Who is Shiva ? Understanding Importance of the Lord Shiva based on the view of Swami Sivananda

 

Written by Swami Sivananda

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.

The Sadasiva

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.”

How is our life affected by planetary influences ? Let’s Explore

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.

Love,
V

Mystic Stories behind Mahashivratri

  • In ancient times, a Bheel (forest inhabitant) named Gurudruha traveled through the forest hunting for deer. After a whole day of hunting without success, he climbed up a billva tree on the banks of a lake. Later that night, a doe came to drink water. Immediately, Gurudruha aimed his bow and arrow at the deer. He unknowingly dropped some billva leaves and water below on a Shivaling. The deer begged Gurudruha to hold off on killing her because she wanted to ensure her fawns were safe by bringing them to her husband. Even though he was hesitant, Gurudruha agreed. While waiting for her to return, he stayed awake aimlessly plucking the leaves and dropping them below nonchalantly. The leaves landed on the Shivaling below, and Gurudruha had unknowingly performed Shivaji’s puja all night.
  • Eventually, the doe returned with her family. She told Gurudruha that if he killed her, he would have to kill her family as well. He aimed the bow and arrow at the deer and more leaves fell down on the Shivaling. The punya accumulated from unknowingly performing Shiva’s puja washed away all his sins. Gurudruha’s heart became pure as he repented for his sins and set the deer free. Shiva manifested in front of him and granted him a boon, “You will be born as a man named Gruha in a town called Shrungver. Bhagwan Vishnu will grace your home as Shri Rama and redeem you.” Shiva also blessed the deer.

The Legend of Ketaki Flower

The Ashutosh is fond of flowers like hibiscus, stramoni flower (dudura), dhak (palasha), arakha, cape-jasmine (sugandha-raj) and of course the screw-pine or ketaki. However, ketaki, is offered to the Lord only once in a year; on the occasion of Maha Shivaratri. The story behind this is quite an interesting one.

Retired bank manager Dayanidhi Dash shares the legend of the Holy Trinity and the screw pine. Once the Holy Trinity challenged each other to determine which one of them is the most efficacious. Lord Shiva assumed the form of a rock phallus of immense magnitude (the shiv ling) and the Lords Brahma and Vishnu set out to find out its limit. While Lord Brahma assumed the form of a swan and travelled upward, Lord Vishnu took the form of a boar and explored down. Both searched and searched but there was no end to the divine vastness.

Meanwhile, a tired and irritated Brahma came across a falling flower, a screw pine. When asked about the upper limit of the ling, the flower confessed that it had no idea, as it had fell from the Lord’s head ages back but was yet to reach the ground. In his extreme arrogance, Brahma conspired with the flower and made it a witness to his lie. He came back from the heights and found a tired Vishnu at the base who confessed about not being able to find the end of Rock Phallus. But Brahma, backed up by the screw pine, announced that he had discovered the head of the Shiv ling and plucked the flower from there. At that instant, Lord Shiv appeared to put an end to this folly and cursed both Brahma and Ketaki flower. Brahma was to remain un-worshipped while screw-pine was never to be used in any sacred rituals. However, after much pleading, the rudrasanctioned Brahma one place of worship (the Puskara) and ketakigot the chance to be used in rituals only one day in a year (the Maha Shivaratri).

Essence of Mahashiv-Ratri:

Mahashivaratri (the great night of Shiva) falls on the fourteenth day of the dark fortnight of -Magha-Phalguna (February- March), and is dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva. On this day devotees sing bhajans in honor of Shiva, recite Sanskrit shlokas (verses) from scriptures, offer prayers in the morning and evening, observing fasting throughout the day.
Offering Bilva leaves to Shiva on Shivaratri is considered very auspicious by his devotees.

Maha-Shiv Ratri Purpose is to achieve eternal peace and happiness by worshipping Shiva at night, by meditating on one’s own self during the night when the individual is free from the distractions of the physical world. When the individual attains self-knowledge, he or she can live in the world without being affected by anger, greed, and selfishness, the three enemies of one’s soul. Shiva-ratri symbolizes the worship of the atman within.

According to vedic astrological system, Mahashivaratri is considered as one such day when spritual energy in nature is too high to connect with the divine shiva to achieve spritual growth for the higher transformation. It is conducive to spiritual growth and meditation.

On the specific night of Shivratri, the planetary placement is such that there is a natural tendency for the kundalini energy, housed in the chakra at the base of the spine, to rise up and reach the chakra at top of the head.

Meditation helps to reach at a point when we can experience space of nothingness and love. This experience takes us to the level of higher consciousness, that stage only a siddh yogi achieve via going into depeest state of meditation, that is called state of the Shiva- The Adhi-Yogi (The One).Shivratri is that night which is meant for spiritual seekers for connecting with the divine Nature.

Mahashivratri is the day when the Shiva Tattva (Guru Tattva- Akash – Eternal Knowledge – Braham) is believed to come in contact with the divine earth (Prakarti- Shakti –  Prithvi Tattva – Material). It is believed that during divine night of Maha-Shivratri our higher consciousness, aura, increases ten inches above the material ground or expands in a wide spritual plane. Our Chakaras get align with the nature energy and a sadhak can reaches to the height of Higher chakra – the chakra of One – OM.

On this day, consciousness descends and touches the Prithvi Tattva.
That is why Mahashivratri is celebrated across the universe – it is the day of  wedding of  Shiva and Shakti (the Twin Particle of Prithvi and Aakash Tattva) the material world (Earth) with the spiritual world ( Brahmand).Sivaratri is a blessed occasion for all to practise self-restraint, self-control, contemplation, Svadhyaya, Japa and meditation, as much as possible within our capacity. We have the whole of the night at our disposal. We can do Japa or we can do the chanting of the Mantra, ‘Om Namah Sivaya’. We can also meditate. It is a period of Sadhana. The glory of God is displayed before us in the form of these spiritual occasions.

Past life Astrology: How to analyse Life Purpose, Past life Karma phala and Destiny via Jagannatha Drekkena (D3 chart)

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

Introduction

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

Astrology says, 

“Avashyam anubhoktavyam kruta karma shubhashubham”

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is the Natal Chart all about?

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

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

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

1. Parashara Drekkana2. Jagannath Drekkana

3. Somanath Drekkana

4. Privritti-traya Drekkana

Parashara Drekkana:

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

Jagannath Drekkana: 

 

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

Somnath Drekkana:

 

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

Privritti-traya Drekkana: 

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

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

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

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

 

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 2, Verse 47

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

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

Translation

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

Commentary by Swami Muktananda : 

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

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

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

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

4) Do not be attached to inaction.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 18, Verse 11

 

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

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

Translation

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

The explanation was given by Swami Mukundananda

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

 

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 18, Verse 27

 

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

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

Translation

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

The explanation was given by Swami Mukundananda

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

Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 5, Verse 14

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

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

Translation

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

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

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

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

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

Conclusion:

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

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

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

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

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

(Source: Speaking tree) 
Karma and Liberation:

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

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

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

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

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

Why sinful acts:

In the last section of this chapter, Arjuna asks,

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

Krishna answers that it is lust (material desire) :

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

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

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

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

 

Jagannath Drekkana Calculation 

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

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

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

Below is the chart for same:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Step 1: What you have to do

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Decoding Past Birth Root cause – Karma Phala

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Karma Theory in vedic astrology part 3: Decoding Sanchita, Prarabdha, Agami and Kriyamana karma Astrologically

 

 

The Karma Theory:  What is Rebirth in Karma Theory, Understanding Karmic Relationships and its magnitude and  4 major Karmas –  Sanchita, Prarabdha, Agami and Kriyamana karma are Astrologically connected with the Birth chart.

Introduction
In the Previous version of this Article series, we tried to understood how three ways an individual performs its Karma astrologically as well spiritually based on the philosophy of Swami Sivananda Saraswati ji. Users can read our previous part from this link: The Karma Theory Part 2. In the Current version of this series we will try to understand the Rebirth process, Karmic relations and How 4 Major karmas play an important role in our life both spiritually and astrologically.
 
Let us understand the Rebirth and Karmic Magnitude of our karmas one by one.
 
First, we need to understand what is Rebirth or reincarnation?
 

What is Rebirth (Reincarnation)

Rebirth is a mystic process of cosmos where one past Desire gives rise to the new opportunity for new birth (Astrologically Rahu and Kama Trikona houses seen for all desires of pasts and presents), even this desire also responsible for falling into a cycle of birth and death and numerous new karma. The more we work to acquire the object of our desires, the more it produces the new karma, it can be fruitful or painful too. All these desires are responsible for a birth cycle and responsible for taking birth after birth to reap the fruits of our karmas, this is what called the law of karma.
The wheel of life cycle keeps continues until the soul (Jivatma) has Karma attached to it. The cycle of birth, life, and death will keep continuing in a process of cosmos until all the Karma is fully consumed (when Sanchit goes to zero- No Debit, No Credit – State of Moksha- Seen via 9th and 12th house and the strength of the AK). As per the Cosmic laws, when the revolution of the wheel of life is completed, a new process of life begins again with new karma and rebirth cycle. This is how divine is maintaining the law of birth cycle and how actually Karma works with every birth we take in a physical body.
“Many of those Karmas leads us in the journey of life to life, from the first manifestation as an amoeba to the last manifestation the 8.4 millionth manifestations.”
The process of rebirth continues until there is a balance in the Karmic account. The soul is liberated from the karmic bondage when the Karmic balance is consumed totally (i.e Sum total will be zero, Soul will be liberated from the cycle, will get Moksha from the process- astrologically Karka Sign Pisces and Ketu in 12th from Karka-amsa seen for getting moksha as per the principals mentioned in Jamini Sutra. but it is more of a general rule, holistic chart analysis always required. Though there is no science which can reveal about moksha of the soul, it is totally in the hands of the supreme divine, astrology is only a tool which can give us clue to understanding the karmic cycle of the soul).

http://www.thekundaliniyoga.org | By Mahendra Joshi)

How Karmic account balance is maintained?


The accumulated result of all actions from all our past lifetimes is called “Sanchita Karma”. The interesting part is how this account of Karmic Credit/Debt is maintained. It is never maintained as a total net balance (as done in the case of a bank account) but always stored as a separate account of Credit and Debit that never cancels each other, for each soul.

What are the Types of Karma

According to the SATGURU SIVAYA SUBRAMUNIYA SWAMI ji Karma broadly defined as the universal principle of cause and effect, action and reaction which governs our all life actions. Karma is a natural law of the mind, just as gravity is a law of matter which attracts thoughts and actions. Karma is not fate, for man acts with free will, creating his own destiny. The Vedas tell us, if we sow goodness, we will reap goodness; if we sow evil, we will reap evil. Karma refers to the totality of our actions and their concomitant reactions in this and previous lives, all of which determines our future. It is the interplay between our experience and how we respond to it that makes karma devastating or helpfully invigorating. The conquest of karma lies in intelligent action and dispassionate reaction. Not all karmas rebound immediately. Some accumulate and return unexpectedly in this or other births. The several kinds of karma are: personal, family, community, national, global and universal. Ancient rishis perceived personal karma’s three-fold edict. The first is sañ chita, the sum total of past karmas yet to be resolved. The second is prârabdha, that portion of sañ chita to be experienced in this life. Kriyamâna, the third type, is karma we are currently creating.

Is There Good Karma and Bad Karma?

In the highest sense, there is no good or bad karma. All the experience offers opportunities for spiritual growth. Selfless acts yield positive, uplifting conditions. Selfish acts yield conditions of negativity.Karama springing from the root “Kri” – “to do” or “to make” or more simply, “action”. The deeper meaning of Karma can be described as an infinite chain of the results of an action that is perceived and performed. Karma is a concept of wisdom, based on the Ancient Vedas and Upanishads, which explains a system where beneficial events are derived from past beneficial actions and harmful events from past harmful actions, creating a chain of actions and reactions throughout a person’s reincarnated lives.

When we talk about “Our Karma” we’re talking about the actions we’ve “sown” or performed in the past (including our past lives) that are the cause of what we “reap” in our current life situation. This either becomes our Karmic Burden or Karmic Baggage or our Karmic Blessing depending on whether we’ve performed positive or negative actions in the past.
Every action, either physical, emotional or mental, every movement occurring either on the plane of gross matter (School am) or on the astral planes (Sookshma), causes emission of Energy. In other words, it produces a Seed.
Being a Seed, Karma fructifies or does not fructify immediately after it is sown. The innumerable Karmic Seeds we produce by our various actions – desire, aversion, love, hatred, happiness, etc. will undoubtedly produce, sooner or later, a positive or negative result according to the nature of the seed, if not in this life, then in some future one.
The Vedas propound, “Here they say that a person consists of desires. And as is his desire, so is his will. As is his will, so is his deed. Whatever deed he does, that he will reap.”
Karma should not be confused with Fate. Fate is the notion that man’s life is preplanned for him by some external power, and he has no control over his destiny. Karma, on the other hand, can be corrected. Because man is a Conscious Being and he can be aware of his Karma and thus strive to change the course of events, with the help of superior powers.

Dancing with Siva -Hinduism’s Contemporary Catechism

by SATGURU SIVAYA SUBRAMUNIYASWAMI)

Some karma can be changed and some cannot. When you prepare halwa, if sugar is less or ghee is less, water more or less, it can all be adjusted, repaired. But once sooji is cooked, it cannot be reversed. If the buttermilk is sour, milk can be added, salt can be added to make it drinkable. But it can never be reversed back to milk. Prarabdha karma cannot be changed. Sanchita karma can be changed by spiritual practices. Listening and practising spiritual practices (i.e Meditation, Tapa, Japa and Homam ) with learned spiritual gurus can burn the seed of all negative karma. When you praise someone, you take on their good karma. When you blame someone you take on their bad karma. One should Know this and surrender both good and bad karma to the Divine and be free.
To live a good and happy life, every man should have a comprehensive understanding of God’s Cosmic System (law of Karma), and its operations. If a man acquires this karmic knowledge and puts it into practice, then he can pull on in this world smoothly and happily. He can utilize the helping forces to serve his ends in the best possible manner. He can neutralize the hostile or antagonistic currents. Just as the fish swims against the current, so also he will be able to go against the hostile currents by adjusting himself properly and safeguarding himself through suitable precautionary methods. God helps those (to some extent) who understand and apply the law of Karma in their life.
In the absence of knowledge of the functioning of God’s Cosmic System (Law of karma), man becomes a slave (of his desires). He is tossed around here and there helplessly by various currents in his present life. Various hostile forces (generated because of his past actions) drag him in different directions. He drifts like a wooden log in a river. He always leads a miserable and unhappy life even if he has all the wealth and possessions in this world.

The Three Levels of Karmic Magnitude

 

In addition to the four kinds of karma, there are three levels of magnitude to any given karma. Karma can be fixed/strong or non-fixed/weak, or a combination of the two. If the karma is strong then the predetermined event will almost certainly happen. If the karma is weak then it may be relatively easy to avert it. The three levels of magnitude are:

According to Buddhism Karma theory, Fixed karmas are immutable karma that produces fixed or set result, whether it is negative or positive.

There are four causes of fixed karma:

1.Actions motivated by exceptionally strong earthly desires or by a profoundly pure mind.

2.Actions, whether good or evil, done habitually.

3. Actions, whether good or evil, performed in relation to such sources of benefit as the three treasures of Buddhism.

4. Actions causing harm to one’s parents. Fixed karma may also be interpreted as karma whose effects are destined to appear at a fixed time.

In this case, fixed karma may be of three types depending on when its effects will appear:

(1) karma whose effects are destined to appear in the same lifetime.

(2) karma whose effects are destined to appear in the next lifetime.

(3) karma whose effects are destined to appear in a third or even later lifetime.

“As a general rule, lighter karma is said to manifest itself in the same lifetime that it was created, while exceptionally good or bad karma will be carried over into subsequent lifetimes. Fixed karma was traditionally considered unchangeable, but Nichiren states in his writing On Prolonging One’s Life Span, “Karma also may be divided into two categories: fixed and unfixed. Sincere repentance will eradicate even fixed karma, to say nothing of karma that is unfixed”

Astrologically Fixed, Mixed and Unfixed karma’s are categorized into Dashas and transits.

1. Fixed karma (Dridha – Dasha System )This is karma that cannot be changed by any effort on our part. Only the grace of God can alter fixed karma (Dridha). Dashas in Natal or Divisional charts( i.e Vimsotri, Rasi or Nakashtra based dashas) indicates what is definitively going to happen in your destiny which cannot be changed is Dridha Karma or fixed Karma.

2. Mixed karma (Dridha/Adridha)This is karma that can be changed but only with substantial effort. These are those Karmas which may or may not fruity.

3. Non-Fixed karma (Adridha – Transits of Planets)This is karma that can be easily changed with some effort. Transit of Planets in your Natal or Divisional charts indicates those karma’s which can be changed by some efforts. these results may or may not happen if it is not in your destiny.

The Four Types of Karma

Karma is primarily of four kinds:

1. Sanchita Karma (9th, 1st, and 5th house): (Sum Total Karma or “Accumulated actions”)

Total collected bows are like Sanchit Karma
Sanchita Karma is the vast store of piled-up Karma accumulated in the preceding and in all other previous births and yet to be resolved, it is the accumulated result of all your actions from all your past lifetimes and from the current lifetime till this moment. This Sanchita Karma is our total Karmic debt (combination of Karmic Credit and Karmic Debt.). In other words, it is the aggregate sum of yet unseen Karmas committed during innumerable previous existences. Every moment of every day we are adding to the account by performing a Good or Bad Karma. This is your total cosmic debt. Every moment of your every day, you are either adding to it or you are reducing this cosmic debt. It is waiting to be fulfilled in your future births. We also reduce Karma balance from our account sometimes (Those rare moments in a day when we are doing meditation, spiritual practice, selfless service etc.)
So unless and until the Sanchita Karma of a Soul is zeroed, it keeps on birthing in new physical bodies, in order to exhaust its balance of Sanchita Karma. This is your total cosmic debt. Every moment of every day either you are adding to it or you are reducing this cosmic debt.
Astrologically Sanchit Karamas are Stored Karamas which can come at any time to surprise the life progress and actions. Grand trines( 1, 5 and 9th) are mainly seen for Sanchit karamas which indicates how life progress and how dharma progress in our current life because of the punyas of the past life.

2. Prarabdha Karma ( 6th house and 6th Lord ): ( Fructifying Karma or “Actions began; set in motion” or Arrows in Flight)

Total Deeds or portion in the collected Karmas are Praradbha that one has to reap in any case.
That portion of the Sanchita Karma destined to influence human life in one or the present incarnation is called Praarabdha. This is a portion of your “sanchita” Karma being worked on in the present life. That is part of one’s Sanchita Karma which must be worked out in the present life (no options).It is a collection of total past karmas, which are ready to be experienced through the present body (incarnation). Because the law of Karma implies determinism in human activities, Prarabdha is often translated as destiny. When you work down your agreed upon debt in this lifetime, then more past debts surface to be worked upon in the next birth.
In other words, Praarabdha Karma is Karmic Template (of that portion of Sanchita Karma) that is ripe enough to be experienced by you and allotted for this lifetime for you to work on. If you work down your agreed upon debt in this lifetime, then more past debts will surface to be worked on. And that much Sanchita Karma gets dissolved.
According to Sri Swami Sivananda: “Prarabdha is that portion of the past karma which is responsible for the present body. That portion of the sanchita karma which influences human life in the present incarnation is called prarabdha. It is ripe for reaping. It cannot be avoided or changed. It is only exhausted by being experienced. You pay your past debts. Prarabdha karma is that which has begun and is actually bearing fruit. It is selected out of the mass of the sanchita karma.
Each lifetime, a certain portion of the sanchita karma, most suited for the spiritual evolution at the time, is chosen to be worked out, during the course of the lifetime. Subsequently, this Prarabdha Karma creates circumstances which we are destined to experience in our present lifetime, they also place certain limitations via our physical family, body or life circumstances we are born into, as charted in our birth chart or horoscope, collectively known as fate or destiny (determinism).
Jyotish, the Vedic Astrology and any other authentic method of Astrology, at it’s best, can reveal only the Praarabdha Karma. Thus the Natal Horoscope is the Blue Print of the Karmic Energy Patterns of the Praarabdha Karma only.
Astrologically Prarabdha karma is mainly seen from 6th house – house of sufferings and debits from past birth ( 10th from 9th house), that’s why it indicates 6 weaknesses which make us weak in our actions. this is the main reason the 6th house is seen for all sort of diseases and sufferings which cant be avoided ever in life. Where ever the 6th lord goes in Natal D1 chart that houses tells what are the good and bad results which cant be altered or can’t be fixed. if 6th lord goes in 9th- Misery to father and luck will play a major role and person cant avoid those situations. if 6th lord goes in 11th- financial hardship will be there and some things have to face with respect to elder brothers. this way you can check where your Prarabdha Karama goes and in which life direction.
There are three kinds of Prarabdha karma: Ichha (personally desired), Anichha (without desire) and Parechha (due to others’ desire). For a self-realised person, a Jivan mukta, there is no Ichha-Prarabdha but the two others, Anichha and Parechha, remain, which even a jivan mukta has to undergo.
Prarabdha’ (Devanagari: प्रारब्ध) is employed in the Nada Bindu Upanishad verse 21 as follows in Devanagari for probity and as rendered in English by K. Narayanasvami Aiyar (1914)
आत्मानं सततं ज्ञात्वा कालं नय महामते | प्रारब्धमखिलं भुञ्जन्नोद्वेगं कर्तुमर्हस
O intelligent man, spend your life always in the knowing of the supreme bliss, enjoying the whole of your Prarabdha (that portion of past Karma now being enjoyed) without making any complaint (of it)

3. Kriyamana Karma: (10th House and its lord, Saturn) (Instant, Current Karma or “Being made” or Ready to Shoot, Trigger in your hand)

An arrow set to mark for the target is Kiryamana Karma
Kriyamana Karma is the daily, instant Karma created in this lifetime and that we create in our life because of our free actions.In General, This is Karma that we create in our daily life because of our thoughts, will, and actions. It refers to those which are currently in front of us to decide or act on. All the karmas which are done In our sub-conscious mind. It refers to the decisions before us to act upon.This contributes to our Future Karma in a big way. They can also be worked off immediately. These are debts that are created and worked off – i.e. for example, you park your vehicle in a ‘No Parking Space’, you get caught and you are fined (punished) immediately. Wrong thought leads to bad action i.e You decided to kill someone, you did it and you got punished.
(i.e. you speed on a highway and you get a ticket. Karma is created and consumed immediately in this case.)
While some Kriyamana Karmas bear fruit in the current life, others are stored for enjoying in future births. Thus the Kriyamana Karma is classified into two sub-categories: Arabdha Karma – literally, ‘begun, undertaken;’ the Karma that is ‘sprouting’-
and Anarabdha Karma – ‘not commenced; dormant’ or ‘The Seed Karma’. An example: two persons committed theft and one of them get caught – Arabdha Karma – and the other one got away – Anarabdha Karma. The thief who got caught immediately starts to feel the effect of the cause or the reaction to his action; he gets caught and goes to jail. The other robber who escaped will have to experience, in this life or in a future one, the effect of this wrongful action.
Kriyamana Karama seeds lie in 10th house which indicates what we do now will reap our next birth, it indicates those actions which we choose for our next cause or birth. So always watch your 10th house and its lord to see where our next birth goes and in which direction. Malefic in 10th house or 10th lord with malefic indicates we are doing something wrong in this birth and can lead to bad next birth.

 

4. Agami Karma (4th House & its lord and Moon): (Future Karma)

An Arrow which is going to Set in the Bow is Agami Karma that is not yet released but in the process of releasing to hit target. It is more like Mansa karma
Aagami Karma is the Karmic Map that is coming, Approaching or Future Karma: This is the Karma or the actions that are now going to be done which will give their results later in the future. Some of Agami Karmas bear fruit in the current life; others are stored for future births in the form of Sanchita Karma as a result of the merits and demerits of the present actions of your current birth. In other words, it is the portion of Karma that is created because of the actions in the present life and that will be added to your Sanchita Karma. If you fail to work off your debt, then more debts are added to Sanchita Karma and they become more Karmic Seeds and are served to you in more future lives.
Agami Karama is mainly seen for future plotting work done for next birth, which means it indicates what we wanted to do now are what i am doing right now which is actually your thought processing – your current state of mind, Moon and 4th house and its lord is seed of the Aagmi Karama. What your thought can bring you, what you do after it which is actually goes in the direction of Kiryamani Karma(10th house). So always watch your Aagmi Karama as it will become your Kiryamani Karma. Any Malefic in 4th house , 4th lord with Malefic planet or Affliction to Moon will leads to Bad Karma and accumulated bad karma for next birth and this birth.
The Sanchita Karma (as well as Prarabdha karma) are stored in Chittakash space.

Karmic account – Sanchita Karma – The Credit and Debit System

 

There is a huge difference in Karmic and Mundane accounts balance. Mundane accounts work on trial balance system where one has to match credit and debit account equally but in the case karmic account system we need to see a portion of karma from the sum total of accumulated karma.
In case of Karmic account (Sanchita Karma) the Credit (good karma) and Debit (bad karma) are always maintained separately. The Credit and debit never cancel (subtract from) each other (unlike a bank account). The reason to maintain both the Credit / Debit is that the soul (Jivatma) has to face consequences of each type of karma (good as well as bad) through the cycle of several births and deaths. Good Karma is used to deliver rewards, while the bad Karma balance is used to deliver the punishments, in the chain of lives that soul will go through in the future.
Since every soul (Jivatma) must face the consequences of his karma (good and bad) the balance (credit and debit) is always kept separately and never cancelled against each other.

Dispensation of  Karama.

According to the process of Karama theory, karmas never give their results in one go at one instance only a certain portion of karma is taken out from the accumulated karmas (sanchita karma). During this process, many of the ripe karmas including the accumulated sanchita join together with the prarabdha karama and bring one life for the body. This indicates total karma of the present life (Sum of Prarabdha and Sanchita) that can be seen from the Natal chart planetary placement, Natal birth chart is nothing but only the blueprints of Sanchit and Prardbha Karama, including your both good and bad karma’s we had done in many of our past life.
During the process of rebirth or reincarnation, when a soul takes or enters in a new body in mother womb, Karma is dispensed as his Prarabdha Karma. If we see deeply according to Bhagwad Geeta and Vedanta theory,  The Divine Supreme Almighty plays here a major role as in dispensing the ‘fruits’ of Karma in any of birth we take in the physical body. Physical body Karma purpose is to exhaust our Prabraha karma’s (Ripe one) so that the soul can be filtered for his next journey. For his next Journey, the role of Kiryamani and agami karma plays a key and deciding role for the type of birth one can take.
Below mentioned Quote from Bhagwad Geeta, Chapter 3: Karma-yoga says perfectly why we cannot live a minute without doing new karma and why it is so important for the next birth and attaining perfection in our karma:
Na karmanam anarambhanNaiskarmyam puruso ‘snuteNa ca sannyasanad evaSiddhim samadhigacchati
TRANSLATION
Not by merely abstaining from work can one achieve freedom from reaction, nor by renunciation alone can one attain perfection.
The Ripe karma where we are born with is called Prarabdha Karma and it is the ultimate Destiny of the soul in current life. The Good portion of the Prarabdha karma acts like rewards in current birth (including body will have Good health, Wealth, intelligence, matching partner, good children and so on., astrologically seen from the Artha (2, 10th and 11th) and Trikonas (1,5 and 9). The bad portion of the Prarabdha karma gives us punishments in the form of Disabilities/diseases, Poverty, lack of intelligence, wrong partner, betrayal by the children and so on.(Astrologically it is seen from the strength or weakness of the 6th/6th Lord and weakness of Lagnesh (1st) and Strong 8th house/lord, More the 8th house has malefic more it give us karmic sufferings in relationships).In Natal Birth Chart Every house Speaks about the Prardbha and Sanchit karma, but more it gives us clue for ripe karmas and sanchita karma is acting as reserve karma and that can come out at any time.
The sum total account of Sanchita Karma is keep updating every moment by our own actions.
In case of higher divine souls i.e Yogis and Saints: The account of Sanchita Karma is almost 0. Their actions add very small portion of credit/debit to the total accumulated Karama (Sanchita).
(Source and reference: http://www.thekundaliniyoga.org | By Mahendra Joshi)
Conclusion :
Any Purified or Karmic soul (those are in the process) should have to do Karma without any attachments and getting any expectation of the fruit from karma as it never gone generate any good or bad karma even though they are doing karma in society but it will never be add up in their total karmic portion. Their Karma will act like purified Karma as it doesn’t have any attachments and expectation and hence it does not add to the karmic balance for the next journey, it will be more like a Punya karma. The whole purpose of this article was to give astrological redemption based on the theory of Karama as explained in Bhagwad Geeta by Lord Krishna and in Vedanta, just to the enlightened and awake subconscious mind. Without the inspiration of A.V Sundaram Sir book ( Insights of nadi) and the Notes of Mahendra Joshi ji and Sivananda Swami ji won’t be able to compile this article intro astrological form.
Note: For getting more understanding on Kundalini and KaramaYoga and Spirituality, users are requested to visit http://www.thekundaliniyoga.org and http://www.sivanandaonline.org for getting spiritual enlightenment and those are Astrological enthusiasts they should read the book ” Insights in Nadis : By A.V Sundram Sir “ to get more understanding on Karama based on secrets of Nadi concepts.

The essence of Mahishasura Mardini Stotram

 


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

Astrologically Bull symbolises the Mahisasura which signifies over ambition, Aggression, over confidence, Power, Unpredictable nature, Perseverance and male Fertility. it is a symbol of fertility through sacrifice.Bull being a Taurus sign seen for the arrogance (bully nature), direction-less ambitions, fighting nature, hunger for power, pride and excessive sexual desires those are uncontrollable for any being if it is being afflicted by the Nodes and Rajasic Planets.  Symbolically bull is masculine in nature so there is an implication of the bull signifies strength,valor , over aggression and male fertilisation, the more you preserve the fertility more you have strength, valor and courage to fight and more you can balance your mundane desires those are moving aimlessly or direction less in nature. The more you loose Veera (the Male fertility) , more you loose control over you anger, balance and the more you feel weak internally and physically.  Historically it is a symbol of fighting ability and male fertility that gives valor and magnanimity.In Spiritual Reality, over sexual desires leads to higher passion, Aggression, and loose control of temper for every men, ultimately it  will leads to many weaknesses which generates fear of losing power inside any soul which is symbolically represented by the Mahishasura, is a  Bull (Taurus) that shows to get anything in any cost and The goddess Chandika (Rising Moon in Shuakal Pakasha ) represents the trans-formative and filtering power and with the help of divine mother force any men can conquer  their asuric tendencies as seen in the form Mahishasura in them. In Vedic Trends Chanda or chandals represents those who are mean , having higher passion, anger prone, or cruelty in their nature. Logically they shows animalistic and impurity in soul.

When such qualities are in excessive quantities it is called as called chandalas or those who lives in Tamas Guna means considered as impure, devoid of pure energy required to reach higher chakras.  Mahaishasura as The buffalo represents brutality and vile human nature.Two horns signifies the evil hidden in creation. This is the reason why the battle between Maa Chandika and Mahisha asura is symbolism  of the battle between good and evil.Even it also shows the transformative process human beings can purify their animalistic sexual nature present in mind and body and only divine mother has that capability to turn a animal into human. One, who aspire to purify their minds and bodies should unconditionally surrender  to Divine Mother durga, surrendering unconditionally to her would take up the responsibility of your life and transform you miraculously.Thus, Reciting Mahisasura Mardini and reading about the story of Mahisasura represents the deeper and a higher spiritual lessons for those are  seeking liberation.

Those who are facing trouble in controlling higher desires and passions because of the animalistic nature (tamas) in mind and body and always feel restless, lack of peace and instability in their spiritual practice, they should pray to the Mother Goddess  Durga to transform them into a positive person with the preponderance of sattva Guna. The Divine Mother will help you to control your animalistic passions and become a divine and pious person even She will helps you in destroying your evil karma to move further in the path of higher liberation or mukti from all mundane desires.

Maa Durga and story of Mahishasura


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

 

Story of Battle between Maa Durga and Mahisahsura  lying from the Deva and Asura Sangram when Devas were defeated by the Asuras and they were controlling by the Demons. Thousands of years ago, there was a Demon called Mahishasura. He was part demon and part buffalo born from the union of the Asura Rambha and Beautiful female Buffalo Mahisi actually the princess Shyamala cursed to be a buffalo.

Later Mahishasura meditated for thousands of years so he could please Lord Brahma and in return be blessed with immortality and power. After much penance,  Lord Brahma came to him and said, “I am very pleased with your devotion. Ask me any boon that you desire.”

The arrogant Mahishasura said, “Lord, I don’t want any man or God to be able to kill me and only i can be killed  by a women.”

Armed with this boon, Mahishasura considered himself immortal, as no man or God could lay hands on him. He went berserk. In his rage and pride, he practically destroyed the Earth. The lands were soon covered in his darkness and his massacres were widespread. Not only that, he chased away the Gods out of heaven.

Scared, the Gods went running to Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and narrated their misfortune.They pleaded for protection and said that if something was not done soon, the heavens and the earth and all the beings there, would be destroyed.The lords Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva were hopping mad. They conferred for a moment. And then they held each other and started to radiate a blinding light. A light never seen before. A light so bright, that even the sun paled in comparison. Seeing this, the other Gods also joined in and the light shone even brighter. Out of this beautiful light, was born the ten armed Goddess Durga, the embodiment of Adi Shakti.

Being a woman, there was nothing stopping Goddess Durga from killing Mahishasura, as his boon only protected him from men and Gods. Such was the cunning and smartness of Lord Brahma.

One by one the gods approached her and gifted her a dazzling array of weapons.

The mighty Sudarshan chakra was given to her by Lord Vishnu.

Lord Shiva gave her a dangerous Trishul.

She got a Quiver full of arrows from Lord Varuna, the God of the Sea.

Lord Yama, the God of Death, gave her a powerful Sceptre.

Lord Indra, a Thunderbolt, to rattle the earth.

Lord Vishwakarma, the Architect of the Gods, a menacing axe.

Kaal, or Time, gave her a sharp sword.

She got a kamandal, or pitcher, from Lord Brahma.

Agni gifted a flaming dart.

Airavata, Indra’s white elephant, gave Goddess Durga a bell.

Its noise helped her confuse the demons.

The mighty Himalayas gave Goddess Durga a lion to ride upon.

Armed with ten weapons gifted to her by the gods, one for each arm, she looked ready to show Mahishasura who the boss was and went into battle with him.

Maa Durga battled Mahishasura for ten whole days.

On the tenth day, she managed to chop off his head with her sword.

This shows the essence of why Navaratri festival is to be celebrated for 9 days and then in 10th days victory is to be celebrated after defeating and slaying the demon.

Astrological Importance of Devotion of Maa Durga


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


In astrological importance Worshipping of the Maa Durga and Maha Kali has dependent on the phases of Moon ( 4th house – House of aspiration for Bhakti Marg and Moksh) and Moon being Karka of Mother represented by the Divine Mother and Goddess Devi Bhagwati (Durga).  Strength of the moon in Natal chart in between the two phases shows which which Form of the divine mother helping us in conquering our desires, and we should seek divine blessings to kill our Demon in resides in our mind, body and soul.When Moon is stronger in Shukla pakasha  is well placed in chart it shows the blessings of  Mother Durga and when Moon is weak or debilitated in Krishna Paksha it shows the form of Bhadra kali or blessings of Maa Kali to conquer the negative traits those are controlled by mind.

One can worship Goddess Durga/Kali based on the position of the moon in natal, Karkamsa and D20 chart after analysing the paksha bala and influencing of various planets on Moon  :
Below are following information on Form of Divine mother based on Moon signs placements in different signs, as seen in any chart:

1) When Moon is in Aries it  Shows Mother Chamunda (those who kills Chand and Mund, highly aggressive in nature shows nature of Mars with it is with moon).

2) When Moon is in Taurus it shows the motherly figure form of Durga so it should give worshipping of  Maa durga, as rahu Mool trikona sign is taurus.
3) When Moon is in Gemini it also shows Durga when divine Mother helps her devotee to get their budhi in right path as its exaltation sign is Rahu exaltation where one need to seek right devotion rather than moving toward unrighteous path.
4)  When moon is in Cancer it shows Goddess Kali, the natural House of Kali when mother sits in the natural sign of Moksha and bhakti and aspires devotee toward true devotion to sacrifice all the comforts and seek dark deity in motherly form for mukti and bhakti.
5) Moon in Leo shows the form of Kali who is in fierce form ready to burn the Kundalini of devotee in right path for perfect Sadhana.6) When Moon is in Virgo it shows the  Durga who is intelligent enough to guide the devotee budhi in right dharmic and Karmic path.7) When Moon is in  Libra it shows the form of Kali who is encouraging the devotee the follow the path of right dharma when it is a matter of Karmic relations.

8) When moon is in Scorpio it shows the form of  Kali as moon start getting weaker in this sign where Dark energies rises too in this sign, so to get protection from those energies worshipping kali is always best suggested in Asthami tithi in Krishna pakasha. Astrologically its Ketu own sign too.

9) When Moon is in Sagittarius it also shows the form of  Kali where devotees are in deep sadhana for awakening their kundalini Shakti for getting higher spiritual and dharmic wisdom. Astrologically Ketu gets exaltated here.

10) When Moon is in Capricorn it shows the form of  Kali where she sits in Shamshaan where devotes aspires for getting the siddh sadhana or blessings in their path. Devotees here are very good in sadhana too. Here goddess kali guides devotees toward right path for moksha.

11) When Moon is in Aquarius it shows the form of Durga the own mooltrikona sign of  Rahu where Mother durga kills the internal Kama,  hidden desires those are hurdles in the path of true wisdom and true spirituality. Here devotees need to surrender their desires in order to get blessings from Maa durga.

12) when Moon is in Pisces it shows the form  Kali, the Mool-trikona sign  of Ketu where divine mother aspires devotees toward moving in the path of Moksha and for understanding true sadhna and diving deep in bhakti and spirituality.

For understanding the true nature of  Divine mother as Natural Ishata from Natal chart one need to check the relation of Moon with other planets in D1, D9 ( trines from Karkamsa) and D20 chart ( Moon and trines/lord from D20 lagana). Most important relation or influence with the 5th house/Lord is most important in understanding which Deity is influencing us in our bhakti marg it could be of Shiva, Gauri or Vishnu but when that planet is influenced by the Moon it changes its form in Devi form (Either Durga/Kali, depending on Pakasha bala of moon). For e.g If  Moon is placed in the 5th house influenced by mars  then it shows the form of  Chamunda. When Moon is influenced  with the Saturn then it shows the form of  Kali. When Moon is with Ketu house in 5th house or it is being influenced by the Ketu or  it is placed in sign of Mars it also shows Kali. When Moon is placed with Rahu either in 5th or trines to lagana it shows the form of  Durga. Even Rahu alone in 5th house shows the form of Durga as Natural deity in chart. The Same principal we can See from trine from Karka amsa too, When Moon, Saturn, Mars or Rahu falls in trine from Karkamasa it also shows the form of devi depending on the which sign they are placed. Usually Watery signs shows the Devi form and Fiery  and Dual Signs shows Vishnu form as Natural Deity but  before approaching to natural deity one must need to thoroughly analyse the D20 chart. Even Placement of Venus with Rahu or Moon also shows form of Maha-maya as in  Maha-laxmi form or can say one of Shakti peeth of Devi. When  Moon is  influenced by Mercury it shows the form of  Tripura Sundari  or form of Lalita Devi.

 

Even we can further Divides Goddess Durga 9 forms in different planets as worshipped during Navratri.

1) Sun Shows worshiping of  Shailputri
2) Moon Shows gauri
3) Mars shows form of  Skanda Mata
4) Mercury shows form of  Katyayani Mata
5) Jupiter shows form of  Brahmacharini
6) Venus shows form of  Kushmandi
7) Saturn shows fierce form of  Kalaratri
8) Rahu shows  Chandraganta

9) Ketu shows Siddhidatri
Now, coming to main essence of Reciting Mahishsura Mardini Stotra helps one to get victory over all difficulties in life. So, here is the stotra for same as translated by S.N Sastri composed by Adi Shankaracharya.
Mahishasura Mardini Stotram

The Karma Theory in vedic astrology part 1: Astrology and karma

 

The Karma Theory in vedic astrology part 1:  Astrology and karma theory, understanding Karma Astrologically

Definition of Karma and Its relation with astrology: What is Karma?
Introduction
karma theory in astrology

Karma is the Sanskrit word for “action” or “deed”,  Any physical or mental action is considered as Karma.

In Astrological language, we refer Saturn & Mars in the top category for karaka of physical karmas, Means those karmas we actually do or perform in the material world with our fully conscious mind based on Some of our action plans and logic involvement. All these Karmas are based on physical means and motives.

Then there is another level of Karmas to always resides and keep growing in the hidden corner of our mind, those are fall into the category of Mental or sub-conscious level karmas.

Mental Karmas or sub-conscious level karmas are those karmas we actually Manipulate in our hidden corner of the brain or those always lives in Mana (one of Sense).

These Karmas keep flourishing in the dreamy world or in an imaginary world and always keep busy in building stories that have no link with the practical or real world based on our unfinished desires, logic’s we left for future and those hidden Mean & Motives which we were never able to fructify.

Here both Mercury(Brain) and Moon(Mind) are key manipulators for building those imaginary Mana Based Karmas and Role of imbalanced Vishudhi chakra energy is key here for yielding into something imaginary if we see in Deep prospects. Reason being Visudhi chakra role is to Purify not only on the physical level but also on the level of the psyche and mind. All those unpleasant experiences that we have suppressed in our life, continue to reside in the subconscious mind until they are faced and resolved with higher wisdom of native. If this Chakra is not fully developed or in imbalanced state certain difficulties regarding mind may be experienced by the native. Blockage of the Vishuddhi Chakra produces feelings of anxiety, lack of freedom, restriction, thyroid and throat problems in general.

Frankly Speaking in Astrological language Both Moon and Mercury are only responsible for Mana based Good & Evil Karmas we produce in our hidden corner. Moon- is categorized for Mana based actions influenced by our deep hidden desires and thinking process

Those always reside in mind. Those hidden desires take in the form of manipulative actions which get a spark in our day to day life as a result of our 5 senses speculation for the manifestation of hidden desires. These are those desires which keep taking birth in our mind via fraction of thoughts, either try to fulfil it or get frustrated with it.

All those future thoughts which are keep taking birth in our Sub-conscious plane are called Sub-Conscious based karmas, means those karmas which are somewhere hidden in mind and are trying hard to take a form of physical level or in the physical world for the manifestation of desires based on some action plan.

As per Karama Theory of Bhagwat Geeta, ” Mana is the main culprit as well as boon too and categorized in top level overall 5 senses for accountability in evil and Good Karmas”.

The subpart of Mana Based karma is Mercury (Your Brain who processes those thoughts into some logic’s and yielding into some planning and actions) – Responsible for thoughtful Action oriented Karma based on some logic’s, calculations and mathematical equation ignited from Vishudhi Chakra. Mana is controlling all these senses and Brain is working under the Mana mainly.if Mercury is afflicted in a chart it will give birth of evil logical approach in actions and if it is beneficially placed in any Dharma Kona (1, 5 and 9th house) or getting aspect from Sun and Jupiter, it will uplift the dharma and those actions into fruitful manner for the cause of society. Eventually, Mercury or Brain will rule over all those 5 senses and will be an indicator for Higher Intelligence of Gyaani as refer in Bhagwad Geeta, Person will follow the life of Gyan Yoga.

The Karmas which are done in Conscious and sub-Conscious plane take a form of Actions or results based on desires. The results or ‘fruits’ of actions are combinedly called Karma-Phala (fruit of Karma).

 

Astrological Interpretation of Karma and Astrology

 

In Astrological Language, Navamsa Chart or Dharm-Amsa (D9) is seen for fructification of Karmas (both Subconscious and Conscious karmas). The Dharma-amsa gives clue and intensity level of karma to check fructification of any Raaj or Raja Yoga’s.

This is the main reason why we see fructification of Marriage from D9 as Dharma connected with marriage bonding, the dharma of Marriage is legal Kids and Following our religious and social duties and to uplift it mutually which are necessary to grow for self and Kula( Family) too. Dharma gives wisdom and shows the path to move in most righteous manner.

The affliction of any planet in D9 chart indicates, in what area, where you are doing Adharma or what you are not following which is not according to dharma or by the righteous principle of the Almighty.

Kids are the fruits of Marriage and if Venus is afflicted (By Nodes/Mars/Saturn) in D9 chart for both Male and females, that means Something illegitimate happening in a relationship or in the area of Venus i.e Marriage or w.r.t Women. Either native is doing something wrong with women’s or he or she is illegally involving in illegitimate sexual activities other than marriage bonding. I have known to someone having Venus in 2nd house in D9 chart aspected by Mars and Rahu, native used to make illegitimate relationships with Women’s for the gratification of senses which in results will sure be gone destroy the properties of Venus in D1 chart.

In D1 chart Venus is lord of 5th house and placed in 12th house. I was pretty sure about, it will delay the happiness via Marriage (Happiness via Marriage are Kids (11th from 7th house – 5th house ). Here in this case native lost the 1st baby before birth and still not able to complete his Master Degree and having not so good relationship with her spouse.

So, the affliction of any planet in D9 chart will give you clue how Adharma is happening around you Which in results can give crisis in marriage, bad relationship with Women, an issue with wife and reduction of Results in the house where Venus is having lordship in D1.

In Spiritual reality, Marriage is an about fruit of our Sanchit and Prarabdh Karmas we had performed in earlier births and based on those karmas either we used to enjoy those relations or realizes or suffers on account of those relations based on actions or bad deeds of past.

If you had done good Karmas in past birth, Marriage will be most fruitful and same result can be check in the D9 chart too.In d9 chart Venus (In Male charts) and Jupiter and Mars (In Female charts) will be free from any nodal affliction.If you have done anything bad wrt to any men or women in past birth, in current birth chart 6th House and 6th Lord in D1 will mostly try to obstruct the marriage relationship maturity and any afflicted to nodes will always try to disturb the marriage in current life.

Whenever it makes any relationship or influences the 7th house, 7th Lord, UL(Uppada Lagana) or A7 (Darapada) in d1 chart and other marriage supporting houses natives either will face delays in the marriages or if somehow native falls in relation of love or close bonding, relationship will be like a path of cactus or level of suffering in that relationship will be intense or severe.

In many of the cases what I have seen that if AK is deeply afflicted by nodes or some way connected with Suffering houses or has some relation with either Venus or UL or A7 arudha, relationships and marriage will be difficult to handle and it can fall very soon or the level of suffering would be very intense and unbearable for that soul.

Only Purpose is to realize the soul lesson of pasts karmas in the same way one has given the sufferings to the others.

Karma’s role is to always realize or filtering the soul suffering from deeper growth in current life.

Some souls can fall on account of those suffering but some souls transform them into a new beginning of the spiritual path.

This can be check in the D9 chart too with the strength of Ak(Atmakarka). If Ak is deeply conjugated with Nodes/Malefic planets or it is debilitated placed in trik Bhavas from Lagana of D9, it clearly indicates level of soul suffering will be intense and one has to suffer badly in this life on account of past deeds and possibility is too that either native might fall back or rise above spiritually, as Ak is weakly placed and debilitated too.

Debilitation of Ak always is a case of the fallen soul where one may rise materially but for spiritually it could be a challenge for him to lift his soul from Tamasik Parvarti.

The choice is clearly in the hands of native what he wants to achieve from that suffering, rise from that or fall in that. This clearly suggests one has to pay back its karma in any form, either in this birth or in next birth, if somehow native could able to carry forward it to the next birth with the blessings and intervention of the Seers/Saints/Guru and divine souls.

If we see deeper, In Broader level Good Karmas are mainly categorized in Sanchit Karama, even though bad is also categorized in it too but the level of result is quite different.

The result of Sanchit karma can become out at any time in your life when dashas and slow-moving transits (Saturn, Jupiter’s and nodes) would be in support to the chart.

Maybe it can come in pre-marriage life or maybe after post marriage events.It is purely dependent on the transits of the Karmic planets (Saturn, Nodes, and Jupiter) on those houses/Lord having relation with past deeds.

So, carefully watch your karmas with open eyes and deep wisdom.

Both the Good and Bad vimsotri Dashas in Natal Chart keep telling you about your combined Sanchit (Sum total of all good and bad karmas) and Prarabdha Karmas (Suffering you have given to others) when it is combined with the Moola dasha, that shows the results of past deeds. What level of suffering we are getting in current life is clearly seen from the result of moola dasha, and why we are getting sufferings in current life is clearly seen from the combined results of moola dasha. Both the dashas works in hand on hand way. One shows reasons for sufferings and others shows in that period we might get sufferings out of our past actions or deeds.

Below mentioned Quotes of Swami Sivananda Saraswati Ji clearly speaks about the results of past actions or deed what we discussed in above astrological interpretations:

According to the definition of Yogi Swami Sivananda Saraswati,

 

” life is an infinite chain of results of actions (Karma) in the past works on the principle of “Law of Cause and Effect” same is defined in physics and actual reality too. what you do base on we have to see its consequences and effects on our surroundings. Simply “As you sow, so you reap”.

The way the results of Karma are delivered is known as “Law of Karma (Ruled by the Lord Saturn whose duty is either to punish or give and teach lessons of life).

 

“Law of Karama simply says What you will do, what you will get at any moment at any time”.

“According to Swami Sivananda Saraswati, Karma in our Sanatana dharma is considered to be a spiritually originated law that governs all life functioning. In the Law of Karma even though an individual is considered to be the sole doer and enjoy-er of his Karmas and their ‘fruits’ “.The supreme being (The Divine Power – Lord Jupiter represents the divine blessings from the god who showers blessing when we deserves as our Sanchit karmas allows) plays a major role as the dispenser of the ‘fruits’ of Karma”.

(Reference, Yogi Swami Sivananda Saraswati)

The best way to understand the law of Karma astrologically and regarding its connected fruit or result should be from ” Transit of Jupiter and Saturn transits in D1 chart ” those are categorized in Non-Fixed karma (Adridha Karmas), means which can be come out any moment when both transits are in your favour or not.

Transit of Jupiter gives opportunities and Saturn shows when that karma has to fulfil. Both the transits work in mutual relations to shows results and fruits of karmas and actions connected in past deeds.

Conclusion:

In Spiritual Reality God’s has somehow direct involvement in this process, astrology is only a tool to understand the karmic influence on us, only when the level of karma is intense to minimize. Although there is no such way to avoid karmas in any way but yes because of the Bhakti/Tapa/Nama Jaap and immense devotion toward almighty it can be neutralized or minimize to some extent but the period of karmic suffering one has to go through. In General, the natural laws of causation are sufficient to explain the effects of Karma.

Quantum mechanics in Jyotish – Understanding Multiverse Karma, How our karmic energy effects our time thread

How our karmic energy effects our time thread and planetary motions

Karma is widely considered as a continuous process, always in motion and moves with perfect order and speed. Every karma has its perfect order and bind with multiple time threads those made out of our karma either in past, present or in future actions. Whatever we do in any form either physical one or mental are simply connected with these time threads and every action and thought travel in universe also connected with these multi-verse time threads, thus shows how time is connected with every and each part of our karma which means karma is an eternal process and has perfect order and rotatory speed.

That’s what lord Shiri Krishna said in Bhagwat Geeta in Chapter 3,  Text 5,  Karma-yoga :

TEXT 5
Na hi kascit ksanam api
jatu tisthaty akarma-krt
karyate hy avasah karma
sarvah prakrti-jair gunaih
SYNONYMS
na—nor; hi—certainly; kaścit—anyone; kṣaṇam—even a moment; api—also; jātu—even; tiṣṭhati—stands; akarma-kṛt—without doing something; kāryate—is forced to do; hi—certainly; avaśaḥ—helplessly; karma—work; sarvaḥ—everything;prakṛti-jaiḥ—out of the modes of material nature; guṇaiḥ—by the qualities.
TRANSLATION
” All men are forced to act helplessly according to the impulses born of the modes of material nature; therefore no one can refrain from doing something, not even for a moment.”
(Reference – Bhagwad Geeta, Karma Yoga, chapter 3, Source – http://asitis.com/3/5.html)

” karma is a flow and no one can sit idle, everyone has to do its associated karma to survive in the karmic world, even god itself never sit idle either it is a physical or mental one. Karama always in action even when one is not willing to act in any way “.


This shows how god is itself in motional form but the rotational speed of god and our karma bind with us Only with our soul and way we think broadly that only decides how we can understand god around us and how our karma matters much in understanding actions of planetary forces.

Now, what are Time threads?

In a questionnaire dialogue between Charlie Kaufma and Brian Greene regarding understanding on the fabric of time and cosmos, famous astrophysicist Brian Greene explained in a very simplest form how we can understand time in our day to day life –

The Question was: What is Time?

Mr Greene said: “The mechanism by which you can notice the change is exactly the definition of time ” He suggested that it may be a derivative idea, an emergent property, not elemental to the first equations of physics. The equations certainly do not distinguish between past and future. In fact, all moments of time are in existence. We can imagine an expanse of space before our eyes, but not time. This is merely a limit of our representative imagination. It is just as “real,” even “material,” as this computer, or the Pacific Ocean.

Why do we experience a sequence—a passage, a flow—of time?

Mr Greene offers an evolutionary explanation. Establishment of a now (including an imprinted past in the form of memory) distinct from a future leads to predicting and anticipating, planning and striving, brain-initiated functions that encourage acquisition of energy until the replication of DNA, and thus survival in nature. Mr Greene insists that there is no mathematical distinction between present and future. There is no unique NOW. (“And is that, is that what they’re thinking these days?” said Mr Kaufman, mind blown, to a laugh).

Words ultimately fail here– although Mr Kaufman’s, writer that he is, was often perfectly selected. “Now is a function of a brain. If there is no brain, I think there is no now. It just is, whatever that means.” (“Do you guys . . . smoke a lot of pot?” the novelist and Kaufman-collaborator Susan Orlean humorously asked during the question period). Let it be known, too, that quantum physics complicates this picture.

 
 
What is time in Vedic Cosmology ?

The Hindu concept of time is cyclical (and eternal and degenerative). Time is preciously based on two schemes, one is used for creation and destruction of planetary structures for human beings and it is endless, eternal and cyclic in nature and another part of the time is purely mathematical also cyclic in nature and preciously exist in both material and non-material form.

That shows time is circular and cyclic in nature and keep moving around us. Question is how we can relate it and understand it in our day to day life actions.

The answer is simple – Our Karma decides how we move in time threads.

The karma we do decides how it has perfect speed and harmony with nature itself. If we look out at scientific definition of Time is what -It is also simply a cyclic or circular motion and follows a certain amount of speed based on our karmic energies based on spiritual aspects.

If we compare it with planet’s – they are also in motion, cyclic and circular in nature too and thus shows they too have some karma or actions or certain amount of energies associated with them and follows certain order and speed since many eras from the beginning of creation  with  many variations in speed and motion shows root of everything, including time is – The speed and Motion of our karma.

Something’s keep flowing and keep moving everything in perfect order is simply our karma and energies associated with those karmas.

Take an Expression as T – Time, K – Karama and P – Planets and write it down as a direct proportion relation of karmic motions acting as key and shows a formula for decoding time and karmic link.

i.e  Time = Karama x Motion + Cyclic loop, Planets also works on same phenomena = Speed x Motion + Cyclic Loop.

Moving in certain order following a system.

That shows  Both time and Karma is Interrelated to each other in some way, what we do directly effects our time threads and same effects thus are seen via planetary movements too.

 

This means that everything is karmic in nature from individual actions to natural disasters at a particular location’s. Our karmic energies thus influence actions pertaining to natural forces either it is individual or its a group actions.

If you want to understand how planets are effecting us this is the answer for them those who are always in a state of dilemma how planets affect our karma and how our karma are interrelated with planetary action in a vice versa relationship.

This proves Jyotish Planetary science is simply a karmic science based on our karmic actions and energies associated with them.

The motion of planets is simply relative to our motion and speed of karma.How well we do our karma will decide our destinies and planets effects will reflect it in the same and can be astrologically analysed.Same way the time is moving karmas are also moving and relative with our planetary speed and motions.

If you can move your karma fast maybe you can cross time dilatation and able to travel in an interstellar manner. Simply, Time, karmas and planetary motions are moving in perfect harmony with each other if you stop, time will be stop for you but it will keep running eternally in background as always endless in a circular loop.
