One man army - Dr Subramanya Swamy

I hate politics and political leaders right from my childhood, rather unconsciously. There are many reasons behind my feeling. The leaders are notorious for their lack of integrity and non-adherence to dharma in their personal as well as official lives. Truthfulness, moral values, upright behavior are alien words to them. It is my strong feeling that political leaders never tread the path of morality,truthfulness and selflessness. Almost all the leaders I had observed were obsessed with caste, corruption and selfishness. So I used to think that there is no hope for our country any more in the near future. I used to ponder, somewhat pessimistically, that it might not be possible to find sincere and upright political leaders anymore. However, I found my views to be unfounded, after knowing about a tireless fighter who is waging his war against corruption and political evils besieging our country. He is none other than Dr Subramanya Swamy, a political leader with a difference.

He is the national president of Janata Party founded in 1977 by Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan. He is representing Madurai constituency now. Let us examine his astro chart.He was born  at 4.30 on 16-9-1939 at Chennai. Now he is 72 years old and still fighting against the evils faced by our country. It is our country's fortune that such upright and truth loving leaders do exist in the political arena even today.

Budhaditya Yoga in his lagna gave him good education, deep knowledge in his subject, world wide fame and academic recognition. He got his Ph D in Economics from Harvard University and worked there as professor for sometime. Later he worked as professor in IIT Delhi. All his academic excellence is due to the Budhaditya yoga (Sun-Mercury conjunction) happening in his lagna.

Debilitated Venus as 10th lord in 2nd house denied him power and authority except for short spells of time. However, the cancellation of debility of Venus by Mercury's placement in Lagna had helped him to become the Minister of Law and Commerce between 1990-91. At that time he ran Saturn/Rahu and Jupiter dasas. Saturn's debility is cancelled due to exaltation of Mars in 4th Kendra from Moon. Rahu is signifying Venus by his placement in Tula. So in Saturn/Rahu dasa he became a Central Minister.

In Dasamsa chart, Sun the 11th lord is in 8th house, thus denying power and authority despite his scholarship. Mars in Lagna and 6th lord in 6th house with debilitated Mercury indicates constant quarrels with powerful enemies in authority.

Shashtihayini dasa applies in his chart owing to Sun's location in lagna. According to this system, Rahu dasa which commenced in 1958 took him abroad at once. It is Rahu that gave him Ph D from Harvard University in 1964-65. Afterwards, he came to India to join IIT Delhi as Economics professor when he was running Jupiter Dasa. Jupiter in 8th house from Lagna and 6th house from Moon, gave him constant opposition from authorities as he took active interest in student affairs. Jupiter/Venus in 1971 saw him walking out from IIT due to his differences with Indira Gandhi. It can be seen that Venus is debilitated in his chart in 12th house from Moon.

His relation with Jansangh and Jayaprakash Narayan led him into politics.Sun dasa from 1974-84, exalted Mars dasa upto 1994 and Moon dasa upto 2000 gave him Rajayoga and made him Member of Parliament for 5 terms consecutively. However during 1976 he ran Sun/Mars dasa which caused enmity with government due to Mars sitting in 6th house.

He was instrumental in improving our country's relations with China and Israel. The most sought after 'Kailash & Manasa Sarovar' Yatra has become a reality for Indians owing to his closeness with Deng Xiao Ping. Indians should be indebted to Dr Subramanya Swamy for this achievement which is fulfilling the religious sentiment of millions of Indians. As a member of planning commission in 1991, he envisaged the 'New Economic Policy' which is the driving force behind the flourishing Indian Economy now.

Debilitated and retro Saturn, Exalted Mars, their exchange of signs and mutual aspect between them gave rise to a peculiar yoga in his chart. By the effect of this yoga, he always  stands for the common man and fights  for justice.He never cares the result but continues to fight till his goal is reached.This is a peculiar trait of his Astro chart. Powerful Mars in 6th house gives him powerful enemies always. However, owing to presence of equally powerful Sun in Lagna, he too never bows before his enemies, but offers a tough fight taking the help of law. He could have enjoyed high positions quite easily, if only he sacrificed his self respect and his concern for moral values. But due to the strength of his lagna lord Sun, he would never stoop low to gain selfish ends.

Saturn and Ketu in 9th house show that he has a deep spiritual nature. However owing to debilitation of Saturn and his enmity with lagna lord Sun, he might not achieve spiritual liberation in this life. However, this combination gave him blessings of a great spiritual  master Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati, Paramacharya of Kanchi Mutt.

In his next birth, he will be born as a yogi and reach spiritual fulfillment. Then, he will  be worshipped by the people owing to his lifelong efforts to serve the humanity in this life. He led a yogic way of life in his last birth. But due to left over karma that bound him to the society, he is now leading a political life. But his spiritual samskaras will haunt him in his next life and make him embrace the religious path. He has blessings of Guru abundantly. His Vimsamsa (D-20) lagna is Mesha having 9th lord Jupiter and Saturn sitting in 5th house shows his spiritual capabilities. However due to retrogression of  Jupiter in his chart, spiritual fulfillment evades him in this life. 

1n 1969 during Jupiter/Moon dasa he saw the photo of Paramacharya of Kanchi in the hostel room of Harward University. He forgot the photo but could meet the Acharya in 1977. Since then, till the mahasamadhi of Paramacharya in 1994, there was frequent interaction between them .Paramacharya advised him how to mix politics with high ideals.

Jaimini Maharshi's sutra (1-2-48) fits into this chart very well. It says 'समे शुभ दृग्योगाद्धर्म  नित्यः सत्यवादी गुरुभक्तश्च', meaning thereby, 'One who is having aspect of good planets to the 9th from Karakamsha would be righteous in nature, always speaks the truth and devoted to his Guru.' In this chart, Atmakaraka is Sun, Karakamsha is Dhanus and 9th house from thence is having Budhaditya Yoga. So it is clear that Dr Subramanya Swamy is endowed with all the above qualities narrated by Jaimini Maharshi.

Presently he is running Saturn Maha dasa from January 2012. During this dasa he will become more and more spiritual due to the presence of Saturn and Ketu in his 9th house. Considered from the Moon, this combination can increase the number of his enemies. Presence of debilitated Venus in 12th house can be a secret threat from womenfolk, especially in the light of '7.5 years Shani' middle period. So he has to be extra careful during this period.

I have changed my long held opinion now. Now I believe that there is righteousness even in politics. But what can a drop of milk do in a pot of poison? More and more Dr.Subramanya swamys is the need of the day to revive values in politics. Going by the current trends, can we ever expect such a welcome change in our society?
