    Article: Mula dasa – Varahamihira’s success
    This dasa was yet another secret of the tradition of Orissa that has been exposed for the first time to the world at large. This dasa finds mention in the monumental classic ‘Saravali’ by Kalyanavarma and in Varahamihira’s work. While other works spell out the results of Mula dasa, they do not show how to calculate it.

  • The Process

  • ISIS Caliphate

    From the ISIS Lagna chart (previous article), it was obvious that they are trying to establish a kingdom as the lagneśa Mercury is in 9th bhāva (independent) and is also a ātmakāraka (king). Since the ārūḍha is in Libra with Rāhu and Saturn, the manifestation of this ārūḍha shall take place during their period – Saturn daśā Rāhu antardaśā (Apr, 2013 – Mar, 2016). After their initial huge victories, the formation of a Caliphate was declared. […]

  • ISIS Lagna

    The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), better known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is a Salafi jihadist militant group that follows an Islamic fundamentalist, Wahhabi doctrine of Sunni Islam.

    I take this opportunity to thank Sanjay Prabhakaran, my ardent student for retrieving this old article so that t maybe available for the benefit of all astrologers. SanjayP is the SJC Jyotish Guru for Chennai

  • Bondage Freedom

    Ketu as the mokṣa-karaka is the giver of emancipation of every kind. Most astrologers only look at the spiritual aspect of freedom from rebirth, which truly is the penultimate goal. But there are many types of bondages and one seeks freedom from these or protection from it. Something like jail term for something wrong done or being trapped when you are not the one who committed the crime.

    Either way, you need Gaṇeśa as the devatā of ‘Ketu’ for this freedom activation. […]

  • Age of Śaktī

    Moon represents Ambikā who manifests as Durgā and all the śaktī of the various devatā. She is the bindu which gives life to every akṣara. If the akṣara represent the deva having the power to enlighten, their very existence and identity depends on the soma-rasa (milk of kindness) they receive from the Moon-mother. The bindu, by nature is simply red, like the blood. And like the blood of the mother, it creates every creature and gods as well. […]

  • Multiple Hanuman Jayanti

    In Sanskrit he is more appropriately called हनुमत् (hanumat) which means “one having mighty jaws” indicating the power to bite and hold on to the task – a symbol of determination. He is vānara (monkey) and one of the most celebrated of a host of divine ape-like beings, created by the blessings of Nārada, to become the allies of Śrī Rāma in his war with Rāvaṇa.

  • Eclipse Factor

    Annular Solar Eclipse of May 31, 2003
    Although the Sun is 400 times larger than the Moon, yet it is also about 400 times as far from the Earth than the Moon. This situation causes the two luminaries (Sun and Moon) to appear as about the same size in the sky. When the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, it casts a shadow. If this shadow falls on the earth, it causes an eclipse. The Moon passes between the Sun and Earth every month, yet it does not cause an eclipse to occur every month. […]

  • Pañca Sakhā

    The five Mahāpuruṣa of Orissa are the initiators of the lineages. Our lineage of Vedic astrology comes from the holy feet of Sri Achyutananda.

  • Super-Star Rajesh Khanna

    In an era long before this internet age, Rajesh Khanna was the man who sparked a frenzy never seen before and never since, not even by the likes of Amitabh Bachchan.

Unlike all other politicians who have followed the old British system of swearing-in at the Governor or President house (Rastrapati Bhavan), Kejriwal has, time and again, followed the American system of public oath-taking ceremony.

  • Ukraine UN-Peace Deal

    The BBC reported that marathon peace negotiations have resulted in a new ceasefire deal for eastern Ukraine in the Belarusian capital Minsk. The 16-hour talks went on through the night, between Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. We all know that a previous Minsk ceasefire deal collapsed within days of its signing on 5 Sep 2014 and there was heavy fighting just hours before this one as if telling the negotiators that “the ink in which this deal needs to be signed is human blood”.
