New Insight on Svati Nakṣatra


From Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 2.10.20 I saw the word स्वति (svati) used (as नभस्वति – nabha-svati) to mean the wind/air blowing in and out of the nostrils (and also associated with Vāyu – the god of Svati Nakṣatra).

This is a good insight on why the most prevalent symbol of Svati Nakṣatra tends to be a plant bending in the wind.
