The Vishnu Nabhi

In hindu cosmology there is a part of the universe called the “vishnu nabhi”.

In modern cosmology we understand the planets as revolving around the sun but we do not know what precisely governs the motion of the sun. In hindu cosmology the sun is understood to revolve around the vishnu nabhi.

It is not clear what precisely the vishnu nabhi is, whether it is a star or a black hole or some sort of space that is a point around which something revolves or if it is something else.

    So does Hinduism propose that the sun is in the center of our planetary system? I’ve read that some systems propose the earth is the center, including the ancient Christian. It’s interesting that there are still many aspects of both theories which never calculate out. The cosmos is mysterious.

  2. ‘Vishnu Nabhi’ is an indicative reference to the supermassive black hole at the center of the milky way galaxy. A per vedas, Lord Vishnu lies on shesha nag in what is known as a ‘Yog Nidra’ and from his ‘nabhi’ comes the lotus on which sits ‘Brahma’ the one who created multiple universes. Comparing this part to our latest understanding of astronomy, we can see that blackholes are singularities where normal laws of space, time and physics are turned upside down… yet they exist and the supermassive blackholes in particular play the most important role in shaping the universe by being the center of galaxies. Countless stars and planets and other heavenly bodies are created and destroyed by their influence in the galaxies centered by them. So, while it is true that sun is part of a binary star system, where the sun and Sirius-A revolve around each other, A more convincing deduction would be the consideration that Vishnu Nabhi must be the supermassive blackhole at the center of our galaxy or collective mention of all the super massive black holes.
