Bhrigu Maharishiās Blessings

Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi -1

By Saptarishis Astrology 1

I n Vedic astrology there is only one method of timing events of oneās life which is ĀDasa in conjunction with Transitsā. It is not allowed to use transits in solitude though there are paramparas (traditions) who use only transits and no dasas (Late Ravindra Desaiās

Parampara). Astrologer by the end of life admit that Vimshottari dasa is toughest, also the disadvantage of using dasa is it gives generally a very broad range of period in terms of timing events and if one gets the dasa of bigger period planets like Saturn, Jupiter, Venus etc then the antar dasa is sometimes of 3 yrs, what to do when someone wants a date of an event, forget date we are unable to even predict the year of an event. Forget the year; we are unable to even predict with all honesty & 100% accuracy if in a subperiod an event will happen or not. To predict what will happen in a current year we refer to Varshaphal method which savants say is not Vedic. For years we wrote on several Jyotish Internet Forums that timing of events as we practice today is not the original method of the sages but obviously such bold statements discarding what Indian Astrologers have been doing for thousands of years would be considered lunacy of a kid. For years we struggled at how to pinpoint the date of an event and got some success in 2004 but due to no software maker ready to incorporate it we had to shelve it as it involved lot of calculations though our friend Jay Weiss in Sweden developed an excel software for it. Then in 2006 when we had left astrology for nearly 6 months something happened and we got the method which gives us a hint of something very ancient. This method we had gotten few years earlier than 2006 but had forgotten about it completely hence the excitement of a kid when we got it back. Before that we must pay obeisance to those souls who were instrumental behind this methodology which has gone ignored and not yet revealed by anyone. Though the truth is we discovered as late as 27 th June 2008, 10.45 pm that Late J N Bhasin had written 4 lines on it. In the course of years we also realized that one or two practitioners use it secretly e.g. Shri P.D.Sharma from Delhi whose guru is Mauni Baba uses it and we realized when after knowing only the

Asc and age of person, Mr. Sharma predicted 3 events i.e. without knowing any other planet in the chart Mr. Sharma had predicted 3 events for the concerned year. As we had worked on this method for some years we realized he is using this method only. Without paying Obeisance it is considered a sin hence Obeisance to 2 events:‐

1) In ĀThe Last Book of Astrologyā which is the greatest book ever on astrology as per us and which some natives do not want to be published as everyone can gain benefit from it, there is a dialogue between a student and the Yogi whose name is Babaji, whose name is featured in our credits list. Babaji gives a chart to the student and asks him to predict when the marriage will happen and how he will go about deducing it. The student says he would use Vimshottari Dasa & then combine it with transits. The Yogi slapped on back of the students head and said when was Vimshottari Dasa discovered, what about astrology before these dasas. Does not the universe have a system imbibed within the basic natal chart (Rasi chart)? The student said how this is possible no astrologer or sage has written about it. The yogi replied that they have written but it is lost or coded as of now but should you not think on what was the system of timing of events before you guys discovered transits, before the 1 st panchangas was written. ParaBrahman (The Lord) obviously is more intelligent to see to it that within his nasargik kundali of an individual (Rasi chart) everything about that individual is contained therein. All these dasas, transits everything was discovered many thousands of years later by you all.

The above made us think for a long time and we thought that what we had done in 2004, obviously there must be something similar & simpler than that.

2) In 2006 our mentor called up and said you have not being doing astrology for 6 months why donāt you now try to decode the system of predicting significant years of oneās life. He said predicting the significant events of oneās life is the ĀRishi Wayā (one gets a glimpse of it from nadis too). We said if no one has been able to do it successfully in a repeatable method, then how can we do It.? He said in Chandra Kala Nadi there is this system but it is encoded and you must try to decode it. It was at this time that we had called Shri C.S.Patel and asked him ĀChandubhai, you have never taught me Dhruv Nadi, pls teach me, you see I love Dhruva a lot and so I must learn the secrets of Dhruv Nadiā. He replied in his strict tone ĀNo, concentrate on Chandrakala Nadi, it is the bestttā. We felt dejected and depressed quite a lot but Gurus words never go to waste if one takes it in all its honesty and we thought even mentor has assigned us to work on Chandra Kala Nadi so we shall do it.

We spent 2 hrs outside a Trial Theatre 2 a place where movie was going on inside and then it hit us, the method had become decoded, it seemed to work. Next day we called mentor and said with the excitement of a kid Āwe have done itā, he asked preliminaries and liked it and then flew down from Delhi to Mumbai. We sat for 12 hrs at a stretch and he said this is similar to a lost method of Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi, but we did not feel inclined to use the name of Sage Bhrighu as today everything is sold in the name of Bhrighu thanks to scrupulous writers and publishers. Even K.N.Rao has given up on finding the Bhrighu

Paddathi 3 so we called it Chandra Kala Nadi Progression for 2 years, shared it with few of our friends & today even our good friend Shri Madhav Rao Deshmukh only uses this

method for his stunning predictions. But as we were to write for this August issue, mentor lovingly gave us adesh (instructions) to dedicate it to Sage Bhrighu who is indeed very loved by us too. This is the same method as mentioned in Publitorial & similar to Padma Chakra method of Shri Bhavasar except he had 2 generations of experience in it which is noteworthy.

This method is so important that we must stretch this introduction and say that for 2 yrs on over more than 600 charts ĀWe have not used Dasa or Transits at all to time events to the year and at times to the dayā. The secret behind this method is in the movie Zorro which also contains the best secret for astrologers which is when Anthony Hopkins starts the training of Zorro (Antonio Bendarasās). Therein he says about the 7 circles (Ring of Saptarishis) and how as we progress to the inner circle the diameter reduces, itās akin to only one technique (of astrology) left with you for lifetime and you use only ONE technique forever, imagine the mastery that you would achieve out of it. With this method your predictive skills improve so drastically that it is unimaginable but then one should be good in yogas, lordships and basics of astrology otherwise this technique is useless.

1. Take the 1 st house of your chart (Ascendant) to be the 1 st year of your life.

2. The 2 nd house will be the 2 nd year of your life and so on and the 12

th

house will be the

12 th year of your life.

3. Then the chakra will rotate and come again to the 1 st house which will become the 13 th year of your life.

4. Thus the 12 th house will be always 12 th year, 24 th year, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84.

1 st House = 1, 13, 25, 37, 49, 61õõõõ. Years of Oneās life 2 nd House=2, 14, 26, 38, 50, 62õõõõ.Years of Oneās life

Although, this looks similar to Sage Parasaras Sudarshan Chakra Method but it is not so if as otherwise so many astrologers by now would have been able to predict the year and date of the event. Trust us on this. As we go further you would realize that Bhrighu Chakra Paddathi is far different & is not based on 3 lagnas combination of Sudarshan Chakra Method of BPHS, that also is not used by astrologers in their practice.

Chandra Kala Nadi

Let us test it on few verses of Chandra Kala Nadi (Deva Kerelam hence ref as C.K.N or D.K), also you would find that this matches with 80% of the shlokas contained in Chandra Kala Nadi

D.K: Book: 3 by R. Santhanam, Sagar Publications, New Delhi.

1)

The native will lose his father in his 27 th year of age. Even if he escapes death, 32 nd year will surely cause his end.

Shloka 2053‐2061 point (f) Leo Asc

Notes: See 27 th year would be 27‐24=3H of death and 32 nd year would be 32‐24=8H of death again, so the shloka here hints some death happening in the family, further on from 9H of father it is 7H of maraca (ref 3H) & also 12H of Exit (ref 8H).

2)

In his 27 th year in the 3 rd dasa he will have a re‐marriage.

3)

b) His happiness will commence after his 20 th year of age

Shloka: 2373‐2377 ü Ta Asc

Notes: 20 th year is 8H, after 20 th year is 21 st which is 21‐12=9 th House of Fortune, hence bhayga commenced in the 21 st year.

4) Shloka: 2473‐2476‐ Aries Asc c) During the 33 rd or 27 th year of age, in the 3 rd dasa, the nativesā father will be endangered. At that time Saturn will be in transit in Aries or in Pisces.

Notes: See chart below, 33 rd year will be 9 th house of father and Tr Saturn in Aries will be trine to fathers house causing danger or even if Tr Sat is in Pisces then it aspects the 10H

aspect to 9H of father causing grief to father. Now see 27 th will be (27‐24) 3 rd house of death and opposite fathers house or you can say 6 th from 10 th house of father for those who use 10 th as father.

His marriage will take place in the sub period of the lord of the ascendant during the 2 nd dasa. There are divergent views that the marriage will be in the sub period of Rahu or in the 16 th year or in the 14 th year.

Notes: 14 th year would be 14‐12=2 nd house of family or way to family as it is said which means

year would be 16‐12=4 th house of Settlement in oneās home life, pls note these

two are the most important houses for marriage which has been ignored in the last few decades by astrologers. Can we remember our parents here who always keep on coaxing us to get married and settle down (4H) in life, get stability (4H) in life? When man marries he comes home early to meet his wife everyday at his home (4H). In hindi 4H is called Grahasth means Grashth Jeevan one of the 4 aims of life as per our culture. Hence how can we ignore 4H for marriage?

b) For one born in the 1 st half of the subject nadiamsa marriage will be in the 12 th year

Note: 12H of sex, when one marries he normally gets bed pleasures so 12H must be activated.

Due to lack of space we ask readers to dig out the shlokas in Deva Kerelam and you would find this working on hundreds of shlokas.

Queries:

183

1. The most obvious query is 1 st to 12 th house is the 1 st to 12 th year of oneās life so what

happens in the 13 th year, wouldnāt it be the same event that happen in the 1 st year of oneās life.

This is where most of our friends whom we shared this method stopped as they used analytical mind. The answer though is obvious but letās observe that the transits will not be the same as it was in the 1 st year, 13 th year, 25 th year and so on. So combine this method with transits as it is hinted in Shloka No 4 above. But at the same time we must indicate that to Master this Method, for first Six months do not use transits at all. The best way to master any method is to remove as many parameters as possible and make it simple. Let us take some example charts.

2. How to differentiate between what would be the type of event between two years e.g

16 th year of 4H and 28 th year of 4 th house. This is tricky and the key, so letās look at it this way, we have 12 houses for which we have combinations (yogas) that describe all the 18000 events that happen in our life so obviously each house has around 1000 plus events embedded in it out of which some will fructify now & some later & some never, we should then use naisargik fructification age, the age of yoga result & Kaal. Suppose you get the 5H as the worst house then in any one or two or all (depending on transits & TYMJW K HYTW ) the years 5, 17, 29, 41, 53õõõ will be worst.

He posted it on Sept 11th 2007 which means death happened in the 24 th year, so we see the 12H, over there exalted Saturn is sitting, the dispositor of which has gone into the 9H (note 9H) with 6L & AscL Mars (accidents & 6H karaka) and again in the 6 th from 4H of vehicles (he might not have died by vehicle as Mr Kaushik did not specify exact nature of death) Mars aspects the 24 th year (12H).

French Roman Catholic nun canonized in 1925. A model of simplicity, sincerity, patience and devotion, she suffered with TB and died of a pulmonary hemorrhage 9/30/1897, 7:30PM, Lisieux, France at the age of 25. Now, Mercury Ketu confirms TB.

25 th year:

25‐24=1 st house of health & life, here Mars the 8L & 3L of lungs is sitting trine to Rahu & Saturn two malefics. 1H is the house of new beginning and her Atma (Mars is AK) got a new beginning. Another way to see is 8H is of chronic diseases so when 8L comes to lagna remember it as ĀChronic diseases (8H) coming to Self (1H) or death (8H) coming on self (1H) hence death can happen in 25 th year.

On the day of death Saturn, Moon, Ven were on her 1H, Saturn her 8L combined all this energy and aspected the Bhrighu Chakra Bindu i.e. 3H of 25 th year giving death.

Gripping of Planets

by the Nodes 1

By Babubhai N.Yodh, India.

O ur subject is based on Nodes. Therefore, let us understand what Nodes are. Nodes (Rahu

and ketu) are considered in Hindu astrology as equivalent to planets, but they are not physical bodies. They are only calculated points having immense effect over the life of nativities on Earth. Moon is a natural satellite of Earth, which rotates around the Earth. The Earth with its satellite revolves around the sun and moon in its orbit crosses the ecliptic. There are two points of intersections, each 180 degree away from each other known as North Nodes or Dagonās head and South Node or Dragonās tail. Nodes are considered shadowy planets ‐ in the darkness, one cannot see any object and he has to only imagine. Therefore, it is very difficult for astrologer to predict correctly on the basis of Nodes in the chart of Native.

Indian astrology compares Nodes to a Dragon. The mouth of a dragon is called North Node ‐ Rahu and tail of the dragon is called South Node‐ Ketu A dragon kills its pray by encircling the tail around its body. While killing anyone, the tail is important for a dragon, therefore, South Nodes (Ketu) is more harmful than the North Nodes (Rahu)?

1 Shri Yodhās research on nodes is famous since decades & is published in his book in Gujurati. This article has been freshly written again by his kind self for Saptarishis Astrology.

The nodes represent (act like) the lord of the sign in which they are deposited. For e.g., if North Node (Rahu) is in Leo sign, then that Node represent the characteristic of sun & house in which it is occupied.

Similarly, the South Node in Aquarius will give the characteristic of Saturn.

However, the degree of Saturn is1-1 and the degree of Nodes is 22-45 – The
However, the degree of Saturn is1-1 and the
degree of Nodes is 22-45 – The difference
between them in degree is 21-44. Therefore,
Saturn is not gripped due to difference in degree
more than 10. However, Jupiter is gripped
because the difference in degree between Jupiter
and Nodes is only 3-13.

As nodes are the dark portions in the Birth chart of an individual, the interpretation about the matters indicated by nodes will be incorrect for n astrologer because of darkness

concerning the nodes. Most of the interpretations based on nodes are therefore haphazard.

To understand how Nodes grip a planet or planets, remember the rules given below.

1. A planet in conjunction, opposition or in square to Nodes will be gripped.

(1.a) But only when the degree of Node is more that the degree of the planets. E.g. Rahu 25 deg & Ven 20 deg.

(1‐b) The difference between Node and the planet is less than 10 or 12 degrees and then a planet is considered gripped. The closest grip will be within 5 degrees difference between Node & planet.

However, the degree of Saturn is1-1 and the degree of Nodes is 22-45 – The
However, the degree of Saturn is1-1 and the degree
of Nodes is 22-45 – The difference between them in
degree is 21-44. Therefore, Saturn is not gripped due
to difference in degree more than 10. However, Jupiter
is gripped because the difference in degree between
Jupiter and Nodes is only 3-13.

when

gripped by the Node will give the following effect. (2‐a) Nodes will give adverse results of the matters of the house owned by the gripped planets

2. The

planet

(2‐b) House occupied by gripped planet are not beneficial at all.

3. A Node completes the cycle of twelve signs in about 18 years.

(3‐a) When a Node is giving adverse result in birth chart at particular period, again it well

give adverse result after 18 years. (3‐b) Fractions of this 18 year there are every four & half year. Therefore, at the period of every four & half years, the native will experience the adverse result. For the clarification of the rules the following birth charts are given‐Chart‐I

Explanation of the gripped planets:‐

2. Jupiter & Saturn are square with Nodes.

Degree of mars 2 is 16‐18 and degree of Node is 22‐45 Degree of Nodes is more than Mars and difference between the degree of North Node and Mars is 6‐27. Hence, Mars is gripped by Nodes.

The houses gripped by Nodes via Mars are 9 th , 4th & 6 th . Houses 9 th and 4 th are owned by Mars & 6 th is the house in which mars is deposited.

According to rules given, Jupiter and Saturn are square to Nodes. Degree of Nodes is more than these planets. Therefore, these planets are ĀAlsoā gripped.

However, the degree of Saturn is1‐1 and the degree of Nodes is 22‐45 ü The difference between them in degree is 21‐44. Therefore, Saturn is not gripped due to difference in degree more than 10. However, Jupiter is gripped because the difference in degree between Jupiter and Nodes is only 3‐13.

The result of Moon will be adversely & negatively experienced by 10 th and 5 th house. The native is the son of a leading industrialist in Ahmadabad City. At the age of 26, during the year 1987‐88. The native was offered the post of a manager in one of the prosperous industrial units but as fate would have it, the native failed to prosper as per expectation.

As per astrological principle, the 10 th house shows the credit in the career, but if this house is spoiled, then one has to suffer in the career. In the above chart, the lord of 10 th house is placed in the 5 th house which indicates the proper working of the intelligence and discriminationsā. But due to gripping of the Moon by Ketu, both the houses i.e. 10 th and 5 th , is spoiled and giving adverse result to the Native made improper changes in the Industrial Unit and also took hasty decisions.

Lord of seventh house Jupiter is gripped. In the above chart, the lord of 4 th and 7 th house is Jupiter and Jupiter occupies the Ascendant in conjunction with South Node. As per the rule the degree of the Node should be more than the degree of the gripped planet. Here the degree

194

of south Nodes is 5‐10 and degree of Jupiter is 3‐50, the difference between them in degree is 1‐20. Therefore, Jupiter is adversely gripped by south Node.

adversely and negatively experienced by

the matter indicated by 4 th , 7

Even the boy friend of the Native who was in contact with her, did not agree to marry her at the end. Finally, at this age of 39, she is still unmarried.

and also 1 st

th

The transit of North Node and south Node during the year 1987 was in the sign of Pisces and Virgo at the age of 28 year of the Native. There were chances at that time to get married, but due to adverse effect of gripping of Jupiter by nodes, it was not finalized & she lost the chance.

Conclusion:

The Nodes grip the planets in natal chart and gives adverse results during the transit period of the Nodes. This principle has given astonishing results in predictions & one can observe that the methodology is extremely simple & lucid. This author has painstakingly derived this principle on his own after observing thousands of charts over a period of several decades, hence he requests the younger generation to not do the mistake of just reading this article only, but to test it immediately on minimum 25 charts upon reading this piece & that too at one go whereby it would register in their mind and some finer

methods can come out which they can share with us. In the next issue, we shall present some finer methods in this series of ĀGripping of the Nodesā.

S ky has always fascinated human psyche as the history of Astronomy suggests. When we look at sky it

evokes mixed feelings of joy, wonder, admiration, mysticism and challenge. It has an unconscious yet constantly expanding horizon of individual human consciousness and has transformed into social consciousness because sky is one of those natural phenomena which is common to all. With its early advent from anthropocentric universe to geo‐centric universe and from geocentric to heliocentric universe and from there to galaxy centric universe; from multi‐ galactic cosmos up to Cosmology of universal oneness, our awareness about Āweā has undergone a paradigm shift every time affecting our understanding of global relationships. Sky has also contributed in the advancement of mathematics, science and philosophy.

V.Komarov, science writer has observed that if we trace the history of many sciences we find that mankind has been

206

immensely benefited by the study of the universe 1 . Einstein had every reason to say that intellectual potential, without which modern technology would have been inconceivable, is mainly drawn on observations of the stars.

1.1‐Indian Astronomers‐Astrologers through cultural synergy with Central Asia between early 8 th century to 12 th century have also contributed in the advancement of various sciences particularly astronomy and mathematics and also astrology. This Indo‐Arab relationship gave both momentum and direcion to this ĀExpansion‐of consciousness‐missionā carried out by mankind in this part of world, when Europe was in slumber 2 . The Arabic translation of Sanskrit Greek and other literature later translated in Latin provided a great help to

European great Renaissance or reawakening from around 11 th ‐12 th acknowledged by many European scholars and historians

century AD onwards as

1.2‐After Mohammad Sahib, Caliph Al Mansoor founded Baghdad in 762AD Indian scholars visited the Caliph during 772‐773 AD with Astronomical Astrological books, which were

translated in Arabic, on the order of Al Mansoor. Confirming this, Ebenezer Berges in his translation (1860) of Surya Siddhant of Hindu Astronomy has quoted Bin Al Admi from the astronomical tables of planetary positions worked out by Admi and published in 920AD that during the regime of Caliph Al Mansoor (773AD) one Indian Astrologer visited the court along with table of planets, observations on eclipses and coordinates of zodiacal signs. This fact was also quoted by

Colebrooke

of zodiacal signs. This fact was also quoted by Colebrooke in his ĀHindu Algebraā 2 .

in his ĀHindu Algebraā 2 .

1.3‐At that time, arithmetic, geometry, spherical trigonometry and algebra were part of Astronomy. In Arabic two works are most famous: SindHind and Al Arkand, both were translation of BrahmaGuptaās Braahma Sphuta Siddhantas Sindhind and Khand Khandak as Al Arkand These works were translated by Persian scholar Yakoob Ibn Taatiq and Arabian AlFazaariās son Mohammad in Arabic with the help of Indian Pundits. Later on several translations were done and Al Beruni (973‐1048AD) also did one.

1.4‐Edward C. Sachau, a German scholar who translated Al‐Beruni has observed that in the history of science and knowledge in eastern countries, Brahmagupta ranks very high.Brahmagupta taught Astronomy‐Astrology to Arabs before they came to know about Ptolemy 3 . From Brahmaguptaās Brahmasphuta Siddhant, Arabic scholar Ibrahim Ibn Habib‐ Al‐Phazaari took basic elements and computation method and prepared tables in Mohammadan lunar months.

1.5‐Yakoob Ibn Taarik authored Tarqueeb‐Al‐Aflaaqor Construction of Astronomical Sphere based on elements of Brahmagupta brought by another group of scholars in 161Hizri or 777‐778AD in Baghdad from India.

1.6‐Great Islamic Mathematician Al Khwaarismi (b783 AD) authored two books on Indian ganita and Beeja ganita‐ĀHisaab Al Hindā or ĀKitaab al zaamā and ĀTafreek Bi Hisaab Al Hindā explaining zero based decimal place value mathematics Number system called Hind

Kaa Hisaab. Hisaab al Hind is not available in Arabic but was found from Spainās Arabic

AD) in Latin as NGJW Q TWN_ N J Z JWT S ZWZ meaning book of

Alkhwarizmi on Hindās Numbers. 1.7‐Impact of the work titled ĀAlkhwarizmi on Hindās Numbersā on Europe was so great that Indian Number System was named as Alkhwarismi now known as Algorithm in Mathematics. AlKhwarizmi has called the Indian Numerals used in the book as Haroof Al Gubaar. Gunakar Muley 4 has pointed out that these numbers are Indian which were developed from Brahmi script. Muley further strengthens his assertion by bringing a manuscript written in Spain in 976AD.It should be remembered that Spain was under Islamic rule and to quote Rahul Sankratyaayan, SpainĀs capital Kardova had become Baghdad of the West in the matter of knowledge and culture during 10 th century. 5

center (1126

Sanskrit word Jeeba in trigonometry was translated as J‐B. Latin translation mistook it for Jeb or pocket on chest and translated it sinus or chest which is now called þsineÿ in English is an example of the impact of Indo‐Arabic relations on European re‐awakening.

Alkhwarizmi was born in Kheewa city of Khwarism region of todayās Uzbekistan of Central Asia. Al Beruni (793‐1048) was also born here.

1.8‐ Indian Astronomer Aryabhat (b476AD) was first in Astronomy to expound daily rotation of Earth. Abul Hasan Al Ahwaazi compiled his theories of planetary motions as þAl Arjbhadÿ during 8 th century AD. Faizi in Persian translated Bhaskaracharyaās Leelavati a book on mathematics in 1587AD.

Thereāre hundreds works which deal with contribution of Indian astronomer‐ mathematicians ranging from value of Pi to different branches of mathematics, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, spherical trigonometry etc and the joint impact of Indo‐Arabic literature on European thought process. However, only an outline has been given here to arouse curiosity among scholars and readers for further exploration in Indo‐Arab cultural relations.

2. Ramal Vidya

2.1‐Ramal or the art of prediction through dice is an excellent example of cultural synergy. It is based on four elements fire or aatashi, air or khhaarva, water or aabi and earth or baadi of saankhya philosophy.

2.2‐Science historian Paul Tannery (1897 AD) translates Ilm Ul Ramal as Sand Time or Āearth elementā based time calculation which in my opinion is erroneous. It reminds Dhooli Karma because in India mathematic earlier was called Dhooli Karma ü spreading dust or sand on a board or earth for calculation, which was translated in Arabic as Haruf Al Gubaar, as pointed out while referring to AlKhwarizmi.

2.3‐However, names of all 16 shapes formed on dice‐ kabzul daakhil etc are Arabic and its muhurta is based on moonās counting in Hizri calendar. This leads us to ascribe Ramal to Arabic origin.

2.4‐S.B.Dixit in his monumental work on History of Indian Astrology 6 has disproved this assumption with a chronological analysis on the basis of a book found by Babur a European

208

scholar written between 350‐500AD and mentioned in ĀBengal Asiatic Societyā Journals which mentions Ramal type system of answering questions with Sanskrit and Prakrat nouns. Dixit further refers to GargSamhita of Tanjor Museum, which contains a chapter with 235 Shlokas on Paashavali, þPaashÿ in Sanskrit means þDiceÿ. He therefore concludes that since Sanskrit books were lost, later Sanskrit books on Paashavali or Ramal were written from Arabic text basis. Whatever might be the fact the Vidya of Ramal is an excellent exmple of Indo‐Arabic exchange of knowledge.

3. Annual Horoscopy

3.1‐In this system planetary chart is worked out for the moment when the sun after completing one year arrives at the same degrees in birth chart this system is called Taazik which is an Arabic Word. All its 16 planetary combinations employed in predictions are Arabic in name like Itthashaal Eeshraaf etc. However, mutual degree‐wise angles of planets called Dristis or aspects are Arabic and differ from traditional Hindu Natal Horoscopy despite their names being in Sanskrit. Again in assessing strength of planet Hadda strength is used in Taazik only which is nowhere used in any Indian predictive system while working out six fold strength of a planet called shad‐bala.

3.2‐In 1592 Balbhadra who living with King Shah Shuza authored ĀHaayan Ratnaā on Taazik System of prediction and acknowledged its Arabic origin by stating Āyavanacharyen paarseek bhaashayam praneetamā jyotish shastra etc.

3.3‐It is pertinent to note that AlFazari and Al Beruni while translating predictive astrology from Sanskrit to Arabic has adopted 1 day =1 year system which was later adopted by westerners as secondary direction system of prediction for one year this is acknowledged by Alfraid Pears in his Text Book of Astrology written some 100 years ago. 7 Nevertheless, all these systems are somewhat different from Taazik Annual system of prediction.

4. Sawai Jai Singhās Observatories

4.1‐When European Astronomers were following circular orbits of planets Jai Singh (1686‐ 1743AD) had discovered elliptical orbits. During the regime of Mohammad Shah, Jai Singh worked out new tables of planetary positions after rectifying astronomical tables of Mirza Ulug Beg, which had accumulated difference of 4 degrees and 8 minutes of arc by then. These tables are contained in his work called ZizMohammad Shahi for determination of Hindu and Muslim festivals more accurately.

4.2‐Sawai Raja also constructed Astronomical observatories in five places with due consent from his ruler Mohmmad Shah, for more accurate positions of planets including the moon which was crucial in determining Hindu and Muslim festivals as both were moon based, because he found that metallic instruments get eroded in use and do not give precision. He sent Father Manual to Europe for collecting observation table prepared 30 years before for comparison. These observatories which were viewed by Jagannath Pandit as light‐house of knowledge are also illustrations of ancient Indo‐Arabic‐cooperation. We can still draw some inspiration from them. He also got translated Ptolemyās work Syntaxes called Almagest in Arabic into Sanskrit as Samrat Siddhanta. Sawai Jai Singh had also a good collection of instruments like Atro‐Labs from Samarkand because these instruments were being prepared in Arab countries with good precision in 17 th century. Sawai Raja Singhās work and attitude is of immense value because his period was of political instability yet he showed high

209

wisdom in strengthening Hindu Muslim relations through calenderic Astronomy and also Indo‐Arabic relations.

B efore this is concluded we draw attention to recent research done by Prof.C.K.Raju of Nehru Museum who played a leading role in the C‐DAC team which built Param our supercomputer. In his research, 8 he has established that in the field of European

Gregorian calendar reform and in streamlining European navigation system Indo‐ Arabic techniques and rules of Laghu Bhaskariya a text on Indian astronomy authored by Bhaskar I (550‐630AD) had played a decisive role. The object of this paper is to remind that historical and scientific relations are part of a larger social spectrum which act like a bridge often abandoned; but visiting the past through such conferences can reaffirm our faith to evolve new patterns of relationships for making the planet called earth‐ more better.

During that time Spain was under Islamic rule and that is why several Latin translations of Arabic works were found at first in Spain.

The Truth about

Gems

By Alok Jagawat, India

A strology and gems are associated with each other from time immemorial. Astrologers often

recommend gems and associate them to planets. While the association is clear in so

many classics, the wearing of gems for particular planet is not mentioned in easily available classics. Vrihadjataka, Vrhat Shamita, Yukti Kalpataru, Rajvallabha, Shushrut Shamita, Garud Purana refers to use of gems in certain conditions and they associate gems to powerful magical properties.

þDharnat tachh papalaxmi Vinashnamÿ (Rajvallabha) þPavitra Dharnayach Paya Laxmimalapahaÿ (Shushrut Shamita) þTe te Yathapurvamatiprashasta Saubhagyasampatividhandayakaÿ (Yukti Kalpataru)

Please note that 'Gems' refers to 'Ratna' and every stone is not a gemstone. Classics define "Ratna" according to following basis:

or inauspicious Muhurta have ill affects despite being good in luster and appearance. As we know most of gems do not fulfill these criteria.

Again, most of gems do not fulfill these criteria. This is because as a Gemologist and gem buyer, we know that they are mined at commercial level and not on the basis of any auspicious Muhurta (auspicious time).Same thing is mentioned in Chapter 68 of Garudpuranam. This author begs the forgiveness of scholars as he has a translated version of Garudapurana wherein Shloka numbers are not mentioned.

2. Gems should be free of inclusions, spots, internal cracks and should carry proper color.

(90% of the gems sold by astrologers do not fit this description). In þRatnaparikshadhyayÿ of Vraht Shamita, it is clearly mentioned:

þ YSJS 8MZGMJS 8MZGM M YN WN S SN MYM MZGMJS, > Y M 5 WNP M J YS MWNY 9 Jÿ

Good, clean gems of top quality bring good luck to emperors and those which are of bad quality bring bad luck. Hence, an astrologer should first check the gem

for quality and only then he should provide it to others. Gems are carriers of ĀFateā.

Gems will come to you if you own a powerful horoscope and trust me definitions.

they
will
fit above

3. Gems are worn after certain propitiation and rituals like removal of negative influences

through proper mantras.

Point 3 is my own view. I believe that only ĀRatnasā defined in classics should carry þSwapranavasthaÿ (Self invoked state) and rest of the gemstones are just stones. To energize them one needs proper mantras to invoke their powers, which are in dormant condition. This is the same as Idols of Deities need the ritual of þPranpratishtithÿ (Infusion of Life Force) before they are worshipped. But, Shalagrams and Dakshinavarti Shankas have their own powers and they are never invoked through Mantras.

4. A gem which is powerful and fulfills above criteria gets devoid of its power when the

inheritor is an impure person. Please refer to the epic related to Syamantak Mani (gem) during the period of Krishna. Prasena was the brother of Satrajita. Once, Satrajita took up his abode in the seacoast for the purpose of spending his time in worshipping Sun. After he prayed long and intently, Surya dev appeared before him. On being accosted, the divine Sun took out the gem Syamantaka from his neck and laid it out. Sun gave this Priceless jewel to Satrajita. It is said that on wearing the gem he appeared refulgent like Sun and entered Dwarka. Satrajita later transferred it to his brother Prasena. When owned by a pure man Syamantak would produce gold, but to an impure person it indubitably proved fatal. Prasena decked this gem and rode hunting into the forest. He killed innocent animals on account of which the gem altered his destiny. His impure heart brought his untimely fatal death when a lion slew both the horse and the horseman.

When we look at above criteria, it is very clear and evident that an average man, who is bound by restrictions of average income cannot possess above kind of "Ratnas". Gems will come to you if you own a powerful horoscope and trust me they will fit above definitions. Considering the authenticity of wearing gems, certain classics do not mention them as remedies. Rather, they are mentioned as powerful Talismans related to certain planets.

Remedies include Mantra, Tantra and Yantra for propitiation of planets. It is a fact that your destiny can never be altered. Nothing can entirely mitigate your destiny. But you can lower the intensity of mishaps in your life if you can read what planets signify. A wise astrologer can tell you about some prayer, a stone or a Āyantraā that will help you bear the fruits of your deeds. Your soul may never escape the clutches of your Ākarmasā but with remedies or Parihar you will get strengthened enough to bear that.

In olden times gems were not available easily. One cannot acquire them because of the low grade methods of mining. Now with the advance facilities of mining and lapidary, gems are within the reach of certain class of people. Still they may or may not fulfill particular criteria and may not affect people as been mentioned in classics.

For example in the þRatnaparikshadyayaÿ Shloka 14, Varahmihira defines the qualities of a blessed diamond:

þSarvadravyaBhedya laghvambhasi tarati rashmivat Snighdham, Tadidanlashaktrachapopamam cha Vajram Hitayoktamÿ

A diamond which cannot be cut through any device (This means that a diamond should be hard), which appears heavier while held in hand, appears light when seen.þ9 W YN M N Yÿ means which appears as if it is not touching the bottom when kept in water and then it should radiate light, and should shine with sparks and appears like fire and rainbow colors, then it is considered the best of all. Now match this criterion with presently available diamonds in stores, you will hardly find any diamond which will match this description. The effects defined in classics may stand true but gemstones should match their definitions for the same.

I have stressed this idea in many of my write ups, that it is not so easy to change your destiny. Gems can off course change your destiny, but again that can only take place after supernormal intervention.

213

I can narrate an incident which is related to my life only. A person from Iceland came to visit me for astrological consultation. He became a good friend of mine and asked me to explain certain mantras and their processes. He was devoted to lord Shiva and so, while he was leaving the country, I gifted him a beautiful Crystal Shivlingam. He was so happy with the above gesture that he gave me a blue sapphire piece just as a token of appreciation. This sapphire was deep blue in color and fulfilled every criteria mentioned in the Shastras. Moreover it had a blue sheen like a peacock's blue shine on its long neck. I got it embedded in Gold and performed the rituals mention in the classics. I wore it and the experience I got, is unparalleled. Unlike whatever is been mentioned in classics, I had a totally different experience. I constantly felt a cold sensation near my solar plexus and my back. This sensation moved towards my head and my head remained cold most of time. I felt as if somebody had kept ice on my head. I also felt that a golden hew surrounded everybody I used to talk to. As if this was not enough, there were times when I felt that I am not inside my body. It may sound weird but this is exactly what was felt. Later on, I understood the astrological combination, which resulted into this kind of experience.

I was born on 3rd March 1977 at 14:34:40 Hours at Neemuch, (MP)

born on 3rd March 1977 at 14:34:40 Hours at Neemuch, (MP) Saturn is a benefic over

Saturn is a benefic over here as it is the lord of the ninth house and placed in the Nakshatra of ascendant lord. Mars aspects it as exalted planet. Moon +Saturn often cause þPravjayaÿ like situation when it is aspected by Mars. Saturn and Moon both occupy the Dhanur Navmansha which is Jupiterās sign. Saturn occupied Meena in Vimshamsha and hence it created that state of liberation.

Please note that gems have particular powers and when God needs you to be out of troubles, he can definitely show you his powers.

Remedies affect a person only in certain cases when the mantra is properly invoked and then denailed. Most of the sadhus initiate people with wrong mantras. The utkeelan process of a mantra could only be achieved through a proper Guru who understands and lives with a mantra. Mantras were nailed by lord Shiva when demons started using them for gaining power and affluence. Their pronunciation was altered (Keelit) so that nobody can use them without proper knowledge and path. Every mantra has its own nail and bears an Utkeelan as

214

well. The methods of Utkeelan are only shared through Guru Shishya Parampara and every mantra carries its own process. One is considered fortunate if he/she can obtain the utkeelan bejaas for their respective mantra. Please note that a prayer is like þAvahanÿ of a deity. Your mantras act as þBhogÿ for Deities. However, mantras without proper utkeelan do not reach out for Devatas. They act as þBhogÿ for negative souls. Hence, one should be very careful with mantras. Keelit mantras can bring mental illusion for its bearer and follower. Same is the case with Yantras. Yantras have supernormal powers once they are charged. But they lose their power when the "Karta" or the owner becomes impure. The devatas (gods) which reside in a yantra leave it when impurity enters a "Sadhaks" mind.

Gems have the same criteria. They need to be washed with proper herbs and the person wearing it needs to maintain a high level of purity. It is better to wear them around neck then in fingers. Every gem should be purified before wearing. The purification can be performed by keeping gems in their respective herbs for a period of twenty four hours. Gems associated with planets that are malefic in a horoscope, should never be worn. Donations of gems are indicated in Shastras as remedies. One who cannot procure high quality gems can donate their substitutes as remedies. Gems could be worn and be effective to a person if they fulfill the above mentioned criteria. Gems are often attracted towards people who have very strong Venus and who are undergoing a Venus major period. One can collect gems during such periods.

Gems, which are not mined and are formed in animals, shells and other organisms, are called devmanis and they bear supernormal powers. These manis and muktas are mentioned in Chapter 69 of Garudpuranam and þMukta Laxnadhyayaÿ of Vrhat Shanita. They are very rare and cannot be obtained without luck. Please note that gemstones have nothing to do with money. Even if you are Richie Rich, you will not be able to procure a proper gem. There is a very simple reason behind it.

Apart from being a simple & humble human being he has authored & also translated some rare works which includes Siddhanta Shiromani, KetkiGrahan Ganitam, Brihad Bhartiya Kundali Vigyan, Saral TrikonaGanitam, Aryabhatiya, Dridhavrath Lakshanam. He is expected to contribute some interesting articles in time to come.

Basic Rules

Of Predictions

Clarified

‘Laghu Parashari’-1

By Pt. Satyadev Sharma, India.

F undamental

Rules for

predictions are given from stanza ‐6 of our classic text called ĀLAGHUPARASHARIā, the

most popular book on predictive astrology. In this space, we take some stanzas, which are extremely important for predictions and understand the intricacies of it which this author feels has not been deeply understood so far.

Now we take stanzas one by one and unravel the obscure meanings of them.

Stanza‐6:‐

सविकोनेतारो हाः शभफ़लदा।ु

पतयिषडायानांयिद पापफ़लदा॥६॥

In this stanza, 2 different rules have been mentioned one in the first line and second in the second line. In the first line it is narrated that all the planets whether benefics or malefics by nature give beneficial result if any of them is the ruler of TRIKON Houses i.e. lord of 5 th or 9 th or 1 st . The Ascendant is counted both as KENDRA AND TRIKON house.

216

Here the second sign of that planet may be anywhere that is not to be considered for this rule.

In the second line it is narrated that if any of the natural benefics or malefic s are the lords of the 3 rd (TRI), 6 TH (SHAD), 11th (AAYA) houses, they give malefic results. This is separate & a different rules than the first line above. In any horoscope following is the position of lords of 3.6.11, houses.

3rd Lord

Can Be

Lord of 4th, 10th, 6th, 8th, or 12th house also

6th Lord

Can Be

Lord of 3rd, 7th, 11th, 1st, 5th or 9th house, also

11th Lord

Can Be

Lord of 4th, 10th, 6th, 8th or 12th house also

From the above table we can see that 3 rd & 11 th house lords can never become lords of 1 st 5 th 9 th houses and thus can never become benefic as per the rule 1st given above. Because only those planets can become benefics which are the lords of 1 st , 5th or 9 th houses. Thus for the lords of

3

TRIK (6, 8 & 12) houses then they will definitely give malefic results but if they are the lords of 4 th or 10 th house then as these houses are not malefic houses they will not give malefic results but not great benefic results also. It will also depend much on whether the lord of 3 rd or 11 th house is natural benefic or malefic planet.

Now, the lord of sixth house as per above table can be the lord of 3,7,11, houses which are not benefic houses or Lagna (1 st ) or TRIKON (5 th or 9 th) . If the lord of any of 1 st ,5 th or 9 th house then as per the 1 st line of the stanza ‐6 it will give beneficial results irrespective of it being lords of sixth house, which is a TRIK house. 9MJWJKTWJ, \J JJ YM Y YMJ JHTS WZQJ N S J]HJ YNTS \MJS NY HT J YT GJNS YMJ QTW TK YMJ N]YM MTZ J.

In all Indian Astrological texts Ascendant (lagna) house been said to be always benefic.

house) is

Here also, in stanza‐9 second line it has been said that if the lord of RANDRA (8 also the lord of Ascendant (lagna) then also it has benefic qualities to it.

Stanza 7:‐

& 11 th houses we can say that þthey can never give benefic resultsÿ .If they are lords of

rd

th

न िदशि शभुं नणृ ांसौाः केािधपा यिद।

ूराचदेशभुंते ेबलाचोरोरम ॥७॥ ्

This stanza states that if any natural benefic planet is the lord of any kendra (4, 7, 10) house, then by simply becoming the lord of Kendra (benefic houses) it cannot give benefic results. In the same manner Kroor (natural malefic) planet does not give benefic result (or malefic result). All the benefic or malefic properties acquired by the planets as said (above) get stronger in the sequential order of the houses i.e. 4,7,10 houses means 7 th is stronger than 4, 10 th is stronger than 7 th house. Here a very important thing more has been said in the first line of the stanza 10, that the demerit acquired on becoming lord of Kendras & hindrance in giving benefic results is most to Jupiter and less than that is to Venus.

The above rule does not mean that benefics on being lords of kendras give malefic results and the malefics give benefic results. The rule only says that simply on becoming lord of

217

Kendra any benefic planet cannot be taken for granted to give benefic results similarly the malefic planet also.

Lord of the 4 th or 10 th house can also become lord of 3, 7,11,1, 5 or 9 th house only.

Lord of 7 th house can also become lord of 4, 10, 6, 8,12th house only.

Lagna lord is always beneficial.

From the above it can be inferred that if any or 10 th house & also he is lord of 3 rd 7 th or 11 th malefic results and if he is lord of 1 st ,5 th

In another case if any natural benefic or of 7 th house which is MARAK i.e. definitely it will be malefic. Regarding KENDRADHIPATI DOSHA it is clear benefic planets are Jupiter & second Venus,

Thus, the rules given in the stanza ‐8 & part of 10 are clear now. KENDRAS have not been vested with the power to make its lord benefic, although KENDRAS are powerful houses as per astrological principles.

Stanza 8:‐

लाद् यितीयशे ौ परषाे ंसाहचयत ।

ानारानगुुयने भवतः फ़लदायकौ॥८॥

This stanza narrates that lords of 2 nd and 12th house from the Ascendants is a benefic or malefic depending on where its other sign is deposited in the chart. According as is its property being lord of its second sign deposited house or its association with the lord of another (malefic or benefic) house. Here we see that the lord of second house or 12 th house can also lord of only 3, 7, 11, 1, 5 0r 9 th house. Thus here also if any planet is lord of 2 nd or 12 th house and also he is lord of 3, 7,or 11 th house then be cannot be a benefic. In another case if any lord of 2 nd or 12 th house is also the lord of 1, 5, 9th house then he is definitely a benefic as per stanza ‐6 Rule 1. Thus, the rule

narrated is justified. Extra property of acquiring benefic or malefic as association of its other lords is narrated here, which will be clear on further explanation of these rules.

Stanza 9:‐

भाययािधपने रशे ो न शभुदः।

This stanza states that the eighth house being the loss (Vyaya) house in the horoscope, it is not a benefic house and thus it Lords is not benefic. The second part of the starnra has been explaned above with the explanation of stanza ‐7 here. This eighth house is named as TRIK house along with 6 th &12 th .There are said to be the most malefic houses & their lords also have been designated likewise. Here in these stanzas we are studying the characteristics of only the lords of different types of houses.

Stanza 10:‐

केािधपदोषुबलवाुशु योः।

मारकऽेिप च तयोमारक ानसिंितः॥१०॥

First part of the stanza has been explained above with the explanation of stanza 7. Second line of the stanza narrates that in case Jupiter or Venus are situated in MARAK houses i.e. 2 nd 7 th then they become or acquire MARAK Characteristics & thus become MARAK Planets. Here also this demerit of Jupiter being more harmful than that of Venus.

This is because as they are the most benefic natural planets and give most benefic results, if they become or acquire characteristics of malefic then it will be in respective degree to their power & thus more property of MARKATVA respectively.

Stanza 11:‐

ुचोऽिप ुतिधः।

In the sequence of benefics the third planet is MERURY which acquires benefic or malefic property according to the association of such planets. At the last comes Moon, which is malefic for half month atleast. Thus as per the degree or intensity of beneficence the degree of malfeasance is acquired. The malefic characteristics acquired by other planets on becoming lord of RANDHRA (eighth house) is not acquired by Sun & Moon, both have been exempted from this malefic characteristic.

If we take circle, it represents 0 ü 360 degrees. So by comparing Horoscope with a circle each house will be of 30 degrees.

In this method it is considered that 1 Degree = 1 day. Therefore 360 degree = 360 days, which is equal to 1 year.

But in actual calculations 1 year = 365 days and 5 hours

Now we know that from each house we can predict about following things.

1 st

2 nd

house ü health, body, nature etc. house ü family, speech and right eye etc.

3 rd house ü brothers and sisters, right hand, neighbors etc.

4 th house ü mother, heart, lungs, fixed assets etc.

5 th house ü grand father, education, 1 st child, etc.

8 th house ü insurance, accident, illness etc. 9 th house ü father, own house, 3 rd child, long journey etc. 10 th house ü service, entrepreneurship, boss etc.

11 th house ü friends, brothers and sisters and gain etc. 12 th house ü hospital, place for sleeping, jail, bondage and expenditure etc.

Let us have prediction of 1 st house from Lagna (Ascendant)

In ascendant of Aries, suppose lord of the 1 st house Mars is in the 12 th house, Prediction will be as under for the child from birth date to the end of the 1 st year ü may have following troubles.

As we have seen that 12 th house represents the hospital, left eye, expenditure, foreign countries or long journey. So

1. Child may have long journey

2. He may travel to foreign countries or states.

3. He may be hospitalized due to health troubles or left eye problem.

4. And all above, he will incur some expenditure.

5. As above things happen the place for sleeping is also changed relatively.

6. As in the 12 th house there is Pisces Sign, so he may have injury in heel of leg by sharp iron things or broken glass. Thus, he may be hospitalized due to it.

7. Cough and cold problem also observed during 1 st year

All above predictions are based on Lagna Chart onlyõ

Now let us have prediction of 1 st house from Lagna Chart and Dwadasamsa Chart both combined ü Which is known as PADMA CHAKRA METHOD.

Suppose the Mars is in Taurus Sign in Dwadasamsa Chart. We mark this in Lagna Chart as follows.

Mars (2) 2 12 1 3 11 4 10 5 7 9 6 8
Mars (2)

From this, we can say that working of

Mars is in the 2 nd house also.

Now 2 nd house as we have seen represents Family, Money, and Right Eye etc. So the prediction will be

222

1. Child may get money from his/her own family or family earns more money due to the working horoscope of child.

2. He may get money from foreign countries or states or relatives, who belong to foreign countries or states.

3. He may travel long journeys to foreign and incurs expenses.

4. Any member of family may have to be hospitalized and incurs expenses.

5. Any member of the family may go to foreign country and incurs expenses

6. Or any member of family may get money from foreign relatives.

Thus by the use of Padma Chakra (Dwadasamsa) Method we can predict more deeply and precisely with extensive details (like we have predicted about childās family).

This method will be discussed further by using the actual horoscope of the individuals in the next article.

The Amazing

‘CSP Arc’ &

Politicians

By R. G. Krishnan, USA

Introduction:

T his issue of Saptarishis Astrology Magazine being the memorial issue in honor of my Guru late

Mr.C.S.Patel, I chose to write this article on a subject which was dear to him while he was alive, which I think will serve as the best homage to his memory & to his pioneering work on Nadi astrology.

Way back in the year 1988, I used to meet Mr.C.S.Patel on every weekend, wherein he would discuss the principles enunciated in Chandra Kala Nadi, Dhruva Nadi and many other Nadi literature. In particular he used to emphasize about the results of transit of Rahu & Ketu over the þSun‐ Mercury‐Venus arcÿ in any natal horoscope.

I do not recollect the exact verse quoted by him in this regard which was from some Nadi literature but the essence of that verse was that whenever Rahu transits over the ĀSun‐Mercury‐Venusā arc in any Natal chart some good results accrue to the native like monetary gains, career advancement etc and similarly whenever Ketu transits over this arc some adverse results will accrue to the native like loss of money, loss of position, involvement in
