Arrow Lunar Dynasty

Shiva's Cosmic Dance-Part 3 ..
In Hindu mythology, the Lunar dynasty (also known as Somavansha, Chandravansha and as Ailas) is one of the 4 principal houses of the Kshatriya varna, or warrior–ruling caste.. This legendary dynasty was descended from the moon (Soma or Chandra), while the other principal houses, the Solar Dynasty (Suryavanshi) claims descent from the sun (surya)..The legendary capital of the Lunar dynasty was Pratisthana, said to be founded by Ila..The sun, as supreme among the celestial bodies visible to the astronomers of antiquity, was assigned to the highest of the gods and became symbolic of the supreme authority of the Creator Himself.. From a deep philosophic consideration of the powers and principles of the sun has come the concept of the Trinity as it is understood in the world today...

Suryavansha (Suryavam(n)sham or Solar Dynasty) is a mythological dynasty of ancient India.. The term Suryavanshi refers to a person belonging to Suryvansha dynasty..The Gurjars believe they are descended from the Suryavanshi and Chandravanshi warrior caste.. Copper-plate grants and the seals of Gurjars bear an emblem of the Sun..The Gurjar title of honor Mihir means "Surya"..The origin of the Trinity is obvious to anyone who will observe the daily manifestations of the sun.. This orb, being the symbol of all Light, has 3 distinct phases: rising, midday, and setting.. The philosophers therefore divided the life of all things into 3 distinct parts: growth, maturity, and decay.. Between the twilight of dawn and the twilight of evening is the high noon of resplendent glory..The golden ornaments used by the priestcraft of the various world religions are again a subtle reference to the solar energy, as are also the crowns of kings..The philosophers of Greece and Egypt divided the life of the sun during the year into 4 parts; therefore they symbolized the Solar Man by 4 different figures... is young men dying and old men talking.. You know this.. Ignore the politics..Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity.. so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries?..
