Life Enabling Molecules spotted in Orion ( Mrigashirsha )


Europe’s Herschel Laboratory reported on Saturday that for the first time Life enabling molecules have been found in outer space.

“The Orion nebula is a nearby stellar nursery, brimming with gas, dust and infant stars. It is known to be one of the most prolific chemical factories in space, although the full extent of its chemistry and the pathways for molecule formation are not well understood.”

“By sifting through the pattern of spikes in Orion nebula’s light signature, or spectrum, astronomers have identified a few common molecules that are precursors to life-enabling molecules, including water, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, methanol, dimethyl ether, hydrogen cyanide, sulfur oxide and sulfur dioxide”

🙂 This article is one more crowning example of how advanced the ancients were in their observation of the skies and the scientific basis for astrology. Let me explain ….previously as you might remember had put a post on Mrigashirsha or Bode Orion .

1.Bal Gangadhar Tilak wrote an huge book on Orion and the Antiquity of the Vedas. Tilak was an sanskrit scholar par excellence even though he is remembered today for his contributions to the Indian freedom struggle.

I have a link from Google Books and if interested please read it at your leisure

2.In Vedic thought the two stars Rohini and Mrigashirsha are thought to be the most sacred region in space and are described as the head of Prajapati or Brahma.The most inauspiscious stars are the ones exactly opposite this pair and are the stars of Jyestha and Mula. Please not the auspiscious part is only in the spiritual plane, actually Jyestha and Mula Natal moon people tend to do very well in business and life.

3.The reason this star constellation was called Mrigashirsha or Arghayani …the foremost one or MargaShirsha was the very reason this star is lorded by Soma. Soma is another word for the Moon and also stands for Amrita .In both meanings it conveys Creation. As the Moon it represents the Goddess Gauri who is the divine mother who creates this whole world and she is definetly Amrita Svaroopini.

In the Mundane world ….Life probably orginated as a chemical molecule piggybacking itself from the Constellation of Mrigashirsha and ending up on the earth which future researches might reveal.

4.The bull is the symbol of fertility or creation and hence the presence of the Harappan Bull symbol found at most excavations in the Sindhu Saraswati Sites. Also Mrighasirsha figures prominently in the Surya Siddhanta of Varaha Mihira and the Rig Vedic hymns to Prajapati.

Nakshatra Suktam -Mrigashirsha Mantra

I cannot help but mention the Nasadiya Suktam which occurs in the 10th Mandala of the Rig veda and is the 129th hymn….What a beatuiful and scientific view of creation as shared by the ancients. They talk about Life being born in the primordial waters…

I can only laugh when somebody claims the Ancients had no technology….to the faithful are revealed the vistas of the heavens and it is a sight that cannot be forgotten in a million lifetimes.

May the Light of the KalaPurusha shine on all of us.

    What does primordial water here in this mantra mean? I am sure it does not mean water or liquidus.

    What is interpretation of “He surely knows or may be He does not?”

    Does it mean GOD we pray also does not know like I do not know what all kind of chemical and mental processes go inside my body……then it is a never ending loop of God over God….
