Standard

4.6

ajo ’pi sannavyayātmā bhūtānām īśvaro ’pi san

prakṛitiṁ svām adhiṣṭhāya sambhavāmyātma-māyayā

 

ajo ’pi – fallen from the consent to prevail on

san navyayātmā – many a times (san) the soul (atma) in its 9 planetary positions (navyaya)

bhūtānām -all of the living entity

īśvaro ’pi – have with isvaro’s consent to prevail on 

san-many a times

prakṛitiṁ -the nature’s way of showing

svām -own creation 

adhiṣṭhāya -upon the fulfillment of place/position

Sambhavāmyātma-māyayā- constitutes the possibility of how the soul is being born again and gain, the mystery of this place. 

 

Full meaning:

Fallen from the consent to prevail on, many a times, the soul in its 9 planetary positions. All of the living have with isvaro’s consent to prevail on many a times. This is nature’s way of showing own creation, upon the fulfillment of place position, constitutes the possibility of how the soul is being born, again and again, the mystery of this place. 

 

Hindu’s based on the birth have a nakhstara system of the 9 planetary positions for the chart, I think this is relevant in western astrology when it comes to Birth charts also. What is different is the time span (dasas) of each of these planetary positions in ones life. And Hindu’s do rituals to these navagraha’s or (planets) to remove bad luck from their lives. So maybe there was that obligation to full fill. There is Naraya to see to our end ofcourse for all our vimukthi, though how the soul is born (the planetary positions) continues to be the mystery of this place of that creation. 

 

What does it say in Gita?

There are no words in Sanskrit here for birthless and deathless. There are no words for sattva in the verse. Why only the sattva aspect of Prakriti? The 3 paths of that prikriti, are tamas, rajas and sattva.
