The Dao that can be spoken, is not the eternal Dao;

The name that can be told, is not the eternal name.

The unname-able is the divine origin of heaven and earth;

The name-able is the mother of the myriad created forms.


Constantly have no desire in order to recognize its source;

Constantly have desire in order to observe its manifestation.

These two energies have the same divine origin, but they differ in polarity;

Both are called Mystery.

Mystery after Mystery, is the gate to all wonders.

Lao Tzu 老子

"Palasha pushpa sankaasham taraka graha mastakaam

Roudram roudratmakam ghoram tam ketum Pranamamyaham."

Myth of Ketu's Dismemberment

Collapsing Ketu 's personal story tells it all. There He was, the innocent tail of Rahu the Serpent God, sitting at the Deity Banquet, minding His own business. Ketu doesn't have an ego-membrane. Professor Ketu is a tail, Latin 'cauda" . Professor Ketu is present, but absolutely soundless and uninvolved.

  • Shri Ketu is as innocent and quiet as a tail can be, completely tranquil and neutral in the scene, when Rahu the Rage of Desire decides to make His big ego-membrane ploy. Rahu has snuck into the divine banquet illicitly, and He wants a sip of that divine immortal Amrit, the exclusive private drink of the Gods. He has an intense desire for it. Rahu will get a drink.

He will.

  • The chalice of Amrit is being passed around this gathering of Gods... Rahu slips into position to receive the next drink. Rahu succeeds! However, at the very moment when the first drop of Amrit touches Rahu's lips - guaranteeing Rahu a lifespan of the Gods -- Shri Vishnu sees illicit Rahu! Vishnu is enraged at this slimy impostor and throws His magical discus at Rahu, slicing Rahu in half.

With a terrible shriek, the head of Professor Rahu's severed body flies in one cosmic direction, and the tail of Rahu's body flies off the opposite way.

Rahu's severed tail-half is now called Ketu.

  • Rahu the Naga Head retains all His passion-driven intention and desire.

  • Thus Rahu remains a perpetual troublemaker. Ketu however has no sense of purpose or goal. Professor Ketu forever languishes in memory of His once-whole Self. Professor Ketu pines for unification with His lost Other Half.

  • Professor Ketu is bereft, abandoned, hopeless, lost, unrequited - and locked into an orbit wherein He can see His other half Rahu, but never rejoin with Him.
