Tapasvi Raja

Lal Kishan Advani

The horoscope of Shri L K Advani has been slightly controversial due to the fact of his date of birth being declared as 8 November 1929 instead of 8 November 1927. These and a few other charts were considered and it was found that the date of 8 November 1927 seems to be most accurate as the predictions also proved to be true (See Previous publication of October 1998). The horoscope can be seen (Rasi Chart, Navamsa Chart & Dasamsa Chart). We have taken the liberty to call this leader a ‘tapasvi’ because none can match his strength to strive towards his goals. It is important to have the goals clear and then he can really go for it.

Childhood & Partition of India

Shri. L.K. Advani was born on November 08, 1927 in Karachi (now Pakistan). He had to leave Pakistan at the time of partition of India in 1947 and this fact can easily be seen in the placement of two malefic planets in the Lagna which represents childhood and hometown. Saturn as the fourth Lord is not malefic and in fact, does become slightly better due to the ownership of a Kendra. But Ketu is very malefic in conjunction with Saturn and will cause the destruction (Ketu) of properties (conjoins 4th Lord) due to strife or terrorism (Ketu rules terrorists). This can be very accurately timed with the Narayana dasa as his was from Scorpio Dasa to Aquarius Dasa in 1946. With the advent of Pisces Narayana Dasa in November 1946, his coming to India was sure to happen. At the time of partition of India into Pakistan and India in 1947, Shri Advani was the RSS organizer in Karachi City. Leadership position was given by the placement of Jupiter in the most beneficial Pisces (own sign) and with the Ghatika Lagna (GL in Pisces). this combination of Saturn and Mokshkaraka Ketu gives Tapaswi Yoga and the man shall undertake severe penance i.e. he is not easily defeated and can struggle very hard due to the blessings of the Mritunjaya mantra. Had Venus also been in trines to Lagna he may have renounced the world to become a Sadhu.

Education & the Man

His earlier schooling was at St.Patrick’s in Karachi. The Narayana Dasa of Pisces with Brihaspati in it started in his 20th year and continued till his 32nd year. Thus Jupiter played a very crucial role in his formative years and true to its nature gave him knowledge of law. He graduated in Law from Bombay University. Though not a practicing lawyer like Vachaspati (Brihaspati as the spokesperson), he argued on behalf of his party in 1974 before the Supreme Court in the Presidential reference whether election to the post of President could be held when the Gujarat Assembly was dissolved. The position of Navamsa Lagna in Sagittarius does give a fiery, straightforward and dynamic personality who will not hesitate to call a spade a spade and who will stand up for Dharma without flinching, especially when both the luminaries Sun & Moon are in exaltation in the Dharma Amsa (Navamsa). Known for his sophistication and culture, Advaniji is given to a modest life style. Recently when an interviewer asked what is his most precious possession, Shri. Advani replied, ” My collection of books.” This  love for books (and music which is yet to be confirmed) is seen from the placement of the Sun in the fifth house in the Navamsa Chart. Such people are Gitagya (as per Jaimini Sutra they will always strive to know the real truth of the Veda and will be Vedantist. Further the Bhagavat Gita is considered the last word of the Veda and hence Vedanta).

After partition, for several years Shri. Advani organized RSS work in Rajasthan. When Dr. Mukherji founded Jana Sangh in 1951, Shri. Advani became its Rajasthan State Secretary and continued there till 1957 before he moved to Delhi to become the Delhi Jana Sangh Secretary and during this period he was also the Secretary to the Jana Sangh Parliamentary Group. Thus his stay in Rajasthan coincided with the period of Pisces Dasa and just before the start of Aries Dasa he came to Delhi. The six pears of Aries Dasa from 1958 to 1964 was to prove to be a period of penance (Sat & Ketu aspect) and will surely give success in career and fame due to the placement of the Moon in the Dasa Rasi.

In Parliament & Information Minister

Timing of Rajyoga should be done from the Ghatika Lagna (Power Position) and planets / Signs aspecting this. The Ghatika Lagna is in Pisces and is very strong with the conjunction of Jupiter its Lord. It is aspected by Venus in debility and placed in the Arudha Lagna (Virgo representing India). Thus if we were to use Vimsottari Dasa, then we can say that he will enjoy Rajyoga of a high order during Jupiter dasa and during Venus antardasa (August 2000 to April 2003), he could become the Prime Minister of India.

Let us verify the past power positions from the Narayana dasa. From 1970 to 1989 he was a Member of the Rajya Sabha. This started during the Gemini Dasa as Gemini aspects the Rajya Pada (A10) in Sagittarius as well as the Ghatika Lagna in Pisces. He was elected President of Jana Sangh in 1973 and continued until 1977. Thereafter he was appointed Information & Broadcasting Minister in the Janata government. This was during the Leo Dasa and the Sun causing Neechabhanga Rajyoga elevated him to the position of a Minister. The Sun is the 10th Lord and although placed in debility in the Rasi chart is exalted in the Navamsa Chart causing Neechabhanga Rajyoga. Such people will rise in leaps and bounds and even if in a very low position will ultimately rise to high power. During his tenure he freed the media from legislative and executive shackles, institutionalized reforms and inbuilt safeguards to guard freedom. He abolished Press Censorship and repealed anti-press legislation.  Democratic views and policies are seen from the strong influence of Jupiter on the fifth house as Jupiter indicates freedom, rule of Law etc. Saturn in Lagna is also an indicator of people’s power. At the beginning of Virgo dasa, the results of debilitated Venus were obtained and the BJP was a very weak party in parliament in 1984. However, Virgo aspects the Ghatika Lagna and Brihaspati. Virgo dasa is for 11 years and the first one-third period of 3 years (1983-86) would be of Virgo, the second 4 years (1986-90) of Venus and the last 4 years (1990-94) of Jupiter the aspecting planet. The BJP was launched in 1980 and for the next six years he held the post of General Secretary. In 1986, he became the All India President, which post he held until January 1991. Look at the accurate method of timing. In 1989 and again in 1991 he was elected to Lok Sabha. In 1991, he was also appointed the Leader of Opposition. This was the blessing of the fifth house Jupiter in the Ghatika Lagna.

Neechabhanga Rajyoga

With the advent of the Narayana Dasa of Libra in 1994, the chart was sure to rise as Libra conjoins the Lagna Lord Mars and tenth Lord Sun forming a combination for power and authority. Mercury although the malefic 8th Lord is also the Lord of Arudha Lagna. Venus the Lord of Libra aspects the Ghatika Lagna. Thus the table was set for a Neechabhanga Rajyoga as the Sun although debilitated in Rasi is placed in exalted Navamsa. The Moon in the seventh house also ensures popularity and success and is also exalted in the Navamsa. Blessed is the nation to have such a leader…a TAPASWI RAJA like Raja Janaka (the father of Sita). Again, divide the 10 year dasa of Libra into three parts as Libra (1994-97), Venus (1997-2001) and Sun, Mars&Merc (2001-2004). Between 1994-97 the results of the 12th house Libra was obtained and although the BJP rose in power, this was obtained with great difficulty. The present period of Venus (1997-2001) is most auspicious as Venus is in Arudha Lagna and aspects the Ghatika Lagna to promise power and position. However the best is yet to come and this will be from 2001-2004 when the Neechabhanga Rajyoga of the Sun along with the fire power of Mars shall catapult him to the apex position in Indian politics. It may also be noted that the Rajyoga of Libra is till 2004.

The Press on Shri. Advaniji

Shri. Swapan Dasgupta of Times of India commented “Not only did Advani release a flood of sublimated nationalist energy,……….it is the BJP that is putting itself forward as the natural inheritor of the stability platform.” The Telegraph writes ” His clarity of vision, precise statements and astute sense of timing played a major role in the BJP’s success.” India Today notes, “…..he is so un-confused that the clarity of his thought and its translation into action have served to un-confuse the BJP and propelled it into a dimension that has run traditional secularists and patriots like the old line socialists, congress Fabians and communists running back to defensive positions.”

Shri L K Advani By Sanjay Rath (October, 1998)

D.O.B: 8th November, 1927; T.O.B: 09:13 AM IST; LAT: 025 N 40’; LONG: 068 E 22

Sri L K Advani, Home Minister of India was born in Scorpio Ascendant & Aries Moon sign . Such a combination is said to be blessed by Sri Chamunda Devi (The Warrior Goddess) and gives him robust health, dynamism and bellicose patriotism. Rahu exalted in the 9th house from Arudha Lagna (Virgo – AL) & 7th from Lagna brought him into the center stage of national politics. However, being a natural malefic it denied power. With the advent of Jupiter Dasa his popularity and power has been rising since Jupiter is the 5th lord ruling power and authority and is placed in the 5th house Pisces. It is also placed in the 7th house from AL thereby demolishing enemies and adding to his might.

In the Navamsa (D -9 chart) Jupiter is exalted but placed in the 8th house, this ensures power and authority, but may indicate some ill health during the period of Moon & Ketu. In the Dasamsa (D-10 chart) Jupiter is the lord of Lagna placed in the 12th house under affliction from Saturn and Rahu indicating renunciation of power. Thus, during Jupiter dasa Saturn antardasa (November 1994 to May 1997) although BJP was the largest party in the Parliament, power had to be renounced by the party due to lack of support (Saturn) and Sri Advani also did not become a member of the Cabinet due to a court case that he won on a later date.

Mercury is very strong in the chart causing Vipareeta Yoga as the 8th lord in 12th house. It also conjoins lagnesh Mars and 10th lord Sun and will give their result of Rajyoga. Being in the 2nd house from Arudha Lagna (AL) and as lord of AL it gives Simhasan Yoga (Throne). It is exceedingly strong, placed in own sign in a quadrant in both Navamsa & Dasamsa. Thus, in Jupiter dasa, Mercury antardasa (May 1997 to August 1999) the BJP came to power and he is the Home Minister of the country. Thus all speculations about a premature end of BJP Government is not accepted, as this Simhasan Yoga will continue till August 1999. The forthcoming period of Ketu antardasa in Jupiter dasa (August 1999 to July 2000) will see the courage, perseverance and daring (Parakrama Bala as Ketu is in 3rd from AL) of Sri Advani. Like a war elephant he will stride across the length and breadth of India. The terrorists of Kashmir will be defeated and peace will be re- established in the mountainous regions of India. As Ketu is in 6th house from Jupiter in Dasamsa the Secret services / Intelligence services of the country will receive a boost / feather in their cap and the service atmosphere / prospectus will become better. Subordinate services will also be upgraded or will have a cadre review. Some talk of instability and enemies plotting will trouble him till 8th January 1999, thereafter till November 1999, with the blessing of Sri Chamunda he will overcome all problems and will gain popularity.
