The 11th Dimension of Rudra

Anuvaka -11 – The force of Rudra on Apa (The base-pairs of DNA/The medium that makes it thrive)

This anuvaka invokes the eleventh dimension of Rudra, the force that creates and sustains Apa. It contains numbers 1 to 33 in steps of 1,3,5 to 33. It also contains numbers 4 to 48 in steps of 4,8,12 to 48. It seeks the blessings of Rudra on these numbers. Actually these numbers represent a polymer chain of molecules that form the Apa.

In this anuvaka, the Rishis want the force of the Rudra that influences the APA to come into the APA and influence it positively. They invoke the force of Rudra on the APA.

DNA base pairs are found in nucleus as well mitochondria. Science says that DNA originated in mitochondria and probably migrated (keeps migrating) to nucleus.

The mitochondrial DNA is inherited from mother while nuclear DNA is inherited from mother and father.

This chamakam talks about the base-pairs of DNA of Amba (mitochondria) and base-pairs of nuclear DNA. The base-pairs of mtDNA (mother Amba) are indicated by numbers one, three, five, seven upto thirty-three. The base-pairs of nucleus are indicated by numbers four, eight, twelve upto forty-eight.

एका॑ च मे ति॒स्रश्च॑ मे॒ पञ्च॑ च मे स॒प्त च॑ मे॒ नव॑ च म॒ एका॑दश च मे॒ त्रयो॒दश च मे॒ पञ्च॑दश च मे स॒प्तद॑श च मे॒ नव॑दश च म॒ एक॑विग्ंशतिश्च मे॒ त्रयो॑विग्ंशतिश्च मे॒ पञ्च॑विग्ंशतिश्च मे स॒प्त विग्ं॑शतिश्च मे॒ नव॑विग्ंशतिश्च म॒ एक॑त्रिग्ंशच्च मे॒ त्रय॑स्त्रिग्ंशच्च मे॒
The numbers one, three, five indicate the base-pairs of mtDNA. A base-pair of DNA contains two bases either Adenine-Thymine or Guanine-Cytosine. The numbers are incremented by two indicating the two bases in a base-pair.

Actually the number one indicates the first thousand bases in mtDNA. Number two indicates two thousand bases. Similarly number thirty-three indicates thirty-three thousand bases of mtDNA in humans.

These thirty-three thousand bases are organized in terms of 16500 base-pairs (16650 to be more accurate) in mtDNA. Hence the numbers are counted one (thousand bases), three (thousand bases), five (thousand bases) upto thirty three (thousand bases) (in seventeen base-pair steps).

The meaning of these verses is:

Rudra, come into and protect the 16,500 base pairs of the mtDNA

चत॑स्-रश्च मे॒‌உष्टौ च॑ मे॒ द्वाद॑श च मे॒ षोड॑श च मे विग्ंश॒तिश्च॑ मे॒ चतु॑र्विग्ंशतिश्च मे॒‌உष्टाविग्ं॑शतिश्च मे॒ द्वात्रिग्ं॑शच्च मे॒ षट्-त्रिग्ं॑शच्च मे चत्वारि॒ग्॒ंशच्च॑ मे॒ चतु॑श्-चत्वारिग्ंशच्च मे‌உष्टाच॑त्वारिग्ंशच्च मे॒
Similarly the bases of nuclear DNA are represented by the numbers four to forty-eight. In nucleus of human cells, two chromosomes are present (XX or XY). Most human cells are diploid in nature.

This means that the bases can be visualized as organized as two base-pairs (one base pair in one chromosome, two base pairs in two chromosomes) and four bases. Hence it is counted in steps of four.

Actually four indicates four hundred million bases. Similarly eight indicates eight hundred million bases. And forty-eight indicates forty-eight hundred million bases.

These forty-eight hundred million bases are organized as 2400 million base pairs spread across two chromosomes. Hence the numbers are counted as four, eight, twelve upto forty-eight.

Though estimated base-pairs in human nucleus is 2900 million, 2400 million base-pairs or 4800 million bases are common to apes, chimpanzees and homo-sapiens. This points to a strange possibility that Vedas and Intelligence is not the privy of current homosapien race, but probably a race much before that.

Thus in this anuvaka, the Rishis invoke the blessings of the force of Rudra on the base-pairs of mtDNA and base-pairs of nuclear DNA.

The meaning of these verses is:

Rudra, come into and protect the 2400 million base pairs of the nuclear DNA

Now let’s see the rest of this Anuvaka.

vAjah – Energy
kSaCa - protector
prasavah – originating
kSaca - protector
apijah - repeated birth (multiplication)
kSaca – protector

(You are) Protector of the Energy that creates Apa (the base-pairs). (You are) protector of the origination of the base-pairs. (You are) protector of the multiplication of Apa (building up of long base pairs)

kratu - Sacrifice (evolution of base-pairs)
kSaca – protector
suvah – Carrying out well of Sacrifice
kSaca – protector

(You are) Protector of evolution and Protector of Growth of evolution

mUrdhA - beginning
kSaca – protector
vyakSiya – all Pervading
kSaca – protector
AntyAyanah - descendant of the one who finishes/ends
kSaca – protector
antya – end
kSaca – protector

(You are) Protector of the beginning of evolution, spread and end of evolution till the last descendant of the evolution

bhauvanah – worldly beings
kSaca – protector
bhuvana – world
kSaca – protector

(You are) Protector of all worldly beings (by being the protector of Apa/base-pairs), (You are) Protector of the world.

adhipathi – overlord
kSaca – protector

(You are) The Overlord Protector!

Summary of 11th Anuvaka

The 11th dimension of Rudra, the one that builds the DNA molecules on which the intelligence evolves continuously is extolled in this Anuvaka.

It invokes protection for the 16,500 base-pairs in the Mitro-chondria (33000 bases) and the 2400 million DNA base-pairs in the Nucleus.

Amba, which provides energy, whose milk is being sucked (QGP) for all evolution rides the 33000 bases of mtDNA. This is the DNA of the mother. Purusha which provides consciousness and evolution of intelligence rides the DNA on the Nucleus (The Soma or Acidic region).

Rudra is also hailed in this Anuvaka as the protector of of the Energy that creates Apa (the base-pairs), protector of the origination of the base-pairs, protector of the multiplication of Apa (building up of long base pairs)

Rudra is hailed as the protector of evolution, carrying out of evolution, beginning of evolution, spread of evolution, end of evolution and protector of all worldly beings and the world and the overlord protector of everything and everyone.
