Blueb2, The Urvasi story can be interpreted in many ways. The late Srila Prabhupada of ISKCON fame stated, in his commentary to the Srimad Bhagavatam, that this story was about in-vitro fertilization. Why? Because the story involved two rishis who saw Urvasi taking her bath by the river. Because of her beauty, they were smitten with lust. However, they decided that that they would ejaculate their semen on a clay pot. From this pot, a baby grew who was named Vashistha, a very strong and wise man from the Hindu mythology.
My interpretation of the story is slightly different. The story is actually about the timing of procreating a very healthy and famous baby. Urvasi represents the passage or transit of the Moon on the third pada of the Krittika nakshatra. In jyotish, the sound syllable "U" in Urvasi represents the third pada of Krittika. The two rishis represent the placement or transit of the Sun in the rashi of Kumbha, represented by a clay pot, and the navamsha of Scorpio. During this time period, the man should spill his seed onto the womb of his wife. For your own verification, you should witness your dreams on the night when the Moon is transiting the third pada of Krittika. You might be able to see Urvasi in a form of a beautiful woman. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> wrote : --- <jr_esq@...> wrote : Yes, probably so, if the means of communication is through light or radio waves. As such, the speed of communication is limited by the speed of light. But it is theoretically possible to contact ETs through telepathic means or lucid dreaming. Why? Because consciousness pervades the entire universe. So, communication through consciousness is faster than the speed of light. IMO, the Srimad Bhagavatam has given us clues of this type of communication in the story relating to Urvasi, the heavenly apsara. She supposedly can be found taking a bath in the region near the Pleiades, which is placed in beginning degrees of Taurus. From my experience, everyone--perhaps, more so for males--can see Urvasi through lucid dreaming when the Moon is transiting the 3rd quarter of Krittika nakshatra. She appears as a beautiful female during a dream. Sorry to disappoint you, but the story of Urvasi is just a myth. These kind of myths exist in all cultures in history. What makes you take these stories literally? I know, Maharishi probably does. He is a goofball, and the original one, as far as the TM mov't is concerned. Yes, western religions are literalist, but not the eastern ones, with the exception of Hare Krishna mov't.
