Vedic Deities :
According to our thought, all forms of manifestation are considered as divinity . Any kind of creation and dissolution is seen as a play of the divine being, we know as God . God is omnipotent, but can be seen only with the inner eye . We worship him in the form of an idol, in the form of some natural phenomena like the sun or the rain, in the form of the household basil plant and even in the form of a shapeless rock to whom we assign a divine identity ! Thus, over the times, an entire pantheon, representing millions and millions of gods from various aspects of life has gradually evolved . There are beautiful stories about each of the gods, stories which include natural as well as unnatural events, stories which describe how they lived like divine beings as well as mortals, had their share of joys and sorrows, enmity and friendship , disasters and achievements . These pulsating tales not only fascinate us but also add depth to our spiritual inclinations . They affect us in myriad ways – in our thoughts, actions, and goals . They are a source of joy, the guiding principle, the emotional anchor and also , the restraining hand . They are the all knowing, all pervasive, divine influence present in each one of us .
Their importance in Vedic Astrology increases manifold because many of these gods and goddesses are the ruling deities of the Rashis or Zodiac signs in our horoscope . So an awareness of their qualities and characteristics will provide valuable insight in understanding the nature and behavior of the persons who fall under their influence .
