Justice has its ways and in a case where the world thought that he may not be really guilty, we had actually pronounced him “Guilty of Murder”.
On Dec. 3, 2015, a South African appeals court changed Oscar Pistorius’ manslaughter verdict and found him guilty of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013. Pistorius was under house arrest for the remainder of his five-year manslaughter term but will have to go to court again to be re-sentenced for murder. BBC News Quick Look
August 2012: Merc-Sat-Moon Period
Competes in London Olympics and Paralympics, where he won a gold medal. Saturn is Lagnesha in the 11th house and Mercury is the 9th Lord in a powerful Rajayoga with Venus the 10th Lord in tenth house. Further, Saturn is in dhana bhava from Mercury and activates a yoga for fame success and great rise. Moon adds the flavour for fame being in the 7th house in own sign. He becomes the ‘favoured one’.
February 2013: Merc-Sat-Rahu Period
Shoots dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. What one does during the Rajayoga dasha-antara is seen in the pratyantara. Mercury-Saturn Dasha-Antara is the rajayoga backdrop but Rahu shows ‘power going to the head’. One believes that they can get away with everything. See notes about Rahu-Jupiter parivartana …is this a kind of Guru-Chandala (Murder Yoga) when the 3rd bhava and Mars are also involved? It did turn out to be one.
September 2014: Ketu-Ven-Jup
Judge finds Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide. While Ketu is hell bent on keeping him behind bars, Venus favours him and with the benign aspect of Jupiter does give him a long rope to get away. Under the law of culpable homicide, he becomes eligible for release under “correctional supervision”, after having served a sixth of his sentence. October 2014, he begins five-year sentence and in October 2015, he is transferred to house arrest.
December 2015: Ketu-Moon-Ketu
Appeal court changes verdict to MURDER. The bulldog (Ketu) bites and refuses to let go. Pistorius can challenge the ruling in the constitutional court but only if his lawyers can argue that his constitutional rights have been violated. But there seems to be little chance of this.
a human tragedy of Shakespearean proportions…that having armed himself with a high-calibre weapon, Pistorius must have foreseen that whoever was behind the door might die, especially given his firearms training.As a matter of common sense at the time the fatal shots were fired, the possibility of the death of the person behind the door was clearly an obvious result, and in firing not one but four shots, such a result became even more likely.
I am not any BJP member or supporter as in principle I am not inclined to politics or politicians. If I had my way, it would be Ram Rājya with just one divine incarnation ruling the land for life and there would be no need for any corruption of any sort. But that’s just day-dreaming and will not happen for many centuries in India.
Coming back to elections in New Delhi, we have three Chief Minister hopefuls –
Kiran BediKejriwalAjay Maken
Kiran Bedi b. June 9, 1949 at 2:10 pm in Amritsar, India (74 E 51′, 31 N 37′). She is under Saturn daśā Venus antardaśā Saturn pratyantara in Utpanna Vimśottari daśā. This modified Vimśottari daśā is used as Moon is in the third house in her chart. Saturn is a yogakāraka planet generating a powerful Vimala viparīta yoga. In addition, it is the lord of 5th house (power) in dasāṁśa exalted in lagna. This exalted śani will bring her to power just as it has already propelled her as the face of the BJP to head the Delhi Elections.
Arvind Kejriwal b. August 16, 1968 at 11:46 pm in Hissar, India (75 E 43′, 29 N 10′). He is under Jupiter daśā Venus antardaśā and the worst Ketu Pratyantara. Ketu is māraka for the chart and is debilitated in 5th house in navāṁśa afflicting Mercury which is the giver of power. Ketu shows mistakes and impulsive decisions that will prove to be very costly in the political arena.
As indicated in my previous article, his star will shine only till this Venus antardaśā i.e. 23 Feb 2015. Thereafter, Sun antardaśā will come and this saṅkrānti doṣa will catch him and force him to change his clothes – कपडा बदलना पडेगा.
Ajay Maken b. Jan 12, 1964 at 10:30 am (speculative, see notes below) in New Delhi, India (77 E 12′, 28 N 36′). He is under Mars daśā Venus antara Jupiter pratyantara. Mars is a rājayoga giver in this chart as it is exalted malefic in the 12th house. His wife is very lucky for him as the upapada is in the house of luck (9th bhāva) and yogakāraka Venus is in lagna. There is no doubt that the Congress party has done well to choose him as their leader for Delhi. With a strong Saturn as lagneśa in the 12th house he has the capacity to rout his challengers but the time does not favour him very much. Given the storm that is propelling the BJP he will do well to improve the figures of the Congress from the dismal showing in the previous elections to a double digit figure … say 12 seats.
A praśna chart was used to determine approximate birth time. Praśna Data: Jan 23, 2015, Time: 12:10 pm, New Delhi, India.
Janma Tithi = (a) Sun 8°52’ = 9 Navamī or (b) Sun + Prāṇa Tithi = 9 + 4 (caturthī) = 13 (trayodaśī) à Ajay Maken was born on Kṛṣṇa Trayodaśī (K13) … praśna seems to be working
Janma Rāśi : Praśna Navāṁśa Rāśi = Mīna, trines to Janma Rāśi Vṛścika … praśna is working
Janma Lagna Determination
Praśna navāṁśa lagna = Siṁha (Janma Lagna can be agni rāśi or kumbha); Praśna navāṁśa lagneśa Sun in Mīna (Janma Lagna can be Pisces).
Praśna Lagna = Meṣa (rātri bala rāśi) à birth is in daytime thereby eliminating Siṁha Lagna as that would be a night birth. Similarly Pisces lagna chart, which is all over the internet, is quite absurd as that would have given him a head full of hair and strong kapha prākṛti. Meṣa lagna would have made him travel all over the country for education and abroad for work. Of the two remaining options of Dhanus and Kumbha, we have preferred Kumbha lagna making him a very good man and an able fighter. He is married to Radhika Sehgal and has three children, Aarushi, Ahana and Aujaswi as a Leo saptāṁśa would indicate.
Numbers Nimitta (Omens)
The Office of the Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi, which is responsible for the conduct of the February 7 assembly polls in the national capital has rejected the nominations of 230 candidates and approved the nomination papers of 693 after scrutiny. See the number ‘9’ [6+9+3 = 18, 1+8 =9] which belongs to Mars, the god of war who also rules the police and military.
After scrutiny, the highest number of valid nominations was 18 from the Burari Assembly seat and the lowest was four in the Ambedkar Nagar constituency. Mars is agin leading the numbers game as the number 18 indicates. [1+8=9]
Madness has Begun
A total of 121 first information reports have been lodged against various political parties in connection with the violation of the Model Code of Conduct in Delhi till now. According to the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi, the highest is against AAP. The AAP party which has openly said that it does not follow rules and regulations – they are ‘anarchists’ – Kejriwal’s words, takes the lead in disobedience of laws.
54 FIR’s have been lodged against AAP → 5+4 =9 (Mars is negative)
24 against the BJP → 2+4 = 6 (Venus is negative)
26 against the Congress → 2+6 =8 (Saturn is negative)
10 against the BSP → 1+0 = 1 (Sun is negative)
Delhi Assembly Elections 70 Seats
2013 Hung Assembly
My calculations show four scenario’s. These are with four assumptions which we clarify below:
This situation will occur if Narendra Modi storm continues to blow and takes over the elections. He is the face of ‘Future Hope for India’ and people will not let go of this hope so easily. Given his work load as the Prime Minister and the fact that he is going to be in a few gatherings, this scenario is very unlikely.
This situation occurs if the people have not yet forgiven Manmohan Singh for sleeping over reforms and not retiring if his health was not good. But this scenario is unlikely as we Indians are very forgiving and forgetting by nature.
This is the most likely scenario as the Congress under Ajay Maken is bound to improve its showing while the AAP takes a little hit for its antics. Kiran Bedi will prove to be a very energetic fighter and she has the will to perform. She is a go-getter and people of Delhi need someone who will deliver then from (a) endless traffic jams (b) expensive parking (c) crime. Yes she is a police officer and she will deliver them. That’s the picture. AAP will still get some votes as we in Delhi continue to get absurd electricity bills. Looks like some people in the electric supply department are playing lottery. I had to visit my heart doctor when slapped with an electric bill of ₹85,000. I will take up the matter after the elections and a new government is in place.
This will occur if during this Ketu pratyantara Arvind Kejriwal does some more of his funny tricks like sleeping on the road or tearing down electric wires. But this is unlikely as it looks like he has matured some.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to emerge as the single largest party in the coming Delhi elections with 35 seats, one short of majority, an opinion poll conducted by ABP News-Nielsen has predicted. The BJP is projected to get 29 seats while Congress is expected to get six seats in the 70-member House.
AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal seems to be the most preferred candidate for chief minister of Delhi with 48%, followed by Kiran Bedi of BJP with 42%. AAP is likely to emerge as the largest party with 37% vote share, followed by BJP with 33% and Congress with 18%. As per the survey, Kejriwal is seen as more capable than Bedi in solving most problems faced by Delhiites. However, for “maintaining law and order and women’s safety”, respondents preferred Bedi over Kejriwal.
The survey found that AAP maintained its strong hold over economically weaker sections and Muslims. The party also had substantial support among voters living in slums with nearly every second voter in slums intending to vote for the party. The survey said AAP had huge support among Muslim with nearly every two in three Muslim voters intending to vote for the party in the coming elections.
The survey found that Bedi’s anointment as BJP’s CM candidate was not helping the saffron party pull in additional voters.
The survey said voters were firmly aligned to their parties with very few intending to switch sides. However, there could be some fence-sitters currently saying they “may not vote for BJP” but could change their mind later, it added.
Kejriwal marginally pipped Bedi when it came to who did more “tamasha” than work for development. The opinion poll was conducted with 6,396 respondents in 35 constituencies by ABP News-Nielsen from January 25 to January 31. TNS for the Economic Times
AAP, led by tax-inspector-turned-activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal, could walk away with 36 to 40 seats in the 70-member legislative assembly, according to the latest findings from polling firm TNS for the Economic Times newspaper.
Let everyone lose and we shall be the happiest. No need to feed their ego, feed their spiritual growth
We admit that the prediction was completely wrong and the BJP has been defeated due to taking Kiran Bedi as their Chief Minister candidate at the last minute. One lesson we learn from this is not to take a chart at the face value without verifying the divisions. It is evident that Kiran Bedi’s dasamsa is wrong and the exalted Saturn is not her rajayoga-karaka but must be her enemy planet. D10 lagna could be either Virgo or Scorpio. Anyway, it is time she retired and allowed the regular BJP people to get back to their work. It was a 44 win situation until she entered the fray …now looks like they may just about get a double digit figure.
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went missing over the South China Sea on Saturday morning (8 Mar, 2014). The Boeing 777-200 took off from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, at 12:41 a.m. Saturday. It was scheduled to arrive in Beijing at 6:30 am the same day, after a 2,700-mile journey. Around 1:30 am, air traffic controllers in Subang, outside Kuala Lumpur, lost contact with the plane as it was flying over the sea between Malaysia and Vietnam. MH370 with 227 passengers and 12 crew members. It was cruising at 35,000 feet and the skies were clear. Besides, no distress signal was deployed.
First Post15 Mar
Even after three days there is no information on the missing flight MH370. In the age of information, not having answers instantly is feels horrible. But this is not the first time such a thing has happened. There are all sorts of stories afloat about terrorists but nothing of that sort seems to have happened. The vedic chart drawn for the moment of take-off for flight MH370 resembles another one – Air France Flight 447 (abbreviated AF447).
AF447 was a scheduled international flight from Galeão International Airport in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris, France. On 1 Jun 2009, the Airbus A330-203 airliner serving the flight crashed into the Atlantic Ocean, resulting in the deaths of all 216 passengers and 12 aircrew. The accident was the deadliest in the history of Air France. Details of AF447
Did not crash on water
Various Theories are doing the rounds, particularly about the flight falling into the ocean as tiny objects are found on the sea. Oil slicks, stretching for metres in the South China Sea, gave the first glimpse of hope followed by the spotting of an orange object and then a door! But one by one, all that has been dismissed.
For a natural disaster, the rajas planets Venus and Mercury must be afflicted by Mars. Further, for a flight (vehicle), chara rāśi (movable signs) are expected.
MH370: Venus and Mercury are together in Capricorn (chara rāśi) having the graha dṛṣṭi of Mars from Libra
AF447: Venus and Mercury are together in Aries (chara rāśi) with Mars
The violence comes from storm clouds or water elements (ruled by Venus) if Mars is in Venus navāṁśa, else it is from earth movement (ruled by Mercury) if in Mercury navāṁśa. Mars would need a solar trigger.
MH370: Mars is in Libra (Ve) navāṁśa aspected by exalted Sun in Aries navāṁśa
AF447: Mars is in Taurus (Ve) navāṁśa conjoined the Sun
Having confirmed that there was a natural disaster happening (of some sort), we need to check failure of the machine-energy system. For this, the Sun must be effectively blocked by a malefic. From Sūrya Lagna, Rāhu must be ill placed and also aspect the Sun. Rāhu is always looking to destroy the Sun by its conjunctions and aspects. Jupiter can intervene and save but then the negative must he higher to confirm that the machine-energy system failed.
MH370: Sun in Aquarius with Rāhu in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in 9th house from it in Libra. Jupiter does aspect Rāhu to try to save the machine but the conjunction of Saturn and Mars shows that the evil is much greater.
AF447: Sun in Taurus with Rāhu in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in 9th house from it in Capricorn. There is no saving grace of any benefic planet.
Now that we know that it was a natural disaster like a terrible electrical storm that demolished the aircraft, we need to check for survivors. For this we need to examine Jupiter, the saviour of the human race. We also need to see the position of Ketu, the significator of the vertical (aerial) direction. These should neither be ill placed, weak nor beaten up to save some lives.
MH370: Both Jupiter and Ketu in duṣthāna. Jupiter is in the 8th house while Ketu is in the 6th house. Involvement of 8th house shows few survivors or none at all.
AF447: Both Jupiter and Ketu in duṣthāna. Jupiter is in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in the 3rd house while Ketu is in the 8th house. Involvement of 8th house shows few survivors or none at all.
No terrorist attack
Based on the unknown identities of two passengers, it was speculated that they were terrorists who had purchased ‘one-way’ tickets together for travel to Amsterdam, Europe via Beijing using stolen passports. This happens all the time in this part of the world. Even authorities in the airports are known to tear away visa pages from passports for the black market where these fetch good money from desperate immigrant seekers. People thought it was the ‘toothpaste’ bomb. Honestly, if toothpaste is going to be used for terror bombs, then most of us will have to go back to using dantoon (neem sticks that are chewed to create a brush at one end).
Finally, the Chinese Martyrs’ Brigade (CMB for short) realised, a little too late, that it’s a good time for some media attention and claimed it did the terror job. The encrypted Hushmail message stated “you kill one of our clan – we kill 100 of yours as pay back” referring to a 29-people stabbing incident at the train station in Kunming, China. It is very unlikely that one of them could have jumped 35,000 feet in the air and stabbed the aircraft with his knife! Those things happen only in Chinese Kung-Fu movies.
Anyway, the chart does not indicate a terror attack although Mars is involved with two other malefics in the 12th house (foreign travel). Mars will protect his home, the ascendant which simply means that it would put up a good fight against Rāhu and Saturn.
Having ruled out terror and such things, the two options are whether (A) the natural disaster (Mras afflicts Mercury, Venus) like storm or some electric spark in the high altitude was the chief cause or (B) whether a mechanical fault (Sun-Rahu) was the chief cause.
Most reports are that the weather was good but that’s never sufficient to confirm local activity on the spot. While the natural trigger was minimal as Mars is also Lagna lord for MH370 Chart, it was the chief cause for AF470 as it was the 12th Lord. Either way, none seem to have survived (C) Ketu and Jupiter in dusthana
Praśna Mārga states that the disturbances in a journey are to be studied from the 7th bhāva.
The 7th house is Taurus and is vargottama indicating great strength, and that was the only thing which troubled me as a vargottama lagna has the power to protect. But the 7th bhāva has the rāśi dṛṣṭi of Saturn, Rāhu and Mars, all retrograde. Further, the 7th lord Venus (both rāśi and aṁśa) is placed in Capricorn and is involved in a parivartana yoga with Saturn. Therefore, instead of Venus, Saturn will be indicating the disturbances in the journey. Saturn is with Mars and Rāhu indicating the deaths of the passengers and a deadly end to the journey. That was the basis of the prediction made in the article. The exalted Moon in the 7th bhāva is also the bādhakeśa and under the aspect of Mars is going to form Rudra yoga.
A closer look at the navamśa shows a pāpa kartari yoga on the 7th bhāva caused by Sun, Saturn and a debilitated Ketu.
Recent Report on Flight Path
The latest reports on the flight path indicate a retrograde behaviour where, instead of flying north towards Beijing, the aircraft reversed and the final direction it chose to fly was South-West which is ruled by Rāhu. It is now clear that among the 3 planets – Saturn, Mars and Rāhu, the latter decided the flight path reversal. Saturn has the parivartana with Venus and planets conjoining are Mars and Rāhu. Among the two, Rāhu is the one afflicting as Mars is lagneśa. Besides, Rāhu has higher longitude.
Khareśa: Rāhu is Khareśa of the chart as it lords the 4th bhāva from navamśa lagna. It afflicts the lagneśa Mars as well as the functional controller of the journey viz. Saturn. Rāhu is also debilitated in Sagittarius navamśa which specifically indicates “fall from a height”.
The Guardian reports “According to two US officials who spoke to ABC News, the 777’s data reporting system was shut down at 1.07am, while the transponder – which sends back information to civilian radar regarding performance, location and altitude – was turned off at 1.21am.”
The scheduled journey was 5h49’ and the compressed Vimśottari daśā is given below:
Vimśottari Mahā Daśā (Using local Malaysia time)
Moon: 2014-03-08 (12:34:18 am) – 2014-03-08 (1:01:45 am)
Mars: 2014-03-08 (1:01:45 am) – 2014-03-08 (1:20:58 am) → Data Reporting system shut at 1:07’am
Rah: 2014-03-08 (1:20:58 am) – 2014-03-08 (2:10:22 am) → Transponder shut, flight turned SW
Jup: 2014-03-08 (2:10:22 am) – 2014-03-08 (2:54:17 am) → Flight seen in radar
Sat: 2014-03-08 (2:54:17 am) – 2014-03-08 (3:46:27 am) → Journey ends?
Merc: 2014-03-08 (3:46:27 am) – 2014-03-08 (4:33:07 am)
Ket: 2014-03-08 (4:33:07 am) – 2014-03-08 (4:52:20 am)
Ven: 2014-03-08 (4:52:20 am) – 2014-03-08 (5:47:14 am)
Sun: 2014-03-08 (5:47:14 am) – 2014-03-08 (6:03:42 am)
The last known position of MH370 was at 1.21am when the transponder was shut off at 35,000 feet roughly 90 miles off the east coast of Malaysia, as the Boeing MH370 with 239 people on board made its way towards Vietnam, en route to Beijing. This was a minute after the period of Rāhu started. It was during this period of Rāhu that the flight was turned in the South-Western direction.
From there, plot indications show the plane zigzagged towards the Thai island of Phuket and then, at 2.15am, when the period of Jupiter started, MH370 either (A) continued on northwest route which would lead it towards the Andaman Islands and perhaps onward to Europe OR (B) further south. Malaysian military officials have previously confirmed that an aircraft that could be MH370 was last seen on military radar at 2.15am some 200 miles off Malaysia’s west coast. It is noteworthy that the missing flight was suddenly seen when Jupiter’s period started.
Hand of Nature
We cannot ignore the natural elements indicated by Mercury and Venus in chara rāśi having the dṛṣṭi of Mars.
There is no further information at to the time of end of this journey. Where would the aircraft be between 2:54’am to 3:46’am? That’s the question which if answered, should be able to locate the flight.
What is most disturbing is the role of the Sun which is the lord of the tenth house showing the boss or controller of the flight. The Sun is in the 6th bhāva from Ārūḍha Lagna and is also in a navamśa ruled by Mars, which points a finger at the pilots. The 3rd and 8th bhāva from ārūḍha lagna is either ruled by Ketu or has Ketu in it showing the accident as the final report is likely to say.
No. it’s not pilot suicide! Such theories are quite baseless.
It could be a hijacking as is indicated by the malefic Saturn and Rahu and Mars
But that is not why the disaster happened which is likely to have killed everyone. There was the hand of the elements and it was a watery grave. Honestly I don’t know why they are looking in the Andaman Islands. They should spend the time looking in the water.
I have always maintained that the passengers were death (or at least unconscious) when the final end happened. So it was painless. Point is what caused this state – I don’t know as yet.
I was horrified to read that a young student, a teenager kid, had died due to his hairstyle! Delhi has become a bad place, but this is the limit, the pits. People get killed every day for various reasons normally around the three W’s (wealth, women and wine or rather drugs these days) but to die due to hairstyle is unheard of, it’s the pits – shows the murky level to which our society has fallen. The planet ruling ‘hair’ is Ketu and Saturn normally indicates the dead or cut hair. Hairstyle or hair colour is definitely Ketu influenced by some other graha. Nido Tania, a first year (18-19 year old) student of Lovely Professional University, and son of Arunachal Pradesh MLA Nido Pavitra, was beaten to death by six to seven people led by a shopkeeper in New Delhi after a quarrel on January 29, 2014 at 1.30pm. Nido Tania died in AIIMS on Thursday or was brought dead. His body had more than 40 injury marks although the Primary Pre-Medical report has ruled out death due to injuries.
A youth claiming to be Tania’s cousin alleged he saw an injury mark on his neck and his lips were torn. Let’s look at the chart of the crime chart. He was beaten with sticks and rods by the shopkeeper and his six associates and sustained several injuries including one in the neck. The quarrel began on Wednesday, when the shopkeeper of a sweet shop made fun of the hairstyle of Nido Tania, to which the youth and his friends objected. The altercation took place at a shop Rajasthan Paneer Bhandar, located at A-83 Lajpat Nagar. Some racist remarks were made at Nido Tania by the shopkeeper and his friends, after which Nido allegedly broke the glass at the shop. Later, as Nido was walking alone in front of the shop, the shopkeeper and his friends attacked him with rods and sticks, and beat him badly.
Taurus Lagna with Venus in 8th house (danger) with the Moon in chandrāṣṭama doṣa (Maraṇa Kāraka Sthāna) showing the danger of death. Mars aspecting this chandrāṣṭama Moon indicates the trigger – a glass top of the counter was shattered by the boy when he was teased by the shop assistants for his hairstyle. Ketu in the 12th house (final end) is aspected by Mars bringing in piśāca doṣa of sorts. Mars and Ketu jointly influencing the 8th or 12th house in rāśi chart can show danger of death. Enemy is in the 6th house – Libra showing the Market Place. Saturn shows a servant i.e. the shop assistant who is aided by many ‘Rāhu’. Some astrologers would say that this combination can indicate people of a different religious community as well. The malefic planets aspecting the chandrāṣṭama (intention of giving death) are Mars and Saturn showing that metal rods were used like a spear and sticks (clubs- Saturn).
The local police was called in, who took Nido Tania to the police station, and later released him, after the youth paid a fine of ₹ 7 or 10,000 as compensation. Jyotiṣa: Ketu which is placed in the 12th bhāva (expenses, losses) aspected by 12th Lord Mars by graha dṛṣṭi. Chandrāṣṭama with the lagneśa indicates instant death. Nido did leave the venue seeming fine but when he slept, he never woke up. He was admitted to AIIMS the next day when his roommates discovered that he was not awakening till 2.00pm. His heart was not beating. They took him to AIIMS but was declared dead.
This may sound like a story from a comic book, but it is not so – its reality that most people today like to ignore and push aside as superstition. The fury of the goddess is well known and any attempt to instigate her would lead to great destruction. Let us look at the events leading to the great devastation of Uttarakhand by flooding of Uttar Kashi.
The government has tried to build up dams to overcome the power shortage. This has been opposed by locals and some prominent politicians like Uma Bharti and B. C. Khanduri of the BJP since it would lead to the submergence of the Shrine, and efforts to construct dams have been delayed indefinitely. Previously, in 1882, an attempt to shift the shrine was immediately followed by havoc in Kedar Valley. There is some strange connection between these guardian goddess and the Kedarnath jyotirliñga.
The Joint Temples
These are not just any other Shakti temples, they are among the 108 Shakti Pitha mentioned in the Devi Bhagavat. Dhari Devi is a temple on the banks of the Alaknanda River in the Garhwal Region of Uttarakhand state, India. It houses the upper half of an idol of goddess Kali specifically called “Dhari Devī” that, according to local lore, changes in appearance during the day from a girl, to a woman, and then to an old lady. Perched atop a 20 metre high rock, the temple of Dhari Devi is situated on the banks of river Alaknada. One has to travel a distance of 19 kms. from Srinagar (Pauri Garhwal) on Srinagar-Badrinath highway upto Kaliya Saur, then down trek another half a kilometer towards Alaknanda river. According to a local legened, the temple was once washed off by floods, while floating the idol struck against a rock, the villagers heard the cries of the idol. On reaching the site they heard a divine voice instructing them to install the idol as it was, on the spot it was found. Since then the fierce looking idol remains where it was, known as Dhari Devi, under the open sky, and thousands of devotees on the way to Badrinath pay their obeisance to it. The temple of Dhari Devi in Srinagar hosts only the upper part of idol of Godess Dhari, the remaining lower part is believed to be in Kalimath in Rudraprayag district. It is believed that the idol of Dhari Devi shall not be put under roof. For the same reason, the idols in Dhari Devi Temple are put under open sky. Taking photographs of Dhari Devi idols is strictly prohibited. The village near the temple is name after godess Dhari and known as Dhari Village. A hanging bridge over Alaknanda river connects the Dhari Devi temple to Dhari Village.
Now, the lower half of the idol of Kali is located in Kālimaṭh Temple. These joint temples are exactly at NE-SW direction (see adjoining image) symbolising Kali as sleeping with her feet in NE direction and head in the SE direction. This causes the energy to flow in the NE direction, which in jyotiṣa, is the direction of Jupiter (Iśāna Śiva), the parameṣṭhi guru. The upper part of the devī with the head symbolises the calming of Kali by Śiva, the Guru. The lower part of Kali is not in the form of an idol and instead, is worshipped as the Śrī Yantra. In this manner we learn that the Śrī Yantra, as established by Ādi Śaṅkara at Kālimaṭh, is the yoni of Śaktī from which all creation proceeds.
The Kedarnath jyotirliñga is exactly North from Kālimaṭh (see adjoining image) symbolising the husband-wife or Śiva-Śaktī relationship. In this Kedarnath being to the north (Mercury direction for ahimsa) is constantly calming the devī who is in the south (Mars direction, anger, agitated and at war).
On June 15th, 2013, the idol of Dhara Devī was removed to be shifted to another location to facilitate the construction of the same dam, which locals were opposing ever since the conception of the project with the belief that the moving of the Dhara Devī would somehow agitate Kali. They were right in their belief as any movement would lead to a change in the angle of the Dhara Devī and Kālimaṭh, besides altering the distance. There are energies we human beings do not understand as yet and it is best to let these spiritual shrines where these energies are contain, be maintained.
With the shifting of Dhara Devī, the agitated Kali has been woken up, and she seeks the demon Raktabīja (seed of blood). As per mythology, Raktabīja took various bodies and she continued to destroy each one. Primarily this indicates unimaginable bloodshed and death. Exatly on the next day massive cloudburst and flash floods started in Uttarkhand and even today, when official (?) death figures are at 1000 (identified people/bodies), the unofficial figures is way beyond 5000 deaths and more are still following as the rains are returning.
Restore the idol of Dhara Devī (Kali torso) to its original shrine and start the prayers that calm her down. Shri Yantra sādhanā has to be maintained at Kālimaṭh and Bael leaf must be offered to Kedarnath. If this is done, then Kali will calm down and the agitation of nature will stop. If this is not done, then the agitation of Kali shall spread throughout India and this will prove to be one of the worst years in the history of modern India.
Śrī Pranab Mukherjee is the presidential candidate of the ruling Congress Party while the other serious contender of the opposition is Śrī P.A.Sangma who was originally pushed by Naveen Patnaik and later supported by the BJP. Pranab Mukherjee has now got the support of Mulayam Singh (UP) and Bengal.
Ajai Bhambi gives a chart of Śrī Pranab Mukherjee with the date of birth as 1st February 1935 at 5.40’pm Kandi, India 88 E 02′, 23 N 57′. Now Kandi is a town and a municipality in Murshidabad district in the Indian state of West Bengal which is very unlikely to be the birth place of Pranab Mukherjee. His personal website states “son of Kamada Kinkar Mukherjee and Rajlakshmi Mukherjee, Shri Pranab Mukherjee, born on 11th December, 1935 in a small village, Mirati of Birbhum District”. Refer: http://www.astrospeak.com/Pranab-Mukherjee-cannot-become-PM/articleshow/4440048.cms where Ajai Bhambi argues with this chart that Pranab Mukherjee cannot be the President. Indranil Ray continues in the same tone using the same chart stating “Pranab Mukherjee cannot become President of India”. Refer: http://indranilray.blogspot.in/2012/06/pranab-mukherjee-cannot-become.html
K.N.Rao also uses the same date of birth as 1st February 1935 and the time of 5:52’:20”pm while the place of birth is Calcutta, India. Using an almost similar chart as Ajai Bhambi, K.N.Rao argues that Pranab Mukherjee will be the next President of India. Refer: http://www.journalofastrology.com/article.php?article_id=423
Anil Aggarwala has done well by using the filing of nomination time for both Pranab Mukherjee and P.A.Sangma. Both filed papers on 28 June 2012 at New Delhi but at different times. Pranab Mukherjee filed at 11.25’am while P.A.Sangma filed at 2.31’pm. His conclusion using the aṣṭakavarga method is that “P.A.Sangma is going to suffer a humiliating defeat”. http://www.mundaneastro.org/?p=2063
Another valuable source at Saptarishi Astrology states “The date of birth of Mr.Pranab Mukherjee is 31st January 1935(one day before the day taken by most astrologers) and the time is 16:52. And every relative of him will vouchsafe that he was born at his native village Mirati and not in Calcutta.”
Prediction: Long back when Pranab Mukherjee was being considered along with others by the Congress Party we had stated with a definite voice that
Pranab Mukherje will be the next President of India.
Now that’s as straight a prediction as it can get, and that too when his name was just being considered by the Congress. To the fact that Pranab Mukherjee was born at Mirati and not Calcutta or Kandi, we are very sure. We shall give the analysis and reasons later when the results are declared.
As a natural state of mind, tolerance indicates an ability to coexist with others, to respect alternative points of view, to neither dominate nor be dominated. It suggests both the ability to be yourself as well as allow others that freedom. It is both sturdy individuality and acceptance of other points of view [Life Positive]. Suma Varughese writes that “Differences create gaps, but we need to reap love, not hatred, out of diversity. And to do so, we need to relearn the long forgotten value of tolerance”. She goes on to explain the negative implication of the word as conceived by the human mind in the words of filmmaker Anand Patwardhan, “It’s a bit of a negative concept. It means living with something but not being obliged to like it. That’s not good enough. Hindus must do more than tolerate Muslims and Christians. I prefer to use love and compassion instead.”
The point they are missing out is that the human psyche is built on the foundation of home teaching, family learning of values and schooling and finally colored in college. Schools in India are primarily ‘non-secular’ and have affiliation to one faith or another, and they also preach their faith is a very subtle manner by way of morning prayers, food habits, cultural events and participation, church events, honor rolls and in almost every manner, the particular flavor of the school faith gets pushed into the psyche of the student. This creates a problem in that this may in some manner clash with the teachings and habits developed at home and what every ‘schooled and civilized’ human being ends up with is a fractured psyche.
Fortunately, most colleges are largely secular in India, America and most of the world [that I have seen]. But then at this stage it does not matter as the damage has already been done and what happens now is that the damaged psyche tries to adjust with the changed ‘more-secular’ scenario of college. This is where the first lessons in tolerance are learnt, often through the hard way.
The Jyotish of ‘Tolerance’
Tolerance is the nature attributed to the planet Jupiter and the natural sign is Pisces. The tolerance in a person is measured by the strength and influence of Jupiter in his horoscope. The influence of Jupiter on the lagna and lagna lord (also called Paka Lagna) plays a very significant role.
Tolerance is tested when natural malefic planets like Rähu, Sun, Mars or Saturn aspect Jupiter, the lagna or the lagna lord at times of feeling cheated, hurt ego, anger and sorrow respectively. All these influences should be carefully examined as the psyche is a very delicate and personal aspect of every individual and the particular psyche is altered by these malefic aspects on the three factors stated above – Lagna, Paka Lagna (Lagna lord) and dhi (intelligence) significator Jupiter.
The world is made up of checks and balances. While these malefic planets affect the intelligence negatively, they are countered by four other planets – Ketu, Venus, Moon and Mercury respectively.
1.When Rähu causes shocks and sudden reversals and terrible injury to the psyche to the extent of thinking of suicide and self destruction or global destruction, Ketu counters this with religious philosophy and renunciation of the world instead of destruction. This nodal axis is a delicate balance in any chart.
2.The hurt ego caused by the Sun that results in distancing from family or friends or near and dear ones is soothed by Venus and true love, when it comes into your life, will cause these ego problems to evaporate and you start to renew bonds with family and friends.
3.The physical horror of Mars caused through accidents, death, battles and war leading to anger and hatred is dissolved by the compassion of the Moon when one learns to forgive and forget. The Moon causes one to realize that enmity is as fleeting as the day and that there are no enemies, there are only ‘mirrors’. What or who you see as an enemy is, in reality, only an alter ego of yours.
4.And Saturn, the greatest sorrow, the repository of all that is shameful, degraded, dirty, poor and heinous – rules the hearts of dirty old men who hold ‘malice towards one and all’. Little children have no place for this sorrow as their hearts have not hardened to the cries of the world and they laugh at the smallest of joys life has to offer.
Think of these pairs as symbolizing opposite aspects of life and death choises we make everyday, every moment.
…that was todays thought or simply rambling rhapsody of Rath! Will continue this tomorrow.
