Muhurta

Muhurta – Beneficial Date & Time for the auspicious events in our Life

Muhurta

There are mainly four sections with in Vedic Astrology. First one is Ganita, second one is Phalita, third one is Muhurta, and the last one is Prasna Astrology. Muhurta or electional astrology has a very important role in choosing appropriate date and time for conducting auspicious events in our life. For example events like  naming a child,starting school education for children, a marriage,constructing a house, house warming ceremony,  starting cultivation etc. There are a number of events in our life that are very important to us. During the Vedic period, much importance was given to Eelecting a particular date and time for such events. These are the happy moments of our life and Eelecting the right date and time is very very important for the auspiciousness of the event.

First and foremost, As a general rule we avoid the following days for any events!

1. Tuesday

2. Saturday

There is a lot of fire and air connected with those 2 days, so it is very much advisable to avoid those 2 days for any good events.

The event lagna and the karaka(significator) for the event should be an auspicious one for the event we are conducting. If we are doing a marriage, the Karaka for marriage should be in a favourable position. if we are starting a course or education, then Jupiter should be favorably placed from lagna or should be aspecting the lagna or the bhava of education etc.

Moon also play an important role in choosing the date and time. Chandra bala (strength) is very imporatnt for any event.If you remember, in the ancient days, the marriage was always conducted during the night when Chandra has control and more strength. even now in Northern part of India, marriage is conducted during the night. it is due to people preference it has been changed to day time, a typical example of  “New generation not showing due respect and consideration”  towards Vedic Astrology. There are a number of features associated with any day to check to arrive at a very auspicious date and time. So it is a tedious job for an astrologer to elect a favorable date and time for an event.

Soundarya Lahari

Recite Ananda Lahari – Vedic remedy for attaining the Complete Happiness

Devi

Soundarya Lahari means waves of beauty. It contains 100 stanzas which praises the beauty of AaDhi Para shakthi Devi. The first 41 stanza is known as Ananda Lahari( waves of happiness). It takes only 30 minutes to recite  the whole Aananda Lahari 1 full time. Regularly reciting this mantra would help one person to attain all his life long wishes & brings happiness in one’s life. I am only quoting 7 stanza from the Ananda Lahari that are specifically useful for people suffering from any sort of skin disease. Please recite this set of sloka on a daily basis after taking a bath in the morning, and sitting infront of Devi’s Photo, while offering her your Pujas & respect for Matha AaDhi Para Shakthi Devi ( Swaroop of Devi Parvathy can be considered as  Devi Aadhi Para Shakthi) – who is the ultimate resort for all living beings including the Thrimurtis in Puranas.

Sloka 1
Shivah shakthya yukto yadi bhavati shaktah prabhavitum
Na chedevam devo na khalu kusalah spanditumapi;
Atas tvam aradhyam Hari-Hara-Virinchadibhir api
Pranantum stotum vaa katham akrta-punyah prabhavati

Sloka 30
Sva-deh’odbhutabhir ghrnibhir animadyabhir abhito
Nishevye nitye tvamahamiti sada bhavayati yah;
Kim-ascharyam tasya tri-nayana-samrddhim trinayato
Maha-samvartagnir virchayati nirajana-vidhim.

Sloka 31
Cautuh-shashtya tantraih sakalam atisamdhaya bhuvanam
Sthitas tat-tat-siddhi-prasava-para-tantraih pasupatih;
Punas tvan-nirbandhad akhila-purusarth’aika ghatana-
Svatantram te tantram khsiti-talam avatitaradidam.

Sloka 32
Sivah saktih kamah kshitir atha ravih sithakiranah
Smaro hamsah sakrastadanu cha para-mara-harayah;
Amee hrllekhabhis tisrbhir avasanesu ghatitha
Bhajante varnaste tava janani nam’avayavatham.

Sloka 33
Smaram yonim lakshmim trithayam idam adau tava manor
Nidhay’aike nitye niravadhi-maha-bhoga-rasikah;
Bhajanti tvam chintamani-guna-nibaddh’aksha-valayah
Sivagnau juhvantah surabhi-ghrta-dhara’huti-sataih.

Sloka 34
Sariram twam sambhoh sasi-mihira-vakshoruha-yugam
Tav’atmanam manye bhagavati nav’ atmanam anagham;
Atah seshah seshityayam ubhaya-saadharana taya
Sthitah sambandho vaam samarasa-parananda-parayoh.

Sloka 35
Manas tvam vyoma tvam marud asi marut saarathir asi
Tvam aastvam bhoomis tvayi parinathayam na hi param;
Tvam eva svatmanam parinamayithum visva-vapusha
Chidanand’aakaram Shiva-yuvati-bhaavena bibhrushe.

Sloka 36
Tavaagna chakrastham thapana shakthi koti dhyudhidharam,
Param shambhum vande parimilitha –paarswa parachitha
Yamaradhyan bhakthya ravi sasi suchinama vishaye
Niraalokeloke nivasathi hi bhalokha bhuvane

Those people who are suffering from any sort of dermatic condition( skin disease), the above is the most powerful mantra for them. This is all about the beautiful explanation of Adhi Para Shakthi Devi’s Swaroop from head to foot. Even though it may appear as if it is praising Devi’s swaroop, actually it is explaining how the universe and the beings are created from the day 1 of creation. If you could recite the whole 41 Stanza, that would be really good, if not Sloka 1 is to start with, then  sloka 30 to 36 would be very helpful for curing any disease associated with your skin. Please recite this for a period of 9 months continuously. Please try to get the Soundarya lahari mantra book in your local language so that you can learn and recite it with out any error. There are plenty of books available in the market. for people who do not have skin disease, please recite the whole 41 stanza.

This is a time proven astrological remedy for skin disease, I am 100 percent sure you would start seeing the result if  done continuously with devotion for a period of 9 months.

Best Regards

Buying a Car

Auspicious time for buying a Car

In a Horoscope, Fourth house is called Vahana Sthana. Venus is the planet of Pleasure, Luxury, so naturally Venus become the karaka for the Vehicle. Mars represents the structural aspect of the Vehicle as Mars is for metal, engineering. machine etc. The function of the car or a Vehicle is to transport people, or conveyance. Transportation is the use of the car. Mercury is the planet associated with transportation, short distance travel, Comunication etc. so Mercury also needs to be considered while buying or selling a car.

Benefic aspect on the 4th house, 4th lord, or Venus would be very helpful for the purchase of a car when the favourable maha dasa or sub dasa is running, or even by a good planet transit over the 4th house. The association of the benefic planet could be by aspect or conjunction.

Please make sure these planets are in direct motion during the time you are buying a car. That is the 4th lord, Venus and Mercury. If those planets are afflicted, the structural and the functional aspect of the car would be seriously affected in the future. The Ascendant at the time of buying the car is also very important to consider. it should be free from afflictions as well.

Child Birth

Child Birth as seen from the Horoscope

Child birth is seen from the 5th house. 5th house is also a love making, entertainment house. No wonder why children are associated with the 5th house ! Jupiter is the karaka for children. A positive 5th house is conducive to the birth of a healthy baby. Maraca planet aspecting the 5th house, present in the 5th house, aspecting the 5th lord, conjunct the 5th lord bring tension related with child birth. Maraca influence result in delay in child birth, some times premature child birth, abortion etc possible. the first rate maraca in a chart are the 6th , 8th , and 12th lord, also the natural maraca planets plays a difficult role. All these difficulties can be clearly seen from the chart.

Udhara sthan (Stomach) is very important to consider. Fiery and Dry planet like Mars and Sun are not helpful for the development of foetus, where as natural benefic and wet planets like moon or Venus would help much either by aspect on 5th house presence in the 5th house. As usual the maraca for the 5th house children related issues are the 6th house and 11th house. Those 2 lords malefic influence would not help for the children matters, especially if the mother is running the main period or sub period of those maraca lord.

The obvious patterns that delays or prohibit the child birth are Rahu present in the 5th house, Jupiter the Karaka for children present in the 5th house there by making Karako Bhava Nasah. Of course the Jupiter and Rahu if both present in the 5th house would make the situation much worse. 6th house, 8th house and 12th house from the 5th house, their house lords, position etc has to be considered while analysing the horoscope for the progeny issues.

Your Horoscope chart would also show how many children you would have, also the gender of the children.

Couples who are having problem with child birth, please feel free to post your details and I could analyse your horoscope and suggest remedial measures!

Change of Residence

Change of Residence

In a horoscope, Fourth house represents our home sweet home. It also represents mother, tolerance, caring, family affections, our attachment to home, relatives, land, property etc. An astrologer can look at your 4th house and easily tell how strong the family lineage is for a person. It also represents our formal education.

12th from the 4th house represents the ‘Loss’ of all those areas I mentioned above. Loss does not always literally means “loss” “loss”, but some worries or change in those matters. So if you are heading for a residence change, it is looked at from the 3rd house. It really does not matter whether you look at the change of residence in the ‘loss’ format. For you it could be a pleasant change but for some others it may be a worry. In both the case, it is analysed from the 3rd house. we would also look at the 6th and 8th from the 4th house as these positions represents the Maraka for the 4th house matters.The change of residence could be a change between towns or states or even from one continent to another.

Remember, even during early 20th century, living away from own home, away from parents are considered to be a sin and a loss! so whether you are happy with the change or not, in Vedic terms it is still considered as a Loss 🙂 and Vedic way of living is dated back to 2000 years BC, and that makes perfect sense when I say ‘Loss’ of house.

Now about the timing, the change of residence could come during the Maha Dasa or Sub Dasa period of the 3rd house lord. that is not the only condition, a malefic aspect over the 3rd house by a transit would also trigger a change of residence. But that does not always mean this would happen in all sub dasa period of the 3rd lord. If in the big picture of your destiny, a change of residence is needed, then this would manifest during the sub dasa or pratyantar dasa period of a Major maha Dasa or even by a malefic aspect. That is the key point here.

Interestingly, Looking at the Lagna, and the Atmakaraka planet, Vedic Astrology can really tell you which direction or area (region) of the country you would prosper in life and career matters. for example north of India, South of India OR even tell you the part of the Planet earth where you could have a successful Life compared to the place of birth.

Those professionals who longing for an on site or offshore projects 🙂 would be interested to know when they could get an abroad chance, when they could relocate from one place to another? even a times the wife of a person would be looking for a family reunion as her husband has got a transfer to a distant location or vice versa. Vedic astrology has answer to all your day to day life issues. It is just that a learned astrologer should zoom into the are of interest and uncover the business around that area. One of the reason why I call Vedic astrology as a Guiding beam of Light! Of course we need this sort of light in the darkness!

That is all about Vedic Astrology and Change of residence.

Finance Assets & Inheritance

Vedic Astrology – Finance, Assets & Inheritance

Finance is traditionally seen from the 2nd house in a horoscope. Fixed Deposits, Liquid cash etc are seen from the 2nd house. Benefic planets placed in the 2nd house are very good for earning finance. Of course if these benefic planets have good lordship that would be the best combination.

For example if 11th house lord (lordship) is placed in 2nd house, it is very good. 11th is for gains. 10th house lord placed in 2nd house is very good. This mean earn from profession as 10th is for career. 7th lord placed in 2nd house is very good as it would mean finance via business or foreign connection or even from the life partner.

The other house of interest for fixed assets, family, land, and property is looked at from the 4th house of family happiness. This house generally represents mother, land, property, agriculture, conveyance etc. In order to get an auspicious result, the above rule I mentioned applies here as well. That is exchange of a good lordship planet with 4th house or 4th lord.

The other house we look at for finance is the house of inheritance. That is the 8th house. The inheritance could be through the father or the mother or any other family members, or friends or from any one for that matter. If the 8th house is well placed, or the 8th house is well aspected, then there is great possibility of you inheriting from elders. The best example is Ambani brothers, where they inherited from their father after their father expired.

A house of sudden money is the 6th house of speculation. Whether you are good at speculation is also can be seen from the chart. Many people do take lottery and participate in raffles. But are they all lucky to get it? No. only a handful of people is lucky. Whether gambling would make you a millionaire or a bankrupt, these can be seen from your chart!

Business is seen from the 7th house. Also the karaka for business is mercury; the 3rd house also represents Trade. Same rule applies here as well. Benefic planets aspecting the 7th house, placed in the 7th house, aspecting the 7th lord, placed along with 7th lord etc would help. The same way we have to consider 3rd house, its lord and then finally the Trade Karaka mercury.

11th house is for gains. Have a look at where the 11th lord is placed. This would tell us from which area from which you are going to gain. 11th placed in the 3rd house would mean gains through siblings as 3rd represents your siblings or even from the business as 3rd also represents Trade. 11th lord placed in 7th house would mean, you gain from your partner, business or from a foreign land.

Now you know what makes a billionaire or a millionaire different from ordinary people!

When we analyse horoscope of people like Bill Gates, Ratan Tata, Ambani brothers we clearly see the Billionaire effect. Other people might have one or two or even three combinations for making money, but billionaires have all of them which make them stand out in the crowd. Of course this is well connected with one’s own past karma. So there is no point in moaning by thinking or saying I do not have much finance, because even before you were born, your sole has decided a road map for this birth & life in which the money factors are well agreed. Our current birth is the result of the old deeds we have done in the past. We call it residual karma.
