Rohini Sakata Bhedanam-5(A grand rule of Natural Justice)

From the last four posts,it could be easily understood that whenever Saturn in his celestial sojourn either touched or aspected Star Rohini,there were world disasters.

The reasons are not far to seek.

According to our scriptures,Rohini is ruled by Prajapathi or the Creator Brahma Deva.The created beings are indicated by this star.So it is quite natural and logical that whenever it was tortured by Saturn,living creatures do suffer.We know that Saturn is the karaka for Karma.

Star Rohini enjoys a special status among the 27 constellations because Moon loves her more than his other 26 wives(the star clusters).It is not coincidental to note that Moon is exalted in Taurus where star Rohini dwells.

Among the nine planets,Saturn,Mars and Rahu are the ones who are entrusted with the task of punishing the guilty.They are the dispensers of Natural Justice.

There is a logic in the creation.The Planets also follow a kind of logic in their movement.Human life too follows an unseen logic.

The logic of creation was called 'Rtam' by the Indian seers.Life's logic was called 'Karma' and logic of the planets was called 'Dasha'.Creation follows a certain pattern.All the planets and stars do follow a rhythm in their movement failing which they create destruction.Similary,human life when lived according to certain rules and norms of morality brings happiness.If the rules of life are violated,destruction results.Ancient Indian seers tried to understand these rhythms.

In this search were born our ancient scriptures.

Astrology,Vedanta,Yoga,Tantra-all these are the sciences that tried to understand human life in the background of Universal principles.By understanding these branches of knowledge properly,human life is enriched with wisdom.A life lived in wisdom bestows ultimate fulfillment.

All these Vidyas are not mere hobbies undertaken to spend time in a carefree manner.These are the compasses that guide the course of life.By following these branches of knowledge human life takes a smooth sail in the troubled waters of uncertainty.

Now let us understand the effects of Saturn in tune with his passage in different Rasis of the Zodiac.
  • During Rohini Sakata,Saturn affects Rohini either by position or aspect.As Taurus,where Rohini reigns,is a sign that represents element Earth,major Earthquakes are happening during Rohini Sakata periods.
  • As Leo is a Fiery sign,Transit of Saturn in Leo always produced fire accidents and also Marine accidents,because Fire is put off by Water.
  • As Scorpio is a watery sign,Transit of Saturn in it provoked accidents related to liquids i.e Chemical accidents,Marine accidents,Cyclones and Floods.
  • As Pisces too is a watery sign,during Saturn's transit,it produced accidents related to water,petrol and other liquids.
The Pancha Maha Bhutas (Five great elements) are the sources of man's life.At the time of death,these are the very agents that kill him too.So during Rohini Sakata,accidents related to Earth, Water, Fire and Air are happening everywhere.Sky or space supports the other four invariably.

The disasters seem to have a mind of their own.It is not uncommon to see that a small baby is saved in a gory accident that kills hundreds.It appears that some force is guiding these disasters to happen at particular times and places.

Our scriptures describe three kinds of Pralayas.The Nitya or regular,the Naimittika or those due to a special cause and the Maha Pralaya or the Final destruction.

The Mahapralaya comes only in the end of Kalpa(Brahma Deva's day)

Nitya Pralaya(daily destruction) happens everywhere everyday.People keep dying everyday in many a strange manner.

Due to special disasters at certain times people die in large numbers.This is called Nimittika Pralaya.In my research I found the Rohini Sakata to be the trigger of Naimittika Pralaya around the globe.

Planets,while travelling in the Zodiac path,do grant results in human life according to the deeds of human beings.Good and bad things happen in our lives according to our karma.It is good to understand this universal principle and mould our lives accordingly,to gain good results.On the other hand,those who never make an attempt to understand the universal principle of Karma,spoil their lives with unrighteous deeds that produce disastrous results.

There is a proverbial wise warning that says-Act in haste and repent at leisure.Bad Karma when being done gives great pleasure and encourages you to do more and more.At that time,whatever you plan would materialize leaving you no time to pause and think.One never knows how much Karma one is accumulating in the process.The real pain starts only when the karma comes to fruition and starts showing up its results.

During difficult times,everyone laments and prays to God saying that he is innocent and never harmed anyone knowingly.

Everyone thinks in times of distress-'Why this suffering to me?What did I do to deserve this punishment?'

If you are really innocent,no harm would befall you.Your suffering shows that you wronged in the past and now reaping its result.You might have forgotten your past deeds,or you might be not so intelligent as to recognize that what you did was a sin.But Nature neither forgets nor acts in injustice.Its judgement and timing are always right.

The 'Judgement' is dispensed through Saturn.He is not partial in nature and never favours one to the exclusion of the other.None can escape from the wrath of Saturn.

Entire human life is under the control of Saturn.The famous Sade Sathi period,the Fourth transit and the Eighth transit of Saturn put together controls 12.5 years of human life.From the Lagna and Sun Lagna if we add another 25 years it becomes 37.5 and already Transit Saturn would have covered 7.5 years in its 30 years cycle around the Zodiac.If we add the Rohini Sakata period of another 8 years to this,it clearly shows that Saturn has an unmistakable control over human life.

All said and done,what is the essence of life? Doing Karma and suffering its results;Nothing else.

Coming to the present,my research on Rohini Sakata yielded a grand rule which appears to work everytime unfailingly.

Whenever Saturn,either touches or looks at star Rohini which is at the same time is touched or aspected by either Mars or Rahu,it creates a compounding destructive effect on Earth.Thousands suffer and die at those times on Earth.

This is an unmistakable astro principle that has come out of my research.

Let me cite a few examples from the past.
  • In 2002 Saturn and Rahu were together in Taurus.
  • In 1972 Saturn was in Taurus and Rahu aspected him from Capricorn.
  • In 1942 when worldwide destruction took place,Saturn and Mars were together in Taurus.
  • In December 1912 Mars was in Scorpio and aspected Saturn who was in Taurus.
  • In July 1883 Saturn and Mars were together in Taurus.
  • In 1854 Saturn and Rahu were together in Taurus.From September to November,Mars aspected them from Libra and Scorpio.
  • In August 1824 Mars aspected Saturn in Taurus from August to October.In February 1825 Mars was in Kumbha and looked at Saturn in Taurus with his 4th aspect.

So a grand astro rules emerges out from this observation,thus:--

Whenever Saturn,Mars or Rahu,one or more,either by position or aspect affect Taurus in a combined manner,at that time,world disasters do certainly happen resulting in large scale loss of human life or property or both.

The clue for this astro principle lies in the incident called Rohini Sakata from the Ramayana and the Mahabharatha.

All the incidents enumerated in my past four posts stand as testimonials to this grand astro rule.These disasters are not run of the mill incidents.They appear once in every 30 years invariably.In almost 28 time slots from the past 300 years this rule proved to be true again and again.

Now,based on this rule,let me see which months are deadly in the coming Rohini Sakata during 2015-16.
  • During 3-11-2014 Saturn would be stepping into Scorpio.Bad times would invariably start from that date for the Earth.
  • In February 2015 Mars travels in Kumbha and looks at Taurus with his fourth aspect.
  • In April 2015 Mars travels in Aries and looks at Saturn with his 8th aspect.
  • In May/June 2015 Mars transits over Taurus and looks at Saturn with his seventh aspect.
  • In October 2015 Mars transits over Leo and aspects Saturn with his fourth aspect.
  • In November 2015 Mara and Rahu meet in Virgo.
  • March-Septmber 2016 is going to be the worst disastrous period for the globe.Mars who transits a sign in 1.5 months,would be staying for about Six long months in Scorpio along with Saturn.Together they look at Taurus with their seventh aspect.Added to this,Rahu too looks at Taurus from Virgo creating a most dreadful compounding effect.So,the world is going to witness many large scale disasters during that period.
  • In January 2017 Mars travels in Kumbha and looks at Taurus with his fourth aspect.
  • In January 2017 Saturn leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius thus ending a bad phase of Karma cleansing of the world.
By and large,the period from November 2014 to January 2017 would be the worst disastrous period to the world.In that period again,the above mentioned months are going to be the most ominous ones.

Rohini Sakata Bhedanam-4(Saturn's third aspect)

According to Indian Astrology,Saturn has a special 3rd aspect i.e he looks forward at third house from the sign he is located in.

So,to look at Star Rohini with 3rd aspect,Saturn has to be stationed in Pisces 17th degree.

Let us verify the times when he was on 17th degree Pisces and what happened then.

1) Saturn was in Pisces in 1997-98.
  • Exactly in 1997-98 the world faced ElNino Winter.Many disases like Malaria,Dengue,MVE(Murray Valley Encephalitis), Rift Valley Fever,Kawasaki Disease etc.rose their ugly heads and tortured millions around the world.There was severe draught in India and Australia but plenty of rains in other countries.Global atmosphere was badly affected by this El Nino phenomenon.

The years 1997-98 was one of the worst disastrous periods of world history.

2) Saturn travelled in Pisces in 1967-68.
  • In Belgium there occured L'Innovation department store fire which killed 323 people.
  • In California 1967 MGM Vault fire,many film reels were destroyed.
  • In the 1967 Tasmanian Fires about 62 perished and another 1000 got burn injuries.More than 7000 became homeless.

  • There was 1937 Orizaba Earthquake in Mexico.
  • Ohio River flood was one of the largest floods which destroyed about 500 million dollars and 1 million people became homeless.
3) Again,Saturn travelled in Pisces in 1908-09.
  • In Collinwood School fire USA,about 175 were killed.
  • Rhoads Opera House fire,Pennsylvania was a worst case of fire accident in which a small kirosene lamp caused the burning down of a whole Opera house.In the resultant stampede,about 170 people died.This incident resembles those from 'Final Destination' movies.
  • 1908 Messina Earthquake of South Italy was one of the worst Earthquakes in the world.It killed about 1,23,000.
  • USA witnessed the worst kind of Tornado outbreaks during this period.1908 Dixie tornado outbreak created 29 Tornados in 13 states injuring and destroying the homes of many.
  • The biggest coal mine disaster occured in Mexico at that time.1908 Mina Rosita Vieja disaster killed about 200 people.

  • The 1909 Tornado outbreak was one of the worst of its kind.There were 37 Tornados that hit Mississipi and Tennesse areas.
  • 18 ships sank in that year worldwide.
4) Again,Saturn travelled in Pisces in 1878-79.
  • The Wallingford Tornado that hit Connecticut,USA destroyed a whole town.This was the biggest Tornados that hit that state till now.
  • The great flood of Miskolc,Hungery destroyed a whole city.This was the biggest flood of that country in terms of loss of life and property.
  • The Gale of 1878 created havoc in 15 states from Cuba to New England.
  • India witnessed a worst kind of famine in that year.The great famine of 1876-78 was unprecedented of its kind.It hit about 7 lakhs square Km area in Madras,Mysore,Hyderabad and Bombay for two years.About 6 million people died of hunger.
    5) Saturn travelled in Pisces in 1848-50.
    • The Great gale of 1848 destroyed the whole Tampa Bay area.
    • The 1848 Marlborough Earthquake wrought destruction in New Jealand.
    • The 1849 Sauve's Crevasse floods drowned New Orleans.Such a worst kind of flood was never ever seen again.
    6) 1820-21 saw Saturn in Pisces again.
    • In England there was Holmfirth Floods.
    • The 1821 Norfolk and Long island hurricane appeared in USA.
    • In the 1821 New England Tornado Outbreak,USA was hit by 5 Tornados.
    So,each time Saturn touched Pisces,the world invariably witnessed a series of disasters.

    All the above disasters could be classified as under:--
    • Fire accidents.
    • Cyclones and Floods.
    • Travel accidents.
    • Earthquakes
    • Draughts and famines.
    • Accidents of Radio active materials and Natural gases.
    • Assassinations of famous men.

    So,Rohini Sakata has been proved to be a fact again with respect to Saturn's third aspect also.Based on these observations,I will try to draw out my conclusion in the next post.

    Rohini Sakata Bhedanam-3(Saturn's seventh aspect)

    Saturn,like all other planets,has the seventh aspect,which in fact, is the most powerful aspect he has.So when he looks at Star Rohini with his seventh aspect,grave incidents do happen on Earth.Let us look at them.

    To be able to look at Rohini star with his seventh aspect he has to travel in Scorpio from 3rd to 20th degree.Let me cite the instances when Saturn traversed this sensitive point of the Zodiac in the past.

    One of the most alarming things is that in the coming few months Saturn is going to step into Scorpio to look at Star Rohini from there.So,it is not improper to think that,in another one or two years,world disasters are sure to happen again.

    Let me cite a few examples.

    1) Saturn travelled over this sensitive point from November 1985 to January 1987 and looked at Rohini.
    • On 26-4-1986 we had the Chernobyl Nuclear disaster which is considered to be the worst of its kind in the recent past and which resulted in the spill over of Nuclear dust over Russia and Europe.
    • 'Pripyat' a city in the vicinity of the reactor was abandoned as a result of this disaster.
    • People around that area were affected with grave diseases like Thyroid Cancer etc.
    • Now,a very peculiar feature of those years is burning of a few hotels in some countries.
    • 'Dupont Plaza Hotel arson' occured in Puerto Rica.This was one of the biggest hotel fires in that country.
    • 'Hotel Caledonian fire' occured in Norway.
    • Switzerland witnessed an environmental chemical disaster called 'Sandoz chemical spill'.
    • There were any number of Hurricanes,Typhoons,Earthquakes and Cyclones in 1986.
    • China witnessed '1987 Daxing'anling wildfire' which burned to ashes about 25 Lakh acres of forest.This fire was burning for a month continuously.
    • There happened an incident called 'King's cross fire' in London underground station.
    • India saw 'Punjab Killings' in 1987.Hindus travelling in two buses were killed mercilessly by terrorists belonging to Khalistan Commando Force.
    • Brazil witnessed a radio active disaster incident called 'Goiania accident'
    • New Jersey and New York witnessed a peculiar thing called 'The Syringe tide'.Atlantic beaches were shut down for a few days because they were inundated with used syringes,medical waste and other garbage.
    • Philippines was attacked by three successive Typhoons.
    • No need to mention about Cyclones and Earthquakes etc.Any number of such things happened in USA.
    2) Saturn traversed in Scorpio and looked at Rohini again from 1956-1957.
    • There happened a big fire accident in Norway.It is called the 'Dalsenget fire'.It burned down a whole tram depot and all the trams stationed over there.
    • USA witnessed one of its biggest fire accidents called Texas McKee refinery fire wherein about half a million gallons of Pentane and Hexane gases were burnt.
    • Japan saw Minamata disease,which comes through Mercury poisoning.Waste water from nearby chemical factories spilled over and polluted the Sea resulting in this worst kind of disease that haunted Japan for almost 36 years.
    • The Atlantic and the Pacific oceans witnessed 9 Hurricanes and Typhoons.
    • There were Earthquakes in Anjar(Gujarath,India),South Lebanon,Nicaragua and Burma.Among them,the Saigong Earthquake of Burma was the largest in its destructive intensity.
    • There was 'Murray river flood' in Australia which inundated many cities in three states.
    • Perhaps one of the worst disasters that attacked Earth at that times was the 1956 Tornado outbreak in USA.Almost 47 Tornados appeared in USA during these years and wrought destruction.
    • 1956 Alabama tornado is another disaster that hit the USA.
    • The year 1957 could be called the Year of Tornados'.In that year USA was devastated by 203 Tornados.
    • Spain witnessed 1957 Valencia flood.
    3) Again,Saturn travelled in Scorpio and looked at Rohini between 1926 and 1927.
    • The year 1926 could be termed as 'The year of Earthquakes'.There were about 80 Earthquakes all around the world in that year.Mars stayed for an abnormally longer period in Aries at that time.
    • USA saw 1926 Louisiana hurricane which devastated its Gulf west coast.
    • One of the biggest floods USA had ever seen in its history is The great Mississipi flood of 1927 which inundated about 27,000 square miles area with 30 feet water.
    • India witnessed 1927 Nagpur riots.
    4) Again Saturn travelled in Scorpio in 1897 -1898 and looked at star Rohini.
    • The great Assam Earthquake of 1897 is the biggest Earthquake in the history of Indian Sub continent.It shook the area of about 6.5 lakh square Km from Burma to Delhi.
    • North Dakota witnessed Red river flood.
    • There was Yellow river flood in China.
    • 1898 Fort Smith Arkansas Tornado levelled many houses in the USA.
    • Portland gale destroyed New England area and sank a ship named SS Portland. 
    5) Again,Saturn travelled in Scorpio in 1868 -1869 and looked at Rohini.
    • 1868 Arica Earthquake is one of the biggest Earthquakes Peru had ever witnessed.It created Tsunami from Hawaii,Japan and New Jealand.
    • 1868 Equador Earthquakes had killed about 70,000.
    • 1868 Hawaii Earthquake is the biggest Earthquake that happened in the history of Hawaii islands.We can imagine its devastation, if we remember that the islands are still sufferings from those effects,even today.
    • 1868 Hayward Earthquake (The Great San Francisco Earthquake) destroyed Hayward town.
    • Abergele rail disaster,one of the worst disasters of Britain occured exactly in that year.
    • The great fire of whitstable 1869 occured in Britain.
    • New Jealand witnessed Christchurch Earthquake.
    • No need to mention the number of marine and transport disasters that occured in 1868-69.
    • Ahmadabad,India witnessed an Earthquake in 1868
    • The great Rajputana famine of 1869 was the worst famine of its kind which rose in India and tortured about 50 millions.
    6) Saturn again sojourned through Scorpio in 1838 -1839 and looked at Star Rohini.
    • Romania saw Vrancea Earthquake.
    • Two warships sank in the seas.
    • Agra famine of 1837-38 was one of the worst famines that occured in India which killed about 8 lakhs people with hunger and fatigue.
    • The year 1839 saw a worst kind of Cyclone at Coringa,in the East Coast of India.It killed about 3 lakhs people.
    Enough is enough.I dont feel like going back into history anymore.

    Everytime Saturn looked at Rohini from Scorpio,he wrought as much of destruction as he did when he travelled in Taurus.

    On scrutiny, we can classify the above disasters into the following groups.
    • Disasters involving Radio active material,Chemicals,petroleum and gas.
    • Major Earthquakes.
    • Cyclones occupy the next place.USA was the worst hit country.
    • Next place is occupied by famines.At that time,India was under British rule and virtually there was no governance and no planning related to crops and food.So famines struck.
    The worst conclusion is -- Saturn is going to travel in Scorpio again in 2015-16.From the above narration,it can be 'safely' predicted that the world would witness a few of these disasters again in the near future,invariably.

    Rohini Sakata Bhedanam-2 (Saturn's tenth aspect)

    There are many people who consider the effects of Saturn as terrible and bad.I don't think so.I consider the effects of Saturn on human life as good.

    Saturn's positioning as well as his aspect,both are very good in my view.One may be scared to know my view.Let me explain.

    What is considered as bad by the world looks good to the Yogis.Conversely,what is good to the world is bad to them.

    Let me cite a verse from the Gita(2:69)

    When it is dead of night to the world
    The self controlled Yogi is wide awake then
    Wherein other beings are awake
    He looks at it as a dark night

    The world is unnecessarily scared of Saturn.It should not be.Saturn makes us suffer no doubt,but this suffering is the result of our past karma.He never punishes a single human being without a valid reason behind.Saturn's influence clears our backlog Karma.He cleanses us of our karmic weight.He urges us to unload our backpack.He makes us pure.

    In my view-Saturn is a great purifier.

    Without the influence of Saturn,human life becomes a worst boredom very quickly.Human life loses direction without Saturn.It is Saturn's influence that makes the life of many in western countries a perpetual boredom.It is because of Saturn many people both in East and West fall preys to bouts of depression.

    People never realize easily that their sufferings are nothing but their Karmic retributions.They wont believe easily if some one knowledgeable in these matters advises them so.All they want is a comfortable,care free life forever.

    The other day,I was in a temple.

    The priest was noting down the Gotras of devotees before commencing the worship.

    So I told him-'Why do you ask them their Gotras? Everyone of them belongs to Yayati gotra invariably.No need to ask them again.'

    People never take life in right sense.The reason is they never believe in Karma.If they start believing in Karma and start seeing things in their right sequence,then they can understand life's mysteries.

    Many people keep on asking me remedies for Saturn.I never prescribe the usual Pujas done everywhere.My method of remedies is different.

    Now,let me look at Saturn's 10th aspect on star Rohini and its effects on us.

    Whenever Saturn transits on Leo 17 th degree,he looks at Taurus 17 th degree.Every time this happens in the skies,it can be roughly called a type of 'Rohini Sakata Bhedana'.

    Let us look at the times when this stellar event happened and what happened,as a result,on the Earth.

    1) Saturn was in Leo 17 degrees between 2007-08.

    There was the worst kind of global financial crisis at that time.After the great depression of 1930s,this was another global crisis of similar nature.

    2) Before that,Saturn travelled in Leo between 1977 and 1978.

    At that time,Blizzard of 1977 shook western New York badly,with tons of snow everywhere,causing loss of millions of dollars.

    At the very same time,the state of AP in India was hit by a worst kind of cyclone called 'Divi Seema' Cyclone.About 50,000 perished and property worth 500 million dollors was damaged.

    3) Saturn travelled over Leo in 1948-49

    Around the same time,about 5 lakhs of people perished in the border clashes during the partition of India.

    There happened many natural disasters and transport disasters around the world.I am not taking them into account here.

    4) Earlier to that Saturn was in Leo in 1918-19.

    The world was hit by a worst kind of Flu Pandemic at that time.It attacked nearly 500 million people worldwide killing 50-100 millions.

    The sad and unforgettable incident of 'Jalian Wala Bagh' took place in India.

    I am not describing the Earthquakes and Floods that had hit the globe at that time for obvious reasons.

    5) Before that,again,Saturn travelled in Leo from 1889-1890.

    The great Seattle fire burned down most of that city.

    The great Bakersfield fire destroyed the whole town burning down about 196 buildings.

    Santiago Canyon fire destroyed Orange county and San Diego county.

    6)Before that,Saturn touched Leo from 1859-1860.

    The globe was hit by a powerful 'Solar Storm' which affected the Earth's magnetic field very badly.This is called the Solar Storm of 1859 or the Carington Event.

    At the same time,there occured a severe storm called 'The Royal Charter Storm' in the Irish sea.
    From the above incidents,it is clear that,whenever Saturn travelled in Leo,he looks at star Rohini with his 10th aspect,thereby triggering world disasters.

    However,the destruction that was wrought when he touches Leo was much less in intensity than that was triggered when He was in Taurus.This is because,his aspect is less violent than his position.

    Now let me explain Saturn's other aspects and their 'horrible' results in my next post.

    Rohini Sakata Bhedanam-World wide disaster trigger-Wonder of Indian Astrology

    We hear this word 'Rohini Sakata Bhedanam' very often in our Puranas.This phenomenon was observed during the times of Ramayana and Mahabharatha in India.Great wars and destruction happened everytime this peculiar phenomenon appeared in the sky.

    Emperor Dasaradha,the celebrated father of Sri Rama observed this event in the skies and becomes apprehensive of some great mass destruction or danger to the country.

    It forebodes evil and destruction
    When Saturn leaves Krittika and nears Rohini
    Sages call this "Breaking of Rohini's wain"
    It brings great sorrow and misery

    The gods and demons are terrified
    and a famine of twelve years ensues
    The villages and towns are ruined
    The whole world says-"Here comes Fear"

    Emperor Dasaradha authored a grand hymn to appease Lord Saturn and it is known as "King Dasaradha's Hymn to God Saturn".It is available in Brahmanda Purana and is chanted by millions of Indians even today to ward off the bad effects of Saturn.It really works wonders.

    Let us look into Mahabharatha where we find a couple of verses describing this event.

    Saturn tortures the star of Prajapathi
    And the world will soon be under torture

    O King! The star Rohini is tortured by Saturn
    Moon is devoid of lustre; Great fear lurks everywhere

    We see the above verses in the Ramayana and the Mahabharatha. But we never care to understand them in clear terms.We brush them aside as fiction.How did we degenerate into such a pitiable state?

    The reasons are not far to seek.English education is one,forgetting Sanskrit is another and there are a plethora of other reasons like-alienation of our scriptures from us,parental ignorance, and disinterestedness on our part in exploring our scriptures.

    Our Puranas are not fictitious stories invented and woven by lunatic brains.They are faithful records of our sages intended to pass on their ancient knowledge down to posterity.

    Now,let us look into the definition of 'Rohini Sakata Bhedanam' as described in the famous astronomical work -'Surya Siddhantha'

    "When an object with a south declination of slightly more than 2 degrees passes through Vrishabha Rasi at 17 degrees,then it breaks the wain of Rohini".

    The celebrated ancient astrologer VarahaMihira described Rohini Sakata Bhedanam' in his magnum opus 'The Brihat Samhitha',two thousand years ago,thus:

    "When the wain of Rohini is broken by Saturn or Mars or Sikhi,then alas,the world is drowned in a sea of sorrows".

    Now,the star cluster 'Rohini' has 5 stars forming a triangle shaped thing in the centre.When Saturn or Mars or Sikhi(a mateor or Ketu) passes through this triangle near Alpha,Epsilon and Gama Tauri,then it is called 'Breaking of Rohini's wain'.

    It might not be possible for Saturn,due to its distance from this area,to pass exactly at 17 degrees Vrisha with 2 degrees south declination.However,he touches the star Rohini once in every 30 years approximately.

    Let us look into the world disasters that occured whenever Saturn touched this point in the skies.

    Effects of Saturn on human beings are real as could be seen from the above narration.Every time he touched star Rohini,it induced worldwide destruction.

    How could Indian sages foresee all these events? How could they,in the remote past of 7000 BC could note down the ominous stellar events that triggered mass destruction and natural disasters?

    Leaving the past behind,let us look ahead to find out when is Saturn going to touch Rohini again in the near future.

    It is in 2031-2032.

    What could it foretell?

    Would the wars between the Jews and Arabs or between the two major religions of the world,escalate into a third world war by then?Or would there be world wide destruction again in some form or the other when Saturn transits the star Rohini in 2031-32?

    Let us wait and watch.
