राहु¦ m. (-हुः) The ascending node; in mythology, the son of VIPRACHITTI by SINHIKA4, a Daitya, with the tail of a dragon, whose head was severed from his body by VISHN4U, on the information of the sun and the moon who caught him in the act of drinking Amrita which was being served to gods, but being immortal by tasting it, his head and tail retained their separate existence, and being transferred [Page605-a+ 60] to the stellar sphere, became the authors of eclipses; the first especially, by endeavouring at various times to swallow the sun and the moon to wreak his vengeance. E. रह् to abandon, (the planets which it has vainly attempted to devour,) aff. उण्, and the vowel made long.

राहुः [rāhuḥ], [रह्-उण् Uṇ.1.3]

N. of a demon, son of Viprachitti and Siṁhikā and hence often called Saiṁhikeya; ग्रसते हि तमोपहं मुहुर्ननु राह्वाह्वमहर्पतिं तमः Śi.16.57; विधुरपि विधियोगाद् ग्रस्यते राहुणासौ H. [When the nectar, that was churned out of the ocean, was being served to the gods, Rāhu disguised himself and attempted to drink it along with them. But he was detected by the sun and the moon who informed Viṣṇu of the fraud. Visnu, thereupon, severed his head from the body; but as he had tasted a little quantity of nectar the head became immortal, and is supposed to wreak its vengeance on the sun and moon at the time of conjunction and opposition; cf. Bh.2.34. In astronomy Rāhu is regarded, like Ketu, as one of the nine planets, or only as the ascending node of the moon.]

An eclipse, or rather the moment of occultation.

Abandoning.

Rāhu : m.: Name of a planet, also called Svarbhānu (6. 13. 39-40; 13. 17. 37).


A. Description: Described as round (parimaṇḍala) 6. 13. 40; fierce (tīvra) 6. 3. 26; dark (śyāma) 6. 3. 15; blazing, (prajvalita) 6. 3. 15; having smoke and fire sadhūmaḥ sahapāvakaḥ) 6. 3. 15; having copper-red crest (? tāmraº ºśikha) 6. 3. 24.


B. Importance: Chief among the planets (grahapatir varaḥ) 13. 17. 37; Rāhu, along with other planets, visits the sabhā of Brahman 2. 11. 20, 19; Rāhu, not directly named but probably referred to as Grahapati, finds place in the list of a thousand names of Śiva (ketugraho grahapatir varaḥ) 13. 17. 37 (however, Nī. on Bom. Ed. 13. 17. 38, interprets grahaḥ as rāhuḥ: ketuś ca prasiddhaḥ/candrākrau gṛhṇātīti graho rāhuḥ/ grahāṇāṁ patiḥ [grahapatiḥ] krūratvāt maṁgalaḥ); Rāhu finds place also in the Daivatavaṁśa 13. 151. 12.


C. Measurement: Dhṛtarāṣṭra asked Saṁjaya to tell him complete extent (sarvaṁ (pramāṇaṁ)) of Rāhu, to which Saṁjaya agreed 6. 12. 3-4; according to the information of Saṁjaya his diameter (viṣkambha) was 12000 yojanas, and his circumference (pariṇāha) 36000 yojanas; according to the learned Paurāṇikas his expanse (? vipulatva) was 6000 yojanas (parimaṇḍalo mahārāja svarbhānuḥ śrūyate grahaḥ/yojanānāṁ sahasrāṇi viṣkambho dvādaśāsya vai//pariṇāhena ṣaṭtriṁśad vipulatvena cānagha/ ṣaṣṭim āhuḥ śatāny asya budhāḥ paurāṇikās tathā) 6. 13. 40-41 (Nī. on Bom. Ed. 6. 12. 41 interprets vipulatvena as tato 'py ādhikyena, idam uttarānvayi; in that case the circumference of Rāhu will be 36000 + 6000 = 42000 yojanas; see also Editor's note on the stanza, Cr. Ed. Vol. 7, p. 765: “Saṁjaya is here relying upon his studies, and not upon the Eye Divine”); owing to its being larger in size than the sun and the moon, Rāhu covers them both at proper times (sa rāhuś chādayaty etau (i. e. candrādityau) yathākālaṁ mahattayā) 6. 13. 45.


D. Omens:

(1) Among the bad omens for the Kurus reported by Vyāsa to Dhṛtarāṣṭra one was related to Rāhu's swallowing the sun 6. 3. 11; this event is again referred to by Vyāsa as occurring at an improper time, i. e. on the thirteenth day of the month and in which Rāhu swallowed both Candra and Sūrya together; this meant destruction of the subjects 6. 3. 28-29 (for citation and Nī.'s commentary see Sūrya below); also cf. 14. 76. 15; 2. 71. 26; 9. 55. 10; the same was also noted by Karṇa and reported to Kṛṣṇa (rāhur arkam upaiṣyati) 5. 141. 10 (Nī. on Bom. Ed. 5. 143. 11: ayaṁ kartarīyogaḥ somavaṁśyānāṁ sūryavaṁśyānāṁ ca rājñāṁ kṣayakara ity arthaḥ); (reference to Rāhu implied in 6. 73. 10: prajāsaṁharaṇe sūryaḥ krūrair iva mahāgrahaiḥ (parivṛtaḥ);

(2) Among the omens noticed by Vyāsa there was also another according to which a black planet (= Rāhu) blazing, and full of smoke and fire had gone over to Jyeṣṭhā and remained there (śyāmo grahaḥ prajvalitaḥ sadhūmaḥ sahapāvakaḥ/…jyeṣṭhām ākramya tiṣṭhati//)) 6. 3. 15 (Nī. on Bom. Ed. 6. 3. 16 reads śveto grahaḥ in place of śyāmo grahaḥ and explains it as Ketu: śveto dvitīya upagrahaḥ ketusaṁjñaḥ);

(3) Vyāsa had also noticed that the two Grahas (Rāhu and Ketu ?) having copper-red and ruddy crests (respy. ?) appear blazing in the sky and cover up the lustre of the seven sages (i. e. the constellation Ursa Major) (grahau tāmrāruṇaśikhau prajvalantāv iva sthitau/saptar ṣīṇām udārāṇāṁ samavacchādya vai prabhām//) 6. 3. 24;

(4) Kṛṣṇa observed that the amāvāsyā had already set in on the thirteenth day of the dark half of the month and that Rāhu had turned the fourteenth day into the fifteenth (which was looked upon as bad); he told the Yādavas that such an event had happened only once before at the time of the Bhārata war (a reference to 6. 3. 28-29 above) and that it had now occurred again to foretell the destruction of the Yādavas (trayodaśyām amāvāsyā tān dṛṣṭvā prābravīd idam//caturdaśī pañcadaśī kṛteyaṁ rāhuṇā punaḥ/tadā ca bhārate yuddhe prāptā cādya kṣayāya naḥ//) 16. 3. 16-17 (Nī. on Bom. Ed. 16. 2. 19, notices a hint of a solar eclipse in this statement: evaṁ saty agrimapakṣe vṛddhyā bhāvyaṁ tan na jātaṁ praty uta ekā tithiḥ kṣīṇā tatra grahaṇaṁ ca jātam). [See Dhūmaketu; for Rāhu, also see Section 1. 7]
