Happy Diwali ! Don't buy crackers !!

When I was 15 years old, I stopped buying crackers for Diwali. This happened 40 years ago, in 1978. I was just 15 then, but had the realization that celebrating Diwali with crackers is nothing but adding to environmental pollution. I also observed that many people suffered regularly from breath related problems just around Diwali time. So, I used to reject the offer of my parents asking me to buy crackers. Since then, I have been constantly trying to enhance the awareness among all around me not to buy crackers and increase the air pollution. Very few understood me, others teased me and some others considered me to be a miser. Nevertheless, I firmly remained with my understanding. 

I do celebrate Diwali, but in a different way. I just light lamps in my house and sit in silent meditation as long as I could. This is how I celebrate my Diwali. I have been doing this for the past 40 years.

Recently, Supreme Court has ruled prohibiting the manufacture of crackers that emit heavy smoke, terrible sound and chemicals into the air. It also laid down that bursting of crackers should be resorted to from 8 PM to 10 PM. Immediately the Crackers Manufacturing Association of Sivakasi in Tamilnadu has rejected this ruling as untenable. I had a belly laugh after reading this news.

Who cares for law in this country? The honorable judges of Supreme Court may be right in thinking that their ruling will be automatically followed by everybody in the country. Sadly, it is not the fact. In India, everybody has his own set of rules. Nobody cares the courts and no institution can enforce the ruling of the court on people who are unwilling to follow them, all the while heading towards destruction. Not even he who is suffering from Ashtma and gasping for a breath of fresh air will stop celebrating Diwali with crackers. He is blissfully unaware of the fact that his Ashtma has its roots in the air pollution caused by bursting of crackers. Neither will he understand on his own, nor will he listen to sane advice. People of India are such !

The pollution generated by our country by bursting of crackers during Diwali time is badly affecting the environment of other countries too. This has been confirmed by satellites. The chemical smoke released into air, mixed with dust, plays havoc with the health of citizens by creating many respiratory problems. Environmentalists have been rising a hue and cry over this issue sing long, but who cares in this country? It is certain that we are heading towards some kind of mass destruction.

In my childhood, I felt somewhat skeptical after reading the Kala Jnanam (Predictions) of Saint Veera Brahmendra Swamy. He gave a gory picture of mass destruction that will happen in India by disease and war. Seeing the advancements in science and technology, I could not believe that his predictions will ever come true. However, after growing up a little and looking around the people of our society, I was convinced with the predictions of the saint. I understood that even intellectuals with Ph.Ds were grossly ignorant on many issues other than their fields of research. They are not open in their thinking. When this is the condition of the so-called intellectuals, what to speak of common men of our society who are no better than animals? Ignorance and adamant nature - these two demons are killing our society. When I observed their presence everywhere around me, I thought the saint was right in picturing Apocalypse-like events in his Predictions. He was true, we are certainly heading towards mass destruction !

There is a family in our vicinity. Their children reside in USA but visit India every year during Diwali. To exhibit the power of Dollar, they burst heavy crackers laying them on the road across two full lanes. These crackers keep on bursting for 10 to 15 minutes at a stretch with heavy sounds. Idiotic fools gather in large numbers to see this spectacle. I feel ashamed of myself to be a part of this idiotic society. But what can we do? The entire Indian society is such. For people like me who tend to think a little, the only choice available now is to leave this country to settle in a country which has a better society.

All said and done, we need to do something to better our society. So I am requesting all the members of Panchawati group to desist from buying crackers to celebrate Diwali this year. I also request my disciples who are in USA not to burst crackers during Diwali festival. Please keep that country clean, atleast. 

Please celebrate Diwali as I do. Light the lamps of awareness and meditation in you. Live totally fulfilled lives. Don't just live like animals.

Those who say they are following me should follow my way of life. Let us put forth a small effort to lessen the air pollution that is going to devour India during Diwali time. Are you aware that every year thousands of people including small children were dying with breathing problems in India, just after Diwali time? And the crackers you buy and burst are the culprits ! Don't become killers ! Become human beings !! Stop crackers during Diwali !!

I think this is a small gift that we can give to the idiotic society that we are living in !!

Jupiter transit into Scorpio - Results

This change of signs will create many corresponding changes in the lives of all human beings. If you have a keen eye, you must be witnessing many changes in your life since a month or so.

'Where is my son?' - Prasna (horary) Astrology.

On 9-8-2018, I was nominated as an official observer for the online examination in a nearby private college. This incident happened on that day.

It was 4 PM and the third session of the examination just commenced. All the candidates were busy writing the examination. It was tea time, so a woman staff of the college served me a cup of tea.

'Do you work for Railways?' she inquired, placing the tea cup on my table.

I said - 'Yes'.

'Are you a police officer? She asked again.

'No' I replied.

'Then why are police with you?' She persisted.

'They are on escort duty' - I said.

'My son has been missing for last two years. Could your police know anything?' she asked naively.

'They might not know. You could have complained to civil police' - I told her as coolly as possible.

'They might have seen him while he boarded a train to run away from home' - She said.

I could not decide whether she was really innocent or not. There are many people who act over smart and play with others. So I became alert and questioned her - 'What was his age when he ran away from home?'

'Nineteen' - she replied.

I looked at her again. and decided to cast a Prasna chart in my mind to answer her question. As I already knew the planetary positions of the day, I just observed the Lagna to be Sagittarius.

Mars as 5th Lord is in Ascendant. He is 12th Lord too. Moon who is in 7th showing distant places is looking at Ascendant. So the question is about her missing son. Saturn is aspecting Moon. So her question is genuine. She was dark in color and resembling Saturn.

2nd Lord Saturn showing family is retro, going into 12th house. Mercury is with Moon in 7th house aspecting Ascendant. 7th is the natural 3rd house indicating quarrels. So there was certain trouble in their family.

I looked at the 10th house of the chart where Venus is stationed. Moreover, the Hora lord is Venus again. There is trinal aspect between debilitated Venus and exalted Mars who is 5th Lord. So it must be an unwanted love affair which drove the boy away from home.

'Was it a love affair?' I asked her.

She almost broke down.

'Yes.' She said meekly.

'The girl is your neighbour. She is good now. But your son escaped from home.' I said looking at Mars who is retro.

'Right ! We know them. She is happy with another boy now. But I lost my son.' She said almost in a weeping tone.

I had a doubt about her husband because she is not mentioning him at all. I looked at the seventh house.

7th Lord Mercury is fully combust in 8th house. It shows death of her husband or some severe handicap. 8th Lord Moon who is a watery planet owing a watery sign is in 7th house showing death of her husband by drowning.

'Your husband?' I asked her.

'Just before this incident could happen, he committed suicide by drowning in a quarry pit full of water.'

I doubted her statement because, Lagna Lord is in 11th house showing her friends and aspecting Moon in 7th. Saturn who is lord of family is also looking at him. The day was very near to New Moon. There was Rahu in Moon's house showing lying on her part. So her husband died not by committing suicide but he was killed by persons known to her.

'Did he commit suicide? or was killed by somebody? - I asked her.

She hesitated for a moment.

'I don't know. There were rumors that his friends killed him in a drunken brawl ' She said with a low tone.

Her body language confirmed my doubt.

Ignoring my thoughts I observed retro Mars who was landing in the Ascendant. I told her finally- 'Your son is safe now. He is at some nearby place in the South direction. He will come back on his own in a few days. Don't worry' 

She thanked me and went away.

'Who has stolen my mobile phone?' - Prasna Astrology.

Suddenly, mobile phone has become the most important thing in everybody's life now. Compared to it, all the other things in life have taken a back seat. This is so because, almost all things are being managed through the mobile phone now, be it banking, driving, shopping, messaging or chatting with friends.

On 13-8-2018 at 11-45 AM someone posed me a question.

'I lost my mobile a few days back and I suspect two persons. Can you tell me who, between the two, is the thief?'

'What will you do after knowing it? I asked him.

'I can't do anything now. Your reading will just clear my doubt. Thats all' - he replied.

'If there is nothing you could do, then it is a waste of time for me to look into the chart' - I retorted.

'Please. Your reading will certainly make me more peaceful. At least I will know what had happened and who stole it.' said the inquirer.

The day was Monday and the Hora was of Venus. Venus is in debilitation now. I observed the Prasna Dasa to be Venus-Saturn-Venus. So the influence of Venus is clearly evident. Venus rules over women and costly things like mobile phones.

The chart was cast. At the first sight, I told him - 'One of your suspects is a Brahmin by caste'.

'How could you say that? - he asked.

'Why do you want to know my logic? Just tell me yes or no.' I asked him.

He said 'yes'.

'You are suspecting him to have come to your house and stolen the phone.' - I said.

'Yes again' he agreed.

'Your second suspect is your maid servant' I said.

He was surprised.

'Yes again' - he said.

'The servant was the thief not the Brahmin boy.' - I told him.

'How did you say that?' he questioned.

'The science of Astrology has its own logic. Unless you are into it, I am afraid you may not understand even if I explain.' - I replied.

'I will try to understand if you care to explain' - he said.

'Look at the chart. Lagna is Libra. Thief is ruled by 6th Lord who is Jupiter. He is a Brahmin according to Indian Astrology. He is in the Ascendant. It means he comes to your house to steal something. But this is not true because the Arudha Lagna is Leo. Sixth lord is Saturn who rules over servants. He is retrograde and lands into fourth house representing your house. So, again, the thief comes to your house to steal. Saturn in Scorpio is more uncomfortable than Jupiter in Libra. Moreover, mobile phone is indicated by third house which rules over communication. From Libra, Jupiter is no doubt lord of third house. But from Leo, third lord Venus is debilitated in second house showing a valuable article connected to communication. He is aspected by Saturn. It shows your maid servant had an eye on your mobile phone. Additionally, Moon who shows mind is very much in Leo. So, Leo is more powerful than Libra. The running dasa lords are also Venus and Saturn. The Hora lord is Venus. So, even though you suspect the Brahmin boy as the thief, it is the servant who did it.' - I told him.

'Can you tell me where are they now?' - He asked again.

'The Brahmin boy is not near your house now. He left to a distant place' I told him, looking at Jupiter in Aries which is the debilitation sign of Saturn in Navamsa chart.

'Correct. They vacated their house and shifted to a nearby village' he agreed.

'Your maid servant is not working for you now.' I told him looking at the retrogression of Saturn.

'True. After the incident, she stopped working for me'  He replied.

'Now that you know the truth, what is your plan? I questioned.

'Nothing in particular. I bought a new mobile immediately. These days we can live without anything but not without a mobile' he said sadly.

'You learnt a good lesson. Be careful hereafter' I told him.

He thanked me and left.
