Not attending BAVA 2011

This is to inform one and all that I am not able to attend the BAVA 2011 conference due to refusal of my VISA application. Like every other year I have applied for VISA and blindly attach the letter I get from BAVA. This year, somehow there was a line that has created the problem. The reason for refusal has been clearly stated in the document and we also do not have appeal.

I believe we also cannot reapply till the mandatory processing period of 3 months. Am I wrong? Please enlighten me if this is period is less.

Dreams: Lord Kṛṣṇa Teachings

 Extracts from Brahmavaivarta Purāṇa
Auspicious dreams
Nanda asked :

1.          Tell me, O Lord, which sort of dreams gives happiness and merit to the seer and produces good results.

Śrī Kṛṣṇa replied :

2-3.       My father! The Sāmaveda is regarded an authority in all matters.

Drekkana reckoning and Rishis

Yashoda annd Swati’s question wrote:
Hare Rama Krsna, I was listening to Atri classes on Jagannatha drekkana , where Sanjayji talks about Agasthya is related to Bhramarishi ( chara rashis, 9th from sthir rashis Moon ), Doorvaasa is related to Maharishi (sthira rashis, 9th from dwija rashis Moon), Narada is connected to devarishi (dwija rashis, 9th from chara rashis Moon)
In contrast to this, in the narayana dasha book, it is given other way round, as Agasthya related to Maharishi (sthira rashis) and Doorvaasa is related to Bhramarishi (chara rashis).

Vedic Calendar

There is a need to review the calendar system used in Vedic astrology and to set the standards for the right calendar to be followed in this regard. There have been various calendar reform committees set up in various forum, yet there has not been any consensus as deep inside they realize that some vital point is being missed out. The calendar being followed by the Indian Government, is widely off the mark as it just blindly superimposes a lunar calendar on a solar calendar! Without trying to harmonise them as had been originally done by the Vedic Seers.
