    Pranaam Madam,
    Sorry for the additional second query Madam this week. This question has been there in my mind for many years. My namakaran was done randomly, without regard for my nakshatra, and I got thankfully reminded of my naming incongruence recently.

    Even as a child, with no apparent reason, I was never happy with my name, always felt a disconnect. No one made fun of my name or anything, but I never liked hearing my name much. I am actually surprised now, and I can’t articulate why even as a child when I was not very knowledgeable, I instinctively was disconnected from my name. I am in my mid thirties, I can still change it if I want to, with all the paperwork…

    But in the event, I do make that decision, can I get actually get a namakaranam done ritualistically at least? Or is it too late?

    Best regards and sincere wishes and gratitude as always,

    Hi Tejaswiniji

    A question regarding Yugas and the ascension and decline cycles. Is it cyclic in nature I.e Sat-Treta-Dvapar-Kali and repetition of the same order or is it Sat-Treta-Dvapar-Kali-Kali-Dvapar-Treta-Sat ?

    I think Yukteshwar Giri had proposed the second one, a pendulum like ascension and decline nature, based on a theory that our Sun is actually a two star system.

    Is this true ? Also does time within each yuga also behaves like a fractal . I.e, yuga within a yuga.
    Does the year 2012 or 2020 have any special significance based on the above theory?

    Which are the texts that explain the nature of time and yuga ?



    • astrologerbydefault December 15, 2021 / 6:19 pm

      Hi there
      this has never interested me, the exact time, years etc of the yug level, so many billions of human years! its fascinating but it has no practical value for me as my human lifetime is limited to max 120 yrs.

      from my perspective. Time is just one instant, Mahakaal, or the Bindu. the 10 Dasha Mahavidyas are the 10 dimensions of apparent Space created for Lila by Devi Mahamaya. change your perspective even a bit, and the Time seems different coz the effect of the 10 dimensions of space. but keep still and focus and you realise that there is just this one present moment.

    Hello Tejaswini ji

    I am trying to do the daana for mercury as you have mentioned in the post for the same.
    I am not sure if I am doing it correctly and don’t want to reduce the efficacy of the same hence asking below questions

    1) The shells don’t burn like other items e.g. wood/ paper. So, should just heat them till they become blackish and somewhat brittle?
    2) Can i repeat the daana again OR it is allowed one time only?

    Also, if I do the daana for all the planets ( irrespective of their placement in the horoscope), it wont give any side effects right?

    thank you


    • astrologerbydefault December 15, 2021 / 6:23 pm

      Hi there
      they wont burn completely, but thats ok

      you can repeat

      why would you do so? fix what you need to fix.

      or if you really want to do so, then better use the intention that you are doing it for your happiness and express your gratitude to them

    I have read all of the posts on dreams and they have been very insightful. But I still have trouble interpreting my own.

    I have a reoccurring dream situation involving a man who in my dreams I have: married, followed around, been in places looking for him, find him and he either doesnt know me or ignores me, etc. Its always the same man and always the same feeling of unrequited love- even in the dreams where we are married.Its quite hurtful and this is been going on for over a year now. I am not sure how to resolve these energies or even how to interpret the dreams- is this something that has already happened, or will happen. I dont know this man in real life and am single.

    Do you have any advice for what can I do to obtain more clarity or best direct/channelize the energies to resolve this?

    Dear Madam,

    First and foremost, I would like to thank and bow to you for sharing all these priceless knowledge. Since young, i have been having dreams of places, gods and warnings, that i honestly feel like there are other beings communicating with me through my dreams. I have found some clarity from your posts.I live in Malaysia & there aren’t many good astrologers here. Even if there is, most are driven by monetary gain. Hence, i have taken an interest to study astrology on my own.

    Of late, i have been examining my 9year old son’s chart and i found 5 planets ( ju,Ke, Ve,Sun,Me) concentrated in the 12th house. Ascendant is Gemini with Mars 3rd house, Sa & Mo in the 4th and Rahu in 6th.

    I have read your post on newborns with many planets in 12th. No astrologer has given me any clue and i find it difficult to decipher his chart. I do know that you do not do anymore reading but could you help me with some clues? Do you know of any astrologer that i could consult (online)?

    Apart from that, I feel very blessed to have come across your blog and have shared your posts with my family as well.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Tejaswiniji

    What is the significance of dreadlocks?
    There are some sanyasis who shave off the hair, but some others who develop the jataa.

    Isn’t a dreadlock sometimes unhealthy not to mention unhygienic?

    There are many women in Maharashtra too who don’t cut the dreadlocks if they happen to develop , citing reasons that, it’s Devi who resides in them or something like that.

    And on the other extreme, I have also heard stories about spirits possessing the individual who suddenly develops dreadlocks.

    Please enlighten.



    • astrologerbydefault December 16, 2021 / 6:40 pm

      Hi there
      dreadlocks may be dirty and unhygenic but they are not Jata.

      Jata are different.
      For sanyasis to remove hair completely or not bother about them or turn them into a Jata, it depends on which deity they are following.
      upasaks of a Sagun deity will generally keep long hair or and turn them into Jata. it helps channelise energy as hair are extensions of the mind.
      people who get deities in them also might keep Jata. some of these people can never cut hair because of the avtar within them, so Jata is the only option
      jata are not randomly grown hair, they are made like that with specific oils etc put into them. it takes time to grow them and maintain them.

      even the Shika is technically a Jata, it is maintained at a very specific point on the head and the rest of head is shaved off. oil is put in it and its tied in a specific shape. it can never be cut.

    Hi Mam

    In few of your posts you had mentioned that tantriks or perhaps people can “catch spirits ” as slaves. Can you please shed light on how can anyone really do that. Not challenging what you meant but I really do not understand as Im really not superstitious.

    Not planning at all to do so but how is it at all possible logically is what I’m trying to understand. What is it that is actually chanted or said to capture them. Please can you open up the topic a bit more. Out of all your posts I enjoy the esoteric /occult ones the most therefore I try my best to understand fully what/how you meant something.

    Thank you
    Your avid reader.

    Namaste Tejaswini ji,

    I discovered your website while I was looking into karmic healing.

    I am really sorry for writing a long message, but I felt like I need to give you the background.

    Last year my father passed away after a very brief suffering. By God’s grace I was able to spend one good month with him and my mother before that. Once we new his time was near, he and my mother asked me to take care of everything for them. I have done everything possible from my end and my husband has been very supportive. I also convinced my mother to stay with my younger brother as I did not want her to live alone. I love my mother dearly but I live in a different country where it is not possible to bring my mother to live permanently with us. She visits us.

    I have loved my younger brother all my life. But the relationship between us has been strained since he got married.

    But soon after my father’s passing, my brother and his wife attacked me, my husband and my young son after getting to know that I have been entrusted with all my parents affairs including finance, and asked me to never return as I no longer have a father and mother lives with him. According to him, I am an orphan.

    In every interaction I tried to have with him, he and his wife have attacked me.

    I am hurt very deeply and I know for sure that our relationship has reached a point of no return from his end. I can no longer take this hurt.

    I came across the vidhi of burning hair and nail in this article.

    Can it be done to break the bond with my brother even though my mother is alive and I love her?

    I sincerely hope to find a way to recover from this.



      • Veenapani December 18, 2021 / 3:28 pm

        Namaste Tejaswini ji,

        Thank you for your prompt reply. I read the forgiveness article.

        You are absolutely right. I took a few minutes today morning to contemplate and I just realized that I am holding heavy burning stones that look like lava. Each of those stones of hurt and dejection burn bright and I am all grey and miserable buried under the weight and heat.

        I am surrounded by people who love me deeply. To be honest my life is good. But I did this to myself. I want to be bright and blissful. I want to be peaceful.

        Many thanks to you. Now I will do my part.



      • Hayls December 18, 2021 / 11:22 pm


        Just curious- can there be a karmic repercussion of breaking bonds? If the karma between the individuals is not yet complete, is there a way to balance the karma and break the bond so the bond does not go on in future lives?


      • astrologerbydefault December 19, 2021 / 10:27 am

        Hi there
        Mantra and Daana will have to b done. Ie something to support the mind and some way of giving away the imbalance.
        Karmic bonds r energy. If u supply positive energy to it then the negativity can b reduced. The remaining minor pain will b experienced in dream states.
        Completely destroyed only if it was very little karma to begin with.

    Hi mam,

    Randomly in the middle of the night ( ~ 5am), I will wake up feeling like the third eye area is extremely active ( almost like a suction feeling). This happens sporadically and I havent seen any patterns in planetary placements on the nights this happens. Initially, i felt like i was able to ask my higher self questions during these times and i would see answers but now its all blank- i see nothing. It almost just feels like another portal opened up but I am clueless as to what to do. Is this something that you are aware of happening? And if so, what should I do during these times?

    My current daily spiritual practices is navavarna mantra, sapta shloki, and sri sukta. I also listen to the entire saptshati and vishnu sahastranam a few times per week.

    Many thanks

    This is all so so interesting.. 😍 thank you thank you so much 🤗🙏🏻

    And mam suddenly got this doubt after seeing today’s date.. tomorrow December 22 so Sun is going to change his direction towards North according to drik siddhnath..
    Once I read somewhere on your blog mam.. actually this year only i came to know actual Uttarayana punyakal and makar Sankramana are different and not happening on the same date through my Jyotish guru.. December 21 and June 21 Uttarayan and Dakshinayan happening..

    But now I opened the drink panchang app and I found that tomorrow is Uttarayan and today is Dakshinayan only.. and what’s my doubt is, we usually do Daana for ancestors on Uttarayan Makara Sankramana punya kal, now tomorrow what to do ? How to utilise this auspicious day ? At what time(punya-kal) we do Daana for ancestors ? I couldn’t find any specific time on drik panchang app like I found something like this Uttarayan Punyakal today at 1:30 PM to sunset in a local panchang book..

    Kindly when you have time could please shed some light on this topic mam.. would love to hear your perception mam💗🤩 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

    • astrologerbydefault December 21, 2021 / 7:22 pm

      Hi there
      there a lot of math involved in this. but the concept is this.
      the earth and the solar system itself is moving with respect to the fixed stars/nakshatra in the skies.
      so the makar sankranti does not coincide with the Uttarayan always. it moves ahead ie can go upto Kumbh sankranti or upto Dhanu sankranti. right now it is approaching dhanu sankranti.
      but as per some rule, i think from the Suryasiddhant, if the uttarayan slips below the Makar sankranti it is approximated to the makar sankranti.

      also think on the Dakshinayan. when is it supposed to happen and when does it happen.
      so if you want to do homa for Uttarayan or Dakshinayan you must do these on these days only as per their punya kaal. Today Uttarayana starts at 2nd pada of Moola.

      in my blog i do not refer to makar sankranti as ‘uttarayan’. but an auspicious Makar sankranti ensures an auspicious new year in the following chaitra, so its immense value for Jyotishis.

Please can you elaborate on this. Reason is that my moon is in 12th House (cancer moon) and last year I had visitation dreams.

    Here , “You are no longer an equal partner in any relationship as your personal identity has started dematerialising. You have entered your own depth which this Sun has illuminated.”

    Mam , can you help me understand this statement ?

    I feel & resonate with it , its essence.
    I deeply care about others yet I am sort of detached. I wish to understand it’s effect on my relationships .

    Why is not equal ? I ask this.

    Is it because since the sense of ‘ I’ is inwardly focused , that the personality doesn’t find interest in the transitory aspects of earthly reality . And thus cannot be as interested in social , emotional validation as others seek.


    Is it because since the sense of ” I” starts dissolving , that it can see people for who they are , understand them , and pray & genuinely wish the best for everyone without any agenda.
    But to expect it of others who have yet not discovered that the true treasure lies within leads to disillusionment.

    Mam , can you share your perception , the insight that led to the above statement in the article ? It will help me to make peace with it.

    I am not the personality. But only by understanding , one can move beyond it. 🙃❇️

      Hi there
      read more about the esoteric nature of the 4th house. its the first one in the moksh trikon, the nadir of the subconscious, the roots of your personality so as to say.
      having the sun here means that your deepest depths are illuminated. you are so beautiful on the inside and now are aware of this fact.
      you are simply not bothered about any relationship now, you cannot respond if others demand this of you. as you are now aware of the underlying common energy that animates everyone. you are more.

        Namaste Tejaswini Ji,

        Being a cancer ascendent, in my normal D1 chart Sun with combust Mars is in 5 th house, but in Bhav chalit both of them shift to 4 th house. So what placement should be actually considered.

        Also, I wanted to ask, that in case at 6th month of pregnancy if sudden premature, still birth of child happens, then what should be done for the peace of soul of the kid.

        Although, I consider death and birth to be prewritten by Almighty himself, but what need to be really done, in case if someone tells that there was a huge evil eye on mother which caused the incident.

        Gratitude and Regards

        bhav chalit

        the soul is a part of the pitru, do the tarpan with the rest of them on the sarvapitri.
        more importantly do some pujas for the father/mother so tht they can have a proper baby next time.

        thts why we have 1 sanskar before conception and 2 more during pregnancy to avoid these type of things. plus family specific dos and donts to ensure baby is born safely.
        but ‘modern’ people think our highly systematic and deep Sanatan Dharma to be superstition

    Madam, has multiple surya siddhant copies, I don’t know which translation to pick . If at all there is a version/translation of the Surya Siddhant that you feel could be largely accurate, could you please share the information of that copy? Again, only if it is convenient for you Madam. I humbly feel it would be very useful for us readers.

    Thanks again Madam and Sincere regards and prayers as always,

      Hi there
      its all high level math mostly,
      the first translation is by burgess.
      but i prefer the one edited by gangooly, its there on archive. and there are several more
      you can read whichever edition you like, it will be just to gain an insight into the mind of the Seer who first wrote the Siddhanta.

    Dear Ma’am,
    I would like to get your insight on this. Some of my elders have recommended to put salt around the corners of the houses and rooms. I have been told that if the salt is melting, it means there are negative energies around. Is this true?
    Is it recommended to keep salt at the corners of the house and rooms? When should I replace these salts?
    Please advice. Thank you very much for all your posts and advices.

      Hi there
      where i live the humidity is so high in the 3-4 monsoon months that if i leave my himalayan salt lamp switched off for a day it starts oozing salt water.
      salt becomes liquid if there is high humidity.

      i have written about salt

      you can do whatever you wnt with it.
      eg put small bowlfuls under your bed, corners of the room, doorways, windowsills, etc. keep them for max 1 week then change the salt
      always dispose the old salt in water.

    This may seem like a request for a personal reading. It is not. The answer would be applicable to many.

    We had some high level traumatic events happen in 2 of our sons’ families. Based on astrologers’ advice I am doing some mantra chanting. these were given based on my son’s and my grandson’s chart.

    Questions are 2:

    I. am doing this for them; should the mantras have been given based on my horoscope?

    2. Is there such a thing as doing too many things that might contra indicate each other?

    Here is what I am doing right now – started 4 days ago:

    AM – I am doing mantra anusthan for Budha with the Beej mantra – doing 8 malas each day for 11 days

    Ganesha mantra – om shreem hreem kleem glaum gum ganapathayey varavarada sarvajanam mey vashamaanaya svaha – 108 times – 1 mala

    Gayathri mantra – 1 mala


    Om Shreem hreem kreem dum durgayai svaha – 1 mala

    Om Namah Shivaya – 1 mala

    Markatesha mahothsaha Sarvashoka vinashana
    Shatroon samhara mam raksta shriyam daapaya mey prabho – 1 mala

    I would appreciate a reply from you.

    Thank you in Advance

      1. As a grandmother / mother you can do mantra jaap fr ur grandson/ son.
      It will b as per their charts not urs.
      It would b even better if they also do something at their levels
      2. No.
      Just ensure that the sankalps fr the various mantras etc are not contradicting each other

    Been wondering about these few things astrologically.

    1. Say a person has died…but decades later there are discoveries about him….regardless of whether it is honour or can the fortunes of a deceased person’s name change so precisely at one juncture decades after his demise? (there are a lot of discoveries being unearthed at the moment about India’s independence…..)

    2. Another baffling story I have encountered….the foetus was poisoned/killed by jealous relatives who were enemies in past lives. Wouldn’t that mean that at astral levels this karma is going on…prior to manifested birth chart.

    Jyotish is so deep and fascinating. Lenses to the unknown.


  22. Vyjayanti January 1, 2022 / 6:37 pm

    A third question related to invasions of Bharat.

    When the invaders killed sadhus…including dandi swamis…what becomes of the danda? I feel a lot has been stolen, the voltage of the danda…can be used by invaders?

    and last but not least,

    I can’t wait for India to be renamed as Bharat so that the chart of the nation will be accordingly set to auspicious timings.


    • astrologerbydefault January 1, 2022 / 6:53 pm

      Hi there
      any object used by a Atmajnyani Mahapurush, eg a Dandi or Jaap mala or Asan or even shawls clothes etc become an object of power in itself.
      of course it can be used. his genuine disciples will definitely use it, ie draw his energy from it.

      if someone attempts to use it for malicious purposes then its his own negative karma that he is creating.

      Personally i would not like to touch Dandi or items used in sadhana by unknown Yogis or Sadhus.

    Hi Tejaswiniji

    Two questions.

    1. Moon transiting to Ketu and there onwards into the Kaal Sarpa axis since Dec 31st.

    Can the effect of Ketu + Moon be interpreted as,
    – No mind state , rather mind being less volatile and more focused? And mind being unaffected and detached by external turbulent situations?

    – Is this mental focus or detachment only specific to Ketu + Scorpio ?

    – Or Will this state be applicable only for Ketu + Moon transit, or will it apply throughout Moon’s journey through the kaal sarpa axis until 15th Jan ?

    2. Amavasya and it’s effect on Mental issues.
    I have a relative of mine who is suffering from an old age mental disorder. I observed that the approx. time during the start of amavasya yesterday evening , he started behaving more eccentric than normal. Is the effect of Moon transits so immediate and explicit ?

    Pranams Tejaswini,

    It is slowly starting to dawn on me (pun intended) that the Navagraha that I have ‘bound’ to earth through my limited intellect is actually much more layered and grand.

    The pitrs are in time and karma, the devatas are in time and karma, the astral bodies are also in time and karma.

    That means the jurisdication of the Navagraha is multi layered, multi dimensional…

    The Sun…in the Gayatri Mantra…Om Bhuh. Bhuvah, Suvah, Janah, Mahah, Tapah, Satyam….
    ……must be with His entire planetary team.

    I’m so awed by the universe I live in.


  28. Renu January 2, 2022 / 10:06 pm

    Thank you so much for your recent posts. I followed your guidelines for the black thread protection today and tied a thread on my right ankle.

    Having just read your post on Varahi – what if you’re already initiated into MahaVarahi mantra? I am chanting it as part of my daily mantra sadhana and was wondering how I can use it outside of my sadhana, if needed. Is Varahi mantra only advisable for psychic attacks? It sounds like she may be too powerful to call on for minor problems?

    I sometimes feel like I raise my energy after an hour of sadhana but if someone visits me or is living with me and they start bringing up their problems, or are just simply feeling depressed, they drain my positivity. What is a good way to maintain one’s energetic boundaries? Is the black thread a good protection in that situation? Or a mantra? I believe I’m an empath. I do my daily sadhana but feel like energy vampires take away at least some of that energy.

    If I do tarpanam myself (Mahaganapati and Bala Tripura) is it okay to share the tirtham with other people? Does the tirtham have to be freshly charged to reap benefits or can it stay charged for a few hours or days? Is there any reason I should not share tirtham charged with positive mantras?

    Finally, in your post on Varahi Devi you say there is no divorce and one of the people have to physically exit, do you mean death? What is the dharmic way of living if one spouse decides to leave/divorce but the other truly believes marriage is for life despite having a legal divorce decree in hand?


    • astrologerbydefault January 3, 2022 / 8:57 am

      Hi there
      If u r doing her Sadhana and her Mantra ask this to the Guru who has given u the initiation.

      Tirtha Vibhuti prasadam flower mala etc will stay good fr at least 15 days. Or more too if the puja / yajnya was more powerful.
      Eg Ganga jal or Mansarovar jal or Jal frm Devi Kamakhya etc always retain power.

      There are usually 1 or sometimes more than 1 marriage events in life.
      Shakti mohan singh book on kaal chakra dasha has a useful chapter on ‘marriage events’. Read it if u want to.
      Its an eye opener on how the horoscope can create a ‘marriage event’ more planets involved stronger it will b.
      Its all about intention. If u strongly intend tht the bond breaks it will become very weak. ie will not affect u much in routine life with ur 2nd spouse. Marrying several times is not an issue. You can.
      But ultimately it is a sanskar, a life time thing, so the energy generated with every marriage you get into will finally break only with the end of physical body.

    Hi Tejaswiniji

    Couple of questions

    1. In our family and our community (South), we don’t check the kundali of a new born baby. We wait for 5 years only after which the kundali is charted. Until then only the birth Nakshatra, is calculated.
    Is this a common practice?

    2. Based of one of your comments on Sanyasi performing Antyeshti to cut cords with their family. What’s the definition of a sanyasi ? Can a person man / woman be called one if they are simply single ? One of my uncles was a spinster , bramhachari, but didn’t really do much of sadhana. But followed some basic religious practices , temple visits, prayers etc.
    He passed away recently and his brother performed his antyeshyi. But like you mentioned, for a sanyasi, there’s no need for the recurring tarpans etc. Would it apply to this case?



    • astrologerbydefault January 6, 2022 / 6:48 pm

      Hi there
      I am from Dakshin and live in Uttar. But Bharat is one Bharatvarsha, one Aryavart.
      all practices are more or less the same. 5days 12days, 21days does it matter?
      this artificial divide of Dakshin and Uttar has stopped all of us from realising the magnificence that Aryavarta Bharatvarsha really is.

      in my personal opinion one must be aware of the chart as soon as possible. if any corrective actions are needed they can be arranged for in time, the earlier the better.
      today 20% births in Bharat are by C section. i think most of them are done after checking the possible horoscopes.

      i think i have given the ‘definition of a Sanyasi’ in that comment itself?
      Vidhivat Sanyas, leaving the society, doing the self – Anteyshthi, extinguishing the Agni? is the meaning of these words not clear enough?
      the terrible intention that Sanyas is?
      the Sanyasi is the one who carries his own ‘Anteyshti Agni’ within him always?

      astrologically it is the power of Shani which takes the Sanyasi to his/her internal Surya?

      not getting married is not the same as a ‘brahmachari’! it is simply ‘avivahit’
      fr avivahit people, the brother and the sons of the brother are responsible for giving tarpan etc.

        “astrologically it is the power of Shani which takes the Sanyasi to his/her internal Surya?”

        This line written in your comment above really got me. Staggering.

        I have tried to re-read the posts on Saturn. My understanding of Saturn is that He is the ultimate purifier of all karmic files blocking spiritual evolution….burning which the soul finally faces its own Sun.

        Astrologically the chart of a Sannyasi is a paradox. He is dead yet alive. Dead to the karma of his birth chart but alive on another level where Rahu-Ketu joins and Saturn connects him to the Sahasra Chakra.

        Is this understanding correct?


      • astrologerbydefault January 11, 2022 / 3:43 pm

        Hi there
        he is the ‘physical creator’ mooladhar who takes us to the ‘divine creator’ shasrara. to achieve anything of any sort a strong and favourable Bhagwan Shani is essential. i really do not understand why everyone is scared of him!
        to me he is so utterly beautiful, captivating, holding me as a father would hold an infant, so loving. deep blue skin, utterly beautiful face, golden pitambar, gold and gems adorning him, on his massive throne. his face is so utterly utterly kind.

        the blue day skies and the jet black blue night skies, just like blue sapphires, we all live on this earth by his krupa. he provides the base from which we make our attempt at self-realisation.

        fr the Sanyasi there is no meaning for the words ‘alive’ ‘dead’. he is trying to achieve that place which is neither ‘alive’ nor ‘dead’, ie that state where no duality exists. he is tied to the body/mind at some level but the travails of the body/mind have no meaning to him, he is beyond all that. it does not make any deep or significant impression on him

        the most terrifying video that am sure all of us have seen is the one where the Sadhu Maharajs were physically murdered by the mob in Palghar. terrifying in the sense tht the mob and everyone who was involved in this have ensured a place for themselves in Timirandha and they did not even realise it.
        only once i saw my Guru tell someone that he would be a ‘shila for infinite time’, not angry but the energy! and the idiot rather than asking for forgiveness was smiling.
        A Sanyasi is not of this Martyalok, nor of the Pitrlok, he does not ‘belong’ anywhere. he carries his own Anteysthi agni all the time within him. he has committed himself to the Advaita.
        If you cannot respect him, then do not disrespect him either.

        he will merge all the chakras, including the sahasrara into the Bindu and go beyond it to find himself.
        He is very very different, pujaniya.

    Namaskaram Tejaswiniji.

    Trying to make sense of the idea of parallel universe. Purely philosophical level as that is the only level available to me at this moment….

    – parallel universes = parallel realities.

    – jiva shristi is self-absorbed in its own cocoon/shristi, therefore cannot fathom other shristis.

    – ishwar shristi is infinite, non-linear even.

    – science (which doesn’t really interest me to be honest) is now starting to call the universe as multiverse. “We live in a multiverse, not a Universe.”

    – dimensions of realities bends as per the capacity of the tapas.

    For a jiva.. transgressing its own shristi to parallel shristis? How? Why? Karma requires it? Obviously.

    We have made a 3D, 4D, 5D, 100D into a 2D world and therefore this whole concept collapses.

    Alpa buddhi. Trying to grasp parallel universe…when I can’t even understand my immediate universe.

    Pardon my rambling. I saw your comment elsewhere about parallel lives and have not stopped thinking about it….🙏

      Hi there
      will give a very simplistic example which might make things more clear
      1. you are standing in a forest, (i live in the himalaya so a forest is just 1km from where i live.)
      so the trees, leaves, light rays etc make a specific pattern before you.
      2. you move one step to the right, the look of the entire forest changes. now the trees, leaves sunrays etc make a completely different pattern.
      3. you move in time, ie close your eyes and open them after 1hr. now the play of light etc again has changed. its a ‘different looking’ forest.
      but you are the same. just changing your position/perspective.
      these are the parallel universes. you exist in all those scenes 1 2 3 but you are aware of only one of these at a time.

      was this mind boggling enough?

      so let’s make it even more

      the forest ie the land is time, Mahakaal, (it is only one Moment, the non dual intelligence)
      the trees are the 10 Mahavidya (the 10 intelligences of the 10 directions)

      1 how the trees seem to be different from the forest
      2 change at the slightest change in perspective
      3 but are produced by the forest

      You, the Jivatma, is looking at the trees
      The Guru is trying to make you to focus on the forest/land

    I was reading your articles on karma from the ancestors ( i will be getting tarpan done at the end of the month and was rereading to see if anything additional needs to be done). The article notes that signs of imbalance include snake dreams ( i understand this) and Kaal sarp in charts of family members. But the kaal sarp articles did not mention anything about the ancestors? Can you please clarify the connection? Is kaal sarp in one’s chart always indicative of karma due to ancestors? And is there a reason this karmic debt manifests as kaal sarp in the chart?

    Also, if the karmic imbalance is deep rooted ( i.e. kaal sarp and a clear pitra dosh in D60 chart), is there a guideline for how many times we might need to do the tarpan or is there a way to know when the karma is complete?

    Thank you!


    • astrologerbydefault January 6, 2022 / 11:01 pm

      Hi there
      might have missed writing it,
      coz i remember i was writing those posts for someone who wanted to know more on how to use the kaal sarpa energy.

      actually anything to do with the nodes has a greater chance of being connected to ancestors and/or past lives and both are interconnected.

      two things have to match for you to take birth in a family.
      1. the ancestors do some deeds
      2. you do some deeds
      when both types of deeds match only then you take birth in that lineage.
      eg if the ancestors have accumulated merit only then do they get meritorious descendants
      and if you have done meritorious deeds only then you get born in a family where the ancestors have done merit to deserve you.
      and likewise.

      so ur past life deeds and your ancestors deeds have to match.

      actually whn you give tarpan to them, you are actually balancing your own past life deeds in some way or the other

      it is done every year on Sarvapitri / Mahalaya amavasya.

        We typically do sharad offerings every year during that Sarvapitri time period, but there have been many dreams recently so will try to do a tarpan on the next amavasya to see if it helps. Is it still helpful if not done during Sarvapitri period? We are in the west so unfortunately, feeding ravens and some of the other options mentioned in your article are not available here.

        The concept of karmic debt is so mind boggling. So if for example the grandfather didnt do the proper last rites for the great grandfather ( his father), the descendents suffer. And they get upset thinking ‘why are we suffering for our grandfather’s mistakes’ but it sounds like the reality is that the descendents themselves in some past life also didnt do last rites properly and that is the reason for whatvever they are experiencing now? Is this the logic?

        For everyone in the western world where bodies are buried..they must all be suffering from this?

        Hi there
        U can. It will help. Fr minor dreams giving Go gras is also good. In fact some clans/ Gotra do tarpan every amavasya.

        Yes. Ultimately everything u do first helps ur own self.

        Not just they. The entire earth.
        8 billion humans. Only 1.2 billion Hindus. Of these maybe 1 billion will get anteyshthi.
        The rest r stuck here. The ‘negative energy’ tht people talk is nothing but these stuck jivatma. It will keep on increasing.

        That is quite sad. Especially because most of these people just have no idea and are quite sincerely just following what is being taught in their respective religions.

        And thank you! Will look into if giving Go gras is an option near me.

    Wanted to share one last (personal) thing about this Ram Setu discussion that you initiated for us.

    I wondered at the timing of this….of having completed Sundara Kandam Parayanam on 2nd January…that this mananam on Ram Setu a few days later is His prasad.

    But I have just realised that the Aditya Hrudaya Stotram which I had been chanting for the past fortnight also had a part to play in it.

    The intro verse of this Stotram…of Sage Agastya walking up to Suryavamshi Rama and asking Him to get the blessings of Surya Bhagavan as Lord Rama stands on Ram Setu facing the battle…..🙏

    I am grateful that your discussion/blog has made it all come alive for me.

    Shri Rama Jaya Rama Jaya Jaya Rama!
    Om Rishibhyo Namah!

      Hi there

      The Aditya Hruday stotra is equivalent to the Bhagwat Gita of the Mahabharat.
      if you cannot read the BG daily then at least recite/hear the AHS daily, it is the same thing.
      personally i like the version sung by Vijay prakash, i often listen it on a loop hours.

      what is the ‘aditya’ really?
      and where is the ‘hruday’?
      Bhagwan Rishi Agasti asked Shri Ram to invoke his inner Sun, ie his Atmajyoti to defeat Ravan,
      ie the Guru reminds the aspirant of his own real nature Advaita and thus destroy the individual self ego.
      here the Setu is the Sushumna.

    Please clarify a confusion that I have. You mention that you need Siddakunjika mantra chanting of 9 lakhs to activate the Navavarana Mantra.

    Is “Om Sing Hreeng Kleeng Chamundayai Vicche” Siddakunjika Mantra?

    What is the Navavarana Mantra then?

    Thank you so much for your sharing.


    • astrologerbydefault January 10, 2022 / 10:35 am

      Hi there
      Read it again
      Siddhakunjika is the entire thing. Frm shrunu devi pravakshami … aranye rodanam tatha….
      Its to b recited once while taking the sankalp tht the person will recite the navavarna mantra ‘om…. vicche’ 9 lakh times. Reciting it 9 lakh times activates it.

    Apologies for my frequent questions about sannyasis and the various concepts of vedanta.
    i belong to a monastic order…guided by my Guru who patiently oversees me walking the path…
    i do feel strongly about the sanctity of the sannyas order.

    very often i find vedanta, jyotish and the bhakti marga separated and that to me is not wholistic Vedic culture. only in your blog, i find the correct blending of all three. that is why i keep returning to it. not to mention the grace of your guru pulsating in your words…it is my trust in the rishis of bharat and in advaita.

    how the planets and meditation merge in the seeker is fascinating…and extremely relevant to all sadhakas.

    Vyjayanti is just a username i have used to remember the garland of the Lord in my own ways…:)

    have a blessed week….🙏

      Hi there
      This happens when people give more importance to the route, the crutch, the support, the vehicle etc rather than the final destination.

      I have written a lot on sadhana, Dhyan, mantra, pujas, Yajna etc. Use the index page or the search bar.

      But the genuine aspirant never forgets that these are the crutches, not the final destination.

      There should be clarity of purpose. But this will also come after several lifetimes.

      When I do my mantra, or give Arghya or go for pilgrimages I am very clear on what I am doing and why. The route is beautiful, I will walk on it, utterly so beautiful and I appreciate it but it is not my final destination.
      But the destination is also reflected in the route, so I worship the Advaita evident in the Jyotish, Devi, in my Mantra, in the Yajna, in the Sun and always in my Satguru.
      I wrote a post on the 6 darshan shastra. This is how I have seen it. Peeling the skins of reality, layer by layer. It is the same consciousness, there is no difference. Depends on your perspective.

      Each one of us who is alive, is unconsciously reciting the Soham mantra with every breath we take, no exceptions.
      But one day, whenver that happens, everyone who has taken up Dhyan will stop the breath too, ie enter the Kumbhak, from then onwards towards the self.

      All this problem caused by not knowing Sanskrit and not opening the actual books.
      Eg there was a discussion on Setu Bandh. And a few readers felt inspired to buy the actual Sanskrit text. Those who actually read it will literally have their Jnyan chakshu opened by their Shraddha in Devi Sita and Shri Ram.
      I will point out only 2 shloks, actually the entire text is beyond fascinating.

      In 1-1-98 – Ramayan is वेदैश्च सम्मितम् ie it is emphatically the same as, equal to the Ved. So it is technically a commentary on the Ved. It is the Advaita itself.

      1-3-38 is the last shlok of the synopsis of the Ramayan by Valmiki Muni. And the last line is स्वराष्ट्ररञ्जनं चैव वैदेह्याश्च विसर्जनम्
      स्वराष्ट्ररञ्जनं means the enjoyment of ones own Place.
      So for the one who understands the Advaita this Ramayan is about self realization.
      चैव वैदेह्याश्च विसर्जनम् really means the very secret and special creation of/from that feminine who is composed of a very special and secret body.
      Ramayan then from a Shakta point of view is basically the power of the Devi Laxmi described in all its splendour.

      You can enjoy the texts only if you understand Sanskrit. ie are able to read them directly.
      that is why i insist that those who want to follow Sanatan Dharma must buy a copy of the Ramayan and Mahabharat, Gita press, in Sanskrit with the translation of your choice. read a few shloks a day even if you do not understand them much. They are our Itihas.
      at least you will be able to refute the nonsense spread about them.

      read the part on how the Vanar were created. what they really are, beings who live in the other dimensions, specially created by the deities, nakshatra, gandharva, Kinnar, Apsara, Kimpurush etc for specific purposes. 1-17
      And stop referring to them as ‘monkeys, langoors, bears, etc.’ if you do the loss is ultimately yours as they will never reveal their reality to you.

    I am in no hurry to go through the index and complete the reading…:) After studying Vedanta, I could not even read a novel and i used to be a bookworm….finally I have this blog as an oasis.

    the navagrahas are beautiful…as is your writing….

    e.g cancer ascendant….depth of disinterest….”He sort of drifts into Moksha.”
    Cracked me up so much when i read this line while recognising the sheer magnitude of this point.

    e.g mercury….in kanya….”gets his friends for a sleep-over or eat food on the bed, no one to continually look at what he is upto..”

    Your blog….it is a seva to Sanatana Dharma…

    Is there a certain translation of Ramayana and Mahabharata into English that is more correct than others that you would recommend.? Obviously, if one could understand Sanskrit, that would be the best. Would you also be able to recommend someone who could teach Sanskrit on line? someone who is really well versed. I know a teeny little bit of Sanskrit from 55 years ago(2nd language in college)
    I am trying to learn on my own. But I will barely make a dent at this rate before life comes to an end. It would be great to find a teacher so I can progress in a structured and relatively speedy fashion.
    Thank you.


    • astrologerbydefault January 11, 2022 / 8:26 pm

      Hi there
      if you know even one Bharatiya language you can easily pick up Sanskrit, all use the same words from Malayalam to Hindi to Assami to Gujrathi.
      in my personal opinion, the closest to Sanskrit is Marathi (not the idiotic slang type of marathi dialect that bollywood propagates) and Telugu.

      i will always recommend Gita press as the best option as the books are very very reasonably priced, easily available and generally ok translated into several languages.


      • Nagarathna January 11, 2022 / 8:56 pm

        Oh My God. This is just what I needed. Thanks a million for sharing that Sanskrit University information.


  47. Nagarathna January 11, 2022 / 8:18 pm

    One more question – there are so many variations of pronunciation of even the common mantras. Could you please clarify which is correct and also if the other variation is wrong or just less right?

    For eg. Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra:

    The first word is variously pronounced as “Triambakam”, “Trayambakam” and “Tryambakam” – which is right? Are the others wrong?

    The other variation I hear is “Bandanaan” or “Bandanaath”?


    The Gayatri mantra:
    In the vyahriti, the least word is pronounced as “svah”, “svaha” and “Suvaha”
    which is right?

    Thank you again.

    Thank you so much for all of your answers. I really appreciate that.

    Another question – if a person was born in Gandant nakshatra(moon) – Aslesha pada 3 and the parents didn’t know anything about poojas to be done and that person is now in early 40’s – would it still be useful to do remedies for that Gandant situation? And what would that remedy be?

    You recommend that we chant the beej mantra without the nasal ending when we are doing the chant for others but to do it with the nasal ending if we are chanting for ourselves.

    Can you please explain the reason behind it? Thank you for all the sharing of your vast knowledge.


      • Nagarathna January 15, 2022 / 8:52 pm

        I think I didn’t word my question correctly.
        If the nasalized version of Beej Mantra is more powerful, what is the reason for not using it in both situations – when we are doing it for ourselves or for someone else? Please tell us. Again, thank you

        Hi there
        eg if u r a pujari Brahmin and doing Shani shanti and it is not for you, so why would you want its energy overloading your personal system even briefly?

        if you want to experiment with the different versions do so and come to your own conclusions.

    First of all, I absolutely love reading your blog. It’s so informative.

    I have a couple of questions about yantras. Several online stores say they go through the energization/prana pratishta procedure before shipping the yantra out to the user. However, one thing I’m wondering is – can yantras pick up negative energy if not created properly? And if so, does this make them potentially harmful to the user?

    If possible, your insights would be much appreciated.

    Thank you!
