Post 00: Return to Ketu roots/ Ground Zero

In the classic Chinese text of Taoist philosophy,  Tao Te Ching (click for link),  it's written..

Chapter 16
..The myriad things are all active
I therefore watch their return
Everything flourishes; each returns to its root
Returning to the root is called tranquility
Tranquility is called returning to one's nature
Returning to one's nature is called constancy
Chapter 40

      ...The returning is the movement of the Tao

After a long, meandering and serpentine, journey, today's post finds me returning to my Ketu roots. So do I embrace my Ketu roots once again, and once again, transform this, my third blog, to Ketu Currents, in the ever changing, mutating, tradition of my three blogs. For, as they say in Taoist philosophy.. returning to one's roots is destiny.

My long winding, indefinite, and forever research on the karmic, serpentine Rahu Ketu, the nodes of Vedic astrology began in 2002, when I was diagnosed by a friend, astrologer & gemologist Prasanta Barman, as having a multiple layered Ketu Dosha in my horoscope. After following the remedies, and wearing the cat's eye gemstone, suggested by him, I experienced multifarious reliefs and changes. And, since then, have been spurred on, to traverse a lifelong journey into vedic astrology, mysticism, healing traditions, etc, which later saw me commence my own astrological and vastu consultancy, professionally. And the main fuelling factor in this journey was my substantial research, investigation, blogging, and works on the serpentine and karmic Rahu Ketu.
However, it was much later, only after energy initiation from healer, Dipankar Roy Karmakar, in Nov 2014, that I began rediscovering the deeper roles of Ketu in my karmic journey. The sole, ruling factor in my life that has been a source of  great turbulence, upheaval and turmoil, yet ironically and paradoxically, responsible for bringing me spiritual insights, wisdom, and karmic relief.

And, in the ever changing, mutating, tradition of my three blogs, today finds me returning to my Ketu roots, and I embracing Ketu energies yet again, I transform this, my third blog, to Ketu Currents...
