View Full Version : The Moon As Deity of God
The Moon and the Sun are important deities of God for devout Hindus. The moon represents the heart and the calmness of the mind. The principle of deity worship, both internal and external, have their roots in the forces of nature that are believed to have a presiding deity that governs that particular force. It is often here that confusion about gods and goddesses come about in Hinduism and Hinduism seen as a polytheistic religion. But all deities of God in Hinduism came after creation and are not additional Gods, but only forces of the principle of God as One that is cosmos, keeping in mind that God in Hinduism is only eternal witness. Salvation in Hinduism requires passing the test of the mind (moon) and intelligence (sun).

NEW DELHI: As news trickled out about Indian maiden lunar mission tracing water molecules on the moon's surface, scientists rejoiced at the discovery and hope that it will pave the way for growing vegetation in the earth's natural satellite in future.( Watch Video )
"I am really very happy to know that the NASA payload on Chandrayaan-1 has traced water. If it is true, then it will pave the way for growing vegetation in moon surface in five or 10 years from now," renowned scientist Y S Rajan said...
Like the deity of the sun (intelligence) that reflects it light on the moon (mind), so too the Atma (God principle) reflects its light as Buddhi (divine wisdom) on the heart (consciousness)
God is the supreme principle of functioning (wisdom) and not the supreme entity that functions.
The principle of God is then applicable to all entities as a principle of functioning called God, and the principle always remains God, not the entity that functions. Unfortunately man confuses the principle and makes the entity God.
it is said the humans have found water on the Moon God and will explore the colonizing of the Moon. But many of us wonder if it is not just another of God's Paradise for man to pollute.

Humans have found one more watering hole to colonize
Water is crucial to life. If we ever hope to set up a colony somewhere, we first need to look for water. This was true when the first humans migrated out of Africa some hundred millennia ago and is true even today as
we try to expand our reach beyond the Earth. But we can all see that the Moon is a barren wasteland.
Until now, scientists believed that the Moon was completely barren with no signs of water. As early as the 1970s, scientists had wondered what happened to all the water that was deposited on the Moon by comets and meteorites that collided with it. After all, a large fraction of water on Earth is also believed to have come from comets. However, it was thought that the sun light was so intense that water probably evaporated into free space. Then speculation began to appear about the possibility that water may have survived in the cold polar regions where sunlight failed to reach. One of Nasa’s missions was sent into these cold dark regions to see if ice-water splash could be detected but the results were not very clear.
It is against this background that the results of Chandrayaan-1 are to be seen. From its very inception, the Indian scientists who set out its goals and plans were clear that it was not simply a technology demonstration mission of India’s capabilities in managing a complex space mission to Moon. It was to have clear scientific objective of broadband observations. To achieve this, Isro invited instruments from all over the world and a lot of state of the art instruments onboard Chandrayaan-1 mapped the Moon.
Amongst its many achievements, we now learn that for the first time, Moon Mineralogy Mapper of Nasa on Chandrayaan-1 has produced unambiguous evidence that there is water on Moon. Its results were confirmed by re-examining some of the old satellite data. More spectacularly, water is present on the entire surface of the Moon. It means that a lot of the water that the comets had deposited on the Moon over the last four billion years in fact remained on the Moon, even if it is slightly below the surface.
It seems that the comets that dumped water on Moon also deposited a layer of soil on it. This prevented the water from evaporating away. It is estimated that a chunk of the surface of the Moon no more than one metre by one metre and a few centimetres deep has more than a glass of water in it. This is exciting for planetary science itself. But it is even more exciting for any plans we have of living on the Moon. We will not have to carry water to Moon. Like our wandering and conquering ancestors, we have located one more watering hole where we can hope to colonize. Exciting times lie ahead, and India’s first Moon mission Chandrayaan-1 has made it possible.
