See the Diamonds in Blue !

See the Diamonds in Blue. Glorious lights in a blue background. The Full Moon occurs there during the lunar month of Karthika and we call this Festival of Lights, Deepawali !

The constellation of Karthika are the Pleiades, the Seven Sisters in the Western. In the Indian they are the seven wives of the Seven Sages or Sapta Rishies !
Long live the Eternal Law, the Sanatana Dharma !

In Western Mythology, the Seven Sisters were loved by Orion, the Hunter. At their behest, Jupiter converted them into doves and placed them in the heavens. In the Indian, they are the wives of the Seven Rishies. Arundhathi or Alcyone is the central Star. There is a theory in Astronomy that our Sun is revolving around Alcyone, the Grand Central Sun !

In the Indian tradition, the bride is always shown Mizar, Vasishta and Arundhati. Arundathi was an Exemplar of Chastity. These two bright stars are always seen in the heavens. It is Vedic belief that they will not be seen when Death is approaching !
