The left corner has a rectangle figure
The right undivided half portion of this rectangle is called ekata, the
undivided one. The left divided part is called Dvita, the divided one. The third
entity is formed by united forms of ekata and dvita. This is called Trita.
Keeping ekata, dvita and trita at one place signifies that though these forms
are separate, still they are united. To strengthen this view, a triangle
situated on a staff is also placed beside the rectangle. Here the triangle
signifies three, while the staff is symbolic of 'not'. This forms the word Atri
- not three. But Brahmanic texts have given the derivation of this word from
root - to eat. A fire symbol (fish like) is also placed beside the triangle.
This is symbolic of fire. Thus, the three signs may be read as united devouring
fire, or united not - three fire. Spritually, what is that which may be three or
non - three? Soul may be three fold from the point of voice, mind and praana.
This fire soul, when depicted in
From another point of view, according to one sacred text, the devouring
fire has mouths in all directions and the soul has been called having 6 mouths.
That is why
There is a seal of all - mouth fire where all the six mouths are connected with some heart like thing. This strange thing may be the Ukhaa of Braahmanic texts. In order to clarify what is Ukhaa, it is a Yajna vessel which is symbolic of fire and as soul is a form of fire, so of soul also. In body, stomach has also got the characteristics of Ukhaa. It seems that heart is the real Ukhaa, because heart is the central place of body yajna to which intellect, mind, ears, speech, soul etc. remain connected.
Mahabharata states that fire is eternal and it's symbol Ukhaa is different from it. - - - - It seems that this Ukhaa has two half - parts - Varuna and Vritra. - - - - --
Regarding the existence of number 11 below the unicorn head, the same thing is inscribed in the right corner of the cover page seal of this book. On the basis of one upanishada, this seal bears the signs of 7 cereals and 4 wealths. Also, the out of 11 leaves of this tree, 7 are full grown and 4 are just grown. - - - - - - -
- - - - - It seems that in upanishadic culture, the
collectivity of 11 cereals and wealths is the gross form of threefold
nature/ajaa which is also represented by a tree having leaves. The subtler form
of this is represented by two half - Ukhas, as stated above.According to
upanishada, out of 11, 3 are subtler cereals which are called voice, mind and
praana/Indra. These three are reserved for Prajaapati himself. Soul becomes able
to speak, think and act with the help of these only. These three are also called
known, knowable and the unknown. The more subtle parts of these 3 are called
fire, sun and moon, whose body parts are earth, heaven and waters.
Out of the six names mentioned in
On the other hand, the fire with covering of non - yajna may
be the eagle which does not taste this nature/ajaa. The combination of these two
is Indu/Soma, whom the upanishads call Indra/praana. In
