The seven days of a week influences our life. Indeed a week represents our life; astrologically too!
How? Sri.Sri.Muralidhara Swamiji gives a beautiful explanation…. Read on….
The prime cause of one’s birth is his father. SUNDAY, as the name goes, is the day of the Sun. And it is the first day of the week. Astrologically speaking, Sun represents the father!
It is through the Mother that one comes into being. MONDAY which is the day of the Moon. And astrologically, Moon represents the mother, and hence it is the second day of the week.
After the mother conceives her child, she gives birth to the child who lands on this earth. TUESDAY – called as ‘Mangalvaara’ – is the day of Mars. (In Sanskrit Mars is ‘Mangal’). In astrological terms, Mars represents land.
As a child the little one goes out seeking education to improve knowledge. WEDNESDAY called ‘Budhavaara’ – is the day after the planet Budha – Mercury. As per astrology, the planet Mercury represents education.
After acquiring worldly knowledge, one then goes to the feet of a Guru for wisdom. THURSDAY is ‘Guruvaara’ – the day named after Guru – Jupiter, the planet that represents wisdom.
After acquiring knowledge and wisdom, one enjoys comforts and pleasures in life according to his level. FRIDAY – Shukravaara’ is the day named after Shukra – the planet Venus which represents pleasure in astrological parlance.
Then the span of life comes to an end. SATURDAY – ‘shanivaara’ is the day named after Shani – the planet Saturn which represents death – signifying the end of one’s life ! And then, it goes in circles!
