A Study of Rāvaṇa’s Uḍḍiśa Tantra

Gati: The Direction of the Mind (Moon)
Once upon a time, many eons ago, at the time when Śrī had left the gods, Śiva blessed the High Priest of the dark side, Śukrācārya, with the unequivocal Mṛta Sañjīvanī knowledge, by which the asuras (demons) came back to life from the dead, irrevocably more powerful and supreme as conquistadors.

Definitions
Ārūḍha means to mount, rise, bestride, like mounting a horse or to ascend, or elevate. In jyotiṣa terminology it is used to describe a secondary self (mounted selves or selves which bestride the original self) or image that is mounted or superimposed upon the real self. This superimposed self often exists in a parallel plane to the real self; but can become so real as to blur the distinction between the real and the projected, to the extent the native can forget his true self and imagine the projection to be the truth.

Let’s begin with the larger picture and then we will go through all the characteristics of the Moon. Why it is the mother and why it is the healer.

The larger picture is that the Moon is Prakrati – the created universe – Maya.

Surya is the source of life and the Moon is the created world and the creative universe. Its basic function is to protect and sustain this creation which is sourced by the Sun. The Sun is the source and is where things start from.

बृषभं चर्षणीनाम् विश्वरूपम् अदाभ्यम्। बृहस्पतिम् वरेण्यम्॥
Janma Rāśi
Jupiter is the suraguru, the priest of the gods, the giver of light and the supreme preceptor. It is he who removes the darkness of ignorance and ushers in the light of knowledge. Without the blessings of Guru, the mind is forever enshrouded in darkness, clouded by ignorance, until Jupiter illuminates it and grants wisdom.

Introduction

The Sun, resplendent and glorious in his twelve forms, as the ruler of the day and the lord of the grahas, is the controller of Kāla or Time. The three navels of his amazing one-wheeled chariot are the triptych of kālas, bhūta, bhaviṣya and vartamān (past, future and present) and the different kāla sankhyās or the measurements of time like kṣaṇ, muhūrta, divasa, rātri, pakṣa, māsa, saṁvatsara, ṛtu, ayana and yugas are the different parts of his chariot.

The Beginning
In the beginning there was the great Void. The five primordial elements or the pañca bhūtas, the 14 lokas or the caturdaśa bhuvanas, the Universe, dyu and Space, water and air, sound and light nothing existed. There was neither death nor life, no day nor night, neither beginning nor end. There existed only the one Brahmaṇ, immersed in the mire of dark ignorance and undivided from its Māyā, formless and without any attributes or qualities.
