Since the days of childhood we all have learnt the week days. Even though the week starts with Monday, the first working day of the week, we have been told that the first day is Sunday. This usually does not seem to make sense and most of us feel that the weekend includes Sunday. But No actual the week starts on Sunday Is there a special reason for this and what is the logic for naming the week days. Actually DAYS IN A WEEK TEACH US a lot.
FIRST COMES SUNDAY;
When our soul arrives on this planet, it is eternal, pure, light, and unconquerable (ALL THE QUALITIES OF SUN)
When a child is born and enters this world the soul of the child is effected by all the planet s and the elements.
The first element which we have to conquer is WATER .WE all need to get out of the water bags...Water is represented by the MOON
Then comes TUESDAY (mangalwar) that is controlled by MARS, MEANS IN this step, we have to conquer over FIRE OR I CAN SAY OUR ANGER.
WE HAVE TO LEARN, HOW TO USE OUR ENERGY ON THE PATH OF ENLIGHTENMENT.
NEXT COMES Wednesday (BUDHWAR)
CONTROLLED BY MERCURY (that is element EARTH)
NOW WHEN WE HAVE conquered over our emotions and anger (energy)
We are ready to become a student or to gain knowledge, as only then our learning starts, only then our intelligence develop (all qualities of Mercury)
Moving ahead, When WE HAVE GAINED ALL KNOWLEDGE, BEING A STUDENT only then we can achieve the post of guru that is Jupiter.
HENCE comes (GURUWAR ) THURDAY. Here we have to conquer over (sky, aakash tatva) we have to develop all qualities of teacher (patience, perseverance, humbleness) but just being a guru ,will not give us enlightenment. WE HAVE TO CONQUER OVER ALL THE, WORLDLY PLEASURES (LUXURY, CARS, BANK BALANCE, SEX, BUNGLOW, STATUS, NAME, FAME) THAT is, true guru is one who is able conquer over all qualities of Venus.
HENCE (SHUKRAWAR)Friday so next step is control over worldly pleasure.
THEN COMES SHANIWAR (LORD BEING SATURN) SATURDAY (element air, Vayu tatva)
Saturn is TAP (penance), BAL (Strength), STRUGGLE, BEING HUMBLE WHILE having all the knowledge.
Saturn teaches us to be pure, IT TEACHES US, HOW TO LEAVE EVERYTHING IN THIS WORLD AND WALK ON THE PATH OF ENLIGHTENMENT.
Coming back, 12TH HOUSE IS FOR LOSS, ENLIGHTENMENT AND THAT IS WHAT FINAL STEP (SATURN) TEACHES US THAT LEAVE EVERY THING. THERE IS NOTHING ON THIS planet which can match God; it gives us the foresight to distinguish between what is ours and what is not ours
Everything that our ancestors formulated has great significance .If we can reach the knowledge behind the simple facts we would be able to help ourselves a lot.
