DL-172 Fields of Intelligence: The Vedic Deities – Johnsen
What if the planets weren't just balls of rock or gas, but were actual living intelligences? Ancient Hindu astrologers visualized the planets as deities, and used myths to enter into a living relationship with the energies each planet represents. This lecture introduces Vedic astro-mythology and the ancient technique of shanti graha, "making peace with the planets" by entering into a dialogue with the gods and goddesses inside ourselves.
