Namaste Barbara Pijana Lama Gi,

I bow, I hope you are doing well in these times. I wanted to extend my thanks to your website before asking a question. You are a wonderful guide in many of life’s questions and you offer a resource that covers a vast amount of material. Thank you for your light during this incarnation :)

My question has to do with your page on Nakshatra Body Parts. On your list, you put Kritikka as the head and first. I know there has been discussion between some astrologer’s and the true “First” Nakshatra, and because bharani is where life “begins” through the vagina portal.

Based on your published chart, do you believe the first Nakshatra is truly Kritikka while representing the head potion of humans? And that the first Nakshatra is not indeed Ashwini?

Sending blessings,

Namaste and Thanks for your interesting question.

It is not possible to have a truly first nakshatra, because the nakshatra form a circle with no beginning and no end.

The numerical ordering of the nakshatra -- starting with Ashvini, or starting with Krittika, or starting with any other field-boundary -- is a practical convention for memorizing and teaching purposes.

Those who prefer Krittika as starting point may be referring to the intervention of the Pleiadean emissaries (Plejaden, Krittika, the creators) as a starting point in the current terrestrial cycle.

Wishing you and your family every happiness, healing from sorrow, guidance by inner light, and success in all of life’s endeavors,


Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotishavidya
