My uncle shared this amazing clock on our family whatsapp group and its an interesting concept !
This meaningful amazing clock is designed by the Pune University Samskrutam Department.
An explanation for the choice in place of the usual numerics.
Brahman is One.
Ashwini Kumars are Two
Gunas (Satva, Rajas, Tamas) are Three
Vedas (Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda, Atharva veda) are Four
Pranas (prana, apana, samana, udana and vyana) are Five
Rasas (Tastes – Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Pungent, Astringent) are Six
Rishis (Kashyapa, Atri, Vasistha, Vishvamitra, Gautama Maharishi, Jamadagni and Bharadvaja) are Seven
Siddhis (Anima, Mahima, Garima, Laghima, Prapti, Prakamya, Isitva, Vasitva) are Eight
Dravyas (Akasha, Vayu, Agni, Jala, Prithvi, Atma, Manas, Kala, Dik) are Nine
Disha (Directions – North, South, East, West, North-East, South-East, North-West, South-West, Upwards, Downwards) are Ten
Rudras (Manyu, Manu, Mahmasa, Mahan, Siva, Rtudhvaja, Ugraretas, Bhava, Kama, Vamadeva and Dhrtavrataare) Eleven
Adityas (Vishnu, Aryama, Indra, Varuna, Twasta, Dhata, Bhaga, Switra, Vivaswaan, Anshuman, Mitra, Poosha) are Twelve
I knew some of this information but had to search for the rest ! Utterly fascinating. I didn’t know for instance about Siddhis or Rudras. Heard about the Adityas when we attended the discourse on Adityahridayam by Vyoma Labs.
Need to understand all these in more details. Our vedic scriptures are truly an ocean of knowledge.
