We are all born with fixed longevity and fixed prosperity . With every success of accurate predictions by Astrologer , the Pruchchaka(client) wonders whether there is any scope for improvement in life , there seems to be definiteness in everything that this astrologer predicts. what am i doing.
a student thinks well i have good time i am going to get the grades , what use is extra study. what use is extra efforts?
shastra clearly reject such thinking. a new born baby ‘s life is not predictable for atleast 24 years. because death may come to the child due to its own past sins within first four years, next 16 years child may die due to sins of mother and or father. hence child should be taken care of through medication , pious living, and homa and other autereties.
secondly longevity and wealth of the humans are fluctuating day by day with their deeds. a bad deed brings down life and wealth. a good deed increases. for eg. eating in a iron plate decreases life, cutting one’s hair on saturday decreases life span. irregular sexual habits decreases span of life. etc.
daily poojas , devotion to elders and dieties bring about good fortune and increase in wealth and longevity. Assume a man leads a 100 years life.
360 days for a year (savana year not solar) makes up 36000 days and 36000 nights.Human body has 72000 nadis. As everyday/night passes each nadi is swichted off .a mere look at man can tell about his age and fortunes by the study of his state of nadi , a knowledge held secret . With an evil karma , many nadis forcibly gets deactivated (devoid prana)as a result of divine will. and men loses his lustre. At the time of death soul resists yama pasa by hiding in each and available nadi. but finds no recluse.finally when prana is empty it has to leave along with yamaduta.
Men has to perform good deeds when there is strength and age on his side. increase his longevity. God brings humans into this world to understand HIM, eyes to look at his image, ears to listen about his Glory, mouth to eat his prasad, speak about his Glorious qualities feet to visit his temple. hand to do his archana. Astrilogers can only predict they are not the masters of destiny, they are only for guidance , believe in purushartha.
so make hay when sun shines. Appease lord and get his blessings for Poorna ayus and poorna sampathi .
