DIGANSHA YANTRA: Azimuth1 Instrument

Digansha Yantra


TRADITIONAL USE AND DESCRIPTION

This instrument displays the relationship of the Sun, planets, and stars to the horizon of the observer.

The Digansha Yantra consists of two concentric ring walls with a central post. The ring walls represent the viewer's horizon. Wires running north--south and east--west cross over the central post. The shadow of the crosswires falls within the ring walls, and the bar connected to the central post is moved until it intersects the shadow. Where the the bar crosses the marking surfaces on the ring wall indicates the azimuth of the Sun.

VEDIC INFLUENCE--THE VIEW OF MAHARISHI VEDIC SCIENCESM

There is a compass in the brain which enables us to find our way, which then enables the different senses to find their way and align with their objects. The nervous system responds to direction and orientation by specific firing patterns, mainly in the thalamus. These patterns influence one's sense of orientation and physiological functions.2 Observing this yantra is said to regulate and balance the firing patterns in the brain physiology in such a way that all physiological functions operate optimally. This functioning is very important for prevention and cure of imbalance.


1 An angular distance measured on the horizon from either the north or the south and then moving clockwise.

2 A 40-minute taped presentation on the firing mechanism and orientation in the brain has been made by Dr. Tony Nader.
