Vedic Mantra Chanting of Ketu
What does Ketu represent in Mythology?
According to the Avanti section of Skanda Purana, Ujjain is the birthplace of Ketu. Ketu is in the form of the torso of a demon named Swara Bhanu; Lord Vishnu cut off this head in Mohini avatar when churning the ocean; it is a shadow planet.
According to the story of Avanti Khand, the nectar that came out of the churning of the ocean was disturbed in the Mahakal forest; here, Lord Vishnu took the form of Mohini and made the gods drink nectar.
During this, a demon took the form of a deity and drank the nectar; then, Lord Vishnu severed the nectar, then Lord Vishnu severed his head from the body, remained alive, and was identified as Rahu and Ketu.
