Grahas and Chakras

Grahas and Chakras
In Vedic Jyotish (astrology) we have seven spiritual Grahas (planets), which reveals our Karmas (accumulated past physical or mental actions) in past, present and future. The human body is called Pinda (microcosms) and it is a miniature duplicate of Bramanda (macrocosm). Seven spiritual solar Grahas (planets) are manifestation of God and Graha (planet) manifests themselves in us. Seven spiritual Grahas (planets) are located at seven Chakras (subtle spiritual energy points) of human spine.

Apart from these seven spiritual Graha (planets), we also have two shadow Graha (planets), which are known as Rahu (ascending node or dragon head) and Ketu (descending node or dragon Tail). Neptune, Uranus and Pluto are outside the scope of Vedic Jyotish (astrology).
It is interesting to note that we have Seven Grahas (planets), Seven Chakras (subtle spiritual energy points), Seven colors (VIBGYOR), Seven musical notes and Seven seas!
