Astrology is not a perfect science. But sometimes one predicts with impossible odds.
Many decades ago I was an intern. The MO I/c was very anti Jyotish.
He used to slap the closed doors of my quarters “Ae Rahu/ Ae Ketu” on occasion.
One morning, 9am, I was summoned in front on…… Now… the villagers also started laughing. “Arre bala, pratyek tasala bus yete”
“A bus arrives every hour”…
He said , “let me show you how Jyotish is completely wrong: it’s superstition” and he changed and with the villagers, went and stood at the bus stop. Might be 9:30AM. I……

It’s important to understand that “chakras” have minimal relevance for most people. They DO NOT open unless you have electricity going through them( comparison is like a flower which opens only when sunlight sees it).
You can sometimes have some Prana flowing through a Nadi but🧵 Prana flowing through a Nadi produces that Nadi’s sight into the sadhaka.
Nadis connect at certain places, their opening may be blocked in some people and open in others, typical contact of Nadi is with Muladhara and Swadhishthan (hence visions of those based on hidden seed) +

One particular thing that women should be especially careful about is that some people know a “Naqsha” (a particular Yantra type thing) which if hung with proper timing somewhere is said to cause them feelings of extreme longing or sadness.
I will delete this🧵later. The Naqsha has a particular entity attached to it .. that particular thing will be called by someone who actually had done the Sadhana of that entity. They bind that to the Naqsha using a special thing (not for SM)
Then every time that piece of paper sways..

I have seen quite a few Jyotishis say:
Don’t to Vishnu Sahasranaam. Others say don’t recite Hanuman Chalisa. Others “don’t recite Kavacha”
IMHO, this is in my experience, essential to life, if done following the basic rules.
🧵 I have seen a whole lot of people who don’t do anything… get exposed to ideologies which are against their amcestral Dharma… they then do Dharmantaran.. then the family might/ will break.. then ancestors will not get Shraddha.. etc.

Those people who feel that they are troubled by negative energies (entities or whatever) may join my next workshop on Sri Vidya.
A certain Shareer bandhan Shabar mantra meditation is given to reduce the negative energies along with an idea of how to energise the protection. Most sadhakas are completely unaware of these mantras or that such procedures exist.
So far 1000’s of people have benefited in some small or greater manner in these workshops.
This is the most basic prerequisite for many people … after which other bandhanas can be applied.

Today has come to be accepted as “New Year’s day 2023”
but for Hindus is:
1. Shukla paksha (bright half Moon) Dashami (10th part) with the
2. Sun at Purvashadha fixed star in Dhanus Rashi (Sidereal Sagittarius)
3. where 5088 years have elapsed since Mahabharata
🧵on Samkalpa Thus you see, Hindus knew everyday the position of the Moon in the sky with relation to a fixed star,
The Moonphase,
The Sun’s position with relation to a fixed star,
The Sun’s Sign,
All these were recorded along with Kali Yuga start at 3102 BCE +

अर्जुन उवाच
दृष्ट्वेमं स्वजनं कृष्ण युयुत्सुं समुपस्थितम् ।
सीदन्ति मम गात्राणि मुखं च परिशुष्यति ॥
Thus we have the first padam which is दृष्ट्वा
This comes from the root दृश्
which expands to दृशिँर् प्रेक्षणे which is a परस्मैपदी Dhatu
How it became दृष्ट्वा? The root is दृश् and thus
this दृष्ट्वा is based on the कृदन्त form which is got by adding the क्त्वा प्रत्यय to दृश् dhatu, as a result we get दृष्ट्वा which will mean: "on seeing "

The confusion some make is with क्त instead of क्त्वा:
this however is दृष्टा and NOT दृष्ट्वा

Three transits are upcoming which are of varying intensity and significance.
1. Mars stationary transit in 15 days at 13 deg Vrishabha:
Watch out for accidents especially motor vehicle resulting in fire.
2. Mercury retrograde transit: mistakes/ errors/ haste.
3. Saturn changing🧵 1. Mars stationary transit at 13 deg Vrishabha is powerful for a few signs:
A: Tula Rashi where it’s the 2nd and 7th Lord in the 8th house.
Avoid fraud. Some may see it’s not great for mother and for some for health.
B: Mithuna Rashi where it’s in 12th.

On Sadhana:
A Q asked:
There are ups/ downs in sadhana.
This happens.
Key is to understand that there are different tattwas:
1. The mind is different to the intellect is different to the self.
2. Ignore experiences unless replicable or if the experience is replicated 🧵Cont’d Point 2:
Ignore experiences unless replicable or if the experience which you had is replicated in many other people’s dreams or visions.
Nirguna and Saguna can both occur in sadhana.

Beware “spoofing” calls.
These are when your area/ country numbers are mimicked by VOIP technology.
These can be either prank callers or they can be scams.
You can identify the originating number using certain software..
🧵 So, for example, you are in the USA, apparently called by a USA number and then you answer the call and the other person hangs up.
You call back and that person who answers says that they didn’t have their phone with them at the time.

So, why should people not eat or drink during eclipses?
The first part of the logic is:
Agni/ Fire internally is considered as sum total 🟰 1
Now, it can either digest food or it can digest mantras.
Food = by Jathar Agni
Mantras = by Bhuta Agni
🧵 If you eat a lot, that amount of Agni/ Fire used to digest food 🟰 large part of 1
It could be 0.75/0.85/0.95 BUT closer to 1
That leaves the remainder for digestion of mantras 🟰 0.25/0.15/0.05
The same logic applies to homam. That’s why I don’t eat before homam.

The effects of an eclipse on gravity are well known AND controversial until a Dutch scientist pointed to a possible flaw in Einstein’s relativity theory and that effects of eclipses on pendulums had NO explanation.
(Hindus knew this for millennia)
🧵… The strange gravitational effects of eclipses are known to Hindus for millennia.
Standing an iron rod/ pestle upright in a wet cowdung during an eclipse which falls after the eclipse ends is well known even in villages by non physics grads.
What the effect of this gravity change?

A powerful 4th lord and a fortified Venus if in some form of aspect by conjunction or opposition even, may be associated with property and vehicles, the more powerful the Yoga, the more the person stands out due to these.
🧵 If the 4th Lord is Mercury (Meena/Mithuna Lagna/ Rashi/ both), then if that Mercury is strong with aspect from Lagna Lord, then the person may own multiple properties, multiple such vehicles.
Anything promised by Mercury may give two or more of that if powerful.

Neecha Bhanga Saturn if well aspected can be an indication that weaknesses will be removed and replaced by strength.
However such a placement of Saturn as it’s guna dharma suggests will produce success slightly later in life around 50 years of age.
🧵slow The Nakshatra placement of Saturn reveals bit more on how the weakness is replaced:
In Aries/ Mesha, 3 Nakshatras are present:
Ashwini/ Bharani/ Krittika.
In Bharani for eg, it’s by discipline, austerity (Sadhana -Yama and Niyama), remember Yama is the Devata of the Nakshatra..

If you really have a connection with the Great Goddess from some or the other lifetime, even the person you supposedly “decide” to spend your lifetime with will be decided from some old Devi worshipper’s family and there may be existent proof of that connection.. in print. That person or their parents and prominent family members may be born in Navaratri periods or on some Tithi sacred to the Devatas.
The current Devi bhakta’s descendants will also have connection with birth in Devi Paksha… it’s impossible to miss these basics.

One of the classic situations new sadhakas face when they either start a long protective Sadhana like Hanuman Chalisa (or even Sri Vidya/ Bhairava upasna/ Narasimha ) is odd dreams of some weird unknown entities/ negative energies.
I will narrate a personal experience too.
🧵 Nearly a decade ago I started living in a particular different house abroad.
One day I decided to start a particular sadhana… I had never done this before .. nor did I know the history of that house.. but this is simply to illustrate what power Sadhana in general has to uncover.

Many think that the Ugra Devata mantras give very quick “results”.
Mostly just repeating any mantra in the way 99.9% people do gives no result other than bit of mental satisfaction.
🧵 The thing is that huge number of people abd huge amount of internet blogs and YouTube videos (all monetised of course) promise the moon to people in trouble.
Reality is very different.
These Devis are veritable Kings and Queens of the Universe, they r not your servants .

Small 🧵 for Hindus which people may wish to test and check.
Whatever I advise comes out of long observation over decades:
1. You may decide to hurt someone but DON’T go ahead with it. It will bind you to the person/ circumstance/ can form Dridha Karma with no remedy. 2. If you by some chance find yourself in that situation where you are forced to respond, keep your brain/ thinking power/ mind intact so that only enough force is used to stop the other person.
If you use excess force, you will cause permanent damage AND the Dridha karma forms.

See.. the headlessness which afflicts people comes from:
1. Lack of knowledge.
2. Lack of curiosity for knowledge.
3. Pride in money and looks.
4. Ignorance.
5. Inability to think clearly.
🧵 Lack of knowledge and ignorance are not the same.
The worst is if one lacks curiosity for knowledge.. then one won’t want to learn.
And then you need patience and ability to sit for hours altogether.. if both are lacking .. curiosity is of little use..

A lot of people ask/ wonder how a sect like the Aghori sect with its rather difficult and extreme practices comes into being.
This is a metaphysical answer and will add a few nuances in a thread if and when possible.
🧵 Reason 1: (only my two cents here.. not a historical reason)
The thing is that Hindus and other Bharatiyas would realise like many other Hindus over the centuries that it’s extremely difficult to see a Devata face to face with the eyes open.
Eons may pass before this happens+
