Vivah Prashna to know nature, timing of marriage and widowhood.

UDAY and ARUDA For Vivah Prashna


19th March 2017

12:14:53, JAIPUR. 26.55 LAT, 75.49 LONG

Uday lord is debilitated in tenth house with Venus. The lord of seventh house of marriage aspects the naisargik karka of Marriage “Venus”. Though Far way the lord of the Uday is Astangata or combust in Prasna.

It is uttarbhadra nakshatra in Vrishchika Navmansha. Shani is placed in seventh house and shani is malefic. Lord of the seventh house is placed in fourth in retrogression. Both Saturn and Jupiter are slow moving planets.

Jupiter is Badhakesh over here.

  • Lord of Aruda Joined to Venus is indication of success in marriage.
  • There is no malefic in the eighth house.
  • Moon and Mars are away from seventh house, which is good.
  • Mars is in sixth house from Moon. Husband quits the world in 9th year without any issue.
  • Moon and Mars are in Even and Odd signs. Therefore, the timing of marriage indicates delay.
  • The ascendant or Aruda is Odd sign but Neither Mars nor Moon aspect the ascendant, so marriage will be delayed.
  • 1,5,7,8,9 are mostly empty except seventh which has Saturn and Ketu in ninth. Both indicate minor troubles after marriage.
  • Mars is placed in Neech Navmansha, even Moon is debilitated in D-1 chart. This is not good sign for marital life.
  • Moon is debilitated in sixth and there is a malefic in seventh house from ascendant indicating widowhood of woman in 8th year of marriage

Seventh house lord and seventh house has dual signs. Dual signs rule the world of intelligence and wisdom. Saturn is placed in seventh house indicating that the person will be mature and tall in appearance. He will be qualified for finances or accounts related work. He might have whitish complexion.

He may also deal as consultant or trader.

As Venus is exalted in tenth house in dual sign and moon and Mars are in Movable and stable signs, the character of the to be spouse will not be very chaste. He might have indulged in inappropriate behaviors before marriage.


Since Moon is placed in Gemini in Dwadashansha (D-12) and seventh house lord is placed in Leo in D-9, Marriage will not take place till Jupiter enters Sagittarius.


Ketu is placed in ninth house, Navmansha lagna is weak and Aruda lord is debilitated with Moon in main chart, Which is not good for remedies. Though Aruda lord is aspected by Jupiter, Jupiter is Badhakesh over here.

Jupiter’s placement in fourth house also indicates that the native will suffer because of dosha from Kula devta. Jupiter indicates Peetambar deities Like Sri Krishna or Vishnu Avatars. It also indicates Guru. A reptile has created Ashudhi of image and the deity needs a cleaning Pooja.


Vedic Jyotish chart

The ascendant chart is having dual sign. The same is the case in Prashna chart. The lord of the seventh house is exalted with Moon but is aspected by the sixth house lord.

It is placed in 4th Pushyami in 4th Navmansha, which is enemy sign. It is having a direct aspect from debilitated sixth house lord (D-1) in D-9 chart.

Mars is placed in dual sign with Ketu having Venus in rear. Mars is placed in dual sign in D-9. A sure sign of two marriages.

The Prashna chart has similar configurations where Saturn and Jupiter are involved with seventh house. Marriage might get delayed as such.

Mars is placed in Pisces in D-9 and Saturn is placed in debilitation in next sign. Hence, the longevity of to be spouse is question in main chart as well.


For remedies to work the native needs to perform Saptashuddhi poojas for Kula devta. On further enquiry the native told me that her Kuladevta is Sri Krishna only and there is an image of the deity in her paternal village.

She was told to perform Saptashuddhi of the idol in her village.

Thereafter a “Ghat Vivah” needs to be performed by the native.

For longevity of the spouse a “Mahamrityoonjay Homam” should be performed for the spouse after marriage.

Unfolding the lives by art of Prashna

Unfolding lives,The art of Prashna
 Badhakesh: Guru, Hora Lord: Buddha, uday: Karkat, Arootha: Gemini
The art of prashna is based on twin fold path of mathematical ability and a quick and subtle decipher of the situation in hand. The better we are in this art, the better is our analysis.
It off course requires a lot of experience and learning as well without which it does not work well.
The ancient chakra over here, carries rashi in innermost circle, the next carries nakshtras and padas and the final chakra is navmansha chakra. The small ganesha idol in Karkat rashi represents Uday, the brown kowri  represents the arootha sign. The planets are represented by gemstones. (The dark reddish one in karkat is Rahu and the next which is in duo tones is Gulikan). This ancient chakra is very useful as it gives a full picture in single glance.
In this case arootha and uday are 2/12 in position which indicates deva kopa. Remedies in this matter requires regular medicine. It is like chronical disease which requires a treatment like chemotherapy. A disprin will not bring any relief to the native in question. The prashna lord is in eleventh house. This indicates that the question is related to gains, property etc. The lord of badha aspects Buddha so there is a badha. Guru indicates divine curse, agyana (dosha of fifth house), curse of brahmins etc. So Jupiter is the badha. Mars the lord of the sixth house aspects Mercury in eleventh indicating that the person also suffers from debts and court cases.
There is Venus in the lagna, which is the depositor of badha lord. This carries an aspect from eighth house lord. Relationship with wife will be strained because of her nature and impassive approach to conjugal happiness (because of Saturn).
The story;
The man in question was a contractor for digging and blasting. He was suffering from debts and court cases. When I enquired about Guru (Jupiter), there were two incidents that indicated troubles. Guru the elder brother died in an accident. (He was fit and fine).
A person who was his partner has one of his relative working as Godman. The same person was cheating and did many wrong things to this native. The godmen was like a Guru to the person in question. When he informed his so called Guru about the modus operandi of his relative, the Guru got angry. Though he did not showed his anger, but he must have known about the cheating been done by his own relative.
This Godman is a tantric (Mars+ Ketu) and according to the questioner he must have done something against him.
He did not have any cordial relations with his wife as well.
He was worried about money and problems.
All these things were already present in prashna and can be seen.
He was told to visit Guru- Dwara or places where Guru resides.
He was also told to take his wife to a certain temple because she was suffering from some negative influence.
A donation of food to poor people on every Amavasya was also required.
These remedies have to be done regularly. An advice to keep his thinking straight was also shared.

Prashna of Sexual orientation,Distressed parents and Stree Shrapa

Aruddha: Aquarius
HL: Buddha
BL: Venus
Navmansha Uday is chandra rashi of native, so Prashna is correct.
Arudha is Chatra, Nothing is hidden. The questioner is going to reveal everything.
Prashna : The question was asked for a young female and question was asked by Parents.
A sheershodayi rashi is rising in Arudha and its lord is placed in upchaya. Saturn is placed in Dhanu so question concerns a jeeva and we are already aware of that. As Saturn is lord so there is a question related to career.
HL lord is Mercury in retrograde position just four degrees away from Venus. The sign is Scorpio. It is a hidden sign in a drishya Bhaga. Therefore, something hidden from others is visible to others. So what is it? I was wondering when I saw the Prashna.
Mercury the mind is perturbed because of a female or in short, the female in question has a problem with her sexual orientation. Venus is afflicted with Gulikan indicating that the female (the other one) is afflicted by some invisible power and she had a considerable influence on the female in question.
Therefore, the parents of this questioner were troubled by the sexual orientation of their daughter. This was confirmed as I asked them these questions. Please note that it is more on a mental level and causing troubles to everyone in family.
This is confirmed as Venus the trouble giver is sitting in rear position to Mercury.
Mercury also indicates that the question is also related to education.
Moon is placed in Tula with Mars in rear. This indicates mother asking the question troubled by hard headed (Mars) behavior of daughter who has committed some sin in past (Rahu). This atleast was a sin in her mother’s eyes.
I checked original horoscope but I cannot find any yogas related to this kind of behavior. Specially like Saturn Venus positions and Mars Venus positions in d-9 and D-3 chart. Still I was sure about my deductions.
So I started the conversation with the parents by telling them that you are here for three questions that concern your daughter.
  1. Career.
  2. Her sexual orientation and relations with other female.
  3. Education or higher education.
All three questions were 100% correct and I was stunned by accuracy of Jyotisa Vidhya.
This Prashna indicates that there is a Stree Shrapa or curse to the family causing all these troubles to this native. The ninth house is afflicted in her natal chart indicating that the curse has originated from father’s side or ancestors giving rise to such thinking pattern.
Her original chart confirmed that she is hot headed and does not listen easily. She has a Mars Venus aspect her Navmansha chart (natal) where Mars (The male quality) is predominant over female quality. Venus is debilitated in her natal chart. Unfortunately, I cannot share her birth details or natal chart.
Venus in natal chart is afflicted by Mandi as in Prashna chart. Remedies were suggested for removing the stree Shrapa.

Surya Sankranti and Effects of transit of Sun in Libra in October 2019


What is Surya Sankranti 

Surya Sankranti means entering of Sun from one sign to the another which signifies major changes in the course of the sun in the heaven for signifying major changes occurring in nature.

According to the Hindu Muhurata System, 16 ghatis or 6 hours 24 minutes before or after the Solar Ingress (Surya Sankranti) which falls on every month in different signs should be avoided for starting any new work, as in Hindu Panchanga system it is known for surya sankramana, When Sun god travels to different zodiac signs of the Brahmanda corresponding with different regions of the earth for changing seasons or welcoming new change in nature or bringing change in weather systems and also invoking new energies linked with the signs in the form of an electromagnetic impulses which directly hits the body.

Its the phase when solar energies are immensely powerful for bringing change in nature which are not harmonical for human (Body is not capable to adapt solar energies) well being or for beginning of any new works, as per Hindu Panchanga but it is considered as good for worshiping and doing certain spiritual and religious rituals especially worshiping of different shiva forms (Rudra; as Surya is karka of Aatma and the Pratayadi Devta of the Surya is Shiva. Surya gives vitality and strength to both the Soul and body and also works for purification of both) or one can do meditate with nature to get align with electromagnetic vibrations of the solar energies which we get from both the sun and the sign ( Sign is a combination of stars- source of energies). Solar ingress in zodiac sign marks for the beginning of the change in nature and few hours before and after are immensely powerful for mantra Jaap , Worshiping and certain spiritual rites as they do the work of purification of your Atma and Jeeva shudhi.

Sankranti falls on Monday or Sunday should be chosen for Jal Abhishek for Atma, Shareera and Mana shudhi to discharge your negative electrical charge or ions from the body. This is the reason why our Maharishis were so scientific and sync with nature for the formation of any new principals of Jyotish.

Impact of  Sun Transit on Libra ( Tula Surya Sankranti ) on India and general mass.

With the ingress of Surya Sankranti on Tula Rashi, the winter season has triggered or initiated which indicates that the sun has moved toward the southern sphere of the earth which we in the Vedic period called as dakashinayan period of Surya or Sharad Sampat period. As this Surya Sankranti triggered on the conjunction of Vara of Thursday – Friday around midnight from 11 pm to 1 am in Chitra nakshatra it is called as Mandakini Sankranti , it will give medium results and there will be happiness around kingdom and people those are living in it ( people those are living in western states and the globe) . This Sankranti falls on the Chitra nakshatra so people who are living around Karnataka, Bangalore, western states of India, eastern states and those of northern states will experience rainfall and good weather. As sun has conjugated with mercury and Venus, Mars is falling in 12th from it and Jupiter is falling in 2nd it northern hemisphere and northern states of India will experience cold waves, early snowfall and rainfall and weather will be good from now onward and it will trigger early winter in northern hemisphere and there are many chances that northern states of India those are living close to hills and mountain will experience early snowfall . As this Surya Sankranti triggered in night time after the sunset it will be considered as good it will favour ruling nation and Kingdom, it will restrict all sort of anti-national activities and people those are doing activities against the nation will be punished or get sentenced. It will control all the anti-national social activities and many of those people will experience sentences soon. As this Sankranti ingressed on libra sign and rainfall, the storm has triggered in northern states there are many chances that north of India will experience excessive rainfall in the winter season, there will be chances of any incident with respect to fire, bomb blast and chances of loss on Monterey gains of people living in the north.

If we look out the panchang during Tula Sankranti balava karna was rising it indicates as slept Sankranti and it is considered as good for weather and vegetables, it will increase the production and trade of vegetables, fruits and paddy. All eatables natural products prices will get stable and will be easily available in the market.

Balava vehicle is lion, and it indicates revolt creating political leaders those who keep on opposing the ruling party policies and procedures, the direction is west and it impacts the younger teenage girls, will create hurdles in Students those are going in school and collages. As Surya transited in Dahan Nadi in Chitra nakshatra ruling lord is Mangal so the possibility of fire incident will be possible.

For general mass one should do meditation, worship lord Shiva Mrityunjaya form to get a blissful and happy life, as Surya Sankranti shows the period of transition and filtering the soul silence, meditation and worshipping is must for the whole day.

The Greatness of Saturn Part 2 – How Gravitational and Magnetic field effects human being

Effects of Gravitational and Magnetic field based on Vedas and Scriptures 

Although Saturn is much larger than the Earth, it’s surface gravity is only a little more than the surface gravity on Earth. This is only because of Saturn is made up of mostly gases part and is not solid like Earth.
Now the question is why Saturn has such massive gravity though it is made up of gaseous structure? What contributes to all this Saturn gravity?. The element-wise core structure of Saturn is largely comprised of hydrogen and helium, which came together at the beginning of the Solar System, gathered by their mutual mass. It’s the same composition as Jupiter and the Sun have. These primordial elements were formed at the beginning of the Universe in the Big Bang if we see modern assessment but in Hindu cosmology, Saturn celestial structure and origin has a different story.This shows that the Same power which is present on Sun is also present in rest of planets too including Saturn.It’s the same force which keeps on pulling every planet to each other which the sun has.
What is that Power? Is it a Magnetic Shield or the magnetic force of attraction which we called gravity or something else? Let’s understand first, What is mentioned in Scriptures about Gravity or force of attraction, that keep on attracting every other planet in the solar system with fixed boundaries. Science has named this force of attraction -The Gravitational force of planets. 

What is Gravitational Force of Planets

“Vaishesika Sutra” discusses the role of Gravity Deeply for every object present in this solar system or in celestial sphere and can help us in understanding how planets affect us either by aspect or by stronger magnetic attraction. everything is accountable in understanding that gravitational force:


The Same thing has been explained by Bhaskaracharya on Surya Siddhanta around 400 AD;


“Vaishesika Sutra”  describes that in the absence of conjunction (In an action) falling results due to Gravity.

संयोगभावे गुरुत्वात्पतनम (V.S. 5.1.7)

In the absence of conjunction (Gurutvat) (is a process , defines the action or an instance of two or more events or things occurring at the same point in time or space.) falling results from Gravity.Which means something that makes progress, movement, or achieving something difficult or impossible is the process of Impediment responsible for Gurutvat.
Thus it clearly recognizes objects fall downward due to Gravity.
Sutra 5.1.8 States that due to the absence of a particular molecular motion there arises no upward or side-ward motion in any object causes to fall down.

Why does an object throw in air fall after some time? 

Then Vaishesika Sutra discusses the role of Gravity in falling of moving objects. It gives through the analogy of arrow. First, it gives mechanism of arrow projection in Sutra 5.1.17
नोदनाद्यभिषोः कर्म तत्कर्मकारिताच्च संस्कारादुत्तरं तथोत्तरमुत्तरं च 
The first action of the arrow is from impulse; the next is resultant energy produced by the first action, and similarly the next to next.


Then it explains why it falls in next Sutra.



संस्काराभावे गुरुत्वात्पतनम (V.S. 5.1.18)
In the absence of resultant/propulsive energy generated by the action, falling results from Gravity.
Thus from the above Sutras, we can acknowledge that Vaisheshika Sutra clearly discusses Gravity. It uses the word “Gurutwa” which is also used in present time to represent Gravity. Gurutwa in ancient understanding means force which arises due to mass.

Text from Rig Veda 10.22.14 also says that

“This earth is devoid of hands and legs, yet it moves ahead. All the objects over the earth also move with it. It moves around the sun.”

In this mantra,

Kshaa = Earth (refer Nigantu 1.1) Ahastaa = without hands Apadee = without legs Vardhat = moves ahead Shushnam Pari = Around the sun Pradakshinit = revolves and further Rig Veda 10.149.1 also says that by which force  earth and rest of planetary structure is attracted toward the sun;


“The sun has tied Earth and other planets through attraction and moves them around itself as if a trainer moves newly trained horses around itself holding their reins.”
In this mantra,
Savita = Sun Yantraih = through reins Prithiveem = Earth Aramnaat = Ties Dyaam Andahat = Other planets in sky as well Atoorte = Unbreakable Baddham = Holds Ashwam Iv Adhukshat = Like horses

There is clear text about GRAVITATIONAL FORCE mentioned in Rig Veda 8.12.28

“O Indra! by putting forth your mighty rays, which possess the qualities of gravitation and attraction-illumination and motion – keep up the entire universe in order through the Power of your attraction.”

Rig Veda 1.6.5 and Rig Veda 8.12.30 Says,

“O God, You have created this Sun. You possess infinite power. You are upholding the sun and other spheres and render them steadfast by your power of attraction.”

Yajur Veda 33.43 Says, 

“The sun moves in its own orbit in space taking along with itself the mortal bodies like earth through force of attraction.”

Rig Veda 1.35.9 Says, 

The sun moves in its own orbit but holding earth and other heavenly bodies in a manner that they do not collide with each other through force of attraction.”

Rig Veda 1.164.13 further says that,

“Sun moves in its orbit which itself is moving. Earth and other bodies move around the sun due to the force of attraction, because the sun is heavier than them”.
Atharva Veda 4.11.1 Says,
“The sun has held the earth and other planets”
From all Rig Vedic Sutras, we can confirm that Due to Sun pulling Force every planet is dire to attached and attracted toward him by a unique magnetic force and by the same force all these planets are affecting us with some sort of Planetary attraction in the form of Cosmic rays.
As we are born with the same elements those Sun and rest of planetary structure are made of, Having on their surface, the same magnetic force keeps pulling us and influencing our mental makeup, the state of mind and power of discretion in every day to day karmas. Thus Celestial bodies including Saturn does have a bigger role in our life.
“There are suns in all directions, the night sky being full of them.” (Rig Veda)”

“Blue Sky is Nothing but scattered sunlight (Markandeya Purana 78.8)”


Now  ! We have understood it well, what is gravity and how different planets are well connected with the sun and its gravitational force and why because of that every planet keeps affecting us. Now, The next question is what makes the Saturn Aspects are So special in influencing our karmic actions ?. As in this portion, we have studied the Saturn mathematical and astronomical aspect. In the next portion, we will try to understand how our Puranic ancient stories are well connected with the planetary aspects and structure. we will try to figure out deep answers lie in the Puranic stories those are connected with the Saturn Evolution time.For understanding Saturn aspects part in a predictive way via natal chart , click below on continue:

How to Unlock your Pending karma’s of past life from the natal chart- Part 1

According to the Vedic astrology system, astrology closely linked with the past lives accumulated karmas which get manifested in the present life Whereas karakas of the pending karmas are Saturn, Rahu/Ketu, and Ketu is mainly seen for moksha, detachment, and rejection in this life regarding material prosperity. Rahu is mainly seen for all sort of desires that are pending from the past life and Saturn is majorly seen for all sort of karmas, either it is ongoing, collected from past or it is form of new karmas whereas nodes are seen for the dispense of dynamic karmas when their transits and Dasha’s get active.

Our Scriptures has mentioned various such doshas that are mentioned in BPHS. Though in the current article we will not discuss reasons for curses or debts. our motive is to decode the reasons for pending karmas by various techniques via natal chart. some of those doshas or curses mentioned in BPHS are as mentioned below :

1) Curses of snakes: This curse is indicated by the placement and strength of the Rahu in the natal chart. Effects of this curse give childlessness, fear from snakes and snake bites. This curse originates due to the killing of snakes in past lives. Root house for this curse is to been seen from the 5th house.

1) Curses of father: This curse is indicated by the placement and strength of the Sun in the horoscope which gets triggered in the natal chart due to wrongs done to father or due to the suffering of souls of forefathers. It gives issues of childlessness, uneasy relationships with father in the current life, untimely death of father and lack of happiness from father. To understand this curse or debt one has to see 5th, 9th and 10th house.

3) Curses of mother: This curse is indicated by the placement and strength of the Moon in the natal chart. This may happen due to ill-treatment with mother in past life. It gives issues of childlessness, problematic relationship with mother in the current life, unhappiness from mother, the untimely death of the mother. We have to see the Influences on the 4th, 5th house and moon with nodes to understand the curse.

4) Curses of brother: According to the Vedic astrology this curse has to be seen from the placement and strength or weakness of mars and Jupiter.whereas for younger brother planet Mars has to be seen and Jupiter for elder brother.Though in Nadi we see elder brother via Saturn. It gives problem in childlessness, difficult relationship with brothers, problems from brothers and lack of cordial relations with brother. To understand the curse we need to decode the placement of 3rd, 11th and 5th house along with affliction on Mars and Jupiter either via nodes or via Saturn.

5) Curses of maternal relations: For maternal relations, we need to check affliction on mercury and Saturn. It will give difficult relationship with maternal relations and we need to check affliction on 5th house and mercury, Saturn.

6) Curses of Spiritual Persons: To see curse of spiritual person we need to see affliction on Jupiter. It majorly gives problem in childlessness, problems from teachers, unhappiness, slow growth in life, stuck life, and general dissatisfaction in life, etc. We need to see the affliction on the 9th and 5th house along with Jupiter and their lordship condition.

7) Curses of the wife (or women): To see the curse or debt from females or wife one has to see the condition of the planet Venus. Any affliction on the planet venus via Nodes, Saturn or mars have majorly seen for the activation of the curse. The placement of Venus in the natal and divisional chart is important to understand the curse. It majorly gives effect problem in childlessness, difficulty in getting married, problems from wife or women, the possibility of divorce, defamation from women, etc. The most important house to be considered is the 7th house/lord.

8) Curses of Evil spirits: To see curse from the evil Spirits we need to see the planetary placement of the Rahu and Ketu in the natal chart. Generally, Role of the Nodes and Bhadhaka Graha, their lord and placement have key roles in identifying the curse from the evil spirits. It gives major problem in mental setup of the native, it gives fear from unknown and majorly fear of ghosts. we need to see the conditions of Moon, Saturn, the 5th house and the fifth lord in the natal chart along with Bhadhaka Graha and lord.

Techniques to Unlock the Pending Karma’s from the birth chart

In the next section, we will discuss the major techniques used to identify the pending karma from the natal lets decoding the secrets of past life but first, we need to understand the concept of karma, reincarnation and the cycle of karma.

Lord Sri Krishna said in ‘The Bhagawad Gita’,
” vasamsi jirnani yatha vihaya navani grhnati naro ‘paranitatha sarirani vihaya jirnany anyani samyati navani dehi “
As a man, casting off worn-out garments takes new ones, so the dweller in the body, casting off worn-out bodies, enters into others that are new”. He has also said, “The misdeeds of our past lives torment us in the form of illnesses or ailments”

Explanation Given By Yogananda on the above Verse :

During our daily lives, we change our old and/or dirty clothes and put on new and/or clean clothes whenever the need arises. Similarly, the soul or atman casts off its worn-out physical body and takes residence in a newer physical body at regular intervals in time. Just like the clothes that we wear do not represent the real state of our physical body, the state of our physical body (which deteriorates over time and is hence impermanent) does not represent the truly unchangeable and permanent nature of the soul that resides within it.

The eternal does not move from place to place but the embodied soul moves from one abode to another. It takes birth each time and gathers to itself a mind, life and body formed out of the materials of nature according to its past evolution, karma, deed and its needs for the future. The psychic being is the vijnana which supports the triple manifestation of the body, life, and mind. When the gross physical body falls away, the vital and mental sheaths still remain as the vehicle of the soul. Rebirth is the law of nature. There is an objective connection between the various forms of life. “Like corn, a mortal ripens and like corn is he born again”.

(Katha Upanisad, Ch 1, verse 6)
(The Bhagvad Geeta by Swami Yogananda)

This verse refers to the doctrine of reincarnation in Hinduism. Death is described here as the simple discarding of a worn-out garment for a new one. When the body becomes diseased and old, the ever-lasting soul forsakes it for a new disguise. Death is but a change of attire in an uninterrupted continuity of immortality.

How to Clear Debts



Although there is none another such way to understand the past birth Debts or underlying karma process and what soul has gone through in last birth and what it will bring to the new birth. God way and process of management and operations are way beyond our imagination to understand how life and souls cycle is moving around Birth and death cycle.

We are biologically a very small electrically charged energies residing in a physical bodies having limitation to the material world, our reach and understanding life cycle in a simple plain language is not an easy task. Unless and until we are able to develop our Kundalini Shakti via deep Spiritual penance unless we can’t understand how the soul’s deeper roots karmic accounts are connected with life and death cycle.

Neither we are Yogic Person nor we are born as a Godly soul having extraordinary sensory abilities to experience futuristic visions or dream and able to understand for what purpose we took birth but yes there are certain methods via we can understand how our this life is connected with the past birth Karma’s, Rinas, and curses ( Unfinished Karmas).

One of the common methods is Understanding past life impressions via Regression therapy and other is having Extraordinary astrological knowledge on studying Past Birth Astrological cases via various Astrological charts and tools by a different branch of jyotish but astrologer must be well experienced in collecting and analyzing different life experiences with natal charts.

If you are seeking a detailed guidance regarding deep understanding on Life Purpose, Spiritual awakening, Spiritual Learning, Understanding past lives curses, debts and past birth karmic sufferings, then you need to understand the deeper karmic connections which are linked with debts and pending and decode it we need to understand methodologies used for decoding Past birth rina and curses for better understanding on karma and moving toward right Spiritual.

Although, Tracing Pending karma from a natal chart is always a tough job, as many people carry those karmas from immediate last birth or some of them carrying from many of past journeys. These are hard to trace combinations. Below are few observations which I have studied from many of the charts for Pending karmas and found true and working in many of the cases.

Technique 1 :

A) Check the number of Retrograde planets in the Natal chart:  Look for the presence of a number of retrograde planets in the chart. Total number of Presence of Retrograde planets in the Natal chart shows how many pending karmas one has to exhaust in this birth. More the Retrograde planets more the total pending karmas one has to finish in this life i.e if one has a presence of 3 retrograde planets, then it means one has accumulated 3 pending karmas from many of the past journies. Each of the Retrograde planet shows, karma connected with the karakas of the planets. To see what exactly the karma is pending with the native, check the placement of the Retrograde planets in the natal chart, check, in which sign planet is placed and how many planets are aspecting it. Sign shows sufferings or delays may face in this birth and aspects show via whom you may face such hurdles, difficulties, and hurdles in this life. Dispositer lord placement of the Retrograde planet in the natal chart shows what you need to do in this life in order to fix the pending karma. To see what exactly is the pending karma retrograde planet is indicating that one has to finish in this birth or giving a clue for certain area of life, check its 12th house placement from the retrograde planet, that house placement will show the area where one has to experience the pending karma that one has to finish. for e.g if one has retrograde planet placed in the 9th house then it means pending karma is either with the guru, teacher or father and one has to experience it in this life via 8th house matter which is the 12th house placement from the 9th. 8th shows sufferings, health issues, hurdles and unknown troubles in life. now let us understand more by different planetary examples how we can judge it :
1) If Mars is retrograde, and if it is connected with the Lagna or trik Bhavas ( i.e 6th, 8th or 12th house/lord) – There will be intense Pending karmas connected with Brothers, enemies, Husband ( In Nadi), fights, Legal battles, Land, Houses, War, bravery, Kings, and Kshatriya etc. To see what exactly the karma is pending with, check the placement of the Retrograde mars in which sign and how many planets are aspecting it.
2) If Saturn is Retrograde – and if it is connected with the Lagna and trik bhavas – Then there will be deep Pending Karmas connected one’s own action in the society i,e with Karam, Actions, work, Career, debts, sins, deeds, workers, social circle, Society, Land, agriculture, and Mass, etc.
3) If Jupiter is Retrograde – then one has Pending Karmas connected with the Spiritual Guru, teacher or father he has met in the past life, or it is with the Teacher, Knowledge he has learned in past, or it is connected with one’s Learning, or there might be a karma connected with the Brahmin, Gurukul and it is the karma given by the god to finish it in this life etc. if it is connected to the trik bhavas then one has to Experience it in any case via serving people. If it is connected with the Upachaya and Dharma Bhavas then one may get success via it and one will do service to the people in the right manner for uplifting own self and other also.
4) If it is Venus – then one has pending karma connected with his wife, sister, relationships and one has to give to his Wife, Spouse, Girlfriend, elder sister and one may face hardships or some karmic debt or pending karma with respect to Relationships, wealth, luxury and majorly with the wife or lover he or she may face or experience. If the conjunction is with Sun, Nodes, Mars and Saturn, AK then the Severity would be intense and it can give hard lessons in relationships or marriage. Many a case it gives hardships, struggles in Wealth, Luxury and comfort matters. Even it gives an indication with the concerned people those are connected with the karka of Venus i.e sister in law etc. Start of pending karma depends on the Lordship of the venus in Natal chart Mool trikona rashi, that house shows the event that can trigger the past karma i,e if Venus is lord of 9th house ( then event trigger after when one starts its higher learning or enter in any institution or society).The same way you can check for other planets as well

Technique 2 : 

B)  Check where the Bhrigu Bindu is placed in the natal chart, the sign, planet placed in it and its lord shows what sort of karma is pending in this birth and whom it is pending and how one can finish it. If BB is placed in the 10th house then one may have pending karma with the society or with the environment where he works or with the colleagues he works in society. whenever any major planet like Jupiter, Rahu/Ketu and Saturn transit on this point; BB, native experience major shift in his destiny in that particular year till that Transit is active  with respect to that sign and house placement during particular years and same way vimshotri and Chara dasha of the BB lord point shows major shift one can experience in one’s destiny during their. We will explain the concept of Bhrigu Bindu in detail in the next part with an example chart.

Technique 3 : 

C) Check the house Placement and sign of the 3rd house and its lord ( Karyesha) in the natal and D3 chart ( Jaganath Drekkana) it shows your karma one is born with to fulfill in this birth by doing certain actions and karmas in the society. As 3rd house is the house of actions and initiatives done by the jeeva, and it is also directly opposite to the 9th house which shows your Past birth, father and the Bhagya, it shows your Free will (Force of karma that one perform against his destiny)  and in broader sense it will show your must-have actions or karmas that you need to perform in this birth to unlock the future karma or actions one need require in this current birth.

Technique 4 : 

D) Check the 6th house, Sign, planets placed in this house and its lord in the natal chart to decode the Shadripus one has to cross in this birth in order to achieve the purpose of this life. This house, planets placed in it and its lord shows what is the pending karma of this life that must be finish in order to finish or cross this life cycle barrier and reach to next life. For e.g if one has sign libra in the 6th house and there is no planet placed in the house then we have to see where 6th house lord is placed. that placement shows what sort of blockage one is experiencing in this birth  with respect to that particular house placement. If we take current Example, venus is 6th lord and if it is placed in the 10th house in Aquarius sign then one may experience a problem in his career or profession because of his relationships with the female members in his office environment or one can face problem in his career via his wife  or one face hurdle in his career life or performing certain karma in society due to the properties of the venus i.e problems via females, wife, wealth etc.

Technique 5 : 

E) Check Placement and Sign aspect of Saturn and Rahu in the natal chart, shows what is the Major karma that needs to work on it in current life and if both the planets make a relation to each other or some Sambandha in a way by Mutual Aspects, conjunctions then one need to first finish this house karma in order to grow or progress in this life. for e.g Saturn is placed in 8th house and Rahu is placed in the 5th house , As Saturn is aspecting 5th house by 10th aspect then one needs to finish the pending karma wrt to 5th house matters i.e Bhakti, Stability of the chitta ( Mind) affairs, romance, children’s and basic education etc.

Note : These Pending karmas one has to exhaust in any case without any delay or without escaping point from it, Dashas, Ad, and Pd of all these retrograde planets play the main role in turning life into a major transformative events and one has to finish it in any case by experiencing it and all these planets play a major role in transforming inner conscious (Spiritual instinct) of the native. Either they teach a hard lesson or one totally get spiritual in these dasha periods.

Technique 6 :

Karma from D9 and Divisional charts :
There are also few other pending Karmas which are very intense and one cannot avoid it and those are presence in the form of curses and Karmic point. All these intense karmas one has to seen from the D9, D3, D30 and D60 chart. Whereas Planetry conjunction with either North node or south nodes in D9 shows the Deep and very intense karmas which were long pending from many of the birth and native is trying to avoid it or carry forwarding to many of birth from long via some divine help, guru blessings or Good Deeds.
As, Rahu-Ketu shows Sudden karmic point whereas Saturn shows karma that one has to improve it in this birth with own efforts and actions. Rahu-Ketu karmas have come in the form of mundane and physical sufferings and karma of Saturn comes in the form of Learning and lessons.
i.e If Rahu is placed with Venus in d9 chart – One had deep, Sudden and intense karma connected with either wife or girlfriend, Relationships (Extra or pre-marital physical relations) , some karma connected with lady love or with women whom he loves in past birth that can give either intense suffering or one may learn a hard lessons after marriage or it can starts when one person get involved in any relationship.
If Sun is with Rahu, then one may play a deep and intense relationship with Father or fatherly figure people, this conjunction can activate a Pitru curse in chart when Sun is involved with either 5th or 9th lord in D1 chart and it is in conjunction in d9 chart. this can activate it either after marriage or when some joins Job or he or she do bad deeds to any of fatherly figure native.
If Moon is with Rahu – then it gives deep and intense emotional sufferings via Mother, mother in law or eldest sister or via suffering intensely in an emotional bond. this could be very intense when the moon is lord of 4th house in d1 and same time if it is lord of 7th lord in d9. then it can get activate after marriage.
same we can check for Planetary conjunction with Ketu that shows Long pending karma connected with the past birth that one is avoiding from many of the birth. Ketu shows what is left behind, one’s rejections that have to experience and what is you have to finish in this birth to grow yourself spiritually. Ketu is a planet of detachment so here suffering and the lesson is connected in the form of detachment and one may face lots of detachment via karaka of the planet as native may have given sufferings or detachment to someone in that past birth in any of the form

Other Pending karmas are seen from the D3, D30 and  D60 chart that shows the karma of immediate last birth, that one has to face or experience in this birth that we will cover in the 2nd part of this article with example charts. It could be seen in these above mentioned divisional charts when karka of any of planet is connected with Mars, Saturn and nodes in D3, D30 and D60 chart, those having lordship with the 6th, 8th, 12th or Lagna in the D1 chart.D3 chart majorly shows about the Bott past and future karma native has to experience i.e what is the soul goal of the native or what one has to experience in this birth due to the good and Bad deeds done via the native. whereas D30 chart shows about the Suffering one has to experience in this birth because of his weaknesses, shadripus, sins and past debts.

I hope people would have enjoyed this article reading it and people will try to apply in their chart to understand it more deeply with the example charts. In the 2nd part, we will try to explain each and every technique with example charts of people those have experienced their destiny and past karmas astrologically.

Reincarnation and Astrology : Decoding Past Life of Shanti Devi


Article Written and Researched By

Sumanta Ghosal

Life Reincarnation is mainly a vedic philosophical concept that an aspect of living being starts a new life in a different physical body after each bio-logical death. It is a central point of vedic literature. Then other Indian religions such as Buddhism, Jainism and Shikh follows this concept.

But today I am going tfo discuss regarding Reincarnation and Astrology. We all know the twin beliefs of Karma and Reincarnation are among Hinduism many jewels of knowledge. Karma literally means “deed or act”, but more broadly it describes the pinciple of cause and effect. Simply stated Karma is a law of action and reaction which governs conscioussness. In metaphysics, Karma is the law that states that every mental, emotional and physical act, no matter how insignificant, is projected out into yhe physic mind substance and eventually returns to the individual with equal impact.

In ‘Bhagvad Gita’ Lord Shree Krishna says to Arjuna –

“वासाांसस जीर्ाासि यथा सवहाय
िवासि गह्णृ ासि िरोऽपरासर् ।
िथा शरीरासर् सवहाय जीर्ाा
न्यन्यासि सांयासि िवासि देही ॥” – Chapter 2, verse 22

It means during our day to day liles we change our old and dirty cloths and take a new/clean cloths whenever we need. Similarly, the Souls or Aatman costs off its worn out physical body at regular intervals of time. Soul is immortal but the physical body is mortal.

This sloka or verse refers to the doctrine of Reincarnation in Vedic philosophy. Death is described here as the simple process of a worn out garmentsfor a new one. Death is nothing but a chage attire in an uninterrupted continuity of immortality. In ‘Bhagvad Gita’, chapter number 2, verse number 23 Lord Krishna states to Arjuna-

“ििै ां सिन्दसन्ि शस्त्रासर् ििै ां दहसि पावकः ।
ि चिै ां क्लेदयन््यापो ि शोषयसि मारुिः ॥”

Lord Krishna states Aatman can not be harmed by weapons- and since it is formless and shapeless – it can not be cut into pieces by any instruments. In the same way, fire can not burn it or destroy it. Water can not wet it because water can act only elements which have physical description or dimensions. For the same reason, wind can not dry it or exert any force on it. Thus the Aatman is beyond the influence of all three primary forces which can affect entities having physical form and description.


But today I am going to discuss regarding the relation between Astrology and Reincarnation. We all know Astrology is nothing but a celestial map of our previous births deeds. Our previous deeds or Karma decides our fate in this existance. By grace and blessings of my Ishtadev Lord Shiva, I am able to collect some birth datas of those people who can remember their previous births. I have collected those datas from various books and internet. I am thankful to them.Astrologically speaking a person’s natal chart does contain indicators for knowing the past and future births.

In a classic astrology book named Phaladeepika, we come to know how to predict past and future births. The author of this book is Manteswara, in the 14th chapter there comes information on astrological pointers to know previous and future births. According to Phaladeepika, the 9th house holds the key.

If 9th lord in natal chart is exalted, the previous birth was in a high society of good people. If 9th lord in natal chart is in debility or in enemy’s sign, the previous birth was in a different country. If 9th lord is in his own house or in a freind’s house, the previous birth was in the same country where the person belongs (Manteswara states Bharat Varsha/India).

In such cases, if 9th lord happens to be Jupiter, the person was born in Aryavarta (Himalayas Vindhyas area).

If 9th lord happens to be Venus or Moon, the person was born near sacred rivers such as Ganga,
Narmada, Kavery etc.

If 9th lord happens to be Mercury, the person was born near places of God like Lord Vishnu or Lord

If 9th lord happens to be Saturn, the person was born in meleccha desha- outside of India or where
Vedic culture is not prevailed.

If 9th lord happens to be Sun, the person was born in a place of forests or mountains.

If 9th lord happens to be Mars, the person was born in places where living was difficult.

To detect future birth we judge 5th lord carefully. To detect future birth same rules are applicable as
mentioned above. But here 5th lord should be judged instead of 9th lord.

Now we have to judge what kind of birth we spent during last birth and what kind of birth we will spend in future birth- whether as plant life or animal life.

According to Vedic philosophy the souls are born in four forms- as Devas, Human, Animals and Plant life.

Manteshwaraclearly states in his book Phaladeepika regarding this :

If the 9th lord is placed in Bhustadhaya rashi which is fixed sign also, the previous birth was that of same Vegetarian.

If the 9th lord is placed in Seershadhaya rashi which is movable sign also, the previous birth was that of same living being, either animal or man.

If the 9th lord is placed in exaltation sign or own house or friend’s house of the lagna lord, the previous
birth was that of a human being.

If the 9th lord is placed in neutral sign of the lagna lord, the previous birth was that of an animal.
If the 9th lord is placed in enemy sign of the lagna lord, the previous birth was that of a bird.

To detect future birth judge 5th lord in the same way as mentioned above.

These are the rules given by the famous astrologer Manteswara in his monumental book named –

We get some more clues regarding past and future births from “Brihat Jataka”- by Varahamihira.

According to Varahamihira, Jupiter,Moon and Venus, Sun and Mars, Saturn and Mercury bring people from Devloka, Pitriloka, Tiryagloka and Narakloka. respectively.

We have to judge first who is powerful among Sun and Moon is rashi chart. We have to choose the powerful one and see its position in Drekkana chart. The lord of that house signifies the key of previous birth.

In such a lord in D3 is Jupiter, it signifies that the person was in Devaloka before his birth on earth.

If such a lord is Moon or Venus then that person was in Pitriloka before his birth on earth.

If such a lord in D3 is Sun or Mars then that person was in Tiryaloka before his birth on earth.

If such a lord in D3 is Mercury or Saturn then that person was in Narakloka before his birth on earth.

To detect future birth take 8th lord and see the D3 chart where 8th lord occupies. The lord of the 3rd
house of 8th lord signifies future birth of native.

If such lord is exalted or in benefic position, then we come to this conclusion that person has enjoyed high status in that loka. If it is opposite then reversed result is indicated.

Now I am going to discuss on some case histories regarding this. I have collected these case histories from some books and internet. At the end of my article I will mention regarding this.

1. Shanti Devi and Ms Lugdi devi –

In Delhi, a little girl was born named Shanti. She was born on 11th december, 1926 at 13:48 pm. She gave an elaborate description about her past life. Common public were astonished having heard her statements. In her previous birth she was known as Ms Lugdi, died on 4th october 1925 during delivery of her third child. All of her statements were verified carefully by respected and educated persons including Mahatma Gandhi. Shanti Devi never married due to fear of pregnancy.

A) Chart of Lugdi Devi –

D.O.B- 18.01.1902, T.O.B- 10 AM, P.O.B- Mathura (U.P)

She died in Moon dasha-Rahu antardasha.This is Lugdi Devi’s chart who died at the time of delivery. She was born as Shanti Devi in her future birth.

Now Let’s examine her chart. Her 5th lord as well as 8th lord is Mercury. We all know 5th lord is indicator of future birth. 5th house lord Mercury occupies in 12th house in Capricorn. Capricorn is Saturn’s house. Saturn here lagna lord also. 5th lord Mercury is occupied in 12th house which is friend’s house of Mercury.

It denotes that native’s future birth will be as human. As we know Manteshwara states in his book ‘Phaladeepika’ – that if 9th or 5th lord isin own house or in a friend’s house then previous and future birth forms as human being and in same country.

Here Lugdi’s 5th lord Mercuryis in 12th house that means Saturn’s house which isher lagnesh also. Saturn’s friend is Mercury. So Lugdi Devi’s future birth would be as human being in same country that is India. Lugdi Devi reincarnated as Shanti Devi in her future birth. Lugdi Devi’s 5th lord Mercury occupies in venus navamsha. Venus occupies in lagna, Venus indicates sacred river such as Ganga, Yamuna, Kaveri etc. Lugdi Devi born as Shanti Devi in her future birth in Delhi where sacred Yamuna river exists.

Now I am going to discuss on Shanti Devi’s birth chart who was Lugdi Devi in previous birth. Born in Rahu mahadasha and Mercury antardasha.

Shanti Devi known as Lugdi Devi in her previous birth. Shanti Devi’s 9th lord is Mars, occupied in own house, aries. As per Manteshwara’s ‘Phaladeepika’- If 9th lord is in own house or in friend’s house, previous birth was as human being in same country. We know Lugdi Devi is born as Shanti Devi in Mathura. Mars is in Moon navamsa. Moon denotes sacred river such as Ganga, Yamuna etc. Mathura is near to sacred river Yamuna.

Notes: –

i) We observe that Lugdi’s ascendant was kumbha where Shanti Devi’s (incarnation of Lugdi Devi) ascendant is Meen, 2nd house of Kumbha. It means where Lugdi ended her life journey from there Shanti Devi started her journey again in a different physical body.

ii) Lugdi died in Moon dasha and Rahu antardasha. Shanti devi was born in Rahu mahadasha and Mercury antardasha.

2. Another case study of reincarnation is Rampratap Singh. Rampratap Singh was born in 10th january at 10:30 am in Delhi. He could remember his previous birth. According to him, he was born in same family where he is born in this birth. He died by an accident took place on 6th february 1983. In his previous birth he was born 30th december 1958 at 8:55 pm, Delhi. Now I am going to analyse his previous birth chart and his this existance birth chart.

Previous birth of Rampratap Singh

D.O.B- 30.12.1958, T.O.B- 08:55 PM, P.O.B- Delhi

This is the birth chart of Rampratap Singh’s previous existence. Let us analyse this. 5th lord denotes future birth. Here 5th lord occupies in 10th house in Aries sign which is Mars own sign. According to Manteshwara, If 5th lord is in own house or in a friend’s house, future birth will be as human being in same country. In his next birth the native born in same country and same city.

Now we will discuss his present birth chart. In his previous birth he died on 6th february 1983. And the
native born as Rampratap Singh on -10th january 1984 at 10:30 am in Delhi.

He was born in Saturn dasha aand mars antardasha.

His 9th lord Venus and 10th lord Mars interchanges house. So no malefic results will be occured. Venus is in star of Mercury. Mercury is friend of Saturn and Venus. So it indicates Rampratap Singh’s previous birth was as human being in a same country, same city. As his Lagna is in even sign and as his ascendant is in moon’s hora, Rampratap Singh is born in same family where he was born in his previous birth.

Case Study number- 3

Another rebirth case study I am going to mention here. The name of this person is Pooran Singh. He was born on 9th december 1968 at 4:10 am, Kapurthala.This person can remember his previous birth.

According to him he was born on 19th november 1929 at 6:26 pm at Moga and died on 19th may 1966 by an accident.

Pooran Singh’s previous birth chart-

He died in 19th may 1966 in Saturn dasha and Mercury antardasha.

From 5th lord we judge future birth. 5th lord Mercury is in 6th house Libra which is Venus sign. Venus is lagnesh and 6th lord also. Mercury and Venus are mutual friends of each other. In famous astrological book ‘Phaladeepika’, Manteshwara states that if 5th lord is occupied in own house or friend house then native’s future birth will be as human being and he will born in same country and same region. Hence all the combinations are fulfilled. After death the native is born as Pooran Singh at Kapurthala. Kapurthala and Moga’s distance is not so far. Both places are under Punjab state. Now i am going to analyse his present birth chart.

Pooran Singh

D.O.B- 09.12.1968, T.O.B- 4:10 AM, P.O.B- Kapurthala

Born in Saturn dasha and Mercury antardasha.From 9th house we denotes previous birth. 9th lord is Mercury occupies in 2nd house Scorpio with Sun and Mercury both are in Jyestha star which is Mercury Star. Mars is in Virgo which is Mercury’s house.So Mercury and Mars both interchanges each others house. Mercury’s signification is prime here. As a result we come to this conclusion that native was born in human being in his previous birth in same

Note:- In his previous birth he died in Saturn dasha and mercury antardasha. In his present birth he was born in same dasha and antardasha. Soul has just changed new mortal body. Soul’s evaluation is continuously going on.In his previous birth chart ascendant was Taurus that is Venus sign. In this present birth he is born under Libra ascendant which is Venus sign too.

In Shashta Kanda of Mahabharat, Lord Shiva explains to Goddess Parvati: –

“Tasmajjatismara loke jayante Badhshanyukta
Tesha Vivardhatam sangya swapanvat sa pranashyati
Parlokashya chesitatve moodhanam karanam tuidam “

It means when a person who dies suddenly somewhere and is born again suddenly, his old habits and samskaars may remain for some time. But as they grow up, their old memories disappear like dreams.In this way birth and death cycle is going on. It will never be ended until soul get salvation or moksha.

Thats why Adi Shankaracharya states-

“Punaropi Jananam Punaropi maranam, punoropi janani jathare shyanam
Tha samsare khalu dustare – kripayapare pahi murae.”

It means we take birth again and again and die again anad again, sleep again and again in the womb of
mother. The world is so difficult place to stay. Oh God! rescue me from all this anad give me salvation.

Kala Sarpa Yoga & Education as per nadi astrology

ॐ श्री गुरुभ्यो नमः
With the Blessings of Acharya Madhva,my Kula Devatha,my Ishta Devatha and my Nadi Guru Shri R.G.Rao,I would like to explain about Kala Sarpa Yoga & education in Nadi Astrology.
We know as per traditional Astrology,Kala Sarpa Yoga is formed by the placement of all planets within Rahu-Ketu axis.Some scholars mention about 12 types of Kala Sarpa Yoga based on different positions of Kala Sarpa Yoga from Lagna.In some books it is mentioned that if Rahu /Ketu is placed with 5th/9th house lord or with Kendra Lords,then it gives sudden Raja Yoga during the Dasa/Antar Dasa of such planets.Except this condition,other placements of planets within Rahu-Ketu axis are termed as bad with difficulties in life.In such ancient books,it is also mentioned that if all the planets are within Rahu-Ketu axis then it is called as Kala Sarpa Yoga and if all the planets are within Ketu-Rahu axis,then it is called as Kalamrita Yoga.Anyhow both Yogas are termed bad and the native will experience difficulties in his/her life.But if any one planet has more longitude than Rahu/Ketu ,then it breaks Kala Sarpa Yoga.
But in Rao’s system of Nadi Astrology,we are not considering any Lagna.Instead we consider all the planets within Rahu-Ketu or Ketu-Rahu axis for Kala Sarpa Yoga.But to have such kind of Kala Sarpa Yoga,the planets must be related to Rahu or Ketu ie.,from Rahu,there must be a planet in the 2nd,3rd,4th,5th,6th 7th from him.Similar is the case from Ketu also.
Now I was doing some research on this from past 15 years and about 13 years before I got a client and she wants her son’s education line has to be analysed she sent an email regarding this on March,6th,2006.When my client called me for this analysis,her son was studying in 6th standard.But when I saw his chart,I got surprised as all the planets are hemmed between Ketu-Rahu axis but I found the most important planets Jiva Karaka,Atma Karaka and Karma Karaka are in such a strong place,nothing bad will happen to him in his education or his future life ,rather he will get reward during his studies.
Now let us study his chart in detail. This is a male chart and was born in a western country.Now look at the Rahu-Ketu axis,and there are no planets at all and all the planets are within Ketu-Rahu axis.Even Chandra who is with Rahu is in the clutches of Rahu.

As both Ketu and Rahu are retrograding,from Ketu,the 2nd house is occupied by Shani and Shukra in Kumbha Rashi,Kuja and Budha ( R ) is Makara Rashi,Surya + Guru in Dhanu Rashi in 4th house from Ketu and finally Chandra in 7th house from Ketu.Let me keep the Jiva Karaka Guru aside and analyse from Rahu.Rahu is with Chandra,the Karaka for mother.Rahu is in trine to Vidya Karaka Budha ( R ) and Kuja,the Karaka for skills.Also from Ketu,both Budha ( R ) and Kuja are in 11th house.When Ketu is involved with Karaka for education,it is directly related to hospital as Ketu is in 12th house if we consider natural zodiac.Now both Dhanu Rashi and Meena Rashi are lorded by Guru and he is placed in his Moola Trikona Sthana of Guru along with Surya.So here Surya also becomes more stronger by associating with Guru and both will have a connection with Ketu.This is simply because both Rashis are lorded by Guru,so Surya + Guru + Ketu are in conjunction.Now Rahu with Chandra are in trine to Kuja + Budha (R) in Makara Rashi.Now Chandra is blood circulation,Rahu is poisonous medicines ( which we call as allopathic medicines ) ,Kuja is blood ,Shastra Karaka and skills through the hands and,Budha,the intelligence.Here as Budha ( R) is aspecting its previous house of Dhanu Rashi he becomes associated with both Surya + Guru.Thus Budha ( R) becomes more stronger.So I predicted to his mother that he will study medicines but he will move towards East or South-East from where he is born.I also told his mother that he is a genius boy and will get rewards during his studies.As the planets involved are mainly Surya + Guru  ( East direction ) and Kuja + Budha ( R) ( South direction ) and as all these planets are within Ketu-Rahu axis,he will move out of the country where he is born and move to a country where Sanatana Dharma is in existence which is none other than our Hindustan.His mother got surprised and said to me that they don’t have any plan to migrate back to India.But I said after looking to the planetary transits,all will move to India and he will study in India only.
Ketu is the planet representing hospitals placed in Meena Rashi which is also called as Devaloka whose Lord Guru is in his Moola Trikona Rashi of Dhanu.With Guru,there is Surya and Budha ( R) in Makara Rashi whom we have to consider from his previous house of Dhanu Rashi.So he has a combination of Guru + Surya+ Budha ( R ) + Ketu.This kind of planetary combination indicates a Vedic place which is India itself.There are no planets in Rahu-Ketu axis which clearly tells us that the native will move out of his birth country when progressed Jiva Karaka Guru touches Rahu + Chandra which was his 10-11th year and it was decided by the fate to contact me to do the analysis of this native boy.It was 31st of May 2006 and she called me when I was in Kuwait,that they are moving back to India and also to Bangalore.Let us look at the planetary configurations on this day.
Now look at the transit Rahu-Ketu axis.Rahu was in Meena Rashi and Ketu was in Kanya Rashi which is just opposite in his natal chart.In his natal chart,Jiva Karaka Guru + Pitru Karaka Surya are in Dhanu Rashi,so we can conclude that transit Rahu has a link with his natal Guru + Surya which clearly indicates that this male native along with his father will move to India.Also please look at the longitude of natal Jiva Karaka Guru which is Dhanu 8 Degrees 33’ and transit Rahu was at Meen Rashi 7 Degrees 3’,which means Rahu is forcing Jiva Karaka Guru to move from the place of birth.Also if we check his progressed Jiva Karaka Guru,it will be in Kanya Rashi and Chandra + Rahu are posited there.Chandra means movement and Rahu means foreign country,so a complete change of Rahu-Ketu alignment over his Chandra + Rahu indicates he will be migrated to India where Kanya Rashi indicates southern direction.His natal Rahu has a Drishti on Simha Rashi as he will be moving to his next Rashi and natal Guru + Surya are in trine to this east directioned Rashi.So it becomes South-East direction from where he was born.


After moving to India and Bangalore,the mother of the male native called me around 4 years before that as I predicted her son got admission into Medical sciences.She also told me that the CET board has given 3 options to choose the medical college.She asked me whether it is possible to predict to which medical college her son will join.I said “ the native’s Vidya Karaka Budha’s placement is in Makara Rashi 9 Degs.56’ along with exalted Kuja who is in Makara 10 Degs.21’But there is no Graha Yuddha as Budha is retrograde.This Budha ( R ) + Kuja are in trine to Chandra + Rahu in Kanya Rashi.Budha (R ) is connected to Dhanu Rashi where both Guru + Surya are placed.Also in Guru’s another Rashi of Meen,there is Ketu,so a combination of Guru + Surya +Budha ( R )+ Ketu has taken place.Now Ketu in Meen Rashi lorded by Guru indicates the institution must be a religious one and as Budha ( R ) with Guru + Surya are in Dhanu Rashi,the medical institute must have a statue of a Guru in front of the college.After this prediction,mother and son both went to all the 3 institutes and one institute called KEMS Medical College has the statue of Shri Raghavendra Swami Ji of Mantralaya and both were very happy about my analysis and took admission there and completed his medical studies.As Surya is very strong in the chart along with Guru in his Moola Trikona Sthana,I told his mother that your son is a genius one and will complete the studies before the time and he will be rewarded by a prestigious institution.When his 3rd year of Medical studies completed,the F.R.C.S in London invited him along with his parents for a special speech by the native.The professors and students there got stunned by his speech and awarded him with a special certificate and told that his M.D.studies will be sponsored by them if it is in London or anywhere in the world.So he completed his M.B.B.S.this year with a very high ranking.


Then he sit for the entrance exam.for M.D.Now recently his mother contacted me and asked me which kind of higher studies he can do and where ? Here is my analysis and answer.In the whole chart,both Guru and Surya are powerful and out of that Surya is most powerful and he is the karaka for children ( male ) and in opposite direction ( West ),there are Shukra + Shani.As Shukra is with Shani,Shukra becomes also very powerful as he is going to enter the Rashi of his exaltation. Shukra is the Karaka for female children.So I told the mother that her son will go for M.D. in Pediatrics and mother said as he got into Pediatrics.Now again the question of selection of Medical College.Here now both Guru +Surya+ Budha ( R ) are in east direction and both Shukra + Shani are in Kumbha Rashi in West Direction.Shukra indicates as per Sanskrit Kama and Shani indicates ancient and Surya indicates eyes.Ketu in linking with Shani indicates that the place where this native has to study is a very ancient one and a famous Kama + Akshi ie., Kamakshi Temple is there which is none other than Kanchipuram.His mother got completely surprised and asked me that such secrets also can be told as per Nadi Astrology and I replied yes but for that Tarka ( Logic ) and intuition from Ishta Devatha is required.So as per my analysis the male native is going to Kanchipuram Medical Institute for Pediatrics.
The above is only a real life example to show that we can predict many secrets through Rao’s  System of Nadi Astrology.

Decoding Bhakti Yoga as per nadi astrology in Acharya Srila Prabhupada birth chart

       By H.Ramadas Rao
ॐ श्री गुरुभ्यो नमः
With the Blessings of my Kula Guru Acharya Madhva, my Kula Devatha, My Ishta Devatha and Nadi Guru Shri R.G.Rao,I am going to write about BHAKTI YOGA as per NADI ASTROLOGY principles. To explain this I have taken the chart of Shri Prabhupada.
What is Bhakti Yoga?
There is a small chapter stresses the super-excellence of the path of loving devotion over all other types of spiritual practices.  It begins with Arjun asking Shree Krishna whom He considers more perfect in Yog—those who are devoted to the personal form of God or those who worship the formless Brahman.  Shree Krishna responds by declaring that both paths lead to God-realization.  However, He regards the devotees of His personal form as the best yogis.  He explains that meditation on the impersonal unmanifest aspect of God is full of tribulations and is exceedingly difficult for embodied beings.  But devotees of the personal form, with their consciousness, merged in Him and all their actions dedicated to Him, are swiftly delivered from the cycle of life and death.  Shree Krishna thus asks Arjun to surrender his intellect to Him, and fix his mind in exclusive loving devotion on Him alone.
Below mentioned verse explained in chapter 12 clearly explains about it
Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 12, Verse 3-4

ये त्वक्षरमनिर्देश्यमव्यक्तं पर्युपासते |
सर्वत्रगमचिन्त्यञ्च कूटस्थमचलन्ध्रुवम् || 3||
सन्नियम्येन्द्रियग्रामं सर्वत्र समबुद्धय: |
ते प्राप्नुवन्ति मामेव सर्वभूतहिते रता: || 4||

ye tv akṣharam anirdeśhyam avyaktaṁ paryupāsate
sarvatra-gam achintyañcha kūṭa-stham achalandhruvam
sanniyamyendriya-grāmaṁ sarvatra sama-buddhayaḥ
te prāpnuvanti mām eva sarva-bhūta-hite ratāḥ


BG 12.3-4: But those who worship the formless aspect of the Absolute Truth—the imperishable, the indefinable, the unmanifest, the all-pervading, the unthinkable, the unchanging, the eternal, and the immoveable—by restraining their senses and being even-minded everywhere, such persons, engaged in the welfare of all beings, also attain Me.


Having said that worship of the personal form is the best, Shree Krishna clarifies that in no way does He reject the worship of the formless.  Those who devote themselves to the all-pervading, indefinable, unmanifest, inconceivable, immovable, eternal Brahman, also attain God.

Living beings are of an infinite variety of natures.  The Supreme Lord who has created this variety also possesses an infinite variety of aspects to His personality.  For the sake of our finite comprehension, we classify the infinite manifestations of God into categories.  Accordingly, Ved Vyas has classified God’s various manifestations into three types, Brahman, Paramātmā, andBhagavān, as mentioned in the commentary of the previous verse.  One may worship either of these categories, but one should never claim that one’s conception of God is the only correct one while those of the others are erroneous.

In verse 4.11, Shree Krishna had stated: “In whatever way people surrender unto Me, I reciprocate with them accordingly.  Everyone follows My path in all respects, O son of Pritha.”  Here, Shree Krishna confirms that the worshippers of the formless also reach Him.  Since their choice is to unite with the attributeless manifestation of the Supreme Absolute Truth, God meets them as the unmanifest, all-pervading Brahman.

Astrological Analysis 

Let me take the chart of Acharya Srila Prabhupada. He was born on September 1, 1896. In most of Nadi literature, time of birth ie., Lagna is not given. Importance is given to Jivakaraka Guru/Jupiter’s placement. There is no Dasa system, instead, we follow the progression of natal Guru/Jupiter every year to the next sign or Rashi. Here no lordships are not taken into consideration but only planetary Karakattwas are important. Planets which are in 2nd,12th,11th,5th,7th and 9th are most important. There are a lot of Karakattwas allotted to each planet. Anyhow for the reader’s information, the time of birth was 4 PM at Kolkata.
Now in Acharya’s chart, Jivakaraka Guru was placed in Simha Rashi/Leo sign along with its Lord Surya/Sun and Ketu, the planet of renunciation/Tyagakaraka or Mokshakaraka. So this chart has Jeevatma Moksha Yoga ie., Jiva + Atma + Moksha Yoga a powerful Yoga which is in Simha Rashi which is Dharma Tattwa Rashi. Also please note that both Guru/Jupiter and Ketu are in the Nakshatra of Makha ruled by Kethu itself showing HE was born to renounce the world. Here Ketu will enter the next house of Karka Rashi which is the exaltation sign of Guru which is also a Moksha Tattwa Rashi indicating it was HIS last birth.2nd to these planets are Budha exalted  ( being born in Budha Hora )with Shukra ( Neecha Bhanga ). This clearly indicates he had Vak Siddhi Yoga.He became a big preacher and also a praiser of Lord Krishna. Now see this combination is in Karma Tattwa and in the same direction, we find exalted Chandra/Moon with Kuja/Mars. Please note that HE was born on Tuesday and the Janma Nakshatra was Mrigashira which was again ruled by Kuja/Mars. So Kuja is powerful in His chart.
Jivakaraka Guru is with Surya who is in his own house. Surya is the Karaka for father.So Acharya’s father was also a highly religious person along with His mother as Chandra, the Karaka for Mother is exalted who was a worshipper of Lord Krishna. Karma Karaka Shani is exalted in 3rd house from Jiva Karaka Guru + Surya + Ketu.12th from Shani is occupied by exalted Budha with Shukra. So His Karma is related to religious preaching, singing bhajans & spiritual activities related to Lord Krishna. Shani’s placement in Tula Rashi which is a Kaama Rashi but the planet is Karma Tattwa based, so Acharya’s main aim/desire in HIS life was Karma related to religious preaching, writings in praise of Lord Krishna. As Guru + Surya + Ketu are in Simha Rashi, HE was a Vedic scholar, also the planets 2nd to these planets ie., Budha + Shukra + Chandra + Kuja have given HIM what is called as
Bhakti Yoga.
Buddha in 2nd to Jiva Karaka Guru who is exalted in Kanya Rashi gave Him good education related to finance/economics etc. Also, Rahu who is in 7th to Guru indicates Foreign, so Acharya learnt the English language also and became proficient in that language.
Now 7th sign of Zodiac is Thula Rashi and is occupied by exalted Shani, so 7th house got afflicted. Also its lord Shukra/Venus is debilitated in Kanya/Virgo Rashi. So even though He is married, His married life was not smooth. Even though Shukra/Venus is debilitated, it gets Neechabhanga due to association with exalted Budha.
Jivakaraka Guru transits every Rashi for one year, so it completes 12 years when it comes to the previous house of Jivakaraka Guru/Jupiter in the chart. So when Jivakaraka Guru in his 2nd round when transiting over 9th from Shukra/Venus where Chandra and Kuja are there ie., during his 22nd year, HIS marriage took place.In Nadi literature, Surya has Karakattwa for father as well as for son also. This is mainly due to father is responsible for the issues in his family.So in Acharya’s chart, Surya is in his own place of Simha Rashi/Leo sign which is the most powerful sign along with Guru, so He had 2 male children. But now you see the longitude of Surya. He is in Simha 17 Degs.2’.He is moving to next sign within a few days where he meets Shukra/Venus. So even though He had 2 male children nobody helped Him and they were away from Him.
For renunciation, Ketu is the most important. Now see in 1922, the transits were Guru, Shani and Rahu were in Kanya and Ketu in Meena Rashi activating the natal Ketu which aspects Kataka Rashi through its previous house aspect. Shani, the Karma Karaka has decided what to do with this gentleman. He met with His spiritual Guru during this time. ( All the dates are between August and October as September 1, 1896, is His date of birth.)But He took spiritual initiation in 1933. Please check the transit of planets as on September 1, 1933.
For any spiritual initiation, Ketu’s transit is very important. Please see that during the 2nd round of Rahu-Ketu’s transit, Ketu was transiting over natal Jivakaraka Guru, Surya and especially Ketu. Karma Karaka Shani was retrograde and was in Makara Rashi. So he has to be considered from Dhanu also. Now see the planetary patterns are changed. It is like this: Shani ( R ) + Ketu acting on natal Jivakaraka Guru + Surya, the Atma Karaka and Natal Moksha Karaka Ketu. Even though He has not taken Sanyas, his spiritual activities have started from this period onwards.
So all the spiritual activities, lectures related to Lord Krishna, Bhagavatham etc.started from this period along with publications. But during 1959 ( between August and September ), He took complete Sanyas. See the planetary patterns. Transit Guru was in Vrischika Rashi, Shani ( R ) was in Dhanu and Ketu was in Meena Rashi. So these planetary positions made Him take complete Sanyas.
In 1965, September, when transit Guru was in Mithuna Rashi, Shani ( R ) was in Kumbha Rashi, Rahu was in Vrishbha Rashi and Ketu was in Vrischika Rashi ( But his progressed Guru/Jivakaraka Guru was in Vrishabha Rashi -70th year ), He travelled to the USA as per His Guru’s directives and in 1966, ISKCON – International Krishna Consciousness was started by Him.
On November 14, 1977, His Atma attained Moksha. On that day, Rahu-Kala/Mrityu was transiting over Kanya Rashi respecting its previous house where natal Guru, Surya and Ketu are there. Transit Ketu was in Meena Rashi aspecting its previous house of Kumbha Rashi which is in trine to Tula Rashi where Natal Shani is there. Thus there was the end of Karma and end of Jiva and Atma attained Moksha. Please go through His Punya chart below.
This is my 1st Nadi article written on this auspicious day of Shri Krishna Janmashtami and is completely dedicated to HIM. Without HIM,I am nothing in this Universe.

Lakshmi- The Celestial Goddess

||Om SriGuruCharanKamalebheyo Namah||
“I bow down at the lotus feet of my master SriGuru Mahavatar”

Pranam to all the beautiful seekers,

I’m happy to write this V-log for you and as you are reading this- I’m sure you are one of the sincere seekers who has reached here to this revelation. Let’s begin.
Since Deepawali is around the corner, so, Today I’ve chosen to write on “Lakshmi” which is misinterpreted through various media channels or by the priests and nonetheless by con-practitioners who con people by selling remedies or rituals.
The most important aspect of any understanding that we want to develop is the knowledge which is majorly lost in today’s time because of which we lost our all understanding of various facts and we are unable to realise the truths behind. The basis of our ancient scientific knowledge is Devnagri (lipi) text script through which the Shruti (sound vibration) is given a form to understand at the level of conscious.
Now, Let’s understand what does the word Lakshmi means. Lakshmi considered to be the Goddess of wealth & fortune, the sustainer energy of the universe, the one who emerged out from the kshir sagar during the churning by devatas and asuras, she who accepted Lord Vishnu as her eternal consort. Lakshmi (लक्ष्मी) comes from the sanskrit word “लक्ष्यामि”- “the giver of direction for goal”; लक्ष्य को आयाम देने वाली.  Now, the word “लक्ष्य” denotes to the destroying (क्षय) of “ल” means the old archetype, the core limiting behavior which is the pure trait of “Muladhar center” that is why the seed syllable “लं” (lam) is chanted to raise the energy from the base as the anuswara (the dot used above the vyanjan ल) is the connecting sound which is the fourth quarter vibration of ॐ called as “im”representing the “state of liberation”.
So, Lakshmi is the energy which is worshipped by the ones who have destroyed their old primitive limiting beliefs, habits & desires and have one universal goal to evolve from the base to know who they are and want to move forward on the path in a sustained pace. And, a seeker of truth must have sustaining discipline and efforts to reach the final goal of evolution. That is why Lakshmi accepted the sustainer Lord Vishnu to be her eternal consort.
Lakshmi Sukt mentions “पद्मिनि पद्मपत्रे पद्मप्रिये”- She sits on Lotus flower which represents Her evolving out of lotus signifying the rise of energy from the Muladhar and the only goal remains is to know “Who am I?” which arises from its counterpart question- “I dont know who am I?”. That’s why the Goddess can not be approached with a mind which knows everything.  But since, in the delusioned world where money is the only goal behind every action, every desire, every learning; that’s is why the worldly people started to worship Lakshmi as the Goddess of money not as wealth, which is the biggest disbelief. Because, money which is the medium of exchange of resources is a temporary and time bound whereas wealth is “what remains forever and travels with you as accumulation”; that is how money and wealth are different. And, the most dreadful thing is- we lose wealth to grab money, losing all values, truthfulness and accept treachery, hatred and folly in order to just grab money.
Now, Just ask yourself-
1. Do you think, Goddess can be worshipped by anyone who is not interested in the wealth that She is offering and can ask for something which She has no relation with??
as She is offering ultimate wealth and you ask for money which she is not even printing anyway!!
2. Do you think, any worship or recitation or prayer performed by a treacherous can raise the ultimate wealth?
-as She betows Her blessings upon a disciplined truthful seeker and after all cheating in the workplace only paper money might be collected but wealth can never be!!
I hope this will make you think on these questions while you perform Lakshmi worship this year. I will share more on this in the upcoming posts as more is coming up on “Deepawali” in the next V-log.

Guru’s Grace Be Upon You!!
