QUOTATION

Valerie Roebuck, The Circle of the Stars, p. 100


" 22-Śrāvaṇa and 23-Śrāviṣṭha (Dhanishta) are a pair, even though they are not called purva-uttara, like the other nakshatra pairs."

Intimacy with the Object of Study = Hearing


QUOTATION from H.H. Tenzin Gyatso, Kindness, clarity, and Insight 25th Anniversary Edition .

Jeffrey Hopkins (Trans. Ed.), Elizabeth Napper (Ed.),



" When engaging in hearing , it is important to mix the mind, to familiarize the mind, with what is being heard.

  • The study of religion is not like learning about history.

It must be mixed with your mental continuum; your mind should be suffused with it.

A sutra says that the practices are like a mirror;

  • your actions of body, speech, and mind are like a face to be seen in the mirror;

  • and through the practices you should recognize faults and gradually get rid of them.

As it is said in the oral transmission,

  • "If there is enough space between yourself and the practices for someone else to walk through, then you are not implementing them properly."

Ashva-attha

under which horses [ashva] stand = the holy fig tree = Ficus Religiosa

aśvattha = a sheltered place for listening to instructions

  • According to Roebuck in The Circle of Stars, aśvattha = The Pipal Tree = ficus religiosa
  • Famed as the sacred tree under which [Gautama] Buddha attained enlightenment
  • aśvattha was also an emblematic, sacred tree within the Sarasvati Indus culture 2000+ yrs before the birth of [Gautama] Buddha .

aśvattha

Shrona is a rendering of Śrāvaṇa nakshatra. Ashva-attha means the tree under which horses take shelter. This same tree, Ficus Religiosa, is also a place where the Shaman = Shramin go to listen to the spirits. But despite aśvattha being an attribute of Shrona, due to being associated with horses, aśvattha is also sometimes applied as a moniker for Aśvini.

COMPATIBILITY

  • Applies to nakshatra of indriya-lagna AND nakshatra of Chandra. For emotional relationships, nakshatra of Chandra is more influential in determining compatibility and ease of interaction.

Psycho-socially compatible with Śrāvaṇa = Hari

Nakshatra of Chandra

matrikaraka caretaking Chandra's rhythmic, parenting, routinized style provides security-seeking home-based similarity.

Nakshatra of Surya

center-stage, sparklingly exceptional, brightly self-reflexive Surya finds Himself reflected in the passively companionable Moon.


Psycho-socially neutral with Śrāvaṇa = Hari

Nakshatra of Brihaspati

Guru and Chandra are mutual friends.. Protective Chandra keeps the emotionally nourishing routines pulsing while fertile Guru expands the doctrinal wisdom of understanding.

Nakshatra of Mangala

Kuja and Chandra are mutual friends. Mangala leads the conquest of new worlds and Chandra provides a safe home.


Psycho-socially uneasy with Śrāvaṇa = Hari

Nakshatra of Shukra

materialistic, accumulating, sensual Shukra is all about partnership, pairing, two-ness, cooperation, contract, sharing. Chandra operates on a parent-child model that is incompatible with equity partnership. Shukra's conditional contractual agenda and Chandra's unconditional protective agenda are deeply incompatible and often mutually resentful.

Nakshatra of Shani

Shanaicarya has a great dislike of both Chandra and Mangala. Shani's systems are lawfully regular and rule-governed while Chandra's flooding, swelling emotions maintain a culture of moody irregularity.

Nakshatra of Budha

Despite Chandra's parental acceptance of adolescent Budha, from Budha's perspective there is no greater enemy than caretaking Chandra. Therefore this pair is unbalanced and unhappy, with parental Chandra quietly absorbing all of bantering Budha's inexperienced wordiness while Chattering Kumara vociferously rejects Chandra's ancient, mute routines.


Most catalytic (challenging) nakshatra for Śrāvaṇa = Hari

Nakshatra of Rahu or Ketu

whether highly exciting [Rahu] or deeply observing [Ketu] the fascinating yet disruptive nodal styles are overtly hostile to Chandra's nourishing, protective lunar cycle. These pairings follow incommensurable agendas. The Chandra partner is likely to feel stressed by the unpredictability of the Rahu-Ketu partner.

QUOTATION from Dennis Harness, The Nakshatras: The Lunar Mansions of Vedic Astrology


"22. Śrāvaṇa: The Star of Learning

(Capricornus 10 00 to 23 20 )

Śrāvaṇa translates as the hearing, with its primary symbol being an ear. It is a deva, or godly nakshatra that has the capacity to hear the astral sounds of Krishna s flute, and the celestial bells or the cosmic Om.

The natives of this asterism usually have brilliant minds and the capacity to study other cultures and spiritual dimensions.

The movie director, George Lucas and Vedic scholar, david Frawley both have their natal Moons in this auspicious nakshatra.

Material success is a result of the primary motivation of this asterism being artha or wealth.

The primary deity is Vishnu, the Preserver of the Universe.

Saraswati, the Goddess of Learning, is considered to be the female deity associated with Śrāvaṇa.

The shakti is the power to provide connection with others ."

QUOTATION Pandit David Frawley

https://www.vedanet.com

  • Fruits of Worshipping Each Nakshatra


" Vishnu desired, "May I hear people say good words about me.

May I not gain any bad regard."

One who makes the appropriate offering to Vishnu, to Śrāvaṇa,

  • hears good words about himself

  • and does not come to any bad regard.

Those born under Śrāvaṇa are concerned about what people say about them

about their public reputation .

  • They will strive to keep themselves in good repute.

They are sensitive about the opinions of others."

BPL COMMENTARY

For Zra-vana births of a feminine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, habitual, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Apramaya, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, naatural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment , and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Throughout life, whatever their travels for safety or financial need, श्रावण-born remain profoundly patriotic toward their homeland and anchored in familiar domestic routines.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Aquila. Their purpose is sensitive, parental leadership and maintenance of the comforting rhythms of the social orderr.


The Listener = Shaman

Śrāviṣṭha ladies are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation. Orderly personalities who often conduct high-visibility careers, they are dedicated to family life and naturally comfortable with motherhood. Shrona-born often assume caretaker roles in social organizations and at all levels of government.

Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Hari-born attend to the needs of mothers and children, often using the slow and indirect bureaucratic methods that might intimidate a less patient leader. Yet, in their care it is quietly effective.

Śrāvaṇa-born are highly skilled listeners. Due to their exceptional sensitivity to rhythm, pace, and tone, Śrāvaṇa can be music and dance performers. Whether professionally or socially, Śrāviṣṭha ladies are typically superb dancers who delight in the orchestrated flow of gracious dancing.

Measured, appropriate tone

The primary aim of Apramaya-born is to deflect any unfavorable public opinion from themselves and their family. A secondary aim is to socially structure the regular flow of seasons in the lunar cycle. Thus, they are often engaged with the comforting rituals of the liturgical calendar.

Combining Chandra's orientation to the past with Shani's need for reliable rules of conduct, shrona folks may appear to be rather old-fashioned. Misbehavior is upsetting for them. Śrāvaṇa mothers bask in the glow of their children and grandchildren's accomplishments. Being a grandmother, or a grand-dame in some socially respected way, is perhaps their most cherished role.

Themes of propriety, politeness, security, seasonal flow, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Śrāvaṇa's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Śrāvaṇa

" Denotes a charitable and benevolent person of

BPL COMMENTARY

// keeping the beat //

For Zra-vana births of masculine valence, the condition of reflective, sheltering, undulating, rhythmic, habitual, culturally rooted, boundary-defending, security-seeking, nourishing, parental, matrikaraka Chandra may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Soma-ruled paradigm of Apramaya, mother-figures, protectors, guardians, elemental spirits, naatural environments, waters, roots, eggs, gardeners, farmers, fisher-folk, caretakers, foundation-builders, police, schoolteachers, parents, providers of nourishment, and defenders of the root culture, may be especially influential.

Throughout life, whatever their travels for safety or financial need, श्रावण-born remain profoundly patriotic toward their homeland and anchored in familiar domestic routines.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Aquila. Their purpose is sensitive, parental leadership and maintenance of the comforting rhythms of the social orderr.


The Listener = Shaman

Śrāviṣṭha gentlemen are exceptionally concerned with their social reputation.

Parental in their authority style, they adopt organizational caretaker roles and are found in secure positions at all levels of society. Śrāvaṇa are often found working in the slow but reliable bureaucracies which evoke their characteristic persevering patience.

Apramaya-born are often found operating charitable agencies, teaching school, or protecting their cultural foundations. Although their careers may elevate to the highest ranks of social decision-making, Hari-born remember always the simple family folk and their concerns with property, security, and nourishment.

As fathers, teachers, and social leaders, shravistha chaps are generally stable and protective. They are blessed with an intuitive understanding of the social law in context of ancient customs. Many are lawyers, judges, social-justice advocates, or teachers of the law.

In personal relationships, their comfort-seeking Chandra seeks an equally placid, parental match. Yet, being such peaceful people, these men may find balance with wives who are somewhat more outspoken.

Śrāvaṇa-born are highly skilled listeners. Due to their exceptional sensitivity to rhythm, pace, and tone, Śrāvaṇa can be singers and musicians. Śrāviṣṭha gentlemen are typically superb dancers who delight in the orchestrated flow of gracious dancing. When the occasion calls for careful listening to the beat of the music, their steps may be practiced and elegant.

Measured, appropriate tone

Śrāvaṇa must combine Shani's mandate to maintain the larger social order with parental Chandra's focus on the local settlement, housing, schools, and farms. Often their focus is property law .

Although public dignity remains important, Śrāvaṇa fellows are also concerned to maintain the steady life flow [Chandra] of the ethnicity or the nation. Combining Chandra's orientation to the past with Shani's need for reliable rules of conduct, shrona folks may appear to be rather old-fashioned. They find comfort in the old liturgical rhythms and are often regular participants in the rites of public worship. Their most cherished roles are usually Father and Grandfather.

Themes of social stability , public safety, property rights, protection of the old routines, maintenance of the tribe, and the soothing rhythms of homelife may contextualize Śrāvaṇa's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Śrāvaṇa

Śrāvaṇa Moonrise

BPL commentary on Śrāvaṇa Nakshatra

People are talking; Śrāvaṇa is listening

  • Śrāvaṇa is deeply concerned with public respectability and reputation.

any graha which occupy the Śrāvaṇa degree range = 10:00 - 23:20 Makara = functioning as one's listening equipment

the more graha located in Śrāvaṇa (including graha in the varga) the more energy one may devote to maintaining a spotless public reputation

PUBLIC RELATIONS

Śrāvaṇa is perpetually concerned with Public Relations. Suitable professions include

  • attorney
  • publicist
  • image-management
  • PR departments of corporations and governments
  • diplomatic roles
  • spin doctors of every stripe

COMFORT ZONE

Chandra-ruled Śrāvaṇa feels most comfortable in a Chandra+Shani environment that combines familiar, predictable rhythms with a fixed, status-ranked hierarchy.

Thus the Listeners may self-soothe by hearing the Mass [message] or devoutly participating in the liturgy of their culture's status-cult.

Regular [Shani] attendants at state-sponsored worship, they tend to be " churchy" .
