhanta). Consequently, the average duration of a Thithi is less than 24 hours. There is one anomaly when we go to an earlier Era. This relates to the Amavasya
