Hinduism - What Is The Place And Role Of Jupiter In The Hindu Pantheon?

 


A planet connected with education, power, and excellent character in Hindu astrology.

Jupiter's name in Sanskrit is guru, and its significance in Hindu astrology reflects the guru or religious figure's centrality in Hindu religious life.

Jupiter is the most powerful of the benign planets (the sun, moon, Mercury, and Venus being the others), yet Jupiter's capabilities vary depending on its position in the natal horoscope, or the alignment of the celestial bodies at the moment of birth, and the effect of friendly or hostile planets.

During the week, Jupiter rules Thursday, which is considered an auspicious, or fortunate, day due to the planet's astrological qualities.
