Ketu Dev

Ketu Dev



Birth Myth: During the giving out of the ambrosia to the gods, one of the Asuras (demons) disguised himself as a god and sat among them. Just as he took a mouthful of ambrosia, Surya and Chandra realized the fraud, and Vishnu quickly cut him in two, thereby giving us Rahu and Ketu. However the power of the ambrosia caused the two pieces to continue to be alive, and so Brahma changed them into planets and sent them to the heavens. Rahu continues to be the enemy of Surya and Chandra. Eclipses are when Rahu tries to devour them.

The South node or Ketu is regarded as a point of difficult Karma from a past life in which the individual furthered his own selfish interest at the expense of others. The South node, on the positive side, can develop strong concentration and mastery of obscure or arcane subjects. Ketu gives sudden and unexpected results for good or bad. On the spiritual front Ketu gives perception, liberation, wisdom and psychic sensitivity in a more genuine way."Om Hum Kem Ketave Namah""Om sraam sreem sraum sah ketave namah""Om kem ketve namah"
