2023 BAVA Conference Sanjay Rath Talks


April 22nd  Sanjay Rath Keynote: Svarbhānu Knowing Rahu

Part-A: Vedic World: The lord of the dark energy that will ultimately destroy the Sun one day and drag it into the black hole is the mighty स्वर्भानु (svarbhānu). There are the eight mighty light sources called aṣṭa-vasava and to counter them are the eight equally mighty dark sources called aṣṭa-asura. Svarbhānu is one among these mighty ones. Let us know the many times Svarbhānu manifested, (2) how Vishnu split him with the sudarśana chakra and its implications, (3) the power of the two devarṣi Atri and Nārada in this regard.

April 24 Sanjay Rath: Svarbhānu: Knowing Rahu

Part-B: (1) Differences between the therianthropic form of Rahu and Ketu creatures – some examples and how to see them in charts. (2) Manifestation of Svarbhanu in divisional charts where the nodes conjoin (Therianthropic = animal/human mix)

April 28 Sanjay Rath: Chara karaka Rahu Part-1: Rahu as the desire causing rebirth

Rahu can be any of the eight charakāraka related to the existence of jīvātman. How does this impact the chart? We examine not only its different significations but also its placement and lordships of houses to delineate the results.
