Grateful for your wholehearted interest in the deeper aspects of spirituality and happy that the sharings are bringing awareness among the right set of people. As you must have gone through my last V-log on “Lakshmi- The Celestial Goddess” and if you have not then do read it before you read this one as both are linked in some way.Here is the link for the last V-log:
Today’s V-log is about bringing awareness about the festival of Deepawali. So, now as you know about Lakshmi, which has no relation with money but with one’s evolution on the life journey, now we need to understand who is “Ram”, “राम”. Is it the same राम or it means something else? Is it that whole Bharat is celebrating the coming back of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after fourteen years of exile? Let’s decode this today along with few more facts.
First of all, what does the word “राम” means; “र” represents the creative energy and light, “T” represents more/abundance of that energy and giving it a pathway, “म” signifies the waking state. So, this gives us a clear meaning of “राम”, which conveys the creative energy of light which is abundant and gives pathway to reach the waking state. One thing that we must realize now is that the pure & deep ancient knowledge is lost because of which we are merely surviving on the information which is passed from one generation to another. So is the case of our festivals and rituals. Living in a pure & spiritually rich country like Bharat, we can easily access to that wisdom, just if we connect to our roots and do not follow anything blindly.
Same way, Deepawali signifies the moment when the light is powerful and it removes all darkness from within. It reflects the beginning of the days of light as Deepawali is celebrated on the dark night of Amavasya which denotes, even if there is darkness all around but still you can enlighten amidst the darkness by lightning. Burn the soft cotton wick “chitta” by pouring the oil of “samkalpa shakti” in the earthen pot like “body” and let Thy Name by the flame to illumin you from within. “Ram” inside you has to be brought back home from the exile and it must shine within. Wake up to all what is causing darkness inside and let your light shine amidst all darkness as the Amavasya night.
How long will you continue to celebrate the festival of Deepawali without the return of your Ram home? How long will you continue to clean your cemented houses and let your house body be in utter dirt and darkness created by anger, hatred, sorrow, lust and grief? Will just burning lamps on your walls bring light inside? Think on these lines!!
The same life begins as the next day comes. Same routine, same life, same people, same emotions, same everything which shows that there is still darkness and you continue to live in the middle of Amavasya. Moon might shine on the sky but you there is yet no light in your conscious. Another Deepawali, an opportunity came and went but house remained unclean, the life remained in darkness and no change. Do you think sages were not wise enough to decide and fix festivals for us? Every festival is kept with great significance but the whole essence is lost and the surfaced rituals are left which lead you nowhere.
How can you celebrate Deepawali?
– Free yourself from all the dark emotions which kill your vigour and pull you down.
– Promise yourself that you will bring your Ram back home inside with your strong will power and practice.
– Forgive people whom you could not because forgiving them is not good for them but it will only set you free.
– Bow to nature and Lord Almighty to shed light into your life through knowledge.
– Keep your body in good health by feeding good food (ahaar) in all respects, be it natural food, knowledge or truthful company.
– Spread your sweet words to one and all. Make it a permanent thing that you will gift your words to people.
– Take it as a new birth like a new moon shines the very next day to Deepawali.
Remember, until your energy does not rise above the basic functionality of life, until the first lotus at the Muladhar does not flower, till then Lakshmi can not reside.
One more hint: Govardhan (Go means senses, Vardhan means to be enhanced) Puja is performed after Deepawali, which signify that awaken your Ram (light) on Deepawali and then your senses will function in an enhanced manner, which reflects the abilities like clairvoyance & clairaudience. But, this depends upon the shining of inner light, your Ram.I hope this will help you look at Deepawali in an absolute way and it shall be prosperous for you.
I bow at the lotus feet of my Master SriGuru Mahavatar Babaji,
Since in the modernized Bharat, we have lost all our ancient knowledge and we do not know what we do not understand today, why are we doing any recitation of any text or what does that text mean in its absolute terms. Such one text is “Hanuman Chalisa”; which many and many had been doing it over & over but yet do not realize the true meaning of it.
Here, in the V-log, I am just explaining few facts about Hanuman and the Chalisa. Let’s firstly look into the word- Hanumat (हनुमत) with the phonetics in devnagri script- “ह”,”न”,”म”,”त”.
“ह” represents the “fire”, which is the seed syllable for Sun,
“न” denotes to “by” (द्वारा),
“म” represents the ” waking state” (जागृत अवस्था), (as mentioned in Manudkya Upanishad about M-kaara)
“त” denotes to “to” (से),
So, Hanumat means the “fiery energy by which one can reach to the waking state”.
“Chalisa” conveys“the discipline that the seeker has to follow for 40 days to reach onto that state.”Now, in the text “Hanuman Chalisa” itself there are numerous hints which speak about this principle of energy and the discipline.
Hanuman represent to the fiery prana energy inside each one of you which is super powerful (महावीर), glorified (बिक्रम), strongly weaponed body (बजरंगी- वज्र- अंगी),which removes the ignorance (कुमती निवार) and it companions with the intelligent (सुमती के संगी). It’s glory is represented as golden halo (कंचन वरन) and beautifully clothed (विराज सुबेसा). Bhakta Tulasidas has coded it so beautifully & intelligently that readers will continue reading it with it’s literal meanings whereas it completely allegorically.
Hanuman Chalisa also laid down to the discipline for the seekers and practitioners, as it mentions:
और देवता चित्त न धरई, हनुमत से हि सर्व सुख करई
do not let any other deity to reside in your conscious,
Hanumat alone shall bestow all prosperities.
It refers that only the prana should be practised and nothing else is required. And, that requires the basic discipline in life to be put in place. First work upon the body, then breath and then the sadhna of the prana. Then, there is one more similarity that the word Hanuman relate to Human too, which signify the powers and qualities of an evolved being which we here are mentioning as “Hanuman- The Pranic Human Force.”
Hope this helps you develop an absolute vision to understand the text.
As per wiki, Dhana Trayodashi (or Dhanteras or धनत्रयोदशी) is the first day of the Indian Diwali and Nepalese Tihar Festival. The festival is known as “Dhanatrayodashi” or “Dhanvantari Trayodashi”. It is celebrated on the thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in the Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar month of Kartika month.
This day is also celebrated for Lord Dhanvantari (Deity who rules Ayurveda) and worshipped on the occasion of Trayodashi, usually, this day is called Dhanvantari Trayodashi. Dhanvantari is considered to be the teacher of all physicians and the originator of Ayurveda.
‘Dhan’ means wealth and ‘Teras’ refers to the thirteenth day of the moon cycle on the thirteenth day of Kartika Krishna Paksha. On this auspicious day, Goddess Laxmi, Lord Dhanvantri and Lord Kuber are worshipped in sthir Lagna at evening time. Traditionally it is considered as to be good in Hindus to buy gold and silver jewelry or utensils as they are karka for Vaibhav.
If we See background history from our Vedic Scriptures (Puranas), root of the Dhanteras belong from the Samudra Manthan, It is believed that on this day, Goddess Lakshmi emerged from the ocean along with other precious treasures and pieces of jewelry, during Churning of Ocean. According to the Bhagwat and Visnu Purana, Lord Dhanvantri also emerged from the sea with the pot of Amrit for distributing it to the Devtas. Lord Dhanvantri is another form of Lord Vishnu and also worshipped on this day along with Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kuber for the good health, wealth, and wellbeing.
Below are Detailed info on Dhanteras Puja Vidhi and Muharat :
Pradosh Kaal Muhurat
Dhanteras Puja on Monday, November 5, 2018
Dhanteras Puja Muhurta – 18:06 to 20:01
Duration – 01 Hour 56 Mins
Pradosh Kaal – 17:29 to 20:07
Vrishabha Kaal – 18:06 to 20:01
Trayodashi Tithi Begins – 01:24 on Nov 05, 2018
Trayodashi Tithi Ends – 23:47 on Nov 05, 2018
According to Drikpanchang, Lakshmi Poojan on Dhanteras should be done during Pradosh Kaal after sunset and approximately lasts for 2 hours and 24 minutes when Sthir Lagna (Fixed Signs) prevails, Sthir means fixed, not movable as in Sthira Lagna goddess Laxmi sits and stays in your home.Today Sthira Lagna will rise after 18:05:38 (Taurus Lagna), hence this time is the best for Dhanteras Pujan for Laxmi poojan.
But before that there we need to light 13 or 1 lamp in the house to keep away the evil and let the good light come in in the form of good health and wellbeing with Goddes Laxmi and Dhanvantri.
Dhanteras has nothing to do with the wealth, but It is more about the health and well being of the house, what happens when “Ashta Laxmi”comes in the house with lord Dhanvantri which brings good health, well being and overall happiness for the whole family members. ‘
It Has a deep story, as for why we need to lit the lamp on Dhanteras for Lord Yama;
” This is explained in the story of the prince and his new wife, which is said to have happened on this day centuries ago. The prince, his new wife and the serpent The 16-year-old son of King Hima was predicted to die on his fourth day of marriage – on Dhanteras – by snake bite.
But instead of dying, on that date his wife decided she would not let him go to sleep. She laid out all her ornaments as well as pots of gold and silver coins at the entrance to their bedroom and lit lots of lamps.
She told him stories and sang songs to keep him awake that night and when the God of Death, Yama, came disguised as a snake, he was so dazzled by the glittering precious metals and lights that he climbed on top of the coins and listened to the stories instead. By morning, rather than killing the prince, he slithered away silently because he had missed the chance. The prince was saved by his bride after she baffled the snake with her wealth.”
That’s why in Dhanteras first it involves worshipping of Lord Yama with Deep Daan on this day for the protection of one’s family members and loved ones. After worshipping Lord Yama one should Lit 13 earthen Lamps on the honour of Lord Yama in a southern direction with sesame oil outside the house in evening time in pradosh kaal.
Below is the Step by Step Process first from Lighting earthen lamp in evening time for Lord Yama Deepam Daan.
Step -1 – Worshipping of Lord Yama in Pardosh Kaal in evening
1. Take a small wooden slab with small legs.
2. Make a swastik with roli on it.
3. Now put 13 or 1 earthen lamps on it fill it with sesame oil and light the earthen lamps.
4. Now take a cowry shell with hole and put it into earthen lamps.
5. Shower water (Gangajal or pure water) around lamp 3 times.
6. Put tilak of roli on lamp. Then put raw whole rice on tilak.
7. Offer some sugar to it. (Just put some sugar in the lamp).
8. Put 1 rupee coin in it.
9. Now offer some flowers to lamp.
10. Do pranam to earthen lamp.
11. Offer tilak to family members.
12. Now place this lamp outside main gate of your house. Place it on right side of door. It’s flame must face towards south direction.
After placing this earthen lamp recite the following mantra and offer honor and respect and pray to the Lord Yama for well being of the family members:
Step 2 – Worshipping of Lord Dhanwantari
After lighting earthen lamp for Lord Yama, one should start dhanwantari pooja in your pooja room. Lord Dhanwantari is diety of the Ayurveda, form of Lord Vishnu, as he has emerged on this day so he should be worshipped in Dhanteras. Give bathing and anointing the idol of Lord Dhanwantari with vermillion, nine varieties of grains are offered to the Lord.
1. Sit in your pooja room.
2. Recite Dhanwantari Mantra at least 108 times.
Dhanwantari mantra is : “Om Dhan Dhanvantaraye Namah”
“ॐ धं धन्वन्तरये नमः“.
or you can Recite below-mentioned mantra
“Om Namo Bhagavate Maha Sudharshana Vasudevaya Dhanvantaraye; Amrutha Kalasa Hasthaaya Sarva Bhaya Vinasaya Sarva amaya Nivaranaya Thri Lokya Pathaye Thri Lokya Nidhaye Sri Maha Vishnu Swarupa Sri Dhanvantri Swarupa Sri Sri Sri Aoushata Chakra Narayana Swaha”
We pray to God, who is Sudharshana Vasudeva Dhanvantri. He holds the kalasha full of nectar of immortality. Lord Dhanvantri removes all the fears and diseases. He is the well-wisher and preserver of the three worlds. Like Lord Vishnu, Dhanvantri is empowered to heal our souls. We bow to the Lord of Ayurveda.
After the end of recitation, Say,
“O Lord Dhanwantari! I offer this recitation in your lotus feet. Please give us good health.”
Step 3: Ganesh, Lakshmi and Kubera Pooja on Dhanteras
After Dhanwantari pooja one must do panchopchar pooja of Lord Ganesh and Goddess Lakshmi with Kubera.In the evening, all family members should gather and start the prayer.Before Starting pooja give him a bath and anoint him with sandal paste. A red cloth is offered to the Lord and then fresh flowers are showered on the idol of Lord Ganesha. Devotees can also chant the mantra and take his blessings before starting the rituals of Dhanteras.
Ganesh Panchopchar puja is as follows:
1. Show earthen lamp to him.
2. Offer dhoop to him.
3. Offer scent to Lord Ganesha.
4.Offer flowers in his lotus feet.
5.Offer sweets (naivedya) to Lord Ganesh.
Kubera, the lord of yakshas, bless us with wealth and prosperity.
Now, worship Goddess Lakshmi in Sthir Kaal in Vrishabha Kaal @18:05 to 20:01
In Dhanteras, During the Pradosh Kaal, which is the time after sunset and lasts for about two and a half hours, Goddess Lakshmi is used to worshipped on Dhanteras. Before starting this pooja ritual, one should take a piece of new cloth, spread with a handful of grains in the middle of the cloth. The cloth should be spread on a raised platform. A kalash half filled with water (mixed with Gangajal), betel nut, a flower, a coin and some rice grains is also kept together.
One can also keep mango leaves in the kalash. According to the rituals, a lotus is drawn with Haldi (turmeric) over the grains and the idol of Goddess Lakshmi is kept over the grains. Light a lamp, offer flowers, haldi, Vermillion to the Goddess Lakshmi, Lord Ganesha and to the kalash then chant the below-mentioned mantra:
“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.
Let me share with you a glimpse of the power of “Vedic Etymology” which will certainly put you in amaze.
From past many years, I had been emphasizing upon “niruktam”- the vedic etymology which helps us understand the deeper, absolute and true meanings of words. Every letter in the Devnagri varnmala (alphabetic system) has a meaning and it represents a system inside you. The vowels (swara) and consonants (vyanjan) has a meaning leading to a deeper understanding of the whole of creation and forms the connecting links between the creations that we see in this world.
Let me explain to you with the help of my own name. the word Vishal, विशाल, which means in a simple language as very big or huge or expansive.
विश in devnagri means the lotus stem which in sanskrit is written as “बिस”, and आल is आ (through, से) + आलय (abode) which means abode. So, we can join the meanings and understand that “Vishal” means “to the abode through lotus stem”, which is also explained beautifully in Lalita Sahastranam as “mahashaktih kundalini bistantutaniyasi”, verse 92. This signify the expansive form of the energy which is multi-dimensional with its expansion in each individual and the creation.
Now, let’s take another word. Same way the word विश्व is designed:
विश + अव, अव means to come down (उतरना); विश्व means which has come down from the lotus stem. This too is beautifully pictured in a puranic image where Brahma, the Lord of creation is attached at the other end of lotus stem originating from Lord Vishnu.This way you can reach more deeper into finding the lost knowledge.Note: You can also find a video from 2016 done on my fb account explaining how devanagri consonants represent the vertebral column and relate to our breath
This is an Article Compiled from the chapters of ” Lord Shiva and his worship ” Book Written by Swami Sivananda
Shared for the Knowledge purpose for public benefits to get Detailed view on Lord Shiva by Swami Sivananda Philosophy. As I am deeply infatuated by the Wisdom of the Swami Sivananda on Lord shiva so i have presented his peace of work on Shiva for the people reading interest.Readers can buy the Original Book from the Amazon or flipkart.com
We comprehend (realise) that Celebrated Supreme Being (Purusha), and meditate upon that Great God, Mahadeva; may that Rudra impel us to do so. This is the Rudra Gayatri Mantra.
(Shiva Gayatri Mantra)
Who is Shiva?
In Me the universe had its origin,
In Me alone the whole subsists;
In Me it is lost—Siva,
The Timeless, it is I Myself,
Sivoham! Sivoham! Sivoham!
” Salutations to Lord Siva, the vanquisher of Cupid, the bestower of eternal bliss and immortality, the protector of all beings, destroyer of sins, the Lord of the gods, who wears a tiger-skin, the best among objects of worship, through whose matted hair the Ganga flows.
Lord Siva is the pure, changeless, attributeless, all-pervading transcendental consciousness.
He is the inactive (Nishkriya) Purusha. Prakriti is dancing on His breast and performing the creative, preservative and destructive processes.”
(By Swami Sivananda)
View of the Swami Sivananda on Lord Shiva from His Book ( Lord Shiv and His worship)
By Swami Sivananda
” When there is neither light nor darkness, neither form nor energy, neither sound nor matter, when there is no manifestation of phenomenal existence, Siva alone exists in Himself.He is timeless, spaceless, birthless, deathless, decayless. He is beyond the pairs of opposites. He is the Impersonal Absolute Brahman. He is untouched by pleasure and pain, good and evil. He cannot be seen by the eyes but He can be realised within the heart through devotion and meditation.”
” Siva is also the Supreme personal God when He is identified with His power. He is then omnipotent, omniscient active God. He dances in supreme joy and creates, sustains and destroys with the rhythm of His dancing movements.
He destroys all bondage, limitation and sorrow of His devotees. He is the giver of Mukti or the final emancipation. He is the universal Self. He is the true Self of all creatures. He is the dweller in the cremation-ground, in the region of the dead, those who are dead to the world.
The Jivas and the world originate from Him, exist in Him, are sustained and rejected by Him and are ultimately merged in Him. He is the support, source and substratum of the whole world. He
is an embodiment of Truth, Beauty, Goodness and Bliss. He is Satyam, Sivam, Subham, Sundaram, Kantam.
He is the God of gods, Deva-Deva. He is the Great Deity—Mahadeva. He is the God of manes (Prajapati). He is the most awe-inspiring and terrifying deity, Rudra, with Trisul or trident in
His hand. He is the most easily pleased (Asutosha). He is accessible to all. Even the untouchable Chandalas and the illiterate rustics can approach Him.
He is the source of all knowledge and wisdom. He is an ideal Yogi and Muni. He is the ideal head of an ideal family with Uma as His devoted wife, Lord Subrahmanya, the brave general of
strength and courage, Lord Ganesa, the remover of all obstacles.
At the end of Pralaya, the Supreme Lord thinks of re-creation of the world. He is then known by the name Sadasiva. He is the root-cause of creation. From Sadasiva creation begins. In Manusmriti He is called Svayambhu. Sadasiva is unmanifested, He destroys the Tamas caused by Pralaya and shines as the self-resplendent light bringing forth the five great elements, etc., into being.
The Siva Purana says that Siva is beyond both Prakriti and Purusha. Siva is Mahesvara. He is the witness, well-wisher and nourisher of all beings.
The Gita says:
‘Upadrashtanumanta cha bharta bhokta mahesvarah’.
Mahesvara conducts the work of creation according to His will and pleasure.
The Sruti says,
‘Mayam tu prakritim viddhi mayinam tu mahesvaram’.
Know Prakriti to be Maya and Mahesvara to be the wielder of Maya or Prakriti.
The Sakti of Siva works in two different ways. Mula Prakriti
and Daivi Prakriti. Mula Prakriti is Apara Prakriti from which the five elements and other visible objects and the Antahkarana are evolved. Para Prakriti is Chaitanya Sakti which converts the Apara
Prakriti and gives name and form to it. Apara Prakriti is Avidya and Para Prakriti is Vidya.
The controller and dispenser of these two Prakritis is Lord Siva.
Siva is distinct from Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra.
Lord Siva is the Lord of innumerable crores of Brahmandas or worlds. Isvara united with Maya gives rise to Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra out of Rajas, Sattva and Tamo Gunas respectively, under the command of Lord Siva. Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra are the trinities of the world.
There is no difference among the trinities, Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra. By the command of Mahesvara these three do the creative, preservative and destructive duties of the world. The work of all the three deities is done conjointly. They all have one view and one definite purpose in creating, preserving and destroying the visible universe of names and forms. He who regards the three deities as distinct and different, Siva Purana says, is undoubtedly a devil or evil spirit.
The Lord who is beyond the three Gunas, Mahesvara, has four aspects: Brahma, Kala, Rudra and Vishnu. Siva is the support for all the four. He is the substratum for Sakti also. Siva is distinct from the Rudra included in the trinities. Rudra is really one though according to the different functions He is considered to have eleven different forms.
The first face of Siva does Krida or play, the second does penance, the third destroys or dissolves the world, the fourth protects the people and the fifth, being knowledge, fully covers the entire universe by its power.He is Isana the creator and promoter of all beings, from within.The first form of Siva is the enjoyer of Prakriti as Kshetrajna Purusha. The second is Tatpurusha resting in Sattva-guna, rooted in Bhogya-Prakriti, the Prakriti-enjoyed. The third is Ghora rooted in the eightfold Buddhi like Dharma, etc.
The fourth is Vamadeva rooted in Ahankara and the fifth is Sadyojata, the presiding deity of the mind. The eight forms of Siva are Sarva, Bhava, Rudra, Ugra, Bhima, Pasupati, Isana and Mahadeva, rooted respectively in earth, water, fire, air, ether, Kshetrajna, sun and moon.”

Panchang — Panchang word is combination of Panch means Five and ang means limb.
This means Panchang is form with Five limbs.
Five limbs of Panchang
The Five limbs of Panchang are
Now we know about all limbs of Panchang one by one.
Var is Seven.
1) Ravivar Or Sunday
2) Somvar or Monday
3) Mangalvar or Tuesday
4) Budhvar or Wednesday
5) Guruvar or Thursday
6) Shukravar or Friday
7) Shanivar or Saturday
In Our Vedic system Var or day is changed after Sunrise. For example Today 18 may 2018 is Friday or Shukravar. In Standard calendar day is changed after midnight and 12am and new day will be Saturday.
But in Vedic system day change after Sunrise. So suppose Sunrise in today is 6 am and Tomorrow 19 may sun rise at 6 am. So Vedic var of the day will be from 6am today to next day 6am. Means Shukrawar from 6 am upto 6 am next day 19 may. Hope you understand the var concept and don’t confuse with standard day system.
Now in our Vedic system, each var is ruled by a different planet. So according to their rulership in our classical book of astrology gives hints about their best effects on Native.
Ravivar(Sunday) — This day is ruled by Sun. So people born in this day is consider blessed by Lord Sun.
People born on Sunday is honourable by others. He has brown hair, eyes and body colour. He will be proudy or having ego or Proudness.

Tuesday (Mangal Var) —- This day is ruled by Mars. So native is blessed by Mars quality.
So He is cruel. He will be interested in hard or argumentive words or speech. He will be interested in brave full acts.

So Native is honoured, God and Brahman. He is very Good in communication. He will be polite in behaviour.

Our Vedic calendar is based on the Lunar month and Lunar Thithi. One day of the Lunar month is called one Thithi.
One Thithi is time at which Moon moves 12 degree away from the Sun.
Means Tithi or lunar day is a period in which the difference between the longitudes of Moon and Sun changes by exactly 12°.
When Sun and Moon are at same longitude or in the simple same degree that day is called Amavasya.
Now when Moon travels 12° away from Sun then a new Thithi started. It is Pratipada or 1st Tithi. When Moon’s longitude is exactly 24° greater than Sun’s longitude, then second tithi finishes and the third tithi starts. When Moon’s longitude is exactly 36° greater than Sun’s longitude, the third tithi finishes and the fourth tithi starts. And so on……
You can see that Sun-Moon longitude differential will be (12 x n)° after exactly n tithis. Where n denote the number of Thithi.
A lunar month consists of 30 tithis. Each month is divided into two fortnights or pakshas
During Sukla/Suddha paksha or the brighter fortnight, Moon is waxing.
When Moon and Sun are at Same degree it is Amavasya. Now Moon is the fastest moving planet so it is going forward and moved away from Sun then Shukla pakhsha is Started. And so during the period when Moon moves 0 to 12° is 1st Thithi or Shukla Pratipada.
During this paksha, Moon is ahead of Sun by an amount that is between 0º and 180º.
At exactly 180° difference between Sun and Moon it is Purnima.
After Purnima new month of Krishna paksha started.
During Krishna/Bahula paksha or the darker fortnight, Moon is waning. During this paksha, Moon is ahead of Sun by an amount that is between 180º and 360º.
Note the point
When Moon is forward 0 to 7th Bhav from Sun it is in Shukla pakhsha.
When Moon is forward 7 to 12th , 12th to 0 Bhav it is Krishna paksha.
Here we consider Sun degree as midpoint.
Look at this chart.
Method of calculations of Thithi
We can find the tithi running on a day from the longitudes of Sun and Moon using the following procedure.
(1) Find the difference:
(Moon’s longitude – Sun’s longitude).
Note –(Add 360° if the result is negative.)
The result will be between 0° and 360° and will show how advanced Moon is with respect to Sun.
(2) Divide this result by 12°.
Ignore the remainder and take the quotient.
(3) Add 1 to the quotient.
You get a number from 1 to 30. That will give the index of the tithi running according to chart.
(4) Refer to Table and find the name of the tithi. There are 15 tithis and the same tithis repeat in the brigher and darker fortnights.
For example,if we get 22 from above calculation then it can be seen fromthe table that the 22th tithi out of the 30 tithis is in Krishna paksha and it is Saptami.
So the 22nd tithi is “Krishna Saptami”.
We write the classification of fortnight (Shukla or Krishna) first and then write tithi name. “Shukla Saptami or Krishna Saptami”
Where Shukla stands for “Saptami” in the brighter fortnight (shukla paksha),
i.e. the 7th tithi. “Krishna Saptami” stands for “Saptami” in the darker fortnight (krishna paksha),
i.e. the 22nd tithi.
Let us say that Moon is at 24°12′ in Gemini. So it’s mean
This is (2 x 30°) + 24° 12′ = 84° 12′ Moon
from the beginning of the zodiac.
Let us say that Sun is at 17°46′ in Scorpio.
This is (7 x 30°) + 17° 46′ = 227° 46′
from the beginning of the zodiac.
Moon – Sun = 84° 12′ – 227° 46′ = –(143° 34′).
It is negative because Sun is at a higher longitude.
We have to add 360° to it to make it positive.
It becomes 216° 26′.
So this is the advancement of Moon with respect to Sun.
Converting this to a decimal number, we get 216.43°. We have to divide it by 12°.
We find 216.43 ÷ 12 and the quotient is 18.
So 18 tithis are over.
Adding 1 to it, we get 19 and
so the 19th tithi is running. Referring to Table , we see that this is
“Chaturthi” tithi of Krishna paksha (darker fortnight). So it is “Krishna Chaturthi”.
Now we have to know Moon is transit in all 12 sign in 28days.
Sun is transit 1 degree in 1 days.
So At 30 days Sun is transit 1 sign
So at one Amavasya to another Amavasya Moon has traveling 12sign + 1sign which is forward by Sun.
Suppose Sun in Aries sign and this time Amavasya so
After around 1month Sun in Taurus so
This time Amavasya in Taurus sign at when Sun and Moon degree is same .
So Amavasya in Taurus sign.
That’s my mean Moon travel 12sign +1 Sign where Sun is actually placed current time.
Now we understand the concept of thithi so we know the effect of thithi.

As we know that when Sun and Moon are exactly 180° away from each other then that day is called Purnima. And after that a new month or Mass is starting.
Now we think Sun and Moon conjunction at same degree then this day is Amavasya.
A lunar month means time taken by Moon between 2conjuction.
Means One Amavasya to another Amavasya.
Look at this chart.
When Sun and Moon conjunction is happens in Pisces Sign and Full Moon means Sun and Moon away exactly 180° then Moon in Chitra Nakhshatra then that month will be chaitra month.
For example today is Amavasya. And Sun and Moon conjunction happen in Leo sign. Again at the day of Purnima Moon is in Purvabhadra pad so this month is Bhadrapad.
I think you understand the concept of Maas.
Adimas concept —
As you know in our Maas system we found that some years there are two same Maas.
So we know this concept.
A solar year has about 365.2425 days.
Means Time taken by Sun to transit all 12sign and come again to Aries.
For make up this .2425 days we have a keep year in each fourth year.
A lunar year only has about 355 days. So to make up this gap once in every 3 year a extra Lunar month comes.
To decide when this extra Lunar month comes we has formula in our vedic system.
When ever Sun-Moon conjunction coming twice in the same rasi. Means 2 Amavasya in Same Sign then that month two Lunar month is coming.
Sun-Moon conjunction took place at 0°23′ in Taurus on May 15, 1999 at 5:35:32 pm (IST) and again at 28°29′ in Taurus on June 14, 1999 at 12:33:27 am (IST).
Sun-Moon conjunction in Taurus sign so according to table it is Jyesta Maas.
So there are 2 conjunction so 2 Jyesta Maas.
One is called “Nija” or Shudha Jeshtha maasa and the other is called “Adhika” Jyeshtha maasa.
Nija means real and adhika means
extra. An adhika maasa (extra month) comes once in every 3 years and that
synchronizes the lunar years with solar years. This calendar has been in use in India for millennia.
First part 15 day and last 15 day of this 2 month is called shudh month.
Middle part of month is extra month or adhimass.

Method of calculations of yoga
1) Add the longitudes of Sun and Moon.
2) Now if greater then 360 then remove 360º from the sum
3) Divide the sum by the length of one nakshatra (13°20′ or 800′).
4)Ignore fractions and take the integer part.
5)Add 1 to it and the result is the index of the yoga running.
6) Now Refer to and find the yoga corresponding to the index.
Time 8:10 am
Sun — 4°53’32” @ Cancer
Moon — 4°15’02” @ Aries
Now we find Yoga at that time.
Sun = 90 + 4°53’32” = 94° 53′ 32″
Moon = 4° 15′ 02″
So Sum = 98° 68′ 34″ = 99° 08′ 34″
For easy in dividing we convert degrees in Minute
Sum = 99 × 60 + 8 + 34″
= 5940 + 8 + 34″
= 5948′ + 34″
For easy dividing we convert Nakhshatra in minute.
1 Nakhshatra = 13°20′
= 13× 60 + 20 ‘
= 780 + 20 = 800
Divide 5984 by 800
5984÷800 = 7.48
Add 1 = 8
Yog is Dhriti .
Native birth time Yoga Is Dhriti Yoga.

People had been researching upon the very fact of life that how the situations in our life our created? How does our life gets affected because of the play of energies as well as under the effect of planetary influences? As one goes through any tough & challenging life situation the most common question always that arises in ones mind is- Why is this happening with me? Why am I victimized?
Now, most of the time, we put that straight on Karma or destiny and no doubt, Karma has its own role as well as destiny too plays its role. To know more about destiny, you may go the my another old blog on “Destiny versus Astrology”-
Let’s not put the blame of our troublesome life situations directly on Karma or destiny but we must understand, how is the energy of though getting converted into the actions, then behaviour, creating situations and thence, bringing results in our day to day life. Our life is a simulation of various milestones which open up in front of us in terms of various life situations. Just like, we begin a journey from one place to another and the milestones are fixed. So, we have to cross all the milestones to reach our destination. Now, you can call these milestones as the situations and the experiences which one has to undergo and one has to face, which is further based on the laws of Karma and ones fate, not destiny, as accumulated karma (sanchit/prarabdha) from past lives.Every individual is one whole microcosmic system in its totality which represents the reflection of macrocosmic system and Astrology deals with the study of every individual horoscope as one system that’s why we study all the Gruhas (Planets) together for it’s results in one’s life. Now, consider every individual as a unique set of combinations of various planetary energies which unite together to form one totally unique life story which is an infinitesimal part of the Kaal-Purusha. Since, every individual life is unique in its every essence so is the planetary combinations for every individual.The whole working mechanism and effect of planetary energies is dependent upon the Prana (Life Force Energy) of the individual. The energies of the Gruhas, they strike in to the pranic energy fields of the individuals through breath, with the mechanism of Ida & Pingla nadi and create a specific vibration which is reflected into the mind of the individual as thought. And, from here begins the seed of creation for life situations.
Moon being the significator of mind; it works as the archery through which the rest of planetary forces strike an arrow during their transit, dasha & bhukti. Now, you can test it by being a witness in any of the life situation that you are facing today. As I mentioned above about the journey & milestones, just consider that you are going through a road to reach your destination; until you stop, stay at a milestone and spend time there, it will certainly get you involved with the various happenings on that particular milestone. What- if you see the milestone (life situation) and continue to move without putting in your time & energy; it will have some impact which shall be experiential in nature but you will save yourself from bigger damage.
In one of the beautiful verse from Bhagwad Gita, Lord conveys: “manah shashthani indryani prakrutisthani karshati”; which states that it is these six- the mind and the five senses which create friction in one’s whole nature. And, that’s what is the whole endeavor of Yoga- “yogah chittvrutti nirodah”; Yoga* works upon removing the delusions of the chitta (consciousness).
*Yoga here refers to any form of yoga; Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, etc.
So, the life situations are just a part of divine play and one must experience & handle any tough situation as an opportunity to see towards the other side of the life and to explore all new horizons of this beautiful universe.
Hope this helps you explore your life situations in the light of this article.

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’s third law of motion and the same are equally powerful, whether we do good or bad karma in any birth or life. All our actions and work in society act 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 the nature of karma, 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 Reincarnation 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 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, whereas 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 Brahma. If we look deeply, Dharma Trikonas in the D1 chart show what are our Total sanchit karmas of the past which have a good karmic part bag in it from the total portion of the karma, and that can come at any moment of life in Dashas, Antar Dasha and in transits.
All the Divisional chart shows the 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, which are described in classical texts which are as follows:-
1. Parashara Drekkana
2. Jagannath Drekkana
3. Somanath Drekkana
4. Privritti-traya Drekkana
What is Parashara Drekkana:
This is the most widely and commonly used Drekkana chart in Vedic astrology used for highlighting information on the siblings, talents, courage, valor, complexion, personality, and trait of the native. Parashara Drekkana is used to know vital information on the sibling of a person and analyze all matters related to co-borns and issues.
What is Jagannath Drekkana:
This is the 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.
What is Somnath Drekkana:
Somnath Drekkana is used to know about Hidden knowledge on the sexual drive of a native and it is also used for analyzing the attitude of a person towards sexual matters and his libido.
What is Privritti-traya Drekkana:
This Drekkana chart is used for understanding the initiatives and efforts of the person for achieving goals and motives. Among all, Jagannath drekkana (D3) is the most important chart to know about the Karma Phala, Karma Yoga or fruits of your actions either from the Past life or from 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 just 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
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 the 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 about 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
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 says that the state of complete inactivity is impossible for the embodied being.No, one can stay away from any sort of action and work. one has to perform every sort of action 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.
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 the doer and categorized into three parts 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
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 the 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 ignorance, then God helps dispel it with his grace. Thus, renunciation of the sense of doer ship 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).
From all that we have found ultimate goal or motive of any soul is Self-realization from all sorts 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)
For More understanding of Karma Theory, Checkout the article on Karma in Astrology :
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 the usual Drekkna chart?
In the Current article, we will study 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 and 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 roots connected with the 8th house. Generally, Drekkana is calculated by dividing each sign into 10-degree 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 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 the below-mentioned Scheme for calculating Jagannath drekkana
Jagannath Drekkana Calculation
For Predictive purposes, 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 is seen for the mind and the Sun is 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 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 the 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 the 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, and Maushya and the presiding diety is Lord Bramha and Rishi Durvasa. fixed signs represented by Tamas Gunna, Rakashas Gana, and the Presiding deity is Lord Shiva and Maharishi Agastya and dual signs represented by Satva Guna, Deva Gana, and the presiding deity are Vishnu and Devarishi Narada.1st Drekkana of Dual signs is karma drekkana represented by devas and Maharishi Narada.
2nd Drekkana of moveable signs represents bhoga ruled by the lord shiva and the person one born here should practice maximum discipline to avoid falling 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.
( Source and information; Varga Chakara, Sanjay Rath )
That is what we had studied in the Karma theory and we called it 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 the life direction of the native for its success or failure, to understand all sorts of fluctuations 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 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 the redemption one can get from his past life karma.
3) Meanwhile, any Planet in the 3rd house of the D3 Shows what the native has to do in the future for fulfilling the goals of life that have been 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 the Tattava or nature of the Signs in the D3 Chart :
All the Chara Rashi’s shows – Bhu-loka (Earth),
All the Sthira Rashi’s shows – Bhuva-loka (Grahas or Deities 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 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 the whole life.
Any Planet in the Sthira Rashi (Bhuva-Loka), shows the 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 with 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 Suffering and painful experiences. The motive could be lying in the eternal growth of the native or future spiritual manifestation of the soul.
Suffering one gets 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 gets at the Bhuva-Loka is at the Aatmic level (Soul realization, Sun Lagna). One might get in the form of wealth, Finance, and Soul transformations which are all represented by the nature of the 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 gets 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 the Jagannath drekkena chart by a 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-karaka 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 the 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 traditional knowledge to the masses for their well-being 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 the same vargottam sign placement in both D1 and D3 charts. Here, the Native soul’s 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, the 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 the 6th and 11th lord, the 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. The most important part is the Virgo sign is the native pakka Lagna Rashi too, which also shows matters related to health.
Karma Yoga of the 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 spiritually in nature including jyotisha – the light of illuminating darkness) and Venus (Knowledge of those are governed by the Material things including healing, Mantric, Tantric or siddhis etc).
This clearly shows that a 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 needs to share it via the modes of technical writing and research Journals.
Chart 2: Swami Viveka-Nanda
In 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 the 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. It’s a good yoga of learning Karma and its pahla by self-realization and, as in Swami Vivekananda’s case Saturn is the 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 and 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, which means one who realized at the Soul level, here Soul experiences are mainly ruled. It is about learning 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’s 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 the 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 will realize his Soul purpose, as Saturn being Bk also the lord of the 2nd and 3rd house in both D1 and D3 charts 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 charts, Karyesha Saturn and other lord Rahu is placed in the sign of Pisces and Taurus getting the Rashi aspect from Jupiter and Sun (Ak).
As the 8th lord moon is involved here with Karyesha Saturn (BK), swami Viveka Nanda will realize 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 deity who illuminates one’s darkness from the soul and karma) and then he will realize his life goal or would understand his task given via his guru teaching, guidance and he will undertake this task Via mediation – Manan (Moon is ruled by the Apara Vidya and also Amk too, shows all form of knowledge one experience, realize or one get it via manan or via senses and it includes all the worldly 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. Science, arts, commerce, management, technical knowledges, 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 the objective world, helps us to serve our society & world better, two, the 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 about the world outside, by this pursuit alone we shall never move towards omniscience. Apara Vidya shall help us to make a living, have a dignified & respectable life, and 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’s eternal goal for this life is to awaken people who are misguided in the path of darkness to move toward balanced material and spiritual knowledge.
In the D3 chart, Karyesha is placed in the 6th house and is the ruler of the 2nd and 3rd houses showing that swamiViveka-Nanda has to accomplish this Karma yoga task via visiting too 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 the 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.
Final Conclusion: I hope from the above-mentioned example charts and understanding of the Jagannath Drekkana D3 chart, one can understand his karma yoga and find his soul purpose, and able to do his destined karma yoga for the future life.
