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.

1) Saturn was in Rohini star from May 2001 to June 2002 recently.
  • On 11-9-2001 the twin towers were destroyed in USA killing about 5000 people.
  • We can understand its impact better,if we understand the sense of scare it created in America's mindset.It started doubting every Asian after that day.

The above facts are enough to prove that 'Rohini Sakata Bhedana' described in Indian Scriptures is nothing but truth.

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.
