In the diagram above, which is the illustration from my forthcoming book, I have attempted to reconstruct the two dimensional structure of the Legendary Mountain Meru or Sumeru (the Mountain of God), with the proper assignment of the Seven Planets to its different levels, which on the microcosmic level correlated to the various levels of the individual awareness within the human body. I hope that this illustration could be much helpful for those who want to understand the inner principles of the Siddha Siddhanta, in its various formats, from tradition to tradition, as well as for the interpretation of the planetary relationship in the similarly structured inner traditions of the world.
In accordance with the general opinion, expressed in the Indian scriptures, there are the Fourteen Levels of Creation known as Lokas and Patalas; the Seven Higher, which are situated above (+) Zero Level (0) and called Seven Heavens, and seven lower, which are situated bellow (-) and called the Seven Regions of Netherworld. To speak approximately, the Four Higher regions are presided by the Moon and the Supreme Spirit, which resides at the topmost level known as Satya Loka or the Place of Truth. The three levels below them are ‘the Three Regions’ of the human existence: Bhūḥ, Bhuvaḥ and Svaḥ or Bhurloka, Bhuvarloka and Svarloka, presided by the Sun and the Lord of Senses and Mind Indra. The topmost of these three is the Heavens of Indra (Svarga), and signifies the most exited state of the human life experience.
