Judy, are you pointing out that a galaxy is a subset 
of the universe, hence "galactic universe" is like 
saying "partial infinity" or some such non sequitur? 
If so, I agree that it's a silly modifier.

I posted what I did above to point out that 
"galactic universe" may have been chosen as a
way to say "the actual physical universe," as you observe.

I'm also curious about people's experiences in their 
sadhanas, and how those experiences may tie into daily life.
