Like Pythagoras' intoxication with the Music of the Spheres( Wisdom), the Indian Sages were infatuated with Knowledge. Many scientific truths were cognised by them in higher states of consciousness which came to be known as the Vedas. One such sage was Vararuchi, who discovered the interrelationship between numbers and letters of the alphabet.
The concept of Name Number
These are the various numbers given to the letters of the alphabet.
A I J Q Y = 1
B K R = 2
C G L S =3
D M T = 4
E H N X =5
U V W = 6
OZ = 7
F P = 8.
No letter has been assigned the number nine.
Individual Name Number - The Name Number is arrived by adding all the digits which correspond to the letters in your name. For example
P R A S H A N T U P A S E
8 2 1 3 5 1 5 4 6 8 1 3 5 Total 52
Individual Name No : 5 + 2 = 7
Here the individual Name Number is 7 & the Combined Name Number is 52.
There are effects for both the individual and the combined name numbers in Vedic Numerology. We will deal with it in our forthcoming articles.

fickle& inconstant nature and this has already swayed your
temparament. You are moody at times and this depression generally
saps your vitality. The best remedy for you is to

depression. Have implicit faith in God. Optimism is far better than
Your inconstant nature makes you hesitant at times. You may lack self-assertion and become indecisive at times.

In Vedic Astrology, Moon rules the mind ( Manasthu Hinagu ). If you consider Milton's statement " Mind is its own place and can make a Hell out of Heaven or a Heaven out of Hell", you can visualise how important a luminary Moon
is. The Vedas averr that Moon represents the mind of the Cosmic Man (Chandrama manaso Jatha ) and is one of the important political planets. Moon rules over three constellations of the Sidereal Zodiac - Aldebaran (Rohini), Delta Corvi (Hasta) & Altair (Sravana).
