Navagraha is a very popular and well known subject in India, since many, many centuries. It is a book on nine-grahas; it is a book on astrology; it is a book on divination; it is a book on numerology, etc. It is also a book on acupuncture.
Acupuncture in Navagraha:
Navagraha is a eight-point therapy in acupuncture. Eight directions, hence eight points - means eight-graha points (here rahu & ketu are combined). Eight directions are - east, west, south, north, north-east, north-west, south-east, south-west. Further, acupuncture combines one graha with the other, making it two-paired four steps therapy.
Almost all acupuncture text books tell a little on these points, because it is a separate branch and separate exclusive books called "eight extraordinary vessels", are available and these books exhaustively describe these eight-points. Out of these eight, four are ida and four are pingala.
Chinese have an ancient text called "I ching". It is a book on navagraha. There are a vast number of books on this subject and deal elaborately on astrology, numerology, divination, etc. It tells how the ida-pingala are made and how the numbers are created out of these ida & pingala. Broken line is ida - unbroken line is pingala and it navigates you to the sixty four - 8 × 8 - numbers. Ida & pingala are hidden in each number. "I ching numerology" is a very interesting subject.
On many occasions, many people go to astrologers. Astrologer tells him that such and such a graha is giving trouble and advise to perform such and such a homa. If one goes to an acupuncturist, he will needle the concerned graha point. It is such a simple treatment. Please study acupuncture. It not only teaches you an easy, safe, fast curing, and drugless therapy; it also teaches you a whole lot of Hindu cosmology/ philosophy.
