1-ॐ सूर्य सुन्दरलोकनाथममृतं वेदान्तसारं शिवं

ज्ञानं ब्रह्ममयं सुरेशममलं लोकैकचित्तं स्वयम् ।

इन्द्रादित्यनराधिपं सुरगुरुं त्रैलोक्यचूडामणि

ब्रह्माविष्णुशिवस्वरूपहृदयं वन्दे सदा भास्करम् ।। (1/18)

2-Om Suryam sundaralokanathamamritam vedantasaram sivam,

Jnanam brahmamayam suresamamalam lokaikaphittam svayam;

Indradityanaradhipam suragurum trailokyachudamanim,

Brahmavishnusiva svarupa hridayam vande sada bhaskaram (2/18)
3-I always adore #Surya, the #Sun,

the beautiful Lord of the world,

the immortal,

the quintessence of the #Vedanta,

the auspicious,

the absolute knowledge,

Lord of the gods,


the one true #consciousness of the world himself, (3/18)

4-the Lord of Indra, the gods and men,

the preceptor of the gods,

the crest-jewel of the three worlds,

the very heart of the forms of #Brahma, #Vishnu and #Shiva,

the giver of #Light. (4/18)

5-The very first thing I see in a #BirthChart is how the #Sun is placed.

The Sun is the sense of #self of the #Soul

..and indicates the level of its #manifestation in this world. (5/18)

6-The Sun shows who we are – deep down - as apart from how we appear to others or what roles we take.

It shows how we are with ourselves, in ourselves, and by ourselves.

A well-placed Sun gives intelligence, perception, strength of will and character. (6/18)

7-Endurance, #vitality, Effulgence of spirit, direction, courage, conviction,

..confidence, leadership, independence and straight-forwardness - are all attributes of a great Sun placement (7/18)

8-An ill-placed Sun gives lack of intelligence, poor perception, weakness of will and character.

It creates lack of endurance, low vitality, melancholy, fear, dependency or servitude,

..and sometimes even deviousness or dishonesty (8/18)

9-In a lot of charts, I have also seen - a too strong Sun - also malefically disposed - creating pride, arrogance, tyranny and control.

It creates much of the same problems as Mars (or Saturn) when too strong. (9/18)

10-In a lot of charts, I have seen such a situation can give a deceptive charisma and a dominating personality

A weak but spiritually disposed Sun makes us receptive, wanting to do good, and self-effacing. (10/18)

11-Such a person sacrifices himself but may not know why he is doing that

The Sun rules the heart, the organ of circulation and vitality, and a weak Sun gives problems here (11/18)

12-हे विश्वनाथ शिव शङ्कर देवदेव

गङ्गाधर प्रमथनायक नन्दिकेश ।

बाणेश्वरान्धकरिपो हर लोकनाथ

संसारदुःखगहनाज्जगदीश रक्ष ॥ (12/18)

13-he viśvanātha śiva śaṅkara devadeva

gaṅgādhara pramathanāyaka nandikeśa ;

bāṇeśvarāndhakaripo hara lokanātha

saṃsāraduḥkhagahanājjagadīśa rakṣa (13/18)

14-O Lord of the universe,



God of gods who holds the Gangā in your locks,

Leader of the goblins

and Lord of Nandi,

O Bāneshwara,

the enemy of the demon Andhaka,

O destroyer of sins (Hara),

the Lord of men, (14/18)

15-O You! the ruler of the universe,

Protect me!

who am forlorn in the wilderness of the miseries of this world (#Samsāra) (15/18)

16-#Buddha famously said, #Life is #Suffering.

Instead, it is one of the first great #Truths of #Buddhism

My own personal attempt towards alleviating suffering in this world is #charity and giving people the best advise I can. (16/18)

17-To that end, I use #Astrological Consultations – wherein the intent is - to raise money and donate the proceeds to charity.

Join me in this #Yajna

Those seeking a personal consultation - please send a Direct Message. (17/18)

18-Money thus generated, shall be given to charity.

Preference will be given to those, with acute issues.

May #Goddess #Saraswati guide this little effort of mine with her own hands.! (18/18)

1-एक टक देर तक उस सुपुरुष को निहारते रहने के बाद बुजुर्ग भीलनी के मुंह से स्वर/बोल फूटे -

"कहो राम ! सबरी की डीह ढूंढ़ने में अधिक कष्ट तो नहीं हुआ ?"

राम मुस्कुराए :- "यहां तो आना ही था मां, कष्ट का क्या मोल, क्या मूल्य ?"
2-"जानते हो राम !

तुम्हारी प्रतीक्षा तब से कर रही हूँ, जब तुम जन्मे भी नहीं थे|

यह भी नहीं जानती थी, कि तुम कौन हो ?

कैसे दिखते हो ? क्यों आओगे मेरे पास ?

बस इतना ज्ञात था कि कोई पुरुषोत्तम आएगा जो मेरी प्रतीक्षा का अंत करेगा|
3-राम ने कहा :- "तभी तो मेरे जन्म के पूर्व ही तय हो चुका था कि राम को सबरी के आश्रम में जाना है”|

"एक बात बताऊँ प्रभु भक्ति के दो भाव होते हैं, पहला ‘मर्कट भाव’, और दूसरा ‘मार्जार भाव’|

1-#Savita is the presiding Deity of the #GayatriMantra,

#Fire (#Agni) is the mouth,

#Vishvamitra is the #Rishi and #Gayatri is the metre.

Gayatri Mantra is recited during the investiture of sacred thread, practice of #Pranayama and #Japa, etc. (1/15)

#संस्कृतिबोध Image
2-What Gayatri is, the same is #Sandhya, and what Sandhya is, the same is Gayatri.

Sandhya and Gayatri are identical.

He who meditates on Gayatri,

..meditates on Lord #Vishnu, the Supreme Lord of the #Universe. (2/15)

#सनातनशुद्धरूपसेविज्ञान Image
3-A man can repeat the Gayatri Mantra mentally, in all states, even while lying, sitting, walking, etc.

There is no sin of commission or omission of any sort in its repetition.

1-What could be a man’s point-of-opening into the #Vedic Corpus?

For me it is #Ayurveda, #VedicAstrology and #Vastu. (1/16)

2-Vedic #Astrology that ways is well & truly a #Vedanga…for it virtually has answers to every question one might have

If one has a subtle enough perception! (2/16)

3-Consider this from the works of #Parashara.

This is used as a tool for #BirthTimeRectification and #PrashnaAstrology by #Jyotishis

..especially in the #Tamil School of #VedicAstrology. (3/16)

1-What is the #Philosophy of #Japa and why is it important for #Sadhana?

What Is Japa?

Japa is the repetition of any Mantra or Name of the Lord. (1/15)

2-In this Kali Yuga or iron age when the physique of the vast majority of persons is not good,

..rigid Hatha Yogic practices are very difficult.

Japa is an easy way to God-realization. (2/15)

3-Tukaram, Dhruva, Prahlada, Valmiki Rishi, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa -

..all had attained salvation by uttering the Name of God. (3/15)
