Altar Navagraha Yantra
Hi Ernst and All,
I want to build an altar in the East direction for Navagraha adoration. I have a piece of furniture with 9 position like image, Where can I place the planets correctly? I know the directions of graha, but because the altar is in the East and developed vertically, only Sun is correct.
On something like that it may be most ideal to put them around in a circle with the straight up the east and go around the circle make the right side south, the bottom west and the left side north. then in the center put some other devotional picture maybe of Guru or Krishna, etc.
Ketu does not have a direction this way, I put ketu next to rahu.
It snot always easy to find linear relationships between deities and planets. Hanuman is an incarnation of Vayu, but in what context, so that can be venus or saturn.
What is important is the element. Its the element of air that does all the work in our evolution via processin grief, removing traumas, and in pranayama which wins the spirutal war. Thus in hindu myth, the greatest hero always is air element. Thus in ramayana it is hanuman.
