Hi All - While watching and learning from the video series on Healing Rahu/Ketu, I recently learned from the three truths videos on Veda (4th), Yoga (8th), and Self Realization (12th). @ernst mentions that with his Rahu in the 7th, it was difficult for him to practice Yoga and feel the real benefits from it. 

My Rahu is in the 8th house and relates to the realizing truth from Yoga. I do not practice Yoga. As I comprehend the video, I need help to understand if practicing Yoga will serve as a catalyst or as catalyzing process to realize my truth, or is it more metaphorical? 

Thank you

to learn new truths we have to approach rahu, so that means working on the yoga when Rahu is in the 8th.

@ernst Thank you. By working on the yoga, are you recommending to start practising yoga/taking yoga lessons?

@arjstere I mean start doing practices that cause union between you and God and or Guru. I do not mean doing the splits in a yoga class.

1. Does it matter if the closest moksha cusp is "behind" or "in front" of Rahu? Natives with Ra in 7th, along with those with it in the 9th as well, both natives need to stop neglecting yoga?

When in the 7th, Rahu would have most recently transited the 8th cusp, so would the yogic truths of the 8th still be "new truths" as you put it, despite it recently being there?

2. Also, does the planet Ra is closest to, whether in front or behind, indicate the type of yoga that the native is weak on, or would need to develop in this life?

Like Hatha or Kriya-type yoga if Ra is closest to Mars, since they would need to focus on managing their will and directing and disciplining the energies of the body? And bhakti yoga if it is closest to Venus, service/karma yoga if its Saturn, etc.

Thanks,

S.

@mitryendra80 it doe snot matter if the cusp is in front or behind. 

Rahu has nothing to do with the type of yoga. the type of yoga and spiritual practices a person will grow the fastest from is indicated by the jaimini techniques of 12th house .

From the perspective of non-dual teachings (more specifically, Rupert Spira for me) and from my own experience, one doesn't need Yoga to realize truth. One also doesn't need mantras, mudras, or any form of practice. We only need to recognize "I am aware" and "I am aware of being aware" and see that the nature of this awareness, consciousness or knowing of experience is always there, unchangeable, unperturbed and common to all regardless of particular circumstances. As Mooji beautifully puts it: "we are one in essence, unique in expression". And, this only takes a few seconds to realize that. I wish I had realized that sooner, would have saved me a lot of time, energy and money in Yoga trainings and such, in search of some truth or of my true nature. Duh! With Rahu/Neptune in the 4th, I guess I was meant to explore home outside of home, only to realize there was no trip to take in the first place.

With that being said, since our belief in being a separate entity is strong and comes with a load of unhelpful habits, it's usually easier to understand this from an intellectual point of view than to have a felt sense of our true nature and embody it. That's where Yoga can be useful: as a way to align how we feel in the body with this understanding. The trick is to find the right Yoga teacher. Rupert Spira and also his wife, Ellen Emmet, Jeff Foster, are people you can look up if interested in exploring this approach. 

Hope this helps!

@mona Sounds like mindfulness essentially.

@mitryendra80 Mindfulness is a part of it.

If Rahu is in the first, the closest moksha house is the 4th? So Veda is what they need to work on? 

The closest moksha house to the 1st is the 12th house: self realization. So shouldn't that be what the individual should work on?

Likewise if Rahu is in the 5th, won’t the 4th house veda be the closest to it?
