Vāyuveda: The Science of Movement
Vāyu is Sanskrit for the 'deity of life', breath and movement; of the body and Prāṇa; the life force.Vāyu can be translated as wind or movement, Veda as knowledge or science. Vāyuveda can be translated as the 'science of movement' or 'science of breath'. The symbol used in the name is the alchemical symbol for wind.
This force can be seen in the movement of the planets, too; an awareness of which gives us insights into the myths of astrology and how we are living out these myths as our personal stories. Vāyu is the deity that rules the lunar mansion Svātī seen in the constellation of Libra. One of the sign's symbols is a sword, representing the diversification of the life force, and strength, as it enters the body and becomes the 5 winds or vāyus. Lord Vāyu is the father of Lord Hanumān, the deity of courage and strength.
