aath shyaam varni ghodon dvaara kheencha rath

raahu (U+260A.svg) hindu jyotish ke anusaar us asur ka kata hua sir hai, jo grahan ke samay soorya ya chandrama ka grahan karta hai. ise kalaatmak roop mein bina dhad vaale sarp ke roop mein dikhaaya jaata hai, jo rath par aaroodh hai aur rath aath shyaam varni ghodon dvaara kheencha ja raha hai. vaidik jyotish ke anusaar raahu ko navagrah mein ek sthaan diya gaya hai. din mein raahukaal naamak muhoort (24 minute) ki avadhi hoti hai jo ashubh maani jaati hai.

samudra manthan ke samay raahu naamak ek asur ne dhokhe se divya amrut ki kuchh boondein pi li theen. soorya aur chandra ne use pehchaan liya aur mohini avataar mein Bhagwan vishnu ko bata diya. isse pehle ki amrut uske gale se neeche utarata, vishnu ji ne usaka gala sudarshan chakr se kaat kar alag kar diya. isse usaka sir amar ho gaya. yahi raahu grah bana aur soorya chandrama se isi kaaran dvesh rakhata hai. isi dvesh ke chalte vah soorya aur chandra ko grahan karne ka prayaas karta hai. grahan karne ke pashchaat soorya ya chandra uske kate gale se nikal aate hain aur mukt ho jaate hain.

raahu ki sthiti

bhaarateeya jyotish ke anusaar raahu aur ketu soorya evam chandra ke parikrama pathon ke aapas mein kaatne ke do binduon ke dyotak hain jo pruthvi ke saapeksh ek dusare ke ulti disha mein (180 degree par) sthit rahate hain. chuki ye grah koi khagoleeya pind naheen hain, inhein chhaaya grah kaha jaata hai. soorya aur chandra ke brahmaand mein apne-apne path par chalne ke anusaar hi raahu aur ketu ki sthiti bhi badalti rahati hai. tabhi, poornima ke samay yadi chaaaind raahoo (athva ketu) bindu par bhi rahe to pruthvi ki chhaaya padne se chandra grahan lagta hai, kyonki poornima ke samay chandrama aur soorya ek dusare ke ulati disha mein hote hain. ye tathya is katha ka janmadaata bana ki "vakr chandrama grase na raahoo". angreji ya Europeeya vigyaan mein raahoo evam ketu ko ko kramash: uttari evam dakshini loonar nod kehte hain.
