Might there be a connection between the Star of David and the pomegranate?
We have beforehand talked about the important thing encrypted inside the Star of David, the geometric form, just about mystical, which connects the normal events of Israel’s well-known kings with the stylish interval.
Now it is time to ponder whether or not or not the pomegranate, which is created by nature, might have been a provide of inspiration for the creation of the well-known picture – the Star of David.
Based mostly on historic Jewish customized, the pomegranate has 613 seeds. Everyone knows there are 613 commandments inside the Pentateuch (“TarYag Mitzvot”). In numerology the phrases “TarYag” equal 613 (Taf = 400, Reish = 200, Yod = 10, Gimel = three).
Persevering with this reasoning, the amount 613 broken down is 6+1+three, which equals 10. That brings us to the conclusion 1+zero equals 1.
In monotheistic religions equal to Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the #1 expresses God – “The One.”
One might question whether or not or not there are literally 613 seeds in each pomegranate (and whoever must, can start counting) – nevertheless by attempting on the pomegranate from the angle of Jewish customized, we uncover that the pomegranate may be found to relate to The One who, as King, is “1”, and fulfills the “Taryag Mitzvot.”
In a number of sources, we’re capable of uncover that the pomegranate’s color (purple) is claimed to the kingship – and using the numerology of the Hebrew language, one different comparability may be found between the phrases “pomegranate” and “king.” The numerology of the Hebrew phrase “Rimon” (pomegranate) is 200+10+40+6+50, and the numerology of “Melech” (king) is 40+30+20, which in each case has the equivalent numerology consequence (9).
Separating the numerology debate, one cannot deny that the pomegranate usually has a 6-pointed crown.
To broaden on this analogy, the RED (kingship) pomegranate (king) usually has a 6-pointed crown and the Star of David (The King) has 6 elements.
One cannot assist being impressed by the attainable have an effect on the pomegranate may need had on the design of the Star of David. One factor to ponder…
The digits “1” and “6” could be found inside the Golden Ration, the geometric constructing of Phi (Fibonacci Sequence), which is 1.6 (1.618 0339 887…). Those who have a developed sense of creativeness may say that the amount 18 expresses the phrase “chai” in Hebrew, and subsequently the King (1) who has the crown (6) is alive (18).
If one considers the inter-connection between the pomegranate and its crown (created by nature) on the one hand, and the Star of David with its six elements (created by man) nevertheless, and that every consequence within the expression of Phi (1 and 6) which speaks of nature and its many life sorts, then one might regard this to be a very curious coincidence definitely.
Israeli jewelers have commented that the tactic of constructing a Star of David pendant strikes them – not simply because it is the picture of the Jewish nation, nevertheless on account of it is an historic picture to which even people from completely different religions be a part of. With out primarily determining all the important thing teachings and thriller of numerology, Israeli jewelers create handmade Star of David pendants that blend top quality, type and color, suggestive of the interdependence of man and the cosmos.
