The Dashavatara part 1 : Story of Birth of Krishna and era of Dharma and karma


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Whenever Dharma, the situation of law and order, is endangered on this world, Lord Vishnu
incarnates onto this world to re-establish Dharma, and to protect noble souls and to destroy
the evil elements of the society.
The eighth such incarnation was Krishna, which is one of the most powerful of ten
incarnations of Lord Vishnu. What we know about the life of Krishna comes from two
sources, the Srimad Bhagavatam, and the Mahabharata. The Mahabharata deals with a
family called the Pandavas and their cousins, the Kauravas.
In the Mahabharata, there is a
dialogue between Krishna and his disciple Arjuna, which is called Bhagavad Gita. 
The
fascinating early life of Krishna is covered in the Bhagavatam, and is our current topic of
interest.
Story of the Lord Krishna’s Birth
Once, Mother Earth, unable to bear the burden of sins committed by evil kings and rulers,
appealed to Lord Brahma, the God of Creation, for help. Brahma prayed to the Supreme Lord
Vishnu, who assured Him that He would soon be born on earth to annihilate tyrannical forces. 
One such evil force was Kamsa, the ruler of Mathura in northern India. His people were
utterly terrified of him. He had overthrown his own father King Ugrasena so he could become
King of Mathura.
Devaki was the princess of Mathura, and beloved sister of Kamsa. She got married to a noble
young man, King Vasudeva of the Yadu dynasty. After the marriage ceremony, Vasudeva’s
chariot was ready to take Devaki along with him to his home. As Kamsa was very fond of his
sister, he declared that he himself would drive the chariot to Vasudeva’s house. 
While Kamsa
drove the chariot bearing Devaki and Vasudeva out of the Mathura, a voice boomed from the
heavens. It informed Kamsa that Devaki’s eighth child would be his slayer.
On hearing this, Kamsa got anxious and angry. He wanted to kill Devaki, his own beloved
sister. Afraid of the ill intentions of Kamsa, Vasudeva pleaded with him not to kill Devaki. 
He
promised to Kamsa that they would hand over all their children to Kamsa if he feared that
one of them would kill him. Kamsa accepted the words of Vasudeva but did not let them go
free. He put them in his palace prison. Whenever a male child was born to the couple, Kamsa
would come to the prison and kill the child by smashing his head on the prison wall. Because
he was so evil, Kamsa was not moved by the painful cries of the parents. This happened to
the first seven children of Devaki and Vasudeva, all of whom were boys.
3
Now Devaki was expecting her eighth child. When she was about to deliver her baby, she
and Vasudeva both heard an Akashavani (voice from the sky) which told them that they must
take their child to Gokul and exchange him with the new born daughter of Nanda, the
cowherd king of Gokul. 
They were told by the divine voice that their son who was about to
take birth was the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He would eliminate evil on the earth and
protect the innocent people. The voice said nothing could stop Vasudeva from taking his son
to Gokul and coming back to the prison with Nanda’s daughter.
When Devaki gave birth to her eighth son, all the guards magically went to sleep and the
doors of the prison opened automatically. Vasudeva and Devaki were freed from their
shackles. 
It was raining heavily and Vasudeva had to cross the river Yamuna to reach Gokul.
The river was in full spate. Vasudeva took a bamboo basket and placed his son in it.
As Vasudeva stepped out and stood at the bank of river Yamuna, he was worried about his
child but then was reminded of the divine voice that promised him that nothing bad would
happen to the child. Vasudeva stepped into the river Yamuna submerging half his body in the
cold water. 
As he looked upwards, he saw a five mouthed snake providing protection to his
baby against the torrential rain!
On reaching Gokul, Vasudeva found the doors of Nanda’s house open and everyone in deep
sleep. He took the baby girl of Nanda from beside her mother Yashoda and put his own son
there. Then, as he had brought his son, he took the girl through the river. The five mouthed
snake protected the girl, just as it had Krishna. 
When he reached back home in Mathura, he
entered the prison, and everything got normal as before – he and Devaki were put back in
their shackles, the prison doors closed, and the guards woke up. As soon as the guards saw a
child beside Devaki, they informed Kamsa.
Kamsa, who had waited all these years to kill the eighth child of Devaki and Vasudeva, came
hurriedly to get rid of his destined slayer. Like always, he picked up the baby girl and threw
her against the wall but this time a miracle happened. 
The little baby slipped from his hands
and flew up into the air and took the form of the goddess, Yogamaya. She said to Kamsa,
“You want to kill me but the one who will kill you has taken birth and is safe somewhere out
of your reach. One day, your slayer will come searching for you and kill you. This is your
destiny and you cannot change this!” Saying this, she laughed and vanished leaving behind
the angry and dumbstruck Kamsa.
Nanda’s wife was Yashoda. Like Devaki, she had also given birth that night. She had fainted
at the time of her delivery. When she came to her senses next day morning, she found a
4
beautiful little baby lying by her side. Here was a joy beyond words, for the world had never
seen such a lovely child before. 
His skin was deep blue in color. The entire village came to
know that in Nanda’s house was born a most heavenly child. Nanda was the chief of the
Yadava clan. Since Nanda and Yashoda were not having any children, for quite some time,
the birth of the boy made the people of Gokul wild with delight and joy. The boy was named
Krishna with appropriate rituals. Krishna means “the dark skinned one.”
Every year, we celebrate a festival the day Lord Krishna was born, called Krishnashtami. 
The
festival is also called in different names as Sri Krishna Jayanti, Janmashtami, and as
Gokulashtami. 
Birth of Krishna Story

The story of Lord Krishna Around 5000 years ago, King Ugrasen ruled the small Indian village of Mathura. He was loved by all of his people, and raised two very fine children, Kans and Devki. As his children grew older, they both went their own ways. Kans jailed his father, and was the new King of Mathura. He still loved his sister, Devki, with a lot of heart, and got her married to an army officer, called Vasudev. On the day of their wedding, Kans found out that Devki’s eighth child would be born to kill him. For that reason, he though it would be wise to kill his sister Devki. Vasudev was very dear to Devki, and would not let this happen. They then came to an agreement that Kans will prison them, and let them live. But, they have to hand every child to Kans, so it can be killed. Kans had succeeded in killing all of Devki’s six children, and her seventh child, was transferred into Rohini’s womb. Being the second wife of Vasudev, Balram was then born to her, and Kans was fooled into thinking that Devki had a miscarriage. 

Krishna, being the eighth child, was born on a stormy night in that same prison. As the guards fell asleep, the gates of the prison opened freeing the family. Vasudev hid Krishna in a basket covered with a blanket and made their way to Gokul, where his friend Nand lived. While passing River Yamuna, the waters had turned wild. As Krishna’s foot touched the waters, the river parted making it easier for Vasudev to pass through. At that moment, Vasudev realized that Krishna was not a normal child but a divine human being. Nand & Yashoda became Krishna’s foster parents and Vasudev returned to the jail with Yashoda’s newborn daughter. She was then passed to Kans, to be killed as the eighth child of Devki. However, while taking this daughter by the legs, ready to end her life. She disappeared into thin air, being just an illusion and leaving a message that ‘the eighth child was born and is safe in Gokul’. 

Krishna grew up to be the son of Nand and Yashoda, and as destiny had predicted, he killed his uncle Kans, and all of Mathura was saved from his rule. Janmastami By Ami Gadhia Janmastami the festival Janmastami comes 8 days after the full moon of the Shravan month and it celebrates the birth of Lord Krishna. Many devotees begin fasting from ‘Sataam’ till the midnight of Krishna’s birth, where it is broken by tasting the ‘Prashad’ that was offered to him. There are two types of fasts; Nirjal fast is where they do not even have a drop of water on this day. They feel it will take them closer to God. The other fast is Phalahar Vrat, where only milk and fruits is eaten on this day. Salt and Cereals is also avoided on this day. People feel that it is the only thing that they can offer to God. Fasting is accompanied by singing bhajans throughout the day. Traditional sweets, made out of milk and butter are also eaten on this day, being one of Krishna’s favorite dishes. “Jhanki” means peeping into ones life. In this case, the moments of Krishna’s life is relived. People or Dolls are dressed up as Krishna, Devki and Vasudev. 

There are five scenes that are usually reconstructed. These are the birth of Krishna, Vasudev carrying Krishna safely across River Yamuna, His return to jail, the killing of Yashoda’s daughter and Little Krishna in his cradle in Gokul. The people that dress up are not seen as humans at this moment, but a representation of the Lord. The festival of Janmastami can go on for a number of days, as per family tradition. So, on the second day, the ladies usually wake up early to make a paste out of rice flour, and imprint footsteps coming towards their door.

This symbolises Krishna’s footsteps into his foster home. The ‘Dahi Handi’ ceremony also takes place later on this day. It consists of a clay pot being filled with milk, dry fruits and ghee, hung up on a rope above the ground. Many form a human pyramid to break the pot, and the people around throw water on them, trying to stop them. Many believe that a broken piece from this pot will keep away negative powers.

BHAGAVATAM – Lord Krishna’s Birth

Analysing Monthly transits report of 2018: Cosmic Vibes for the month of February 2018

Cosmic Vibes for the month of february 2018
By Imrana 

The month of February will start with the “Krishna paksha phase of Moon”, and it reactivates again the partial ” KAAL AMRITA YOG , a planetary formation when all the planets will be under the tight grip of shadow planets Rahu and Ketu.

The lunar eclipse in Ashlesha nakshatra and in the sign of Cancer on 31st January is a highly charged eclipse.

Many of you must have been feeling the dramatic shift of planetary energies a week before this highly charged full moon.This waning phase will last till partial solar eclipse when new moon will join Sun in the sign of Aquarius on 15th of February.

The period between the two eclipses is a very sensitive period.Its a period of dramatic and radical shifts in our consciousness due to sudden and unexpected events taking place around us.Take time out to get yourself indulge in spiritual and religious practices and meditation.These practices will help you align yourself with the cosmic energies well because eclipses darken our consciousness.

Don’t get panic at any unexpected issue arising out during these days.Truth will emerge on its own in the days to come.Just have faith that whatever happens happen for a good reason.Chaos will emerge into peace.Just be grounded and be positive.

Opposite to the sign of eclipse Cancer, Sun, Mercury and Venus are transiting in the sign of Capricorn and in the highly spiritual and sattvic nakshatra of Shravana.You will feel the transforming energy of this lunar eclipse in the houses owned by Cancer and Capricorn in your natal birth charts .

The planet of love, relationship and finances, Venus is sandwiched between Sun and Ketu.

Venus is like hemmed between the heat of the authoritative and egoistic Sun and fire of spiritual planet Ketu and is under combustion till 17th of Fabruary.

It is signalling a time of transformation in the areas related with Venus that are finances and relationships.

Since Sun and Venus are moving towards Ketu so time demands us to inculcate  some of the qualities of Ketu in our relationships during this time frame.Better to avoid yeilding authority in relationships otherwise you will loose your position of power.

This time demands us to change our old held approach and change our perspective a bit.

Handle issue intelligently and in a well composed down to earth manner with a humble approach.When storm comes it is advised to lower our head it saves us from severe injuries. 

Shravana falls in the sign Capricorn, a natural 10th house of status,power and achievements.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Shravana is ruled by the planet Moon.This constellation is related with spiritual attainment and it is  connected with Budha who received spiritual enlightment here under the sacred tree “Peepal”.

The symbol of this nakshatra is “Ear”and its ruling deity is “Vishnu”.It is the birth star of “Goddess of Saraswati”(Goddess of learning).Primary motivation of this asterm is Artha(wealth) and its tattwa (element) is vayu(air).

Capricorn is all about hard work and is practical and goal oriented sign ruled by the planet Saturn.Shravana ‘s lord is Moon.Here Moon’s nourishing nature becomes practical.

Vishnu is the preserver of this world and listens to the problems of all.This is the inherent nature of this nakshatra.Planets when come into this nakshatra they absorb this energy of listening and preserving the knowladge within themselves to be used later and modify their behaviour accordingly.

So apart from spiritualistic side it has a bit materialistic side too.

Ketu is a moksha karak planet.Presence of Ketu  along with Sun,Mercury and Venus here in shravana is emphasising more on listening and less on speaking.Better to gain knowladge and pay attention to your inner voice to grow and handle issues in your life.Ketu is the co lord of the sign Scorpio where its lord Mars is transiting in the nakshatra of Anuradha , a star of success.

Scorpio is a sign of deep investigation and research about hidden realm of your life.Mars gives initiative energy on outer material plane and can work as a best spy here.The co ruler of the sign Scorpio, Ketu helps gain wisdom and helps in inner transformation.

So it’s a time of taking a fresh start in solving old issues of your life by gathering information, paying attention to minute details and listening to the outer and inner voices in order to arrive at any definite conclusions and plan your strategy accordingly.

Its a time of strategic planned action based on the all the knowladge you gather through listening to the inner as well as outer voices in the areas of relationships about the matters related with the house ruled by Scorpio in your natal chart and these issues will be addressed in the house where sign Capricorn falls in your birth chart.

Curb your egoistic and authoritative nature.It won’t help you now.

Be humble and adopt mature and practical approach.Ketu negates taking orders from anyone.Both Saturn and Moon are associated with masses so the information you gained through listening and secret investigation can be used to influence masses or people around you.

Hardwork along with aligning your energies whole heartedly with the divine energies always pays.Make the best use of this time of Mars transit in Scorpio in the star of success and its co ruler Ketu’s presence in the birth star of Goddess of learning in the sign of Capricorn.Take the initiative and see yourself  how divine plan will be manifested and awaken the spiritual warrior within you.Success follows those who sincerely surrender their own will to the will of Almighty.

And the best way of surrendering to God is to act as time demands.The planetary shifts are the signals God sends us and only understandable to the one who willfully surrender their freewill and those enlightened pure souls who are His followers.

On 6th of February‘ Venus will enter in Aquarius sign, Sun on 13th and Mercury on 15th.All of these planets will be aspected by Mars from Scorpio,Jupiter from Libra and Saturn from Sagitarius.

The restrictive energy of Saturn,expansive energy of Jupiter and Energetic and protective energy of Planet of action Mars,all pointing towards a forward looking phase in our life with much hope and positivity in our lives in coming days.

After 19th February, Venus will be out of combustion.You will feel a bit relief in the matters of heart and finances.Plus by the end of this month Saturn too will come to close in its transit period in the dreaded nakshatra of Mula.

All you need is to keep a check on the excessive desire nature of Mars as there will be formation of ANGARAK YOG after 21st February till 25th February.

As I have mentioned some of its possible implication in my previous post of 16th of January 2018,that this combo can cause disastrous situations.So be cautious in taking any impulsive actions.

Note: Always study and compare transits with the planetary positions in your natal birth chart and your on going dashas to see how they will affect you.

The planet of karma Saturn has entered in the last pada of Mula nakshatra, in Cancer navamsha and will stay there till 2nd of March 2018.

As now we all know that Mula nakshatra falls in the dharmic sign of Sagitarius and is ruled by the planet Ketu.This star is related with deep investigation.Ketu is a moksha karak planet and here in Mula nakshatra deals with the past issues that are mostly secretive in nature or are hidden from our eyes and buried deep, so we have to go deep to find the truth.

As it is ruled by the goddess of Kali, who is often depicted as chopping off the heads of the demons, symbolising the need to open our eyes to the ignorant behavior of ours towards life in general, address our core belief systems and moral values and cut our cords with wordly desires that are destructive in nature.So it is a bringer of death and chaos.

It will bring out what we can least expect.But this nakshatra is not just associated with destruction and calamities but is a healing nakshatra too.

We can heal ourselves here.But as you know nothing comes for free.The price we pay here is usually very high.Enlightment always comes after we have gone through some sort of storms in our lives.These storms clear the way for the change to come.

So, get yourself prepared to welcome and embarace the change with the belief that it will be good for you in the long run.Though it will take time to accept the bitter truth/reality that will emerge suddenly.

Ketu can act on both lower  and higher plane depending upon the functioning of our mind.

If functioning on lower plane, can cause confusions and illusions and ultimately we become prone of committing silly mistakes about which we will regret later.But if it is working on higher plane(when we surrender everything to God,s will), it clears all the illusions from our mind and provides us with intuitive wisdom and alleviate us high on spiritual level.Rahu and Ketu are the projectors of our mind.Its up to us how we handle them.

Ketu can act like an angel and removes all the illusions if we proceed on the path of moksha, breaking all the chains that keep ourselve engaged in material desires and worldly achievements and can act like a demon if we disregard the spiritual path.It helps its devotees in need in sudden magical ways.Reversal of fortune is related with this nakshatra.

The Devta of Ketu is lord Ganesha who is remover of all the obstacles.It is a guardian of Muladhara chakra(base chakra) that resides at the base of spine.Both Ketu and Mula are connected with this chakra.It is very important to get entry past this chakra if you want to move on spiritual path.Kundalini or potential spiritual energy lies here.When kundalini energy is awakened we get access to the power of lord Ganesha.

Follow meditative techniques to activate this energy because it will help us on our spiritual journey.

Saturn entered in this nakshatra on 26th October,2017, Now it has entered in its last pada of cancer navamsha.The flow of energy has been different in each pada.Things that have been on hold will suddenly be brought to closure.With Ketu everything is sudden and since Saturn is here so enligjtment will come with a very heavy cost.Ketu and Saturn both are separative planets.Mula and Saturn both are linked with air element and Ketu is a fiery planet.

Air and fire energy in fiery sign Sagitarius the 9th house of kundali can bring about sad news of mass calamities.Fire and air is explosive. So will get the results quickly.Flow of energy has been different in each pada.But now both Saturn in Mula and Ketu in shravana have joined hands in the navamsha of Cancer.Cancer sign is ruled by Moon.

Its a very emotional and sensitive sign.Presence of Ketu and Saturn here will bring out the turbulent side of emotions.Agitated state of Mula will come out here.With Ketu everything is sudden and with Saturn mostly chaotic.Ketu Saturn will bring sudden explosive news that will be emotionally turbulent in nature and will effect our sense of security and emotional stability.We need to control our emotional reactions.Be patient let this phase pass.

Rahu is a giver and Ketu is where we get the pain.Rahu is our obsessive mentality and is placed opposite to Saturn/Ketu in navamsha.If we don’t open our eyes to the reality and follow the spiritual path no one will save us from the irreparable loss/pain caused by Rahu.

From tomorrow till 13th of february Mars will be vargottam.
Vargottam planet gain strength  because there is a good flow of energy from soul (navamsha d9) to this lifetime (lagna d1).

Mar’s energy in the 8th house of death and calamities aspected by melafic planet Rahu from Cancer can cause sudden chaos.Don’t take any hasty and impulsive action just because you heared any bad news and are feeling insecure.Avoid exercising control on others.Better to control your emotional responses.Don’t over react out of the fear of probable loss.

JO HONA HAI HO KER RAHAY GA!!.Just calm your mind and accept whatever comes out.Stop playing control control.

Sun will enter in DHANISHTHA nakshatra on 6th of February, a star of abundance,fame,wealth and worldly attainment.It combines the energies of Saturn,Mars and Sun.Sun,s placement here in Capricorn in 10th house of status and power in his friendly nakshatra will give boost to those enlightened souls who have been following Ketu,s path by being humble and modest and adapted well with the energies of shravana from the last month.They will reap the reward now provided they don’t exercise bossy behavior on others and by being egoistic.Let the time put a crown on your head for your patience and wise acts that you showed in difficult time.

Mercury is heading toward Ketu.It will bring quick shifts in our thinking with spiritual undertone for those enlightened souls who have been following wholeheartedly cosmic energies for a long time and for others confusion and loss of direction.On mundane level Saturn and Ketu combo in Cancer navamsha,vargottam Mars aspected by Rahu,and Mercury conjuction with Ketu in Shravana nakshatra,media can bring out some secret news or you can hear the news of some mass calamaties around the globe.

In short’many will fall  from grace and many will rise up.Ketu can do anything.It will be a period of endings for many and start of a new beginning for others.Everyone will reap what they sow.Justice will be done to all.

Since Cancer is a feminine sign and is psychic, intuitive, reflective, nurturing and healing in nature so Saturn in this pada can bring out the female healers out of hiding and into the light.Rahu,s placement in Cancer will expose many so called fake gurus too pretending to be spiritual healers.There will be sudden storm in calm water of Cancer.Everyone will get punished or rewarded as per one,s past karma.

Thanks

Past life Astrology: Decoding Life Purpose, Past life Karma and Destiny via D3 chart

Subject Analysis : Past life Astrology: Decoding Jagannath drekkana (D3), Destiny, Karma, Past birth karma, Karma Phala and Karma Yoga of current birth.

Re-Edited, Compiled and Analysed on 20th Jan 2018

Introduction

Understanding Past life astrology, Karma Phala, and Karma Yoga astrologically

Astrology says, 

“Avashyam anubhoktavyam kruta karma shubhashubham”

which means, one has to experience the effects of karma in any case whether it is part of good or bad actions.  Karma Phalas act like Newton’s third law of motion which clearly says that,

“To every Action, there is an equal and opposite reaction”. 

Karmaphala or the result of our actions equally works like newton third law of the motion and same are equally powerful, either we do good or bad karma in any birth or life. All our actions and work in society acts like an arrow shot. Once it is shot from the bow, there is no chance to recall it in any case. Karma Phala or cause or effects work in the same way, so everyone has to be very cautious and one should always think before any action.

Karmas are majorly classified into three major categories. Dridha, Adridha & Dridh-Adridha karmas or Uddishya, Anuddhishya & Uddishyanuddhishya karmas.

It means, intentional or willful karmas, un-intensional karmas & karmas done at any moment without any prior thought. whatever be the nature of karmas, results or karma phalas are bound to happen and no one can escape from it.

According to our Hindu philosophy, it is based on the Karma & reincarnation theory. Without understanding the twin theory of Karma and Re-incarnation no one can able to follow or decode divisional charts.

What is the Natal Chart all about?

Natal Chart is all about the Prarabdha Karmas  that we had performed in any many  of the birth and that we have to face in in this birth, where Planetary placements of Retrograde planets, Malefic in trik Bhavas, and affliction to the Karka planets via nodes shows what our major Prarabdha that we have to experience without getting any redemption from it, where as Fixed signs are more rigid in nature as there is no pran Vayu in fixed signs, where Dual signs are totally blessings of Vishnu and Chara rashis shows  the Blessings of creation or bramha.If we look deeply, Dharma Trikonas in the D1 chart shows what are our Total sanchit karmas of the past which has good karmic part bag in it from the total portion of the karma and that can come at any moment of the life in Dashas, Antar Dasha and in transits.
All the Divisional chart shows Root cause of the Past Karma and shows subtle reasoning behind any karma that what we had performed in past and also shows what we have to do in near future, whereas D9, D3, D10, and D60 are the root houses that exactly speaks about the Karma and portion of its phala from the past life.

Whereas, Drekkana (D3) and Navamsa (D9) are the, most important Divisional charts after Shashty-amsa chart in Vedic Astrological Strength system. Whereas, Drekkana / Dreshkana means a sign which is equally divided into three equal portions of the 10 degrees majorly in 1/3 of a sign equal to 10 degrees, which means there are three Drekkana in each sign rules nature of the Sign.

There are 4 Major Drekkana (D3) Charts, those are described in classical texts which are as follows:-

1. Parashara Drekkana2. Jagannath Drekkana

3. Somanath Drekkana

4. Privritti-traya Drekkana

Parashara Drekkana:

This is the most widely and commonly used Drekkana chart in Vedic astrology used for highlighting information on the siblings, talents, courage, valour, complexion, personality and trait of the native. Parashara Drekkana is used to know vital information on the sibling of a person and analyzing all matters related to co-borns and issues.

Jagannath Drekkana: 

 

This is Major Drekkana chart which gives deep-rooted information on karma and phala of the previous life of a person. This Chart should be used and analyzed along with the D-60.

Somnath Drekkana:

 

Somnath Drekkana is used to know about Hidden knowledge on the sexual drive of a native and it also used for analyzing attitude of a person towards the sexual matters and his libido.

Privritti-traya Drekkana: 

This  Drekkana chart is used for understanding initiatives and efforts of the person for achieving goals and motives.

Among all, Jagannath drekkana (D3) is a most important chart to know about the Karma Phala, Karma Yoga or fruits of your actions either from the Past life or for the current birth.Fruits of actions could come in any form or by anything, either in a form of relationships or in any activity we do in society but before going deep to understand Karama and its phala from Jagannath Drekkana, we must need to understand What is Karma Phala, Karma yoga, and fruits of our karma (Actions) we had done in any of birth.

First of all, we need to understand what is karam phala and how it is linked with our past life actions and karma phala.

Understanding Karma Phala, Work, and Modes of actions according to Bhagwad Geeta

 

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 2, Verse 47

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन |मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि || 47 ||

karmaṇy-evādhikāras te mā phaleṣhu kadāchanamā karma-phala-hetur bhūr mā te saṅgo ’stvakarmaṇi

Translation

BG 2.47: You have a right to perform your prescribed duties, but you are not entitled to the fruits of your actions. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, nor be attached to inaction.

Commentary by Swami Muktananda : 

This is an extremely popular verse of the Bhagavad Gita,  It offers deep insight into the proper spirit of work. The verse gives four primary instructions regarding the science of work:

1) Do your duty, but do not concern yourself with the results.

2) The fruits of your actions are not for your enjoyment.

3) Even while working, give up the pride of doership.

4) Do not be attached to inaction.

As per the Article Need, i am only Highlighting first part to understand The  meaning of Karam or actions or what is work in society :

Do your duty, but do not concern yourself with the results.

We have the right to do our duty, but the results are not dependent only upon our efforts. A number of factors come into play in determining the results—our efforts, destiny (our past karmas), the will of God, the efforts of others, the cumulative karmas of the people involved, the place and situation (a matter of luck), etc. Now if we become anxious for results, we will experience anxiety whenever they are not according to our expectations.

So Shree Krishna advises Arjun to give up concern for the results and instead focus solely on doing a good job.

The fact is that when we are unconcerned about the results, we are able to focus entirely on our efforts, and the result is even better than before.

In the Next Verse, Shiri Krishna is advocating about the necessity of the actions or work that we have to perform in any case that we cannot avoid or move away from it. 

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 18, Verse 11

 

न हि देहभृता शक्यं त्यक्तुं कर्माण्यशेषत: |
यस्तु कर्मफलत्यागी स त्यागीत्यभिधीयते || 11||

na hi deha-bhṛitā śhakyaṁ tyaktuṁ karmāṇy aśheṣhataḥ
yas tu karma-phala-tyāgī sa tyāgīty abhidhīyate

Translation

BG 18.11: For the embodied being, it is impossible to give up activities entirely. But those who relinquish the fruits of their actions are said to be truly renounced.

The explanation was given by Swami Mukundananda

Shree Krishna clearly saying that the state of complete inactivity is impossible for the embodied being.No, one can stay away from any sort of actions and work.one has to perform every sort of actions in any case. However, Shree Krishna states here that if one can give up attachment to the fruits of actions, it is considered perfect renunciation.

 

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 18, Verse 27

 

रागी कर्मफलप्रेप्सुर्लुब्धो हिंसात्मकोऽशुचि: |
हर्षशोकान्वित: कर्ता राजस: परिकीर्तित: || 27||

rāgī karma-phala-prepsur lubdho hinsātmako ‘śhuchiḥ
harṣha-śhokānvitaḥ kartā rājasaḥ parikīrtitaḥ

Translation

BG 18.27: The performer is considered in the mode of passion when he or she craves the fruits of the work, is covetous, violent-natured, impure, and moved by joy and sorrow.

The explanation was given by Swami Mukundananda

Karmas or work are described according to the nature of doer and categorized into three part majorly; Satvik, Rajasik, and Tamasik. The sāttvic workers are motivated by the desire for spiritual growth, the rājasic workers are deeply ambitious for materialistic enhancement. They do not realize that everything here is temporary and will have to be left behind one day. Agitated with immoderate rāg (desires of the mind and senses), they do not possess the purity of intention. They are convinced that the pleasure they seek is available in the things of the world. Hence, never satisfied by what comes their way, they are lubdhaḥ (greedy for more). When they see others succeeding or enjoying more than them, they become hinsātmakaḥ (enviously bent on injury). To fulfill their ends, they sometimes sacrifice morality and hence become aśhuchiḥ (impure). When their desires are fulfilled they become elated, and when they are daunted they get dejected. In this way, their lives become harṣha śhoka anvitaḥ (a mixture of delights and sorrows).

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 5, Verse 14

न कर्तृत्वं न कर्माणि लोकस्य सृजति प्रभु: |
न कर्मफलसंयोगं स्वभावस्तु प्रवर्तते || 14||

na kartṛitvaṁ na karmāṇi lokasya sṛijati prabhuḥ
na karma-phala-saṅyogaṁ svabhāvas tu pravartate

Translation

BG 5.14: Neither the sense of doership nor the nature of actions comes from God; nor does he create the fruits of actions. All this is enacted by the modes of material nature (guṇas).Commentary

The explanation was given by Swami Mukundananda
 
In above-mentioned verse, the word Prabhu has been used for God, to indicate that he is the Lord of the world. He is an omnipotent and controls the entire universe. He conducts the activities of the universe, he remains the non-doer. He is neither the director of our actions nor does he decree whether we will perform a particular virtuous or evil deed. Had he been our director, there would be no need for elaborate instructions on good and bad actions.
All the scriptures would have ended in three short sentences: 

“O souls, I am the director of all your works. So you do not need to understand what good or bad action is. I will make you do as I wish.”

Similarly, God is not responsible for our getting stuck with the sense of doership. If he had deliberately created the pride of doing in us, then again we could have blamed him for our misdoings. But the fact is that the soul brings this pride onto itself out of ignorance.

If the soul chooses to do away with the ignorance, then God helps dispel it with his grace.Thus, renunciation of the sense of doership is the responsibility of the soul. The body is constituted of the three modes of material nature, and all actions are performed by the modes. But out of ignorance, the soul identifies with the body and becomes implicated as the doer of actions, which are in fact done by material nature (verse 3.27).

Conclusion:

From all what we have found ultimate goal or motive of any soul is Self-realization from all sort of Karam yogas or spiritual paths, which are majorly discussed in the Bhagavadgita in most of the chapter and it is the only purpose why a soul is kept taking on birth and keep doing the Karma and experiencing the phala for same until and unless soul becomes totally purified from every sort of actions and causes. Astrologically, Jagannath Drekkena Chart along with Privritti-traya Drekkana is widely used to understand every sort of karma one has to perform in the material world.

Understanding Karma Yoga?
At the opening of the Third Chapter, Arjuna is confused by Krishna’s instructions in the previous chapter.

He has misconceived that Krishna’s telling him to control his senses and fix his mind and intelligence on the Supreme is incompatible with the performance of the action.

Therefore he questions why Krishna is requesting him to engage in warfare (1–2).

In response, Krishna explains karma-yoga, the performance of actions free from desire for selfish, fruitive gain and dedicated to the Supreme (Krishna) (3–35).

(Source: Speaking tree) 
Karma and Liberation:

Karma, or fruitive work, brings both material enjoyment and material suffering. Whether the results of the action are pleasant or unpleasant, however, they bind one to the bondage of repeated birth and death in the material world.

Krishna explains further that inaction is insufficient to save one from material reactions (and subsequent bondage to the material world).

By nature, everyone is forced to act. Even to maintain the physical body, one must work.

Therefore, one should work in a way that will not further entangle one in material bondage but will lead to ultimate liberation.

That art of work is karma-yoga; working and acting under the direction of the Supreme (Vishnu or Krishna) for His satisfaction.

(Source: Speaking tree)
Why sinful acts:

In the last section of this chapter, Arjuna asks,

“By what is one impelled to sinful acts, even unwillingly, as if engaged by force?” 

Krishna answers that it is lust (material desire) :

the “destroyer of knowledge and self-realization”, which incites sinful acts, and He prescribes the method to conquer it: sense regulation inspired by spiritual self-knowledge.

Understanding Karma Phala and Past life astrology
 
 
What is Drekkana and how Jagannath Drekkana is different from usual Drekkna chart?

In the Current article, we will study about the Jagannath Drekkana along with D1 and D9. Generally, D3 or Dresh-Kana, drekkana has a root connected with the word Darshan which means seeing or visualizing objects those are apparent and hidden in nature. Kana means the corner and in the astrological language, it speaks about the Trikonas or trine. Thus, the word  Drekkana represents the division where the sign, trine speaks about the Apparent and hidden personality, nature of the native chart.Mathematically, The Drekkana is1/3rd of the divisional chart and it has a deep link with the 3rd house, as the 3rd house is falling in the 8th from the 8th house which shows root connected with the 8th house.Generally, Drekkana is calculated by dividing each sign into 10-degree of segments. Planets those are falls, in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd division of each sign, are then placed in the Drekkana Chart in Trines ( the 1st, 5th or 9th ) from that sign. In every Drekkana chart, every sign is divided into 3 equal parts of 10 degrees each of which is known as Drekkana. The first Drekkana of every sign ( 0-10) would be of the same sign. the 2nd Drekkana ( 10-20) of every sign would fall in the 5th sign from it. The last Drekkana (20-30) of every sign would be fall in the 9th sign from it. When a sign is divided into three parts each of them constitutes a Drekkana.

The Jagannath Drekkana starts from the Movable sign in trine to the sign. For a movable sign, drekkana would start from the sign itself, for a fixed sign, drekkana would start from the 9th from the sign and for dual signs drekkana would  start from the 5th from the sign.Please follows below-mentioned Scheme for calculating Jagannath drekkana

 

Jagannath Drekkana Calculation 

For Predictive purpose, Jagannath Drekkana is used for understanding Deep-rooted karma phala those are results of the actions one’s soul has done in its previous birth and also speaks about the What soul has to do in current birth or to know about the sole purpose or what native has to do, in order to fulfil the task assigned to him or her by the divine master based on his previous birth karma.

Jagannath Drekkana works based on the tripod of life, i.e Lagana is seen for the physical body creation ruled by the Lord Bramh and the moon seen for the mind and the Sun seen for the Atma, soul). The body comes and goes in this world because of the karma we did and keep on uniting or exiting from the body, what matters is our actions which decide our birth and death.

Based on the one’s action when one is dying we see where one can go and in the same case when one takes birth we can see where one comes from, That Stoppage point shows the Loka where one goes and comes back in this body which decides on the time of the death and birth. Each planet and Sign decides at what loke one came from and one goes in.

Below is the chart for same:

At the time of death and Birth chart, we can find out the position of the sun and moon and their strength( lordship) and their placement  in the chart to see previous and future destiny of the soul.

1st Drekkana of each sign is called Karma Drekkana, 2nd is called Bhoga Drekkana and 3rd Drekkana is  Called Nasha Drekkana ruled by the Devarishi Narda,  Maharishi Agastya and Bramha Rishi Durvasa respectively.

Moveable signs represent Rajas Guna, Maushya and presiding diety is Lord Bramha and Rishi Durvasa. fixed signs represented by  Tamas Gunna, Rakashas Gana and Presiding deity is Lord Shiva and Maharishi Agastya and dual signs represented by Satva Guna, Deva Gana and presiding deity are Vishnu and Devarishi Narada.

1st Drekkana of Dual signs being karma drekkana represnted by devas and Maharishi narada.2nd Drekkana of moveable signs represents bhoga ruled by the lord shiva and person one born here should practise maximum displine to avoid fall from his dharma and karma.3rd Drekkana of fixed signs have raja guna ruled by the Lord Brahma and people born in this drekkana should live unattached life else they will keep on getting in birth and death cycles to reap their fruits of actions.

That what we had studied in the Karma theory and we called it as Karma yoga or the sole purpose of this birth.This is the only reason why Jagannath drekkaṇa is the most important divisional chart to understand the task assigned or life direction of the native for its success or failure, to understand all sort of fluctuation one may face in current birth.

Even it shows, what Native has brought back from the past life that one has to bear it or go through it in current birth. This can be understood in a way that what is the root cause of this birth actions as a result of the past karma done by the soul.It is more about understanding one’s Karma and actions related to self, for self-growth and self-evaluation and bearing pain or suffering for the next journey of the soul.

To understand one’s actions and karma phala of one, the focus is on the third house and its lord, it will speak more about the nature of the karma yoga and the phala connected with it.

 

Step 1: What you have to do

1) First, of all, we have to study or see the 3rd lord of the Natal chart which acts as Karyesa then see where the Karyesa is placed in the Jagannath Drekkana chart (D3) and which house does it lord.

2) The placement and houses lorded by the Karyesa of the D1  in D3 indicate what is the prime area where one has to go through it, it could also indicate one about its suffering or its redemption one can get from his past life karma.

3) Meanwhile, any Planet in 3rd house of the D3 Shows what native has to do in future for fulfilling the goals of life that have assigned to the native.

4) Placement of the 3rd lord of D3 shows what is the Karma Phala that one brought from the past life and also shows how he has to manifest or perform in this current birth, spiritually or materially if the 3rd house of the D3 is vacant.

 

Step 2: Check Tattava or nature of the Signs in D3 Chart

All the Chara Rashi’s shows – Bhu-loka (Earth)

All the Sthira Rashi’s shows – Bhuva-loka (Grahas or Dieties of the Solar System) 

All the Dual Sign shows – Swarga-Loka (Higher Gods and Deities)

Bhu-Loka (Chara Rashi) shows the earth and any planet in it show suffering due to bad karma one has done on earth in the previous life to someone. This also indicates that sufferings those are dynamic in nature and it can go and come on the journey of life during its Dashas, Bhukti, and Pratyantar dashas.Basically, it shows about Suffering those are temporary in nature and shall not carry forward till whole life.

Any Planet in the Sthira Rashi (Bhuva-Loka) shows sufferings that one gets via the anger or affliction of the planetary deity toward the native actions in the past life.

Any planet in the Dual Rashis (Swargaloka) shows that Gods or Higher Deities are not happy toward the native previous birth actions. It majorly shows the anger of the higher god toward the person and affliction is at the Nakashtra level (Health). Here, there is no redemption from such Sufferings and painful experiences. The motive could be lying in the eternal growth of the native or future spiritual manifestation of the soul.

Suffering one get at the Bhu-Loka is changeable and temporary in nature and we have to check it from the lagna level (Body- Tanu – Ascendant) in the form of other people, relationships and nature we might receive from them.It’s more like the influence on us via others (More it is like Rinanubandhan) who are closely associated with us.
Suffering one get at the Bhuva-Loka is at the Aatmic level (Soul realization, Sun Lagna)  and one might get in the form of  wealth, Finance, and Soul transformations those are all represented by the nature of sun (Sun Shows Wealth of any type i.e knowledge, Aatmic Gyan, Financial wealth, Wealth from Children’s, Name, Fame and Status etc). Wealth could be in any form as might also show one of the Punya of the past life too.
Suffering one get at the Swarga-Loka shows realization at the subconscious Level (Mind, ruled by Moon), it mostly indicates suffering one will face via mental actions, via Manan and it is mostly seen at the nakshatra level and majorly affects the health of the native and it is impossible to redeem in any case.
Now, Let’s understand Jagannath drekkena chart by Few example charts:
Chart 1: Author of the Article

Decoding Past Birth Root cause – Karma Phala

 

In the Above mentioned natal chart, Karyesa is mars being the 3rd lord in Aquarius Lagna, also being Chara Amatya-karka placed in the 8th house in Virgo Sign (Dual Sign) with lagnesha Saturn, also Atma-Karka, clearly shows that the native has born to explore, research and write about the hidden meaning of traditional knowledge (Jyotish, occult, and Mathematical Sciences) in a new shape or modern form with more technical, scientifical or analytical approach via writing down journals or research paper socially.As Both the Ak(Mars) and Amk (Saturn) are Retrograde in nature, this shows about the strong desire of the native from the past life to keep on exploring, researching and presenting the new idea about the traditional knowledge to the masses for their wellbeing in a more profound way astrologically.
Now, lets check in D3 chart, Mars being Amk and Karyesa is placed in the 4th house  with retro (Ak) Saturn in dual Sign of Virgo (Sign of Swarga-Loka),  having rashi drishti of Exalted Nodes from Gemini and Sagitarius sign  (Rahu and Ketu- shows  Deep rooted karmic Phala and also shows Technically sharp intellcual and Research oriented tendency) Shows that native is born for Serving (Saturn being Karka of Service and also Retrograde Ak – it is the deep desire of the native to serve other that native got from the previous birth) others via traditional learning and knowledge and decoding literature (Sign of Virgo – shows about Literatures, Generalism, Writing, Research or Journals or scholarly articles based on Scientific parameters) into new form in a more technical and scientifical way, as Retro Saturn (shows Strong Desire brought from the past life) being AK and Lagnesh of the Natal chart and also 9th lord of the D3 is conjoined with Karyesha Mars in dual sign sharing vargottam placement.This clearly shows hardcore passion and learning as Keryesa is sharing same vargottam sign placement in both D1 and D3 chart.
Here, Native soul purpose is very strong for future birth, that he has to serve others via his Technical, traditional knowledge and writing capability in Jyotish and occult.
 
But it also shows one will also suffer regarding his health matters and might feel issues in his work, routine job, and career matters.
As, Karyesha is in the dual sign – Swarga Loka, Higher god or deity is in anger state toward the native and there is no redemption from the suffering one might face in his life, as Karyesa Mars being Amk and Ak both are in the retrograde state.This clearly shows that regarding native has to face self-evaluation, self-experience and go through the phase of self-realization via his Work and passion and it might disturb his Mental, Physical health (Abdomen ruled by Virgo) and Career related issues.
As Karyesa  is 6th and 11th lord, 8th lord from the Karyesa (Virgo)  in the D3 chart (Suffering would be related to 6th (Routine job, Service and health) and 11th house (Financial gains) matters),So overall native will face issues regarding his health and career matters and one has to work hard and need to accept his destiny accordingly with no choice left, as there is no redemption given to the native.Here Remedies won’t work. Most important part is Virgo sign is native pakka Lagna Rashi too, that also shows matters related to health.
Karma Yoga of Future
For future actions or direction of the native, this chart shows strong karmic root and karma yoga in this life, and for that, we have to look for the 3rd house of d3 which is vacant.In that case, we have to look for placement of  3rd lord in the d3 chart.
In D3 chart, lord of the 3rd house is Sun who is placed in the 2nd house with the moon getting Rasi aspect from the Venus and Jupiter from 9th and 12th house, clearly shows one has to be responsible regarding 2nd house matters (Family Wealth, Values, Family Responsibility toward parents) and one has to be spiritually align toward higher path of Bhakti or eternal devotion, as both the sun (Ruled by the Para Vidya – it is knowledge of higher spirituality and divine path, lorded by the Sun, who is the natural atmakaraka) and moon (Apara Vidya – is the knowledge of the material realm and is lorded by the Moon who is natural ruler of the mind and shows resources) are involved here in the Sign of Cancer  (Sign of basic learning, education, and Bhakti experience) with the rasi aspect of Jupiter (all form of Non-material Knowledge, including Guru guidance, and teaching – shows all form of Shashtric knowledge those are spritually in nature including jyotisha – the light of ilumanting darkness) and Venus (Knowledge of those are governed by the Material things including healing, Mantric, Tantric or siddhis etc).
Conclusion:
This clearly shows that native has to learn, serve and Share his spiritual experience via Jyotish, Occult, and healing sciences after experiencing it by self and that would be his “Karma of the future Birth” to help, lift and guide others in a right direction via the modes of deep spiritual experiences and knowledge.For accomplishing this task native need to utilize his knowledge and learning in Jyotish and Healing sciences and later need to share it via the modes of technical writing and research Journals.
Chart 2: Swami Viveka-Nanda

 

In the chart of the Swami Viveka Nanda chart, the 3rd house of the Natal chart is ruled by two lords Rahu and Saturn and both Saturn and Rahu are somehow interconnected with each other. Saturn being (BK- Bharti Karka) is in the 10th house from the Sun (AK) with 8th lord Moon and Saturn is aspecting Rahu from the 3rd house that shows deep-rooted Karmic task assigned and given to Swami Viveka Nanda for the well-being of the society and mankind by Karma Yoga (Moon and Saturn in 10th – A yogi is born).
Saturn is all about studying deep-rooted karmas and experiencing and realizing deep karmic roots for uplifting those who are in need.

Its a good yoga of learning Karma and its pahla by self-realization and, as in Swami Vivekananda case Saturn being 3rd lord associated with the 8th lord moon, so it is all about finishing the task of past birth assigned to him for liberating many souls those are directionless or unguided from the present birth tasks.

karyesha (3rd lord of the D1) is Saturn is placed in the 6th house in Sthira Rashi of Taurus (Sign of Wealth, family & values). As Karyesha is placed in the fixed sign, Suffering is at the Bhuva-Loka , means one who realized at the Soul level, here Soul experiences are mainly ruled. it is about to learn at the Atmic level (Soul realization, Sun Lagna) and one gets in the form of wealth, Finance, and Soul transformations.Here Wealth could be in any form as might be one of the Punya of the past life too.

In Swami Vivekananda chart, Graha  (Planetary deity) is angry toward him and affliction is at the graha level and he will suffer on account of planetary anger.
In D3 chart Saturn (BK- shows Guru teaching for the karma yoga of future) is placed in the sign of Taurus (Wealth and family values)  with Moon (Amk –  Task given to him) and Mercury clearly shows Swami Vivekananda has to leave or sacrifice family life or follow the path of Moksha or liberation, or on account of his family wealth. This will happen only when he will meet his guru and he will realize his Soul purpose, as Saturn being Bk also lord of the 2nd and 3rd house in both D1 and D3 chart placed in the 6th house with Moon and Mercury. Swami will accomplish this task via self-learning, self-realizing it via Manan or practicing it via deep self-questioning or via meditation.
As in both D1 and D3 chart, Karyesha Saturn and other lord Rahu is placed in the sign of Pisces and Taurus getting Rashi aspect from Jupiter and Sun (Ak).
As 8th lord moon is involved here with Karyesha Saturn (BK), swami Viveka  Nanda will realise this life Karma-Yoga after meeting his divine guru who would be a Kali or Devi worshipper (Saturn is with Moon shows Devi worshipper or diety who illuminates one’s darkness from the soul and karma) and then he will realise his life goal or would understand his task given via his guru teaching, guidance and he will undetake this task Via mediation – Manan (Moon being ruled by the Apara Vidya and also Amk too, shows all form of  knolwedge one experience, realise or one get it via manan or via senses and it inculdes all the worldy knowledge in any art and science, including the knowledge of vedas, Vedanta, and Vedanga).

Apara Vidya encompasses the entire spectrum of ‘objects’, that is, anything that can be objectified by our senses or mind. Anything that can be ‘seen’ is an object of Apara Vidya. Under this category comes all our worldly knowledge’s. Science, arts, commerce, management, technical knowledge’s etc. Interestingly the teacher even classifies the knowledge of the Vedas and Vedanga’s in this category, because they are also a part of the limited & changing world in front of us. Apara Vidya is worth knowing because of various reasons. One, specialization in any one field of objective world, helps us to serve our society & world better, two, pursuit of knowledge disciplines our mind & intellect, so that we become capable of thinking deeply & properly, and last but not the least, this pursuit of Apara Vidya helps us to realize the ephemerality of the objective world, and thus helps us to get qualities of vairagya etc, and also motivates us to look out for something more permanent in this ever changing world. The objective of this categorization is to indicate to us that however much we may know the world outside, but by this pursuit alone we shall never move towards omniscience. Apara Vidya shall help us to make a living, have a dignified & respectable life, have a thoughtful intelligent mind, but never ever hope that you shall move towards omniscience. This is not the way for the fulfillment of such an aspiration.

This clearly shows swami Vivekananda eternal goal for this life is to awake people those who are misguided in the path of darkness to move toward balanced material and spiritual knowledge.

In D3 chart Karyesha is placed in the 6th house who is the ruler of 2nd and 3rd house shows swamiViveka-Nanda has to accomplish this  Karma yoga task via visiting to many places, communicating, via delivering the speeches, traveling or leaving his family life.

As Both Jupiter and Venus are Aspecting it from the 11th and the 2nd house from the D3 lagna via Rasi drishti. He has to do this task via learning and experiencing every sort of material and non material knowledge and he needs to travel across the globe  to deliver it in many of the forms, as sun being AK placed in the 8th from the Karyesha and lordship of the 8th from it, Jupiter also aspecting it shows that the, its a long lasting task assigned to him for the well being of the society till his conscious soul is alive.Its an Atmic task given to him for uplifting mankind.

I hope from above-mentioned example charts and understanding on Jagannarh Drekkana D3 chart, one can understand his karma yoga and find his soul purpose and able to do his destined karma yoga of the future life.

बहुमन्जिली इमारतें ऐक धोखा । बहुमन्जिली इमारतों में नहीं हो सकता वास्तु का प्रयोग

क्यों न करें बहुमन्जिली इमारतों में निवेश

By Alok Jagawat
(सम्भल कर करें निवेश । बहुमन्जिली इमारतों में नहीं हो सकता वास्तु का प्रयोग )

हमारे देश में आजकल बहुमन्जिली इमारतों का चलन है । इन इमारतों में निवेश से पहले कुछ बातें जान लेना आवश्यक है । बहुमन्जिली इमारतों का गणित कुछ इस प्रकार है । (I know this because I have been dealing with builders, architects and interior designers from past many years, these are facts)

शहर के बाहरी हिस्सों में बनीं इमारतें

१. Average cost of land in outer areas.

Rs 100 Rs/sq ft to Rs 1200 /sq ft (Depending on the fact that the land acquired is a farm land. Most of the deals are shady. Sometimes land is disputed or captured as well. Land is also bought from ST/SC community at very cheap prices. There is a law which prevents it, but there is a loop hole in this law as well. 
(Tradecraft includes forming a partnership firm)

2. Average cost of building is 250 Rs/sq ft to Rs 1200/sq ft. Builders do not use very good material in building. This is a very common practice. You can expect extreme changes in walls, bathrooms and fixtures from six months to one-year time. Biggest problems include falling POP roofs, water seams and clogging and paint loss.
Secondly, small time builders use pre-tailored plans in each plot which are re-used in every third project. So actually in reality it does not cost much. Big builders have hired architects and structural engineers.

So on an average a 900 sq ft flat will cost.

Cost of land: 500000.

Cost of bribery to State development authorities: 10,000 to 1,00000.

Cost of flat: 815000 becomes 870,000, If it is the ground floor. Building cost increases with height but again it is not that much.
Average selling price is near 150000 to 20,0000. This is from a single customer. On an average a five story building fetches 10 to 30 lakhs based on several variations.

Topping this, is the State development authorities, land Mafia and scores of other corrupt departments that only increase the cost of these flats.

Most of the builders are corrupt and prone to wrong doings and shady work. There are scores of pending cases against the builders which includes Unitech, Parshvanath and very big names in other cities. According to consumer disputes redressal commission, there has been a continuous increase in cases against builders from past many years. This is the proof of the debauchery and telltale claims of builders.

बहुमन्जिली इमारतों में नहीं हो सकता वास्तु का प्रयोग

वास्तु के मानद ग्रन्थों में बहुमन्जिली इमारतों का भी उल्लेख मिलता है । द्वीशाल व अन्य भवन का  उल्लेख तो कई ग्रन्थो में है परन्तु बहुमन्जिली इमारतों का उल्लेख कम ग्रन्थों है । पुरानी इमारतों में भी अधिक से अधिक दो या तीन ही मन्जिलें मिलती हैं, ज्यादा ऊचीं  इमारतों को बनाने के वास्तु ग्रन्थों में विशेष नियम  हैं ।

दो या तीन मन्जिलों वाली इमारतों में भी वास्तु के कडे नियम हैं और उन्हे कोई भी बिल्डर प्रयोग में नहीं लाता है । ज्यादातर बिल्डरों के दावे, की उन्की इमारतें वास्तु नियमों पर आधारित हैं, सत्य से परे हैं ।

अथ भूलम्बाह

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
गृहं व्यासेष्टहस्तान्तमेकभूमं प्रकारयेत ।

ततो दशदशर्ध्यन्तं क्रमवृध्द्या तलं न्यसेत । १४ ॥ 

वास्तुमण्ङनम्


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
The height of one floor should be equal to the eighth part of the perimeter. This accounts to very good height while most the floors in flats do not carry a height above 10 to 11 ft.

The sequence includes increasing the height of the later floors with 10 hastha parts each.

Further slokas indicates that two storied structure should be built for common man, three and four for Vaishyas and six for Kshatriyas and Brahmins.

I have studied the ancient structures in Old city of Jaipur which was built by the great Sthapathi Vidhyadhar. All structures which carry two or three floors have brahmasthana and proper entrance doors to the center of the structure.

Some vastu granthas consider tall structures to be very problematic and recommend it for kings only.

Mayamattam and Varahmihira have different opinion on same subject. Mayamattam calculates height of the building in comparison to foundation stone or last brick of the wall. Varah recommends height to be equivalent to the breadth of the sala.
The last dictum is being followed in old city of Jaipur.

बहुमन्जिली इमारतों में एक और समस्या है । इस तरह की इमारतें कबूतरों, मधुमक्खीयों आदी के रहने का स्थान बन जाती हैं। ये दोनो जीव अशुभ माने जाते हैं तथा सूनेपन का कारण बनते हैं ।

So in totality the investments in such building is not very useful until and unless somebody does not have enough money to buy a plot. Builders take advantage of this problem and sell their products through dubious lucrative offers.
