Amrit Paan

In jyotish(astrology), the Sun is considered as the Soul and Moon as subtle mind. In our puraans moon is describe as a God riding a chariot with three wheels. This chariot is hauled by ten horses. During its entire journey, the Moon passes through all the twenty-seven Nakshatras of a zodiac. It is rays of the sun which causes moon to appear as bright. The sun not only causes the formation of day and night but also act as a source of nourishment for the celestial sphere. Sun lights up all the places in the entire world except Brahmaloka. Sun’s rays that reach Brahmaloka return back turn into ineffective by the glow of Brahma. One of the Sun’s rays named Sushumna nourishes the Moon during its brighter phase(Shukla Paksha) in the form of nectar. Then during the darker phase(Krishna Paksha), the Gods drink the phases of the Moon, which are actually , ambrosia accumulated during the shukla paksha. When two days are left for the completion of Krishna paksha i.e. Chaturdashi and Amavasya, Pitragana drink the remaining two phases of the Moon. At the begining of amavasya moon is 12.5 degrees away from the sun. This is a crucial phase of journey of moon towards sun. At this moment the stage is set for the moon to enter the surya-loka. That day, the Moon first enters the water then the plants and creepers and ultimately enters the Sun’s sphere. That is why, on this day anybody who cuts trees or even plucks a leaf commits crime equal to killing of Brahmin . On the day of Amavasya, Pitragana drink the nectar from the Moon . Pittraganas are the ruling diety for the amavasya tithi. It is very auspicious to do tarpan for the ancestors on amavasya tithi.

Sapta Ganga

In India, the river is considered as a deity. Our saints had written many verses in praise of rivers and discovered that they are capable of giving salvation. The principal 7 rivers are called as “Sapta Ganga”. The list includes the most sacred 7 rivers-
1)      Ganga
2)      Yamuna
3)      Godavri
4)      Saraswati
5)      Kaveri
6)      Narmada
7)      Sindhu.

Ganga- River Ganga represented as a goddess residing on her vehicle ‘crocodile’. Originates from Hiamlayas and join Bay of Bengal. Sage Bhagirath brought river Ganga from is also called "Moksha Dayani", the one who gives salvation.

Yamuna- daughter of Sun God having blue colour. It originates from Himalayas and  joins Ganaga at Allahabad called as “Prayaag”. Their confluence is considered so auspicious that this place is often called as “Teerth Raj” means “king of all the pilgrimage”. This river witnessed the glorious childhood time of Lord Krishna.

Saraswati- The invisible and most mystic river represented by the goddess in white dress having swan as her vehichle.It originates at Mana village in Uttrakhand region and joins Arabian sea at Somnath(Gujrat). This river is a knowledge giver because goddess saraswati is a deity of knowledge. This invisible river is also present at Allahabad. The confluence of 3 rivers here is called “Triveni Sangam”

According to belief the river Ganges also joins Kaveri underground once a year,  in order to wash herself free of the pollution caused by the crowds of sinners who bathe in her waters all the year round. Kaveri is considered to be as sacred as the Ganges throughout its course, with the same power to wash off all one’s sins.

Narmada-it originates from Amarkantak,the central India . The auspiciousness of the river can be judged from the fact that according to mythology every stone lying at its bed is replica of Lord Shiva. This river is also called as “River of detachment”

Godavri- often called as “Dakshin Ganga” means  “Ganga of south India”. It raises from hill in Triambak town near Nasik city at Maharashtra. Its mention has been made in the epic Ramayana because lord Rama spent crucial time of his exile along the banks of this river.

The Karma Theory

In Janam- kundli the Dhrama Trikonas i.e. Lagna,5th and 9th house are the pillars. Human take birth according to his karmas of past live. It is the 5th house which indiacates the deeds of past life. While judging the horoscope these 3 houses plays key role in formation of Rajyogas. It is the dasha which confers the Rajyoga to a native at particular time. Some people argues that there are Rajyogas in their horoscope but they have nothing in hand. The answer is that one require a good dasha also without which all the Rajyoga are waste. In reality the good Rajyoga is “good dasha at a good time”. So a weak moon or lagna lord can single handedly destroy the Rajyogas. Still the question is why the people suffers? For this it is important to understand the Law of karmas.
Karmas are divided into four categories:
1. Sanchit: A collection of Karmas of past life.
2. Prarabdha: The ready to experience Karmas. Itis that portion of Sanchit karma which is ready to be experienced by an individual during his/her life time.In other words it represents the current effects of past actions which appear as destiny. It is through the horoscope from which an astrologer tries to analyse the “Prarabdh”
3. Kriyamana: They are the current Karmas which we perform daily due to free will and thoughts. They have the ability to over ride our past Karma i.e. Sanchit/Prarabdha Karma.
4. Agama: They are the approaching Karmas. Agama Karma is also that karma whose fruits may ripen and be available in your next birth.
In astrology there are many causes to give one effect. That is why classification of any action into one class of karma or another is not always easy . The important thing to realize is that while we may not escape the effect of deeds of past life but we can work in conformity with it. That is where free will comes in. The use of free will hold important key. If the role of free will is ignore then astrology will also loose its significance.So free will is a link between unalterable future and the probable future.

Age of House

It sounds amazing that age of house can be calculated. In modern era the construction is done at abnormally alarming rate. Despite using new technology It is often seen that houses which were built many decades before are still in a better position than the newly built house as they require renovation less frequently.

To know the age of house multiply the built up area by 8 and divide it by 120. The remainder indicates the age of house. It is advisable that it should be above 60. The lesser it is, the more frequently the house will demand renovation.
For Example
The area of floor is 20fx38f
Formula =(20x38)x8/120=(760x8)/120=6080/120=Remainder is 80
This is above the average.

Good Morning Gods!

It takes one year for sun to travel through 12 zodiac signs. In the month of January sun enters the zodiac sign Capricorn (makar). This entry of sun in makar raashi is known as “Makar Sakranti”. This marks the beginning of northward journey of sun. From this day till next 6 months, when sun covers the 6 zodiac signs from Capricorn to Gemini, this period is known as “Uttarayan” which is considered as auspicious as the upcoming 6 months are considered as “Day” of gods where as period from suns entry to cancer sign till Capricorn sign is considered as “Night” for gods. Even Bhisham Pitamah , who had a boon , waited for sun to enter Capricorn before he leave for heaven. As per legend , the sun who is the father of Saturn had promised him to visit his house(Capricorn sign) once in a year despite having enemity between them. As per another belief Sage Bhagirath who brought river Ganga to earth for salvation of his ancestors manage to liberate them from the curse of Sage Kapil. It is a day of worship of sun god. Tarpan done on this day brings all the blessings from the ancestors. Charity done on this day has its own importance. This is the only hindu festival which is based upon the solar movement where as other festivals are based upon moon. That is why this festival coincides with English calendar.

Numero Kundli

In numerology every number is associated with particluar vibrations. It is the synchronization of the numbers which is important. Just like in astrology where kundlis are used to check the compatibility, in numerology it is the synchronization of destiny number which is the deciding factor. For example suppose a male born on 1st jan 1980 then his destiny number will be 1+1+1+9+8+0=20=2+0=2. Similarly for a girl who born on 13-8-1982, her destiny number will be 1+3+8+1+9+8+2=32=3+2=5. It is found that these two numbers has no synchronization. Therefore they are not compatible for suitable match. Given below the table which indicates the synchronization of destiny number with others.
1 has a synchronisation with 1-3-5
2 has a synchronisation with 2-4-8
3 goes well with 1-3-6
4 has a compatibility with 2-4-8
5 performs well with 3-5-7
6 is synchronised with 3-6-9
7 is synchronised with 1-5-7
8 is synchronised with 2-4-8
9 is synchronised with 3-6-9

Rahu Kaal

Rahu is a planet of separation. It is rahu who was given a boon that he will cause eclipse from time to time. It is a natural malefic planet. The kaal means “the period of time”. It is believe that certain duration of each day is inauspicious which is rule by Rahu. During this time one should avoid any auspicious action such as investments, business transactions, journeys and medical treatments. It is believed that work done during this period does not bring successful results..In hindu jyotish the day begins when the sun rises. The difference between time of sunset and sunrise indicate the length of day called as Dinmaan. Divide the Dinmaan by 8. We get 1/8 th portion of a day. Now for various days the portion ruled by rahu is given below.
For Sunday , the 8th portion from the sunrise is Ruled by Rahu
For Monday the 2nd portion is called Rahu Kaal
For Tuesdays - 7th portion is Rahu Kaala
For Wednesday - 5th portion is Rahu Kaala
For Thursday - 6 th portion is Rahu Kaala
For Friday - 4 th portion is Rahu Kaala
For Saturday -3rd portion is Rahu Kaala

For Example

For Monday if the sunrise in Delhi is at 6.30am and sun set is 5.50 pm, then the Dinmaan will be (5.50pm-6.30 am) of 11 hrs and 20 mints equivalent to 680 mints. Divide it by 8, we will get duration of each portion of 85 minutes (1 hr & 25 mints.).
Portion 1 from sunrise(6.30) to 7.55 am
Portion 2 from 7.55 am to 9.20 am
Portion 3 from 9.20 am to 10.45 am
Portion 4 from 10.45 am to 12.10 pm
Portion 5 from 12.10 pm to 1.35 pm
Portion 6 from 1.35 pm to 3.00 pm
Portion 7 from 3.00 pm to 4.25 pm
Portion 8 from 4.25 pm to 5.50 pm
As per rule on Monday 2nd portion is rahu kaal. Therefore from 7.55 am to 9.20 am is rahu kaal
