Description

Cosmos Mandala is handpainted in Nepal which is a symbolic representation of part or all of the universe. This mandala is perfect for meditation, gifts to your beloved ones.The Kalachakra system is the basis for modern Tibetan Astro science, and recognizes ten ?planets?: Sun, Moon, the naked eye planets, the moon?s north and south nodes (Rahu or sgra can and Kalagni or dus me), and a comet named Ketu or mjug ring.Rahu and Ketu are described as the head and tail of a sky-blue dragon. Due to their color, they are only visible during an eclipse.
The Hindu explanation of eclipses is the demon Rahu attacking the sun or moon, but in the Kalachakra, system eclipses are correctly described as an alignment of the sun, moon, and appropriate satellite node.Eclipses are successfully foretold for hundreds of years in tibet.Also, though several discussions of archaeoastronomy embrace sweeping statements that each one ancient cultures feared eclipses, within the Tibetan tradition they are instead considered to be auspicious occasions. Kara (either positive or negative) accumulated during an eclipse is multiplied millions of times.It is interesting to note that in some early scriptural texts the planets are pictured as spherical bodies suspended in space.
