What I consider as the Magnus opus of my life - the Siddhantic precession of Equinoxes - validated by paleo climatic data, and published in the Astrological mag as a series is now available for download from my academia page.

Besides the numerous textual evidences for the to and fro oscillation of the equinoxes and the pole stars within Shishumara (Ursa Minor), I have highlighted the shifting shadow at the Tropic of cancer in what is called the Jambu Marga. The solstitial limit is moving south + Image
presently at the rate of 15 meters / year. This will turn northward anytime in near future signaling the change of direction of the equinox. When it happens the solstice shadow would remain static for years and not move as it is now. This is similar to 'stambhita' or motionless+
phase of the planets as seen from the earth when they change the direction in retrogression. Similar event noted as the 'fall of Yayati' from the heavens before Rama's time. This place is part of Jambu Marga. The shadow started moving again in Rama's time from South to north +
when sage Agastya happened to move to the Tamil lands in the south. Tracking of precession shows that the event of Agastya stopping Vindhyas from growing was indeed the time solstice started moving in fw direction from S to N crossing the Vindhyas. Other details in the link.
The limited movement of the equinoxes within 54° causes no great change in seasons, makes Dhruva (Polaris) to be always near NCP, makes saptarishis always revolve closely around Dhruva mandala, never causes Arundhati to shift her position and offers the only source to date MBh. Image

Re-post: On Agni nakshatra, Agni nakshatra Dosha and things to avoid in that period.
Agni nakshathra is so called
because it is the time the sun crosses Krittika.
The star krittika is known as agni nakshatra in
"Utthara KAlAmrutham” and in other texts of+
astrology. Krittika is associated with heat and agni.
The ati-devatha of this star is Agni.
The Lord of the star Krittika is Sun, which is at its exalted level at Aries where the head of Krittika is situated.
The Lord of the house where the star begins is Mars, planet for fire+
The sign, Aries is also the sign of fire.
The sojourn of Sun in this fiery star also coincides with maximum heat experienced in the Northern hemisphere.

Texts say that works on soil, wood and stone are to be discouraged during this time.
The rationale is understandable.+

Thread on Śaka era

Kali Yuga of 4,32,000y is divided into 6 sub-divisions called Śaka eras. Each Śaka is founded by a king called Śakakāraka. The king who defeats the Śaka tribes (Mleccha) becomes the founder of a Śaka era. When he does that the existing Śaka era is replaced by+
a new Śaka era. These eras cannot start on some date as they form the basis for time calculations. A new era can be formed only at the completion of a Kali year.

All these eras must have been framed by the “Pura-Vidah”, the sages of the earlier time who devised the Kali Yuga+
computation. The names of the eras and the duration of each of them must have been given by them. If on the other hand, the era classification was done in the period of King Vikrama who initiated the Vikrama Śaka, there is no rationale in allotting just 135 years to his era +

Part 10 of the supplementary series on Mahabharata date 3136 BCE uploaded.

"Kali" verses explained.


Kali popped up in previous yugas whenever Tamasic nature was witnessed.
Kali along with Dvapara appeared in Treta Yuga and afflicted Nala. +
Kali appeared wherever Ravana went, says Valmiki Ramayana

Kali got manifest in Treta Yuga again when sage Chyavana lustfully watched a young girl without her knowledge.

Kali manifested in Dvapara Yuga when dice game was announced with malefic intentions. Dvapara devata resides+
dice game. It was played often in Treta Yuga, but only for fun and as a game. In Dvapara Yuga during Mahabharatha it was played with foul intention of grabbing one's wealth. Then it is said that Kali colluded with Dvapara. Same as what happened to Nala in Treta Yuga +

Mahabharata Fact file 1:
35 years after Mahabharatha war ended, Krishna left this world. At that very moment Kali Yuga began. Now we are completing 5122 Kali years by mesha samkramana in 2021. This works to 3101 BCE as Kali first year and 3136 BCE as the year of Mahabharata war
Mahabharata Fact file 2:
Pramathi was the year name of the first year of Kali Yuga. This is re-confirmed by Aryabhata's age at 3600 Kali years when Pramathi was running.
Krodhi was the year running 35 years before Kali Yuga began.
Therefore Mahabharatha war took place in Krodhi.
Mahabharata Fact file 3:

The exile of Pandavas started in Khara (3149 BCE) Dakshinayana, Ashadha Krishna Dasami with the moon at Rohini at sunrise

The exile ended in Krodhi year (3136 BCE), Dakshinayana, Ashadha Krishna Dasami with the moon at Krittika at sunrise. War in Krodhi

Sharad Purnima traced to Krishna’s times in the worship of Ashvins
The rituals done on this day reveals unexplored events connected with Krishna’s life but found hidden in a couple of verses in Rig Veda.
Timing has an amazing link with Chaitra Purnima + Image
Indra Festival was celebrated on Chaitra Purnima when full moon forms coupling with Chitra,whose lord Tvashta was celestial builder for Indra’s Vajrayudha (rainfall). Tvashta also happens to be the guardian of Soma. A festival for Indra on this day is like offering Soma to Indra+
Krishna stopped Indra Festival, "let the Gods worship Indra and let us worship the hills.’ Krishna lived in a place of plenty of water from rivers (Yamuna) and therefore was not really dependant on rainfall (Indra’s favour) He preferred to offer Soma to Ashvins,+

Vedic connection to Russia comes from the descendants of King Sibi who migrated there. Siberia is derived from ‘ Sibir’ as the region was mentioned in travelogues of old.

From Sibi to Siberia!
jayasreesaranathan.blogspot.com/2017/11/from-s… +
Two sons of Sibi established kingdoms at Madra (Balkh) and Kekaya (north of it, perhaps north of Oxus River). Further north, Arkaim is found to house a structure with Vedic symbols. Dated variously between 4th and 2nd millennium BCE, this structure was formed in the later period+
compared to Sibi’s times which can be dated at the 6th millennium BCE, centuries before Rama. Arkaim offers a link of a migratory path from Kekaya to further north – to Sibir. Rivers Karakanga & Utyakanga at whose confluence Arkaim is located, sound like Ganga +
