Depression/Determination OR Surya/Chandra

Depression/Determination. Depression is personified as a woman shrouded in darkness and gloom, determination as a man against a backdrop of the sun. The one-wheeled chariot signifies we can respond to our life events in any way we choose.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
The sannyasin balances within himself both the male and female energies. Complete unto himself, he is whole and independent. Having attained an equilibrium of ida and pingala, he becomes a knower of the known.
