Can babies see auras?

Our bodies are electromagnetic and this is proved beyond doubt by kirlean photography. Our electric field is powered by the 7 energy vertices located inside the chitrini nadi, inside the vajrini nadi inside the shushumna nadi, located along our spine. The vital energy/praan flows along channels called naadis in Sanskrit. There are minor chakras located in the palms and the soles of the feet which we can sense sometimes as a whirring feeling.

So this layer of electricity which projects beyond the boundaries of the physical body is called the aura. The aura is composed of energies derived from the 7 separate energy vortexes/chakra which spin at different energies. Thus the composite of these 7 can have all colors varying from white/gold to brown/black depending on which chakra is the dominant. A sage will have white-gold aura while a criminal will have a muddy aura.

And as with electrical charges, repulsion/attraction takes place among auras of individuals. People whose auras are compatible like being physically close to each other and people with repelling auras prefer keeping a social distance between them. In very crowded buses/trains where everyone sort of sticks to each other, it can be hell for someone of very clean aura energy. The lower level auras subconsciously request the higher level person to help them and he does it by depleting his own energy reserves. Dead bodies have no aura thus we feel uncomfortable as there is no interaction on the aura levels.

So what is this got to do with babies? Babies can see auras clearly. In fact babies eyes are unfocussed and they tend to focus/unfocus around you rather than at you, this is because they are observing the auras. They can see ‘colors’ of your voice, your thoughts! Babies are highly vulnerable and auras never lie so it is safer for them to interact with others using auras as a guide. And in my personal opinion, babies are still on the border of the supernatural and mundane life. Especially babies who are still exclusively on their mother’s milk have no ego. Their sense of “me” has not developed, they are still unformed in a way and have access to other subtler sources of information. So in India, very young babies are not taken out of the house, to strange houses/ places, to protect them.

Can babies see auras?

Learn to see auras (step-wise post here). Just remember you could see auras as a child and then gradually forgot to see. Seeing auras is very easy like re-learning to ride a cycle. If you want to see auras with your open eyes, remember that you will have to pay attention to your peripheral vision, let your eyes unfocus. With open eyes the aura is seen densest at the shoulder/neck area and your conscious mind is working for you. If you want to “see” auras with your eyes closed it is even more easier. You close your eyes and ‘think’ of the person, a color or a name of a color may flash in your mind. Here you have made your subconscious mind to work for you. On bare skin, interactions of auras is felt as a warm or cold sensation, your hair stands on end if a negative energy is near you! Sometimes you ‘smell’ auras, your nose tells you that some person is smelling ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Sometimes you get a ‘taste’ for no reason, ‘metallic tastes’ indicate negative energy auras.

Back to the aura and babies, small children, till they are sent to school and till they ruin their extra-vision by focussing on mobile and TV screens, can see auras. In schools, the children are forced to focus their eyes and look only at what is in their direct vision. So they gradually forget seeing out of their peripheral vision. Also small children are not aware that they are doing something different, it is routine for them, so they never mention and we adults never ask. If you want to really check if this is true, ask a 2-3 year old child (who doesn’t watch too much TV/mobile screens) “what color am I?” and be prepared to hear a really fantastic answer, from blue to pink to yellow to red! But if you do make a child conscious about this ability, please remember that now you have a responsibility too. Because small children can see everything that has an aura, which includes spirits/pretatmas and other undesirables. Generally these spirits do not bother with humans, but if they realise that some human is aware of their presence and can see them then you have had it. They will not leave you, and this is how children get their childhood “imaginary friends”. There is nothing imaginary about them and they are certainly not friends.A incident, last year.

One of my client’s mother died, he went with his family including a 4yr old son to his native place, completed the anteyshti/cremation by fire, and 13th day tarpan/funeral rituals and came back. All routine. But then his house suddenly became “heavier”, random thuds and wind inside the house got him all concerned. So I and my brother went over to his house, The house was full of black energy, with shapes flying around. We went in and noticed the 4yr old talking animatedly alone in a room. He saw us and came to talk to us. He told us that he was talking to “chhota bhim” (cartoon character) and that it was a secret. So we talked some more till the entire storyline became clear to us.

At the 13th day tarpan/funeral rites, the pandit calls all the departed spirits from the family for taking their share of the pinda/funeral offerings. This incompetent pandit did call them but could not send them back. So they were lingering around. Our 4yr old could see them and he recognised his dead grandmother and they talked. Then the others joined and even more randomly roaming spirits realised here was someone alive who could interact. So they all became friends and asked permission to go with him. As they then looked like cartoon characters (pretatmas/spirits can change shapes to suit/soothe the victim) he said ok. And they all came to his house in the city. This incident was quite a shock and then it was a terrible clean up process because we had to send every single spirit away, to clean up the black energies, set up guards so they couldnt come back and to counsel an innocent 4yr old about talking to “strangers” and inviting them home.

A note of caution again, if you choose to work with energy remember that all energies are not clean and safe, there are evil and very strange things going on too. But working with energies is also very liberating and you can help your own self better. Its just like learning to drive a bike, you wont get on without your helmet would you? So here your spiritual practice and your tools from reiki, black threads, mantra, salt, lemons to amulets are your helmets. Suit up and practice something new. Well, not so new as you could do it when you were a child, it is just that you have forgotten. All of us, as babies and young children, could see the astral dimension with our eyes! So today, make an attempt at seeing auras again.

Make your very own amulet

Objects of power have always been around from Alladin’s magic lamp with a genie to Harry potter’s wand with a phoenix feather. Black magic practitioners use mirrors in which hapless pretatmas are trapped. And the really mean ones actively contract with higher level negative entities who can be linked by gold/gems/bones and other stuff. And if you know how, even tattoos can be charged with mantras and using special inks inked on your body to make your body an object of power.

Our Indian sages preferred using water charged with mantras for doing”magic” and you can use Vibhuti to make your personal object of power for protection. In my past posts, I have described how to perform a homam (sacred fire ritual) as a astrological planetary remedy. The homam yields highly charged Vibhuti/ash which can be stuffed inside an amulet and worn as a protective jewellery.

Make your very own amulet

Make your very own amulet

You can buy such amulets in your local Indian jewellery shop. When you bring it home, wash it in clean water and keep it beside you as you do your homam. You will set up the amulet after you have done the homam, do not speak anything else as after you finish your recitation, sit in a contemplative pose and after the ash has cooled sufficiently, stuff sufficient quantity of the vibhuti/ash inside a silver amulet (pictures above). Use a bit of melted wax to seal the amulet watertight. You can wear such an amulet around your neck in a pretty chain or around your bicep. This was your basic planetary remedy Vibhuti talisman.

An added extra would be if you can lay your hands on birchwood bark (bhojpatra), twigs of the pomogranate tree, saffron(kesar) and a small silver plate. These things are generally available in puja material stores in India.

Make your very own amulet Make your very own amulet

Before the homam, sharpen the end of the twig, dissolve the kesar strands in a drop of water and cut out a tiny piece of the bhojpatra which can be rolled and fit into your amulet. Keep these ready in front of you while you perform the homam. Then when you finish reciting all the mantras, dip the twig point in kesar and using it as an ink write just the mantra which you have chanted 108 times in Sanskrit script on the bhojpatra carefully. Just one change would be to replace the “swaha” at the end with “namah”.

When you finish writing, blow thrice on the bhojpatra and fold it without tearing and stuff it inside the amulet. Fill the remaining space in the amulet with the Vibhuti and seal the amulet shut. See, its so easy, you just made for yourself your own personal talisman and as you have made it for yourself it will be much more effective that what an professional astrologer would have made. When you wear it you will always be carrying around, and being recharged by the energies that you have invoked during the homam.

If you want to use more powerful mantras for protection in your amulet, This is what you do. Follow the homam preparatory phase as per my earlier post on how to perform a homam (sacred fire ritual) Then for the second phase use a the Chamunda mantra. This is how to invoke it.

  1. After the preparatory phase mantras are done, recite the Devi Gayatri, “Om devyyai Brahmandaiyyi vidhmahe, Mahatshaktaiyyi cha dhimahi tanno devi prachodayat Om”
  2. Then recite the siddhakunjika stotra from Devi Mahatmya (Durga Saptashati) once. Whenever you say “swaha” drop a few drops of ghee into the agni/fire.
  3. Then say the navavarana mantra, “ॐ ऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे स्वाहा” 108 times. With each swaha drop a drop of ghee in the fire.
  4. After you finish the 108 repetitions, recite “Om” once.
  5. Finish by reciting “Om Shri Paradevata arpanmastu”

Make the amulet with the vibhuti and the bhojpatra (write “ॐ ऐं ह्रीं क्लीं चामुण्डायै विच्चे” on the bhojpatra) as above and you have made yourself a very very powerful amulet which you can use for ever if you seal it tightly and properly.

Amulets generally do not exhaust their store of energy, but in case you are faced with severe negativity the amulet may get exhausted and break open on its own. In such a case discard the entire thing in running water/stream/sea or if that is not possible bury it in some isolated place.

If you have learnt how to see auras, the aura of the amulets you have just made will be white-gold and when you wear it, this white-gold mixes with your body’s overall aura increasing its overall positivity and adding protection. It is really beautiful like watercolours merging. In fact everyone should really learn to see auras, it is quite useful.

Evil fathers, astrologically

Just like the mother, the father is equally a very important source of stability for the child. If the mother confers emotional stability the father grants physical stability. Mothers can be negligent, and fathers can be indifferent.

In a horoscope, the 9th house determines the parental figures, the fathers brothers, the grandfathers, the males in the fathers family, the ancestors as a group. But the actual physical father is defined by the 10th house. There are differing opinions on this distinction but this is what I have actually seen in my practice. Also it is logical as the 4th house is the mother’s and the house opposite that the 10th is the father’s.

In addition to the 10th house lord, planets placed in the the 10th house, the Sun is the natural pitrukaraka, significator of the father. As the moon/mother provides up with emotional stability the sun/father provides us with a physical stability, place in the society, and is linked with our ego.

Fathers are meant to be strict and to discipline, (this function is linked with Saturn in the horoscope). Most fathers do it and with pride in their children. They work hard so as to provide for the child and do love in there own rather distant way. Being a father is an enormous responsibility and most of us do it willingly as we are caring for our own blood, our genetic link to the next generation.

Evil fathers, astrologically

But there are fathers who really dont care and may even be abusive to their children. One of my clients is such an example. His birth horoscope is quite good to look at. Sun in Aries in the 10th house with the lord of the 10th, Mars in the Ascendent Cancer (Sun in Aries is exalted, highest energy state and Mars in Cancer is debilitated, lowest energy state). The father is immensely rich with several businesses, a big house and even takes time to look after the son, buy him the necessities of life. But has never given the son money, never even as a gift. Offers money often but never gives. Likes keeping the sons dependent on his largesse like a cat and mouse game. In the Indian context his behaviour is out of character as Indian parents generally fulfil the children’s demands of laptops and clothes, shoes and stuff. There is no concept of children working during the holidays or in part time jobs like in the western countries. But I was curious as the basic horoscope did show an exalted Sun to offset the debilitated Mars. So I checked the 9th divisional chart/Navamsha. The Navamsha chart is a one step deeper into your birth horoscope and can be used to map out the inner energies of the graha. In this Navamsha chart, the exalted Sun of Aries actually shifted to Libra thus was debilitated. Thus this father was superficially good but had a negative core of energy and liked hurting his son on the psychological (Mars in Cancer) level.

The 6th house is the house of debts, disease, arguments, enemies and so if the pitrukaraka (determinant of the father), the 10th house lord or the Sun or even Saturn is placed here in the birth horoscope, you can work out which way this relationship is going to go.

The 8th house is the house of death, benefits from other’s death, medical operations, accidents, secrets and routes. If the pitrukarak graha are located here the child may be denied a fathers love either by death or absence of the father. The reason for the absence may be anything, the father may actually be working double shifts to support the family so not available to the child. He may love his child but the child can never experience it because there is no opportunity, no time. So from the perception of the child the father never loved him.

The 12th house is the house of the unknowns, of losses, of the subconscious and the unconscious. Somethings which we never know in our waking state. If the pitrukaraka/agents representing the father, end up in this house again the “father experience” is something the child will never know in his conscious life, though in his dreams in his subconscious states he may receive guidance from paternal figures.It is very traumatising for young children to cope with neglect and abuse from the father, affecting his very personality, his courage and confidence and the way he handles people and situations. One wishes for fatherly love but time cannot come back. And even when one grows up, still there in a tiny corner of the heart where lies a neglected child. And you can never tell this out aloud as no one would understand and may even say that you are ungrateful thus deepening the initial hurt.

But you can heal yourself. If you ever feel in your inner most heart that you have never received your fathers love, do this one thing, write out a list of all the things you imagine a fathers love would mean. Maybe eating an icecream together? Maybe your dad teaching you to ride a bicycle? Dad helping you with your homework? Cuddling you as you go to sleep? Maybe just hugging you hard and saying “I love you my precious child!”. Keep this list and then when you become a father yourself do this all as a father with your child. And when you see your young child laugh, laugh with him both as a father and that long-ago child that was you.

Or is you have been initiated to Reiki, you can this sequence of hon sha zhe so nen, dai ko mu, cho ku re, sei hei ki, hon sha zhe sho nen to heal your heart of the past trauma. Do it regularly for 21 days for at least 5 minutes everyday to feel the difference.

Doing these healings may or may not repair your relationship with your own father, the source of your childhood hurt. But it will definitely free you from the excess baggage and allow you to be more hopeful and enjoy your relationship with your own child.

Your challenge for this life is, you were never shown an example of what a loving father is like, but you have to learn from your experience, to learn from the negative example, to ace your personal test.

To accept and learn from your experiences is the whole purpose of this life. That and ensuring that the hurts you received from others are never handed out by your own heart to others.

 

Evil fathers, astrologically

 

Mother devils, astrologically possible?

In our Sanatan dharma traditionally the parents are considered to be on par with the divine itself, Matrudevata and Pitrudevata. And they are! they give us birth, take care of us, love us then help us financially, enjoy our marriages and then help in taking care of their grandchildren too. Most parents are like this, some may even more dedicated and go through severe personal hardships to take care of their children.

But unfortunately as every thing has an other side, this “parent” thing also has its own black side. In my practice I have seen extraordinary parents who were so good, divine even, but I have seen such parents who were indifferent, actively disliked their children and some who were actually evil. Children of such parents grow up to be highly conflicted and complex personalities. Imagine how it would be like for a young child, where everyone around them says that parents are always good, and they know in their innocent minds that their parents are not like that. But because they are so young they feel it is their fault or something and then their mental trauma begins.

Mother devils, astrologically possible?

Astrologically the moon and the lord of the 4th house represent the mother. If either or both of these 2 grahas are placed in the 6th, 8th, 12th houses or under malefic aspects the love of the mother is denied.

  1. In the 6th, the mother may behave like a enemy and a cause of (psychological or physical) disease, debt and ruin.
  2. In the 8th, the mother may be physically violent, cause injury, she may actually die or live separately.
  3. In the 12th the mother will be absent, either physically dead or insane or indifferent.

Another possibility is the factors causing baal-arishta, sufferings of the childhood operating causing the mother/father to behave badly. And if the birth is in a Gandant Lunar mansion/ Nakshatra and the required astrological remedy for Gandant have not been performed.

If the mother is abusive to the child or even indifferent the child has emotional issues. Women as a group do not get along with him and neither does he get along with them. He will always have a mental block about receiving stuff. May be unable to accept kindness even. Outwardly a very strong and stable personality, but is crumbling inside emotionally. Can get depressive, addicted to alcohol etc easily. Cannot let down their guard or confide, have difficulty trusting. Cannot express their feelings because they do not understand what it is that they are feeling.

On a physical level, such a mother often comes with the following combinations. The house that the child lives in is not happy and is full of restricted suppressed energies. The vehicles, landed properties if owned become a source of irritation. Maternal side of the family, aunts and uncles can impose. The mother herself may be acutely or chronically ill, or working overtime, may be suppressed herself.

One of my clients had his moon in pisces in the 6th house and aspected by Saturn from the 12th house. He had a very committed hardworking professional mother who took care of everything around the house, helped other people too, outwardly the ideal mother. But there was not one drop of love in her interactions with her son, only a sense of duty. As per his horoscope around the age of 4yrs something so traumatic happened that he developed a personality split. It did not really affect his daily life so it was just that he was perceived to be a quiet boy who loved reading books. I met him when he was 38 years old. I drew his chart and also used some personal energy to look into his subconsciousness, where I felt that he was still a small child. His personal image of himself was also of a small boy wearing typical half-shorts and half-shirts. His mother then died and with that the restrictions on his emotional self started getting loose. He was also doing his sadhana very sincerely and within a month from her death somehow he realised that he had grown up, he was more hopeful. And now his personal image was that of a 16 year old young man. Not fully grown up yet but getting there. This man now understands the negative influence his mother has had on him, but by the grace of the Parameshwar, does not blame her after her death, rather is grateful to her for doing whatever she did as her duty.

Perspective, it all comes to that. And perspective comes only with maturity and empathy.

So now, check out your personal birth horoscope and the position of the moon and the lord of the 4th house. Try to critically analyze your relationship with your mom.

In the example above, the mother did not love because she herself was not loved by her mother, and was kept in a hostel away from her parents. But again that does not mean that her actions were justified. If she knew how it was to be not loved, she should have tried and learnt. That was her life lesson which she did not learn. She will be given the same set of circumstances in her next lives till she learns. But my client has learnt, he has a son himself and with his small boy he has tried to live his childhood again, trying to give him the love which he never received from his mother.

All the times, what a child really needs the most is being hugged and cuddled and being told by his parent that he is the most precious person in the universe. And remember children can see auras better so can always make out when a grown up is lying.

Just remember this, start working with energy only when you feel you have developed enough maturity and empathy to be able to view things dispassionately. We are not working with energy to settle scores, it is not a weapon against others.

The whole purpose of understanding all this is to disengage from the outer influences and to look inside our own selves. But you cannot disengage without first understanding them. So astrology teaches you to observe, understand and learn.

In my next post i will discuss negligent fathers.

 

Mother devils, astrologically possible?

Remedy for weak planets, Homa

In my several posts I have suggested that you yourself do a small homam (sacred fire ritual) at home. Now the ritualistic Brahmins will be shouting out that it is not possible and neither advisable for you to do a homam without experts/pandits. Then women should not do it and only married men can do it. So many rules, may be meaningful to some, but make no sense to me.

Fire/Agni is called Jaataveda/the one who knows everything. The fire we see with our eyes represents the internal fire and the light of Parabrahma. So naturally he knows everything and is the Jaataveda. In all Sanatan dharma rituals fire/agni is the witness. Even when you get married there are 2 conditions there should be a sun in the sky (daytime) and a fire lit in the homam kund who will be the witness to the marriage ceremony.

So if you are interested in doing a sacred fire ritual at home you will need 2 things, a clear heart and pure intention. There is nothing right and nothing wrong. When you are doing a homam you are invoking with the means of the fire that portion of the energies inside your own self. Divinity is not outside, it is right inside you, always remember this.

So the physical things you will need are, a copper kumbh/a pot, a copper pyramidal homa kund, a copper cup and spoon in the shape as per the pictures, cowdung cakes of Desi cows dung and ghee made of desi cow milk. (Desi cows are those Indian cattle breeds who have a prominent hump). Balance the homa kund on a couple of bricks so that the heat does not spoil the flooring. You will also need an asan to sit on. An asan at the very basic should be a layer of pure wool and a layer of pure silk on it.

homa- kund

Remedy for weak planets, Homa desi humped cow-dung cakes

Remedy for weak planets, Homa

The simplest homam that you can do yourself at home is of course the Agnihotra. But Agnihotra is very time specific and you are required to say the mantras and offer the rice and ghee exactly at the moment of sunrise and sunset. If you search online there are are several websites which give the details.

What I prescribe as a simple astrological remedy to do at home yourself is this very simple process with the sequence of mantras. You can do it anytime of the day, preferably in the morning or evening twilight, or you can do it anytime in the day or the night. Men can do it anytime, women should not do it on the 5 days of the monthly cycle. (The body is undergoing physical destruction internally and needs rest.)

  1. Dress, wear something of natural fibre, eg silk/ cotton which you wind around you. a dhoti, or a cloth wrapped around your waist. Women can wear a sari or if its too much trouble you can wear a cotton nightie like garment which does not pinch and you can cross your legs comfortably. Do not use it like a nightie then, keep it separate.
  2. Set up the asan facing north or east. In this have written on how to sit crosslegged or in a asan like siddhasan, sukahsan, padmasan etc.
  3. Set the homa kund carefully. Place 3-4 small pieces of cowdung dipped in ghee inside it. Keep the cup filled with ghee and spoon at your right hand. In the other kumbh/pot keep clean water at your left hand.
  4. Set alight a separate small piece of cowdung and use it to light your homam fire. While you are doing so say the Agni Gayatri, “Om Saptajihvaaya vidhmahe havyabhadraaya dhimahi tanno Agnih prachodayaat Om”. Then add a few drops of ghee with the spoon and let the fire get lit properly.
  5. Now take the pot of water in your left hand and pour a few drops in the palm of the right. Focus on the water and put in all your intention into that water. Your intention can be any one of the following, I want to be happy, healthy, rich, heal myself or anyone, get a wife, get children, be protected, increase my —- planets energy, just enjoy the homam, express my love to my god, express my love to myself, etc. Just remember your heart should be clear and your intention should be intense and pure. Now let the water drops fall to the ground at your right hand.
  6. Fold your palms and recite “OM”, three times and feel your body relax.
  7. Then recite the Ganapati Gayatri, “Om Ekadantaya Vidhmahe, Vakratundaya Dhimahi, Tanno Dantih Prachodayaat Om” for invoking the energies of Ganapati.
  8. Then this mantra is for invoking the Gods, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and the Nine grahas/planets, recite, “Om Brahma Murari Tripurantkari Bhanuh Shashih Bhumi Suto Budhah cha Guruh cha Shukrah Shani Rahu Ketavah Sarve Graha Shantikara bhavantu Om”.
  9. Then remember the Goddess Earth with love and gratitude, recite. “Om Samudra Vasane Devi, Parvatah Stana Mandale Vishnupatni Namastubhyam Paada Sparsham Kshamasva May Om”.
  10. Finally “Om Guruh Brahma Guruh Vishnu Guruh Devo Maheshwara Guruh Saakshat Para Brahma Tasmai Shree Gurave Namaha Om”. In this mantra you are acknowledging the Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, and the pure Parabrahma as your Guru. None other. And bowing to that Supreme consciousness, the Universal energy. Here you are asking for divine inspiration and acknowledging that Parabrahma itself is your Guru. Always remember this, your Ultimate Guru is the Parabrahma none other. And this exists within you not outside anywhere.

Thus you have finished the preparatory phase. Now for the mantra phase where you will actually be invoking the energies of the mantra. This will vary as per the mantra you are using.

  1. Example. Homam for Surya, on a Sunday after the above mantras recite the Surya gayatri once, “Om Bhaskaraya Vidhmahe Divakaraya Dheemahi Tanno Suryah Prachodayat Om”.
  2. Then recite the surya beej mantra 108 times, “Om hraang hreeng hraung sah suryaya swaha”. At the swaha, use the spoon to drop a drop of ghee into the fire. To count to 108, use beads which you will count with the left hand.

This was the mantra-ahuti phase where you have given 108 drops of ghee to the conscious energy of the fire. You have repeated the mantra with ‘swaha’ at its end 108 times. Now you will conclude the Homa like this.

  1. After you finish the 108 repetitions, recite “Om” once.
  2. Recite “Om Shri Paradevata arpanmastu Om”
  3. Then sit in an attitude of contemplation, breathe slowly, relax, in front of the fire till it extinguishes naturally. Focus on the fire and draw its energies inside you. With these mantras you have generated a huge amount of energy, now pull it inside you and absorb it.
  4. After the fire extinguishes and the embers cool, put a pinch of that ash/Vibhuti on your forehead and top of head. Eat a pinch too.
  5. After it cools down to room temperature you can store it in a covered glass bowl and use it whenever you want to. It is Vibhuti now, and you yourself have made it. It is your personal energy infused with mantras and the power of the fire. You should use it in your energy work. Its energy will last for about 15days.

For the other grahas the process is same with the following mantras for the second part.

Moon – Monday – Om Padmadhwajaya Vidmahe Haemaroopaya Dheemahi Tanno Somah Prachodayat is the invocation Gayatri and the mantra to recite 108 times is Om” – “Om shraang shreeng shroung sah chandraya swaha”

Mars – Tuesday – Om Veeradhwajaya Vidmahe Vighnahasthaya Dheemahi Tanno Bhaumah Prachodayat Om” is the invocation Gayatri and the mantra to recite 108 times is  “Om kraang kreeng kraung sah mangalaya swaha”

Rahu – Tuesday – “Om Nagadhwajaya Vidmahe Padma Hastaya Dheemahi Tanno Rahuh Prachodayat Om” is the invocation Gayatri and the mantra to recite 108 times is  – “Om bhraang bhreeng bhraoung sah Rahave swaha”

Mercury – Wednesday – Om Gajadhwajaya Vidmahe Shuka Hastaya Dheemahi Tanno Budha Prachodayat Om” is the invocation Gayatri and the mantra to recite 108 times is – “O braang, breeng broung sah budhayah swaha”

Jupiter – thursday – Om Vrishabhadhwajaya Vidmahe Ghrini Hastaya Dheemahi Tanno Guru Prachodayat Om” is the invocation Gayatri and the mantra to recite 108 times is  – “Om graang greeng groung sah gurave swaha”

Venus – Om Ashwadhwajaya Vidmahe Dhanur Hastaya Dheemahi Tanno Shukrah Prachodayat Om” is the invocation Gayatri and the mantra to recite 108 times is – Om draang dreeng droung sah shukraya swaha”

Saturn – Saturday – “Om Kakahdhwajaya Vidmahe Khadga Hastaya Dheemahi Tanno Mandah Prachodayat Om” is the invocation Gayatri and the mantra to recite 108 times is Om praang preeng proung sah Shanisharaya swaha”

Ketu – Saturday – Om Ashwadhwajaya Vidmahe Shoola Hastaya Dheemahi Tanno Ketuh Prachodayat Om” is the invocation Gayatri and the mantra to recite 108 times is  – “Om sraang sreeng sroung sah ketave swaha”

This was a rather technical post, but well worth my and your time too if you ever decide to do it.

 

Vivah Sanskar as per Vedic Astrology Part 1

How deep is your love, 5th / 7th houses

As deep as your horoscope, I think!

The word “Love” has fired the minds of generations of poets, artists, singers, painters, dancers. We have songs and dramas set on the theme of undying love, love at first sight, star crossed lovers, love ending in tragedy, passionate love, platonic love and so on.

Astrologically love though is very different. There are two houses in the horoscope, the 5th and the 7th which play an important role in deciding our “love life”.

Today there is a fashion for young men and women fall in and out of love in a snap. This is in the domain of the 5th house of the horoscope. This emotion is not love, but more properly infatuation, a crush. The 5th house is the house of expressing creativity. The most creative emotion for a particular age group is then “falling in love. And we have our TV shows and popular culture to blame in part. Going out for a movie and a dinner then engaging in physical relations is now considered to be love, where it could in fact be lust. It is your 5th house working. This is more self-centered and both concentrate on their personal satisfaction.

Then we have the 7th house of the horoscope which determines the partnerships in your life. The most important one is obviously that of the life partner. So 7th house is also the house of marriage. The instant you and your husband/wife go around the marriage homam fire seven times with the intention of marriage this house gets operational. Now you and your husband/wife are bound deeply with each others karma. Both your 7th house placements and the placements of Venus, Jupiter and Mars now start affecting each other. If in his horoscope the 7th house lord is placed in his 12th house, the health of the woman who has married him will suffer irrespective of how strong her own horoscope is. If her own horoscope is well balanced the diseases will be mild but still she cannot escape the influence of his horoscope. On the other hand if some woman’s 7th house lord is placed in her 11th house, whoever marries her will be a very lucky man. His luck and fortunes will start rising spectacularly after the marriage.

How deep is your love, 5th / 7th houses

We Indians call the wife “Dharmapatni” and the husband “Dharmapati”. It means the wife/husband who helps us in carrying out our actions as per the Dharma. Now Dharma means a lot of things but basically it is about completing our karmic debts in a manner acceptable to our own conscience/antaratma.

The shift of karma after marriage can be so intense that sometimes the the 9th divisional chart can get more important than the main birth chart, completely changing the individual. Sometimes you get to see this, after marriage some persons change 180degrees, get more serious, completely wrapped up in the husbands family, etc it is rare now but yes if you observe there are examples.

So it is very important to remember that your girlfriend/boyfriend is your 5th house and your wife/husband is the 7th house of the horoscope. For example, suppose your 5th house is in a very good shape and you get the girlfriend of your dreams, so you date for a bit then get married but then everything collapses! Why? You blame each other and everyone around you, but the real reason is in the horoscope. The 7th house was afflicted with malefic influences. You blame her that she changed after marriage! She did not, the relationship and the factors controlling that relationship changed from a well placed 5th house to a 7th house under malefic influence.

Another curious thing, suppose he has a nicely balanced 7th house but she has a 7th affected by malefic influences. So now both have different perceptions regarding their marriage. He feels that his wife is the best thing that ever happened to him and she utterly dislikes her married life and if extreme may get into extramarital affairs or file for divorce. And he is all unknowing and happy with her. You do see such examples around you. These are all the horoscope combinations at work.

So now, If your 7th house has problems, not get married forever? No, not marrying is not acceptable, as you miss having a life partner who can actively help you complete your karma. And you too help her. Or then there are situations, after getting married you both cannot adapt to the changes. So for such cases, there are astrological remedies prescribed. The easiest one is to recite the Srisukta. (the first 16 verses are the srisukta)

But there is one category of individual for whom not getting married is allowed. Those horoscopes with very potent interactions of Ketu, Shukra, Bruhaspati, where negligible pending karma is indicated. These individuals get ‘married’ to their deity/philosophy/spiritual practice. These individuals from a very young age display signs of being indifferent to worldly attachments and may even take sanyas or live their lives in deep solitude and active meditation/dhyan. These horoscopes have the possibility of moksha in them.

For all the rest of us, we have to go through the highs and lows of the 7th house with our life partner. And your regular practice of Srisukta. May Shri Laxmi bless your marriage.

And finally as Doctor Who says, “Love”, Love is not an emotion, Love is a promise!”
