“Dharma is the foundation of marriage” Sanjay Rath (Feb 2000)

Lecture delivered at the Brahman Sabha, Haryana, 2001.

Bhagavan Sri Krishna teaches that the first signs of the fall in Dharma is the corruption of women: Extract from: Bhagavat Gita-As it is by Srila Prabhupada

अधर्माभिभवात्कृष्ण प्रदुष्यन्ति कुलस्त्रियः।
स्त्रीषु दुष्टासु वार्ष्णेय जायते वर्णसङ्करः॥
adharmābhibhavātkṛṣṇa praduṣyanti kulastriyaḥ |
strīṣu duṣṭāsu vārṣṇeya jāyate varṇasaṅkaraḥ || Bhagavat Gita||

Translation: When irreligion is prominent in the family, O Krisna, the women of the family become polluted, and from the degradation of womanhood, O descendant of Vrisni, comes unwanted progeny. (BG:1.40)

Dharma is examined in the ninth house and the one-ninth division of signs is called Navamsa. Parasara advises us to examine this divisional chart (Navamsa) for spouse as it is the fruit/gains of Dharma. Thus the 11th sign from the 9th house is the 7th house which shows gains/increase of Dharma and the 12th sign from the 9th house in the 8th house which shows loss/decrease of Dharma. Thus, marriage indicates an increase of Dharma while widowhood symbolizes a destruction of Dharma. In these tense in Hindu wedding the son-in-law is regarded as Vishnu as his coming to the family has led to an increase in Dharma.

The Sun is a significator of Dharma and hence Maharishi Jaimini teaches that the Sun can never be a malefic for Upapada (Arudha of 12th house symbolizing the Vivaha Mandapa[1]). Rahu is the greatest enemy of the Sun and causes its eclipse. Thus Rahu symbolizes destruction of Dharma and also widowhood. Saturn is an enemy of the Sun and significator of the 8th house (ruling widowhood/break in marriage) whereas Jupiter is a friend of the Sun and saves marriages by giving children. In fact Chanakya[2] Niti[3] teaches that a person who is not desirous of having children should not marry. Venus (ruling semen) shows sexuality and physical beauty whereas Mars shows the destruction of semen /preservation and indicates Brahmacharya[4] thus Mars causes the first error (dosha) on the significator of natural procreation. Ketu is always opposite to Rahu and both Parasara and Jaimini teach that it causes marriage. In fact it indicates the bestiality in man which is controlled by worshipping Lord Shiva as Pasupati[5]. The Moon is a significator of mother hood and will surely give marriage whereas Mercury the bastard son of the Moon indicates Adharma or children etc. born outside marriage and thus, obstructs or break the purity of marriage relationship. Thus, Jaimini teaches that if Moon & Mercury are in mutual trines in the Navamsa the character may fall and marriage vows maybe broken while if Mercury is aspected by Jupiter (the pure representative of Vishnu) then purity prevails and marriage vows will be kept.

Scorpio is the natural eighth house of the zodiac and if Mercury & Venus are in Scorpio Navamsa then the person is of very loose morals. In this manner the various rules/dictums given in the classical literature can be understood.

Illustrations

(Some Birth details are with held for obvious reasons)

Chart1: Female born on 31st January 1951.

Chart 1 is the Navamsa of a Lady born in a Brahmin family. The sixth Lord Mars is in the ninth house aspected by Rahu. Rahu also eclipse the Sun and Moon in Lagna. Thus fall in Dharma is to occur. Ketu, signifying sexuality is in the seventh house as the 7th Lord Jupiter and seventh house are both afflicted by Saturn (a dire malefic signifying and ruling the 8th house). Both Venus and Mercury are in Scorpio (specific combination for Low morals). The second house from Navamsa Lagna in Cancer aspected by Mars & Venus by Rasi drishti. Thus all planets point at one thing–fall of Dharma and excessive uncontrolled sexuality. This Lady has lost all morals and has had all sorts of men in her life.

Chart 2 : Female born on 30th May 1954 at 7:40’ PM at Delhi, India.

In Chart 2 The Lagna is subject to Papakartari Yoga between Rahu, Mars and Saturn indicating a life of some kind of bondage. The ninth Lord Moon is all placed in the sixth house showing a fall in Dharma. Venus in the 8th house is also very evil for marriage. In the Navamsa Saturn is in Capricorn Navamsa aspected by Ketu (Rasi Drishti) indicating either adultery or Tapaswi (Sanyasi) depending on whether Jupiter is strong. Jupiter is afflicted by Rahu’s aspect both in Rasi and Navamsa and is placed in a Dusthana (8th & 12th) in both Rasi & Navamsa. Thus Jupiter is afflicted. In the Navamsa it is under Papakartari Yoga between Saturn & Rahu. In female horoscopy Jupiter is the significator of husband and unless this is strong, married life will not be present or not happy.

Venus is in the second house aspected by Mars from the eighth showing ability (or talent!) for all kinds of sex. Both debilitated Moon and Mercury are in Scorpio indicating excessive illegal sexuality and conjoined with Rahu shows the extensive nature of these activities. Her life is a sad story of exploitation and rape finally leading to the infamous profession of prostitution.

VEDIC REMEDY

There are various remedial measures given for solving marriage problems like delay in marriage, divorce etc. Some of them are very tamasic like black magic and others give temporary results. When it is clearly established that Dharma alone protect the purity/marriage then the highest and surest remedy lies in increasing Dharma. Bhagwan Vishnu sits in the ninth house of Dharma and worshipping him with the Astakshari mantra “OM NAMO NARAYANAYA” or meditating with the mantra “ OM TAT SAT” is the best remedy. In addition, a gemstone of the Lord of ninth house (in Rasi Chart) and fasting on days ruled by the Lord of Upapada can be prescribed.

OM TAT SAT

[1] Vivaha means marriage and mandapa means the place where this is solemnized through Vedic rituals.

[2] Kautilya better known as Chanakya was the able administrator and Minister of Chandragupta Maurya. His work on administration named “Artha Shastra” is the greatest of of kind.

[3] Niti means code of conduct or behavior.

[4] celibacy

[5] Pasu: Animal; Pati: Lord; Thus pasupati means Lord of all animals including man.
